We might have mentioned before how much we love science fiction, and the fact that this year’s summer reading theme is Science. Actually: Science!! It needs an exclamation point. 

So, we’ve put together a really, really, incredibly huge booklist (working title? The Hive) for fans of science and fantasy fiction - and we added a little something extra, since, if you’re anything like us, when you love reading a genre, you love to watch films and shows, and play video games, in that same genre. 

And if you’re playing Reading Bingo this summer with us for Summer Reading - or if you’re planning to take part in our Summer Fling (With a Book)! matchmaking program - then these books will definitely see you through summer and beyond!

I like this format a lot.

Totally stealing this for displays in our Teen Center.

Hahaha, steal away!  And add to it!  If we’d had more room, we would have added more books, trust us. :)  

Have we mentioned before how much we love the Pickerington Library? Well, it bears repeating. Also, if you haven’t read READY PLAYER ONE, go do it. RIGHT NOW.

YA Books About Transgender Characters

There haven’t been a lot of young adult books published about transgender characters. This list is not meant to be a “best of” list — it is simply a list of the titles that we are aware of, and we are sure there are more we aren’t aware of. This list is limited to titles published specifically for a young adult audience, which means titles published for adults that teens might still enjoy aren’t included.

Do you have a favorite YA book about a transgender character? Please tell us why you loved it!


I’ve been wanting to branch out and read other genres.  A Western has been on this list for awhile, but my husband reminded me that I have read a Western—- Doc by Mary Doria Russell.  Epitaph follows Wyatt Earp’s story.  So looking forward to this!  Out in March 2015.
