Artemis Fowl By Eoin Colfer

Artemis Fowl is a 12 year old criminal mastermind. He has pulled of more successful heists than most career criminals. He has a loyal body guard, Butler, who is his best friend and confidant. He has discovered the existence of fairies, and is out to get their gold. Fowl kidnaps a fairy, and takes her captive. While bargaining with the fairies he also must care for his delusional mother. Artemis's father is missing and his mother is sick and delusional with worry. Will he be able to get his gold and save his mother? Has he finally bitten off more than he can chew?

Recommendations: This is a very well written book. It is fantasy/sci-fi, but a very well mixed concoction. Eoin Colfer is another one of my favorite authors who has also written a book called, "The Supernaturalist". I would recommend this to any young adult reader who enjoys watching their world questioned. This book brings up questions about humans, and "make believe" creatures. Enjoy!

Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

In a distopian land that was once North America, there are 12 districts and the Capitol. Once a year the Capitol hosts the "Hunger Games". Katniss Everdeen lives in District 12, and is 16 years old. Her younger sister, Primrose Everdeen, is 12 and in the reaping for the first time. Her name is only entered once, and Katniss's is entered 20 times. Against the odds, Prim's name is chosen. Suddenly, Katniss is faced with an impossible decision. Should she volunteer? Risk it all for the sake of her sister? In the arena only one will come out alive.

Recommendations: Very good book, 12 and up I would say. It is violent, and a little complicated, but not too confusing. It has an underlying love story, but I still like it and I don't like love stories. Very good book, please enjoy!

The Pact By Jodi Picoult

The Hartes and the Golds have been next door neighbors since their children (Chris and Emily) were babies. No one is surprised when they become boyfriend-girlfriend. Everyone is surprised though when a double suicide goes wrong, leaving Emily dead. Trying to comprehend what lead to this, the Pact brings you through the Hartes and Golds whole relationship.

Recommendations: This is a very hard book to read. There were times where my friend (Lil Bat), who was reading this book with me, and I had to put the book down. Many tears were shed, and it was extraordinarily gripping book. I would recommend this to fourteen and up. It does have explicit scenes, and addresses lots of hard topics. It is a great book, but a very challenging read. 

As always; Enjoy but please do not copy any of my work and claim it as your own! Thank you!

Lone Wolf by Jodi Picoult

Jodi Picoult is one of my favorite authors, so you will probably see lots of her books on here.

Luke Warren is a wolf behavioral specialist. He is so into his job that he spent a period of time with a wild wolf pack. He lives with his daughter, Carra, in Canada. Carra is seventeen and has an older brother, Edward, who is seventeen and has lived in Thailand for the past five years after a major argument with his father. Carra's parents were divorced shortly afterward, and Carra has blamed Edward ever since.
Then, something no one expected happens. Luke and Carra are in a major accident that leaves Carra only a little bruised, but Luke is gravely wounded. Edward is called home and Carra is not pleased. She says that any decisions should be made by her about their father's care, but she is underage. How will this family come out in the end? Can miracles happen?

Recommendations: This is an adult book, but is also very extraordinary. Picoult grabs onto your attention, and doesn't let go until the last word. Very good character development throughout the entire book, you learn more the more you read. In entirely Picoult fashion surprises, both unwanted and wanted, lurk around every page turn. I would recommend this book to anyone thirteen and up. Unlike some books where I would recommend this for older people so that there is more enjoyment, this book does have lots of hard places to read, and a couple explicit scenes. Very good book, but a hard read.

Eragon By; Christopher Paolni

Eragon is a farm boy trying to help his family make a living on the rough Carvahall land. While hunting in the Spine he finds a rock. He tries selling the rock for money, but since it's from the dreaded Spine it doesn't work. Garrow (his uncle) is not pleased when he brings back meat bought by a neighbor out of charity. Later that night something extraordinary happens, the stone hatches.
Now that enemies keep appearing everywhere, Eragon must learn more about this newfound friend, and the power and responsibility that comes with it. What will he do? How will he learn? Who will teach him? Read this amazing book to find.

Recommendations: This is a fantasy story that some people say is a rip-off of Star Wars, however it is still a very good book. Christopher Paolini even said before writing that it would be very similar to Star Wars. If you like Star Wars you will either love, or hate this book. This book is very good, but I would recommend being in 6th grade or older to fully appreciate and understand this book. It isn't inappropriate, but there is some places where you have to be older to appreciate it fully.
