I couldn't believe it, she's Dead. Wow its crazy and she was only 32 years old, its really sad to think about. Sort of like Heath L. he was also so young. There have been a lot of people famous dying this year. I still can't believe it, but its true and sad.
Author: Elizabeth Chandler
Basic Rating: 4/5
Cover: I really like the cover, i think its sweet and photography.
My Thoughts: Well let me say that i really loved this book. It was easy to read and so much fun to read, i don't mind reading it over and over again. It is short and that is the only thing that i am not so happy with but i loved it none the less. It is a Love-ish story Young Adult book, but it is comical too. I had both chicken skin and lots of laughing out loud. I love how Elizabeth Chandler wrote it and i love her style of writing. The dialogue was very good, and she through in a lot of funny lines. I really liked the plot, i am not into some YA books because of maybe the main character or because of the love triangle or the love interest or the corny way they fall for each other, but i really thought this was thought out well. It wasn't so hard to guess what was going to happen, but i was totally surprised by what happened at the end and some secrets in the book. Also it was a clean book and i really like that, i hate when their is a lot of swearing in it and a lot of sexual senses and if i might say so, this book was very cool to not have it in it. And last but not least i really like the characters they were real and believable and i think people like that, and also i think i can relate to the main character Hayley and her situation. She is not really the popular one, but her sister is and all the guys go for her. I know how it feels, and i guess the book gave me a little hope. :)
Plot: Theirs no denying it, she colors ever time she sees him. Theirs something about Flynn that drives Hayley crazy, and as she finds out its not only because he's beautiful on the outside but because he's sort of beautiful on the inside too. Well since she is the photographer of the school news paper theirs always time for plenty of close ups, and though he's cute she's not in love, its just a little thing she calls a "camera crush". Everything's just fine to stay the ways it has always been, but when he starts taking an interest in her sister, things go way to far, and the more she learns about him and the more easier it feels to talk to him shes in danger of falling for her sisters boyfriend.
Loved these quotes!!!
Author: Anthony Horowitz
Basic Rating: 4/5
Cover: 4/5 (my copy is Hard cover and even with out the sleeve i love the black cover with blue wording on the side)
My Thoughts: Well generally i have really high expectations of these books of Alex Rider by Anthony H. and again i have been happy and more than satisfied with the out come. I simply loved this book, great competition to my favorite, Snakehead. From the beginning the story has been action packed and as always i love how Anthony writes his story's, they are words of colourful descriptions and colourful characters. Alex and the rest of the returning characters were wonderful as always, and the new character were also brilliantly made even if they were not so brilliant themselves. Well i only wish the book went on forever and i really can't wait for the next couple books of the series and the next books of Anthony Horowitz's.
Plot: Alex is having so much fun just relaxing and hanging out with Sabina Pleasure and her parents, they have just a few more days in Scotland till they leave but that's OK he plans to enjoy them. For the past Year he has been used by the special forces of MI6, he has traveled the world though under not to pleasant circumstances, he has been shot at and shot, and so many other things that a teenager his age should not have to deal with. But since now he is letting himself realize that maybe he is done with all that and maybe MI6 is done with him, i mean they didn't even send a card. That is until things start happening, and maybe having a perfect normal life is harder to attain than he had once thought. This time Alex needs the help of MI6 and conveniently they have a small job for him that turns out to be bigger than any one lead him to think. And it just might be that its not exactly MI6's fault this time and it might be that Alex just has a way of drawing in trouble. On a flight to Africa this is his biggest mission yet!
