Sunshine by Robin McKinley

by Alexandra Kroeger - Friday, Jul 23, 2010 at 4:38pm

All Rae Seddon, also known as Sunshine, wants is to be alone for a few hours. The Voodoo Wars have been over for years now, and there aren't any "bad spots" too near her grandmother's old cabin - it should be a perfect place for some peace and quiet away from her job at her family's cafe. But then she's captured by vampires - and when she wakes up, she's chained just feet away from one of them. Vampires in this universe aren't sexy (or sparkly) at all, yet Con the vampire and Sunshine realize that they need each other in order to survive. When Sunshine escapes, she brings Con with her; however, any chance of peace and quiet is gone. Not only are the authorities interested in her case, but the forces that chained her up with Con are still out to get them both.

Tom Jokinen's Night Table Recommendations

by McNally Robinson - Wednesday, Jul 21, 2010 at 2:46pm

I keep fat books on my bedside table for the nights I can't sleep and thin books for the nights I can, when I'm too tired for more than a page or two. In fact I fall asleep easily so the fat books never get read. They exist as pure potential or myths, the Loch Ness monsters of the books I own. I may never read them but it's important to know they're there in case I ever do, but I won't. Meanwhile the thin books never get finished because I can't remember what I read the night before and I end up starting again, every night in the same place, falling asleep after two pages. I should stick to TV. Anyway, here are my poor neglected bedside books:
