The Lost Code

The Lost Code is the first book in The Atlanteans series. It's based in the future, where Earth is so bad, everyone lives in domes. Owen is going to camp in one of the domes, and strange things begin to happen. He has weird marks on his neck and is starting to hear voices. Soon he becomes wrapped up in a mystery, and the world depends on him finding a code lost for centuries. This book was okay, but nothing exciting happened for the first half of the book, and the characters weren't well developed. But I would recommend it for people who like books about Atlantis.

Pegasus: The Flame of Olympus

Pegasus: The Flame Of Olympus just pulled me in from beginning to end. There is so much action! The Flame of Olympus is also very much like the Percy Jackson series because of the reference to mythology.

Emily (the main character) was inside her house during a very large thunder storm and heard a crash on top of her roof. She and her father live on the top floor of an apartment building. When Emily went up to the roof she saw a giant winged horse. Then she realized that the horse was Pegasus the Olympian. . . . Their adventure has MANY adventures attached to it and many more characters are involved but it all started out with Pegasus and Emily.

I highly recommend this book!

If you liked Divergent, you should read the sequel, Insurgent. Tris’ adventures continue with action that keeps you from putting down the book until you’ve finished. Insurgent is the second book in the trilogy, and I suggest that you start at the beginning of the series so you understand the book better. I really liked this book and I recommend it to fans of  The Hunger Games.

The Selection

If you liked Matched, by Ally Condie, you should read The Selection. It’s about America Singer, who’s chosen to compete against 34 other girls to marry the prince and become queen. I read this book in one day, and the cliffhanger ending leaves you hoping for a sequel. With action, suspense, romance, and life changing decisions, The Selection is a great book that I recommend.

Postcards from Pismo

How would you like being pen pals with an American solider serving in Afghanistan? In Postcards From Pismo, Felix, a ten-year-old boy, writes a letter to a solider for a class project and hopes he will write back. When Marcus writes back, Felix is really excited. I liked this book and couldn't put it down. Also, I thought is was cool how the whole story was written in letters, emails, and postcards.

Applewhites at Wit's End

Applewhites at Wit's End is a Penderwicks-like book, full of crazy goats, mysterious threats, and a wild plan to save the Apple-whites (plus Jack) from the world's end. It has hilarious characters, who come up with new, even more crazy ideas every chapter. With great laughs and vivid characters, Applewhites at Wit's End is a great book for all readers ages 9 and up.
