THE BOOK OF DUST - Philip Pullman
FROM THE AUTHOR OF THE LEGENDARY GOLDEN COMPASS TRILOGY! Malcolm Polstead is the kind of boy who notices everything but is not much noticed himself. And so perhaps it was inevitable that he would become a spy.... Malcolm's parents run an inn called the Trout, on the banks of the river Thames, and all of Oxford passes through its doors. Malcolm and his daemon, Asta, routinely overhear news and gossip, and the occasional scandal, but during a winter of unceasing rain, Malcolm catches wind of something new: intrigue. He finds a secret message inquiring about a dangerous substance called Dust—and the spy it was intended for finds him. When she asks Malcolm to keep his eyes open, he sees suspicious characters everywhere: the explorer Lord Asriel, clearly on the run; enforcement agents from the Magisterium; a gyptian named Coram with warnings just for Malcolm; and a beautiful woman with an evil monkey for a daemon. All are asking about the same thing: a girl—just a baby—named Lyra. Lyra is the kind of person who draws people in like magnets. And Malcolm will brave any danger, and make shocking sacrifices, to bring her safely through the storm.

THE SINKING OF THE BISMARK: THE DEADLY HUNT - William Shirer
The German Navy was a fearsome superpower during WWII, and perhaps the crown jewel in its attack fleet was the juggernaut named Bismarck.

Not to mention over forty other mounted guns, space for multiple float planes, and an aircraft catapult; The Bismarck was a serious threat to Allied Forces on the water.

This is the gripping tale of the Royal Navy's hunt for the most powerful sea raider in history. This incredible history documents the tireless search, and unlikely defeat of this mighty ship.
