Title: Thirteen Reasons Why
Author: Jay Asher
Publisher: Penguin
Publication Date: 2013

Synopsis from Goodreads

You can’t stop the future.
You can’t rewind the past.
The only way to learn the secret is to press play.

Clay Jensen returns home to find a strange package with his name on it. Inside he discovers several cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker – his classmate and first love – who committed suicide two weeks earlier.

Hannah’s voice explains there are thirteen reasons why she killed herself. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he’ll find out why.

All through the night, Clay keeps listening – and what he discovers changes his life… forever.

I talk a lot about how reading for pleasure can make you more empathetic as a person as well as helping deal with personal issues you may have. This book and the reader reaction trailer are perfect examples of how reading for pleasure can change things for the better ♥

Publisher: Entangled Teen
Publication Date: 1 Dec 2015


Experience the epic love story of OBSIDIAN as told by its hero, Daemon Black…

I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it.

And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are.

But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can’t stop myself from wanting her—or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy—the Arum, and I need to stay on my game.

Falling for Katy—a human—won’t just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen…

When Lea Sutter visits the Caribbean island of Chat Noir and witnesses a devastating earthquake, she is moved to adopt two beautiful, blue-eyed orphan twins, Daniel and Samuel, and take them home to America. But Lea’s own children sense something strange and wrong about the boys and their innocent, oddly old-fashioned ways – and soon after they arrive, a terrible accident takes place on their doorstep.

As more grisly and suspicious events take place, the boys’ true origins – and their evil intentions – become terrifyingly clear.

Title: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Zombies
Author: Matt Mogk
Publisher: Gallery Books
Publication Date: Sept 2011

Synopsis from Goodreads


In one indispensable volume, Matt Mogk, founder and head of the Zombie Research Society, busts popular myths and answers all your raging questions about the living dead.*

Q. How can I increase my chances of survival?
A. One simple step is to keep away from other people. Without people there can be no zombies.

Q. What is the connection between the Voodoo zombie and the flesh-eating zombie of popular culture?
A. Other than a shared name, absolutely nothing.

Q. Will zombies actually eat me, or will they just bite and chew?
A. Research suggests the neuromuscular activity required for swallowing may be too complex for a zombie.

Q. Will we see any warning signs before the dead rise?
A. Unfortunately, entire populations could be infected with the zombie sickness before anyone even knows there’s a problem.

Q. How come Zombie Awareness Month is in May and not October?
A. Unlike witches and vampires, zombies are not otherworldly creatures. They are made of flesh and blood. Don’t forget to wear your gray ribbon.

* Many more questions about zombies—including why not all of them are undead—are answered inside the book.

I love this so much, I think it would be an excellent addition to the school library and I have added it to my Zombie YouTube Playlist.

Just the thing on the lead up to Halloween :)
