Home front / by Hannah, Kristin,

Publication: New York : St. Martin's Press, 2012 . 390 p. ; 25 cm. Date: 2012

This book is a book that you wont want to put down until you finish it. I first opened it yesterday at lunch time, read it till 3.00 a.m. this morning when my eyes would no longer stay open and have finished it this afternoon. It is a novel but is so realistic it could be a true story. A book that will be enjoyed my many I know.

Haunting Violet / by Harvey, Alyxandra,

Publication: London : Bloomsbury, 2011 . 343 p. ; 20 cm. Date: 2011

Inheritance / Ages 14+ by Paolini, Christopher,

Publication: London : Doubleday Children's, 2011 . xviii, 860 p. : 25 cm. Date: 2011

A story that delves into the mythical and grabs hold of you. When you put it down you almost immediatly yearn to re-emerge yourself in Alagaesia. If you are a reader I would recommend the series; if not I doubt you could stick to it and it would just waste your time. Caitlin Added 01/10/2012 by Catherine

The selection / by Cass, Kiera,

Publication: London : HarperCollins Children's, 2012 . 327 p. ; 18 cm. Date: 2012

This book was totally cool; a bit predictable but wasn't about vamps or werewolves at least. The main character was tough and somewhat honouralbe. The book is easy to read and understand. Anita Added 01/10/2012 by Catherine

Came a hot Friday / by Morrieson, Ronald Hugh,

Publication: Auckland, N.Z. : Penguin, 1981 . 234 p. ; 18 cm. Date: 1981

I can see why Ronald Hugh Morrieson was described as 'our most precious; writer - he can create believable, likable characters and a fast-moving story. It's not that hard to get into and it's definitely worth reading. Sophie Added 01/10/2012 by Catherine

Crocodile tears / by Horowitz, Anthony,

Publication: London : Walker, 2009 . 425 pages ; 20 cm. Date: 2009

This book is a must have for any one who is into none stop, mindblowing adventures that will make you leap out of you'r seat and make you want to keep reading right until the very end. This book is about a teenage spy that haves to give everything that he possibly can to survive, you never know where life might take you, especially if you'r Alex Rider. The fun never stops, so I highly recomend that you read the other books in the series and see if you like them as much as I do. My favourite by far would have to be Crocodile Tears.

Divergent / Teenage/Secondary by Roth, Veronica,

Publication: London, UK : Harpercollins Children's Books, 2011 . 496 p. 22 cm. Date: 2011

love love love this book, (; highly recommend if you love dystopian novel's like I do (HUNGER GAMES, HUNGER GAMES,) people have been saying this book is better than hunger games. but i'm gonna set that straight, ummm people it's really good, but it's on the same level as hunger games, or maybe a tiny bit lower. BUT ITS MOST NOT LIKELY BETTER THAN HUNGER GAMES. LOL. well that's my opinion
