Book by: Stephanie Meyer
Book Length: 498 pages

Story Summary: this story is about a teenage girl called Bella Swan who decides to move away from her mom and step-dad in Phoenix, Arizona, and move in with her dad in Forks, Washington. There she starts high-school and falls head over heels for a one hundred four year old vampire called Edward Cullen. Together they go on adventures, and Bell discovers the dangers and wonders of being a vampire and soon she wants to be one herself………….Read the next book in the series to find out what happens next.

Your Review: I liked this book and would recommend it because it has adventure, thrill, and comedy(kinda). Although it might not be for everyone because it was a little cheesy. My favorite character was the main character, Bella Swan, or her unsuspecting parents, Renee and Charlie. This book is a movie so, if you liked it be sure to check that out, too. I really think you should read this book next time because it is an all around great book, although people have been very controversial about this book so if you don’t like it, that’s OK, because this is a split nation sort of thing so be sure to check it out!

The Land of Stories: Worlds Collide

Book Review by: Anna Ryn

Book by: Chris Colfer
Book Length: 448 pages

Story Summary: Conner’s twin sister Alex has been possessed by Mornia (a really powerful witch) and is using her to take over our world. To make things worse, the literary army is also battling them. Now, it’s up to Conner, his friends from the fairy tale world, and the characters from his books to defeat Mornia, the witches, and the literary army. Will they be able to do it without harming Alex before she destroys New York City?

Your Review: I liked the sixth Land of Stories because it had so many great characters and details to really motivate you to keep reading. The only thing that I can think of that I didn’t like about this book was how it was the last book in the series. I didn’t like it being the last book because I loved the series so much I didn’t want it to end. One of my favorite characters has to be Red. (from Little Red Riding Hood) I liked her so much because she is sassy and not afraid to be herself. I don’t think this book will make a good movie because of how fictional it is.
Any students that enjoy fiction would love this book because of how many fictional things and characters are in this book. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a good fairy tale. I think that my peers that like fictional books should definitely read this if they haven’t already.

Story Summary: When Nic, a slave in the mines outside of Rome, is forced to enter a sealed cavern containing the lost treasures of Julius Caesar, he finds much more than gold and gemstones:He discovers an anctient bulla, an amulet that belonged to the great Caesar, filled with magic once reserved for the gods- magic some romans would kill for.

In a quest to stop the rebellion, save Rome, and secure his own freedom, Nic must harness the magic within himself and defeat the empire’s most powerful and savage leaders.

Your Review: Mark of the Thief was a wonderful book, and I recomend all of my peers to read it and choose it for their next book choice. I think this because the book has lots ov aventure and is exciting to all readers whom like action packed reading. I think this book would be good as a movie because it is action packed and you can visualise while you are reading. Author Jennifer Nelson worked really hard on this book and I love the fact that it makes you want to keep reading and you never want to put the book down.

What i didn’t like was the big bad wolf. He made me so mad, I know he was hungry but the pigs w did nothing to him. It would make a great movie. The Three little pig should star.
