These titles are sure to please:
- Inkheart, by Cornelia Funke – Many friends of mine read this story as kids, but I delved into the magical story of Meggie and her father more recently. Meggie’s father, Mo, has the unique ability to “read” characters from the pages of books (which is TOTALLY in my top ten favorite superpowers). But not all of the characters released into the real world are heroes, and a certain villain has finally found Meggie and Mo. An absolutely wonderful concept and enchanting read.
- Beauty Queens, by Libba Bray – This intriguing comedy begs the question: What happens when thirteen beauty queen contestants crash-land on an island in the middle of nowhere? Follow the girls as they struggle to survive the island, each other, and the ideals of being beautiful. (Also by Libba Bray: The Diviners)
