Reading progress update: I've read 1 out of 245 pages.
The Secret Grave: A Hauntings Novel - Lois Ruby

Reading this one for the Free Space. Scratch that. I started In the Woods for Modern Noir, but I wasn't feeling the narrator's voice*, so I put it back on the shelf.

 

*I mean the actual book's narrator, the main character. I was reading a print version, not an audiobook.

 

I'm transfiguring Modern Noir to Grave or Graveyard, and am now using this book for that space.

Emily of New Moon by L.M. Montgomery
Emily of New Moon - L.M. Montgomery

A charming story of an orphan girl and her new home with her Aunts at New Moon farm. Similar to Anne of Green Gables.

Bram Stoker's Dracula: A Choose Your Path Book by Ryan Jacobson
Bram Stoker's Dracula (Can You Survive?) - Ryan Jacobson,Elizabeth Hurley

An entertaining variation on a favourite classic.  This is a very nicely written Choose Your Own Adventure/Path adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula novel, which closely follows (more or less) the original story.  There are many bad endings and only one successful path to the end of the novel. A fun read.

Young magicians adventure
The Magic Misfits - Lissy Marlin,Neil Patrick Harris

Carter is an orphan who lived with a bad uncle that used him to steal from people.

 

He run away and take a train ride to another beautiful small town where he met a magician and his family.

 

Now he got new friends who like magic and would help him to gain some trust back. 

 

The book is written for teenagers who like adventure and secret code. There are quite a lot of those. Also, there are in-between chapters that give beginner level magic tricks. 

 

Lovely. It is a fun read and a fun books with secret messages. 

 

Looking for them now.... And the story is about teenagers against bad guys who want to steal from people. 

 

The diversity in characters and background has sent a message that just written words. There are two gay dads with an adopted daughter, a best friend in wheelchair. Like real life, people are diverse, but they could be friends and do things together. And the difference doesn't really matter. It is no big deal. And that's the treatment in this book.

 

Highly recommended it. Especially for children and teens.

The Magic Misfits - Lissy Marlin,Neil Patrick Harris

The story is about a boy Carter who was a street magician with a bad uncle. He run away and met with new friends who are also into magic. 

 

What so good about this one is that Neil Patrick Harris has added beginner level of magic tricks into the story.

 

Also it is a very diverse in characters, including adoptive child, same sex couple as parents and teen in wheelchair. The focus is not on their diversity but as a diverse background to the story. 

 

Like that treatment a lot.
