Jr-Sr High Book of the Month: Cinder by Marissa Meyer




Cinder, a gifted mechanic, is a cyborg. She’s a second-class citizen with a mysterious past, reviled by her stepmother and blamed for her stepsister’s illness. But when her life becomes intertwined with the handsome Prince Kai’s, she suddenly finds herself at the center of an intergalactic struggle, and a forbidden attraction. Caught between duty and freedom, loyalty and betrayal, she must uncover secrets about her past in order to protect her world’s future.

My favorite time to read is…….anytime. My challenge is finding uninterrupted blocks of time, which is pretty rare most days. I’m known to tote two or three books around, no matter where my travels take me. Over the holiday break, this title traveled a few miles. It is not one that fits into my favorite genre, but I do enjoy a good story and this one fit that requirement. It pulls loosely from the fairy tale of Cinderella, with a few parts Magna novel intertwined, which results in a storyline strong enough to keep me hooked. I encourage readers to venture outside their favorite genres from time to time, because it is easy to get used to reading the same kinds of novels. This one is sure to entertain both male and female readers as there’s enough edge, unpredictability and mystery to captivate readers. Even better, this continues into a series so readers who like the Lunar Chronicles will be able to continue with additional twists and turns.

Elementary Book of the Month: Little Snowman Stan by Guido van Genechten.

Stan the little snowman wants desperately to move—he longs to leave his dull surroundings and explore the world. He has been standing in the same place and position since the beginning of winter, surrounded by other frozen snowmen. When a little bird lands on his carrot nose, Stan asks it what it feels like to move freely, but Mr. Hat the snowman shouts at Stan to be still. “If you move, you'll melt!” shouts the rigid snow soldier with the silly bucket hat. Too late, because Stan hops on his bicycle, rides over snowy hill and valley, and never looks back. He discovers Freezeland, where it is so cold, the sun can never melt the snow people, and they are free to dance about in every direction. Through lovely illustrations, this engaging winter story opens a world of possibilities to children, encouraging them to reach beyond their boundaries, follow their instincts, and always be true to themselves.
