Wings by Aprilynne Pike

Posted in book review tagged , , at 4:01 pm by blueblazeslib

The story unfolds when high school sophomore Laurel Sewell wakes up one day to find something resembling wings growing forth from between her shoulder blades. With few friends, she manages to find herself torn between the only two people who know her secret. When a dangerous enemy appears on the scene, perhaps threatening both the safety of Laurel’s family as well as the faerie kingdom itself, both boys do their best to rush to Laurel’s rescue.

I liked this book because it was interesting from the beginning to the end. And I can relate to a lot of things Laurel feels in the book.

I’d recommend this book to teenage girls because it tells a story about a girl who is a normal teen going to high school. And teenage girls would be able to relate to some things Laurel deals with.

The Chocolate War by Robert Cormier

Posted in book review tagged , , at 4:53 pm by blueblazeslib

The chocolate war was a very interesting book. It wasn’t at all what I thought it was going to be about but it ended up being one of my all time favorite movies. It’s about a young boy who attends a private school that is run by a group of high school students that call themselves the Vigils. They give different assignments to different kids every week and see if they can carry out with them.

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

I liked the Lovely Bones because it was interesting. It kept you on the edge of your seat every time something happened. I couldn’t relate to the book. I got into the book so much that I felt like I was really in the book right next to Suzie looking down on her family like she was.

The Assist by Neil Swidey

Posted in book review tagged , , , at 12:52 pm by blueblazeslib

the assist was a really good book and it really motivated me to try hard in all I do. I am fortunate I do not live in a place like these kids grew up in. It is a story about high school boys that deal with their problems on the court and off the court in their ghetto neighborhoods.

A Child Called it by Dave Pelzer

Posted in book review tagged , , , at 6:23 pm by blueblazeslib

I like the book A Child Called It because it showed how some people have to live their lives on a day to day basis.. the little boy David gets abused by his mother and and he still does all he can for her. She burns him and she beats him which shows that some people around the world have to live through this from day to day. i think this book demonstrates that people should  appreciate the life that they have because other people have it worse.

A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks

Posted in book review tagged , at 6:18 pm by blueblazeslib

A Walk To Remember was one of best book that I have ever read.Once I started to read it I thought it was nothing like the movie. The movie made it look like Landon didn’t want to do anything he did, but in the book he did the things he did because he wanted to get into a good college. I think the book is a lot different from the movie.

Eagle Strike by Anthony Horowitz

Posted in book review tagged , at 4:54 pm by blueblazeslib

This was my favorite book in 6th grade. It is about a kid named Alex Rider, a secret agent who walked around and said blight. In this book there is an intense car chase, a bullfight, and even have to survive as a human target in a video game. Once you are done you can go out and get the movie at blockbuster. The movie isn’t as good as the book but its still interesting to see how the director portrays the characters.

It by Stephen King

Stephen Kings IT is a great book and i would recommend this book to anyone who likes a long story.
The book isnt “scary” its long and excellent, but the movie isnt as good as the book but i still own the duluxe version.
i think everybody should read this book and watch the movie.
the beginning is a little slow but its worth it.
