From the Desk...

One of my favourite things about being a Children and Youth librarian is that every morning someone puts on my desk all the new books that have arrived at our Branch for me to look over. It’s a really great way for me to know what we have in our collection, and I’m learning about all kinds of great new books.

Considering I don’t have time to read everything, I thought I would highlight some of the books that I find on my desk that look really interesting.

Beautiful Dead by Eden Maguire (2010) - Not alive. Not dead. Somewhere in between lies the Beautiful Dead. Something strange is happening at Ellerton High. Phoenix is the fourth teenager to die within a year. His street-fight stabbing follows the deaths of Jonas, Summer, and Arizona in equally strange and sudden circumstances. Rumors of ghosts and strange happenings rip through the small community as it comes to terms with shock and loss.

This entire series looks really good.

Hmm, I haven't heard of this one before, but it sounds great! I'll add it to my TBR. Thanks for sharing!

No problem Penelope, please let me know if you like it :) I'm not sure if I'll get to it any time soon! My TBR list is too big.
