The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Potzsch - on my "to read" list
The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Potzsch is definitely a book worth reading.
The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Pötzsch. Murder mystery mixed with fascinating history!
The Hangman's Daughter by Oliver Pötzsch. Germany, 1660: When a dying boy is pulled from the river with a mark crudely tattooed on his shoulder, hangman Jakob Kuisl is called upon to investigate whether witchcraft is at play. Loved this historical fiction - it will keep your kindle firmly gripped in your hands. I love this author!

ALice Hoffman | Practical Magic (1986) | All Gillian and Sally Owens wanted was to escape from the eccentric aunts who raised them. One would do so by marrying, the other by running away. But the bonds they shared, even into adulthood, brought them back--almost as if by magic.
Practical Magic - Better than the movie
Alice Hoffman Practical Magic
I've enjoyed most of Alice Hoffman's books. I loved this one. There was something magical about it.,
One of my favorite books, but all of her books are good-according to another pinner. I need to find this.

This is my ALL time favorite book EVER! From Goodreads.com: "Jonas's world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the Community. When Jonas turns twelve, he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back."
another fantastic book i had to read in middle school. i must read this again someday too.
The Giver - I hear this is such a good story. Directed toward junior high or high school aged kids, I think.
