Students all around the school read books in their free time to open their world of imagination. The Naples High School library offers a variety of genres that will grab the attention of many. Once the high schooler completes a book, the specialist will provide more popular choices that others have chosen too.
“Concrete Rose by Angie Thomas has been popular,” media specialist Liddy Sexton said. “The author takes the reader back 17 years before the events of The Hate You Give to show how Starr’s dad, Mav, left a gang, chose a clean life and became a good dad.”
Though the book is considered to be a well-liked novel by some students, others might think otherwise.
“This is a tough question because there are so many great choices and not everyone has the same taste,” Sexton said.
Walking into a library is like going through another dimension with all the variety of colors and shelves that measure to the ceilings. Students like to choose books that work with their imagination.
“I love immersing myself in another world, and fantasy and adventure books do just that,” sophomore Mcknight Welzbacher said.
Each and every high schooler will say one novel is more popular than the other because they enjoy the way a specific author writes.
“I’ve checked out the series Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard as well as the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Mass,” sophomore Natalie Hyer said.
These two books are both in the fantasy genre, but their plots are contrasting.
“Red Queen is about a world where there are two types of people: people with red and silver blood. People with silver blood possess incredible powers and rule over the red-blooded commoners,” Hyer said. “The Throne of Glass Series tells the story of an 18-year-old assassin named Celaena Sardothien who was plucked out of her life sentence of working in the Endovier Salt Mines and is offered one shot of freedom.”
All books become popular in their own way, and the words inside the bindings can tell the reader just that.
“They bring you into a world with so many new possibilities,” Hyer said.
