I shall wear midnight

The Bad Queen




By: Carolyn Meyer
Location: FIC MEY
Genre: Historical Fiction





More of my favourite genre, historical fiction this time set in France. Who was Marie-Antionette- was she as bad as I have ben made to think, did she deserve her beheading on the streets of Paris.


History paints her as a shallow party girl, a spoiled fashionista, a callous ruler. Perhaps no other royal has been so maligned--and so misunderstood--as Marie-Antoinette. In this latest installment of her acclaimed Young Royals series, Carolyn Meyer reveals the dizzying rise and horrific downfall of the last Queen of France.

From the moment she was betrothed to the dauphin of France at age fourteen, perfection was demanded of Marie-Antoinette. She tried to please everyone--courtiers, her young husband, the king, the French people--but often fell short of their expectations. Desperate for affection and subjected to constant scrutiny, this spirited young woman can't help but want to let loose with elaborate parties, scandalous fashions, and other unimaginable luxuries. But as Marie-Antoinette's lifestyle gets ever more recklessly extravagant, the peasants of France are suffering from increasing poverty--and becoming outraged. They want to make the queen pay.

The Bad Queen is a fresh look at an endlessly fascinating life.

MIDWINTERBLOOD




By: Marcus Sedgwick
Location: Fic Sed
Genre: Everything- Love, Vampires, Sci Fi and Fantasy



What would you sacrifice for someone you've loved forever?



"I will live seven times and I will look for you and love you in each life. Will you follow?

Have you ever had the feeling that you've lived another life? Been somewhere that has felt totally familiar even when you've never been there before, or felt that you've known someone even though you are meeting them for the first time? In a novel comprising seven parts each of them influenced by a moon - flower moon, harvest moon, hunter's moon, blood moon - and travelling from 2073 back in time to the dark of the moon and the days of Viking saga, this is the story of Eric and Merle who have loved and lost one another and who have been searching for each other ever since. In the different stories the two appear as lovers, mother and son, brother and sister, artist and child as they come close to finding each other before facing the ultimate sacrifice. Beautifully imagined, intricately and cleverly structured this is a heart-wrenching and breathtaking love story, but it also has the hallmark Sedgwick gothic touch with plenty of blood-spilling, a vampire and sacrifice.

Stay With Me



By: Paul Griffin

Location: FIC GRI

Genre: Youth Fiction- Drama



The door opens, and this guy comes in, kind of tall, clean cut, definitely nice-looking, but there's something wrong with him. he strikes me as both wounded and perhaps a little dangerous...

And so it began...


The latest Listener magazine rates this book really highly as its number one youth fiction for 2011- so it must be good.This story is about hope, and first love and it will apparently change the way you think about the world- sounds like a challenge to me!!
