Check out these summer reading suggestions from our friends at the Sequoyah Regional Library System
Want to get some reading done during the summer? Whether you’re trying to stay active while school’s out or simply looking to relax, there’s something for all ages at the library. We’ve compiled a short list of recommendations for each age group to get you started. Remember, Sequoyah Regional Library System also offers titles in large print, eBook, and audiobook.
Popular titles right now include “The Library Book” by Susan Orlean, “The Radium Girls” by Kate Moore, and “Where the Crawdads Sing” by Delia Owens. Those who prefer magazines can use their library card to access the Flipster app, which offers digital issues of popular titles like Southern Living, National Geographic, Wired and more.
Popular titles include the Georgia Peach Book Award for Teen Readers nominees and winners (www.georgiapeachaward.org), including, “The Hate U Give” by Angie Thomas, “Scythe” by Neil Shusterman, and “Wonder Woman: Warbringer” by Leigh Bardugo. Audio lovers, check out SYNC (audiobooksync.com), a free summer program for teens that makes two popular audiobooks available on the OverDrive app for free.
Star Wars and Avengers are always popular, as are series like Dog Man (Dog Man: The Epic Collection: From the Creator of Captain Underpants), Lumberjanes, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid. We also offer titles from the Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl, TOME Society and Georgia Children’s Book Awards. And of course, our Summer Reading Program is A Universe of Stories, so we’ve got dozens of space-themed books.
