Book Review: The Dead and B..

Book Review: The Dead and Buried

I seem to be in the mood for ghost stories lately, according to what I've been reading the past couple of months. I picked up The Dead and Buried and assumed it was a ghost story and was glad to be correct. Jade is a teenage girl who has to worry about dealing with moving to a new school and a crabby stepmother who she can't seem to get along with. So when her little brother starts seeing the ghost of a girl who died in their house, it just adds to her problems. Not only that, but this girl is not […]

You know when you read a book, and everything seems so familiar? That a book you recently had read is JUST like the one that you are reading now, but in the back of your mind you keep thinking the other book did it a bit better?

Book View: Guardians of Ga&..

Book View: Guardians of Ga’Hoole

  Short and Sweet: The Capture is definitely one of those books that you don't see coming from a mile away. My first impression was that this would be a cutesy children's novel about owls. But truth be told, there is almost nothing about the novel that screams cutesy (the characters are a definite exception). And strangely enough, The Capture was a pretty dark novel… featuring owls. Truth be told, there is plenty here to please children as well as adults. And if you have not taken a peek into Soren's world yet, you really should. Final Verdict: The Capture was so much fun to […]
