The Christmas Box House 

Book Nook Wish List 

  • Our greatest need at this point is for popular teen fiction. The list below includes books that are often chosen from our collection or that have been specifically requested by teens in shelter with us:                                                            
    •    Michael Vey Series, Richard Paul Evans
    •    Anything by John Green, James Dasher, or Rick Riordan
    •    Vanishing Girls, Lauren Oliver
    •    The Start of You and Me, Emery Lord
    •    The Mime Order, Samantha Shannon
    •    The Disreputable History of Frankie Ladau-Banks, EE Lockhart

    •    All the Bright Places, Jennifer Niven
    •    All Fall Down, Ally Carter
    •    To All the Boys I've Loved Before, Jenny Han
    •    The Maze Runner Series, especially the latest release, Fever Code
    •    Comic Strip Book collections (like Calvin and Hobbes, Far Side, Garfield, I Am Pusheen the Cat, etc.)
    •    Child appropriate Graphic Novels (El Deafo, Roller Girl, The Graphic Novels of the Percy Jackson Series, etc.)

    Of course, we can’t always stay on top of the latest and greatest book trend, so asking an associate at any book store for suggestions for popular teen fiction picks is also a good way of assuring that the books you donate will be exciting for the teens to read. 

    Note: Teen classics (books you’d be assigned to read in middle school/high school-like To Kill a Mockingbird, Grapes of Wrath, The Outsiders, etc.) don’t tend to fly off our shelves. Perhaps they've already read them in school and want something new to read.
