    "The war against Voldemort is not going well; even the Muggles have been affected. Dumbledore is absent from Hogwarts for long stretches of time, and the Order of the Phoenix has already suffered losses. And yet . . . as with all wars, life goes on. Sixth-year students learn to Apparate. Teenagers flirt and fight and fall in love. Harry receives some extraordinary help in Potions from the mysterious Half-Blood Prince.

    "I didn't have any expectations when I picked up this book, but I wish I had known ahead of time what to expect. The Lovely Bones cuts deep. It is a heart-wrenching, moving, painful story told in a beautiful way that held my attention and put me into the world it described. Not only does the story detail relationships and characters in a memorable way, it deals with a very important subject that, to me, only made the book more meaningful."

    "When you read In Cold Blood by Truman Capote you certainly get the feeling that he actually witnessed this brutal quadruple murder that took place in rural Kansas in the late 1950's. In Cold Blood is spellbinding and a true American masterpiece. "

    "In the early days of the Civil War, rumors of gold in the frozen Klondike brought hordes of newcomers to the Pacific Northwest. Anxious to compete, Russian prospectors commissioned inventor Leviticus Blue to create a great machine that could mine through Alaska's ice. Thus was Dr. Blue's Incredible Bone-Shaking Drill Engine born. But on its first test run the Boneshaker went terribly awry, destroying several blocks of downtown Seattle and unearthing a subterranean vein of blight gas that turned anyone who breathed it into the living dead. Now it is sixteen years later, and a wall has been built to enclose the devastated and toxic city. Just beyond it lives Blue's widow, Briar Wilkes. Life is hard with a ruined reputation and a teenaged boy to support, but she and Ezekiel are managing. Until Ezekiel undertakes a secret crusade to rewrite history. His quest will take him under the wall and into a city teeming with ravenous undead, air pirates, criminal overlords, and heavily armed refugees. And only Briar can bring him out alive"

    ""Silver in the Blood" is a great historical novel. Written by Jessica Day george, with great characters.

If you like sweeping adventures, blood soaked evenings and strong female friendships, this is the book for you."

    "I read this book during my senior year in high school. This book was a roller coaster of emotions for me. It started out so light hearted and loving, in other words, boring. By chapter 4 I was hooked. The book had many twist and turns, none of which I saw coming. The darkness in the book made it impossible to put down. Since i first read the book, I've reread it at least a dozen times since. And will probably reread it another dozen times. "

    "U=I loved this, it reminded me of the anita blake series. Cas is a ghost hunter, the book is riveting. I love that this story was told from a male POV. You don't really see that very often, and it was a nice change. The author did a great job getting inside Cas's head and made him a good narrator. This is the kind of book that, although is fun to read, has a major creepy feel to it too, along with some gore. I think the author did an amazing job with that, as I'm sure it wasn't easy to accomplish! I am very much looking forward to book two to see what happens!"

    "This is a great book for young readers. It won many awards for being a rich storytelling masterpiece. The title "Daughter of Smoke & Bone" really hooks you, just as the first chapter of this book will. I am not what you consider a young reader, being a little older than the target audience. But I still found the story decently enjoyable and would recommend this book!"
