A Proud Taste for Scarlet and Mi
By E.L. Konigsburg
Katarina Bishop has worn a lot of labels in her short life life. Friend. Niece. Daughter. Thief. But for the last two months she’s simply been known as the girl who ran the crew that robbed the greatest museum in the world. That’s why Kat isn’t surprised when she’s asked to steal the infamous Cleopatra Emerald so it can be returned to its rightful owners. There are only three problems. First, the gem hasn’t been seen in public in thirty years. Second, since the fall of the Egyptian empire and the suicide of Cleopatra, no one who holds the emerald keeps it for long, and in Kat’s world, history almost always repeats itself. But it’s the third problem that makes Kat’s crew the most nervous and that is simply… the emerald is cursed. Kat might be in way over her head, but she’s not going down without a fight. After all she has her best friend—the gorgeous Hale—and the rest of her crew with her as they chase the Cleopatra around the globe, dodging curses, realizing that the same tricks and cons her family has used for centuries are useless this time.

Bitterblue
By Kristin Cashore
Add this book to the list of books that don't get the fame and fanfare that they deserve! Cashore's brilliance is sadly underrepresented in the world of teen fiction as she comes out with another fantastic tale, Bitterblue. The Seven Kingdoms trilogy begins with Graceling, where the stage is set in a beautifully written world. We are introduced to the concept of Gracelings, or people who have two different colored eyes and even more interesting talents, which with they are "graced". Next released is Fire, the prequel to Graceling, in which we see a slightly different world yet with just as amazing creatures. And finally comes Bitterblue, sequel to the first book, Graceling. In Bitterblue, worlds collide in the best possible way, and in more than one sense. Bitterblue became queen of her kingdom at a quite young age, succeeding her cruel father, whose horrendous deeds have scarred her kingdom for years past his death. She is now a curious teenager who discovers how much she really doesn't know about her own kingdom. Strange and dark events occur, usually involving a mysterious Graceling boy that Bitterblue meets during her late night adventures of sneaking out of the castle. And why are her advisers trying to cover it up? This mysterious, adventurous, romantic novel, though at times dark, seriously does not get the credit it deserves. Cashore is not necessarily known for writing blissfully happy endings, but she sure does know how to tell a story.

Rapture
By Lauren Kate
The final book in Lauren Kate's series about angels riveted me to my seat: the book contains a plethora of action, adventure, romance, architecture, and history. The first book in this series, Fallen, is currently being made into a movie, so do not miss out on your chance to read this series before it becomes a big hit!

City of Lost Souls
By Cassandra Clare
The fifth book in Cassandra Clare's New York Times best-selling series excites like the previous books before it. Full of adventure, action, romance, demon hunters, vampires, and werewolves, this book appeals to lovers of fantasy and the aforementioned genres. Currently, the first book in the series is in the process of being made into a movie, so get to reading this series if you haven't yet!

Alice, I think
By Susan Juby
This was an interesting book. It was about a teenage girl named Alice who is writing a journal of what her life is like as a home-schooler, from lack of friends to lack of social skills. This is a funny book to read.
