Being a cyborg isn’t easy. Especially for 16-year old Cinder with a mother who rejects her, and two step-sisters who treat her like a, well, cyborg. The only joy from like comes from her youngest and kindest sister Peony, and her job of being the kingdom’s most popular mechanic. This widespread reputation brings the handsome prince to her shop to help fix an android with “classified information” on it, as Prince Kai said “jokingly.” But, when Peony is infected with the fatal plague, Cinder’s life is flipped over, as she is submitted to being tested to find the cure. Struggling to keep her cyborg identity hidden from Prince Kai, and save her sister, Cinder embarks on an epic journey that will change her life forever.
There are many plays on the story Cinderella, but this one is especially unique, and much less lovey-dovey, yet still appealing to helpless romantics, like myself. I enjoyed this one more than most that I have read, because of the futuristic spin played on it. The character choice is unique and the setting is quite unique, as well are Cinder’s motivations. I recommend this book to girls ages 10 through 15. 4/5 books- Happy Reading!
When I picked up this book, my expectations were set low. After the movies I didn’t expect much from it, at all. I couldn’t have been more wrong. This book is located in Forks, Washington and focuses on a 16 year old girl, Bella Swan. She moves to this place after living in sunny Phoenix, and fully expects hell. Instead, she meets a mysterious Edward Cullen, who she soon learns is a vampire. Going through the motions of being in love with a vampire, Bella must adapt to life with a mind reading, blood-thirsty vampire that she loves.
This book was amazing, to say the least. Meyer did amazing with character development, and lets you experience the plot to its full extent. She had incredible pacing, to keep you hooked at all times, and kept it surprisingly PG-13. I very much loved this book and recommend it to girls of the age 13 and up. 5/5 Books, Happy Reading!
Love-struck mermaid Lilly is living as a human on land to learn more about her late-human-mother’s past. Since she arrived on land she has fallen for the swimmer jock- Brody, and managed to become best friends with Shannon. But, when her enemy Quince, kisses her, binding her to him for life, she must use everything in her power to unbind him, and stop the mer-transformation, before the mermaid enchantment makes her love him. Because she doesn’t…right? Oh! And one more catch. Lilly is the heir to her fathers throne.
This book is fun and leaves you floundering for more every time you close the book. Childs writing abilities scale the wall, and completely take her readers by the fin. Don’t miss out on this oppor-tuna-ty to read this book! I recommend this book for girl readers who have a hard time staying interested in books,10 and up. 3.5/5 books, Happy Reading!
This book is very unique in more than one way. 16-year old Juliette has been neglected all her life due to her- erhm- abilities. When the Reestablishment (an organization slowly taking over the world) promises to put the word back into its original cheery state and get rid of anyone ruining the earth, Juliette is overjoyed. Until she realizes, she’s one of those people. She gets locked up in an asylum, with many other “unhealthy,” “unstable,” and “unsuitable” people. Except, unlike most, she stays sane. One day the Reestablishment sends her a Cellmate- Adam- the only person who was ever nice to her, she is extremely confused with one question in her mind why? Juliette is suddenly yanked from her cell and is whisked away to meet Warner a 19- year old boy who has been obsessed with her and her abilities his entire life, her life is tipped upside down. The only thing that keeps her sane is a person- Adam.
This book was pure amazing. It was filled to the brim with excitement and energy. What captured me most was the way it was written. Written from Juliette’s POV, her thoughts are constantly crossed out, and replaced with what she wants herself to think. This style of writing allowed me to meet the character in an incredibly new, and intimate way I never knew an author could provide. I recommend this trilogy for all girls 12 and up. 6/5 Books (yes I did do that on purpose), Happy Reading!
This book is about a girl who is visiting her grandparents on a snow day. When her car is hit on a sharp turn, instantly killing her two parents, and eventully killing her younger borther, she has a one-day out of body experience. Within this day you flashback to learn about her past, her love, and her family.
Forman was able to create a one-day experience very well, without ever confusing the reader.This was very impressive, and I give props to the writer. I reccomend this book to ages of 13 and up, due to the emotional impact of this story. Not recommended to people who have trouble paying attention, for it is not a fast paced book. 3/5 Books, Happy Reading!
This series is sci-fi fantasy, but I like to think anyone would enjoy it. In Maximum Ride there are 5 characters, Fang, Iggy, and Max (16), and Nudge (11), Gasman, or Gazzy (8), and Angel (6). Each of these characters are 2% Avian, their blood having been tampered with by “Whitecoats.” 8 years ago, Max and her “flock” escaped the School, where they were constantly poked, and prodded by scientists. They escaped with the help of a man named Jeb, their substitute of a father, who died 2 years ago. This book allows you join Max and her flock as they all discover themselves in more ways than one.
Truthfully, this is one of my all-time favorite series. Whenever a friend asks for a good book/series to read, this is one right off the tip of my tongue. James Patterson has outdone himself, yet again. This series can appeal to boys and girls, which is something hard to be able to do. He adds action and mystery for the boys, and romance (but not to much) for the girls. This series is one that I never put down. And as soon as I finished the last book series I set it on the table, and started all over with book one. I would recommend this book for anyone 10 years old, to 16 years old. 5/5 Books, Happy Reading!
This is an amazing novel, that absolutely captivated me from beginning to end. Everneath is an amazing twist on the Greek Goddess, Persephone’s, story. In this book Nikki Beckett has been brought to the underworld by a mysterious boy, by of the name of Cole. In our world it has been six months since she disappeared with this boy. In the Underworld, she has been having the life sucked out of her to fuel the Underworld for 100 years. And somehow, against all odds, she survives. Now she is returning to her old life, where her dad no longer trusts her, her little brother doesn’t recognize her, and her friends think she is a druggie. Worst of all is how her old boyfriend, Jack, has suffered. Now she has six months to fix everything that went wrong while she was gone, before she is sucked back into a life of torture- this time forever. But as time goes on, Nikki realizes she isn’t quite so willing to go back. In a battle with fate, Nikki Beckett’s story will leave you with an explosive ending you will never forget.
This romance novel is so amazing, and beautiful. It is twisted with romance, hatred, and fate, that literally left me shaking. I extremely recommend this book to any girls from ages 12-16 that are interested in Greek history/myths/gods, or anyone who enjoyed the Percy Jackson series. Also, any girl who enjoys a good romance novel, though I recommend brushing up on your Greek myths, first! It isn’t exactly a book you will read over, and over again, but it is a book you will keep close at hand, just in case. 4/5 Books, Happy Reading!
