Allegiant /
by Roth, Veronica
I've finished the series!!! And it was soooooo gooooooodddd!!!!! Everyone must read the Divergent trilogy, now! This book probably tied with Divergent for being my favorite in the series. Make sure to have tissues when you read this book!   posted Apr 4, 2014 at 8:23AM

by Dessen, Sarah
So cute! Must romance novels are cheesy but this one wasn't. Highly, highly recommend.   posted Jan 9, 2014 at 2:21PM

Avalon High /
by Cabot, Meg
This book was awesome! I flew through it. I could not put it down! For some reason I've always been kind of prejudiced towards Meg Cabot and though of her as some author who writes light, fluffy, princess books (you know the kind). But holey crapamoley this book proved me W-R-O-N-G! I enjoyed it so much! You have to read this book!   posted Mar 8, 2014 at 8:07AM

Beauty : a retelling of the story of Beauty & the beast /

Breadcrumbs /
by Ursu, Anne.
This book is a retelling of the story The Snow Queen. If you liked the movie Frozen I highly recommend this book! It was really great, my first book of Anne Ursu's. You should read this!   posted Feb 10, 2014 at 9:20AM

Bridge to Terabithia /
by Paterson, Katherine.
It was so sad, but so good! I read it when I was younger and didn't really get some of it, but now I totally understand! So even if it's a childrens' book, I would really, REALLY recommend it to teens. Litterally one of my favorite books of all time.   posted Jan 22, 2014 at 4:28PM

Cross my heart and hope to spy
by Ally Carter
After reading I’d Tell You I Love You, but then I’d have to Kill You, I didn’t really think that there was any need to have a sequel. So one day I was bored and I picked up this book. And I read it in half a day because it was so good. End of story.   posted Apr 23, 2014 at 2:55PM

Dangerous /
by Hale, Shannon
Really exciting and action-packed read! This book was soo good!!! Great for sci-fi fans.   posted Mar 28, 2014 at 11:00AM

Divergent
by Roth, Veronica
Divergent takes place in a future, worn-down Chicago. The society has divided into 5 factions, which are groups of people who focus on the opposite virtue of what they believe caused the war that made them in the state they are in now. For example: Amity, one of the factions, believe that violence was the cause, so they are very peaceful. Every year, when a citizen turns 16 they must choose a faction to live in the rest of their life. Once they have chosen their faction, they must complete an initiation process, where they have to prove that they are cut out for the faction they have chosen. If they don’t make it past intiation they become factionless, which are basically the poor. To help them choose their faction, the society gives them a test to help them find the faction which suits them best. The main character, Beatrice Prior, is from the group Abnegation, the selfless. After her testing process, she realizes that she is a Divergent. But just what a Divergent is, she doesn’t know. Divergent was so, so, so good. 5 out of 5 stars. A million out of a million stars! You’ve got to read this book!   posted Mar 22, 2014 at 8:51PM

Dragon flight
by Jessica Day George
This book is the sequel to Dragon Slippers. I think the first book in this series was better, but this book was really good, too. The plot is a lot different from the first book, and there is a lot more romance between Creel and Luka for everyone who wished there was more in the first book. I really, really love this series, and if you liked the first book, Dragon Slippers, you should pick up this one.   posted Apr 23, 2014 at 2:45PM

Dragon slippers /

Awesomely epic in an epic awesome way.   posted Aug 24, 2013 at 1:24PM

Dragon spear
by George, Jessica Day
Dragon Spear, which is the third and final book in the Dragon Slippers series, was a really good conclusion to the series as well as being immensely entertaining. I would say the other two books are better, but this book is still good!   posted Apr 23, 2014 at 2:47PM

Ella enchanted /
by Levine, Gail Carson.
A twist on Cinderella. Ella is so funny, the romance is so perfectly played, and this is just an overall great book. I highly recommend.   posted Jan 22, 2014 at 4:27PM

Ellie's chance to dance /
by Moss, Alexandra.
I've probably re-read this series, what, three times now? This series was one of my absolute favorites when I was younger. Being an aspiring ballerina and all. I wouldn't recommend this series to tweens or teens. But for kids 10 and younger, these books are super good!   posted Aug 26, 2013 at 3:05PM

Enna burning

Flipped /

How to steal a dog : a novel /
by O'Connor, Barbara.
I went into this book very excited at the idea of the story, but finished it not quite as happy. While the idea of the book was wonderful, the way the author wrote it was not so wonderful. Maybe I'm being a little to harsh, considering it's written for younger kids not teens, but I felt I really could have enjoyed it if it had been written diferently. But, that said, I still think it was a good book, but I would recommend it to younger ages.   posted Mar 21, 2014 at 11:17AM

I'd tell you I love you, but then I'd have to kill you /
by Carter, Ally.
This series just keeps getting better and better. Even if you thought that this first book was okay, you still need to read the rest. These books are just ssooo amazing!! There's suspense and romance, they're just amazing!   posted Aug 24, 2013 at 1:28PM

Love comes softly /
by Oke, Janette, 1935-
It was good and I recommend it. It wasn’t really slow-moving it was just a little boring. And that might be mostly because it is written for adults, but I still thought it was good, very predictable ending, but good   posted Aug 24, 2013 at 1:32PM

Peter Pan /
by Barrie, J. M. 1860-1937

The iron king /
by Kagawa, Julie
This book was very similar to The Treachery of Beautiful Things. While this book was good, I enjoyed The Treachery of Beautiful Things more. The main character, Meghan Chase, was kind of wimpy and was always, always, getting into tight spots and having someone else come to rescue her. But otherwise, I really enjoyed this book!! It was exciting and I love the romance. I would definitely recommend it.   posted Apr 21, 2014 at 11:04AM

The Thief Lord
by Cornelia Funke
The Thief Lord is about two orphan boys, who are brothers, whose parents died. Their mean aunt and uncle only want to adopt the youngest of the two, Bo. Prosper, the older brother, and Bo don’t want to be separated so they run away to Venice, Italy. Once in Venice they join a group of orphans/ “thieves”. The leader of the group, Scipio, calls himself the Thief Lord and, so the other orphans think, is an expert at pulling off heists. Meanwhile Prosper and Bo’s aunt and uncle have discovered the boys are in Venice and hire a detective to look for them. It’s a really good book and great for all ages. Highly recommend.   posted Mar 10, 2014 at 9:01PM
