The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins
Genre: Adventure

I absolutely LOVED this book. I saw the movie the DAY it came out. The book is about a girl named Katniss who, in a desperate moment, decides to take her 12 year old sister's place in the 74th Annual Hunger Games. She is reunited with the boy who saved her in what is probably her most desperate time of need. They go through the Games, half alone and half together...

The Warlock, by Michael Scott
Genre: Fantasy

Probably the best book in the whole series so far. Has lots of plot twists that keep you guessing up to the last page. Can't wait for the next one!

The Book Thief, by Markus Zusak
Genre: Fiction

I was reluctant to read this book because I knew the narrator was death and I thought it would be a sad story about the horrors of World War II. Taking place in Nazi Germany, there are three wonderful characters: Liesel, age 9, a foster child and book lover; Rudy, her best friend who is daring and colorful; and Hans, Liesel's foster father who is kind and caring. Told from the perspective of non-Jewish Germans works well as do the pencil drawings and nice prose.

Lucas, by Kevin Brooks
Genre: Fiction

Author Kevin Brooks is not afraid to stray away from the straight and narrow path of supernatural creatures that seem to always fill the store shelves with his book 'Lucas'. With a mixture of action and sitting-on-the-edge-of-your-seat anticipation, 'Lucas' is the kind of book that opens our eyes to the injustices that still take place around us and guides us through main character Caitlyn MacCann's search for her identity. It's unlike other books where the characters are muscular, strong men who have girls falling for them from every direction. Only Caitlyn falls for Lucas, the mysterious boy (and pretty average non-muscular, lean boy) who catches Caitlyn's attention as soon as she sets her eyes on him. Living on the small island of Hale off the coast of England, it is odd to see strangers unless they happen to be tourists. Lucas isn't a tourist, though. He draws attention to himself not only as an outsider but through his slight build and blond hair with blue eyes. A series of events take place and are unjustly blamed on him, forcing him to take a defensive stand. He is marked as enemy number one as soon as Jamie Tait, the "closest thing to a celebrity the island has ever produced", is antagonized by him.

Witch and Wizard, by James Patterson and Gabrielle Charbonnet
Genre: Fiction

Suzanne Collins is sure to have some magical competition with this book! (Suzanne Collins is the author of the Hunger Games another good book)

The Crushes, by Pamela Wells

I absolutely loved it. I'd recommend this book to anyone. Four girls, four romance stories, it was magnificent. After I read it once I had to read it again. If you read it, you'll love it. I promise you that.
