Ironskin By Tina Connolly

This was a interesting twist to Jane Eyre.  The plot and characters are captivating and unique. This retelling of Jane Eyre,  is one that i thought was done very well, and I have enjoyed reading it.

Dragonswood By: Janet Lee Carey

The book was great. Tess had to find her way and and learn the truths meant for her. Making new friends and learning more about herself than she could have ever thought of. Carey did a great job at making the story real.

Thief’s Covenant By: Ari Marmell

The cover captivated me, and the synopsis was intriguing.  The plot however was the most unique part of the book. I was not written in an orderly timeline, it would go from two years ago to present to six years ago to four years ago, and so forth. However it was a great way to make the plot stronger and so much more interesting.

The False King By: Jennifer A. Nielsen

I loved this book. Nielsen did a great job at making the characters and the plot seem real. She ended it well. I so can not wait to read the second book in this trilogy.

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.

Froi of the Exiles by Melina Marchetta

I jumped into this book not wanting to wait to see what happens. I loved the way the action and adventure began so fast. The surprises and turn of events added a characteristic that made me want to keep reading. The only draw back I have from this  book is the ending, it was left handing. I cannot wait until the third book comes out to see how things are taken care of.

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.
