Title: The Help
Author: Kathryn Stockett

Title: Magic Kingdom For Sale – SOLD!
Author: Terry Brooks
Ben Holiday is a lawyer who pretty much hates his work and wishes for a simpler life when he discovers a magic kingdom called Landover. The kingdom is similar to Earth, with powerful factions opposing each other, massive pollution and a population of citizens who have no faith in their leaders. It’s up to Ben to gain his right to the throne and put an end to Landover’s many problems.


Title: Pride And Prejudice And Zombies
Author: Jane Austen
If you’re interested in taking a closer – and different – look at Jane Austen’s classic novel Pride And Prejudice, be sure to pick up a copy of this book. In it zombies, of all things, have overrun England for about 50 years and are therefore able to answer some puzzling questions about the original story: why were troops stationed near Hertfordshire? Why did Charlotte Lucas marry Mr. Collins?


Title: The Book Thief
Author: Markus Zusak
The narrator in this novel is a strange one – Death. The story takes place during World War II and focuses on Liesel Meminger from the time she’s taken, at age 9, to live in Germany with a foster family. After she steals her first book – The Gravediggers Handbook – and her foster dad uses it to lull her to sleep, Liesel suffers from nightmares about her younger brother’s death. The story follows Liesel through several decades as she collects more stolen books and a new set of friends.


Title: Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows
Author: J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter fans have already read this by now, but if you’re still working your way through the famed series by J.K. Rowling you certainly have a treat to look forward to in Book 7. In this conclusion to his story, Harry Potter faces some of the darkest and most dangerous lessons in magic and mystery, honor and contempt, love and loss and right and wrong to date. We don’t want to give anything away so we’ll leave you with just one warning – bring plenty of tissues.


Title: L.A. Candy
Author: Lauren Conrad

Candy, which centers on the sweet life in Los Angeles, California: hot clubs, cute guys and designer … well, everything.

There Percy learns that his real dad is Poseidon, God of the Sea, and gets caught up in adventures that may be more than a mere mortal can handle.


Title: Fahrenheit 451
Author: Ray Bradbury
This classic tales gives a frightening image of a future where firemen don’t put out fires – they start them in order to burn books.
