Blood Relatives 2 by Ellen Schreiber

Raven and her vampire boyfriend, Alexander, made a plan to fool his cousin of getting the false veils. They eventually succeed but Raven finds out Alexander dated one of the groupies…plus her journal dropped that contained what she had done…even the plans. I love this book because of the suspense in it, and how it’s better than Twilight.

Witch & Wizard Book 2 by James Patterson

Again, James Patterson left me speechless and begging for more! Now, Wisty and Whit are in deeper trouble. Although, it seems like “The One” does not want people to know that Wisty is alive. On a news report, the pronounced her dead. With the “New Order” on their trail, they try to uncover their family secrets and eventually they will get their answers.

Witch & Wizard Book 1 by James Patterson

The graphic novel left me wanting more! It tells the tale of a sister and brother fighting for their rights. The New Order takes over and is capturing and executing all witches and wizards. With their parents missing, Wisty and her brother Whit must battle with “The One” who is responsible for this “Order” and is hungry for power. I couldn’t help but read the next volume of this series and loved it.

My Friend Dahmer by Charles Kachman

Friends with Boys by Faith Erin Hicks

This graphic novel shows Maggie’s first day and many more days in high school. As if high school isn’t hard enough, she has homeschooled, has three brothers, and a ghost following her around. I was very pleased after reading this book, and wanted more.

Fruits Basket Volume 21 by Natsuki Takaya

Kyo finishes telling Tohru about his involvement with her mother’s death, and why he began hating Yuki. After Tohru’s confession (finally!) Kyo runs. Akito does something almost unforgivable and amidst all the drama, two characters get together. If you thought the last volume was dramatic, this one is sure to mess with your emotions!

Children of the Sea by Daisuke Igarashi

Children of the Sea is an absolutely amazing book. It’s all about these two kids who have lived in the sea ever since they were young. The art is gorgeous, absolutely beautiful.
