Reckless by Cornelia Funke

This is a fairy-tale-like adventure which Funke fans will want to read.  The story tells of Jacob Reckless who, like his father before him, escapes into the Mirrorworld.  All is well until his younger brother, Will, follows him.  Will comes under the spell of the Dark Fairy and he slowly turns to stone and then to jade.  Such a creature is called a Goyl in Mirrorworld.  A Jade Goyl wields special power which attracts the interest of unsavory characters.  The search is on for an antidote to the spell.  Fairies, dwarves, man-eating sirens and unicorns populate the exciting story.  Looks like Funke has also left the door open for a sequel.

Book CoverDeadly Little Lies by Laurie Faria Stolarz

If you like suspense, romance and lots of plot twists you might pick up Deadly Little Lies, Laurie Stolarz’s latest book in the Touch Series.  Last Fall Camelia fell for Ben, the mysterious newcomer who has the power to sense the future through touch.  Ben’s abrupt departure from town leaves Camelia brokenhearted.  While he’s away she studies this gift called psychometry and discovers she also has the power.  When Ben returns he wants nothing to do with Camelia until she becomes involved with Adam.  Then the threatening, eerie messages begin…Who could it be?


Other Great Book Trailers

On YouTube, there are tons of great book trailers for really awesome books!  Here are some of the better ones (in my opinion) that describe the books well.

The author Meg Cabot had a book trailer contest last year in honor of the last Princess Diaries book, Forever Princess, coming out.  This was the second place winner of the contest.

This was the first place winner.

And this is one that Meg Cabot said she thought was really cute.

Here are some links to other favorites of mine: This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen; and again… another really great book trailer about This Lullaby by Sarah Dessen
