I hope that 2016 will be a good year for everyone. Strangely, it has been an extremely cold winter for us living here in California, although I must say that chilly weather is the perfect time to get out your favorite books are read away! Does anyone have a bookish New Year’s resolution for 2016? Every year I tell myself that I want to read over 100 books for the year. I don’t think I ever really make it to 100, but it’s an admirable goal, don’t you think? Let us know some of your bookish resolutions by posting pictures of you with your favorite books on our Teen Instagram @ccclibteens. We would love to hear what you are reading right now! If you need some ideas on what to read, you can also check out the teen book lists on our website. I especially love books that have been made into movies because you can read the book and see the movie! Speaking of movies, movie marathons are also perfect for cold winter weekends! I had a lengthy discussion about which movie series are the best to watch, and a few that were mentioned were Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings & The Hobbit, and the Hunger Games!
