The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan

We return to the adventures of Magnus Chase through the nine realms, but this time we follow a new weapon, Thor's hammer, Mj√∂lnir. We have a different look to Thor (not actually new, but new to most people), more character development, and more kick-butt action.

Gone by Michael Grant

Gone is an amazingly plotted book with many twists and turns. You will always feel like reading it and "You will see the world in a whole new way."

The Crucible by Arthur Miller

The story is dark but historic and interesting. Many people were accused of something that they did not do, and then found guilty even without any evidence. This was driven by fear of the unknown and many suffered. This represents the true nature of mankind, and it's important to know the dangers of it. The story does a good job of showing it.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling

The Half-Blood Prince, like any other Harry Potter book, keeps you on the edge of your seat. If I were to rate The Half-Blood Prince on a scale of 1 to 100, I would choose 100. I love Harry Potter and you should read it too!

Boy Erased by Garrard Conley

A memoir about a boy named Garrard's childhood and young adulthood going through gay conversion therapy. The book is a look into his and many others' experience. I love this book, but you want to bring tissues.

Powerless by Matthew Cody

At first while it may not seem interesting, as you get to know the characters it gets better. I think I would give it a 3 because even though it's a good book, there are certain parts of the story that more description is needed to fill the blank spots.

The Hidden Oracle by Rick Riordan

The beginning of the book was very fun when he explains how he fell down into a New York alleyway. It's very funny with a good hook and a very good plot. I thought that it was a good book overall.

The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau

This is the science fiction book and/or humor and/or adventure and/or everything. Definitely worth a read, there's never a harm in reading. What would you do if you were in a dying city? There is also a movie for the book.

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

It was really good and was showing how Katniss survived with a knife and a bow and arrow. The setting is in North America in the future.

Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis

Prince Caspian is a very great book in The Chronicles of Narnia. The plot of the story is great. I was amazed by how much effort and backstory was in the characters. I can't say anything else without spoiling the book.

The Strange Case of Origami Yoda by Tom Angleberger

Origami Yoda is a great book with many interesting and funny moments. From start to finish, this book is packed with both funny and semi-serious dialogue. There is plenty of plot twists and antagonist confrontations that will have you staying up all night reading. Overall I rate this book as a 4 out of 5. I would probably rate it as a 9-10 out of 10 rating.
