Great book

I think this book is a great idea. The City of Ember is about people who live in absolute darkness, except for the streetlights and the lights in teh house, and they often go out. The people in the city wonder out that if in time the...

Clockwork prince

Do you ever get that feeling where you want to finish something as quickly as you can, and you want to know the end of the story, yet it is SO good that you want it to just keep going forever? Well, that's exactly what happened to me when I...

Simply amazing

I read this book because of how much I loved the mortal instruments. At first I had my doubts, because usually when people write prequels, they are not as good as the others. But after some persuading from my friend, I thought that it sounded interesting. This book lived up...

I love this book!

I love Maria V. Snyder. I just thought I'd start with that. All of her books are so amazingly well written, and they are all set in a world of fantasy, magicians, magic and romance. All of the characters are fabulously well written. When I was...

Touching awesomeness

I loved how the plot in this book was so unpredictable, it made the book a lot more enjoyable to read, instead if it was just one of those books where you always know what is going to happen after the first chapter. I like it...

Graceling

I read both Graceling and Fire, but I really think that Graceling was the better of the two. I love all the characters. Katsa is an really great protagonist. She's so strong, independent and she hates being feminine, which I think is pretty great. I really like...

After I had finished City of Bones, the first book of this amazing series, I was begging my parents to let me get the second one. My dad finally said yes, but after nearly a month of waiting, my friend Cassidy just lent it to me instead. I finished the...
