Each month, a group of teens gets together at our Anythink Wright Farms branch to discuss our favorite reads from the past month. Back in October, we gushed about our favorite spooky books. Despite all the horror enthusiasts in the room, most teens were excited about reading genre-bending works that mix fantasy, science fiction, thriller, and horror. Read more about their picks below, and stay tuned for more recommendations from the book squad.

The heat of our fiery sun tends to weaken me this time of year. It's because of this that I harken back to a show I've long loved. It features "a friendly desert community where the sun is hot, the moon is beautiful, and mysterious lights pass overhead while we all pretend to sleep."
