    My FAVORITE books are the Harry Potter series. They are full of action and adventure. I am reading Prisoner of Azkaban, so nobody tell me what happens!

    My favorite book is The Emerald Atlas. It’s about three kids, Kate, Michael, and Emma.
    They go to a town called Cambridge Falls after being kicked out of an orphanage. They accidentally travel into the past, and that kicks off a series of adventures that lead to the most dangerous one of all.

    What if one day you download a CD for AOL and all of a sudden a social networking site comes up. But it can’t really be because its 1992 and the site wasn’t invented yet.
    As once close friends Emma and Josh discover what will happen to each other and their friends in the future things seem to split even more apart for their friendship. Josh becomes matched with the hottest most out-of-his-league girl while Emma is stuck with random crappy guys she doesn’t like. As Emma tries to change everything she learns that every little thing you do can send ripples into your future and change, well everything.
    Can the once best friends simply just “unfriend” each other?
    :/ a little over 100 but oh well…still one of my favorite books; The Future of Us by Jay Asher.

    My favorite book was The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 2. The book was great in my opinion. It was cool and it has a lot of twists in the story line. It had a lot of romance in it and had a little bit of action in it. Aaah, vampires and werewolves! I just love all of it!

    I love the Hunger Games series. The structure of the book is wonderfully mastered. Suzanne Collins is the only author I know who can beautifully capture the sad parts, the romantic parts, the serious parts, and everything in between. Once you start you never want to stop. Nothing is impossible. You will be hanging on your feet, and sometimes yelling at your book because of what happened, or a twist in the story. The heartbreak will have you crying. The romance will make you want to be Katniss or Peeta. You will read this series from first to last and over again and backwards. No matter how many times you read it, ti will always manage to keep you hanging on your feet.

    The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins- Katniss steps in to take her sister’s place in the Hunger Games- a fight to the death on live TV. Katniss and a boy Peeta Mellark must fight to win eternal fame and glory. I like this book because of the twists. If you like Harry Potter, you’ll love the Hunger Games

    Have you ever read Unwind by Neal Shusterman? It tells the tale of three children who live in a society in which a common practice to get rid of troublesome children is “unwinding” or “living in a divided state”.
    This is a masterpiece! Shusterman possesses the rare ability to fully develop plotlines and characters without over or under-doing it, which is why it is such a fantastic novel.
    There is literally a plot twist on every page, and this novel will have you hanging on the edge of your seat until the very end.
    Unwind is perfect for mature readers interested in dystopian societies. It is just about, if not more, engaging than Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and as wonderfully written and developed as Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games.

    I have a lot of “favorite” books, such as the twilight saga and the hunger games trilogy. Although all of those books are amazing, I’d have to say Cinder by Marissa Meyer is also up there. Cinder is a futuristic take on Cinderella; it’s not just like every other Cinderella story. I mean what other stories have androids, the plague, and aliens. Not only that but it takes place in New Beijing. Don’t just take my word for it. Go read it yourself! I promise you that once you start reading you will never want to put it down.

    My favorite book is The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. It is very good. I like how Katniss isn’t afraid to take her sister’s place is the Games. Katniss is my favorite character and I wish I was more like her. She is very brave. I also like Peeta, because he is shy, yet very strong. I read the first book in Less than 24 Hours! I couldn’t stop reading!

    My favorite book is Flipped. The book is about Juliana who falls in-love (or so she thinks) with a boy named Bryce. She has a crush on him for years, and eventually the situation “flips”, with Juliana no longer liking Bryce, but Bryce liking her! The book is both romance and comedy.

    My favorite book is definitely Love,Ruby Lavender by Deborah Wiles. It’s a really lovely book about a young girl named Ruby Lavender who’s grandmother goes to Hawaii to visit her son, his wife and their new baby girl. The grandmother’s name is Miss Eula, and Ruby takes the news of her leaving pretty hard. Throughout the story Ruby faces many other challenges, minor and major. One of her biggest challenges is the rivalry between she and Melba Jane. What I think is that since Melba Jane’s father died in a car accident with Ruby’s grandfather, Melba almost blames Ruby for her father’s death. Overall the story is very heart warming as Ruby finds friends in unexpected places and learns that blue paint is rather hard to get off. If you ever read this book I know, know, know you’ll LOVE it!>>

    Of course, my favorite book is probably The Help. It’s an adult book but it was soooo good. It’s about these two maids and a white woman in 1963 Mississipi, and the woman decides to write a book of interviews with some black maids to get their point of view. They’re breaking the law, but they make a difference in the end.

    My favorite book is the Hunger Games. I love the scenarios that make me not want to put the book down. The staged love, the adrenaline, it’s all perfect. I think it’s a great book for tweens and teens as myself. It teaches that life doesn’t always end up working out perfectly, or exactly the way you want it to. It also teaches never to give up; just as Katniss was extremely angry her trainer when he wouldn’t send her water. She realized that the reason he wouldn’t, was only because the water was only a few minutes away.

    My favorite book is The Invention of Hugo Cabret. It features lots of action, adventure, suspense, and the best part is that the whole book, is a mystery. You’ll never want to put this book down. This story is about a 12 year-old orphan boy named Hugo who lives in the walls of a Paris train station. He has to keep the clocks running and make sure no one catches him. When he meets a girl named Isabelle, they go on an adventure to figure out the mystery of the automaton that belonged to Hugo’s father that passed away.

    My favorite book would have to be the Harry Potter series. It is so fantastic that you wont care how many pages are in it. This story is about a young boy named Harry that lives with his wicked aunt,uncle,and cousin that treat him with disrespect.Harry lives with them because when he was little, his parents died from an evil person named Voldemort. Voldemort actually wanted Harry but got his parents instead because when Voldemort tried to touch him Harry would shock him so Voldemort left him with a scar. Voldemort wanted him because he has a special power that he didnt know about until he was older. He was a very powerful wizard. He was founded by a big guy named Hagrid that took him to a witchcrafting school called Hogwarts. The professors name was Dumbledore. There were many students but the ones that became his best friends were a girl named Hermione and a boy named Ron. Harry faces many obstacles along the way with his two best friends but has gotten through it together. At the end, Harry destroys Voldemort. I know you will enjoy these books as much as I do because it was both magical and amazing.

    The most amazing book,in my opinion, is the Tale of Desperaux. It was a story of a different, yet courageous mouse who wanted more than what his lifestyle had to offer.I think that this book is explaing to us is to never be the same as others when you were born to stand out! Although the cover may not look like a good book, that was a way to capture you as you were reading. I read the ENTIRE BOOK in half and hour!! This book is amazing!!! I love Kate Dicamillo for writing this book!!!Peace out!!!
