Finding the right genre is one way to ensure an enjoyable read. Adults tend to enjoy historical fiction, romance, thrillers and suspense and mysteries. They also enjoy non-fiction. Young readers often prefer paranormal, science fiction, fantasy and dystopian stories or real-life issue stories. 

Here are some new titles for this summer’s reading pleasure.
