    For the past year or so, I haven’t been able to find many books that I was so fully immersed in. Only three or so books can come to mind that I’ve been such in absolute love with this school year, so much that I was forced to put them down, that was until Cinder by Marissa Meyer came along. My sister, mom, and good friends had been recommending me this book for quite sometime, and they had a right to be recommending it. Cinder is a retelling of Cinderella but it certainly doesn’t feel that way but in the best way. Cinder is a sixteen year old mechanic who lives with her dreadful stepmother Adri, equally dreadful older stepsister Pearl, kind hearted younger stepsister Peony, and her hysterical droid IKO. Cinder is a mechanic who lives in futuristic New Beijing which is under the rule of the ill Emperor Rikan and his son, Prince Kai who all the girls fawn over in one way or another. There is something peculiar about Cinder- she’s a cyborg. Before you go “Ew cyborgs, this suddenly got so much more boring and unattractive,” being a cyborg in this time is like having prosthetics except it’s more like having an actual hand but it’s just metal, so Cinder is still technically human but her metal parts make her an outcast from society to those who know about her metal parts.The emperor is ill with a lethal disease in which there is no cure for yet but is very contagious as seen with the number of people in quarantine who are dying from this disease. One day, Prince Kai comes to Cinder’s mechanic booth in disguise so she can fix an old important droid which can under no means necessary be replaced with a new droid. Origins, identities, romance, and the dark side of politics are all uncovered in this thrilling action, science fiction novel which is the start of a four book series titled The Lunar Chronicles. Meyer takes a stunning spin on an old tale and breathes in new life to it for her debut novel. This would be recommended to Sailor Moon fans and those who want an empowering read that keeps you on the edge of your seat for the whole ride. A solid 4.7 out of 5 stars, this is one crazy joy ride you’ll want to get on.

    A great book that I think everyone should read is Life as we Knew it by Susan Pfeffer. It is beautifully written making a quick read. It is written as a diary told to be kept by the main character’s brother. The story is about a girl who’s life changes when an asteroid hits the moon knocking it out of orbit and causing lots of natural disasters. There is food shortage and no power. Money is scarce and schools are all closed. Her family’s only hope is that everything is back to normal. All though the author leaves you hanging off the edge of a cliff at the end, you can’t help your self from reading it again in hope that you forgot something. I hope someone can pick this book up and love just as much as I did.

    I’m Here to talk about Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. It’s a great read and let me tell you what it is about: So a paleontologist (Mr.Grant) and his Student (Miss Sattler) get talked to Jon Hammond to go to a Biological Park; “Jurassic Park” Full of Dinosaurs, But this power will Backfire…

    So this quarter I read the book I am Number Four by Pittacus Lore. Its about nine aliens that look exactly like us humans but have extraordinary powers like enhanced strength, running speed, and jumping ability. They are from the planet Lorien. Sadly their planet was invaded by mogadorians, an evil race of aliens that can disguise themselves as humans. The nine lorien are members of a society called the guard. They are only teenagers so they have been assigned a person each to guide them and help them train to use their powers.
    The main character is a teenage member of the guard named John Smith. Him and his guardian Henri move to Paradise Ohio to lay low so the mogodorians don’t find them. Each member is assigned a number from 1 to nine. They can only be killed in order unless their all grouped together. That’s why as soon as their ship landed on Earth they all had to separate. John settles in and makes a friend named Sam. Sam’s dad had gone missing one night and Sam thinks that aliens abducted him. John also meets a boy named Mark and let me just say that they don’t get along very well. John and the other members have to eventually face their biggest fears and fight for the fate of both Lorien and Earth. The reason why I picked up this book is because it was recommended to me. On a scale of one to ten I would rate this book a straight up ten. There are around 5 books in the series and Im currently on the third one which is called The Rise of Nine. Either a boy or girl could read this but It has some mild language and some gore. This book is like syfy and fiction. There is already a movie adaptation of the first book and it is amazing.

    My Quarter 2 read is “The Martian”. Its a book about an astronaut who was on of the first humans to walk on Mars. But now he may be the first person to die there. After an emergency evacuation the crew thought he was dead. So now he must make the most hostile environment known to man livable and wait for rescue.I give it 5 stars and an A+ grade.I Recommend this book to people who have parents that don’t mind them reading a bunch of swears and 6th and 7th graders.

    I recommend “Battle Cruiser” unfortunately I do not remember who this is by so please reply to this if you would like me to look into it. It is gripping science fiction book (that is not available at the school library) set in the future, the main character is a bit rebellious but always ends up making the right decision. (Note: this book is not for everyone it is a challenge to read as it was written for teens.) I like this book because it is a high action page turner with and bit of mystery.

    If you like mind reading and action that gets you sucked in then read The Ability by M.M. Vaughan!

    “How To Build A Robot Army” is a great book if you love robots and engineering.
