Mornings on Main
by Jodi Thomas

View in Library Catalog



This book celebrates the strength of female friends, the pain of Alzheimers and aging and the path of true love. The author creatively showed the reader that what one person thinks and lives as a path to life, does not always work out that way--the wonder of love has a way of changing things.

Ouran High School Host Club 1
by Bisco Hatori

View in Library Catalog



If your thinking of starting to read Manga, or already have read some Manga and are looking for something good to read, than I suggest Ouran High School Host club. Ouran High School Host Club is a Romantic comedy of sorts, (probably more comedy than romance, tho.) about Haruhi, a poor, scholarship student attending Ouran, a prestigious school filled to the brim, with the rich, and wealthy. One day, Haruhi stumbles across the old abandon, Music Room 3. Seeing as a good place to study, she goes in and finds 6 good - looking men?!?!? Haruhi was just going to leave when.... she accidentally bumps into a $80,000 vase! Since Haruhi is poor, she can't pay back the Host Club, resulting in her becoming a member of the the Host club.

Misty of Chincoteague

This is a book that was one of my favorites as a child. I decided to re-read it recently and it did not disappoint. It's definitely still in my top 5 favorite children's books. I'm going to re-read the rest of the series too. It's THAT good. The quality of writing is excellent, and the plot twist near the end is fabulous (even when you're re-reading it). I would recommend it to horse lovers, animal lovers, and anybody who just wants to try out a new realistic juvenile fiction series.

Schindler's List
by Thomas Keneally

View in Library Catalog



This book is a great chronicle of a normal human Oskar Schindler. He is portrayed as an anti-hero, with all of his mistakes and flaws. It is a journey through the history and experiences that took place during the Holocaust. Highly recommend the book, since the movie did not include everything the book could.

Starling

I really wanted to enjoy this book, but its very slow and very confusing through out the book. I don't recommend reading it.

The Bean Trees

OMG! By far the most amazing book ever. Definitely read this book. It kept me on the edge of my chair and made me HATE to have to put it down. I am in LOVE with it!!

The Baby-Sitters Club #1: Kristy's Great Idea
by Ann M. Martin

View in Library Catalog



I re-read this because I remember this series from reading it as a tween. It's definitely not quite as enthralling as some of the other books I've been re-reading lately. That said, it's an easy read and has very relatable characters for tween readers.

5 Worlds Book 1: The Sand Warrior
by Mark Siegel,Alexis Siegel

View in Library Catalog



The vibrant art style of this graphic novel caught my eye right away. The "reluctant chosen one" plot is fairly predictable, but the quick pacing and world-building kept me interested--couldn't resist reading it one sit-down. The fun and colorful inhabitants of the titular "Five Worlds" will keep me following this series.

The Land of Stories: An Author's Odyssey
by Chris Colfer

Chris leaves us again with his signature cliffhanger! My favorite character was the Blissworm! I applaud the author for clearly stating the message, loud and proud, which was: Children around the world, let your imagination run wild! Always believe in yourself no matter the situation! Anyone can be a writer, but what you have to offer is how you will make your stand on this world!

Fancy Nancy: Nancy Clancy, Super Sleuth
by Jane O'Connor

View in Library Catalog



I would rate this story as above average for a children's book. It has a cute story and an interesting plot. The ending was a somewhat predictable, but in my opinion that is pretty par for the course when it comes to children's mysteries. It was well written. I especially love that Nancy uses big words from time to time, but she explains what those big words mean. It's a fantastic opportunity to expand the reader's vocabulary without reading a book that is too challenging. I would definitely recommend it to any child interested in a mystery with a female protagonist.
