Barrett Booknotes: A Great Teen Series for Summer

Welcome to Barrett Booknotes, a blog from Darien’s independent bookstore that focuses on what we do best – recommending great books suited to your specific tastes.

Here at , Hannah Vogel is one of our teen readers extraordinaire. She is a local 14-year-old girl who inhales books the way other people take in air.

Hannah will occasionally provide reviews of books from a teen perspective. Her first focuses on a series for young adults, The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare:

This series was amazing, and I am currently waiting for the next book to come out.  Cassandra Clare has created an utterly believable world filled with magic and magical beings.  But, these books are not so filled with fantasy that they are too hard to believe, in fact, they were very believable and were a nice refreshing break from the usual teen vampires and werewolves.  This series is possibly one of the best I’ve read. 

So, if you're looking for a great series to read this summer, stop by Barrett's and pick up a copy!
