Your Review: I love The Maze Runner! It is so entertaining and there is a twist in almost every chapter! It was fast paced and was never boring. The only thing that I didn’t like is that it ended but, it is a series so there are three more books! My favorite character is probably Teresa. She is so tough and strong. She is also the only girl in the book, which I think is really cool! The really cool thing is that this book was so good… it was made into a movie! Just make sure that you read the book first! I think that people that do’t like a boring book should read this! It is a cliff hanger! Over all, I love this book and think that everyone should read it!

The Land of Stories: An Author’s Odyssey

Book Review by: Grace

Book by: Chris Colfer
Book Length: 464 pages

Story Summary: Alex and Conner Bailey’s uncle Lloyd (known as the Masked Man) has recruited an army that has the Wicked Witch of the West and her flying monkeys, the Queen of Hearts and her card soldiers, and Captain Hook and his pirates to take over the fairy-tale world and rule it. The twins decided to recruit an army from Conner’s writing from eighth grade, but there probably isn’t enough time to, because the Masked Man already captured the royal families, which has Queen Cinderella, Queen Snow White, and Queen Sleeping Beauty, and Queen Rapunzel and others. He wanted to execute them and rule a land of his own and the army that he recruited. Alex and Conner’s heart doesn’t only belong to the regular human world, but also the fairy tale. They want to save everybody and all of their friends. Will they ever recruit their whole army or will their uncle execute the royal families and kill everybody in the fairy-tale world?

Your Review: I really like it how the Bailey twins are determined to recruit an army and save the fairy tale world. I didn’t like it how the Masked Man and his army captured the royal families and want to execute them.

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 Last Kids on Earth

Book Review by: Logan

Book by: Max Brallier
Book Length: 225 pages

Story Summary: In this book there are four main characters Jack, Quint, Dirk, June. Jack is the post-apocaliptic hero. Quint is the Nerdy scientist. Dirk aka Dirk Savage is the bully, and June is the pretty girl that jack try’s to save. The time is in the apocalypse. Jack was trying to defeat a big monster and along the way he found his best friend, his bully, and his crush. He was trying to save June.

Your Review: One thing I liked about this book is how smart and tough Jack was. One thing I didn’t like was when ever Jack went to save June she told him she didn’t need it. My favorite character was Dirk because he took monsters and zombies down with his bare hands. Yes this book would make a good movie and I think someone that was kind of like Jack in the book could star in it. Students that like zombies and monsters would like to read it because that’s a big part of the story. Yes I recommend it because it’s interesting. Yes they should because it’s not that hard to read and it’s a little humorus.
