Half Wild

I read Half Bad by Sally Green last April.  It was touted as the first book in an internationally loved fantasy trilogy.  That means I was either gonna be seriously disappointed or pretty darn impressed.  My verdict?  I gave it 5 stars on Goodreads, with the following review:

"A fully-fleshed Witch society within our fain society. A child labeled by his mixed parentage and punished for it. This is the book Harry Potter fans read when they want something a little grittier but just as magical."

So, yeah, I'm looking forward to the sequel, Half Wild.  It came out yesterday.  I have a hold on it.  So whoever gets it before me, please read quickly!

Insurgent: Shatter Reality

The second installment in the Divergent movie franchise debuts this weekend.  Insurgent "raises the stakes for Tris as she searches for allies and answers in the ruins of a futuristic Chicago. Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James) are now fugitives on the run, hunted by Jeanine (Kate Winslet), the leader of the power-hungry Erudite elite. Racing against time, they must find out what Tris’s family sacrificed their lives to protect, and why the Erudite leaders will do anything to stop them. Haunted by her past choices but desperate to protect the ones she loves, Tris, with Four at her side, faces one impossible challenge after another as they unlock the truth about the past and ultimately the future of their world."  If you haven't read the book yet, make sure you do!

Teen Egg Hunt?

Yep, Teen Egg Hunt.  The newly-created Teen Advisory Board told our teen librarian that the program they wanted most was a chance to search for Easter eggs without making little kids cry.  So we're hosting a Teen Egg Hunt for grades 7-12 on Tuesday, March 24, 2015 at 6:30 p.m.  We'll be outside, so bring a flashlight.  And bring a basket, too!  What?!  We're providing the eggs, people!  Even a Golden Prize Egg!  You can easily provide a light source and egg holder.

March is Women's History Month, and I have the perfect blog topic in honor of amazing women everywhere.  Women of Action is a series of biographies highlighting women of courage and conviction, both in the past and the present, to inspire the future.  Most titles feature numerous fearless females.   A couple focus on one tough lady.  I love them all!

The Virals series by Kathy Reichs and Brendan Reichs is coming to an end.  The final book is called Terminal.  So appropriate.

"Tory Brennan and the rest of the Morris Island gang are tracking a pack of rogue Virals who call themselves the Trinity. The new pack was infected by a strain of supervirus created by Tory’s nemesis and sometimes-crush, Chance Clayborne, who accidentally infected himself, too. These red-eyed Virals have openly challenged Tory’s pack for domination of Charleston, and they’ll stop at nothing to bring their rivals down—even if that means giving them up to a shadowy government agency intent on learning the secret to the Virals’ powers. Surviving it all is going to test the limits of the gang’s abilities.  Tory and the others are nearing an impossible choice—and the ultimate showdown."
