The pretty little liars books are all about betrayal, secrets, and four teenage girls. Emily, Aria, Spencer, and Hanna all lost their best friend in seventh grade when she went missing the night of their sleepover and now three years later they’re trying to forget all of the horrible things Ali made them do and say. Hanna is having a bulimic problem, Emily doesn’t know who or what she likes, Aria’s father is cheating on her mother and only Aria knows, and Spencer keeps stealing from her sister. The problem is that only A knows and she/he can and will tell if they don’t do what A says.
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins was the last of The Hunger Games series and was widely anticipated. I am not alone in thinking that this book was a severe disappointment to all of the fans. The novel clearly lacked the drama that gave the first two books such spark. It was so jam packed with action that it was boring. The ending was particualarly unsatisfying in the fact that Katniss’ romantic decision did not please either party (Gale or Peeta-which are you?)Not to mention the terribly depressing note on which the book was left following Prim’s death…To conclude: an unsatisfying cap off to the specaular Hunger Games series.
I went on vacation this week and was in a long three hour car ride started and finished the book Leviathan. First of all who thinks Alex is a stick in the mud? Right when Deryn would say something interesting like barking spiders, Prince Alex (In an Austrian-Hungarian accent in perfect royal English but trying not to be perfect English, English) would say yeah ok.
Ok plot line, Prince Alex’s or as I like to call him Prince Buzz-Kill’s parents where killed. If that doesn’t mean much to you his dad was the Archduke Franz Ferdinand of the Austrian-Hungarian empire. Any-who Prince Buzz-Kill is whisked to safety by some friends.
Meanwhile in London there is a girl who wants to be a guy to join the air force. She becomes a boy with a clever disguise and joins the force. Will they ever meet? Will there be any more of a plot line, will prince buzz- kill ever stop being a Buzz-kill (I doubt it.)? Will I ever stop writing?
I just recently finished a great book called Divergent by Veronica Roth. It is a fast moving, action packed book that takes place in future Chicago. The main character, Tris, is a strong female character with personality. I recomend this book for anyone looking for an exciting book with a mix of romance. What are some your favorite books set in the future?
