11 Birthdays By Wendy Mass
by Wendy Mass

View in Library Catalog



This book was awesome. 11 Birthdays is an action-packed story with something new I have never found in reading. The twist of Wendy having her 11th birthday everyday put me, the reader, into awe. I was enjoyed by this story and this new direction the story took. The ending was also very cool when her and Leo realized that they are best friends forever. This book was great, one of my all time favorite books with a lot of suspence and curiousness involved. This was a great book.

Red Queen

This book is so good! The plot was great and it made me want to read more and more. Mare grew up in the Stilts, but she ends up in a palace. This shows how everyone is given a chance no matter where they came from. Mare is a very inspiring character and her personality keeps the book interesting. I would rate this book a 5/5 because it is very adventurous and if you like romance with action, I would recommend this book to you.

Geek Girls Rising

This is book is beyond inspirational. The stories of 43 independent women in the tech industry are truly motivational. Each story shows individuality and is unique, however, the ending message is the same: Women dominating the tech industry in amazing ways. The presence of females in technical industries has been much less of that of men in technical industries. Over the decades, the hardworking women in that specific field, who have gone through good and bad experiences, have been trying to share their story, in hopes of inspiring girls to pursue a career in that field. My personal favorite story was that of Julia Hartz. Although she was expecting a child, she opened the largest online ticketing company in the world, Eventbrite, with her husband. In the book, it was made clear that Hartz supports women being leaders but finds it almost equally important, to be honest when it comes to family and raising kids. The author quotes, “‘It’s important for women role models to really show up and continue to develop their own careers and be active role models for other women.’ She also wants the women in leadership to show their human side and be candid about how hard it can be to lean in while also raising kids and taking care of the family.” All in all, I would definitely recommend this book to anyone because it empowers women and shows that anything is possible with hard work.

Evermore
by Sara Holland

This book is a continuation of Everless in the Everless duology, and it totally lives up to the potential of its predecessor. I absolutely loved this page turner (especially since the ship I supported since the beginning finally came to life). The suspense and plot twists were unreal, especially as we got closer and closer to the climax between Jules and the Sorceress. Overall, it was a fantastic conclusion to the duology.

Concrete Rose

I'm not usually a fan of prequels, but this one was exceptional. I loved reading about the parents from The Hate U Give. The different perspective offered in this book was interesting to read about. A practically single teen dad who's not in the best position struggling with the newness of fatherhood and maintaining his other relationships while juggling his responsibilities. The characters were all so memorable so even though there wasn't a huge climactic point, the story of Maverick's journey and the struggles that shaped him into who he would become was gripping in itself. I would definitely recommend this to someone who has read The Hate U Give. (4.5 STARS ROUNDED UP)

Gone

The book Gone had a very good concept. It was never done decently before. It was a dystopian world where there were only kids. Kids ruled everything and kids were everyone. I think the books were just too long for me.
