Rain Reign
by Ann M. Martin

This was a very interesting book about a girl named Rose and her situation with her dog named Rain. Rose got Rain after her father found Rain in the rain without any identification/collar. Hurricane Susan comes inland and it hits Rose’s neighborhood hard. Rain had to pee but she was never taken out for a bathroom break so Rose’s father lets Rain out in the middle of Hurricane Susan. Rain had gotten lost in the storm. Rose waits for a little while to see if Rain will come back home using her nose but she never does. That is why Rose starts looking for Rain. I really liked this book and I was really able to connect and get to know the characters. This book kept going and didn’t get boring. I kept wanting to turn the pages.

Cadence Sinclair Eastman comes from the rich and powerful Sinclair family. The Sinclairs having seemingly perfect lives filled mansions and money and everything in-between. But, anybody actually part of the family knows that their lives are anything but perfect. Cadence might know it best of all. When Cadence was 15, she suffered a terrible head injury at Beechwood (The Sinclair's private island that they live on in the summer), that left her with agonizing migraines and selective amnesia. She can barely remember anything about the summer that her accident took place. Whats worse is that nobody will tell her what happened either. So now, at age 17, Cadence spends her summer trying to figuring out what actually happened to her. As her memory starts to come back little by little, the painful truth is revealed of what actually happened the summer she was 15. Overall, I really liked this book. I've always enjoyed mysteries and this one had a surprising twist ending that I did not see coming. I also thought it was really cool how this book was written. The author's style of writing was very metaphorical, which gave this book a sense of beauty and got me really thinking about what the author is trying to say. I think this style fit the book perfectly. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because this wasn't my favorite book I have ever read. I found the explanation for the mystery itself almost unrealistic, the way Cadence lit the fire before everybody was out of the house. She seemed smarter than that. Other than that, I don't really have any more complaints about this book. I would definitely recommend this book to somebody that enjoys a good mystery!

The Red Pyramid

I like the book because there is Egyptian mythology. I never knew that the Washington Monument is an obelisk. I also didn’t know there are more obelisks in England, Egypt and France. I don’t like that Sadie made peace with Set instead of banishing him to the Duat.

Atlas Shrugged Paperback
by Ayn Rand

The book is about a dystopian world where progressive policies took over in America, while the rest of the world fell to communism. The majority of what is left of business is in the deregulated South but the federal government created more regulations causing most businesses in the country to shut down and the best entrepreneurs to retire and go to a land of deregulation. I recommend this book to people interested in political science.

It seems like everywhere you look there is a new book regarding race, however this one is very good. it is about a black teen who was beat up by a white cop over nothing, and how the kid's school reacts, starting protests and how the kids split up and take a side. It is very eye opening and shows how this is an issue that effects everyone.

Princess Pulverizer Grilled Cheese and Dragon
by Nancy Krulik

I like this book because it’s about a princess who wants to be a knight and she has to go on 8 Quests of Kindness for her father to allow her to go to Knight School. Her first Quest was to find Queen of Shmergermeister’s jewels. Princess Pulverizer went to the ogres Castle to find them and she met two new friends. One of the friends she meets is a dragon who could make really good cheese grilled cheese sandwiches that she loves. The book gives you a sneak peek to the next book in the series, which I cannot wait to read. I thought this book was funny and I highly recommend this book.

Cinders and Sparks Magic at Midnight
by Lindsey Kelk

View in Library Catalog



If you like The Whatever After series, fairy tales and magic then you will love this book and series as well! I really enjoyed this fairy tale spin on Cinderella which mixes other fairy tale stories in it as well, like little bo peep and Hansel and Gretel. Cinders has magic powers and a talking dog named Sparks. They go on adventures with and at the end discover why she has magic powers. My favorite character is Cinders because she doesn’t want to be perfect like her sisters and she gets messy. My favorite part in the book was when she discovers that Sparks can talk because it is funny. I definitely recommend this book, and can’t wait to read book 2 !!!
