Book of the Week: Soulless

Posted by SalesianLibrary on May 14, 2010

Title: Soulless (The Parasol Protectorate)
Author: Gail Carriger
Release Date: October 2009
Location: In Fiction under CAR

Blurb: First, she has no soul. Second, she’s a spinster whose father is both Italian and dead. Third, she was rudely attacked by a vampire, breaking all standards of social ettiquette. Where to go from there? From bad to worse apparently, for Alexia accidentally kills the vampire – and then the appalling Lord Maccon (loud, messy, gorgeous, and werewolf) is sent by Queen Victoria to investigate.
With unexpected vampires appearing and expected vampires disappearing, everyone seems to believe Alexia is responsible. Can she figure out what is actually happening to London’s high society? Will her soulless ability to negate supernatural powers prove useful or just plain embarrassing? Finally, who is the real enemy, and do they have treacle tart?

Winter is upon us

Posted by SalesianLibrary on June 10, 2009

Well, we can’t deny it any longer. Winter has arrived and the cold weather has kicked in already. I hate to see what it will be like in the middle of winter when the weather is this cold already. So to go with the wintery weather I’ve changed the layout of this blog to a wintery blue colour. I hope you guys like it.

And what else is better to do in winter than to curl up in front of the fire or under a doona with a great book & some coffee or hot chocolate? The Library just got in a whole heap of new books for you to check out and there’s plenty of great books on our shelves too. The following are just a few different books the Library has to offer.

Ever wanted to curl up inside or lounge out in the sun with a good book over the holidays, but haven’t found what you wanted to read in your personal collection? Well now you can borrow books from the library before you go on holidays!

The Library has recently changed our policy to allow borrowing over the Summer school holidays. Items will be due back in the first week of Term 1.
