Treasure Island-Treasury of Illustrated Classics Storybook Collection
By Robert Louis Stevenson
From my point of view this book is a bit difficult especially if it is written in old english. but i think this book is quite interestiing and i pretty like the story idea, though it is sometimes hard to follow.
By James Patterson, Chris Grabenstein
Does the name "Jacky Ha-Ha" ring a bell? It might if you've read Mr. Patterson's bestselling hit series, I Funny. But if you haven't, don't despair! This book was new, original, and I loved it all the more because it reminded me of Jamie Grimm (from the I Funny series) yet had a completely unique and different character, Jacky! What I absolutely loved about this book is the timeline it's set in; the 1990's. Sadly, nowadays you don't really get books that are set in the past unless they're thick history books that have been collecting dust for the last few decades; which is why I really enjoyed this book. Not set so far back in the past that I find myself completely unable to relate to Jacky, but set nicely a decade or two ago so that I can enjoy learning what her life was like. Overall, really entertaining, (plus I LOVE her jokes, her fiery spirit, and her acrobatic abilities *wink*), heartwarming, and it definitely makes me dying to read the next book if this turns out to be a series!
The Letter for the King
By Tonke Dragt
So it turns out that there was a letter, and there was a king. Three feudal kingdoms, complete with knights and all that: EVIELLAN, DAGONAUT, and UNAUWEN. They are the kingdoms in the book, and Eviellan, as you can see from the spelling, is evil. Or at least, it is ruled by evil humans. Tiuri, a native of The Kingdom of Dagonaut, named after the ruler, King Dagonaut, is going to be a knight. Wow. Knights have cool armor, don't they. But first, he must reflect upon the duties of a knight, but his concentration is broken by a mysterious person banging on the door and asking to be let in. The human is a squire, and he tells Tiuri to deliver a strange and scary letter to a knight, one with a white shield and black armor. The knight then tasks Tiuri with an arduous task, to deliver a letter all the way to Unauwen, before dying a horrible death because some Red Riders, horsemen from Eviellan wearing red armor have mortally wounded him. "My feet are going to be tired." Tiuri thinks, and then he takes the man's black horse, which he gifted to him, and rides on. A quest has begun, it seems. So, I shall now rate this book. Laura Watkinson did a great job translating the book. (It was originally in Dutch.) The book has an old-fashioned style, so some readers may not want to read it maybe. The descriptions are nice, and it is filled with action in most parts. However, the book was not very deep; there was character development, but they could have more character. Overall, people who wish to read classics and/or fantasy will like this book
The Sun is also a Star
By NICOLA YOON
This book is as bright and beautiful as the stars in the night sky! The Sun is Also a Star is narrated by Daniel and Natasha, two characters with very different personalities. While Daniel is poetic and believes in the power of dreams and love, Natasha thinks scientific facts and a reliable, structured life are enough. But when they meet one fateful day in New York City, their lives are changed forever by each other. The author, Nicola Yoon, has always been great with representation in her books, and this novel doesn't disappoint: The Sun is Also a Star is racially diverse and explores unique life situations, such as Natasha being an illegal immigrant living in the United States. The main thing I disliked about the book was that, even though there were 300+ pages, the story is just one day of Daniel and Natasha's lives. And in just those 24 hours, Daniel and Natasha somehow fell in love and knew they were meant to be. The point of the book was to justify "love at first sight," but it just wasn't understandable to me and often seemed cheesy. Luckily, Yoon is a skilled enough writer for the story to not be excruciatingly slow. I was still able to enjoy the story. This is definitely a very real story about how nothing is ever predictable. I would recommend it to teen readers looking for romance and rumination!
The Summer I Turned Pretty
By Jenny Han
The Summer I Turned Pretty is one of the most amazing books I've read this year. Belly is finally going to be old enough to fit in with Conrad, Jeremiah, and her brother. Every summer she expects Conrad to notice her, but he never did. This summer, Conrad changed completely, he starts to smoke and stops talking to everyone, but so did Belly, she became pretty and her whole summer becomes out of control. I think my favourite character will definitely be Jeremiah because he's very friendly, humorous, and is always there for Belly to be her best friend no matter what. Whenever Belly is feeling down, he is there to solver her problems. I also love how the author uses many throwback chapters to let people know how much they have grown and to let us see what memories made Belly the person she is today. People should definitely read this book, Belly faces many problems that teens today can also experience, such as crush problems, puberty, friendship, and mostly growth. If you've read To All The Boys I Loved Before also by Jenny Han, you will love this book for sure!
