Liesl & Po

It’s no secret that I’m a fan of Lauren Oliver.  I loved Before I Fall, Delirium, and Pandemonium.  When I first heard that she was coming out with a novel for younger readers, I knew it would be as awesome as her young adult novels.  Well, I finished reading Liesl & Po this morning (I started it last night.), and it was even better than I thought it would be.  I’m going to give it the highest praise I can think of:  It reminded me of Neil Gaiman’s The Graveyard Book.  (I love Neil Gaiman…a lot.)  This book is sure to be a hit with elementary readers up through adults.  Anyone who enjoys stories filled with magic, sadness, and, most importantly, hope, will find Liesl & Po to be as enchanting as I did.

All sunshine has gone out of the world.  Life is dull and gray for everyone, especially two children, Liesl and Will, who want nothing more than the hope that things will get better…

Liesl spends her days and nights trapped in an attic by her vile stepmother. Her father passed away three days ago, and Liesl feels more alone than ever before. That’s about to change, though. When a ghost named Po–and his ghost pet Bundle–begin to visit Liesl from the Other Side, she doesn’t feel quite so alone. She even begins to hope that her life can change a little and that she can even find some way to reconnect with her father.

Will is an apprentice to an alchemist. He spends his days doing errands, assisting with potions, and never getting anything right. (He’s beginning to think his name is really “Useless.”) The only bright spot in Will’s life is looking at the girl in the attic window and wondering what it would be like if they were to ever meet. As fate would have it, he is about to find out…

When Will mistakenly switches a box full of powerful magic with the box that contains Liesl’s father’s ashes, forces collide that take Liesl, Po, Bundle, and Will on a path that will lead them to each other.  They will fight against evil, cruelty, loss, sadness, and some misunderstandings to get to something better than what they’ve known.  In the process, they will discover friendships that cross the boundary of death.  They may even find a way to make the world a brighter place for everyone.  After all, when magic and hope are involved, anything is possible.

I urge any and all librarians who work with children and young adults to add Liesl & Po book to your collections.  For those of you who aren’t librarians, add this book to your reading list.  It’s a wonderful book about overcoming loss and sadness and restoring color to a dull, gray existence.  Even in the darkest times, there is a sense of hope in this book and its characters that I think we could all use a dose of.  Read this book!  You won’t be sorry.

If you’re still not convinced, check out this awesome book trailer for Liesl & Po (from HarperKids):

The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight

Sometimes I like to put the fantasy, science fiction, and dystopia aside and just read a really good love story (though some of the more pessimistic among us would argue that love stories are also fantasies).  My most recent favorites have been Stephanie Perkins’ Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door.  Now I can add one more to that list:  The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith.  At first, I thought this book would be a romance between math nerds (which would have been totally cool with this former Palmetto High School Math Team member), but I was wrong.  At its core, this book is about how a chance meeting can change a person’s life forever…

Hadley Sullivan is running late. What’s worse is that she’s running late to something that she wants no part of in the first place–her father’s wedding to “that British woman” in London.  She misses her flight by about four minutes is forced to take the next plane–which will arrive at Heathrow approximately two hours before the blessed event.  A bit of a time crunch, to say the least.  So, now she has a time to kill in a crowded airport.  Time to think about how much she doesn’t want to see her dad or his new bride.  Time to worry about the flight and being trapped in a tube thousands of feet in the air.  Time to stew over what she said to her mom this morning.

Purely by chance (or fate, destiny, whatever you want to call it), Hadley meets Oliver, a London native (who’s kind of a looker) who will be sitting next to her on her upcoming flight.  The two hit it off instantly, and Hadley feels like she can tell Oliver anything…and she does.  She tells him little things about herself (favorite color, animal, etc.) as well as big things (how she feels about her dad and this wedding, how her relationship with her mom is going, and how things ended with her ex-boyfriend).  Oliver shares some stories of his own, including a glimpse of his relationship with his own father.  Hadley and Oliver are so wrapped up in getting to know each other that their time at the airport and the flight to London seem to pass in a blur.

Before either of them are ready, Hadley and Oliver arrive in London, and they are forced to go their separate ways–Hadley to the dreaded wedding, and Oliver to his own family drama.  Will they ever meet again, or has fate brought them together for only this one flight?  Will Hadley be able to get over her anger with her father and be part of his new life?  Will Oliver be able to deal with his own family issues?  Is there any hope that these two will meet again despite the odds?  What’s the probability that two young people could meet, fall in love, and find each other again in the span of 24 hours?  Find out when you fall in love with Jennifer E. Smith’s The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight!

Even though I totally knew there would be a happy ending, I was still enraptured by this story.  I love the idea that you can meet someone tomorrow, and that will ultimately be someone you’ll spend the rest of your life with.  If even one little thing had changed leading up to that meeting, entire lives could have been completely different.  It’s kind of cool (and scary) to think about.

I also enjoyed how Hadley–and even Oliver–explored their family situations.  Hadley spent much of the book angry at her dad–and her mom and future stepmother–and it was interesting to see how her views of those relationships evolved during the course of one very long day.  Oliver’s issues were thought-provoking as well and helped Hadley put her own problems in perspective.  In a lot of YA novels, the parents are secondary figures–and are often horrible–but this book allowed both characters and readers to see the humanness of parents.  We were all given a look into the relationships between husbands and wives, fathers and sons, fathers and daughters, and mothers and daughters.  These family dynamics are not always calm and smooth, but, at the end, these people are still family.

If you’re looking for a quick, fun, engaging read, I strongly urge you to give The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight a try.  You won’t be disappointed!

Silence

Before proceeding, please read the first two books in Becca Fitzpatrick’s Hush, Hush series (Hush, Hush and Crescendo).  If you have read these, you may still want to skim over them to refresh your memory (especially if you waited way too long between reading Crescendo and Silence…like someone I won’t mention).

As you have no doubt gathered by now, I just finished reading Silence, the third book in Becca Fitzpatrick’s Hush, Hush series. I’m still trying to figure out why I took so long to read this one, but I will say it was well worth the wait. In my most humble opinion, Silence is the best book in the series (so far). I loved Hush, Hush. I liked Crescendo. I was totally blown away by Silence. The emotion, angst, fear, and danger leapt off each page, and I was completely invested in everything the characters, particularly Nora, were going through. I cannot say enough good things about this book…but I’ll try.

*Side note: If’ it’s been a while since you read Crescendo, reread the last chapter before picking up Silence. It will make things so much easier for you. Trust me!*

The past five months are gone…at least that’s the way it seems when Nora Grey wakes up in a cemetery with no memory of how she got there.  She can’t remember anything beyond April…and it’s September.  She’s been missing since June, so why does her memory loss stretch back two more months?  What happened that was bad enough to erase her memory of it? 

Things have changed since Nora’s been gone–her mom is dating her mortal enemy’s dad, her best friend apparently thinks it’s now okay to lie to protect her, super strong bad guys are on the prowl, and Nora is having strange flashes of black that make her feel safe and loved.  What could these flashes mean, and who are they connected to?  Nora must piece together her fractured past in order to really figure out what’s going on in the present…before her future is destroyed.

When Nora crosses paths with a guy named Jev, she feels an instant connection…almost like she’s known and loved him before.  And she has.  Could Jev (also known as Patch) be the key to unlocking her memories?  When the fog finally clears, will Nora be prepared for what is in front of her–angels at war, an evil mastermind (who has a very strong connection with Nora), jealousy, and a love that is as boundless as the heavens?  What is her role in all this, and what is at stake? 

It’s a lot to take in, but Nora will do what she must.  Her memories were taken from her once before.  She won’t let anyone–or anything–rob her of her mother, her future, or the love of her life.  What will Nora have to sacrifice to save all she holds dear?  What will be sacrificed for her?  Embrace the Silence to find out!

I feel like this is one of the worst posts I’ve ever written.  That’s a shame because this book deserves more.  (I’m still three days from Spring Break, so give me a little leeway here.)  I almost felt Nora’s emotions the entire way through the book.  I even dreamed about this book last night.  (Sadly, there were no appearances by gorgeous guardian angels, but there’s always tonight!)  Silence is an awesome read that will keep fans of this saga captivated from the first page to the last.

We’ll get to see more of Nora and Patch in the fourth and final book in this series, Finale, due out on October 23rd this year.  No book cover yet, but I’ll post it here as soon as it’s released.

Still can’t get enough of this series?  Visit http://beccafitzpatrick.com/ and http://www.fallenarchangel.com/.  And check out the Silence book trailer below!

As I Wake

Occasionally, I come across a book that reminds me of a favorite television show.  That is the case with Elizabeth Scott’s As I Wake.  Throughout the book, I was comparing the events to that masterpiece of weirdness, Fringe (Fridays at 9pm on Fox).  Both As I Wake and Fringe deal–to a certain degree–with people crossing between alternate realities and the consequences of those “travels,” and both of them leave me very confused.  I don’t like being confused, but when we’re talking about alternate realities, I guess confusion is inevitable.

As I Wake begins with Ava. She just woke up, and she has no idea where she is, how she got here, or even her own name. Nothing–her mom, her friends, school, home–is familiar, and she has the unsettling sensation that she doesn’t belong here. Apparently, Ava has amnesia, but she senses that her memory loss goes much deeper than anyone knows.  What’s wrong with her?  And how can she fix it?

In dreams, Ava gets glimpses of another life…a life that is very different from the one she’s supposed to remember.  A life full of danger, conflict, spies, and loneliness.  A life that shows her past, including the boy that would change everything.  Are these really just dreams, or are they memories that someone has tried to suppress?  How can Ava possibly know what’s real and what’s not?

When Morgan, the boy from Ava’s dreams, appears in her strange new world, Ava knows that her dreams are really memories of her true life, the reality she was born into.  Can she get back to her old life with Morgan?  Why was she sent away from it to begin with?  Does she even want to return to a reality that held so much pain and danger…even if it did contain the love of her life?  The answers are not simple, and Ava’s decisions could mean the difference between life and death…and not just for her.  Find out what happens when Ava truly wakes up in As I Wake by Elizabeth Scott.

I mentioned that this book reminded me of Fringe, and it did.  At the end, I was left thinking “What the crap just happened?”  (This happens a lot when I watch Fringe.)  Unlike Fringe, though, I wasn’t really invested in the characters in As I Wake.  I’m still not sure what led Ava to be in an alternate reality, and I’d really like to know what happened to the Ava she replaced.  (I know that sentence was probably confusing.  Trust me.  I know how you feel.)  I want to know more about Ava’s work in her original reality, and why she felt so drawn to Morgan.  The author hinted that Ava and Morgan had known each other in other realities, even other time periods, but the idea wasn’t fully fleshed out.  I’d also like more information on some of the secondary characters.  Some of their stories are pretty complicated, and the book delved into those a little, but I didn’t feel that these characters had the depth that they could have.

All in all, As I Wake was an okay book.  I enjoyed that it made me think about physics and alternate realities, but the book could have been so much better had some of the plot lines been further explored.  I was not at all happy with the ending, and I think it could have been a lot clearer.  I still have no idea exactly what happened (and what it meant for the previous 268 pages).

I’ve read a couple of other books by Elizabeth Scott (The Unwritten Rule and Living Dead Girl), and I think both of them are much better written than As I Wake.  (Living Dead Girl still gives me nightmares.)

Pandemonium

Warning:  Read Delirium by Lauren Oliver before proceeding!!!

Yesterday was, in a word, wretched.  My students (and teachers) are so ready for Spring Break that I think all of us have mentally checked out.  Add to that a shocking and upsetting announcement at yesterday afternoon’s faculty meeting, and I was ready to go home and pull the covers over my head until summer.  The only thing that saved yesterday from being a complete wash was finishing Pandemonium, the second book in Lauren Oliver’s amazing Delirium series.  For a little while, I was able to escape into someone else’s problems (and Lena has problems that make mine pale in comparison).  I finished the book last night at around 7:00, and I spent what was left of my evening thinking about what happened and how it could impact Lena’s life in the next book.  So thank you to Lauren Oliver, who helped me to escape for a while.  Isn’t that what the best books do?

Pandemonium is told in two different time periods: “now” and “then.” “Then” is what happened immediately after the events of Delirium. “Now” is, of course, what Lena is currently going through. It’s kind of cool to see how the events of the past impact Lena’s present.

After escaping into the Wilds–without her beloved Alex–Lena is near death. Her salvation comes in the form of a group of people who will grow to be her new “family.” They will help her heal, force her to move on, and show her how to survive in these new and frightening circumstances. But Lena can never forget what–or who–brought her to this point, and she’ll soon have the opportunity to fight back against the corrupt system that believes love, or amor deliria nervosa, is a disease that must be eradicated at any cost.

As Lena battles against the system she once believed in wholeheartedly, she finds herself entangled in a plot that has the power to change everything.  She’s forced to unite with an enemy to survive, and her relationship with that “enemy” becomes very complicated.  If she’s friends–or possibly more–with someone she’s sworn to hate, what will her friends and allies think?  What will society think?  What would Alex think?

Lena is more confused than ever.  She doesn’t know who to trust or what anyone’s true agenda is, but she is sure of one thing.  She will fight for those she loves.  It might mean certain death.  It might mean losing the friends who’ve helped her survive.  It might throw the country–and her own life–into complete turmoil.  But Lena will do what she must.  Even if it kills her.  Maybe love is a disease.  If it is, Lena wants no part of the “cure.”  Find out just how far Lena is willing to go–and what the fallout will be–when you read Pandemonium, the gripping sequel to Lauren Oliver’s Delirium.

I am fully aware that I haven’t come close to capturing how great Pandemonium is.  I tried my best not to give too much away, especially for those who have not read Delirium yet.  (I’m not sure I’ve succeeded there either.)  Pandemonium is a great addition to the wealth of young adult dystopian literature out there, and I eagerly anticipate the third book in this trilogy, Requiem, due out in February of 2013.  There’s also a short story that gives readers a view of Hana’s experiences in Delirium.  It is, naturally, titled Hana, and is available as an eBook.

For now, dear readers, I will leave you.  I am preparing myself for an epic night for anyone who treasures young adult fiction–especially dystopian fiction.  That’s right.  I will be at the midnight premiere of The Hunger Games.  I’ve been looking forward to this for a while, and, if the early reviews are any indication, I will be one very happy movie-goer.  Have an awesome day, and “may the odds be ever in your favor.”

Daughter of Smoke and Bone

I don’t even know where to begin when it comes to my latest read, Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone.  This book was on my to-read pile for quite a while, and I finally began reading it exactly two weeks ago.  Well, as it so often does, life got in the way (work, sickness, family stuff, bought a new phone, librarian conference, etc.), and I wasn’t able to finish the book until this morning.  Anyway, I’m so glad I finally picked up Daughter of Smoke and Bone (at the suggestion of several fellow bloggers and librarians).  It was well worth every spare minute I spent devouring the world of Karou and Akiva.  Yes, it took me longer to finish this book than is normal, but, in a way, that’s good.  I was able to fully digest the story, appreciate the depth of the characters, analyze the intricacies of the plot, and think about what might be happening in the future.  (I was nearly always wrong, so kudos to Laini Taylor for keeping me guessing.)

Karou is not exactly a normal girl. Her hair is naturally blue, she is an artist in Prague, she speaks many languages–both human and not-so-human–she runs mysterious errands for her “family,” and she was raised by someone–or something–named Brimstone. No one takes her seriously when she talks about Brimstone and the other “monsters” in her world, and that’s okay with Karou. In certain circumstances, the less people know or believe, the better. But even Karou doesn’t know everything about herself. Brimstone won’t tell her about her parents, why she collects teeth from nefarious types all over the world, how the portals to his shop work, or what the other door in the shop leads to. Karou’s life is full of secrets, but when black handprints begin appearing on the portal doors to Brimstone’s lair, those secrets begin to reveal themselves…

Karou isn’t sure what’s going on, but she knows that danger is all around her…and when she’s attacked by someone who can only be described as an angel, she’s convinced that her family is threatened.  Oh, how right she is.  But why?  What does this angel have against the beings that have loved and cared for her forever?  And why is she so drawn to someone seemingly determined to destroy her entire world?

Akiva was bred to be a warrior, to battle the vile chimaera that have plagued his kind for centuries.  But his war against the hideous creatures goes even deeper.  He’s determined to bring an end to this war by any means necessary…until he encounters Karou.  Who is this blue-haired girl with the power of the chimaera and the face of an angel?  At first, Akiva is unsure about Karou’s connection to the chimaera, but he soon discovers that her connection to them–and him–goes far deeper than either of them thought possible.

Karou and Akiva seem to be inextricably linked, and, as they grow ever closer, the past, the present, and the future conspire to drive them further apart.  How can their fragile relationship hope to survive in a brutal war that has been tearing worlds apart for centuries?  And when long-held secrets are finally revealed, will their connection be severed forever…or will it unite them against the forces that seek to kill any hope for peace?  Explore the possibilities when you read Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor.

I shouldn’t even have to say this, but I will anyway (because it’s my blog, and I can do what I want to).  I adored this book.  It is unlike anything I’ve read in recent memory.  All at once, Daughter of Smoke and Bone is a fantasy, a tale of forbidden love, and a story of an epic, otherworldly war that rivals the myths of ancient civilizations the world over.  Every setting in the book was richly described, so much so that I now feel that I’ve actually been to Prague or Marrakesh.  The characters were flawed yet perfect in their own way.  It was difficult differentiate between “angel” and “devil” because each character had good and evil within them…just like all of us out here in the real world.

If you haven’t picked up Daughter of Smoke and Bone yet, do yourself a favor, and check it out soon.  It’s an amazing story that will definitely keep you on your toes.  It took me on a journey that was both unexpected and amazing, and I hope you’ll feel the same.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone is the first book in a trilogy.  Book two, Days of Blood and Starlight, is set to be released on November 6th of this year.  In the meantime, you can get more information on author Laini Taylor and Daughter of Smoke and Bone at http://www.lainitaylor.com/ and http://daughterofsmokeandbone.com/.  Enjoy!

Beautiful Redemption cover revealed!!!!

I know I’ve been going a little cover crazy recently, but I can’t help it! So many of my favorite series/authors are releasing the covers of their next books, and I simply must share the joyous news! The latest cover reveal (thanks to EW Shelf Life) is from the Beautiful Creatures series by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. The fourth and final novel in this saga, Beautiful Redemption, will be in stores on October 23rd.  I will buy the book as soon as humanly possible, and I’ll add this beautiful cover to those already on display.

Does the green lettering give readers a clue about Lena's fate? I wonder...

Beautiful Redemption joins Beautiful Creatures, Beautiful Darkness, and Beautiful Chaos in telling the tumultuous story of Ethan Wate and Lena Duchannes. The series, set in Low Country South Carolina, is a supernatural, Southern Gothic masterpiece that definitely keeps readers on their toes.

A movie adaptation of Beautiful Creatures, the first in the series, is already in the works, with filming set to begin in New Orleans in April. Emma Thompson, one of my favorite actresses, has been cast in the movie! According to IMDB.com, the movie should be out sometime in 2013.

Fallen in Love

If you’re as enamored of Lauren Kate’s Fallen series as I am, you’ve got to check out Fallen in Love, an anthology of stories featuring beloved characters from Fallen, Torment, and Passion.  If you haven’t read these books yet, please do so before diving into Fallen in Love.

Fallen in Love contains four very different stories, but they all share the same basic theme–love, and how it can ultimately save or destroy a person (or angel, demon, whatever).  Each story intersects and takes place in medieval England, and the action centers around a Valentine’s Day Faire. 

The first story, Love Where You Least Expect It, explores the budding relationship between Shelby and Miles.  Roland’s story, Love Lessons, delves into what a being is willing to sacrifice if it means preserving the happiness of his love.  The third story (and quite possibly my favorite), Burning Love, tells of the forbidden love between Arriane and someone whose very blood could destroy her.  When her lover asks the impossible, Arriane must decide if love is worth giving up everything she believes in.  Finally, in Endless Love, Daniel and Luce are (sort of) reunited for a Valentine’s Day to remember. 

The stories in Fallen in Love provide some insight into some of the complicated relationships in Lauren Kate’s Fallen series. I especially enjoyed the stories of Roland and Arriane. Those two tales emphasized the dark side of love, and how heartache often accompanies it.

This book also gives readers a first look at the final book in the Fallen series, Rapture. I finished reading the prologue and first chapter last night, and I cannot wait to get my hands on the rest of what is sure to be a gripping end to a fantastic series!  (Thankfully, the wait is not too terribly long.  Rapture is expected to be released on June 12th.)

Beautiful cover. I love the transition from the black dress of the previous covers to the white of the finale. I wonder what it could mean...

If you’d like more information on Lauren Kate and her amazing Fallen series, visit her website at http://laurenkatebooks.net/.

Rift cover revealed!

If you’re a fan of Andrea Cremer’s Nightshade trilogy, you probably already know that a prequel, Rift, is on its way.  I’m happy to announce that we now have a cover for what is sure to be an amazing book.  (Thanks to the folks at MTV’s Hollywood Crush for the announcement!)

According to MTV’s cover release, the story will focus on how the war between the Searchers and the Keepers began (the Witches’ War), and the heroine of the tale is a fierce girl named Ember. There will be nods to events in the Nightshade trilogy (Nightshade, Wolfsbane, and Bloodrose), so true fans will have fun connecting events (and even characters?) in Rift to the stories we already know and love.

I urge you to check out the full article at http://hollywoodcrush.mtv.com/2012/03/01/rift-cover-andrea-cremer/, as well as their exclusive peek at the first chapter (http://hollywoodcrush.mtv.com/2012/01/03/andrea-cremer-rift-first-chapter-nightshade-prequel/).  Rift is set for an August 7th release.

Timeless

This post is going to be a short one.  Why, you ask?  Well, because it’s my birthday, and I want to spend the rest of it having a Big Bang Theory marathon.  Anyway…I finished reading Timeless by Alexandra Monir earlier today.  If you follow this blog at all, you probably know that I’m not a huge fan of time travel fiction.  That hasn’t changed, but I will say that I enjoyed this story.  I also enjoyed the glimpses I received of New York City life throughout the past century.  So much has changed while so much has remained the same…

After a horrible tragedy turns Michele Windsor’s whole world upside down, she is sent to live with her wealthy, estranged grandparents in their Fifth Avenue mansion in New York City. Michele is not sure why her mother chose these people–who’ve never shown an interest in Michele or her mother–as her guardians. Michele just knows she’s not ready for this huge change in her life. Well, an even bigger change is on the horizon…

After Michele receives an mysterious key and finds an old diary, she is somehow transported from 2010 to 1910. Michele can only be seen by certain people in her travels through time…and one of them will totally capture her heart.

Philip Walker is just as enraptured by Michele as she is by him. But how can their love exist when neither belongs in the other’s time? Is there a way? And what force is allowing Michele to travel through time anyway? What family secrets will Michele uncover on her journeys, and can she find a way to stay with the love of her life? Read Timeless by Alexandra Monir to discover that real love can cross all boundaries…even time itself.

I truly enjoyed this book (and I honestly didn’t think I would). I was pleasantly surprised by how the timelines in the story connected, and I appreciated the discussion of Albert Einstein’s theories of time travel contained within the book. As I said previously, I loved the glimpses of old New York, and I also liked how history and music played into how events unfolded for Michele and Philip. (I was a music major for a while in college, and I started my career in education as a history teacher, so this was even more awesome for me.)

If you think you’d enjoy Timeless as much as I did, I invite you to check it out. You can also look forward to more of Michele’s story in the sequel, Timekeeper, due out in December 2012. To learn more about Timeless and author Alexandra Monir, visit http://www.alexandramonir.com/. You can even download some of the music featured in Timeless! Pretty cool!
