Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer

Rating: Excellent! (5)

Artemis Fowl  by  Eoin Colfer

Artemis Fowl is a twelve year old criminal mastermind. He has pulled off heists that people cannot even imagine. Now he is about to pull off his biggest heist yet; he is going to try and trick the Faerie people out of their gold. But maybe this time he has bitten off more than he can chew by tangling with Captain Holly Short, the clever Faerie policewoman. This book is really good and the writing style is clever and witty. It is also a really easy read for anyone who doesn't want to think too much.

Private by Kate Brian

Rating: Excellent! (5)

Private  by  Kate Brian

"Private" by Kate Brian is one of the best books I have read yet. I picked
When Reed Brennan first transfers schools to Easton Academy, everything is different. Coming there on a scholarship makes life that much harder. When Reed discovers the Billings Girls, she knows it's do or die. She must become a Billings Girl or it will be one long school year. But shortly after she gets to know them, she learns dark secrets she doesn't want to be part of.
"Private" by Kate Brian is one of the best books I have read yet. The saying "don't judge a book by its cover" isn't always true. I picked up this book because I liked the cover and checked it out. Once I started reading it I couldn't put it down. I was always saying one more chapter then i'll stop but that was never the case.

City Of Bones by Cassandra Clare

Rating: Excellent! (5)

City Of Bones  by  Cassandra  Clare

City of Bones is the best book I have ever read! It tells the story of Jace, a shadowhunter, and Clary, a "mundane" that can see shadowhunters. This book has many unexpected turns that makes the story interesting. The series is addictive!

Along For The Ride by Sarah Dessen

Rating: Excellent! (5)

Along For The Ride  by  Sarah Dessen

Auden never had a normal childhood. Her brother Hollis had always been more of a child, even though he is the older one. Her parents expected her to act mature and she did, even through her parents divorce. When Hollis sends Auden a frame with the caption "The Best of Times"? on it, Auden decides that instead of spending the summer with her mom just studying for college, she will go to her dad's house. There she meets Eli who can't sleep at night. They start spending their nights together because ever since the divorce Auden hasn't slept at night either. Eli leads her on a "quest"? to do all the things she never did as a child. Between the "quest"? and working at her stepmother's boutique with three girls Auden would have never hung out with before, this summer will change Auden.
I thought this was a great book and would definitely recommend it.
