23 young adult books for your summer reading list THIS BOOK THO One of the absolute best I've read. I think I even liked it better than The Fault In Our Stars... I LOVE CODE NAME VERITY
"Code Name Verity" by Elizabeth Wein - In 1943, a British fighter plane crashes in Nazi-occupied France and the survivor tells a tale of friendship, war, espionage and great courage as she relates what she must do to survive while keeping secret all that she can.
23 young adult books for your summer reading list. I dislike the extremely oppressing situational plots, like a Hostage situation and some tawdry Mafia,with incongruent romances,which is what I think the cover sorta indicates, but I'm all for giving books a try

Code Name Verity, by Elizabeth Wein: Review | Toronto Star
Mother's Day 2012 present from my fabulous reading family. Cross between Harry Potter and the Chronicles of Narnia.
Summer Books, Harry, 2011 Reads, Magicians Lev, Summer Reading, Adult, Narnia, High Schools
Such a great book. The magic and wonder of a young adult fantasy, with the grit and themes of a book for grown-ups. On my summer reading list now.
When describing this book, people often call it "Harry Potter for adults." That's as misleading as it is condescending. It's more a humanist response to the Narnia series. But forget all that noise. It is a ripping yarn and is followed by "The Magician King" which is an incredible sequel.
This has been described as Harry Potter for grownups, with sex, drugs and narnia thrown in for good measure
A mix between Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and The Chronicles of Narnia- the fantastical world Grossman creates is spectacular and in turn it has become one of my favorite books.
Entertaining rip off of Harry Potter & Narnia for adults. Anyone else on this Pinterest site? Is it all that?
Just finished reading this the other night. It's a mash up between Harry Potter + Narnia + sex and drugs. It was pretty good! AND there's a sequel
Amazing book. It's Harry Potter and Narnia twisted and darkened for us adults!
Quentin Coldwater is brilliant but miserable. He's a senior in high school, and a certifiable genius, but he's still secretly obsessed with a series of fantasy novels he read as a kid, about the adventures of five children in a magical land called Fillory. Compared to that, anything in his real life just seems gray and colorless. Everything changes when Quentin finds himself unexpectedly admitted to a very secret, very exclusive college of magic in upstate New York, where he receives a thorough and rigorous education in the practice of modern sorcery. He also discovers all the other things people learn in college: friendship, love, sex, booze, and boredom. But something is still missing. Magic doesn't bring Quentin the happiness and adventure he thought it would. Then, after graduation, he and his friends make a stunning discovery: Fillory is real.

Don’t forget to scroll to the bottom of this post for a great giveaway where you can enter to win book 1 and the Advanced Reading Copy of Book 2, New Land. PERCY: THE WORLD'S WORST TUTOR Deadweather Island--the filthy, muggy, pirate-and-volcano infested home of Deadweather and Sunrise's 13-year-old hero Egg Masterson--isn't exactly known for its top-notch school system. So it's no wonder that Egg's father, Hoke, has to advertise on neighboring islands to find a tutor who will educate his three kids. Unfortunately for Egg and his siblings, the only tutor crazy (or desperate) enough to live on Deadweather is Percy--the lazy, slovenly, mean-spirited owner of 137 books he's never bothered to read. But Percy's ignorance doesn't stop him from filling his charges' heads with no end of facts, all of them spectacularly wrong: "Percy, where does wind come from?" "A hole in the sky." "Where's the hole?" (points) "Right over there." "Why can't I see it?" "Because it's sky-colored, isn't it? Blends right in. Don't ask stupid questions, child." "Why is seawater salty?" "Fish poop." "How do you multiply a fraction?" "You can't." "Why not?" "It'll break." "Do horses ever eat people?" "Constantly. Now leave me alone, boy. I'm trying to nap." Fortunately, by the time Egg's father takes the family on a mysterious errand to glamorous Sunrise Island, he's managed to read all 137 of Percy's books by himself, so he knows a few things. And that's all to the good--because someone's trying to kill Egg, and he'll need every bit of smarts he's got to figure out why. ***Please visit I Read Banned Books for the next stop on The Chronicles of Egg Blog Tour!.*** a Rafflecopter giveaway

I really like all of Rick Riordan's books. While I really like the Greek/Romman mythologies, I still like the Egyptian stories in the Kane Chronicles. I like the characters Sadie and Carter, wondering how they will stop the ensuing evil. Will they be able to save Walt from his curse? Will Ra be able to help them? What other problems will come up?

Toronto Star recommended if you liked The Hunger Games you might like The Curse Workers Triology by Holly Black
Books Worth Reading, Young Adult, Book Review, Curse Worker, Books Book, Ya Book, White Cat
White Cat by Holly Black on Bookshelf: What We're Reading. An excellent piece of dark YA fantasy. In Cassel's world, there are people who can do magic and those who can't but doing magic is both illegal and carries a price for the worker. Teens will love the honesty in this book. #books #reading #fantasy
the covers for these books are gay but don't judge them based on that. The Curse Worker's series is an excellent young adult fiction series. Check em out
'The White Cat', or; Trilogy of 'The Curse Workers'. Excellent read. Another YA book..but I recommend it. Sexy; mysterious.
White Cat by Holly Black. This series called the Curse Workers is so awesome! It's like a magical world of witches and wizards that are mobsters and con artists. SO COOL!
"White Cat": The book covers are questionable, but I still want to give Holly Black all the awards.
White Cat (Curse Workers, #1) - 3 stars Cassel comes from a shady, magical family of con artists and grifters. He doesn't fit in at home or at school, so he's used to feeling like an outsider. He's also used to feeling guilty; he killed his best friend, Lila, years ago. But when Cassel begins to have strange dreams about a white cat, and people around him are losing their memories, he starts to wonder what really happened to Lila.

White Cat by Holly Black (The Curse Workers Series) book review by FaerieWriter
White Cat (Curse Workers #1) By Holly Black **** “Pet the cat dude," says Sam. "She brought you a present. She wants you to tell her how badass she is." "You are a tiny tiny killing machine." Daneca coos. "What's she doing?" I ask. "Purring!" says Daneca. She sounds delighted. "Good kitty. Who's an amazing killing machine? That's right. You are! You are a brutal brutal tiny lion! Yes, you are.” In Cassel's world, some people can do magic and some people can't, but everyone knows it exists. But the majority of the non-magic users fear people who do magic, so magic is outlawed. Therefore, the magic users tend to band together in organized magic groups, and since magic is outlawed, these groups participate in organized crime. In other words, a magic mafia. That's right - a magic mafia! So Cassel's family are all magic practitioners and are connected to a major crime family. Cassel, though, (if I may steal a term from Harry Potter) is a squib - the only non-magic person in a magic family of con artists. His mother is in prison, his brother is interning at a law firm trying to get her out, and his other brother is an enforcer for the mafia don's heir apparent. Cassel's grandfather does the dirtiest work of all - his touch can bring death. In this world, all magic is used through the power of touch; everyone wears gloves to keep from getting "cursed." But for every magic touch the magic wielder uses, he or she get's a whiplash-type effect. So if you are a memory worker, you lose your own memories. If you can kill someone with a touch, a part of your body dies (Cassel's grandfather is missing many fingers). So magic wielding isn't all fun and games, but Cassel still feels like the black sheep in the family because he doesn't have a gift. To make matters worse, he killed his best friend. The story follows Cassel as he tries to make a normal life for himself, but is finding that hard to do with his last memory of his best friend, his confusion about why he killed her, and other major family issues. And considering the fact that his best friend is the Don's only child and Cassel's family is keeping the secret that Cassel killed her, the issues are vast and troublesome. The story has a lot of twists and turns, but it is an engaging urban fantasy mystery. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes an edgier read with a supernatural twist! I first mentioned this book in our Meg-A-Rae Very Special Magical Episode. Check it out!

Book cover: Tooth and Claw by Jo Walton
"Were she better or you sicker, then the stars would not be so terribly crossed, but it is the nature of stars to cross, and never was Shakespeare more wrong than when he had Cassius note, “The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars / But in ourselves.” Easy enough to say when you’re a Roman nobleman (or Shakespeare!), but there is no shortage of fault to be found amid our stars."
