Summer Book Ideas!!

I am reading this really good book series called the Mortal Instruments. It is about this girl named Clary who discovers she is a Shadowhunter. A Shadowhunter is a person that protects the world from evil spirits from the underworld. Cooool!!! Clary’s mom has kept this long lost secret. Joclyn (Clary’s Mom), married the most wanted Shadowhunter ever to walk the face of the Earth!! His name is Valentine. Valentine is out to destroy all Shadowhunters and create a new era of stronger Shadowhunters. Clary discovers her natural powers and helps to destroy Valentine for good.


NEWS FLASH!!!   There will be a movie based on this first book in the series expected to release April, 2013!

Mom, Dad, where do books come from?

Books still come from book sellers and a big part of a librarian’s job is ordering books and other materials for the library. With so many books, movies, music cds, video games and magazines (yes, we have them all) out there, how do we librarians choose which ones? Looking at review magazines like School Library Journal, Booklist and others helps. Keeping up with what new books popular authors are coming up with is another ways librarians choose titles. Of course we want the collection of stuff at the library to be the stuff you want to read, look at and play with, so… The next time you think, “Gee, I wish the library had… ” let us know. We may not be able to get everything you’d like us to get, but we definitely want to hear from you. Remember though, “sharing is caring.” Use your library card to check out the stuff you’d like to bring home, and then bring it back. :)

Laugh Out Loud!

In these two action packed adventure books, you will have the time of you life with the twins Coke and Pepsi (also called Pep) McDonald.  If you love crazy, funny, and dangerous books- here’s your ticket to heaven.  If you like codes or spy stuff you will also love this book.  These books got me hooked the second I started.    If you absolutely hate codes, ciphers, danger, crazy, or funny, these books are most definitely not for you.  I think you would be more comfortable with a dictionary if you don’t like even one of these things. 

A dragon finger?!!

In Ranger’s Apprentice the main character,Will, is an orphan.  He lives in the area surrounding the Castle Arulian.  On Choosing Day, a day that is special to the orphans only, the masters of each ‘job’ in the castle, such as ranger, horse master/trainer, Battle school, blacksmith, etc., come out and choose an orphan for their  apprentice.  Will is the smallest of the orphans, but he still wants to be in battle school, where all of the knights are trained.  The reason for this is that, when he appeared on the doorstep of the castle, there was a note.  The note said that his mother had died when he was born and his father had died a heroic death.  Will wanted to follow his father’s footsteps and become a knight because, to him, it was obvious that that was what his father was.  But he was slim, short, and quick on his feet.  These were the opposite of what you had to have to go to battle school.  When he is refused a chance to go to battle school, another master takes interest in him, one that was shrouded in mystery…
