Wicked by Sara Shepard

I believe this is the 5th book in the ''Pretty Little Liars'' series. Yay! So there are 3 more! Let's begin!! In beautiful Rosewood, Pennsylvania, four lying girls just can't help but be rotten. Hanna will stop at nothing to be Rosewood's ''it'' girl. Spencer is diggin' up her family's deepest secrets. Emily can't stop stressing over her new boyfriend. And Aria approves a little bit too strongly of her mommy's new date. But now that Ali's killer is finally in prison, the girls ''think'' they're safe. But they always seem to forget that A is watching their every move...

Ahhhh.. I love a relaxing blog entry. When I went to go buy the next book, which is called ''Killer'' I thought it said ''Kitten'' cause the swirly way it was written. Ha-ha. Just to remind you, this book has some cursing, mild violence, and a little bit of sexual content. Also the age range would be 14-16 years old. Like I said in the first PLL blog post, I know my age is not in the age range. But people say I'm mature for my age. (I always thought I was inmature. Hee-hee.) Did I tell you that I'm blogging to all of you from my brand-new LAPTOP?! Well not really ''brand-new'' but I got it for my b-day. Anyways gotta go! Later ;)

Fablehaven by Brandon Mull

What's the craziest thing you have ever discovered? For Kendra and Seth Sorenson, it's the magical property their plain, old-fashion grandparents own...shocking, I know. Witches, wizards, fairies, trolls, satyrs, centaurs, naiads, and even evil demons all live in Fablehaven with Grandpa Sorenson as their caretaker. But, what Kendra and Seth don't know, is that once their eyes open up to this magical land, there's no going back. So, once midsummer's eve rolls around, Seth gets a little too curious and ends up putting everyone in danger...

Unlike some of my past posts, I didn't read this one a long time ago. I believe I read it like a month ago. At first when I saw this at the bookstore, I almost didn't get it! When I saw the cover I thought it was soooooo creepy! Then I read the book and realized that the women on the front is Muriel the witch. There is no cursing, some violence, and I think in the second book there's some relationship content. The age range would be like 10-13 years old. But a mature 8 year old could defiantly read it. I absolutely love this series!  The fast-moving chapters are so exciting! After I read this book, I wanted to be a fairy and live at Fablehaven! Okay, gotta go! Bye! See ya later!!

The Candy Shop War by Brandon Mull

Have you ever heard of magic candy? If you have, keep reading! If not, you should still keep reading. When Nate, Trevor, Summer, and Paul (a.k.a Pigeon) discover a small dessert shoppe called, Sweet Tooth Ice Cream and Candy Shoppe, they also discover something a little bit out of the ordinary... magical candy. Such as, rock candy that makes you fly, white chocolate fudge that entices you to eat more an more, and Proxy dust that shrinks you down to the size of a rag doll! Impossible you say? Read the book and find out...

Oh my gosh, I read this book so long ago. Yes I know, I've said that a lot. But this time it's true. Umm, age range would be, around 9-11 years old. So according to that, there would be no cursing, no relationship content, and very mild mild violence. I really loved this book. It's super cute and fun. Whenever they ate the rock candy, they flew up like 10 feet in the air! It was awesome! Now I'm tired, *yawn* bye bye!! Thanks for reading.

Maximum Ride - Saving the World & Other Extreme Sports by James Patterson

Woo-hoo! Sequels rock! So, let's begin... in this book, Max and the flock- Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gazzy, and Angel - are obviously designed for greatness. With their breath-taking wings, strong powerful bird bones, and lean 'n mean bird-kid muscles, they are AWESOME! But, sadly now the six of them are being chased, no hunted, around the world by a new, smarter, stronger, more powerful enemy. But this time is... way more fun! No one said saving the world was going to be easy.
OBSTACLES:
-Flyboys: that look like Erasers, but are way stronger and smarter
-Evil Plot: the most terrible, horrible human experiment...EVER!
-Unthinkable Truth: there is a traitor among us
-Romance: a big issue, that idiot Fang was never one to take a hint
-Impossibility Factor: will they even be able to save themselves???


Like I said in my previous posts, this series will aways be one of my faves! But in this one, some of the parts made me sad, like when Max and Fang split up the flock. I also did some research, and after the sixth book, there is going to be a seventh book!! It comes out in February 2011. I can't wait that long!! But, the rumor is, that two more books are coming out after that one. I love sequels. Don't you hate it when a book that you like ends, and then there isn't another one after it? I know I do. I also hate it when people keep on interrupting me when I'm reading! I am sooooo tired now, looking at a bright computer screen for 20 minutes can make a girl want to sleep for like a day or two. Haha, J.K. L.O.L.! So.... byeeeee :)

My Last Best Friend by Julia Bowe

Best friends like all the same things. They sit with each other on the bus. They give each other friendship bracelets. They tell each other ALL their secrets. And if they leave town, they DON'T forget to write. After her last best friend, Elizabeth, moves away, Ida May vows to never have another one. So with bratty, bossy, goody-two-shoes Jenna Drews taking control of the fourth grade, not getting a new best friend shouldn't be too hard. But then sparkly, crayon-smiling Stacy Merriweather steps into the picture, and Ida has to force herself not to smile back...

When I read this book, Ida reminded me of, well me. Except, I don't only have one friend and I'm not in fourth grade. But her attitude is pretty close to mine. I really liked this book, it's a sweet read with cute characters. And  it's a pretty young book, so there is no violence, no cursing, and no relationship content. Even my baby sister, Trinity wants to read this book!! The age range would be like 8-10 years old. Sadly, a movie is NOT being made out of this book. :( Too bad, so sad. Okay now I'm all done. So... peace ;)

Unbelievable by Sara Shepard

Yay! Another book! So get ready, cause this book is ''Unbelievable''. Ha-ha. I made a funny. Let's get started. Four pretty little liars' charmed lives come crashing down, because... Emily's been shipped off to live in Iowa with her super-conservative cousins. Aria's new boyfriend is behind bars, not surprisingly- because of her. Spencer's afraid she was involved in Ali's murder. But Hanna's fate is far worse: She bound to live her life in a hospital (for a while anyway) because, apparently, she knew too much... So if these pretty little liars don't start listening to A, Hanna's probably gonna look like the lucky one.... uh-oh.

After the wild ending to ''Perfect'', I was itching to read this one! There are at least 4 more books after this one. So, that means there are 8 in the whole series. Yay! I love books. ''Pretty Little Liars'' isn't so much sci-fi, more spooky mystery. In the abc series they made out of the book, is pretty close. But they got a few characters wrong. OK, I'm beat. Whew, blogging takes a lot out of ya. Later.

Maximum Ride -School's Out, Forever by James Patterson

Fang, Iggy, Nudge, Gazzy, Angel, and Maximum Ride, herself: 6 amazing kids with the ability to fly, free as birds...until Max and her flock are discovered by a snooty know-it-all FBI agent, who force them to face their worst nightmare -school. The terrible place where they have to learn everything, but how to survive as fugitives constantly being hunted by psycho killers. You can't study for survival.

FLOCK REPORT CARD:
Computer Skills - A. Able to hack any computer in the blink of an eye.
Scientific Research - B. Score points for discovering source of diabolical plan to destroy the world
Dating - C. Needs work on picking suitable mates.
Saving the World - This tends to be a pass/fail course...

This book makes me wish I could fly! I like the way Max mouths off to grown-ups, it's very funny. I think it is very clever to have them go to school. It was like they couldn't function in a normal situations. My favorite part is when Max has to make-up fake names for everyone. This series will always be one of my favorites. And guess what? I'm reading another J.P. book! It's called ''Daniel X-Alien Hunter''. It's soooo cool! Don't worry, I'll blog about that one too. So, I'll go finish that book right now! Bye-bye!!

Witch & Wizard by James Patterson

What if one day you found out that your parents have been keeping a secret -that could change your life forever- from you, your whole life? How would you feel if you were kidnapped at midnight and were accused of being a witch or wizard? If you were told that everything you've ever loved -your books, music, and pictures- were banned forever, what would you do? What would you do if you were thrown in a secret jail in the middle of nowhere filled with a bunch of other kids? Now, I don't know about you, but I want answers to those questions... and I know just who to get them from. Wisteria and Whitford Allgood. Sister and brother. Witch and Wizard. This is their story.

It looks like Mr. Harry Potter's got some competition, wouldn't ya say? I love a good sci-fi fantasy book every once and a while. Don't you? My favorite part in this book would be when, Wisty (Wisteria) burst into flames for the first time! This book has no real cursing, some violence, and mild relationship content. Age range, would be 12-16 years of age. Guess what? Another movie is being made of one of James Patterson's books. Yay! But, they better not screw this one up... or I'll be mad ;). Its probably comin' out when ''Maximum Ride'' is. Isn't it all exciting? Okay, now with all the excitement going on, I gotta bounce. Blog ya later!

A Non-Blonde Cheerleader in Love by Keiran Scott

One more to this series! Boo-hoo. Annisa's having major boy problems when The Sand Dune High National Championship cheer squad has gone coed, and not everyone is happy about it. As if dealing with her blonde squad teammates wasn't enough stress, her boyfriend, Daniel signs up. At first Annisa is super psyched to be getting more time with Daniel, and stunting with the guys is epic! But then a fundraiser battle of the sexes starts to heat up. Annisa is caught between her teammates and Daniel. Could one non-blonde cheerleader keep the girls from murdering the guys? Or will the battle turn into an all-out-cheer-war? And will her love for Daniel force to make a decision that she will regret?

Um, sorry Ms. Scott, but this book was the worst of the series. To be honest, it's pretty boring. Some of the parts were funny, but there weren't enough of them to make up for the boring parts. It was a good idea to have the squad go coed. But the author didn't do much with it. I'm pretty sure this is the last book, but I could be wrong. Like I said in the first book's post, this series has no cursing, no violence and mild relationship content. Okie-doke. I have nothing left to say, so later.

Allie Finkle's RULES FOR GIRLS - Moving Day by Meg Cabot

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, happy birthday dear me-eeeee! Happy birthday to me!! I love birthdays. I'm twelve now! Woo-hoo! Since it's my b-day, I decided to do one of my favorite books!  ''Allie Finkle's RULES FOR GIRLS - Moving Day'' is a very cute book. Allie Finkle, an imaginative 4th grader, has to move to a new town and go to a new school. She's not so happy about giving up her pretty in pink wall-to-wall carpeting for creaky ugly floorboards and weird secret passageways. Not to mention leaving behind her modern, state-of-the-art school for rundown, old-fashion school. With a bedroom she's half-scared to go into, the burden of being ''the new girl'', and all her friends being a 30 minute car drive away, how will Allie ever learn to fit in?

Every year my birthday seems to get better and better. I love blogging. Allie Finkle always says funny stuff like, ''I like rules. What I'm not so crazy about is everything else.'' ha ha. This novel has no cursing, no violence, and no relationship content. It's a good book for young girls at the age of 8-10.  So, yeah I read this book a while ago. Um-kay, I'm done. Later.
