Stephen King books for young adults

Today I helped a family look for classic Stephen King books that tweens and teens might like. You wouldn't expect a list like that to be very long, given that he's a horror writer. Still, I found lots of books that young adults could pick up and read and still sleep at night (maybe).

The library has a book recommendation tool called NoveList. It's one of our online resources that you can log into from home with a resident library card and password. NoveList has a genre called "Adult books for young adults," which helps younger readers branch out from the Young Adult Fiction section and find good books on the first floor as well. Lo and behold, 27 of Stephen King's books fit this criteria for NoveList. 

Here is a quick PDF view of the list of Stephen King books for younger readers.

Going to the online resource directly will let you find the book in the catalog where you can place a hold. The way to find it is to do the following Advanced Search:

NoveList Advanced Search

The list has both classics and contemporary novels. The "View Copies Available" button is where you can get to the book in the ICPL catalog. It's not 100% accurate because it's hard for it to tell if a book has been withdrawn. Click there to place a hold whether the book is available or not.  Place a hold in the library catalog


Happy horror reading!

P.S. I love NoveList so much that my last blog post was dedicated to it as well. It's a great tool to get to know!
