The Red Pyramid

The Red Pyramid The Red Pyramid is about 2 kids, Sadie and Carter Kane, who find out that they are related to 2 pharaohs. They also find out that they are hosts to gods. Sadie is hosting Isis and Carter is hosting Horus. They have to defeat an evil god named Set so they can get their father back, whom Set took.

I liked the scene where Carter and Sadie found out they were hosting gods. This is a really good book and I suggest it to anybody who like books about magic stuff.  [∏]

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]

Clockwork Angel

Clockwork AngelTessa travels to London from America in search of her older brother Nate, and with his slight addiction to alcohol it was no mystery he vanished. When her boat docks, she is greeted by “The Dark Sisters” – at least, that’s what Tessa calls them. Ms. Dark and Ms. Black lure her in with a promise that Nate sent them to get her. They lied. The Dark Sisters imprisoned Nate and are using Tessa and her ‘gift’ as they call it to please a notorious man called “The Magister.” When a mysterious boy named Will enters her life, Tessa must learn to get along with him, control her newfound gift, and find her brother.

This book takes place in the 16th century and is a prequel to The Mortal Instruments series. I was immediately taken in when Will’s character entered the story. His constant use of sarcasm and witty personality keep the book alive with humor. You should give this book a look.  [NeonREADer101]

Ghostopolis

GhostopolisIf you liked Cardboard you’ll love Ghostopolis. It’s about a boy named Mark who has an incurable disease, though instead of focusing on the deadly future ahead of him, he wants to know more about the past – specifically his grandfather whose life was shut.  Mark was my favorite character since he had the coolest super powers, which tie into the end of the story.  [TinkerTime13]

Scarlett Dedd

Scarlett DeddScarlett Dedd is actually DEAD. She accidentally killed herself to escape her outdoor ed trip. But, she needs to find a way to change her afterlife.    My favorite parts are when they show Scarlett’s blogposts. The writer actually put the blogposts online. The link is only in the book!  [mm]

The Kingdom Keepers

At least, they seem like dreams at first. They soon realize that their adventures at night are all but fake. With the help of a few friends and an old guy named Wayne, can they save the parks from the evil Overtakers?

I read the first book and was immediately obsessed with this series. There are so many twists and turns you can never see coming. This book combines adventure, drama, and humor into something amazing. This is a must-read!  [KKreader101]

Dark Eden

Dark EdenWill Besting is a normal teenage boy in high school, sort of. He has an extreme fear. He and 7 other kids his age are summoned to a place called Fort Eden. So what will happen to Will and all of his friends in a combination of fear, love and mysteries at Fort Eden?

I love the character Marissa, one of the 3 girls at Fort Eden. She is outgoing, smart, and may have a secret admirer that might not be so secret. I don’t want to say too much though!  [SUPER-NUGGET-PIE:-)]

Teeth: Vampires Tales

Teeth: Vampire TalesThe book can get a little confusing but it can get pretty good.  Then the next tale will come and you will wish the first one never ended!  I liked the first tale because the girl is a person who died and then came back from the afterlife and brought a spirit with her named Jake.  It was really funny when she covered herself in mud.  [falcon14]

Blue Bloods

Blue BloodsThere are three kinds of people: Humans, Blue Bloods (a.k.a. vampires), and Silver Bloods (a.k.a. evil vampires). Schuyler Van Alen, Bliss Llwellyn, and Mimi Force are all new Blue Bloods. They just found out at the age of fifteen. They are shocked, but quickly get used to their new life. They soon hear about the deaths of other Blue Bloods. That can’t be possible, right? After all, Blue Bloods can’t be killed! The head of the Blue Bloods Committee is hiding something. Are the vicious Silver Bloods back? They’re the only ones who can fully kill Blue Bloods! It’s now up to Schuyler, Bliss, and Mimi to find out!

I really, really loved this book. In fact, I love the whole series! It drew me right in when I started to read. It’s not like any other vampire book. It’s very different, which is why you should read it!  [dizidiv]

She travels to Venice, Italy with her human friend, who is also her guide. Her grandmother was killed, so Schuyler tries to find her grandfather. There is a twist! She sees a lady who looks like her mother. She finds out the truth about everything at the ball.  It was a very interesting story. If you like fantasy, suspense and romance, then this is the book for you.  [Angelcutie25]

City of Bones

On this journey she finds out that she loves Jace and Jace loves her. They will do everything in their power to keep it that way.

I absolutely loved this book!  Once I picked it up, I couldn’t put it down.  I would recommend this book to everyone!  It has all sorts of things like action, drama, romance, and a little bit of violence.  If you do read it, the next ones in the series are City of Ashes, City of Glass, and City of Fallen Angels.  Book 1 of The Mortal Instruments.  [KATNISS 21]

Torn

TornJonah and Kathryn are stuck in 1611. When they lose contact with JB, they’re stuck in 1611 with NO help!  Jonah has to act as Henry Hudson. I thought it was AWESOME!  It was the best out of the Missing series. I really like how the author creates A LOT of suspense and cliff hangers! I can’t wait until the next book!!  Book 4 of the Missing series.  [mimo123d]

The Doll in the Garden: A Ghost Story

The Doll in the Garden: A Ghost StoryAshley and her mother have just moved to a new property after her father died, even though Monkton Mill technically belongs to their elderly neighbor, Miss Cooper, who hates cats. While playing outside, Ash and Kristi discover a garden. Throughout the story, while exploring the garden, they find a white cat and a mysterious doll. Kristi tells her a very scary story. Ashley now believes that the garden is haunted.

I really enjoyed this book. I recommend it to anyone who likes ghost or suspense stories. My favorite character was Ashley because she did the same things I would have done during most of the situations.  [X]

The Wizard Heir

The Wizard HeirSeph always got expelled from the schools he attended because of “accidents.” His caretaker sends him to Havens, a school for troubled kids. Seph soon finds out that it’s a cult. He must decide whether to join.  I really didn’t really like it. It wasn’t interesting to me until the very end of the story.  [Yahoo!!]

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]

The Poisoned House

The Poisoned HouseYou won’t get scolded. You won’t get a beating. Death seems like a reasonable choice in Greaver Hall. A lot of it has been going on there. Fourteen-year-old Abi suffers a day-to-day basis of work and boredom. The housekeeper, Mrs. Lillian Cotton, is strict and uptight, so why not have a little fun? Maybe trick her into thinking her dead sister’s ghost is haunting her. But when the prank goes too far, a different spirit visits the house – one with no good intention.

This book was amazing, great, spectacular! I loved it so much, and the ending, oh the ending! It was shocking, a major twist. Like a giant crescendo in a great musical piece, it ended with a big bang. I highly recommend this book. The writing style and words make it seem like the reader is in the late 1800s. I loved it, so should you!

Bloodline

BloodlineWill Shaw goes to fight in WWI only to find out that his commanding officer is a vampire. After returning home, he finds out that his captain is going out with his sister. My favorite part of the story was when Will had vivid descriptions while in the trenches. My favorite scene was when they finally reached Castle Dracula.  I recommend this book to people who like suspense and unexpected twists at the end. If you’re squeamish and don’t like gore and violence, I do not recommend this book.  [Dark Sage 1331]

A Monster Calls

A Monster CallsConor O’Malley awakes one night (12:07 to be specific) to find a monster. You would expect him to be scared, but he isn’t. He’s only scared of the monster from his nightmare. This monster is different. It doesn’t want his life. It wants the truth, which only Conor can deliver. Conor’s mom is suffering from a deadly disease and he figures the monster has good intentions. He believes the monster is here to save his mom. But the monster is only here for one person: Conor O’Malley. Dealing with these strange recurring visits every night at 12:07, when the monster tells him strange stories, Conor deals with bullies, his dad, his mother’s health, and destruction – lots of it. Will Conor be able to bear this pressure?

At first I thought this book wasn’t that good. It confused me by not giving any background information, like where the story took place. You had to infer it, which I began to like by the third chapter. After knowing that there was a secret, the truth, I had to finish it! This book was not only a horror story, but also something to cry about. READ IT!  [rocky158]

Cryer’s Cross

Cryer's CrossFix the trash can so the dent is facing just the right way. Align the dry markers for the eraseboard in a row, ROY G BIV order of course! Straighten the curtains just right. Adjust the desks so there are six at each quadrant. This is Kendall Fletcher’s (a senior girl with OCD) morning routine. Nico, her boyfriend, always sits comfortingly next to her. Nico starts acting weird and disappears just like Tiffany Quinn. On top of all this, Kendall is stressed because soccer is canceled and she worries about not getting into her dream college. All is better when Kendall sits at Nico’s desk. She hears his sweet voice beckon,”Come to Cryer’s Pass.”

This book is filled with horror, suspense, adventure, and drama. Anyone would easily love this book. It made me bite my fingers to little nubs from all the tension. It almost made me cry at the end. Lisa McMann’s style of writing is awesome. I highly recommend that you read all of her books – especially this one!  [rocky158]
