I would rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. I really enjoyed reading it; the plot was engaging and kept me on the edge of my seat, wanting to know what would happen next. The story is about a girl who can tell truth from lie with a magical power called truthwitchery. Her best friend, a threadwitch, can see (almost) everyone's "threads," which show their emotions. The two girls cross paths with the third main character, a windwitch prince. Although his witchery allows him to control the wind, he is rather weak and does not possess as much power as some windwitches. As their fates intertwine, each character displays distinct and well-crafted personalities. This book was truely hard to put down, and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an easy to read, yet engaging, book. One of my favorite parts of the book was how the author managed to switch focus to and from each of the main characters, while consistently keeping the book in the third person throughout. This was a very interesting choice that the author made, which I highly enjoyed. The author was able to execute this technique in a way that enhanced the story, which to me proves how well-written this book was. Overall, it was a great story, and I couldn't wait to get my hand on the sequel!
SPOILER ALERT - This book was amazing! It is the first book of the Naturals series. This is a must read. A girl named Cassie lost her mother to a serial killer at age 12. She is the put into an FBI force with naturals, teens like her, after her mother's death 5 years later. But deaths started to happen based around the death of her mother. All of the killings were connected. The killer of Cassie's mother hasn't been found yet. Totally recommend that you continue this series to find out what happens next.
Hamlet - William Shakespeare
This is a great book. I recommend it.
American Gods brings up an interesting idea as to the substance of gods, that they draw their power from our belief and sacrifices. American Gods starts off following Shadow, a man who was sentenced to a few years in prison for assault. In prison he makes friends with his cellmates like Low Key Liesmith. He is released from prison a day early because of the death of his wife. This is a fantastic read filled with action, drama, adventure, and romance.
The sequel to the popular Scythe, we once again follow the journeys of the newly appointed scythe Citra, and Rowan's vigilante work. Filled with all the crazy scythe action that we loved from the first book, this time Shusterman expands it by adding a mystery element throughout. This is again a fantastic book and if you like the first one you'll love Thunderhead too.
A Separate Peace is about a boy named Gene, and his roommate Finny. They often like to do bold and risky things, and often get away with it. However, one day everything changes. A tragic accident happens, and their lives are changed forever. This book is a good book if you like realistic fiction.
Thrilling story of a middle schooler moving to a new state because her mom gets a new job. Charle is forced to leave behind Ohio snow and her best friend to go to blazing Arizona!
It is a really nice fiction book for teens.
It is a very interesting book, but for me was a little confusing as well. It switches between characters and places very quickly.
It had a great plot and the moral of the story was great!
This book is about a girl named Molly, and how she always seems to be in unrequited love. Her twin sister tells Molly to woman up and tell her crush how she feels, but she never can. This book is a good book if you like drama and romance.
Again I'm writing this book review because of the soon coming final book of this series. Once again we follow Call as he is saved from one prison, only to be put back in another. His new prison has all of his worst enemies, Master Joseph the crazy ex-teacher at the magisterium and Alex, the man who murdered his best friend. This book is dramatic and full of plot twists beginning to end.
In my honest opinion, could have been better if there was more action. Not much going on in this book except for a girl who obsesses over petty crushes and never had a boyfriend once. If your into romance or whatever, by all means this book will be your BFF. If you are more into action/sci-fi/thriller/awesome stuff, then I don't recommend it. This book was kind of a disappointment for me. ;(
This book provides adventure, action, mystery, and everything you could ask for in 607 pages.
If you're looking for a book filled with facinating characters, mystery and a hint of romance, then this is the book for you. Jason Reynolds does a fantastic job with this easy-to-follow plot. Chapters are left at cliffhangers, characters are built up with background information, and the ending is purely heartwarming. For a story unlike any other, I recommend this book as a perfect summer read.
A Wrinkle In Time is a book about two siblings and a classmate. The siblings' father is a scientist, and he is lost somewhere in space and time. With the help of their friend, magical creatures, and a few witches, they are able to find their father. But will they be able to save him in time? This book is a good book if you enjoy reading science fiction books, or shorter books.
This is a great story of an amazing friendship! I would definentaly recommend this to everyone. It has a touching ending!
