Rating: 4/5

A girl named Nore moves into the home of her new stepmother, and must find out the secret of her stepmother’s beauty.

The Odyssey By Gareth Hinds August 22, 2011

Teen Review By: Matthew J.

Rating: 5/5

This book is about Odysseus, sacker of Troy, who on his voyage home was cursed by the gods. Mutiny and misfortune plague him, delaying his journey 17 years.

What did you like/dislike about it?

I liked the well done art and the delivery of the story. I think that Homer’s epics should be shown to everyone.

Who would you recommend it to?

I would recommend it to anyone who likes a long graphic novel, around 250 pages, and who is a reasonable age (some gore).

 

Superior Saturday November 18, 2008

superiorI recently devoured the book Superior Saturday by Garth Nix. The latest in the Keys to the Kingdom series is, tragically, a cliff-hanger. I’m desperately hopeful that there won’t be a  long wait for the last book in the series, Lord Sunday.

 

The books in the Keys to the Kingdom series so far are:

  1. Mister Monday
  2. Grim Tuesday
  3. Drowned Wednesday
  4. Sir Thursday
  5. Lady Friday
  6. Superior Saturday
  7. Lord Sunday (to be published 2009)

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

I know that all you Twilight junkies will be happy to hear that we’ve added extra copies of Twilight and Breaking Dawn to our Bestseller Express collection. In other words, you’ll get your hands on the books a lot faster!

The way the Bestseller Express collection works is if you see a hot, new title on the display at the front of the Library, you can help yourself! We’ve ordered extra copies of our most popular titles, which can be borrowed for a week, and are available without placing a hold.
