Splintered
Young Adult

Alyssa is the descendant of Alice from Lewis Carroll’s novels. Her family has been cursed with madness, for not only is Alyssa’s mother in an insane asylum, Alyssa also keeps the secret that she hears the thoughts of plants and insects. When her mother steadily grows worse, she is signed up for treatments that might kill her. Alyssa is willing to do anything to save her mother, even if it includes visiting Wonderland to break the curse with the two boys she holds most dear. If you are a fan of romance then definitely give this book a read.

Monument 14: Sky on Fire
Young Adult

This is the second book in Laybourne’s survival trilogy, picking up right after the first installment ended with half of the group setting off in their school bus to try to get to the Denver airport. They hope to get medical attention for one of their own and find a rescue party for their friends back in Monument. Chapters alternate between brothers Alex, who left on the bus, and Dean, who remained behind in the shopping center. Both groups have new problems to overcome while dealing with the effects the poisoned air causes to everybody depending on their blood types.

Scarlet
Young Adult

In the second installment of Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles, Scarlet’s grandmother goes missing. While searching for her, Scarlet discovers that her grandmother (a former military pilot) was leading a double life. She meets and is accompanied by a dangerous man known as Wolf as she hurries to locate her grandmother. Meanwhile, Cinder has been imprisoned, but she escapes with the infamous Captain Carswell Thorne. Cinder’s and Scarlet’s paths eventually cross as Cinder tries to save the earth by preventing the marriage of Queen Levana to Emperor Kai. A great adventure read blending politics and a little bit of romance with sci-fi/fantasy.
