    They all look pretty cool. I am reading the 39 Clues series and I love it. I also love Rick Riordan books, even though I haven’t started the Heroes of Olympus series. I also love the Diary of a Wimpy kid series. As for ‘Wonderstruck’ I think it would be cool to try something new! I LOVE READING.

    all books tells differant stories every one knows that but have you ever thuoght about using the stories you read to come up with you own story and then you could inspire other kids to do the same i do and it is awesome and my favorite type of genera is mystery it is awe some that you can find theatrical lifelike things in the different books you read.
