Curating this booklist brings back many fond memories of mine as I used to teach EFL (English as a Foreign Language) while living as an ex-pat overseas. If you’re an educator like I am, you are well aware that finding suitable reading material can be both arduous and heartbreaking. I hope this list makes it a bit easier for you.
We often look for ourselves in books (okay, mostly in fiction), but undeniably: a great book resonates with us as we empathize with a protagonist’s struggles, triumphs, etc. It encourages us to step into their shoes as they set off on their fantastic journeys.
Are you a manga or anime enthusiast? We are, too! We are constantly looking for new (and awesome) titles to add to our collection. We are happy to share some of our favorites with you, including some light novels! For more suggestions, please feel free to contact your teen librarian at the Library!
