Debbie Ryan Her Sweet Life
by Riley Brooks

View in Library Catalog



This book was about the life of Debbie Ryan. It told how she moved to different states and even Germany when she was younger. She was picked on by schoolmates a lot growing up. She started auditioning for tv and movie roles when she was 7. The movie 16 Wishes was one of her biggest successes as well as the tv show, “Jessie.”

Never Babysit The Hippopotamuses
by Doug Johnson

This book is about all the things you should and should not do to keep the hippos good while babysitting them. I liked the part where they had a nighttime snack and ate lots of popcorn and when they did cannonballs into the bath tub. They also like when they had pillow fights. Me and my siblings like to have pillow fights too. They are fun.

The Lincoln Conspiracy Brad Meltzer
by Brad Meltzer

View in Library Catalog



I’m not a fan of history, but I did interview Brad Meltzer many years ago for Sisters in Crime and have kept in touch with him periodically. He signed my purchased book, so it was only right to read it. I must say he and Josh Mensch provided many interesting facts on Lincoln’s early life and his election, along with details on the Pinkerton detective agency, including the first female private detective, that I found this book riveting. Perhaps if we’d have had more interesting reads like this, I might have enjoyed history class more. The similarity of Lincoln and current political unrest are hard to ignore. Highly recommended read.

The Lightning Thief
by Rick Riordan

In this book, Percy Jackson is the main character and he later realizes that his father is actually Poseidon, which makes him a half-blood. Being a half-blood comes with lots of trouble because he is now more prone to monster attacks, so he must train at Camp Half-Blood where many other half-bloods go to train and to master their skills. However, a conflict arises amongst the gods and Zeus' lightning bolt gets stolen. This incident is blamed on Poseidon because there was already a pre-existing feud between the two. Percy Jackson must go on a quest in order to prevent a war to break out amongst the Gods and to prove that it is not Poseidon who Zeus should blame. Percy Jackson realizes that it was actually one of his friends, Luke, who stole the lightning bolt because he wanted a war to break out amongst the gods since he thought that the Gods had been in power for too long. Percy ends up battling them and he was able to attain the lightning bolt on time. Poseidon talks to Percy Jackson and he calls Percy, "the true son of Poseidon." Back at camp, Luke ends up telling Percy that he is working for Kronos, a Titan, but Luke decided to let a scorpion sting Percy, with intentions to kill him. However, Percy manages to survive.

Song Of The Abyss
by Makiia Lucier

Song of the Abyss was honestly an emotional roller coaster for me. It includes themes of love, along with action and mystery. Song with the Abyss is basically a spin off of the previous book, Isle of Blood and Stone. The main character Reyna was brought up once in the previous book but the story was not centered around her. In this book Song of the Abyss we follow Reyna, the granddaughter of a famed navigator. She is 17 years old and aspires to be an explorer for the royal house of Saint John Del Mar. She is determined to prove the people wrong who believe that a girl could never be an explore. She returns home from a year-long expedition and know that her dream is soon to come. She is no longer an apprentice, but a Master Explorer. Upon the ship, Raiders attack and her dreams of becoming a famous explorer are pushed aside. Out of all of her crew in captain Reyna is the only to escape. The next time she sees her ship great mystery arises. The sailors have vanished. Reyna must go on a journey to the uncover the mystery of where the sailors have gone, while in the process placing her trust into a prince from a rival kingdom. They uncover a disturbing truth that the attack was no accident. Reyna must be brave and find a way to fix the mystery at hand. I recommend this book to anyone who likes fantasy, romance, and a little bit of action. The book inspired many things for me and I’m extremely happy to read it.

It was a decent book, if you are new to it or want to learn about it, this may not be the book to start with. Having some background knowledge prior to reading this book may make it better for you to understand.

Hunger Games Book 2
by Suzanne Collins

View in Library Catalog



This was a really good book also. I believe as the series goes on, the quality of the books get worse. Though, when I mean worse, they still are really good books that I would recommend to anyone. The games were good but I believe it wasn't as entertaining as the 74th annual games. This is because of the allies and the different picture behind this games. This games wasn't meant for fighting, yet, it was meant for a rebellion on both sides which is going to start an uprising. What Plutarch did was really good author's craft by Suzanne Collins with foreshadowing. The character development wasn't as prime, though, this book showed how big Katniss and Peeta and how much influence they have on the uprising.

Honor Girl A Graphic Memoir
by Maggie Thrash

View in Library Catalog



I really liked the book 'Honor Girl,' I think it is a book everyone should read. This book is a graphic novel and I think it was one of the best graphic novels I have ever read. This book is about a girl named Maggie Thrash who is in an all girls summer camp called Camp Bellflower which is over a 100 years old. At that camp she realizes that she is actually lesbian and falls in love with a girl name Erin. She is very confused because she didn't except to fall in love with a girl. Her first love is a rollercoaster and it doesn't turn out the way she expected it to. This book is a very funny and it talks about emotions that many people feel. You should definitely read this graphic novel.
