The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
The Hunger Games is a story that is packed with adventure and excitement. I couldn’t even put the book down. It’s also frightening and a loving book. I think that whoever picks up this book will truly love it and won’t want to put it down.

The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan
This book tells the story of Sadie and Carter Kane, siblings who, after their mother’s death, were separated. Now, on Christmas Day, one of two days they can meet, they witness their father’s capture by Set, and Egyptian God. This sets off a journey to find out who they really are and to learn to master their powers, all while trying to save their dad. I really liked this book because it combines Egyptian mythology with adventure and excitement. I recommend this book for anyone interested in mythology.

ttyl by Lauren Myracle
ttyl is a book that teen girls would like. It has some problems that girls might understand. It was in a cool format like AIM. If I was to rate this book, I would rate it 5 stars. It’s got a lot of things happening and it makes you feel like you’re really IMing someone.

Jinx by Meg Cabot
I thought this was a really good book for people who enjoy magic, and somewhat romance novels. A girl nicknamed Jinx, for her bad luck, moved in with her aunt and uncle to escape a stalker. Her cousin Tory is determined to ruin Jinx’s life only because Jinx has magical powers and Tory doesn’t. All I’m going to say is, did Jinx really escape horror by coming to New York, or did she walk right into it?

The Sword Thief by Peter Larangis (The 39 Clues, book 3)
The third 39 Clues book was a thrilling, action-packed clue-hunting book. I’d recommend this series to anyone who loves quick books with a ton of suspense.
