What We Read Last Week, Part 6: Alan H. & The Infinite Procastination

August 9, 2010 | Alan H.

I am 1/3rd of the way through Will Grayson, Will Grayson and wishing I'd started reading it earlier so I could be finished it by now.

I've been reading a lot Jim Butcher lately.  His books aren't classed as "young adult" but I think older teens into fantasy might enjoy either of his two series:

  • The Dresden Files, a long-running series about a wizard / private detective in modern-day Chicago.  Storm Front is the first of them. 
  • The Codex Alera, a somewhat more conventional epic fantasy series, but very good and with an interesting setting.  Furies of Calderon starts the series.

So--in addition to the usual "what did everyone else read last week?" question, I'll ask another from you "young adults": do you read non-YA books as well?  When did you start?  What are some non-YA books that you think teens would enjoy?

Alan H. is a web librarian at Toronto Public Library.  He hasn't qualified as a young adult for quite some time now.
