    The Princess Saves Herself in This One

    The Princess Saves Herself in This One - Amanda Lovelace

    I read a couple of chapters of this book at the book store and I wasn't able to finish it, but it was really interesting and I would like to see how the book turns out in the end.

    The Selection

    The Selection - Kiera Cass

    I really liked this book because it makes you have butterflies in your stomach when the main character and the guy she falls in love with are together. Also, the author describes everything really good and the book gets more and more interesting. If you like romance, this book is for you. Also, this book is a series, so you can read the same topic of this book three times because there are multiple books.

    A Little Something Different

    A Little Something Different - Sandy Hall

    This book isn't your everyday love story, because it's not in their point of view. You see everyone's point of view besides Lea and Gabe (the two that are in love). It's really funny, especially the bench's point of view. If you love romantic comedy, give this book a try.

    Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports

    Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports - James Patterson

    The third book in this series, Maximum Ride: Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports is a decent continuation of the story. However, there is a lot of action in the story that, after a while, gets a bit repetitive. The plot of this story is decent. I would recommend reading the other two books of the series before reading this one. I would give it a 6.5/10.

    The Hunt

    The Hunt - Andrew Fukuda

    The book is GREAT. It's about a boy who, against all odds, is the last human alive in a world full of vampires. He has to blend in so they don't kill him; he can't laugh, he can't cough, he can't sneeze, he cannot break character. If you're into books like The Hunger Games or Divergent then I definitely would recommend this book.

    Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto

    Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto - Nami Sano

    This story is about this one guy named Sakamoto who's basically perfect. Each chapter is about a different person who knows/dislikes Sakamoto and tries to ruin his reputation, However, each person ultimately fails due to some random circumstance. Truly worthy of the comedy genre, I would recommend the story to anyone who likes reading comedy manga.

    Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code

    Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code - Eoin Colfer

    Artemis Fowl: The Eternity Code is a great entry to readers of this series. It has an interesting plot for a fantasy/sci-fi genre. The dialogue is decent and easy to understand, as well. For people who have read the series or are looking for something with a fair amount of tension with elements of fantasy, I would recommend reading this book.

    Scythe - Neal Shusterman

    Scythe is set in a futuristic utopia, where all of the world's problem's have been fixed. Revive centers can save the dead, hunger has been ended, everyone leads a comfortable life. The only problem left is population control. Scythes glean people, killing them, and no one will revive them. Two people are chosen as apprentices; neither of them want to be sythes, but ultimately one will take the position of scythe. This is definitely a good book worth your time to read, filled with adventure and action.
