The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

Posted in book review tagged , , , , at 2:31 pm by blueblazeslib

The book that I am going to write about is The Graveyard Book.

The Graveyard Book is about a killer that is trying to kill a family, but the toddler escapes.  The toddler goes to the graveyard and the people of the graveyard protect him from the killer.  His parents are ghosts now.  His guardian is between life and death.

It’s funny how that he is only allowed in the graveyard but he keeps going out.

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Twilight is a captivating story about the complex love two people can share. Bella Swan moves to Forks, Washington to live with her father. Her first day of high school consists of her feeling hated by the most beautiful guy she has ever seen. This boy is Edward Cullen. Edward attempts to convince Bella to stay away from him for her own safety, but there is no hope. Soon they fall in an undeniably deep love. There’s only one problem… Edward’s a vampire. Twilight paints a picture of an impenetrable love only made more spectacular by the fact that at any second Bella could be killed by the one thing she feels the need to live for.
