Twilight: The Graphic Novel, Volume 1From the inside flap of Twilight: The Graphic Novel Volume 1 by Stephenie Meyer art and adaptation by Young Kim

I'd never given much thought to how I would die---though I'd had reason enough in the last few months...

Surely it was a good way to the place of someone else, someone I loved.

When Isabella Swan moves to the gloomy town of Forks and meets the mysterious, alluring Edward Cullen, her life takes a thrilling and terrifying turn. With his porcelain skin, golden eyes, mesmerizing voice, and supernatural gifts, Edward is both irresistible and impenetrable. Up until now, he has managed to keep his true identity hidden, but Bella is determined to uncover his dark secret...

Beautifully rendered, this first installment of Twilight: The Graphic Novel is a must-have for any collector's library.

By The Time You Read This, I'll Be DeadFrom the inside flap of By the Time You Read This, I'll Be Dead by Julie Anne Peters

Daelyn Rice is broken beyond repair, and after a string of botched suicide attempts, she's determined to get her death right. She stars visiting a Web site for "completers"---

On the site, Daelyn blogs about her life, revealing a history of bullying that goes back to kindergarten. When she's not on the Web, Daelyn's at her private girls' school, where she's known as the freak who doesn't talk.

Then, a boy named Santana begins to sit with her after school while she's waiting for her parents to pick her up. Even though she's made it clear that she wants to be left alone, Santana won't give up. It's too late for Daelyn to be letting people into her life...isn't it?

National Book Award finalist Julie Anne Peters shines a light on how bullying can push young people to the very edge.

Wondrous Strange (Wondrous Strange, #1) From the back cover of Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston
Since the dawn of time, the Faerie have taken....

Seventeen-year-old actress Kelley Winslow always thought faeries were just something from childhood stories. Then she meets Sonny Flannery. He's a changeling---a mortal taken as an infant and raised among Faerie---and within short order he's turned Kelley's heart inside out and her life upside down.

For Kelley's beloved Central Park isn't just a park---it's a gateway between her ordinary city and the Faerie's dangerous, bewitching Otherworld. Now Kelley's eyes are opening not just to the Faerie that surround her, but to the heritage that waits her...a destiny both wondrous and strange.

What did you find???

(Twilight was bought at a store called National Book Store and the other two books were bought from a store called FullyBooked).

***Now go and grab your fave cup of tea or because it's Maureen Johnson's month, grab her fave: iced tea...or anything with ginger...or mint (or whatever beverage you prefer) and HAPPY readings***
