The Enchanter Heir by Cinda Williams Chima

 The Enchanter Heir

Disney Hyperion 2013

I actually got this book before I realized it was the fourth. Amazingly though, I could peace together the information and understand it really well even without reading the other books. A really cool story although it did get a little confusing at the end. I can't wait to read the other books. It would be cool to find out why Emma's grandfather died and if he was murdered or not.

Stained by Cheryl Rainfield (2 reviews)

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2013

This book made me very emotional but I could also not stop reading.  It was a page turner from the very beginning and I read all 293 pages in one night.  Sarah Meadows is the main character and is the most brave person I have ever read about.  No matter how self conscious she is and no matter how low her self-esteem is, Sarah will stand up for anyone.  If Sarah were a real person, I would want her by my Side if I was being picked on.   This is the most amazing book ever, I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!

This book is very confusing in the beginning because it is in third person.  After a we chapters i got used to it.  I recommend this book to everyone 12 yrs. and up.  This book has a lot of detail and is action packed.  I love this book!

This is a great book. The way the author is able to put together a mix of Harry potter, James Bond, and Alex Rider is amazing. I can hardly wait for the rest of the series
