While you wait for Breaking Dawn...

For all the Twilight series fans out there, Stephenie Meyer's fourth book Breaking Dawn was released on Saturday, August 2nd! Be sure to put a Library copy on hold for yourself; you can do that by using the catalog, coming into the Library or giving us a call! The waiting list for the new book is pretty long, so we have compiled a list of books and authors that have similar themes as the Twilight series. This way you have something to keep you occupied while you wait for your copy of Breaking Dawn!
