Kira recommends "Stormdancer"

In an alternate world, Japan has become a steampunk nation reliant on a crop known as 'blood lotus', burned to fuel their amazing technologies. A young girl, Yukiko, is the daughter of a renowned hunter, who has been tasked with the impossible. Her father must find a fantastical beast, an 'arashitora', or 'storm tiger', half white tiger, half eagle. The problem is, with lotus smoke choking the earth and skies, no one has seen an arashitora for decades. With a secret gift, a powerful airship, and will or steel, the two set out to find their arashitora, and find more than they bargained for regarding the beasts, the blood lotus, and the shogunate.

Rebekah recommends "Forever Princess"

Years ago I watched both movies adaptation and fell in love with Princess Mia.  Now years later, I finally got to read all the Princess Diaries books. Although I loved the first two in the series, this one has to be one of my top favorites. Princess Mia is finally a senior in high school with so many decisions to make (where will she be attending college in the fall; who is her one true love).

I am excited to read the latest addition, "Royal Wedding."
