Zombies vs. Unicorns By: Holly Black

This is a book that lets you answer the age the age old question Zombie or Unicorns which one is better. Please put an end to this dispute. Zombies shamble and Unicorns are mystical creatures with horns in their head. I would recommend this book because it is Hilarious.

A Hat Full of Sky By:Terry Pratchett

Tiffany Aching is back in the sequal of "The Wee Free Men". It's Tiffany's time to learn witching from a new witch, but her new teacher is quite odd. Something or someone is looking for Tiffany. This is a funny and adventurous book!

The Birds

The Birds is a short horror story about the birds taking over the world and killing all humans. It takes place in England. I would definitely recommend this book!

There's a girl in this novel that goes to an extremely fancy all girls school where everyone is obsessed with prom. Lizzie the main character goes to this school on a music scholarship. Lizzie is a little bit of an outcast, except for her best friend Jane.

Wintersmith By: Terry Pratchett

Tiffany Aching has a new teacher in the new addition to the "Wee free Men" series. She may be even weirder than her last. But now that the spirit of winter is following her it makes everything tough. This would have to be my favorite book in the series. I love it!
