Buckle up, friends – my teen librarian Ms. D. asked for help coming up with more specific lists for teen speculative fiction. We’ve been brainstorming book titles together and came up with four lists worth. This one has a fair amount of overlap with my last list, which is why it’s coming first. Meanwhile, if you have any ideas of books to fit the themes “Modern Magic” or “Magical History” where I want books set in real earth history but with magic by own voices authors, please let me know!
