The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

In honor of the upcoming movie for this book, I am doing a review on The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. This book delves into the story of teen cancer patient, Hazel. She regularly attends Cancer Kid Support Group. During one meeting Augustus appears and changes the way Hazel is living her life. For some readers this book can be a bit of a hit or miss. I, for one, love the book and it had me in tears by the end. However it was a miss to some readers because the characters tend to make jokes about their disabilities and illnesses that might seem offensive to others. Overall the book kept a good balance of humor and seriousness. This book is quite interesting, therefore, as I would say with any movie adaptation, “Read the book first.” 8/10

Fangirl By Rainbow Rowell

Fangirl, by Rainbow Rowell, is one of the best books I have read in a really long time. Of course that might be because I’m a big “Fangirl” myself of Doctor Who, Sherlock, and several other things. For these reasons this makes the book very relatable to me. The book follows the story of Cath. She is attending college with her twin sister Wren. Wren has grown up and out of her fandom days and left Cath behind. Cath is still in love with the world of Simon Snow and continues to write her well followed fan fiction. She is confronted with several new things as she enters her first year of college and discovers the highs and lows of being on her own. This book had a few twists to it that I was not expecting and it was really interesting. It is something that I would recommend to any “Fangirl”out there. 9.5/10

 

The Secret Ingredient by Stewart Lewis

The Secret Ingredient, by Stewart Lewis, is an extraordinary book about the troubles of growing up and into who you are over the course of an exciting Summer. Olivia isn’t your average girl. She sticks to the simpler things in life and this story follows her through her first love, the search for her birth mother, and her love for food and cooking. She lives with her two dads who own a struggling restaurant called FOOD. She and her brother both try and earn money in order to help save the struggling restaurant. Olivia tries to earn money through a casting agency, despite her disdain for the glamour of Hollywood, and her brother by buying an ice cream truck. After finding an old cookbook with notes from the previous owner Olivia is led to insights about herself and she also learns that sometimes food is the one thing that can bring everyone back together.

This book kept a good pace and while it does take you on a few ups and downs it isn’t going to have you laughing hysterically one minute and sobbing the next. If you are looking for a good calming read I would recommend this book. 8/10

Duel with the Devil

Duel with the Devil

Author, Paul Collins, latest work, Duel with the Devil: The True Story of How Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr Teamed Up to Take on America's First Sensational Murder Mystery, weaves a narrative around two of America’s most infamous antagonists. Burr and Hamilton were both Revolutionary War heroes but also political and professional rivals. Collins’ book, set in New York during the year 1800, follows the trial of Levi Weeks, a man accused of murder. The murder of Elma Sands was one of the most sensational news stories at the time. Sands was found dead at the bottom of a well owned by Aaron Burr’s company. Levi, her neighbor, had business connections to Alexander Hamilton. Burr and Hamilton, each motivated for different reasons, come together to form the defense team of the accused man. Little do the two attorneys know that four years after the events of the Levi trail Burr would go on to kill Hamilton in a gentlemen’s duel. If you enjoy true crime you will enjoy Paul Collins newest book surrounding these two infamous patriots.

 

Fables

Are you a fan of graphic novels? Fabletown is a place where fairy tale characters live alongside regular New Yorkers. These characters once lived in a place far away but are now stuck living in our reality. The world of Fables is rich with complicated characters, romances, mysteries, politics, and violence. Bill Willingham created a humorous, and at times, dark world that will keep you guessing to the last page. This is not a series for children. Fables is now available in hardback. Seven of the planned eight volumes have been released and all seven are available through Shreve Memorial Library.

Hunger Games

The Hunger Games is the first book of a Trilogy by Suzanne Collins. It is based on an post-apocalyptic world and North America is no more as we know it. A new nation named Panem has formed and is divided into 12 districts with a capital. Each year, two "tributes" from ages 12-18, boy and girl from each district competes in "The Hunger Games" which is a fight to the death. This is punishment for the rebellion that destroyed the 13th district. The main character, 16 year old Katniss takes the place of her little sister in the hunger games. Peeta Mellark, a boy who once gave Katniss bread when her family was starving, also was selected to compete from District 12.  This is all I will say, you  will have to read the book to find out more. This book contains violence and strong emotions. The plot is excellent and it was what kept me reading all night. This book has many discusion points, but it also is about being true to yourself and not submiting to society's expectations.
 

The Alchemyst at a glance

I personally have read half the series and it has me hooked because of the great historical fiction/fantasy mix. Alchemyst is a book by Michael Scott that challenges everything we were taught as children. It begins with the day book of one Nicholas Flamel who is said to be immortal. From there we meet the twins, Josh and Sophie Newman and the evil Dr. John Dee as the twins and Nicholas try to escape him. As they travel the twins begin to learn and unleash their own hidden potential while Nicholas trains them in Magic. It is a fast-paced story that will keep you guessing until the very end of the series. It is a great book filled with historical figures and  legendary creatures & beings from beyond the limits of our imagination and our darkest nightmares. One of the historical figures mentioned in the book is Dr. John Dee a real-life mathematician who served in Queen Elizabeth I's court, he also was the original 007 because he signed his namee with 007 meaning he was Queen Elizabeth's eyes.
 

A Good Day to Die Hard

The Roy Rogers of the NYPD is back and he says Do svidaniya to the USA and is Yippe-Kai-Yaying across Mother Russia. In the fifth title of this franchise both of John McClane's children are all grown up but it seems John Jr. is more like his dad than his dad knows. John finds out that his son is on trial for murder in Moscow so he travels to Mother Russia to attempt a rescue. There he goes from fire fight to car chases to irradiated cities fighting alongside his CIA agent of a son so that they prevent nuclear war and return to the home of the brave in one piece. This movie is a shining example of the award-winning action packed movie franchise that we have come to love and I highly recommend watching this latest battle against terrorists that John McClane wages. Since the 1980s this franchise has given us a true American action hero and it is still doing a bang-up job of it in the 21st century. So I hope you enjoy it!
