    Gary W. Boone or Goon LOVES telling jokes! He wants to be a stand up comedian when he grows up, but no one likes his jokes except Angeline his best friend. News about a talent show has come and he would absolutely love to win, but what actually happens turns out to be totally different! I recommend this book and love it!

    This book is an absolutely amazing conclusion to the lunar chronicles series! It is a pretty thick book and took me a long time to read it, but it was totally worth it. This book focuses mainly on Winter, Levana's beautiful step daughter, and is based on the fairy tale Snow White. Winter is rumored to be the fairest girl in all the land, which upsets Levana very much. This is why, previously, Levana forced Winter to scar herself on her cheek, but much to Levana's dismay, this seemed to accentuate Winter's beauty even more. Winter also refuses to use glamour to hide her scars or to manipulate anyone, after she realized very young that glamour could be used for more evil than good. This causes Winter to have hallucinations and go crazy once in a while, because she refuses to use her gift. And of course, there has to be a love interest, in this case it is the royal guard Jacin. If that name sounds familiar, you are correct, Jacin was present in the previous book, Cress, but is thought to have betrayed the Rampion crew. He came back to Luna and is now appointed as Winter's personal guard. Meanwhile, on the Rampion, Cinder, Wolf, Cress, Iko, and Captain Thorne, are formulating a plan to overthrow Levana, and rescue Scarlet from Luna. But in order to do this they have to get onto Luna, and this is where Kai comes in. He needs to find a way to move the wedding and coronation to Luna, instead of Earth, this proves to be the simple part, because there are much more hardships ahead. The book follows the journeys of everyone as they get separated, reunited, and reacquainted over and over again. Winter and Scarlet escape from the castle, faking Winters death, where they meet Cress after she had gotten separated from Cinder, Thorne, Wolf, and Iko when they made a big scene escaping from the docks. Their plan has to be modified many times over, but in the end they all live happily ever after, but after way more sacrifices and battles then the original fairy tales ever had. This series is by far my favorite of all time, I loved the author's creativity in mixing so many different genres, the classic fairy tale, futuristic technology, sci-fi battles, fantasy adventure, and a hint of romance. Every middle schooler should have a chance to read this series, because you won't regret it.

    This third installation to Marissa Meyer's Lunar Chronicles did not disappoint. Unlike most book series in which the books get worse as the series continues, all of the books in the Lunar Chronicles are just as good, if not better, than the previous ones. And just like its previous books, Cress is a wonderfully written, futuristic, sci-fi, retelling of a classic fairy tale. As you can probably guess by the title, Cress is based on Rapunzel, and just like Rapunzel, the main character Crescent (Cress for short) has been trapped up high for a long time. But unlike Rapunzel who was trapped in a tower, Cress' prison is much higher. Cress is trapped in a satellite orbiting the moon high up in space. Being trapped in a satellite for so long has resulted in Cress being an excellent hacker, just the thing that the fugitive crew traveling together on the Rampion would need. And yes, Cinder does know about Cress because she is the one on the other side of the D-Comm chip that Cinder found in the Prince's android. The Rampion Crew (Cinder, Scarlet, Wolf, and Thorne) attempt to rescue Cress, but in the process they lose some members of their crew, and gain some new ones. The crew is trying to stop Kai from marrying Queen Levana and get Cinder on the Lunar throne as Princess Selene, the rightful heir. There is also a tiny hint of romance in this book between Cress and Captain Thorne, but Cress is nervous it might be going only one way, because she has done a lot of research on him, but he doesn't seem to know anything about her. She thought that he was a wonderful hero, but when she learns the whole truth from him rather than what she found on the internet, it turns out that he may be what everyone thinks he is, a sarcastic fugitive with a big ego. But even after learning this, Cress cannot get rid of her feelings for him. This book has so many hidden connections to Scarlet and Cinder, and they do a great job of tying the whole story together, and keeping you turning pages. I would totally recommend this to teens who like sci-fi, romance, and fantasy added to the classic fairy tale. I hadn't even finished the second book before I knew that this was one of my favorite series, so I would encourage other teens to try it too.

    This book is wonderfully written and the story was absolutely amazing. I loved how the book was sort of a sci-fi and futuristic retelling of the fairy tale, "Cinderella." I am glad that I chose to read this book, because at first it didn't really look like a book that I would enjoy, but it completely surprised me and changed my view of the novel. The main character is named Cinder, that much you can gather from the title, and she is a cyborg, the result of a surgery when she was 11. Cinder has no memories from before the surgery and is currently living with her stepmother and stepsisters on Earth, in New Beijing of the Commonwealth, 125 years after World War IV. Cinder uses her talents as a mechanic to earn money, which she then has to give to her stepmother, Adri, because Cinder is required to "contribute" to the family's payments, when really she is earning all the money herself. Cinder and Adri's relationship was already rather strained, since Adri never wanted Cinder in the first place, so when an excuse comes for Cinder to be to sent away, to participate in something that no one ever survives, she doesn't hesitate. Cinder gets sent in for plague research, as a test subject for the disease, letumosis, and she proves more valuable than anyone thought, and Cinder isn't even given the full truth of her identity. To make things even more complicated, Cinder gets all tied up with the prince of New Beijing, who insists Cinder call him Kai, when he came to her booth in search of someone to fix his android. This provides a little twist of romance, with both Cinder and Kai keeping secrets and with both of them unsure of their feelings. This book is a mash up of so many genres; fantasy, sci-fi, romance, and the classic fairy tale, which causes you to never want to stop reading it and leaves you reaching for the next book of the series. This is a great read for teens with a preference of any genre or writing style, since this book has something in it for everyone.

    vkgisawesomeliked a comment in Twilight (The Twilight Saga, Book 1).
    I love this book so much! When I started reading this, I was immediately entranced by the wonderful characters, great romance, and unique theme. Stephanie Meyer clearly wants the reader to enjoy her book, and she succeeded. Get ready to fall in love with Twilight—get ready to meet Bella Swan, Edward Cullen, and many other characters on an emotional roller coaster ride that you will never forget! The story starts off with Isabella, a seventeen-year-old girl who moves to a rainy town called Forks to live with her father. She’s pretty sure moving to such a gloomy, dull place is going to be the most boring moment of her life—but she’s wrong. When Bella meets Edward Cullen, she’s inexplicably drawn to him. Edward’s hiding something, though...and it’s something that could destroy Bella’s life forever. Suspenseful and amazingly written, Twilight will thrill fans of The Hunger Games, Divergent, or the Selection.
