invisibilityInvisibility by Andrea Cremer and David Levithan
YA CREMER, A.
When I got this book, I only looked at the cover and assumed it was going to be about an invisible boy falling in love with a visible girl. Then I actually started reading it… this book had me reading! Stephen is an invisible boy who is cursed by his curse-caster grandfather. Maxwell Arbus is the wicked curse-caster who is invisible as well but when he is around, it gets crazy. Elizabeth is an ordinary visible girl who can see curses but hasn’t really figured that out YET.

DJ RisingDJ Rising by Love Maia
YA MAIA, L.
This is the first book in a long time that I’ve read and truly didn’t want someone to tell me how it ends. It started a little slow, but after that it took off! After reading DJ Rising, my love of music has grown even more than before! Definitely recommend this book!

Maze RunnerThe Maze Runner by James Dashner
YA SF DASHNER, J.
This book kept me at the edge of my seat from the very first word. I kept wondering what would happen to Thomas. He is thrown into this world and no one is giving him answers. I cannot wait until the movie comes out!

Night was a sad book about Elie’s experience in the concentration camps. I would tell everyone I know to read this sad but moving story.

It was a great read. The book is good for kids just entering their teen years. It was so intense. I like David for his determination. I like this book because the author made it seem so real.

RithmatistThe Rithmatist by Brandon Sanderson
YA SANDERSON, B.
The Rithmatist is an amazing book about a non-rithmatist (Joel) discovers a crime happening in Armedius. His dream is to become a rithmatist but he is not meant to be one. Instead, he works with his rithmatist friend (Melody). This book has a great unexpected ending. This is now my favorite book.
