Auggie's Pick

House of Secrets



Title: House Of Secrets

Author:  Chris Columbus and Ned Vizzini
Genre: Middlegrade Fantasy/Adventure
Pages:  512
Publication Date:  February 25, 2014

Synopsis: 

The Walker kids had it all: loving parents, a big house in San Francisco, all the latest video games . . . but everything changed when their father lost his job as a result of an inexplicable transgression. Now the family is moving into Kristoff House, a mysterious place built nearly a century earlier by Denver Kristoff, a troubled writer with a penchant for the occult.

Suddenly the siblings find themselves launched on an epic journey into a mash-up world born of Kristoff’s dangerous imagination, to retrieve a dark book of untold power, uncover the Walker family’s secret history and save their parents . . . and maybe even the world.

Why It's On My List: 

I'm a fan of "creepy house" books. "The Theif of Always" by Clive Barker was an awesome one, BTW. I also recently finished a middlegrade series about a house possessed by the ghosts of a family of witches. Also, very great. So this one certainly calling my name!  The synopsis immediately sets a tone for adventure and possibly some enjoyable creepiness that'll keep me tingling with anticipation. Very excited to get my hands on this one.



Tori's Pick

Title: Lux Opposition

Author:  Jennifer L. Armentrout
Genre: YA Paranormal
Pages:  400
Publication Date: April 1, 2013

Synopsis:  August 5, 2014

Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.

She can't believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her—could destroy them all.

Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.

They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.

War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.



Why It's On My List:

I have been anxiously awaiting the release of Opposition. Katy and Daemon hae been in the back of my mind for MONTHS just waiting to spill the beans on what has finally become of such an odd coupling. Jennifer L. Armentrout... it's about time!
