Black Hills by Nora Roberts

Another winner by Nora Roberts. I enjoy her romance novels, especially when there is suspense, murder, and intrigue. She weaves her story around the wildlife refuge that is owned and operated by Lil. As a young girl, she built a relationship with the grandson of the neighbors. Coop was sent to spend the summer with his grandparents while his parents attempt to rekindle their marriage. By the time Lil was leaving for college, she and Coop fell in love; but because she knew what she wanted to do with her life. Coop did not want to follow his father in studying the law. He left college, joined the NY police force. Lil tried to forget her love for Coop, after all, he broke her heart.

Or did he? There is a former volunteer who worked at the refuge Lil operated, who believed he was a descendant of Crazy Horse. He believed Lil was dishonoring the Sioux by keeping tigers, cougars, and other such animals locked up. If you enjoy a book which begins with a tentative friendship that turns into love, and then intertwine it with murder and intrigue this is a must read.

The Turn of the Screw by Henry James

This tale of evil and mystery involves a governess and two orphaned young children, Miles and Flora. The narrator's voice keeps your interest. She builds the suspense that ends in a horrifying finale. It leaves you having thoughts of evil, horror, imagination, reality, and human relationship. This is not a bedtime tale.

K-On! by Kakifly

K-On by KakiflyYui has never played a musical instrument in her life, yet she decides to become the lead guitarist of her school's pop music club.

K-On is a very carefree graphic novel for people who would like a good laugh. It's about 5 girls: Ritsu, the club president and drummer; Mio, the bassist; Yui, the lead guitarist; Tsumugi, the pianist; and Azuza,the rhythm guitarist going though high school life. As normal teens, they have antics here and there, and they face problems some teens today may go through (like studying!) It's an amazing book and if you like to laugh, this is the book to read. I'm in love with this series :)

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie PerkinsAnna is not happy about leaving behind her school, friends, and crush when she is sent to boarding school in Paris...until she meets Etienne St. Clair.

So get this! I went to pick out some Abe books to read over the summer, and I got 2 Abe books. Then, I picked up Anna and the French Kiss because of curiosity...and well, I was glued! This book is just amazing! I just kept on reading and reading until I finished the book. The whole book! 372 pages. I was shocked, happy, but also sad because the book that I really enjoyed reading was done...fini (French for finished)! But anyways, I really recommend this book to people who want to feel happy and in a good mood, or just to make your day. Plus, it is quite handy with French words.

This is NOT your typical vampire book! This book is for anyone who likes vampires, pagan goddesses, immortal enemies, supernatural, elemental-based powers, and just a sprinkle of teenage drama. This series is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat.
