So many f you have seen the movies, but the boo is on a whole other level.
It's filled with loads of scientific data and historical facts that were barely approached in the movie.
It follows archeologists, mathematicians, lawyers, and billionaires as they tour the revoliutionary Jurassic Park. Dinosaurs had been reborn using a technique thought impossible, and they came back with a vengeance. When thing after thing goes wrong with the park, those trapped must learn to cope and survive with each other.
WARNING: There are deaths in this book. But only a few, and nothing gory.
Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan.
Kami Glass loves someone she’s never met . . . a boy she’s talked to in her head ever since she was born. She wasn’t silent about her imaginary friend during her childhood, and is thus a bit of an outsider in her sleepy English town of Sorry-in-the-Vale. Still, Kami hasn’t suffered too much from not fitting in. She has a best friend, runs the school newspaper, and is only occasionally caught talking to herself. Her life is in order, just the way she likes it, despite the voice in her head.
But all that changes when the Lynburns return.
The Lynburn family has owned the spectacular and sinister manor that overlooks Sorry-in-the-Vale for centuries. The mysterious twin sisters who abandoned their ancestral home a generation ago are back, along with their teenage sons, Jared and Ash, one of whom is eerily familiar to Kami. Kami is not one to shy away from the unknown—in fact, she’s determined to find answers for all the questions Sorry-in-the-Vale is suddenly posing. Who is responsible for the bloody deeds in the depths of the woods? What is her own mother hiding? And now that her imaginary friend has become a real boy, does she still love him? Does she hate him? Can she trust him?
Sorry, just not into scaring myself stupid.
The unspoken book looks interesting. :) Thanks for the heads up.

Wreath, by Judy Christie.
Wreath Wisteria Willis is an orphan. She's never known her father, and her mother has just died from the cancer she's had for years. Wreath is heartbroken, but she and her mother Frankie have been preparing for this. Months ago, Frankie gave Wreath a card for the foster agency, and told her to call and inform them that she will soon need a foster home. Frankie is worried that Big Fun, her abusive boyfriend, will catch up to her daughter, who has evidence for his crime.
Wreath loves her mother. She really does. But she doesn't think she can trust the foster care people, nice as they may be. After all, no one else she's ever trusted has come through. So soon after the death of her mother, Wreath runs away to Landry, Louisiana, her mother's childhood home. Here she will complete her senior year of high school, get accepted to a good college, get a job, and avoid notice. Why must she avoid notice? She's on the run from Big Fun (who certainly isn't fun), and oh yes, one other thing. She's living in a junkyard.
Wreath lives on peanut butter crackers and water bought from the Dollar Barn in town. She takes showers at the state park, and sometimes cleans herself up in the library's bathroom.
Wreath becomes successful at school, and the clothes she wears (foraged from old trailers in the junkyard) are all the rage among the popular girls. She gets a job at a store in town. Wreath slowly starts to make connections, and she indirectly brings an entire town together. Along the way, she even discovers something huge about her father. Wreath starts to open up to those around her, and they start asking questions about where she lives.
Then Wreath disappears for two days. Someone finds her in the junkyard. Now he knows her secret. Will he tell on Wreath, or will she disappear again? Or will he find something else in the junkyard?
Unwind by Neal Shusterman. Along with Unwholly. Best series.
