Unshelved Book Club

In this week's Unshelved Book Club you'll find YA books about a boy who meets a beautiful girl, a teenager trying to figure out what happened to her mother, four sisters gifted with magical powers (who kill a vampire), a young man who can turn into a boat, a seventeen-year-old trying to take care of her sister and mother after angels cause the apocalypse, a young woman who killed her boyfriend in self-defense, Mike Dawson's childhood obsession with Freddie Mercury, a girl possessed by a demon, and a bear and a dinosaur who like to hang out.

This week, once again, some of our sponsored books are marked Giveaway -- this means you may have a chance to participate in a book giveaway. Look for the friendly yellow icon!
