Top 50 New Books at BPL

This is a list of the top 50 check-outs from NEW BOOKS at Burbank Public Library (all branches), in order of check-outs (most to least) for the past three months. The books that are listed in bold-face have been reviewed on this blog. As usual, there is an eclectic mix of what seem to be Burbank teens' favorite genres: fantasy, dystopic and apocalyptic novels, and books featuring all types of paranormal characters. Sprinkled throughout are also some science fiction, a few fairy tales retold, some realistic fiction, and a mystery or two, and of course quite a few sequels to popular books / continuations of series.
