The Magicians by Lev Grossman

I probably would have never picked up this book if a friend hadn’t recommended it to me. Once I started reading it, though, it was hard to put it down. With a somewhat mature Harry Potter feel, this book is about Quentin Coldwater. Quentin and the crowd he hangs out with are all really smart. [...]

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Mockingjay is the last book of the Hunger Games series, and my least favorite out of the three. Katniss has found herself to be in District 13, thought to have been wiped out by the capital. She wakes up to find out that she was saved from the games but now Peeta has been captured [...]

Hero by Perry Moore

Several years ago I found this book online and never got a chance to read it since I was still in school. After seeing it one day and ordering it for the library, and now after reading, I’m glad I did. This is the story of Thom. Thom is raised by his dad who was [...]

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

The second book of the Hunger Games series, Catching Fire, is a very good read and may have been just as good as the first one. The story picks up months after Katniss and Peeta return from the Games and are now living their lives in the victor’s village. Katniss is unaware that her actions [...]

Wayne of Gotham a Novel by Tracy Hickman

Wayne of Gotham is the first actual novel I have read that is about Batman. I found it to be a very good read and may even prefer it over conventional comic books or graphic novels. The story takes place later in Batman’s career. He is now older and needs a high tech bat suit [...]

The Witching Hour by Anne Rice

I am a big fan of Anne Rice, and going into this book I was hoping it was as good as her Vampire Chronicle books. After reading over nine hundred pages, it was well worth the time it took to read and maybe as good as the Vampire Chronicles. The story takes place with a [...]

The Shadow Thieves by Anne Ursu

This book I actually bought instead of picking it up from the library and I was not disappointed afterwards. I was looking for a Percy Jackson type and this fits pretty good with the Greek god adventure books. The story follows two main characters, Charlotte and Zach. They happen to be cousins. Charlotte is from [...]
