Perfect Chemistry By: Simone Elkeles

A cute but realistic romance. It isn't just a cliche, sappy, predictable love story where everything is stereotypical.

Rating: 4/5

The Lost Hero By: Rick Riordan

This book introduces 3 new characters, but I felt myself missing Percy. I was definitely hooked throughout this book, and couldn't put it down. It's written in 3rd person and you don't get a view of the characters personality as well as his 1st series. The narrator still knows their thoughts, but it's not as personal. Without comparing it to the 1st series, it was action packed, humorous and emotional. There were some unanswered questions- which left you waiting for the next book!

My rating: 4/5

Spy Glass By: Maria V. Synder

An action packed finale to the "Glass" trilogy, Spy Glass deals with Opal's story as she deals with the loss of her magic, the disappointment of the mother, and a new conflict brewing in Sandseed Territory.

Rating: 4/5

Scarlet Letter By: Nathaniel Hawthorne

The Scarlet Letter was a book written in the 1850's. It is about Puritan Society's faults and hypocrisy. It makes up its lack of exciting plot with in-depth symbolism and a glimpse into the demographics of the beginning for our nation.

Rating: 4/5
