BZRK is about a group of people who are trying to control the human brain. There is a group of people who are trying to stop them also. I especially liked the way they described being in people's eyes/ears/brains. It was disgusting but interesting. I also liked how they did the fights between the bots. The whole two people combined is cool too. I liked the people is the organization Berserk. The guy Caligula is very mysterious and awesome. All in all this book was a very good and thrilling one. I would definitely read a second book if there was one.

The Final Four

The Final Four are challenged with facing the toughest teams within the college league. This story was about the final four teams in a college basketball league. The story starred four characters: M.J, Crispin, Malcolm and Roko. My favorite character is M.J because he loves the game and is so dedicated to playing the sport. All the characters run into problems with their family and friends. The people throughout the book have to face their friends and I can to relate to that. I would recommend this book to all the basketball players, fans, or even if you are indifferent to basketball it is fun and action-packed book.

In Loss, Billy Ballard, a bullied kid with a crazy grandfather and overworked mom, finds that an agreement he made as a five-year-old will change his life forever. He had agreed to wield the weapon of Pestilence, also known as the White Rider of the apocalypse. Now, he has to get rid of it. Unfortunately, Pestilence is hiding inside his own memories. 

I thought that the book was well written, with a good sense of humor. The personal struggles Billy faced were ones I could relate to (apart from being the new Pestilence). He was bullied, and couldnt get up enough courage to face the things ahead. Those things happen to everyone. Some things became repetitive, but it was a good read on the whole.

Invisible Sun

Invisible Sun is a thrilling, action-packed novel, set on a futuristic Mars. The award-winning author is back with another fabulous book that will not disappoint. Whether he is jumping from buildings, fighting CorpCom commandos, or just trying not to die, Jacob Stringfellow, or Durango is a truly electrifying character. Plus, with Mimi, a smart, and a witty computer, programmed into the head of Durango, this book is sure to please. 

I would recommend this book to fans of the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and to people who love fast-paced, intense, adventure. Invisible Sun is the companion to Black Hole Sun, the first book in the Sun series.

Croak is about Lax Bartleby, who is a culprit at her school, thus making her parents send her away for the summer to her uncle's “farm” in the town of Croak in upstate New York. Except she won’t be milking cows this summer, she’ll be killing people! The book is funny and grabbing. The beginning and middle keep you turning pages. The end goes too fast and kind of falls apart. But it still leaves a cliffhanger. Thankfully there will be a second book. It is still a great read and I would definitely suggest it.

Rock On

RockOn is about a boy named Orion who is in an up-and-coming band that has yet to be named. His band has a chance to compete in upcoming Battle of the High School Bands. What I liked about the book is the way it was written to attract people who like rock music. I would recommend this book to people who are in a band or who like rock music.

Faery Tales and Nightmares

If you loved Wicked Lovely, don’t miss Melissa Marr’s new book: Faery Tales & Nightmares! In this thrilling collection of short stories, Marr includes similar heroes and heroines from her novels and introduces intriguing new characters and creatures. 

The stories range from light and airy to those you would expect to find in your deepest slumber. In her new book, Marr weaves the familiar themes from Wicked Lovely and combines them with eerie fairy tales. Each of the twelve stories is more spellbinding than the next, and Marr’s dramatic writing paints vibrant pictures in the reader’s mind. This is the book for anyone who can’t get enough of bone-chilling fantasy!­­­
