The Underland Chronicles

Gregor the Overlander

"The Underland series is a dramatic series that leaves you hanging at every page! It was action-packed. It is about a family, Gregor, Boots, Lizzie, Mom and Dad. Gregor is doing laundry when Boots falls, Gregor jumps after her, falling, falling, falling, and falling. He lands near Regalia and gets caught up with prophecy. The end is horrible in my opinion. Other than that it is one of the best series of books I have read."

My Life in Black and White

My Life in Black and White

"The main character of this book has her identity tied up in her beauty. A freak car accident canges her face into a scarred mess. She has to come to terms with who she is. Overall it's an interesting story of finding out who you are. (At some moments the main character is absorbed in self-pity. It becomes a little monotonous, but other than that the books is very good!)"

The Demon Trapper's Daughter

Riley Blackthorne is not having a good year--her mom died of cancer, her dad is struggling to pay off the medical bills, and she isn't allowed to trap anything higher than a Grade One Demon. How is she ever supposed to move up in the Trappers' Guild?

Set in Atlanta in 2018, The Demon Trapper's Daughter explores a world in which economies are collapsing, demons roam the land, and life is getting pretty bleak. Riley has to figure out how to survive not only the loss of family and friends, but even day-to-day life. What's wrong with the Holy Water? Why do the demons call her by name? And how can she get her Guild to see her as more than a child?

Shadowfell

 

Shadowfell, the first in a new trilogy from Juliet Marillier, was a fascinating & satisfying read. Set in the medieval fantasy land of Alban, this dystopia follows Neryn as she tries to evade the king’s guards, called Enforcers. She’s especially dangerous to know/help, even more so than other fugitives, because she can see and converse with the fey (Red Cap, pookie, brollachan, urisk, naiad, etc.), a crime punishable by torture and death.

Graffiti in the Moonlight

 

Are you interested in street art, glassblowing, poetry, Australia, and/or intrepid young adult protagonists who embark upon overnight quests full of mystery, danger, betrayal, and redemption? If any of the above caught your eye, drew your attention, or even made you pause with a ho-hum of interest, try reading Graffiti Moon by Cath Crowley. This book will satisfy on all counts.
