From StorytellersInc:

Fire Spell by Laura Amy Schlitz

It begins with a girl in London, 1860. Her family is exceptionally wealthy and she is exceptionally lonely. The closest thing to friendship Clara has experienced was a brief encounter with the two ragged children who work with the puppeteer in the park. For her birthday she asks to see them perform in the drawing room, and her father, to her surprise, allows it.
The puppeteer, Grisini, kidnaps Clara and uses his sinister powers to imprison her body and mind in the form of a marionette to add to his theatre. His two young assistants realise what has happened, and all three children find themselves caught up in a terrible struggle for supernatural eminence between Grisini and a dying witch of extraordinary power.

Constable & Toop by Gareth P. Jones

Sam Toop lives in a funeral parlour, blessed (or cursed) with an unusual gift. While his father buries the dead, Sam is haunted by their constant demands for attention. Trouble is afoot on the ‘other side’ – there is a horrible disease that is mysteriously imprisoning ghosts into empty houses in the world of the living. And Sam is caught in the middle – will he be able to bring himself to help?

Confessions of a Murder Suspect by James Patterson & Maxine Paetro

On the night Malcolm and Maud Angel are murdered, Tandy Angel knows just three things: 1) She was the last person to see her parents alive. 2) The police have no suspects besides Tandy and her three siblings. 3) She can’t trust anyone–maybe not even herself. Having grown up under Malcolm and Maud’s intense perfectionist demands, no child comes away undamaged. Tandy decides that she will have to clear the family name, but digging deeper into her powerful parents’ affairs is a dangerous-and revealing-game. Who knows what the Angels are truly capable of?

And:

Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter

Had anyone told Alice Bell that her entire life would change course between one heartbeat and the next, she would have laughed. From blissful to tragic, innocent to ruined? Please. But that’s all it took. One heartbeat. A blink, a breath, a second, and everything she knew and loved was gone.
Her father was right. The monsters are real….
To avenge her family, Ali must learn to fight the undead. To survive, she must learn to trust the baddest of the bad boys, Cole Holland. But Cole has secrets of his own, and if Ali isn’t careful, those secrets might just prove to be more dangerous than the zombies….

What are you reading? 🙂

  4. Okay. Just don’t talk to me about Alice in Zombieland. That book seriously doesn’t want me to read it! I couldn’t get an ARC, and then I couldn’t get onto the street team, I was too late in asking for it to be sent to me, the list goes on forever! I could like write a book all about my fails about getting that book lol. But I definitely hope you enjoy it! And I don’t get why you would say “James Patterson as whoever” in big font and his “pen name” in small font. O_O I mean, just use your regular name right? I don’t get this. But enjoy lol! 😀

  5. I really enjoyed and love Alice in Zombieland – I like the ‘wonderland’ references and her twist on zombies! It was the perfect read for me 🙂
    Fire Spell sounds really creepy! It looks like a middle grade but I don’t think it is – is it? lol! I think I would have nightmares from it 😉
    Great stack, I hope you enjoy your new books!

  6. Fire Spell sounds interesting. I hadn’t heard of it until now. And of course Alice in Zombieland; I’ve heard mixed things about it. Happy reading.
