Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher is not only an interesting take on a common and upsetting topic, but it is a different type of story altogether. I have never read a book addressing the topic of suicide, and although I didn’t really enjoy this book, I was curious as to what it had to […]

After by Francine Prose

This isn’t a book you would find on  display at your local bookstore. In fact, it might not be there at all. But it should be. This book is so interesting and easy to read.  I don’t mean that it’s written at a fourth grade level either. I mean that this book is easy to […]

Marked by P. C. and Kristin Cast

I found this book to be very interesting and thought that the story was great! There were a lot of different conflicts and questions presented within the novel, not all of which were resolved/answered, so it definitely made room for more books in the series. This book presents a new look at the modern vampire, […]

Percy Jackson and The Olympians

This series is spectacular. I first read this series when I was in fifth or sixth grade and I am re-reading it now as a junior. The books are easy to understand for younger kids, but still highly entertaining for high school students. Percy Jackson is a sarcastic and hilarious boy who grows up only […]

Although this wasn’t my favorite book in the Hunger Games trilogy, it was a very worthwhile read with plenty of surprises and great details. First of all, sending the victors back into the game was a great idea because it showed […]
