The Nest by Kenneth Oppel

Very creepy yet interesting book.  It has a very vague theme but it's creepy.  Creepy!  CREEPY!  CREEPY!

A Pocket Full of Murder by R. J. Anderson

This book is very compelling and interesting, not to mention funny from time to time!  I'm only on the 14th chapter, and I'm really interested!  Can't stop reading it!  I highly recommend this book!

The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald

It was a good book.

Exit, Pursued by a Bear by E. K. Johnston

Cheer camp is going to be great this year for Hermione.  But when she wakes up the morning after the end-of-camp party, everything has changed.  Now, armed with her cheer squad, parents, and best friend Polly, Hermione must negotiate her way through her senior year in addition to the aftermath of cheer camp.  You'll laugh, cry, and feel it all along with Hermione as she grows, struggles, and ultimately triumphs.  This was a very good book that I would definitely recommend.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J. K. Rowling

I really liked it; I read it already but I really like it.  J. K. Rowling is one of my favorite authors.  I like it because J. K. Rowling makes the book very eventful and descriptive, but not so much that it is overwhelming, though.

Frankenstein by Mary Shelley

A more challenging read but extremely insightful into the mind of Victor Frankenstein, a selfish man who wishes to become "greater than his nature will allow."  This book has hints of horror and sadness, and lets the reader anticipate the upcoming chapters eagerly.
