Speak, by Laurie Halse Anderson

The book was pretty good overall. It moved slowly in the beginning and middle and everything happened towards the end. It was also very depressing and negative because it involves a girl who is very depressed and lonely. You don't understand why she is like that until later and it gets better after that.

My rating: 3/5

Wicked: Witch and Curse, by Nancy Holder and Debbie ViguiƩ

A really good book; an awesome variations of witches and warlocks. A good read--but a bit long.

My rating: 4.5/5

After, by Francine Prose

This book kept me on edge the whole time. It was really suspensful and creepy but it was a really great book.

My rating: 5/5

Alex Rider: Scorpia Rising, by Anthony Horowitz

This action-packed finale to an action-packed series was truly amazing. The plot was excellent and the people flew all over the world. It was also hilarious. Any person who likes reading should read this book!

My rating: 4/5

The White Giraffe, by Lauren St. John

The author's descriptions are absolutely breathtaking. Readers are ultimately kept up with suspense and hooked from the first page onwards. The characters' journey is absolutely amazing. Wonderful book!

My rating: 5/5

Inheritance, by Christopher Paolini

Amazing, wonderful great book! Last book of the series and best book of them all! Everything ends in this book, it is a must read. Your life will be incomplete if you don't read this book. All questions you've had for years will finally be answered!!

My rating: 5/5

Blood Music, by Greg Bear

Good book, very scientific and descriptive. The novel kept me reading and wanting to know what happened next. Not very good grammar, seems like not a bunch of editing was done.

My rating: 4/5

Bone Series, by Jeff Smith

The series starts as light-hearted and funny and gets increasingly intense and detailed. Because it's a graphic novel series, you can really get to know the characters and Smith does a wonderful job with that. If you like fantasy, you'll like this series. The story is intricate and magnificent.

My rating: 5/5

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, by Stieg Larsson

Salander is a socially awkward girl with an intense murder follow. She teams up with Blauokist to solve the Locked Island disappearance. The story is great, fast-paced, and bold. For nature readers only.

My rating: 4.5/5

Kill Me if You Can, by James Patterson

I thought that this was a thrilling read. Through the whole novel there were twists and turns, where mysteries were uncovered that you would not have seen coming; I think this made the book more of a page-turner.

My rating: 4/5

A Man without A Country, by Kurt Vannegut

Comprised of a series of insights and reflections on his past and present life, Vannegut's novel is ripe with a satirical sort of cynicism and wit and gives the reader plenty to think on and apply it to their own life.

My rating: 5/5
