My picks for February

Fiction Book- Sword of the Rightful King by Jane Yolen

Arthur has been declared the legitimate king of England. But how will he prove this to the power hungry Morgause, who wants the throne for one of her sons? Merlinnus the magician decides he has the right way to prove that Arthur is right for the throne- by having him pull the sword of Caliburnus out of a stone. However, a lad named Gawen that nobody has met before manages to pull out Caliburnus first! Who is this mysterious Gawen, and what else could he be possibly hiding?

Nonfiction book: Teen Etiquette by Emily Post

Some things change with time- such as email and MP3 players having replaced the telegraph and the 8-track deck. But others do not- such as etiquette. And manners are more than knowing where do the fork, spoon, and knife are placed. Learn all about how to write a thank-you note, as well as how to address other persons, and much more.

Manga- Please Save My Earth by Saki Hiwatari

Alice and her young neighbor Rin have begun having strange dreams about being scientists on a lunar base. Turns out two of Alice's classmates have been having these dreams as well. So they post an ad in a sci-fi magazine regarding these bizarre sudden dreams- and there are even more people who have been experiencing them. And they are not really dreams- they are returning memories of their previous life!

Anime- Scrapped Princess

When Pacifica and her twin brother were born, it was prophesized by the religion of Mauzel that she would be the poison that destroys the world. But little Pacifica survived and was adopted by the Kasull family. Now Pacifica, her older sister Raquel, and her older brother Shannon must flee the kingdom running away from those who believe the prophecy will fulfill itself on Pacifica's 16th birthday. Many adventures will face them in this futuristic fantasy.

Website- Zelda Wiki

Imagine a Wikipedia all about The Legend of Zelda video games! Featuring information about the characters, locations, items, and even secrets. And in case you all were curious, my favorite Zelda game is Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.
