Young Adult Reading Challenge

The Eclectic Bookshelf  is hosting a young adult reading challenge.  Since I teach High School I do have to stay up to date on what my kids are reading.  I have contests going on in my room to see who can out read me in teenage books also!  So this month I read:

This is the 4th book in the Seer Series by Linda Joy Singleton.  Sabine's mother has insisted she move back home to her old friends and to be homeschooled.  She has to leave Josh, Dominic, Penny Love and Nona behind.  While she is back home, someone is out to kill her.  She met up with her old fencing club and her best friend Brianna who betrayed her in the worst way!  You can't forget the ghost of Kip, the guy whose death she predicted that caused problems in the first place.  He is now haunting her!!

 This is the 5th book in the The Seer Series.  Sabine is back with her ill grandmother and is still reeling from her fathers guilty secret of a half sister!  Sabine, wanting to know more about her half sister Jade, travels out of body by astroprojection to her sisters house.  It can't be an easy spying missing...nope she witnesses a murder!!!  
kept me curious!  Love the friends and Grandma!!  

Life in the 7th grade is wonderful especially if one of your friends is Alison, the most popular girl in school.  Alison, Aria, Hanna, Spencer and Emily are the clique that every girl wanted to belong to and looked up to all they did.  One everday slumber party changed their lives forever!!!  Alison disappears and no one knows where she is and the rest of the girls drift apart. Fast forward to 11th grade, when each girl starts receiving letters, text messages, emails from someone with the initials A.  Is Alison back????  
Great read!  The next book is on my desk ready to be read.
The Queen has died, the castle is in morning and the 10 beautiful princess cannot dance!  The king has gone to battle to leave the girls to grieve on their own. It is a very sad state in the castle until Princess Azalea finds a secret passage to a magical world where the princesses can dance the night away.  The only problem is that there is a catch and it may cost the princesses more than they are willing or able to give!!!
