The Shadow Throne
by Jennifer A. Nielsen

View in Library Catalog



One war. Too many deadly battles. Can a king save his kingdom when his survival seems unlikely? I loved this book. It is full of twists and surprises, and I would recommend it to any boy or girl ages 12 and up.

The Martian
by Andy Weir

View in Library Catalog



The Martian is the story of a brilliant yet humorous astronaut botanist who was trapped on Mars when his crew had to escape a sandstorm, thinking him dead. Through a series of genius and yet incredibly dangerous risks, he is able to grow food and survive on Mars. This book is a brilliant and incredibly enjoyable read, and if you have seen the movie, the two are actually incredibly similar and true to each other. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys sci fi.

Take My Husband
by Ellen Meister

View in Library Catalog



Thinking her husband died in an accident, a wife thinks all of her problems are solved, but he is very much alive. Will she let him stay that way? Unfortunately I don't recommend this book. I was intrigued by the idea and story but it had a lot of talk about affairs as well as a few scenes I had to skip along the way. I was going to dnf it, but I was already more than half of the way through the book, and wanted to know the ending.

The Song Of Sourwood Mountain

A sweet and lovely story of found family and a marriage of convenience. I loved the characters and the children in the story took my heart. Ann H. Gabhart's stories pull at the heart strings and make you feel something special.

Good Omens
by Neil Gaiman

View in Library Catalog



Good Omens, by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett is about an angel and a demon who go the behind the backs of Heaven and Hell, and work with each other to stop Armegeddon. I really enjoy the humor throughout the book, as well as the amazing chemistry between the angel and demon. I would strongly recommend this to teenagers who love fantasy and humor.

Remarkably Bright Creatures

I wish I could read this book all over again! It was wonderful. It’s a story about 3 characters, one being an octopus, who are all intertwined in some way. It was a feel good read and I highly recommend it!

Rule Of The Aurora King
by Nisha J. Tuli

Lor continues her adventure with her enemy perhaps turned ally Nadir. We learn more about the world they live in and the magic, as well as some insights from the past. I loved this second book in the series and could not put it down. 10000% recommend.

Artemis Fowl The Last Guardian
by Eoin Colfer

View in Library Catalog



Our favorite boy genius Artemis Fowl vs our favorite evil genius Opal in a final battle to save or destroy the world. Opal has decided to reanimate some fairy warriors and unlock a spell to destroy all human life, and Artemis + friends have to stop her. Nice conclusion to the series, full of the same charm as the previous books: Opal is very dramatic and over-the-top with her antics which are very fun to watch, Artemis has several schemes to counter her antics, and Artemis's friends are trying to keep up on another life-threatening mission. Very entertaining and well-rounded characters, with a witty, omniscient narrator, and good pacing. Would definitely recommend (assuming you read the others in the series already).

Scythe
by Neal Shusterman

View in Library Catalog



This book wasn't what I was expecting at all. I've been recommend this book by two friends so I finally picked it up. The world Shusterman created here was fascinating to learn about, if not ominous. This book takes place in a futuristic world where humanity has conquered death and humans are immortal. With nanites in their blood, they feel no pain and heal exponentially fast. A sort of AI-adjacent entity known as the Thunderhead controls all law and knows everything. To combat overpopulation, special individuals known as Scythes are tasked with "gleaning" a set amount of people each year. Scythes are bound by no law and can choose to kill anyone and anyway theyd like. This book really makes you question morality, empathy, and what makes us human. Seeing the different Scythes and their methods of gleaning and their own philosophies were interesting. I enjoyed the two main characters and their journeys through this book- but it definitely took some time for me to warm up to them. I also wasn't the biggest fan of the romance since it felt like it came out of nowhere. Regardless, this is definitely one of the most thought-provoking YA novels I've read. I'm going to be thinking about this book for a while and will definitely check out the rest of the series.

Madam Bovary
by Gustave Flaubert

View in Library Catalog



A classic book, where a male author explains a rape away as a forceful seduction. The line of ' the cowardness that was characteristic of the stronger sex' cracked me up though. A tale where a woman has affairs, kills herself, and her daughter ends up poor and miserable. Worth reading solely for the author's deliberate attempt to remove romance and glamour from every day relationships, contrasting books with reality.
