YA Friday

It's #YA Friday and today, instead of making a booklist inspired by a topic, a movie, or a television show, we're experimenting with reading mood boards inspired by popular aesthetics: cottagecore and dark academia.  Whether you're looking to embrace all things pastoral or dig into a moody academic mystery, DPL staff have book recommendations for you.



Book featured: The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien, The Tea Dragon Society by K O'Neill, Tuck Everlasting by Natalie Babbit, Redwall by Brian Jacques, Echo Mountain by Lauren Wolk, Root Magic by Eden Royce, Pilu of the Woods by Mai K. Nguyen, Kiki's Delivery Service by Eiko Kadono
