As 2019 draws to a close, many lists are spotlighting the best of the year. Every year, the New York Public Library curates a list of its Best Books for Teens -- this year, that list includes two Marvel books! Marvel Powers of a Girl by Lorraine Cink and Ironheart, Vol. 1: Those With Courage written by Eve L. Ewing both made the NYPL's list of top reads for teenagers.

Here's what the NYPL said about each book, both of which are available to purchase wherever books are sold:

Marvel Powers of a Girl

NYPL: "A timeless tribute to the women of the Marvel Universe packed full of gorgeous illustrations." (Get an inside look at the book right here!)

Powers of a Girl

Ironheart, Vol. 1: Those With Courage
