The Boundless by Kenneth Oppel
The Boundless

Stacie Morrell, September 1, 2014

A fun, unique adventure story for all ages. Historically based, with monsters of legend thrown in such as Sasquatch and the Muskeg. Has a bit of fun for everyone: a circus, a robbery, murder, dastardly villains, parental/child strife, avalanches, running atop a train, American Indians, etc. Oscar Wilde even gets a nod. Great family read!

Un Lun Dun by China Mieville
Un Lun Dun

Alice in Wonderland for the X, Y and Z generations, or Oz for the modern age. Fantastic wordplay and masterfully written, with images and imaginings Lewis Carroll would be proud of. Zanna and her friend Deeba are whisked away to a fantastic mirror image of London (only one of many mirror cities in existence, such as Romeless, Lost Angeles, Helsunki, No York) where items Londoners are done with end up to be used again (in very different ways) and giraffes are flesh-eating fiends. While a thick book, the pacing is brisk and lively, with great characterization, and the thrill to see what the author will imagine next. Great fun for teens on up.

What-The-Dickens: The Story of a Rogue Tooth Fairy by Gregory Maguire
What-The-Dickens: The Story of a Rogue Tooth Fairy

Stacie Morrell, January 1, 2013

Such a clever fairy tale. Bounces flawlessly from story to story (told story to 'life') keeping each story brisk and addictive. Truly charming and unique. A great read for middle readers or middle school age children especially for bedtime with parents.

The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern
The Night Circus

Stacie Morrell, January 1, 2013

A smart fairy tale of magic, love and intrigue. The book is masterfully written, with flowing prose and short chapters to keep the pace brisk and addictive. While I would have handled the ending a bit different, that by no means makes it a bad ending or poorly done, just different. A fantastic read.

We're Just Like You, Only Prettier: Confessions of a Tarnished Southern Belle by Celia Rivenbark
We're Just Like You, Only Prettier: Confessions of a Tarnished Southern Belle

Stacie Morrell, October 3, 2012

Funny, even hysterical in parts. Great read especially if you have some 'Southern in y'all.' Fun facts about SOuthern culture, and situations most of us can relate to at least once, if not more.
