    This is a great read for those who love dystopian societies and books such as The Hunger Games and The Giver. Go in open minded. If you have seen the movie, but not read the book please give the book a try! While the movie is good, it misses so much, because you can't fit that much information into 2 or even 3 hours.

    A new take on fairy tales leaves you wanting more! Two lovely girls in their own right find themselves in the School of Good and Evil. As they received a true fairy tale education, they find good and evil is not as clearly defined as fairy tales suggest. Their friendship is tested to the limits. I am looking forward to reading book two!

    An adventure for kids of all ages, Harry Potter is full of magic. My favorite thing about J.K. Rowling's writing is that there is a curiosity that makes each of her character relate-able. Read as a family or read alone, this book is a great way to start fun reading!

    This is a sister book to Graceling. Read in whatever order you want. Fire takes a look at another at a world not unlike that found in Narnia or Lord of the Rings. I love that in this novel the character Fire has powers that are unique to her particular kind of monster!

    Read this book aloud with my daughter and we are continuing the series. It is a fun way to introduce chapter books to younger girls and tweens. Based on the Monster High dolls you can almost play along as you read!

    I actually liked Insurgent better than the first book Divergent! It pulls you in to a dystopian world that is familiar yet strange.

    Veronica Roth does it again, but I will say that as with any dystopian novel, expect the unexpected. Not my favorite of the books but still worth the read. I can't wait to read Four's side of the story!

    Rick Riordan continues his modern twist on mythology. I love that in this series he goes back and forth between 2 worlds, Greek and Roman as well as Hades and Earth in this book!
