Friday the 13Th is coming.. . . . . . 
Friday the 13th unlucky day for some ,that's what they say.Incredibly, they found that in the region sampled, while consistently fewer people chose to drive their cars on Friday the 13th, the number of hospital admissions due to vehicular accidents was significantly higher than on "normal" Fridays. Their conclusion:  The risk of hospital admission as a result of a transport accident may be increased by as much as 52 percent. Staying at home is recommended." According to About.com on Urban Legends! 
Some say the Italian culture the number 13 is unlucky and Friday period is an unlucky day! I can't even began to imagine what my ancestors would think ..I was born on the 13th.  But on another subject they say the 17th is the unlucky day in Italy! Also here is also a superstition, thought by some to derive from the last supper or a Norse Myth, that having thirteen people seated at a table will result in the death of one of the diners.
Here are suggestions for you. 
and the countdown begins . . . . . . . .                     


                                      A Monster Calls

                             At seven minutes past midnight, 13 year- old
                             Conor wakes to find a monster outside his
                             window. But it isnt the monster Conor's expecting-he's been expecting the one from his nightmare, the nightmare he's had nearly every night since his mother started her treatments. The monster in his backyard is different. It's ancient ,and wild. It wants something from Conor. Something terrible and dangerous. It wants the truth !
From the final idea of award-winning author Sibbhan Dowd--whose premature death from cancer prevented her from writing it herself. Patrick Ness has spun a haunting and darkly funny novel of mischief ,loss and monsters both real and imagined.

Aleron: Book One of Strigoi Series   By Kane


                                                                     Isbn 10 : 160832382x / Isbn 13: 978-1608323821
                                                                                         Vampire Genre

  When Aleron accepts the gift of immortality from queen vampire Mynea, a blasphemy is born—to mankind and vampires alike. Having gone against the ancient creed forbidding the creation of male vampires, Mynea must hide Aleron for centuries, concealing him from the reigning vampire, Vlad, and his clan.



As Aleron adapts to his unusual limitations, astonishing new abilities, and an insatiable lust for blood—the sweetest nectar of all—he and Mynea bring others into their fold, creating a coven. But when Mynea suddenly disappears, Aleron’s blissful ever after begins to crumble. In his search for Mynea, he begins to piece together his own vampiric origins through the blood memories of others—and both trails lead to Vlad. Suddenly, Aleron’s own immortality is threatened.

Imagine a place where the dead rest on shelves like books.


Each body has a story to tell, a life seen in pictures that only Librarians can read. The dead are called Histories, and the vast realm in which they rest is the Archive. Da first brought Mackenzie Bishop here four years ago, when she was twelve years old, frightened but determined to prove herself. Now Da is dead, and Mac has grown into what he once was: a ruthless Keeper, tasked with stopping often-violent Histories from waking up and getting out. Because of her job, she lies to the people she loves, and she knows fear for what it is: a useful tool for staying alive.


Being a Keeper isn’t just dangerous—it’s a constant reminder of those Mac has lost. Da’s death was hard enough, but now that her little brother is gone too, Mac starts to wonder about the boundary between living and dying, sleeping and waking. In the Archive, the dead must never be disturbed. And yet, someone is deliberately altering Histories, erasing essential chapters. Unless Mac can piece together what remains, the Archive itself might crumble and fall.


In this haunting, richly imagined novel, Victoria Schwab reveals the thin lines between past and present, love and pain, trust and deceit, unbearable loss and hardwon redemption.
