My Favorite Book this year ^_^

This year I read two really good books so far, one was Boy2Girl. It was about a boy from New York City named Sam. His mother died so he had to go live with his cousin in England. He was starting off at a new school and to join this group of friends that he met, he had to prove himself that he was good enough to join. I would recomend that book more for girls than boys, but hey you never know, boys might like it too. ^_^ The other book was called Dead Girls Are Easy. It was about this girl named Nicki Styx. She was strictly goth and vintage until she had a glimpse of the afterlife. It left her with the ability to see dead people. Dr. Joe Bascombe is the surgeon who saved her life. At first he didn’t believe that she could really see the dead, but as their relationship grew, so did Dr. Joe’s belief in Nikki’s ability. I liked them both a lot. As it turns out, for Nicki Styx, death was just the beginning. I liked both of these books and I would recomend that they both be on your reading list. ^_^

My favorite book this year

My favorite book that I read this year was Macbeth. It was my favorite because it was a drama and at the same time, a thriller. It was very violent, but I still liked it a lot it because it kept you guessing. At first I thought one thing but towards the end of the book I thought a different thing, and at the end the outcome was totally different than what I expected. This is why I liked it so much.

The Lifeguard

The Lifeguard was my favorite book that I read this year. The authors of the book, James Patterson and Andrew Gross really captured every part of the book in a new and intriguing way. It was my favorite book because it involved every aspect of writing. It changed from mystery to love to robbery and to much more. This book is about a man named Ned Kelly who meets the woman of his dreams and encounters a situation that makes him and his friends get involved in an art heist. Ned also winds up being double-crossed, leaving his friends dead. Ned’s trouble is that he is running from both the FBI and the killers. He struggles to get his revenge on the murders and clear his own name.

Best book I’ve read

Ender’s Game, by Orson Scott Card is a science-fiction novel written about a young boy named Ender, who has the potential to be a great general. After surpassing all of his classmates in physical and mental ability, he is trained at a special camp in space where he’s bullied to the point that he kills his predator. The story really draws you in, making you think so much about what is going on, that you have no time to comprehend what will happen next. There are so many emotions that young adults can relate to, that are told through the perspective of an eight year old, that a really different feeling is presented. However, the story seemed so exhausting, that even after not being able to put it down, I wanted to do something else immediately after I was finished. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to read a good book that is immensely different than most of the books that they have previously read.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

This book was the best book I have read so far. It was the last of the Harry Potter trilogy so I felt as if I had to read it, and I am glad that I did. The book was so good- it had action, scary scenes and a little romance. Everyone suspected that Harry dies. Well. that is partly true, but you’ll have to read the book to find out. The only thing I did not like about the book was the epilogue. Sure it was happy, but that just depresses me. It looked like J. K. Rowling just wanted to finish writing the book.

Great Books!

If you haven’t already read it, make sure to check out The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick. Don’t be put off by the size of the book (over 500 pages), because much of the story is in pictures–and they are really great. This book combines mystery and suspense with a bit of history, and the unique illustration style makes it a book you won’t forget.

In The True Meaning of Smekday by Adam Rex, you will laugh out loud at the zany adventures of a girl, her cat, and a well-meaning alien on their cross-country trip, all trying to save the planet from another alien invasion.

Best Book Read All Year

I read Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince a few months ago. It was about Harry’s school life after he got a potion textbook that belonged to the half blood prince, who turned out to be a potion master. Since Voldemort returned from his ghost life, Dumbledore teaches Harry about Tom Riddle’s childhood and how he became Voldemort. I kind of sensed that someone would get hurt, but I didn’t think that Dumbledore would die at the end. It was a very unexpected story and very sad, but at the same time, it led to the big battle between Harry and Voldemort, which was unavoidable. It was very remarkable and made me look forward to the next book.

Favorite Book Read this Year

           A book that I have recently read was the Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas. This story was exciting and took place in France during the early 1800’s. I thought that the Count was awesome because he was able to escape jail after being framed and seek out his enemies and sabatoge their lives. He went from rich to poor to filthy rich and got his revenge after being locked in the slammers for twenty years.

My Favorite Book this Year

During our Spring Break, I read Jodi Picoult’s My Sister’s Keeper. The book was a heartbreaking story about a young girl named Anna who was genetically made to help her older sister Kate fight Leukemia. Anna has spent her entire life supplying Kate with transplants as she struggles against this never ending battle. When Kate needs a kidney transplant, her family turns to Anna, assuming that she would gladly give Kate hers. However, Anna feels that she is only prolonging Kate’s life until she needs another piece of herself. Anna refuses to give up her kidney, and her decision tears apart her family. Picoult changed narratives every chapter, from Anna, to her despairing mother, to her delinquent brother, to her confused father. It is extremely difficult to pick sides when reading this book, because you want to see Kate live, but you also want Anna to live her life fully. I could not put this book down, and after a tear-jerking ending, I decided that this book would become one of my favorites.

Favorite Book

The best book that I read out of school this year, was Animal Farm.  It portrays Russia during World War II through the eyes of farm animals.  Seeing the action done through the eyes of animals, simpilifies the true brutality of the situation.  It’s hard to believe the pigs were capable of such corruption and greed.  I believe the hatred that the animals show for humans represents the cruel creatures that we can become.
