Title: Evernight
Author: Claudia Gray

Sixteen-year-old Bianca, a new girl at the sinister Evernight boarding school, finds herself drawn to another outsider, Lucas, but dark forces threaten to tear them apart and destroy Bianca's entire world. I found the relationship between Bianca and Lucus interesting. I could just imagine the ways in which they were being pulled apart, yet they couldn't resist the magnetic pull they felt. I expected it to be just another vampire book, but I was pleasantly surprised. I will definitely read the next book in this series.

If I Stay

Title: If I Stay
Author: Gayle Forman

Two other reviews were done on this book however none of them really went into detail. If your totally a romantic, think punk rock is cool to read about, are intrested in musical differant relationship and hard choices maybe this book is for you. I found it a horribaly boring book - I didn't bother even reading it all. I was disgusted with it, read the last page and thought "What's the point?" I would not recommend it at all!!! I see there are a lot of hold's on it. I think it's pointless. I would not get it and waste my time.

I haven't read many books worth reviewing, lately. I was at the library, trying to find something worth while, and I pulled out 'Brightly Woven' from the new books shelf. I read the summary, opened it, appraised it, and ultimately checked it out. It seemed to fit my favorite genre, fantasy/adventure, with dabbles of magic. A summary: Sydelle lives in a desert village with a drought. They haven't had rain in years! When rain finally comes, a wizard (Wayland North) shows up with a bunch of soldiers following him. He said he's come to search for more evidence about the king's murder. Murder? Sydelle thought he had died from an illness. But her father, the village elder, doesn't mind about that much. The stranger brought a long awaited rain! He says he will give North anything he asks for. And he chose Sydelle.

I am a BIG fan of the Percy Jackson series, also by Mr. Riordan, and when I found out he had written another series, this time about Ancient Egypt, well- you can fill in my over-excitement on your own. Anyways, I opened this book wondering if he would top his old series and I find the table of contents. Glancing down the list, I noticed titles like "We Run from Four Guys in Skirts" and "I Face the Killer Turkey" I knew that I was in for yet another good book. I cuddled up in a chair, and read until four o' clock in the morning- LITERALLY! This book was so good

From the cover, we thought that 11 Birthdays would go through each birthday of Amanda’s life but instead she had her 11th birthday over and over again! We liked the mysterious character, Angelina, who appeared at the beginning and at the end of the book. Also, the apple seed from one of the birthdays was tied to the apple orchard mentioned in the museum. The author wrote well and planned well for this book! She was detailed and the book was mysterious, magical, and funny. We thought maybe it could be put in the fantasy genre. It is different from other books you have read. We wanted to keep reading because we wanted to see what would change and what would remain the same each day. We were interested and we wanted to find out what was in the journal. This book was like Harry Potter because we couldn’t put it down! We can’t wait to read the next book by this author called, Finally.
