Peter and the Sword of Mercy By Neil

 

 

 

 

 

Peter and the Sword of Mercy is the last book in the Peter and the Starcatchers series. This is a great book, with a lot of adventure. You can’t expect anything that will happen. Every page I turn I’m surprised by something.

If you like an adventure novel definitely start this series. Each book builds on one another. And this last book takes place 20 years after the other three books. Which is an odd twist to keep the series going.

In the first book that starts the series, pirates board Peter’s ship. The pirates search for a hidden treasure on the ship. Molly and Peter have to keep it safe. Then soon a problem arises that would change Peter’s life forever.

The Alchemyst Book Review By Keenan W

The Alchemyst by Michael Scott is a really interesting book. It is a fantasy book, which is my favorite genre. There is also some suspense in the book at the end of chapters, and I like that too. This book is about two twins who meet an immortal man who has lost an important book, one that could end the human race. He takes the two kids to a goddess because he knows that they have extraordinary powers (that they don’t know about) and can help him get the book back. Another thing I really like about the book is that it switches from different people’s perspectives, so you know what’s going on with all of the characters in the book. I have not finished the book, but I am really enjoying it right now. I recommend reading The Alchemyst.

I am reading The Red Kayak. I first heard of this book during a book talk. The teacher was talking about this book and I was very interested in it, so I found the book, checked it out, and I’m just starting to read it. I chose to read this book because it has a lot of drama in it and there are a couple of mysteries to be solved.

Book Review Gregor and the Marks Of Secret by Noah C.

 Photo by Noah

The book Gregor and the Marks Of Secret is the fourth book in “The Underland Chronicles.” I chose this book to read because there was a lot of suspense from the previous book. I chose to start reading the series because the series is written by the same author as The Hunger Games, Suzanne Collins. “The Underland Chronicle” books, from the ones that I have read, are about a boy named Gregor from New York City. He discovers another world inside earth. This world is underground and they have many prophecies about Gregor that he has to fulfill. These books have a lot of suspense and make you want to keep reading. I highly recommend reading this series.

Uncommon Criminals Book Review by Grace G

I’m reading “Uncommon Criminals” by Ally Carter. This book is about Katarina Bishop, a teenage thief. Well she wouldn’t call herself a thief, she steals things, but then gives them to their rightful owner. But for the last two months she has been known as the girl who ran the crew who robbed the Henley. When Kat comes across a woman who asks her to steal the Cleopatra Emerald, there is a lot of planning to go through. When something horrible happens Kat is not going to give up, she has her crew of friends and family who are ready to help.

This book is a great mystery. This book is the second in a series so I would suggest reading the first book “Heist Society” first. I love this book because it is a great page turner; I just want to fnd out what happens next.

Twilight Book Review by Michiko

In class I am reading Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. It is a really good book. I picked it because it was one of the few books on my bookshelf that I have not read. I did not expect it to be as interesting as it is. There are many suspenseful moments as well as nice moments. I have really enjoyed the book. The author uses many vocabulary words that make her book more interesting. Also, the author is descriptive to make it easier to understand the story. I have not finished the book yet but so far the book is very good. I can’t wait to read the next one!

Maze Runner by James Dashner is suspenseful and you never want to put it down. Maze Runner starts with Thomas who wakes up in a giant metal box with no memory. Then the doors of the box open and he is in a place called the Glade with other boys. The Glade is a place where there are giant walls that shut the Glade off from a maze that has monsters called grievers. Thomas makes friends and then he learns the only way to go home is to solve the maze. Read the book to find out the end.

The Hobbit: A Book Review By David

 Photo by David P

Recently, with “The Hobbit” being made into a movie, with all of the memorabilia junk and such, it has been popularized. Over the past month or so, I have seen many more people carrying around a copy of it. However, I am proud to say that since I was six, I have been an extremely dedicated Tolkien fan. I have read almost all of his books, with the exception of an Elvish Encyclopedia, and I have the really old (cardboard thingy cover and map on the first page) version (you can tell because the text on the cover is starting to fade) of “The Hobbit”. I have read it at least twenty-five times, and I am reading it again (Near the end now!). I love Tolkien’s writing. It helps me escape from a world that is all too real and let my imagination be free.

A hobbit named Bilbo Baggins, who has never thought of doing anything out-of-the-ordinary or going outside of his comfort zone, has his house invaded by dwarves seeking to claim the treasure of Erebor, kingdom under the mountain. Their leader is a dwarf named Thorin Oakenshield, and he is the grandson of the King Under The Mountain, Thrain. Erebor was overrun by a dragon, and the dwarves are looking to recover Erebor. Poor Bilbo is dragged along on an adventure, in which he learns about the outside world while getting captured by goblins, traveling through caves and forests, and even meeting Beorn, the skin-changer. He learns about doing the right thing and being tenacious. All in all, it is a wonderful book and I recommend it strongly to anyone who asks, “Should I read it?”.
