As always, I have wanted to read this for a short time. So to avoid revision I dug myself into this! And it’s such a lovely thorough story, and that’s because of the joint effort from the authors! There writing put together just made such a beautiful and enlightening story! Shockingly it only took me a few days to read it, considering the size of it!
Beautiful creatures is about Ethan, a boy who starts to have strange dreams which always resolve around one person; a girl. When he finally meets this girl, Lena, it seems things start to fall into place and I don’t mean in a good way!
The thing with this book is you’re not sure if you want to read it because it’s just so big! You know that it’s going to take a long time. However, there is so much in this book it would be a crime to chop it down! It needs the pages otherwise it would be seen as a weak story! I also loved how it was set in a small town, which made it so much more interesting! Well, it made it more interesting for me because I live in a small town as well and completely understand that ‘everybody knows everybody’ kind of way.
One thing that was disappointing was that at some points during the book it seemed to go off of the main storyline, or what I thought it was because of the blurb I had read, all though blurbs can be misleading!
I think this book is brilliant. It’s a read that just calms you, and make you want to read more! And what makes it even better; it’s currently being made into a film! And from what I can see it’s looking pretty damn’ good.
I found this book in my local Waterstones. I mainly saw it because of how colourful and vibrant the cover is. And when I read the blurb I was definitely interested. However, with being poor at the time, I could not buy it! Although a trip to my local library came in very useful as a found a copy there! So fear not, if your skint just go to the next best thing; the library.
This is not forgiveness – It says it all in the title. Jamie can’t believe that dangerous and beautiful Caro has chosen him to be with her. Although Caro has other ideas about what her relationship with Jamie is. And then Jamie’s brother Rob gets thrown into the mix and that’s when things start to get technical!
I love how the three main characters were all linked together. Well you knew they were all linked in some way, but it was more interesting and had lots of twists due to how they were linked. That was good!
The overall idea I got from this book was that the cover made the book seem very mature, however when reading it the writing style didn’t seem to match up to it. It just seemed very childish, and was definitely different to what I’m used to. Also, the ending seemed to make the book a lot better, because of how shocking it was, even though we got a glimpse of it at the beginning.
Overall, I feel this is a good book, but I didn’t like it too much. It’s mainly because I have such a love for series or lengthier book. It just didn’t really what I liked! However, you may enjoy it! Just because it wasn’t my cup of tea doesn’t mean it’s yours!
When I first saw this book in my local library I was 11 years old, and I avoided it. Mainly because of the front cover – it freaked me out a bit. 4 years on and I can’t believe I didn’t read it. It’s a pretty good book, considering the theme’s it surrounds itself with. This book should be the endorsement for ‘It’s okay to be who you are!’ Or that how I saw it!
Uglies is about a futuristic world, where when you turn 16 you get to turn ‘Pretty’. When Tally’s friend Shay runs off to avoid the operation, Tally gets given a choice by the government; Turn her in and you get to turn pretty. If she doesn’t, she is to remain ugly forever. Will Tally given in to idea of being beautiful? Or remain loyal to her friends?
I absolutely love how Westerfeld created such different characters. When reading a book you obviously expect to see different characters, but with the concept of ‘Uglies’ and ‘Pretties’ you could just tell the difference between them. I also loved how simple the book is, but it’s got an effective and different idea behind it such as Uglies.
When I first started reading this it didn’t feel like a dystopian novel. There was some sort of essence which made it seem too normal. Another thing that was worrying was how could they make such a large book on such a small blurb? It just seemed that I had read the entire book within the first few chapters. However, that view was changed after I got a bit further into the book. Scott Westerfeld certainly had a few tricks up his sleeve.
Overall, this book is a fantastic read, and you should definitely give it a go. I wish I could say more, but the book says it all honestly.
I came across this book when me and my friends were doing a Waterstones rummage. We basically sit on the floor of the store, and look at the books on the bottom of the shelves, and see what looks good. That’s where I came across Entangled. It looked like an interesting read, and it had me wondering, why is this book so small? It’s only 372 pages, and yet it holds so much. How can that be possible?
Entangled tells the story of Grace, a girl who wakes up in a white room to find a load of paper and pens on a desk, and that writing everything down will help her understand why she is there. But by doing so she remembers all the pain and sadness she went through. Is it really worth it to learn the truth?
I think this book was an interesting read. It made me want to keep reading with its plot twists and constant mystery. I also loved how we only ever got to hear Grace’s past when she was writing it down. That really kept the suspense going. I also loved the ending. It was very simple, and interesting to read. However, I didn’t really understand the concept of the character Ethan. That was very confusing for me.
Overall, it’s a good and yet very strange read. I will recommend it to you, but be prepared for the confusion you will have once you’ve finished it.
I first heard about these books many months ago, due to all the excitement about finding out who our Katniss was. And after I did a little research and found out what the fuss was all about, I was hooked! And that was before I had even read the books. I then bought them as a little birthday gift for myself, and read them all in a space of a week. And what the best week of my life that was!
When Katniss’s sister Prim, gets reaped for The Hunger Games; a televised game where children aged 12-18 fight till the death, she takes her place and sees it as a death sentence. But she must fight with every strength inside her because of the promise she made to her sister. But there are no runners up for these games. Will she survive?
Firstly, I love Suzanne Collins for producing such a gripping, and beautiful book series. Why aren’t there any more books like these? I can tell you; and it’s called talent! And that’s something that’s rare! I mean, there are many talented writers out there in the world, but I believe when you can produce a book, that can actually change you once you read it, it’s incredible.
I love the simple idea of The Hunger Games, and that when you’re reading it, you can actually think ‘Maybe one day this will be us’ Just because that is the kind of world we live in, and we thrive for entertainment. I also love the characters and how they all fit together. For example, Prim and Katniss are complete opposites but, when there put together there just the perfect mix. I also love the setting for the book. The idea of 12 different districts, makes it a lot easier to picture and also shows how captured the people of Panem really are.
I could go on and on, about this book but that would take years because I love it so much! It’s a gripping read that will keep you wanting more, and also make you want to kill the author because of the misery she puts us through!
