  4. We'll work on the vampires and werewolves list. Thanks! As for the Ancient Egypt books, some of them are in the Prehistoric and Ancient Cultures list. We don't have enough to do a full list of just Ancient Egypt but this link brings up all of our young adult novels about Ancient Egypt (with a couple of not-quite-on-topic books thrown in):

  6. We can work on that. Do you mean young adult fiction books based on Greek, Roman, and various other myths like the Percy Jackson series?

    1. Hi. Yes we do! It's under the "Nonfiction" category and the list is called "Graphic Novels and Manga for Teens." It doesn't include everything we have, just some of the more recently purchased titles. If you have any purchase suggestions for new titles, please let us know. Thanks!

  16. I will create a fantasy booklist this fall. I will try to focus this list on newer fantasy reads, as there are so many titles in the fantasy genre!

  17. It would be nice to have a horror book section. This is a great website.

    ReplyDelete
  18. sci-fi would also be cool come to think about it! Thanks!

  19. I think that there should be a little more variety on the awards because they seem clustered on one same type. I also think the nominee process should be changed a little bit

  20. Great book list!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I don't know if the Teen's Top ten Nominees are the display or not. Is it the same?

    ReplyDelete

      Great question! Since we have so few young adult books set in Antarctica, it is best to search for them using the online catalog. Go to: http://tinyurl.com/jbjm732 In the first search box, select search by "subject Keyword" and type in "Antarctica." Scroll further down to "limits" and select "Young Adult Fiction" or "Young Adult Non-Fiction." Hope this helps! If you need additional help, contact the College Hill Information Desk at 303-658-2603 or the Irving Street Information Desk at 303-658-2302.
