Goosebumps Reader Beware
by R.L.Stine

View in Library Catalog



This book had different endings. I was instructed to put myself as the main character. At the bottom of the page I was given options to go to different pages. It was kind of difficult to know what page I was on, when I was ready to read again. I did like the book, though. The next Goosebumps book I am reading is not the same format.

Baseball Genius Double Play
by Tim Green and Derek Jeter

View in Library Catalog



Okay, lets start off with this comment, this book is amazing. This is the perfect book for pre-teens to young adults that love baseball. You might be scared away when you see that this is the second book in the series,’‘ Baseball Genius” . No worries, because Green and Jeter do an amazing job with explaining stuff that happened in the last book. That does not mean I don’t recommend that first book, I do. I’m just saying Its easy to start it without reading the first. Here’s another thing that’s interesting, this is a book were there are two authors. The first is an amazing sports writer, Tim Green. The second is the, future hall of famer in 2020, and star shortstop for the Yankees who won five World Series Championships, Derek Jeter. This is an amazing book, yet I would not recommend that you do,’’ A Chapter A Night” because the chapters are super short, like most of Green’s novels. Well, anyways please read this book because if you don’t, your missing out on something great.

Running Out of Time

Running out of time is my favorite Haddix book and even though it is a little easy I have read it too many times to count. One time there was a book worms meeting at my school and I almost screamed at my team for getting it wrong! (I didn't) It is a idea I have never heard before and it is a amazing story.

The Rifle

I thought I remembered reading this book as a tween. I definitely recognize the cover, but I did NOT remember the ending. I won't ruin it for you, but all I will say is that I wish I hadn't finished it. It does NOT have a happy ending. Honestly, this book probably deserves closer to five stars, but since 4.5 stars wasn't an option, and I hated the ending, I opted for four stars. It was an interesting and well written story with a relatively captivating plot. I just couldn't stomach the ending. That said, if you like books that don't have happy endings, I would recommend it.

Marvelous Land of Oz

I REALLY like this book because it has magic, and it is a wonderful sequel to The Wizard of Oz, and is about who gets to rule the Emerald City.

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

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.

Just Grace
by Harper, Charise Mericle

View in Library Catalog



This is a cute story that is a quick and easy read. I love the fact that she incorporates challenging vocabulary with a definition as part of the story. In some cases, the writing style struck me as a bit odd. For example, the character rarely uses contractions. Perhaps the author did that to hint at the personality quirks of the character, but it came across as a little unnatural to me. In addition, most of the story is written through the use of lists. I'm sure this is also due to character development tactics, but the list format made it a little harder for me to connect to the story. All in all, it is a cute story with some minor flaws that are fairly easily overlooked.

Their Eyes Were Watching God
by Zora Neale Hurston

It was a good book and I enjoyed following Janie's journey through life and love, but the fact that I had to overanalyze this for school took some of the pleasantness from 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!!
