Hidden Gems- February Staff Recommendations

Feb 15, 2024 | Hidden Gems

Looking for something new and different to read, look no further than this month’s staff picks! Each month we give a staff member a few prompts to pick some of their favorite books. February’s staff picks were chosen by our teen clerk Isaac.

What has been your favorite book of 2023?

My favorite book of 2023 has been The Hobbit, by J. R. R. Tolkien. It is an action/adventure story following a hobbit who goes on an adventure, doing unexpected things.

The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien is available as a physical copy in either library as well as on Libby in audiobook and e-book forms.

What is a children’s book that you think everyone should read?

A children’s book that I think everyone should read is the Magic Tree House series. It follows two kids who have a magic tree house that takes them to the past, reliving history.

The Magic Tree House series of books by Mary Pope Osbourne is available in physical copies at either library as well as on Libby in audiobook and e-book forms.

What upcoming release you are excited about?

An upcoming release I am excited about is Percy Jackson and the Olympians: Wrath of the Triple Goddess. This book is book 7 of the Percy Jackson series and is set to release on September 24. 2024.

Wrath of the Triple Goddess by Rick Riordan will be available as a physical copy in the library and will likely be on Libby in audiobook and e-book forms when it releases later this year.
