Seraphina by Rachel Hartman

In the medieval land of Goredd, humans and dragons have been living peacefully together for forty years. There is no fighting or fire-breathing and the once-famous dragon-killing knights have been banished to the hills. But then a member of the royal family is murdered in a very dragon-like fashion and there are rumors of another assassination on the anniversary of the peace treaty.

Fracture by Megan Miranda

Delaney Maxwell fell into a semi-frozen lake and was dead for eleven minutes before her best friend Dexter could save her. In those eleven minutes her life was changed forever.  She wakes up from a coma six days later with seemingly nothing wrong—but she has a strange new “ability.”  And this new ability has attracted a new friend, Troy Varga, who knows a thing or two about death. Now her parents think she could be a murderer, her doctors think she’s gone crazy, and Dexter, well, he’s finally seeing that their friendship could be something more.

Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley

During the summer before his senior year Cullen Witter experiences some major life events—his cousin overdoses, his town becomes obsessed with a bird, he hooks up with his dream girl, and most importantly his little brother Gabriel goes missing. And while Cullen is grappling with the meaning of it all and having zombie daydreams, Benton Sage is having a crisis of faith half way around the world. The two plots inch closer and closer together until they merge and then the reader is in for an intriguing surprise. It’s no wonder this book won the 2012 Printz Award.

Jennifer Strange is having a busy week. So far she has been threatened with jail, two people have tried to kill her, she has received 58 marriage proposals, she has been outlawed by the king and she has discovered that she is the Last Dragonslayer. The real problem is that she is not entirely sure the dragon should be slain and she only has a couple of days to figure it all out. Jasper Fforde has a dry sense of humor that can turn the most mundane situation on its ear. If you are a fan of Terry Prachett or Daniel Pinkwater you should give Fforde a try.

Keeping the Castle by Patrice Kindl

A funny and frothy Jane Austen satire complete with feisty heroine (Althea Crawley) on the hunt for a wealthy husband amidst dimwitted stepsisters and boring suitors (Lord Boring among them).
