Infographic: A Global Look at Human Trafficking To coincide with National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, which lasts through January, UNICEF has tackled the subject with a dynamic infographic. "In 2012, there were only 4,746 trafficking convictions worldwide. This number seems even more alarming when considering that of the estimated 21 million individuals currently being trafficked, 5.5 million of them are children."

"I’m a huge dork in that I love books about books. Maybe that makes me a double-bookworm. So when I heard about The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, I had no choice but to pick it up. And then I had no choice but to fall in love with the story."

The Book Thief - Markus Zusak Great Book Club choice
The Book Thief: Markus Zusak is the 2014 Margaret A. Edwards Award for lifetime achievement in writing for young adults
The Book Thief: Markus Zusak My very favorite book this year! I listened to it on Audible and the narration was superb. Great book about WW2 for teens too.
The Book Thief - Markus Zusak - Google Books - I'm reading this now and this is definitely a book worth reading.
The extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller that is now a major motion picture, Markus Zusak's unforgettable story is about the ability of books to feed the soul. It is 1939. Nazi Germany. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still. Liesel Meminger is a foster girl living outside of Munich, who scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. #ReviewBook #TheBookThief #MarkusZusak

The Deepest Night by Shana Abe book #2 Young Adult Dragon series
It’s 1915, and sixteen-year-old Lora Jones is finishing up her first year as a charity student at Iverson, a prestigious, gothic boarding school on England’s southern coast. While she’s always felt different from everyone around her, now she finally knows why: She is a drákon, a rare, enchanted being with astonishing magical abilities.
The Deepest Night by Shana Abe Oct. 2013 My favorite fantasy book! I can't wait for the third! Amazing!
Book Review: The Deepest Night by Shana Abé “Your . . . lordiness. Whatever you are now. I don’t know the proper address for a marquess, I suppose.” “Lord Sherborne,” he supplied smoothly, coming close to the rowan. “Or simply my lord. But you can call me sweetheart.” “I don’t believe I will.” His teeth flashed in the gloom; I’d made him smile. “We’ll see.”

Unwind, Neal Shusterman - After the Second Civil War, a law was enforced to protect reproduction rights. Parents can choose to have their kids unwound, harvesting children’s organs and body parts for donors. The story is SUPER creepy, but completely addicting. Best series ever, better than hunger games

‘Brightly Woven’ by Alexandra Bracken - When young wizard Wayland brings rain to a village that’s been dry for over a decade, he’s offered anything he'd like as reward. He chooses the village elder's daughter, 16-year-old Sydelle. Clashing wills turn to affection as the pair race towards preventing war between neighbouring kingdoms that are plagued by earthquakes, snowstorms and dark forces.

Red House Books: Book Review: The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken: So so good! When Ruby woke up on her tenth birthday, something about her had changed. Something alarming enough to make her parents lock her in the garage and call the police. Something that gets her sent to Thurmond, a brutal government “rehabilitation camp.” She might have survived the mysterious disease that’s killed most of America’s children, but she and the others have emerged with something far worse: frightening abilities they cannot control.
Why Dystopia? 3 Questions for #AlexandraBracken, Author of The #DarkestMinds
Alexandra Bracken's The Darkest Minds series. Be forewarned: it's heartbreaking, hilarious, swoon-worthy and cringe-inducing all at the same time. The wait for the final book is KILLING me!
The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken: I liked it because it puts forth the idea about why people help others. There's the typical young adult love triangle along with the sacrifices characters make for one another. Ruby is the typical female protagonist with low self-esteem who sees herself as a monster. The story is suspenseful and does have humor here and there. If you like sci-fi with dystopian societies, you'll enjoy this one. Drezny
