This book was an interesting twist on your classic spooky story and it told from the "monster's" point of view.
Jesus Land by Julia Scheeres
What a crazy book (and true story!) about a White sister and African American brother growing up in during the 70s in rural religious and deeply racist Indiana and then eventually being sent off to a messed up Christain reform camp.
Salem's Lot by Stephen KingI pick this book up because after reading The Dark Tower series I learned that a lot of the characters for that series cross over into most of Stephen King's books. I really wanted to read The Stand but it was in a box somewhere. This is a good classic vampire tale. It managed to spook me a little bit which I was surprised about.
The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak
Hands down the best book I have read in a long time. Its about a little girl growing up in Germany right as the Nazi's start to take control. It is told from "Death's" perspective. It is such a unique book!
The Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
This series was recommended to me by a student of mine. It seemed a more mild version of the Hunger Games but still entertaining none the less.
Part 2 and 3 of The Uglies series. Good but getting a little perscriptive. I still had to finish it to see what happened! The ending of The Specials was abrupt and not what I thought it was going to be.
