    This book really took me by suprise. It is a soft love story that takes place, in of course, a garden. Princess Adela is not the kind of Princess most people want her to be, she would rather spend time in the soil than in her duties. When her closest friend, the gardener, Garth, she comes al...

    This book is so so good! My favorite character was Fay. In this book, (pause: SPOILER ALERT!) Ms. Rapscott holds a school for daughters of busiest parents in the world. A box comes for the five daughters. Bea, Mildred, Fay, and Annabelle have no idea about things they need to learn, but Dalia's l...

    This was an amazing book! Rick Riordan did not disappoint. This book had a lot of cool moments even if they didn't include the old characters that much. I would recommend that you read the other Hero of Olympus book before reading this one. *SPOILER ALERT* This book was cool because it introduced...

    MEGA SPOILER ALERTS! (Warned you..) The thing is, I'm not big on science. Or movies. *collective gasp* I'm more interested in other things, and reading is one of them. When I first picked up this book, I had a lot of uncertainty and prejudice because well, I just didn't like any of the thing...

    While this book is below my grade level - way below - I actually found it to be amusing to an extent. This story is told through the perspective of Blizz Richards, a yeti who hangs around other creatures to study them. All of them have one thing in common : they can't be seen by humans. So when ...
