If you were torn away from your crush, your job and your mother and sent on a trip around the world with your father and a few other people, how would you feel? Well, if you were in Girl at Sea, you would find a new love, a new sister and a bunch of mystery and adventure to explore. This book was highly amusing and perfect for when you want to curl up with a good book.
Slaughterhouse Five is a very unique book in the way that it mixes a war novel with science fiction. A man named Billy Pilgrim, who was in WWII, is abducted by aliens who are able to travel in time. This makes for an intriguing read. The tone is kind of depressed and flat, so don't expect it to be hilarious. It's thought provoking.
This book was like an autobiography by the author talking about her childhood. She talked about her life as a child in Brooklyn. She displayed herself through a young girl, Francie, who faced many hardships. She talked about how she grew and matured and became a strong young girl in the heart of cruel Brooklyn.
Eon is a really dramatic book, so I really like it. It's full of twists and turns so it's very interesting. I think that readers who like things such as Percy Jackson will really like this, because there are also dragon gods.
A companion book to "Graceling" and "Fire," "Bitterblue" strays away from action and adventure themes and instead pays more attention to Bitterblue's own personal battles and introspection as she learns more about what goes on in her own kingdom and the secrets of her past.
I have already read this once, but I didn't know how good it was until I read it again. I reccomend reading it after watching the movie. It is about a girl and boy that are thrown into an arena to fight to the death. It is compelling and a great read for readers of all ages.
This book was a thrilling conclusion to "The Larten Crepsley Saga." Darren Shan did a wonderful job leaving a terrifying and heart-wrenching conclusion to a series of an honorable and realistic vampire. I thought this book was superb.
