Title: Granny
Author: Anthony Horowitz
Pages: 170
Basic Rating: 3/5 1/2 ( i really liked it)
Storyline: 3/5
Characters: 3/5
Cover: (I really love the cover)

My Thoughts: Well the two main points that drew me to this book was first the cover. The bright yellow and the innocent little old lady standing alone, but with her true character glaring behind her in the shape of a monster. I loved it. Plus the lady reminded me of my granny in a little way of size and oldness. The second way was the story line. Really never heard of the old grandma as the evil villain, so that's what made me interested at first. Reading, the descriptions and portrayals are so graphic and good that it is a little gross at times. The characters were definitely Horowitz's own. The ignorant and uncaring parents, poor lonely Joe, and Innocent but really not Granny. The story progressed really well and i enjoyed it very much. Would really suggest it, its a nice short read. It only made me love my grandma even more. Just hope their really isn't a secret world of hateful Granny's. That wouldn't be good.

Plot: Jordan Warden (or better known as Joe) is not happy nor loved, he is rich and has pretty much anything he could ask for (if his parents remember) but he isn't happy. His parents are too into themselves to care and to make things worse they didn't want him in the first place. He has a grandmother that he really never understood, sure she was not bad in an open way to him but she just doesn't act like a grandmother should. She is not only a bad granny but also physically gross. Sagging skin that is just not normal, a huge mole living right on her chin, yellow false teeth were just the beginning of things. Kissing her was just repulsive! As most people think she is just a dotty old lady who has no evil in her and is better to think of with no sense within her anymore like many other old people. But one day Joe figures everything out, every lie and deception he had grown up on. And he sees it, a wicked glimmer in her eyes, she is no dotty woman.

Joe's next for her and she will get him unless he can stop her first.

Author: Ally Carter
Pages: 236
Plot: "After staking out, obtaining, and then being forced to give up her first boyfriend, Josh, all Cammie Morgan Wants is a peaceful semester. But that's easier said than done when you're a CIA legacy and go to the premier school in the world. . . for spies.
Cammie may have a genius I.Q., but there are still a lot of things she doesn't know. Like, will her ex-boyfriend even remember she exists? And how much trouble is she really in after what happened last semester? And most of all, why is her mother acting so strangely?
Despite Cammie's best intentions to be a normal student, danger seems to follow her. She and her friends learn that their school is going to play host to some mysterious guests- code name: Blackthrone. Then she's blamed for a security breach that leaves the school's top secret status at risk.
Soon Cammie and her friends are crawling through walls and surveying the school to learn the truth about Blackthorne and clear Cammie's name. Even though they have confidence in their spy skills, this time the targets are tougher, and the stakes for Cammie's heart- and her beloved school- are higher than ever."

Title: Alex Rider, Crocodile Tears
Author: Anthony Horowitz
Pages: 385
Plot: "Alex Rider has spent the past year turning into someone he never wanted to be. No teen should have to endure a sniper's gunshot wound, hand to hand combat with people twice his size, and the cruelty of men intent on killing thousands of innocent lives. Yet this is the role Alex has reluctantly accepted.
Until Now.
All Alex wants is a normal life back at school. There is more than enough suffering in the world without Alex being part of it. And yet, not coincidentally, it's that suffering that keeps drawing him back to his life as a spy. Suffering is a business like any other.
And it's about to cash in like you've never imagined."

Thanks for reading this far-

Open Book: Granny

Open Book: Painting a smile with words. Hopefully. Nothing is better than a good book with the right words

Title: Granny
Author: Anthony Horowitz
Pg: 37
"The fact of the matter is that the worst thing about parents is often their parents. That's certainly where they get their most rotten ideas."

Pg: 169
"If you're kind and cheerful when you're young, you'll be kind and cheerful when you're old. . . only more so. Old age is like a magnifying glass. It takes the best and the worst of you and magnifies them."

Thought they were funny and true.... Thanks for reading
