Another long week at work! The kids have gotten a bit crazy as its gotten closer towards the end of the year, so these last few weeks should be pretty interesting! We have the last of our standardized testing in about a week, which means this week is all about review (yay.). This week I picked up a box of books from another blogger who was trying to get rid of some of them for super cheap. I also picked up a couple for review.

For Review:

Alice in Wonderland High by Rachel Shane
Merit Press
Sixteen-year-old Alice suppresses her need for rebellion after a petition to start a farmer’s market receives more snickers than signatures. That is until Whitney Lapin, a girl who speaks in cryptic riddles and spends her free time turning abandoned warehouses into beautiful gardens, leads her on a rabbit trail into the underground–aka secret society–of Wonderland High. Curiouser and curiouser.

Even though Whitney’s group of teenage environmental vigilantes operates on the wrong side of the law, Alice has never felt more free to be herself. Soon she stomps on her good girl image by completing a series of environmental pranks to impress them: flooding the school and disguising a pig as a baby in order to smuggle it out of a testing facility. But the group refuses to help with the farmer’s market or reveal their hidden agenda. She wants to trust them, and she especially wants to trust (or maybe kiss) Chester Katz, a boy with a killer smile, a penchant for disappearing, and a secret that will really turn Alice‘s world backwards. When one group member tries to frame Alice for all the pranks, she must figure out their secret before she ends up in front of a jury that’s screaming, “Off with her head!”

The Last Order by Angela M. Caldwell
From Author
Lana forms a secret order of women knights to fulfill her father’s final request: find the queen who was thought to be dead and return her to the throne.

Lana Crewe is a strong, fiercely driven seventeen year old living in a village ruled by fear. With their king and queen both dead, strife and division have taken hold. Ruthlessly attacked by an Order called Talons, Lana’s father is fatally stabbed. Before he dies, he imparts upon Lana a directive to save the statue of Saint Peter, and tells her that the queen yet lives. Now it is up to Lana to unravel the mystery of Saint Peter and bring an end to all of the war by finding the queen.

A medieval tale of hope and mystery, The Last Order takes upper teenage angst and spins it on its head. You’ll be gripping this book as hard as it will be gripping you.


  1. oh! I kinda forgot about In A Handful of Dust, I need to read that soon!

  3. I've seen A Handful of Dust a few times before but I never really knew what it was about but I LOVE the cover! Alice in Wonderland High sounds like such an awesome fun book and the cover is adorable!!

  4. OOoh nice! I need to read Seraphina still myself! I bought it earlier this year but it needs reading! LOL! And oooh The Name of the Star! Loved that one! Still need to read the final two though! LOL! I waited until the third one came out before reading the second which supposedly had one heck of a cliffhanger!

    Hope you enjoy all your new reads!

  5. Nice! I love getting books for cheap... but then again who doesn't? I very rarely pay full price for them because you can usually find someone selling their books.

  6. Awesome books. The last order looks great!

    I hope you enjoy :) Happy Reading!

    Here's my Weekly Wrap Up

  7. I've read the first two Monument 14 books and they were decent reads for the most part. I haven't had the chance to read the third one yet. Enjoy your books!

  8. The Monument 14 books are ones that I would like to read sometime! As well as that I have read Seraphina and rather liked it, so I hope you do as well :) Can't wait to get my hands on the sequel.
