Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard

Reviewed By: B.K.

Pretty Little Liars was a very interesting book. As most people know, it is also a T.V. show. I found the book very intriguing. Some people may not like it due to the amount of the books in the series, which is 16 books. The reason you want to keep reading, and just read the whole series, is because you want to know who is the mysterious A, who has been sending threatening notes to four girls. You also want to keep reading it, to figure out who murdered their friend, Alison, who had disappeared three and a half years ago.

Why I Picked It Up: I picked this book up, because I was looking for a good book to read during winter break, a book that had a lot of novels in its series. I figured that Pretty Little Liars was probably the book I should choose.

Why I Finished It: I finished it because I wanted to know who was A, and who killed Alison. I am currently still reading the series, but am close to finishing it.

I’d Give This Book To: I would recommend it to people who enjoy a good mystery, because the book is about four girls trying to find out who killed their friend, and who is this strange A.

Twilight by Stephanie Meyer

Reviewed By: B.K.

This book is surprisingly very interesting. Usually you hear most people criticize this book, but if you actually try to read it, you will get addicted to it. This book has the perfect amount of action, romance, and adventure. Most people judge the book by its movie. But the movie isn't even close to the book. So I suggest you should go read it.

Why I Picked it Up: I picked this up because I had to do a project for English. I saw Twilight, and decided it was worth a try, because my sister is obsessed with it. And it turned out really good.

Why I Finished It: I finished it because it was getting so interesting, that I couldn't bear to part with it. So, I did what any good reader would do, and finished it!

I’d Give This Book to: I would recommend it to people like me, who enjoy fantasy and romance, to please read this book. It is BEYOND amazing.

The Selection by Keira Cass

Reviewed By: B.K.

I took this book like last week. Since I'm a really fast reader, I finished it in 2 days. It was actually pretty interesting. Basically, it takes place in the future. There is this new country named "Ilea" that is in America. America is gone. By this time, there has already been 4 World Wars. In Ilea they have a kingdom. When the prince comes of age, he must pick his wife from what is called the Selection. The Selection contestants are picked randomly. And that is where the main character, America, comes in. And that is all I can say without giving away the ending

Why I Picked it Up: The reason that I had checked out this book was because my friends read it, and they told me it was a really good book.

Why I Finished It: The reason I had finished was because I can never start a book and not finish it. Another reason I had finished it, was because it was fairly interesting.

I’d Give This Book to: I would recommend it to people who enjoy shoes such as the bachelorette, because The Selection has a very similar concept. I would also recommend this to people who enjoy romance.

Fallen by Lauren Kate

Reviewed By: B.K.

This is my favorite book EVER. It's about this girl who is blamed for murdering this guy she likes, so she has to go to this reform school called Sword and Cross. Then, she meets this guy named Daniel, and is drawn to him. But he tries to stay away from her for reasons unknown. I have to say this was so intriguing, that I had to keep reading it.

Why I Picked it Up: I picked this book up because I had originally read one of the author, Lauren Kate's, other books. I saw Fallen, and thought, "Why not?" and decided to give it a try. Best decision of my LIFE.

Why I Finished It: I finished it because this book turned out to be so fascinating. I had no idea what was going on in the prologue until pretty much the end of the book. It was AMAZING!!!!!!!!

I’d Give This Book to: I would recommend it to everyone. Even if you don't really like fantasy, and maybe like romance a tiny bit, just try it. It has amazing story elements, and I think that anyone could love this story as much as I do.

Delirium by Lauren Oliver

Reviewed By: D.T.

In a dystopian future, love is not allowed. It is considered a disease, so when people turn 18, they have a procedure to remove love from their brain. Lena believes that love is bad, until she meets Alex. Now she realizes how wrong she was about everything. So, she decides to do something about it.

Why I Picked it Up: I was looking at the shelves for a good book and I thought this looked interesting.

Why I Finished It: I wanted to see what Lena and Alex did.

I’d Give This Book to: Anyone that likes romance and action.

Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard

Reviewed By: L.D.

Mare Barrow is a Red in a world where the Silvers have all the power - and powers. When Mare unexpectedly reveals she has powers, too, the Silvers will do anything to keep it quiet, including betrothing her to the Silver prince under a false identity. They can't afford to have it known that there may be Reds who might be more powerful than they are. Mare has to choose whether to go along with the deception and betray her people or be killed. Who can she trust; what will she do?

Why I Picked it Up: It is the Abe selection for the YLP book discussion group at the Library.

Why I Finished It: At the beginning it seemed very much like a mash-up of The Hunger Games meets The Selection. That's not a bad thing, but it's been done already. BUT as I got into it, there were some surprising twists and turns to the plot. The "who can she trust" part is a little predictable, but on the whole it was a good story, ending at a good point for the series to take off.

I’d Give This Book to: Anyone who enjoyed The Hunger Games series and/or The Selection series.
