The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Could you imagine a Twilight theme park? No? Me either. Well, there is a Harry Potter theme park coming out quite soon. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter opens in spring of 2010, and it will be located at Universal’s Islands of Adventure theme park in Orlando, Florida. At the theme park, everyone will be […]

Extras by Scott Westerfeld

My Rating: 4 stars **If you haven’t read previous books, don’t read!** This book was nothing like I expected. I thought it was going to be another book from Tally’s point of view where she goes through another surgery. But this book is from Aya Fuse’s point of view. Her world formed a few years […]

The Giver by Lois Lowry

My Rating: 4 stars I had to read The Giver in school and usually I don’t like books that I read for school, but I really liked this one. I really liked how Lois Lowry created this futuristic world, where everything seems perfect on the surface. There are no conflicts, unemployment, poverty, inequality or injustice. […]

Specials by Scott Westerfeld

My Rating: 4 stars **If you haven’t read previous books, don’t read!** Everything has changed for Tally Youngblood. She has been completely remade. Her bones are now aircraft ceramic, light but indestructible. Her muscles repair themselves. She can hear the faintest, most distant sound through her skintenna. And all her senses are supernaturally sharp. She’s […]

Pretties by Scott Westerfeld

My Rating: 4 stars **If you haven’t read previous book, don’t read!** After Tally Youngblood’s encounter with the Smokies, she is sent back to New Pretty Town and finally receives her surgery. For a few weeks, she has been living the life, looking pretty and forgetting her days as an Ugly. Then, she receives a […]

The Lovely Bones Movie

My Rating: 5 stars I knew this movie was going to be good before I even read the book, but reading the book made me appreciate it more. The Lovely Bones movie was better than I thought it would be. The director, Peter Jackson brought the story to life wonderfully. I really liked the main […]

Fade by Lisa McMann

My Rating: 4 stars Janie once again is struggling with her ability to see others’ dreams. She learned from Mrs. Stubin’s old notebook what is going to happen to her once she gets older and experiences more dreams. Janie and Cabel are both working for a secret investigation company, and both receive a mission to […]

The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold

My Rating: 5 stars Okay, so I’m going to contradict myself at least a million times while writing this, so just bear with me. I have to say, this is one of the strangest books I have ever read. Just the whole way it was written was totally different and original. But at the same […]

Harry Potter vs. Twilight

Neither can live while the other survives. See ya, Edward. For at least a year, or maybe even more, there has a been huge controversy over the one simple question: Harry Potter or Twilight? For me, I’m totally Team Potter, but I’m sure a lot of other people would rather be dreaming about the mesmerizing, […]

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

My Rating: 5 stars I’m not going to lie, but I absolutely loved this book! The whole series is great actually. But this was a really good way to start it all off. So this takes place in the future, not the type of future you’re thinking about: the stereotypical flying cars, etc. Although this […]
