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 OWWL.org 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!

Here are some books that the Newark Public Library owns...

Jade Green by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
Looking for Alaska by John Green
Road of the Dead by Kevin Brook
Shadowland by Meg Cabot
A Certain Slant of Light by Laura Whitcomb
Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin
Keturah and Lord Death by Martine Leavitt

Check out the Hallowmere series by Tiffany Trent. It's great! Besides getting "sucked" into it...wait until you sink your teeth into the 4th book to see the darker side of the Fey Prince.

Let me know what you think! I hope the library can buy the books that are out...not sure if they own it since I didn't check. But they are out in paperback so cheap.
