The Circle Opens: Street Magic By Tamora Pierce

This book is all about Briar, except now he is the teacher. This is an interesting way of seeing a character grow up, and take on the role of an adult. I love the part where Briar states that people normally does not cross mages, and he was reminding one person why at the time.

Mastiff by Tamora Pierce

This was a great plot, with many twist and turns. the ending leaves me with  mix feelings on the ending. I love the way Pierce made this hard to guess, along with adventuresome and captivating. I would defiantly recommend this book to someone, especially if they read the first two books.

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater

This was an ok book, I loved the plot, of two people in a horse race falling in love, but the ending was horrible, I know the race turns out ok, however I do not get to see how Puck can save her house, or how Sean’s life with Corr becomes.

Finnikin of the Rock by Melina Marchetta

Was a great read, had a lot of action, with a diverse set of characters. The characters made the story come alive with the romance, the fighting, and the decisions.

The Hunger Games by: Suzanne Collins

I wanted to read this book after watching the movie, just to see if the movie was anything like the book. I love the book, especially since all of Katniss’s thoughts were written down.  Now I can’t wait to read the second and third books.

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

This is the second book for the Hunger Games, and Collins does not let this book fail. She wrote it with more twist and turns, but never failing to show how Katniss sees the Seventy Five Hunger Games, or the nightmares that come from the last games.

Mockingjay by: Suzanne Collins

This bittersweet ending of this marvelous triology was great. Collins pulled the story closed, without destroying the plot. The plot was great; showing how one girl, who is a hero in everones’ eyes, is broken and fighting for life. And Collins nails the ending, there are a worst games to play.

The Chase by Diann Mills

The ending was great, however I was sorely disappointed on the beginning of book.  I loved the way the case was unraveling, however the two main characters seem to not be very developed until almost the end of the book, which seemed out of place.

Grave Mercy by Robin Lafevers

This was a great read, I love the how the characters are themselves; how they are made and molded to fit the story.  The plot and setting are fascinating, to see how a women who is raised for killing to being able  see hope and a second chance.
