5th Wave absolutely stole me for a day or two. It was the kind of book you dangerously have opened up at red lights hoping it won't turn green. It is the kind of book you ask your six year old to, 'please, just one more chapter before bath time!' Mark Yancey does it up with this book. I felt utterly transported and enthralled with Cassie's journey. The writing is topnotch clever and tight. Many thanks to Yancey for the spectacular read!

After reading many of the academic dusty library scholar turned witch travel log books, I would still not consider myself an expert. Only that it is my personal quicksand of the shelves and shelves to pick through. My guilty pleasure. With a secret smile I thought this would be just another dive into the paranormal archives, but Barker smoothed that out quickly. The hike through the woods felt so easily like these Appalachian woods in my backyard. Nora took on the role of boon companion within the first paragraph. Each chapter flew. Her subtle character descriptions and magic-y parts work with the precision of being read to on a long road-trip. I didn't want to get out of the car. More to the point: I believed her. Many thanks for shaking up my usual go-to reading----this was a marvelous read! HARDCOVER ON-SALE AUG. 1, 2013

Michael and Chris agree, a really fun read even if you don't ordinarily read horror.

The Discovery of Witches will insist the question chapter and chapter again as to what these witches have come across. This is not a story for the teenager crowd for it delves deeper into the complex world of relationships and well... lots of wine lore. Diana is very much a reluctant witch, but more to the point she refuses with an obstinate historian's shrug to leave all magical business alone. Even when faced with magical texts and of course the magnetic Matthew. She rows along and she runs a tight ship. Until.... until what? The witches water along with every other spell or power reaches full on saturation within her and her community (which consists of mainly the library and the lake). This book is an undulating and unpredictable story of a witches journey filled with suspense and a powerful intellect. It has a paranormal rhythm all its own and will hold your rapt attention with humor, passion, wine and magic. -Emily

Samantha Shannon is most definitely following in the footsteps of both Suzanne Collins and JK Rowling. Far more a grown-up series, Bone Season was a unique and addictive read that promises six books to follow! This tremendous series starts with swift language, magical hair pin turns and characters that are brooding and dynamic. I devoured it in two nights....almost too soon, because I'm already wanting to read it a second time.

I love when an author really takes on a challenging lead character. The Age of Miracles did exactly that with the young girl whose world absolutely and ever so slowly shifts. The sleeping bags strewn across the floor and orange juice in hand as the news media begins to notice a small difference in the Earth's rotation. That's all really--and it sounds just that simple. But the personality and family dynamics that arise are also changing as everyone attempts to acclimate. How will life change? How much? What will be built and what will fall apart? This book held me engrossed and it still has me thinking. These seem like questions we are already asking ourselves and The Age of Miracles poses and stretches the possibilities in such a normal, subtle style that I felt my hand was being held by my younger self: curious and in awe. -Emily
