Eighth Grave After Dark

by Darynda Jones

With twelve hellhounds after her, pregnant Charley Davidson takes refuge at the only place she thinks they can’t get to her: the grounds of an abandoned convent. But after months of being cooped up there, Charley is ready to pop. Both metaphorically and literally since she is now roughly the size of a beached whale.

Charley’s been forbidden to step foot off the sacred grounds. While the angry hellhounds can’t traverse the consecrated soil, they can lurk just beyond its borders. They have the entire team on edge, especially Reyes. And if Charley didn’t know better, she would swear Reyes is getting sick.

What Was That All About? : 20 Years Of Strips And Stories

by Jerry Scott and Jim Borgman

I’m a big fan of ZITS (the comic strip not the skin condition) and I’ve never read a ZITS book I didn’t like. 

This is the newest in a long line of ZITS collections. Jeremy is one of the most loveable teenagers ever. 

The antics of he and his friends and family never fail to crack me up.

Egypt's Sister

by Angela Hunt

I love historical fiction by Angela Hunt.  This one involves the real historical characters of Cleopatra, Caesar, and Mark Anthony.

Told from the perspective of Chava, a Jewish girl who is best friends with the girl who will one day become Cleopatra. Their friendship is strong and Chava believes God has ordained this friendship to last a lifetime. She finds out however, that once her friend becomes royalty, things change in ways she would never have imagined.

The Martian

By Andy Weir

Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he’s sure he’ll be the first person to die there.

After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive. 

But Mark isn’t ready to give up yet. Drawing on his ingenuity, his engineering skills — and a relentless, dogged refusal to quit — he steadfastly confronts one seemingly insurmountable obstacle after the next.

The Witches: Salem 1692

By Stacy Schiff

In 1692, at the edge of the New England wilderness, an entire village went insane.

Everyone knows the story: The pre-teen daughters of the local minister are mysteriously overcome by convulsions, their uncontrollable screaming sending the superstitious community into fear and confusion. Lacking other explanations, Satanic influence is suspected, and accusations of witchcraft soon fly. The town is pitted against itself, and by the time the hysteria fades, 19 men and women are hanged.

But what actually happened? The Witches: Salem, 1692 steps back from more than three centuries of hyperbole and supposition, giving us our most complete account yet.

Craft-A-Day

by Sarah Goldschadt

These are very simple crafts that would be great for younger kids.

Each week of the year has a theme ie: fox, whale, bunny, clouds. These are affordable, scissors and glue crafts.

Basics like gift tags, ornaments, finger puppets and garlands.
