Teen Talk with Renée: Have you heard? It’s TeenTober!

Check out TeenTober Book Picks!

Yes, it may be officially spooky season, but more importantly, it’s TeenTober! What the heck is TeenTober and how could it possibly be more important than scary movies, sweaters, and ghost-shaped sugar cookies, you ask?

TeenTober is a nationwide celebration hosted by libraries every October that aims to celebrate teens, promote year-round teen services and the innovative ways teen services helps teens learn new skills, and fuel their passions in and outside the library.

I can think of no better way to celebrate all the wonderful teens who frequent the Lafayette Library, volunteer their time, and are passionate about reading, than to hear from them:

Aarnav J recommends:

My favourite read was The Alchemist, Paulo Coelho, as it had a cool plot and was based outside of America and Europe, where a lot of the books I read are.


Anne N recommends:

I would like to recommend the book “Poison Study” by Maria V. Snyder. This book is about a girl who was supposed to be executed for a murder she committed, but instead is chosen to take on the risky task of being the poison tester for the Commander of their country. Along the way she gets caught in a game of politics, unknowing who is the enemy or friend. This book also has a touch of magic, so it is great for fantasy lover

I would like to recommend the book “Daughter of the Pirate King” by Tricia Levenseller. This is a super face paced and exciting book about the daughter of the Pirate King as she goes undercover on an enemy ship as their prisoner. There is lots of action and a touch of romance. It is easy and enjoyable to read if you want something quick and light!

Thank you teens for the wonderful book reviews, for keeping the Library real, and for just being you! You all deserve a plate of hot, straight-out-of-the-oven, ghost cookies. Enjoy!

Until next time,

All the best,
