These are the childrens' and young adults' books I've read recently on that reading journey... Fun reads for a Saturday morning while rain drips outside.
Inkdeath by Cornelia Funke: I'd been waiting to get this in paperback for a while. I love the series, just not quite enough to shell out for a hardback. And this was a very fitting conclusion--best yet in my estimation.
My Sparkling Misfortune by Laura Lond: With an evil anti-hero narrating his fall from wickedness, this one's great fun and told in a really enjoyable voice.
The Unwanted by Daniel Carter: Genetic engineering, faith, superheroes and the FBI combine delightfully. Looking forward to more in this series.
The Royal Dragoneers by M.R. Mattias: A well-crafted world with rich detail and vivid descriptions, interesting characters and an enjoyable storyline.
Dawn of the Shadow by Peter Kelly: Young adults trying to make their way in the modern world are suddenly faced with a very different history than the one they've learned.
