Oh the hype. Teen books get a lot of it - and sometimes don't live up to it. We love that Epic Reads has taken the time to list a few titles that stand out.
After Hours is back! Join us this Friday, May 12th @ 5 p.m. just after the library closes. Have your library fines deleted, help choose our next teen titles and plug your playlist into the surround sound. This month's alluring bookish prizes include: new books signed by the author, a Novely Yours candle, a Hogwarts Journal and other exciting finds. We can't wait!

"Did you ever crack open a book for the first time, and read a first line that was so amazing you just HAD to devour the entire book immediately? This happens to us frequently. Epic Reads put together a quick flick representing some of their favorites. What is your favorite first line from a book? Tell us in the comments below and then hit up the library and find these books on display! *book shimmy!*"
Thank you again Epic Reads! We can't get over how simply outstanding you are.
