Today’s “Staff Picks” post offers more reading suggestions within the fantasy classification. It’s been said that reading fantasy novels can help us make sense of the world we’re living in and even offer solutions to the challenges we do face. So, while we don’t have actual dragons to slay, life is full of challenges we must face. One could argue that reading about how fictional characters conquer their obstacles allows our subconscious to figure out our own solutions—plus reading fantasies is a whole lot of fun. 

The following titles are all classified as YA or young adult novels, but don’t let that stop you from checking them out and reading them no matter your age!
