The cover of the book or one of them is a floating building. I read a book about three mice that's all I can remember aside from the cover, it had the three nice and a fluffy white cat with two different coloured eyes green and blue I believe and at the beginning of the book the mice get stuck in a pet shop and have to escape before they sold to a boy who wants to feed them to his python.

I read a book as a tween late 90s. It was a series im pretty sure, it was about a chick with a barcode tattoo, a dolphin necklace, who had been GMOd as a warrior who escaped facility and then went back to save the others..
I had it as an Ebook and now I can't find it anywhere. I think it was called spelled or enchanted or curses and the cover had two hands reaching towards eachother with green fire wrapped around them. They were detectives and their boss bound then with a spell that wouldn't let them more then a few feet from eachother.

I just wish I could remember the name or at least the author so I could find it again! I think this book was called stay. I read a book in eighth grade; the book was about a young girl that was beautiful with black hair and her stepmother was jealous. This was pretty much like the modern version of Snow White. Anyways, the stepmother, when younger, had red hair and a big nose, the kids called her a witch and ugly. The stepmother gained magic from another lady down the street which made her be beautiful. The stepmother revived a bird, which scared her classmates.
Back to the main character, the girl plays in the school play and ends up falling in love with one of the cast members. However, the guy is super short and pessimistic. Together, they have to fight the stepmother who brainwashes the father of the main character. Okay i remember reading a book about 5 or 6th grade. I believe it was about three children that are in an orphanage. They are the only kids in there. The rest of the kids are sent to the person who literally puts them in holes before Eating each of them. The kids escape the orphanage and run somewhere. I have been searching for a book I read a long time ago.
It's a Christmas time romance clean. A woman loses her daughter one Christmas and the following Christmas the child is looking down from heaven wishing her mother would smile again. The mother leaves the city to get away from Christmas. Wrecks her car in a storm and is rescued by "Santa Claus" his name is Nick and he rescued her in a horse drawn sleigh. He takes her back to his place which is called the north pole. During her stay she learns that in his barn he is part of a group doing a Christmas play with some kids.
I read the book so many times I can picture many points but it got lost in a move and I cannot remember the name. Any help is great! Thank you and Merry Christmas! I am searching for a book I read in that was about a young girl looking for her father or he may have died. He was an inventor who left behind a lot of inventions that she used to find people. There was a character who would drain the blood of his enemies from their wrist in order to get them to be his mutations.
Looking for an early 70's book- autobiography. Looking for an autobiography from the early '70's. Talks about her experiences training and showing her dog. Was available through scholastic. Hi there as a 90s slacker a friend if mine told me about a comic novel he was reading about a producer making a film about the Wreck of the Deutschland. I think there was some problem with the nuns' costumes being too racy, or maybe safety issues, but I can't be sure. Happy times in Hammersmith pubs and semi derelict houses.
I'm looking for a children's book from either the 's or late 70's. It was an illustrated storybook that was accompanied with an audio cassette of a man telling the story along with sound effects. As I was only a child when I had it I can't remember much about it apart from there was a young person with a small wooden dog possibly that was on wheels and they head into a dark forest covered in snow. Sorry I know those details are very sketchy but thats all I can remember!
I do remember loving the story so much and would love to get my hands on it again after all these years to read with my own children! If anyone can help I'd be forever grateful!! Kaung4life Thirteen Days to Midnight sounds like the last book you described, good luck in finding all your books!! Kaung4life the last book you described sounds like Thirteen Days to Midnight, hope you find all your books!
The events of this urban novel focuses on the husband after his wife kills herself in front of him and his mistress. Has anyone heard of this story? Hi I've been looking for this book hoping its not a figment of my imagination because the same year I checked it out from my middle school library, I went to go back to look for it and there was no record of it. I can't remember BIG details but its a girl and her best friend who want to train to become soldiers for their town? And there also exist healing magic that everyone looks down upon. She visits a healing doctor in which she becomes somewhat interested in magic.
I believe this magic involves talking to plants. The cover of the book, the print is a girl holding a leaf to her chest. The hard copy of the book is just a brown book with the outline of a leaf in gold. I'm looking for a book that I read in Middle or High school about a girl who draws her own comics and gets bullied a lot for it so she retreats to an online RPG to meet a guy on it who helps her feel better and then later finds out he's a guy who goes to her school and is one of the most popular guys in school.
The cover is white and has a drawing of 2 girls meeting in the middle of the book at the waist and are opposite to each other horizontally.
Being(s) in Love Series by R. Cooper
One girl has long blonde hair and is an Elf and the other girl I think has brown hair. It is probably a teen novel. I am looking for a book that I read in highschool around This boy found a book or a box of some sort that allowed him to go to this like spirit world. There he learned about this prophecy that he was involved in. Come to realize it was him and his sister that were needed to defeat the evil immortal. I think the sister had this blossoming relationship with one of the knowledge immortals or something like that.
I have a hard time remembering the author, titke, and basic ploy of the book but I would really love to read the series again. I think it was like 3 or 4 books. I'd appreciate any help from the very vague description lol. I am looking for a book about these girls that live in a time where people are all broke and oppressed and like this girl and her best friend who pretended to be her sister to got to the same like boarding school and like the one girls parents had money and the friends didn't and so like they trick the school with like fake id bracelets and they like have their entire lives on like technology and the school takes it away from them and they go in to some remote place in the woods and they learn survival skills and like how to use guns but it turns out the school is really an enemy like spy training school and so they escape and like they meet some boys spend the night in a cabin that is also the enemy's and so they run away that's all I know tho so.
I need help finding a book I believe its a short series, maybe 2 or 3 books total. Its about a boy that was born and mother was killed while he was young. A man took him in and raised him. He grew up and had powers many people in the book have a particular power but most keep secret. He gets arrested and has to help a King's youngest son get landed or face execution. One of the King's advisors is also someone with powers and is trying to kill and take all other powers from those that have them. This is a fantasy series and for the life of me cant remember the name or author.
It's a harlequin romance book. Hero and heroine are in love and heroine becomes pregnant. Hero's father tries to pay her off. So heroine leaves hero and have the baby. Hero meets his son. I need help with a title and author of a book i read in the last year or so.. Female teacher possibly named Holly who is dumped before Christmas holiday break and a male teacher a widower possibly named Simon invites her to go to a cabin in Scotland with him.
It is a novel I believe it's called believers or something of the sort.
The author I believe is a native American, and the book is very complex I didn't get far enough to find the underlying plot. It's filled with underworlds and corrupt cops and murder and there's a scene where children are in hell and helping each other survive while a corrupt god tortures them.
In the scene with the kids in the beggining of the book, they escape from the back of a cop car and run for hours while they're epoxied zombies bodies fall apart. The book bounces around a timeline and different settings, making it like a puzzle. There's a scene where the cop talks about how his dad would show him a crop circle or something which led to the underworld, and another scene where they find the pieces of children sewed together in the back of a native Americans car that the cops framed or something.
It sounds fucked up but it's a great book and it's been years and I am unable to find it. I thought I'd take a shot and ask around. I don't believe it's a very famous author. And the cop had took a young girl to prom and killed her. The cop could smell a storm coming. I read this book when I was younger. It's about a woman who is in a relation ship with a singer, but they fell apart because she fell in love with another man.
Common Sense says
I know the woman had a small animal. I am pretty sure the Title had the word diva in it, but I'm not completely sure. I read a book when I was younger It's about a woman in a relationship with a singer, but they drifted apart after a while. The woman fell in love with another man, but he left her because she couldn't make up her mind at first over which man to choose in the end she chose the second man.
I know she had a little dog. I'm pretty sure the title had to word diva in it, but i'm not entirely certain. I read a book maybe years ago about an older gentleman whose wife had died and he was just existing. The wife had a beautiful garden that was just overgrown and neglected and I think a college student or grandchild - maybe - came and was trying to get him to reconnect to life.
Seems there was a flood towards the end. I might be mixing books, but would love it if someone could help me remember this book. I read a book series in the early 's called Seven. There were seven books in the series, each titled the name of the main character I believe. I cannot find a mention of this series anywhere.
The characters are all former childhood friends that share a secret and have drifted apart because of it, yet believe their ill-fortune all stems from the secret they each feel responsible for shooting a friend at a birthday party when they were 8, even though it was an accident. I can't remember what all they go through, but I do remember a few of the books plot points: One girl was an Asian adopted as a baby by a white couple and is assaulted by a friend of her parents, one boy is half-black and paralyzed in an accident, another boy whose parents run a shelter and is a sports star at the high school struggles with being gay, another girl that is a cheerleader tries to hold onto her romance with her boyfriend that went to college but he uses her instead, the other boy is trying not to outdo his brother in football, but ends up playing and stealing his brother's scholarship or maybe just gets a better one.
I would like to get this book series to hold onto for my daughter when she is in high school because it did help me and others I knew that read it get through certain traumas and hardships in school. Trying to find a book where starts of with a young lad on his way to school and on his way be picks up random objects. These were used then at school. The elastic band to keep some artwork together and the safety pin was used to help pin a girls broken dress strap.
I read it when I was at school in the 90s. I read a book about 6 years ago, it was so good. Theres this book i read about 5 years ago and i cant remember the title or anything but it was about this boy who felt like he was being watched by these strange people. He starts having these dreams of horrid scenes and his best freind whom he has a crush on later finds out they are moments in history like when he had a dream of being on a slave ship.
Later on in the story the people who watch him reveal that they along with him have live basically foreverbut in different bodies and by different names. Well thats all i can remember about it at the moment but ide like to know what its called so i can read it again. I was reading a book i was admitted in a children's hospital back in And when I was there they had a LOT of books to read. There was a particular book I keep rememb but not a lot of details of it. The book was about a kid who lived in a zoo. He never went to school, I think, and mer this kid that became his friend.
She would play games with him and stuff. She tells him about a event of this big ball of knots that no one is able to until. And he comes along to try to untie it. That's all I can remember of it. I'm hoping someone here can help me find the book again. I believe there was a story about this blind person going on a blind date with someone who was not blind, a character had two different eye colors, and another thing I remember are these two characters a guy and a girl who met in a church and there was this electric connection between them.
Anything would be helpful, thank you. I partially read this book in college, someone had suggested, but never had the chance to finish it before returning it. I forgot the title, but I think the title was a double entendre. The book is a story being told by a primate, chimpanzee or ape. The primate is discussing where we are heading as humans, a kind of warning about how we are impacting the environment. I do recall a metaphor where the primate describes a person believing they were flying a pedal powered craft, and the primate said, from the pilot's point of view they may believe they are flying even as we can observe they are falling, and until impact they may maintain their belief; something to that affect.
I wish I could remember the name of this book as I was enjoying it before I returned it. I read a short story in college as part of Southern gothic literature course. Story is from perspective of adolescent black boy who lives with his grandmother in Jim Crow south. I read a southern gothic short story in college that has always stuck in my mind except for the title. The girl has nothing but disdain for her uneducated poor family and neighbors. She wants the items to decorate her city dwelling and to impress her intellectual circle. When a dog gets hydrophobia he becomes convinced that there are only bones.
The dog becomes jealous when his mistress acquires a male admirer. I am looking for a romance book, I do not know the name or what year it was published just that I read it before Here is what I know. The heroine is from England and the hero is not English or American. She had a child with him, that he did not know about. The heroine was hit by a car while walking across the street, she is very sick, has pneumonia, but the hero thinks she is a drug addict because when DFS was called on her to check on the child, because they live in poverty the heroine, the DFS person noted a white powder on the counter top, which was actually flu powder, the heroine also had a knife because she was cutting carrots.
The hero hires a nurse to take care of the heroine also. My boyfriend read a book when he was about 15, he said it had the word game in the title. He does these things for money and the price increases with every new task he is given. Samantha - I don't know the title of the children's ghost story book you're looking for, but I do know the story about the marble knight is called Man Size in Marble, by Edith Nesbit.
The one about the artist may be Schalken the Painter, by J. Sheridan Le Fanu - the artist paints a portrait of a young woman called Rose. Sorry I couldn't be more help! I'm trying to remember the name of this horror book my brother had in the 90's, i can vaguely remember the plot and the cover and nothing else. I don't know why i'm thinking font in the title was like goosebumps but this was from what i remember it was way to dark and graphic for that series.
I am looking for a book I read a few years ago. I remember there being a unicorn somewhere. Looking for a book I read a while ago about a blind woman who was raped while in college after the ordeal she isolates her self. One day a doctor shows up at her door about a surgery that could help her regain her eyesight. She's hesitant to trust him at first but eventually does. Some of its a haze but I believe her sister was getting married and while preparing she discovers the man her sister is about to marry is the man that raped her.
Looking for novel I read years ago about a man who is on a ship, does something wrong and is penalized to sail on ship after ship through many many years sailing with some of the most famous captains of all time and I believe some pirates.. Would love to read again if I could remember what book it was!!! Looking for a book that I read in the 70s about a Native American girl. It was basically about her life but what I remember is that she had a pet rabbit that she loved and which she eventually had to sacrifice to save a sibling's life. Looking for a book that I read in the 70s.
It might have been a Scholastic book. It was about a young Native American girl and her life with her tribe. What I remember best is that she had a pet rabbit that she loved and which she eventually had to sacrifice to save the life of her sibling. American couple, baby and nanny on flight to Ireland when the plane crashes. The sole survivor is the baby, who is rescued and taken to Ireland. Story ends with the baby's brother meeting her and falling in love. American couple, baby and nanny on flight to Ireland.
Plane crashes en route to Ireland, only the baby survives. American brother meets her years later and falls in love. Small book - Christmas theme - daughter becomes sick and a male visitor appears and acts as an angel to save the child. Twin sisters from the same coven, one is really without a soul as a bad woman who was murdered by a demon centuries bf, who betrayed him, split the soul of two sisters The two fall in love and she becomes pregnant but she has a vision of what the end will be.
The bad woman who is working with another, end up dying and only one of the two sisters can survive, as there is only one soul. Also, the coven is murdered, her sister is taken to hell, where she is impregnated by the devil or another demon, who is the one working with the bad woman. The 2nd sister is glamored into not remembering she had a twin during that time. It ends with the 2nd sister and her baby dying as she gives the remaining soul to her sister. Some details may be a little mixed up. Twin sister comes home to join her coven, after a death in the family, and there are strange neighbors with powers, who murder someone, bury and glamor all evidence away.
They take an interest in her and she ends up falling in love with the main male character, who I believe is part demon or something. There is a prophecy that this demon tries to prevent, which is by killing each woman reborn, of the love of his life who betrayed him and he inturn killed her, after she cursed him. Lucifer or another demon, r working with this woman, and they entwines and split a soul between two sisters to hide the evidence of her rebirth, kill a lot of the coven and then steal and impregnate the other sister.
She becomes preganant and the bad lady tries to kill her and the only way to save herself and her sister, is to sacrifice her life and that of her child, so her sister gets the good soul. I think it somehow was entwined with the baby but some areas are vague. What is the name of book where girl is taken in by bird people and raised in a library and threatened by dragon people I know she had a friend that clung to her hair and her shoulders a lot. Please help with the name of the book?
I cant remember the title if someone could please help i would appreciate it!! This may be a short story and it's about two young boys that are twins. The "bad" twin does bad stuff and the "good" twin tries to cover it up or be helpful But in the end there is a twist and you find out it's only one boy. I read this in an English high school class in the late 80's. For some reason I think of Ten Little Indians but not sure if that's part of it.
I read a book in when I was a 6th grader about a guy who is struck by lightening and wakes up in a war. The war had Japanese or Vietnamese soldiers I forget which. I believe the story begins with him in the attic or basement of his house and looking through old war items his father had because he was a veteran. He is struck by lightening when he is riding his bike. I am not sure of anything else but I remember this book being short. I'm looking for a book I read a few years ago when I wasn't quite a young adult. I remember that it had like a pink and green cover, it was a young adult novel.
The summary of it is that there were 2 girls who were best friends but the best friend of the main character was getting "too popular" for the main character and they split ways because of that. She became a bully towards her. Then our main character went to visit her dad at work and met his new assistant and they clicked. He brought her to parties and such without the dad knowing. They had a secret relationship. But then at the end, when it was her school dance, her former best friend was trying to take away her man because she didnt deserve someone so hot.
But main character just laughed and her bf asked the former best friend to dance, knowing that former best friend was way to insecure and main character knew that he loved her for her and not because shes hot or unpopular. It was an illustrated childrens' book in the library of the small private Catholic school I attended til I was 10 and I can still remember the pictures so clearly, and have searched for almost two decades with no luck. It has several short stories and there's faint blood splatter on nearly every page. There was a story about a couple who moved into a cottage in a small town -- the husband is warned about the stone knights in the church coming to life on a certain night and he goes to see if all is well, but only notices two fingers broken off one statue.
When he returns home, his wife is dead but in her clenched hand are the stone knight's fingers. There's one about a cowboy set to be hanged but his neck stretches crazy long and he runs around terrorizing everyone with his eyes bulged out until someone shoots him dead. There's one about a painter who meets this young woman and something about a rose and he paints her portrait and at the end finds out she was actually a ghost.
And one about a homeless? They move into a castle her aunt and some cousins are in but is maybe really supposed to belong to her and her sister now I think. She meets a handsome land owner, Adrian who has a black stallion. And then in the end they find out it was the crazy aunt the whole time trying to make her think the place was haunted and to drive her away.
I am looking for a book It's about a woman who owns a civic center for her neighborhood trying to keep kids off the streets.
She teaches pole dancing classes to elderly women to. He is the leader of a rock band and is known as the dark prince. He chooses her as his mate when he is a child and now other races are hunting her to get to him. Because if they kill her they can weaken him. That is the basics of the story I remember way more than that but I can't seem to find the book anywhere now.
Can someone please help me? A short story about a Native American? After the week her brother and her are brought back home and while her brother is in bad shape after spending the week eating crickets and berries, she's healthy as ever. They ask how they did it and after she explains they don't consider it cheating since she did survive the week in the woods.
She works at a marketing firm and rarely goes home to visit her father and step mom on the farm. She gets laid off and goes home to the farm to regroup. She ends up using her skills to help her parents create a vacation spot out of the farm. Her brochure gets the attention of the high powered executive she had worked for and eventually gets her an even better position at the marketing firm.
There's this book that I've been looking for.
I remember a phrase on the front cover but not the title itself or the author. The phrase is something along the lines of "would you rather have the perfect life or the perfect love. In both lives, she looks exactly the same but her lives are very different. In one, she's really rich and has the ideal family and boyfriend. In the other, she's really poor and only lives with her mom.
Whenever she turns 18, her parents throw her a huge birthday party at her house. She's afraid that the party is going to last past midnight and experience the switch herself, which she's never done before. She's also met another guy in her other life where shes poor and starts to fall in love. She starts contemplating what life she wants to stay in and plans to kill one of her selves just to stop the cycle. I don't remember the author or the title, just a phrase on the front cover. The phrase says something along the lines of "would you rather have the perfect life or the perfect love. She switches at midnight every night while she's sleeping.
Her 2 bodies are exactly the same, but her lives in each are very different. In the first one, she's really rich, has the ideal family, and has the perfect boyfriend. In the second, she is poor and only lives with her mom. In the life where shes poor, she's also met a man that she's starting to fall in love with. One day, in her second life, she injures her ankle. She's worried that she'll wake up in her other life with an injury as well, but the injury doesn't transfer over.
She starts to contemplate what life she wants to live in and starts experimenting on her body. She starts off by cutting herself to see if the injury transfers over. She dyes her hair to see if it also changes when she switches back and forth. She ends up in a mental hospital because her mom thinks she's suicidal from all the injuries and changes and stays there for a while.
The man that she likes works there and she tells him about her switching. He doesn't believe her at first but she ends up proving it to him. A girl gets in trouble for partying. Gets in trouble with drugs. Judge sentences her to Africa to help at an orphanage. The kids get kidnapped sometimes to either be used for soldiers or sold. A favourite book of mine 35 years ago Two sisters? One is grateful for life's basics. One wants the best of everything even though it is beyond her means and she loses it all.
The poorer sister is the happier of the two. The book alternates between her perspective and the perspective of an alien living on the same planet. The alien finds her hiding in a cave, approaches her, and they tentatively eventually become mutuals. There was this one part I remember about the difference in a smile between species — humans smile by showing their teeth, which the alien viewed as threatening, and the aliens smiled by sticking out their tongues, which the girl didn't initially recognize as a smile.
Theres this book, that has a lot of short stories in it, and I remember reading it when i was in 5th grade. An example of one of the short stories was about this kid who wore shoes for a few months straight without taking them off to fend off bullies from killing a turtle. Another one of the short stories was about a boy who wanted to whiten his teath with whitneres, but in the end, his teath had liquified because he kept them on for too long.
I am looking for a book with a sub plot of a dad working extra hard to buy his son a coat he wanted, that all the cool kids had. Poor family, dad not one to show affection. Boy was all excited to wear it to school, Dad was quietly proud. Kids made fun of boy because jacket was a knockoff and he got in a fight over it, I think the coat was torn, he never wore it again, and dad never mentioned it. I've been looking for a children's book that my siblings and I enjoyed around and my brother, eight years my senior also loved..
Grouchy retired sea captain, irritated by a rainbow, captures it, rolls it up and stows it in a hatch in his little home. Neighborhood boy frees the rainbow which unfurls into the sky. Beautiful and fun water color illustrations. Sea captain sees the error of his ways! I have been looking for a book I read in the nineties written by an American journalist who lived and worked as a reporter in Africa.
Pursued by the Wardens, they are forced to leave Golden behind in a cave which they had sheltered in during Dark After, using Heart's Blood's body as a door and heater. Jakkin manumits the traitorous Erikkin, and Heart's Blood dies from a stinger shot in the neck, her body saving Jakkin and Akki. The only shelter they have during Dark After, is Heart's Blood's body, so they crawl into her birth sac. In the morning, Jakkin and Akki are reborn out of the dragon blood, and became the first real human Austarians, linked to each other and Heart's Blood's five hatchlings.
Jakkin and Akki are now able to communicate the way the dragons can, due to their "rebirth" from Heart's Blood carcass. Threatened by the sighting of a strange helicopter, the two decide, rather than fight, to try and hide by taking refuge in the labyrinth of caves inside of the mountain. In the caves, they meet dragons completely different from anything they've encountered and a strange people who think dull thoughts in dull colors and have other peculiar traditions and dragon-like habits.
After witnessing very sanguine and very disturbing rituals, in which dragons were sacrificed at the birth of every child, Jakkin and Akki escape, taking a few dragons along with them. Dragon's Heart was released on May 4, Austar IV isn't the planet it once was, and when Jakkin and Akki finally return to the dragon nursery, their homecoming arouses mixed emotions.
Together they've survived the insurmountable, and now they can weather the brutal conditions of Dark After and communicate with the dragons they love. But with this knowledge comes responsibility. What they've learned about survival could transform the planet—or, if entrusted to the wrong hands, bring about its destruction. Akki's insistence that she return to the Rokk to finish her training and begin new experiments drives a chasm between her and Jakkin.
Suddenly she finds herself in the middle of a political battle that could claim her life. Only Jakkin can save her. All four books take place on the planet Austar IV, which is the fourth planet of a seven-planet rim system in the Erato Galaxy. It was a Federation penal colony, marked KK29 on the convict map system. It is a semiarid metal-poor world with two moons. During a four-hour period in the night the two moons overlap and it becomes so cold that humans cannot remain outside without dying.
Also, it has difficult terrain and not many plants or water sources. Such harsh conditions are why Austar IV was chosen as a place to send convicts. Yolen said that there were objections to Jakkin committing the act of stealing in Dragon's Blood. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
