Miki Falls 2: Summer

Miki Falls 2: SummerSince Miki is now in on what Hiro’s BIG secret is, she helps him out with his work. Then she realizes he is spying on her friend, Yumi. She tries to keep it a secret, and she does, but it becomes a challenge throughout the book. It’s now Hiro’s birthday and usually she is supposed to call him before she comes over, but then his present wouldn’t be a surprise. So she goes and knocks on his door, but when Hiro opens the door he steps out with a girl. Will this girl tear Miki and Hiro apart?

This book is great, but I suggest you read Miki Falls 1: Spring first, otherwise this one will be very confusing. I love this book cause it’s a short little read. I am going to read the other two books in this series, Miki Falls Autumn and Winter.  [pixiestix123]

The Cupid War

The Cupid WarRicky Fallon has died by accidental suicide. He slipped off a bridge – at first he was going to jump, but he changed his mind and turned to get off, then slipped on his phone. When he died he thought he was going to heaven, but he met this angelic-like person and, well, the thing he said was funny but messed up. Anyways, Fallon has to repay his debt by becoming a Cupid, and he meets some people along the way and this mortal girl (human but of course you knew that) who can hear him and sense him. He finds out about these things called Suicides, and he has to stop them but can’t do it alone.

My favorite part was when he walked into the girls’ shower room and got caught by his friend. This book was interesting, the characters were funny, and the language was nothing I haven’t heard before, but you might not want any younger siblings looking into some parts. Awesome book, I loved it.  [beviediva]

Miki Falls 1: Spring

Miki Falls 1: SpringThis is about a girl, Miki, who sees a new kid, Hiro, come into town. She knows he is hiding a deep dark secret. Miki and her friend try to be nice but he shuts everyone out. One day Hiro walks her home, but it starts raining so they go to his house instead. While Miki is changing, the basement door creaks open, she peeks down the stairs and Hiro closes the door. She then spends all her free time stalking him. Finally Miki gets to learn his secret.

This book is the best graphic novel I have read so far. Miki is my favorite character because she is very determined. I will definitely read Miki Falls: Summer, Autumn, and Winter.  [pixiestix123]

Access Denied

Access DeniedIf you have ever been embarrassed or liked someone that doesn’t like you back, this is the perfect story to read. Erin is a girl who has a very protective mother and father. To Erin she thinks her parents treat her like a baby – until she breaks one of her parents’ rules and goes to a party. Worst night of her life. Erin gets picked on at times but gets advice from one of her favorite teachers.

My favorite part of the story is the resolution. I like it when stories have happy endings. Erin and the boy of her dreams are finally together. They had to go through some pretty tough times to realize how much they really liked each other.  [Mr. Top_Of_The_Line21]

Daughter of Xanadu

Daughter of XanaduThink Mulan.  Emmajin, granddaughter of the great Genghis Khan, can out-fight her brothers.  More than anything she wants to join the army, but it’s forbidden for women.  The Khan gives her a more important assignment – to gather information from Marco Polo, a merchant from Italy, so the Mongols can learn what they need to know to conquer Europe.  But Marco Polo is a handsome sweet talker, and things get steamy!  Can Emmajin betray the man she’s falling in love with?  Can she betray her Khan?

I read this book because the Mongols were a fierce war machine, and I wanted lots of action.  Yes, there’s blood and body parts … but I didn’t expect Emmajin to spend so much time wondering how it would feel to stroke her fingers across Marco’s hairy chest.  Bleuch, too much for me, you might like it if you’re into that sort of thing.  At least the war scene near the end in was intense.  Emmajin is vicious!  [Free Pizza]

Paradise

ParadiseThis story is about a girl named Paisley Tilery who lives in Texas. Paisley has had a dream ever since she was a little girl – to go to Texapoolaza, where you perform your talent in front of a big audience. Paisley is a drummer in a band. Mrs. Tilery is very protective over Paisley and her sister Lacey. All their mom wants for them is to have the best education. They don’t think that. Both Lacey and Paisley have to hide what they want to do because they’re afraid their mom won’t approve. Already Paisley has to hide to her mom that she’s a drummer. Lacey has to hide that she wants to go to cosmetology school. Her mom wants her to be a singer. Paisley’s life changes when they get a new lead singer for the band.

My favorite character from the story is the dad. He was very understanding even though he knew about Paisley and the band. Mr. Tilery would cover for Paisley whenever she was late coming home from her band practicing. Mrs. Tilery was the only person who didn’t know about Paisley being a drum player. Mr. Tilery was the type of person who would let his daughters tell the truth to their mother. That’s what Paisley and Lacey had to do.  [Unicorn123]

Just Listen

Annabel Greene is living the life! She’s a model, has tons of friends .. and that’s almost one hundred per cent false. She has an older sister named Whitney, who has a horrible eating disorder. Annabel’s  other sister, Kristen, left for work. She is left alone to deal with her sister. She has no one to talk to – until she meets Owen. He helps Annabel out with all of her problems and her lies. He helps her to speak out and tell the truth to her mom about how she hates modeling. The only one standing in her way is her ex-best friend, Sophie.

This is a pretty good book. It just took me a couple of tries to get it started. After I did, it got so interesting. The author blends in Annabel’s stress, anger, love, hate, and loneliness into a very interesting story.  [Mo_143]

Notes from a Totally Lame Vampire: Because the Undead Have Feelings Too!

Notes From a Totally Lame Vampire: Because the Undead Have Feelings Too!Nigel is a vampire celebrating his 100th birthday.  He has fallen in love with a human at school named Chloe. He does everything to make her fall in love with him.  My favorite character is Nigel because he works really hard to make Chloe like him. Also, Nigel is trying to figure out who keeps killing all the people and then blaming his parents.  [Pink Elephant]

High School Debut 1

This story is about a girl trying to find love. She comes to school one day and notices that not a single boy notices her. So she starts to think about what’s wrong and what she could do to change. She notices this boy that looks like a popular guy who knows a lot of other boys. So she goes up to him to ask him if he could be her coach. He looks at her and says no way, he can’t stand girls. Plus lots of people would come to her and say he makes girls cry.

My favorite character is Haruna. She’s sporty and girly at the same time. She dresses pretty and wears pretty shoes to match. At the same time she plays sports. She plays baseball and enjoys it a lot. She also sets out her free time to look at magazines so she can know more about boys and what she needs to do to improve.  [Unicorn123]

Breaking Dawn

breakingdawnBella (a mortal) and Edward (a vampire) get married. For their honeymoon, they go to an island. Bella gets pregnant, but has a hard time surviving with a vampire/human baby inside of her. Will she live?

My favorite scene was when Edward and Bella got married. My favorite character was Edward because he protects Bella in the book. It made me laugh when Bella thought some of the names for the baby were lame. I think readers who love vampire romance would love this book!  [the leo lover 4]

Beautiful Creatures

Beautiful CreaturesThis story is mainly about Lena who just moved to Gaitlin. She is a caster (like a witch, but she thinks it’s a stereotype). She and Ethan are trying to figure out why they have a “special” bond. I LOVED THIS BOOK!  The story is addicting and will keep you glued to each page. I loved how the author made Lena so different, like an individual. The book mostly applies to girls who aren’t afraid to be themselves. It’s a perfect mix of mystery and suspense and drama. [Mo_143]

Best Friends for Never

bestfriendsforneverMassie and Claire make a bet on wearing clothes, so Massie can’t shop for a month, and Claire can’t wear the same outfit over again for a month. The bet destroys more than what they thought it would. Since Massie’s popularity level is down, she decides to hold a boy-girl Halloween party. This party and its costumes end up changing the girls’ lives in a not-so-good way.

I absolutely loved it! This second Clique book is way better than the first one. The dramatic events kept my eyes locked on the paper all the time! I’ve heard that The Clique books keep getting better and better as they go on, so I can’t imagine how there is any way for them to get even better.  [Meow Person]

Pride and Prejudice

Pride and PrejudiceFirst of all, if you absolutely love to listen to gossip and people with old, proper British accents, then this is the book for you. A woman stands alone in society as many men come into her life. Some propose to become friends, others propose marriage. Her mother does everything in her power to get her to marry a wealthy, suitable young man. And that’s when a man comes into her life, but he’s not just any man. She hates him … but does she? He’s proud. And she’s prejudice. Find out in Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.

I loved this book. It is my all-time favorite by far. Of course, if you love all that mushy stuff and gossip like me, and have respect for old British literature, then you would absolutely adore this book. I have checked it out and read it so many times that eventually, my mother bought me the book.  [berryice2345]

Kristen

KristenKristen Gregory is part of the Pretty Committee, and while the rest of the group is all around the world and who knows where,  she’s stuck in Westchester, NY.  She has a job tutor-sitter, Ripple Baxter, who has a hawtie surfer bro.  I guess small towns have their perks!  LOL.  A Clique novel.

AMAZING!! It has boys, snotty older girls, all-out skaters, pranks, secret clubs, costumes, mamma drama. I loved it!  [PARIS]

Re-Gifters

regiftersA girl falls in love with a guy, but the guy didn’t even know that she existed. So she gave him a gift and then he gave it to someone else that he liked.  I thought it was so great that I read it two times. Why would some boy give a gift to a girl that he likes when some other girl gave it to him? This part made me laugh. It was a shock! Ha! Ha! Ha!   [choppy]

There is a boy who is not very popular at all, and a lot of people pick on him. The girl goes to a school dance and dances with a masked man. The dance is magical! Who is the masked man?

I really loved this book. It is  an easy read and it is cute. I think it is a book for girls. I do not suggest that boys read it, unless you’re into the romantic, sappy books.  [Hot Koolaid]
