Here’s the Teen space at Elmhurst Public Library AKA my new home base!
Whenever I move I immediately go to the public library to scope out their collections of my favorite genres and wowwwwww. Guys I’m not going to run out of books to review until I graduate. They have a shelf and half of Hopkins!
Big or small I love teen spaces. Upload pics of your local library’s teen collection and tag it #htbh teen space. For the next week I’ll reblog them! Be sure to include where the photo was taken and your favorite book in the collection.
Elmhurst Public Library fights back against unclear book design
Because the villain knows that without the hero to hate, his life would be empty. Once he’s murdered his adversary, he’s alone.
You are in my blood. I can’t help it. We can’t be anywhere except together.
