    This is a intense, emotional, yet romantic story. The main character Sophia, was a normal college girl that was focusing, trying hard for her career, she had a really bright future in front of her. One night, she was pushed to watch a bull riding game During that game, Sophia finds out that her sight can't leave a cowboy named Luke. After the game, they somehow started chatting with each other, and had some chemistry. This encounter led to the first date, second date and so on. After those lovely dates, Sophia found out the tragically path of Luke's, he got seriously injured once. Sophia feared that it would happen again and she doesn't want to lose him, so she told him not to bull ride anymore, this became the conflict between Sophia and Luke. I really like this story because it talked about the concerns for love that will happen in real life, and also it's so romantic, very addicting. I also learnt that love never dies from that old couple that had also been in the background of the story. I recommend this book to everyone, no matter what you should give it a try! Enjoy :)

    This book is basically talking about a 12 year old boy Ishmael from Sierra Leone. Although he's not even a teenager yet, but he as forced to fight a war, held guns and addicted to cocaine and marijuana. The kids are brainwashed that if they join the army, they will revenge for their slaughtered family from war. Ishmael became something he feared the most, a killing machine. I think this story makes me feel really sad, because by looking at the stories of Ishmael, what he saw in the war, and what he had to go through, I feel really bad for him, why does a little boy at this age need to go through this while they didn't even know what they're doing. But after years of wars, Ishmael fell in love with a nurse while he was injured in a conflict, Esther. She opened up a new window for his life. He was invited to give a speech in New York city, and started a new chapter of his life. This book is full of cruelty, but it made me understand that how thankful I should be.

    This book is really mysterious and sometimes intense. You can already see from the cover of the book, if you look closer, it's a girl that is levitating, black and white, that already gave a little introduction of the story. So, it started of with a boy name Jacob Portman. His grandpa always tell him stories and show him photographs of his fantasy childhood. He was grown in an orphanage with peculiar children, which have superpowers, and stuff like that. He fought in wars, served in circus, all of the stories that he told sounds very interesting but also unrealistic. Jacob believed in him when he was still a child, and idolised him, but this stopped when Jacob grew up and realised that it can't be true. One day, he found his grandpa dead in a forest, killed by a monster, and his last words led him to a mysterious island. In his journey, he'll find out that everything his grandpa said were true. I really like this book, because instead of a bunch of words, there are a several photographs that are very vivid. I got really into this book, there are a lot of climax in this story, I will not get bored by reading this. Looking forward to it's next episode!

    This is the first book of this serie, and I like it the most because it's most original, and that's when everything happened, the truth is revealed. So, this is about a boy named Percy Jackson. All his life is boring, he lives with his mom, and mean step father that always beat up his mom and him. He was told that his dad left him since he's only a baby. he has difficulties reading english, because the words always change into different patterns he always thought that he has ADHD. Until one day, when he went on a field trip to a museum. A teacher asked Percy for a private talk and transformed into a monster and tried to kill him, because she thought that he's the lightning thief (the person who stole the lightning bolt from Zues). And then he found out that he's actually a half blood, half god (Poseidon), half human, and his best friend Grover is a half goat to protect Percy. After what happened in the museum, Percy is no longer safe, so he went to the half blood camp thing so that it will protect him. And later on this story, he will find the real lightning thief, return the bolt back to Zeus which saved the peace of Earth know as the human world. I really love this book, because it's very intense, and its about Greek mythology which I'm pretty interested in, love the movie too! Enjoy.

    laurak's book review was featured in Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters.
    This is the second book of the Percy Jackson series. A lot of important events happened in this stories. it started off with a competition, it showed that Percy Jackson had a new competitor, and she's the daughter of war, Clarisse. She's really tough, strong and clever, and very competitive, likes to tease Percy Jackson about that all he did (In the lightning thief serie) was because of luck. And then, he found out that he has a step brother, that is half god, half cyclops. During a usual day, they heard something huge, sounds like something is bumping the wall of Thalia (the daughter of Zeus). It brought a great disaster in the camp, because without that wall, anything, monsters, beasts can go in and destroy the half bloods. So they decided to send a group of the strongest kids to go find the golden fleece, known that it can heal anything. Although the directors sent Clarisse, and another half goat, but Percy thinks that he has the responsibility to save the camp, because of the prophecy he heard. And so he went on an adventure to find the golden fleece, to save the Olympus. It's also very intense to read, the scenes reveal in your eyes vividly, a really good book to read, it's also pretty funny. I really recommend this book the kids in any age, because it's not too hard, and it's interesting, have fun reading this fantastic book!
