This book was reviewed on the Friday book page for Unshelved and it looked intriguing. Starting it, I was reminded a lot of the Starcrossed series by Elizabeth Bunce. Celaena was the top assassin before she was betrayed and sent to a prison camp to die. She's been given a chance to gain her freedom, a competition to become the King's Champion, if she survives and wins. But Celaena doesn't know who she can trust, not only with her friendship and life, but also her heart.

This was set in 1914 London, and Jack the Ripper isn't that distant of a memory. A new killer is stalking the streets, but his victims are all "rent boys", making this crime not necessarily the highest on the police list. But due to outside influences, the case is assigned to Detective Inspector Quinn, who's motives might not be the cleanest.

I'd actually picked this up for my teenager to read and ended up reading it myself.

The townspeople want to buy the land to tear down the boneyard, but Michael isn't sure he wants to sell.

I became a fan of the Babymouse books because of Samantha. She always enjoys them, and I have to read them myself before bringing them back to the library. The artwork and storylines are always adorable and funny.
Sammi had picked out this book and I thought it looked interesting enough to give it a read. Morley Manor is about to be torn down and Anthony and his sister Sarah decide to go to the estate sale to see if they can find anything cool to buy. Anthony finds a cool engraved box with 5 little monster figurines in it. But it turns out that monsters aren't fake.
