Amazing Books You NEED to Be Reading!

Are you going to be bored over the President's week break? Here are some awesome book suggestions!

1) The Iron King by Julie Kagawa (series)

This book is about a girl who didn't feel like she belonged. She is teased at school and only has one good friend. Her father's mysterious disappearance when she was young haunts her. Soon, she discovers that a lot more is in store for her. Follow Meghan Chase through this fabulous book as she faces secrets, true love, and a danger she never could have imagined.

2) This Book is a Secret by Pseudonymous Bosch (series)

This book is one unlike any other. The narrator is anonymous, fearing that his enemies will find him. All of the names and places in this book are fake. Every bit of it, Bosch claims, is a true story. Watch as two young children meet their fate, to discover the ultimate secret of mankind.

3) The Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket (series)

Four young children are faced with the mysterious death of their parents. Life tests their resourcefulness and intelligence time and time again - for these children have terrible luck. They never know who to trust, and who will stab them as soon as they turn around. Read this book for some interesting situations and laughs - but be aware that luck is not with the Baudelaire children.

4) The Host by Stephanie Meyer

Two personalities are forced into a single body. In this futuristic romance, Melanie and Wanderer are forced to work together despite their differences. Soon, they are so mixed together that nothing is clear - who they love, what they want, and what they future will hold.

5) Wonder by R.J. Palacio

This story is from the perspective of many people, from young kids to high schoolers. August Pullman has facial anomalies that make him look different from everyone else. He is faced with being the new kid, being teased, and the regular trials and tribulations of entering middle school. He is growing up, still trying to show the world that he is simply an ordinary boy with an extraordinary face.

Note: These books may contain some romance (not much). Personally, I think these books are okay for ages 10 and up. If you are unsure, ask your parents first!

Please let me know what you think of these books, which you may read, or if you have already read any. I would also LOVE to hear any more book suggestions! :)
