These books are wildly popular on many social media outlets and lucky for you, dear reader, A.K. Smiley Public Library has the first book (Ice Planet Barbarians) and the second book (Barbarian Alien) in the series for you to stay up all night with. Get acquainted with Georgie and her friends as they acclimate to a world much different from their own.
Fans of the popular romance novel, The Love Hypothesis, by Ali Hazelwood, will be pleased to know her latest ‘STEMinist’ romance novel, Love on the Brain, will be released later this month, so place a hold on the book now.
