Endlessly (Paranormalcy) by Kiersten White
Endlessly (Paranormalcy)

Kacey, November 10, 2014

Since this is a trilogy, if you haven't read the first two, read no further! Spoilers! Evie's got things back under control, other than the fact that the fairy courts are fighting and the Dark Faerie Queen is conducting experiments on humans. Yup. Everything's under control... that is, until Raquel is ousted as the IPCA's director and a new woman takes over. This new director is not good news and doesn't take orders from teenagers. To make matters worse, all the paranormals are convinced Evie is going to save them, but she has no idea what they're talking about. Save them how? And from what? When will Evie ever have time to watch Easton Heights? You'll have to read to find out!

Supernaturally. Kiersten White by Kiersten White
Supernaturally. Kiersten White

Kacey, November 9, 2014

Evie finally gets to live out her Easton Heights dreams: going to high school, having a boyfriend, and NOT working for the secret government agency IPCA. As it turns out, living a normal life can be awfully boring. Easton Heights made it look so exciting! To spice up her life, Evie decides to take on some assignments from the IPCA. Follow Evie on her continued adventure as she learns more about her own past and travels deep into the fairy lands. Just as fun as the original! Definitely recommend!

Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach
Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers

Kacey, November 9, 2014

In my opinion, this is Mary Roach's best book. Since death and dead bodies are kind of taboo I had never really given much thought to corpses and what to do with them. I figured you could either be cremated, buried, or donated to science. Little did I really know! In Stiff, Mary Roach respectfully and cleverly introduces readers to a whole new world of the post mortem. I found it fascinating and often quite funny. Definitely recommend!

Sold by Patricia Mccormick
Sold

Kacey, November 9, 2014

This tiny book is incredibly powerful... and should probably only be read by mature teens and adults. Sold is colorfully told through the eyes of Lakshima, a thirteen year old Nepalese girl. Lakshima is told by her stepfather that she is going to earn money in the city to help her family, but unknown to Lakshima, he sells her into prostitution. It's sobering to realize that this happens to young girls everyday, innocent sweet girls like Lakshima. Sold is heart-wrenching and eye-opening. After reading it, you'll have a new appreciation for everything you have.

The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver
The Poisonwood Bible

Kacey, November 9, 2014

A must read for anyone wanting to do missionary work, join the Peace Corps, or do any type of humanitarian aid in another country. The Poisonwood Bible follows an authoritarian Christian priest who takes his wife and four daughters to do missionary work in the Congo. Barbara Kingsolver beautifully writes about the Congo. She richly describes the flora, the fauna, the history, the culture, the oppressive heat- I felt like I truly visited the land. I don't want to give away any of the details, you just have to read it. Don't be intimidated by the size of the book. The story sucks you in almost instantaneously and before you know it, you've turned the last page.
