    Zombie dog by Clare Hutton
    Miranda
    This is a great book with a great story even though it is meant for younger readers. The book is a quick and easy read but is overall a great story. This story is about friendship and family. Becky and her family have just moved to a new house across town and there are many rumors about the house next door “That it’s a house of monsters, mostly zombies”. This story is about a haunted house, a girl learning true friendship, and trust within a family.

  6. Divergent by veronica Roth
    Miranda
    This is A GREAT COMING OF AGE STORY THAT WILL REALLY TOUCH READERS HEARTS. This story follows a girl named Beatrice who must choose her way of life at the age of 16. In this version of dystopian Chicago each must choose a certain faction to live in. The factions are like different types of schools for example and they teach and strive for different things. The factions are: Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). This book leaps straight to the second insurgent. This book is an amazing read and is probably one of the best books of the year.

    Monster High
    Lisa Harrington
    Miranda
    This book may seem like it is geared for little kids since there are monster high dolls but believe me its not. These are a great series of books based on actual monsters living in the normal world. This book follows the lives of the children living in Salem. A new girl named melody has just moved in and is somehow attracted to the monster children in the community. This story is about finding the truth and accepting that the world has certain plans for everyone. Overall, this is a great book and a must read for the summer

  15. Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs
    Miranda
    This is a great story that includes very scary but very real picture. Some kids in this world are strange but they have a name and they have places to go like miss peregrines. This story follows the tale of a boy who witnessed his grandfather being murdered by monsters only he and his grandpa could see. He then embarks on a journey to a mysterious island where his worst fears may become a reality. This is a great book with a believable story line and something for everyone. This book touches on sci-fi, romance, adventure, supernatural, and horror. Overall one of the best books i have ever read.

  16. The Resisters by Eric S. Nylund
    Miranda
    this is a great book about the world after an alien invasion. In the future the world was in ww4 and aliens that never even touched the surface of the earth took over the human race in only 3 seconds. Some people have survived the mind control (the collective) and are now resisters who fight the aliens so we can have our free will and planet (whats left of it) back. Overall a great read for anyone who enjoys aliens, or post apocalyptic books.

  17. monster high 2- the ghoul next door
    Lisa Harrison
    Miranda
    This is a great second book in the series secrets unravel about the community and relationships begin that were never thought possible. Normies (humans) and monsters are beginning to know each other. This book touches on how people can change and not everyone is who they say they are.

    The Fault in Our Stars
    John Green
    Kaitlyn

    Amazing.

    So much funnier than I expected, this book was hilarious despite the topics. There was equal parts humour and tragedy but a great part of the tragedy was overshadowed for me by the humour. These kids were not normal, but I wouldn’t expect them to be, it’s better they weren’t and they were perfect for me. The wit, sarcasm and straight up intelligence was brilliant. This books is so much more than what it would seem, or be expected to be: a thought provoking book on life, death, existence and love yes, but added to that, there were conversations on the universe, philosophical points and purposes I’ve never heard of/or even thought of. Hilarious, brilliant and frankly so much like me and the conversations I have with certain people it was scary. And at the base of it all was Agustus & Hazel’s love story which couldn’t have been better planned or matched. Not just hormonal or puppy love, but real love for the person who was perfect for them.
    This book made me laugh, a lot and loud,
    It made me cry, not as much, but as expected and necessary
    and it made me think.
    I will be rereading this book again, and likely soon.

    Reason to Breathe
    Rebecca Donovan
    Kaitlyn

    Beautiful, lovely, heart warming, heart wrenching. I hated that she stood by, but understood to a point why she did it. I loved Sara and Evan. I was really sad at the end till I reread the epilogue then I understood and was in a better mood but it still really affected me. I’m glad there is a sequel as long as I understood what happened at the end of RtB. It was a great story. I loved that there was also a normal sense of romance between Evan and Emma. Loved what happened and loved their love and how he cared about her and was willing to leave. It was sooooooo Sweet and, I loved it. I know I said it already. But how he stayed her friend, and the times they almost kissed, what happened when they came back, the pink sweater comments and how he annoyed her and wouldn’t leave her alone. 🙂 A book for everyone to read. It has lots to teach about Love, innocence, courage and endurance. It also raises awareness for abuse and connects the readers artfully to the characters. We ride that wave right along with them and come out different on the other side.

    Thirteen Reasons Why
    Jay Asher
    Kaitlyn

    I love this book! It is not easy to read, but I believe it has a very important message, one that every teenager needs to be aware of. I think it is a book that every teen needs to read, as well as parents and other adults, especially those who deal with kids. It is a book that will leave a mark long after it is finished and will get you thinking. It is the kind of book that will get people to change their behaviour and become more aware of how anything and everything they do affects other people. I love this book, it is in the top 3 best books I’ve ever read and since I’ve read a LOT!!!! (like hundreds) that’s saying something.
    Lastly,
    READ THIS!!!!!!!!!

  21. Kaitlyn Berriman

    Stay
    Deb Caletti
    Kaitlyn

    Amazing, good writing, a coming of age story like all of Caletti’s books. I didn’t want to put it down. I hated the flashbacks because we know what’s coming and the mistakes being made, but they were essential to the story. It was a story of forgiveness, change, growth and learning to trust and be oneself. I liked Finn, would have liked more with him, but he wasn’t the point of the story, just a way for her to venture out and trust again. A very good book. I recommend many read it

  22. Kaitlyn Berriman

    Dream Chaser
    Angie Stanton
    Kaitlyn

    Very fun. Exactly what I expected from this author. I love Eli , he’s great and Jilli is cool even when they are fighting. Miss Ginny and her sister add some sass. Very sweet, it’s nice that he still loved her after 3 years. The story is inspirational, but with a mix of good teen romance too. Fun, a fairly light read with just enough real depth and drama to make it interesting and worthwhile.

  23. Kaitlyn Berriman

    Unraveling Isobel
    Eileen Cook
    Kaitlyn

    Cute, funny, different and spooky. I loved her schizophrenia speech and the heartening response from the other students. I liked how they got together, but by the end of the book, the relationship seemed a little fluffy without much to back it, like it had happened too fast. I think one reason it seemed that way was what Nate said to his Dad at the end and it was like ‘what?’ but what they said was almost more of an expression than serious thoughts, something to show how serious he was about intervening. It seemed much shorter than the 304 pages the description said as I read the ebook version, more in the 230-280 range. A decent read.

  24. Kaitlyn Berriman

    Sing Me to Sleep
    Angela Morrison
    Kaitlyn

    Amazing.
    Heartbreaking, Heart-wrenching, Heart-lifting.
    Nothing to change, (although I didn’t like the tone, or voice or something)
    A perfect romance, without most of the drama, for the most part. This book teaches a lesson, not about issues or things to think about, but the importance of love. It wasn’t as much a love triangle as the book description makes it out to be. She made her choice and I think it was the right one, even if it did create some issues between her and Scotty for a bit, but she was right, he was never second. I think she just needed that love and time with Derek while she had it. I think it taught her a lot, there were themes and lessons about the importance of true love, inner beauty, being who you are and confidence. The premise was perfect, the story perfect, loving, uplifting. This is one of those books that can inspire, but make sure when you read you are ready with tissues. Sad, but worth it. When I read it I was freaking those around me out with my constant grin at the love, and nearly simultaneous tears, especially at the end. I love the music references, so much I wanted to hear them. Worth it to buy or borrow, definitely to read. The love they have for each other and especially Derek is amazing. Be ready to bawl like I did, but I was so glad I read it.
    This book is nothing short of Powerful.


    And I actually found the songs. Search Amabile Youth Singers for Take Me Home, her solo and this is Beth’s Song, also on Itunes.

    So Over You
    Gwen Hayes
    Kaitlyn

    I really liked this book. It was really funny in the beginning, I loved the objectifying cats thing and her names for Foster; Lucifer, Satan, Beelzebub, I thought it was hilarious, but I also got a sense that it was a little sad because she seemed to mean them, but sometimes got a glimpse of pain and feelings for him, showing that she really didn’t. Then it got more serious towards the end, with good reason. I loved the banter and the way they acted, but then couldn’t help but like each other. I liked the story of the dates and everything that happened to her and between her and Foster before the truth started to show. It was really cute but then at the same time serious, and at the end, it had an important message and story. I’m glad they could overcome everything, especially Layney. And glad Foster, I don’t know, was the way he was, he loved her, still, and tried to do what he could and felt really guilty. I loooooved Foster’s story from when they were 7 and how that is when you see clearly, not just in the awwww inspiring moments where you can kind of see, but you can really clearly see that he loves her and has for years and even since they broke up and even though she treats him the way she does and did. I thought it was soo sweet and wonderful, but you know heartbreaking that he was so upset at the end. He really did love her, for 10 years. Which by the I LOVE THAT LINE!!!!!!! the “I Couldn’t get you out of my system for 10 years” quote and the description of his smile during his story :D, sad face, almost made me want to cry and smile at the same time, AWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW! Which is basically how the book went, AWW moments, AWWW cry moments, laughs and a little bit of seriousness. Why she turned out the way she did and why she didn’t trust him, it wasn’t just the party, but fear also, it makes sense. It’s weird though how he just took everything she dished out, although I guess he didn’t really, he teased her too, like he said, to help her justify her actions, probably because he felt guilty. A great read I really suggest it to everyone.

    Tempest
    Julie Cross
    Kaitlyn

    Great book, I can’t wait for the next one, filled with suspense, tension, excitement, I kept turning the pages and the romance was in there perfectly along with a lot of humour. It made me laugh a lot. Was almost confusing with the science of time travel, but at the same time really interesting. The intelligence and imagination required to come up with this premise is huge and I greatly respect the author because of it. Tempest kept me on the edge of my seat and really made me laugh. Reading it was really enjoyable, I did it in an afternoon, so not terribly long, but a decent length. Length never matters though when you enjoy the book, it gets read quickly no matter how many pages. The series is definitely going to be interesting and I’m so glad there is a sequel. The way the first book ended, so final, sounds like that could be it, but there is so much potential at the same time for more. Plus the way the book ended without the happily ever after seems wrong. Many times its overrated and many great books don’t, so it is in no way necessary, but unlike many stories, the characters are perfect for each other. Thus, a series is born to see out the understanding of his abilities and his relationship with Holly to the final, satisfying end.

    On a scale of one to ten this book is an eight. The story follows Daisy Giordino and her family in a town called Nightshade. Everyone in Daisy’s family is physchic, what she does not know is that there are people in her town that can do things as well.

She gets the help of Ryan and old friend and the help of her sisters and mother (who is a cop) to investigae if this is real or not.

    Dead is a State of Mind by Marlene Perez
    Tatiana
    Wow think the first one was good, this is a must read!!! Daisy and her sisters Rose and Poppy all have boyfriends and things get hot and heavy between them all. This novel is the romantic side of Nightshade with hot guys everywhere and Werewolves? A great turn of events. These novels are more geared toward teen girls for sure but I’m sure women would love this as well. Daisy is a senior this year which is a good character to relate to.

    Dead is So Last Year by Marlene Perez
    Tatiana
    This summer all the girls have a job, Daisy works at a diner, Poppy works on the beach at a snack shack, and Rose has a job working at the Nightshade University for a mysterious Dr. Franken. This summer people are seeing double of everyone. Are Dopplegangers real? read and find out!! Maybe Daisy’s father even comes into the picture after years of not being there at all. I score this novel a seven

    Dead is Just a Rumour by Marlene Perez
    Tatiana
    For the fourth installment of the Dead is series the supernatural find out that there is a group that plan aginst them called The Scrouge. This one is a really good novel there is suspisions placed on everyone , tension between Daisy and her father, Daisy and Ryan and of course there is a crime that they are all trying to solve together. This novel gets an eight out of ten, great novel.

  31. Tatiana Felsbourg

    Dead is Not An Option by Marlene Perez
    Tatiana
    The last instalment of the Dead is Series with these characters. It is Poppy and Ryan’s senior year and Daisy is very concerned about college, no letters have arrived yet. This year there has been a war going on between shifters and vamps, and with Daisy and Rose both dating werewolves and Poppy dating a vamp there is tension at home. Can the paranormal community of Nightshade finally resolve their problems and coexist together in peace. I rate this novel with an eight for the last installment of this series and is such a great end to a romantic story as well as a great mystery novel.

This first installment of the Emily Windsnap series tells about Emily trying to find her father after she finds out she is a mermaid.

    The Fault In Our Stars
    By John Green
    Hazel Grace’s life changes when a new boy named Augustus Waters joins her Cancer Kid Support Group. His charmingness won over both Hazel’s and my heart. John Green’s witty writing style makes it, one humorous book and soon to be a movie. That’s right, the book is such a success, director John Boone is making it a film as of 2014 with an excellent cast of Shailene Woodley (Hazel), Ansel Elgort (Augustus), Nat Wolff (Isaac, their friend) and Hazel’s mom, Laura Dern.
    The novel takes you through the drama of Hazel and Gus’ months spent together, filling the readers with hope for anything they may be struggling with in life and admiration towards 16 year old Hazel who is perceived as a hero through her courage while struggling with cancer and how it changed her life. It is an eye opening book to the many people with cancer; kids and adults alike. Despite the grim sounding topic, John Green enlightens the story with his humour and romance.
    The Fault In Our Stars left me amazed at the talent of John Green and I immediately went out to get more of his books (which are -no surprise- also incredible). It also made me wish I knew Augustus Waters as he seemed an interesting and sweet person.
    If you’re looking for a book to make you laugh so much people nearby will stare, a book to make you swoon over Augustus and Hazel’s love, to make you cry so the pages are stained with well spent tears or a book that you will never be able to or want to forget, The Fault In Our Stars is perfect for you.

    Warm Bodies
    Isaac Marion
    240 pages
    Warm Bodies is a wonderful read for teenagers and adults alike. But it does have some gorey, fear filled, romantic and apocalyptic themes that kids and perhaps some teenagers would find disturbing. But if you have the stomach for it, you’ll love Warm Bodies as much as I did.
    The main character of Warm Bodies, R, isn’t like the other zombies at the airport in which he lives. He has always tried to remember things about his life and be as humane as a zombie can. But he still devours peoples brains. However, one day while out hunting with his zombie pack for people, he meets Julie, who changes everything. R only wants to keep Julie safe and make her happy. But the other zombies are, despite their lack of brains, noticing something’s up. They and the boneys, which are older and rotted zombies are suspicious. The boneys who are in charge, drive the two out, many other zombies leaving with them, something stirring inside them too at the sight of R and Julie together. Julie and R travel together and have many nail biting adventures. Julie is changing R, it seems, making him. . . better. But just when they think they’ve found the solution, other things and people get in their way. Now that they could know how, will they be able to save the world of the plague ridden state it’s now in.
    Warm Bodies made me realize that some humans are monsters themselves, even if blood isn’t dripping down their chin and their skin isn’t grey. R is more humane than some of the people in this book. It has a hint of the old mantra, don’t judge a book by its cover because sure, R may look like he’s going to rip Julie and many other people’s brains out, but really he’s a kind, world changing and sensitive zombie. Julie accepts him for the way he looks because of his personality. ‘Be the change in the world’ is written all over this story, and that few young people can. R and Julie together sparks change and then the two of them eventually turn that into a bonfire. R never gives up even when Julie is gone, he knows he has to find her, and protect her. Love is very powerful as you’ll learn in this book, the love between Julie and R might just have the power to change everything.
    R is an entertaining narrator. He manages to make readers feel pity for him and cheer him on. Warm Bodies made me see life, love and zombies in a whole nother way. It does what any good book does, makes you think. It was action packed and a thrill to read. R is so funny and sweet that he could get zombies to be the new supernatural heart throb. However, it does take a little while to get into the exciting part, but once you get over the boring part, it’s filled with humor, action and suspense. It’s worth it, so read it all!

  36. Emily Windsnap and the Castle in the Mist (Emily Windsnap, #3)
    by Liz kessler
    Miranda
    The third book in this series focuses on Emily finding a ring that belongs to Neptune. Emily finds out that the ring will either turn her completely human or into a complete mermaid so she sets out on a quest to find the matching ring to break the spell, finding out some of Neptune’s darkest secrets along the way. Overall an exciting read that you will not want to put down.

  37. Emily Windsnap and the Siren’s Secret (Emily Windsnap, #4)
    by Liz Kessler
    miranda
    In this fourth book Emily,Shona, and Aron are tasked with uniting humans and merpeople. The humans are planning on destroying part of the mermaid community.

  38. The Mayflower Project (Remnants, #1)
    by Katherine Applegate
    Miranda
    This is a great book for anyone who loves sci fi, apocalypse, or just action and mystery. This book focuses on a boy named jobs and his family. Earth is going to be impacted by an asteroid that will obliterate the planet. NASA has developed a project for 80 people to board a ship that should take them to a planet light years away that they believe is livable. Everyone is loaded into hibernation chambers and put to sleep for centuries. On the flight are some strange passengers including: the presidents son, Billy Weir (who possess strange powers, A killer, and an injured army Sergeant who is pregnant. This is a great book that gets you thinking of what people might do if this happened in real life.

  39. Destination Unknown (Remnants, #2)
    by Katherine Applegate
    miranda
    In the second book of the remnants series the mayflower has landed but not everyone is living.

  40. Ruined (Ruined #1)
    by Paula Morris
    Miranda
    This is a great book especially if you are looking for a good paranormal fantasy. This book is based in New Orleans where Rebecca is stuck living with her aunt while her dad is on business. Things are tough for Rebecca, her aunt is a voodoo/physic lady. Rebecca soon learns that she fits in perfectly with some of the strange happenings there. Rebecca can see a ghost. Things are bad at her stuffy prep school though with all the snooty rich girls looking down at her. Her only true friend is the ghost, who shows her what the dead are like. This book touches on bullying, finding yourself, and love for your family even if it is tough. Overall, a fantastic book.

  41. Once in a Full Moon (Full Moon #1)
    by Ellen Schreiber
    Miranda
    This is a great book, probably my favorite of the summer. In this book a town is split between the east and west side. So when a new westsider moves in and falls in love with an eastsider who loves him things get difficult.
    but things get even more complicated when Celeste goes to see a psychic who warns her of wolves and kisses beneath the full moon. Celeste cant hold herself back though when Brandon(the westsider) saves Celeste from a pack of wolves and things start going haywire. Secrets are revealed through this fast paced book and leave you craving more. This is a must read.

    The 5th Wave, By Rick Yancey, 457 pages
    Do you believe in aliens? Forms of life on a planet other than our own? If not, The 5th wave will make you believe it’s possible, but make you hope it isn’t as the aliens, known as ‘the Others’ in the book, aren’t here to make friends. With each wave from the Others more and more people die.It’s a thrilling read that will keep you captivated through the whole book! You’ll find yourself rooting for 16 year old Cassie, one of few (if any) human survivors. She fights for survival with only her rifle and brother’s teddy bear to keep her company. Life (or lack of it) is wearing her down and just when she thinks she’s over, Evan Walker saves her and returns her to her full strength. But the Others have made everyone weary of trust and as you discover horrifying surprises about the Others, the only thing you can do is continue ripping through those pages. And as you’re introduced to more characters, you’ll fear the Others yourself and hope humanity wins.
    The ending will leave you begging for more and make you think about the ingenious book, question the universe as you know it and never think of aliens the same way again. So if you’re up for a thrill of a book (and soon to be movie), pour over The 5th Wave.
