What you are reading! Top 50s...

We haven't done this for a while, so let's explore the list of most-checked-out YA new books at Burbank Public Library for the past three months, in descending order, most check-outs to least check-outs. Note that some of these come up as new even though they are NOT, because we ordered extra copies due to popularity and demand (such as Allegiant, The Fault In Our Stars, etc.), OR because we had to replace a damaged or discarded copy with a new one:

Allegiant / Veronica Roth
City of Heavenly Fire / Cassandra Clare
The Rule of Thoughts / James Dashner

Isla and the Happily Ever After /
     Stephanie Perkins
Amity / Micol Ostow
Say What You Will / Cammie McGovern
The One / Kiera Cass
The Young Elites / Marie Lu
Sanctum / Madeleine Roux
Love is the Drug / Alaya Dawn Johnson
I Am the Weapon / Allen Zadoff
Hollow City / Ransom Riggs
A Thousand Pieces of You / Claudia Gray
Sinner / Maggie Stiefvater
Sea of Shadows / Kelley Armstrong

Ruin and Rising / Leigh Bardugo
The Infinite Sea / Rick Yancey
I Am the Mission / Allen Zadoff

To All the Boys I've loved Before / Jenny Han
A Midsummer Night's Scream / R.L. Stine
100 Sideways Miles / Andrew Smith
We Were Liars / E. Lockhart
Uncaged / John Sandford & Michele Cook
Sway / Kat Spears
Noggin / John Corey Whaley
Nearly Gone / Elle Cosimano
Heir of Fire / Sarah J. Maas
Glory O'Brien's History of the Future / A.S. King
Fractured / Sarah Fine
The Fault in Our Stars / John Green

There are lots of sequels to popular books on this list; and some series that are hanging in there a lot longer than you might have expected! Some well-known authors, a few unknowns or first-time writers, but nothing too surprising. A fair amount of dystopian and fantasy is represented here, although I can see a slight turn toward realistic fiction (or at least magical realism). The books we or one of our guest or teen writers have reviewed are bold-faced, with links to the reviews--not as many as we would have liked to read and review of these!

In a couple of days, we will do the list of the 50 most popular NON-new books...
