First Page Friday The One and Only Ivan I love that from page one, third sentence in, you get a taste of the narrator’s voice. You know the rest of it is going to be just as solid. I bet I could sit down one day this weekend and devour this book. I might have to do that. Guess What! The Lone Star Reading List is out now!!
Book Review Storm Runner by JC Cervantes Zane Obispo is a pretty normal kid.except for the fact he has a birth defect of one leg shorter than the other which causes a limp. His mom works hard to provide for the family, but there are secrets she is keeping from Zane. He never knew his father. In his backyard is a New Mexico Volcano which he loves to explore. He even found a secret entrance that led inside the volcano. He witnessed a plane crash. Not something you see every day, but what made this even stranger...the pilot was NOT human! Maybe an alien? Maybe something else.
I read City of Ghosts a short while ago. The book only gets better from here! I’ve not read the sequel, Tunnel of Bones, yet. I hope to get it for Christmas. My current read is Darker Shades of Magic, which is another book by V.E. Schwab. This one is a lot of fun too! So basically I’m a big fan of her!

The Invisible Library does not have a fancy cover but it is simple and elegant and I am a sucker for any book that has the word "library" in it. So I had to pick it up! And I'm so glad I did! This is not a YA book but I loved it none-the-less. Book Review: Irene is a junior librarian for THE Library. This library exists on its own, outside all the countless alternate worlds. Irene travels to different alternates on assignment to collect certain unique copies of books..occasionally, by any means necessary. Sometimes this is an easy task, sometimes not. For this mission, she must go into an alternate that is infested by Chaos. To make matters more complicated she has been assigned an apprentice that is keeping something from her.

Trish is a 13 year old girl with a secret…a very personal secret which has already destroyed her relationship with her best friend. But she is tough and has more than friendship problems on her mind. The Euclideans are on a mission to wipe out magic. To do this they are capturing and experimenting (aka torturing) magical creatures like Nessie, Sasquatch, Jackalopes, Kirin, and more.
My students raved about this book. They are so excited that the last book in this trilogy is coming out this fall. I had to read it and see if it was worth all the hype.
This has the word “Dragon” in it so of course I had to read it! I’ve heard some people say they hated it and some loved it. I’m in the loved it camp. It is not my typical read with tons of action, but I enjoyed it none the less.
