Some of The Nicest Book Covers I’ve Found, Part Five


****May not mean that the book was good though****

Pulse by Patrick Carman. In the year 2051, when most Americans live in one of two gigantic, modern States, Faith Daniels, part of a dwindling group that lives between, learns that she, like other misfits, has unusual abilities that could help when the inevitable war begins.

The Haven by Carol Lynch Williams

Young adult/adult fairy tale: I found this fun little surprise of a book a few years before the Coraline movie came out. Similar idea - a young unhappy boy finds a strange land in a secret room that SEEMS so much better than his real life. Very dark. . . probably more for adults, but can be read by mature children who like scary stories. I would love to see this as a movie!

Wistful, witty, and wiseand creepy. . . . Closer in tone to American Gods than to Coraline , but permeated with Bods innocence, this needs to be read by anyone who is or has ever been a child. Kirkus

Unnatural Creatures is a collection of short stories about the fantastical things that exist only in our minds—collected and introduced by Neil Gaiman.   The sixteen stories range from the whimsical to the terrifying. The magical creatures range from werewolves to sunbirds to beings never before classified. E. Nesbit, Diana Wynne Jones, Gahan Wilson, and other literary luminaries contribute to the anthology.

When I first read this book I thought, wow! I would one day read this to my kid.  And I will, I just need to wait a bit.  He's only 6 months old.

These fairy tale retellings for adults are worth a read! Including the Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman.

The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen Set in Medieval Europe, Johansen's fantasy book features a truly strong and willful female protagonist.

Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

Just reading this now... a bit difficult to get into, but once you're into it, hard to put down!

Best read of 2014 for me!  Prince Yarvi only has one good hand, making him less than a man in the eyes of his society. But he still vows to avenge his dead father, with the help of a band of outcasts.

I have this and must say the stories are quite wonderful and teach much more about morals than most of the muggle stories. The Tale of the Three Brothers will always be my favorite, followed by Babbity Rabbity and the Cackling Stump :)
