This whole list started out hand written. I called it the Book of Books. Now it is the Blog of Books. I hope you can come here and discover a whole new wonderful world to run away to.

 

Synopsis: A broken-down camper hidden deep in a national forest is the only home fifteen year-old Carey can remember. The trees keep guard over her threadbare existence, with the one bright spot being Carey’s younger sister, Jenessa, who depends on Carey for her very survival. All they have is each other, as their mentally ill mother comes and goes with greater frequency. Until that one fateful day their mother disappears for good, and two strangers arrive. Suddenly, the girls are taken from the woods and thrust into a bright and perplexing new world of high school, clothes and boys.
Now, Carey must face the truth of why her mother abducted her ten years ago, while haunted by a past that won’t let her go… a dark past that hides many a secret, including the reason Jenessa hasn’t spoken a word in over a year. Carey knows she must keep her sister close, and her secrets even closer, or risk watching her new life come crashing down.

The Return of King Arthur by Stephen R. Lawhead

The hour fortold has come at last! Edward the Ninth, reprobate King of England, is dead and a proud an venerable institution is to be buried with him. A new political order—encouraged by an ambitious Prime Minister and supported by a public wearied by a succession of royal scandals—is about to render the old obsolete. With signed abdications of all potential throne claimants already in P.M. Thomas Waring’s hands, it is a near-certainty that the British monarchy will not survive the twenty-first century.
But in the Scottish Highlands, a young man makes a remarkable discovery that will change the seemingly unaltered path of his beleaguered nation. For Captain James Arthur Stuart is not the commoner he has always believed himself to be, but rather the scion of an obscure branch of the royal family, raised in ignorance of his true station. Even more astonishing, the monarch-to-be does not merely share the name of the legendary King of Summer—he is, in fact, King Arthur reborn!

Holy shit I still have followers…..

Dear EVERYONE… God I am so sorry. I haven’t posted in 6 months.. A lot happened and I stopped reading.. I stopped looking at my books.. My shelf is covered in dust.. I’m so sorry. I haven’t been me lately.I got pretty down and I’m still there but trying to come back. I haven’t done much of anything I love because of some messes that have happened. For example I had surgery. I had bone replaced and then it got rejected and I had a second surgery. We are in the ‘waiting to see if I accept this bone’ phase. No fun. I was cheated on by my husband of the past 3 years.. also no fun. There was a death in my family. Again NO FUN. I was drug to Nebraska. I went to El Paso and almost refused to come home.. I know its all shit and I am sure there are people (1001101010% sure) that are suffering more than I am right now and I shouldn’t complain.. So I’ll stop there.

Anyway, I will blog more.. I have so many books that I just know so many of you will love. I can’t promise to post 20 a day or anything but I can promise to try get on as much as I can. 

And seriously thank you. THANK YOU for still being here.

How will an anorexic seventeen-year-old girl from the suburbs fare as one of the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse?      Traveling the world on her steed gives Lisa freedom from her troubles at home—her constant battle with hunger, and her struggle to hide it from the people who care about her.

Can Lisa find a way to harness that power—and the courage to fight her own inner demons?      A wildly original approach to the issue of eating disorders, Hunger is about the struggle to find balance in a world of extremes, and uses fantastic tropes to explore a difficult topic that touches the lives of many teens.

He should have chosen jail.

Synopsis: She is beautiful, she is a princess, and Aphrodite is her favorite goddess, but something in Helen of Sparta just itches for more out of life. Not one to count on the gods—or her looks—to take care of her, Helen sets out to get what she wants with steely determination and a sassy attitude. That same attitude makes Helen a few enemies—such as the self-proclaimed “son of Zeus” Theseus—but it also intrigues, charms, and amuses those who become her friends, from the famed huntress Atalanta to the young priestess who is the Oracle of Delphi.

In Nobody’s Princess, author Esther Friesner deftly weaves together history and myth as she takes a new look at the girl who will become Helen of Troy. The resulting story offers up adventure, humor, and a fresh and engaging heroine you cannot help but root for.
