Fairest by: Marissa Meyer

If you’ve read the rest of the Lunar Chronicles series(Cinder, Scarlet, Cress), you’d probably know who Queen Levana is, what she can do, and how she can do it. You know her as ruthless, evil, and merciless, but this book gives you a different perspective, and it shows you why she, in fact, acts that way.

It also shows where Winter came from, and how Princess Selene “died”. It also shows why Levana “looks” the way she does. And by looks, I mean why she changed her form to that particular face. It shows what a jerk Channary can be, and how those awful subjects of hers ignored her at her own birthday party! Oops, shouldn’t of said that. oh, well, just read Fairest! Thank you, Marissa Meyer, for making such a wonderful series I could’t drag myself away from!

The Misadventures of Edgar and Allan Poe: The Tell-Tale Start by: Gordon McAlpine

“Look, when it comes to twins there are three kinds: fraternal, identical, and . . . you.”- quote from book

Edgar and Allan are twins, as you might of already guessed. They live with their aunt and uncle, hang out with their cat, Roderick Usher, and pretty much live the good life. Like the average school boy, they once slept in class, get in trouble with teachers, and pull a lot of fiendish, legendary pranks. But unlike the average school boy, they are smarter than the teachers, read each other’s minds, and they receive assistance from a dead ancestor, Mr. Edgar Allan Poe himself!

And someone killed their parents. And that someone is also out to get them…..

Follow the Poe twins as they scare the pee out of some bullies, travel across the country, and prevent a murder of… one of them! And why does that license plate spell out,”DNGR4U2″?
