Alex and Conner must brave the magical world together so they can get home safe and sound. Soon they are on a dangerous adventure meeting all the characters in the stories they grew up reading and some of them aren't what they thought they would be. Can they brave the world and get home? I highly suggest this book to anyone who loves fantasy with hints of comedy mixed in.

    ginevraweasleyliked a comment in The Penderwicks: A Summer Tale of Four Sisters, Two Rabbits, and a Very Interesting Boy.
    The Penderwicks was a very interesting book. It is not the type of book I usually read, but I still loved it. Usually I read books about adventure, mystery, magic, etc. This story was more classical, and set in earlier times. The Penderwicks was about a family of four girls who go on vacation for three weeks and meet a boy who needs help. He is about to be sent off to military school, and his mother is going to be married to a horrid man. Nothing is going his way, and the Penderwicks decide to help. There aren't really breath-taking scenes, and it is not an action-packed book. However I recommend this book, especially those who love classics such as Little Women and the Secret Garden. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars.

    ginevraweasleyliked a comment in Romeo and Juliet.
    For my English class, we have been reading Romeo and Juliet for the past month now. This play requires tons and tons of patience. It is very hard to follow, do to it being written in Shakspeare. However, at the core of this story, I feel it is a very intriguing tale that has potential. But so many times I find this story to lag on and on, and find it a little bit boring. I feel that it uses uneven story telling, and it's hard to follow what is actually happening. One thing I will say about this old as time tale is that it has excellent character development. Today, too many stories have way too many characters and they can't balance them all out. While there are instances I don't find myself invested in the story, not once do I question the characters actions. I always understand the characters point of view, and why they do the things they do. I get why Romeo kills Tybalt, and why Juliet doesn't want to marry Paris. That is perfectly clear throughout the story. I know that this play was published in like the 1500's, and that it's important to know about. However, for it's time, I feel that this was probably very advanced. So in the long run, Romeo and Juliet is something you are probably going to have to read some time. I'm not saying that I didn't enjoy it, but just too many times I find myself drifting off. It's up to you if you like it or not, however I think that it was a semi interesting story that could have been a bit improved on.

    Okay, so this book is awesome! I just picked it up and started reading, and I fell in love! So, just a couple of things before my summary, I find it really disturbing that Juliet is only twelve! I know it's the time period and everything, but still! And Romeo is between 17 and 23, so, that's really... fun. Anyway... Romeo has this crush on Juliet, after, you know, talking to her for like, 2 minutes, so he goes to her house that night and calls up to her window, and turns out she likes him too! Except, Juliet is betrothed to the County Paris, and then there's this whole thing where Tybalt, Juliet's cousin, kills Romeo's buddy, so Romeo kills him. So then Juliet's family hates Romeo, and the Prince banishes Romeo. Now he can't be in Verona, so he can't be with Juliet. They concoct this elaborate plan, but then, as an end result, Romeo gets poisoned and Juliet ends up stabbing herself, so, kinda sad and morbid, but an awesome book!

Especially if you live in a place where your name is your destiny. Since he has half a name, he’s half his size. One day, he learns that he can spin straw into gold. Rump and his grandma are very poor. With his grandma sick, he has to do almost everything around the house. He spins tons of straw into gold to buy more food from the miller.

He told her if she could guess his name in three days, he would give Opal her baby. On the third day she got it right and everyone got what they wanted. My favorite part is when he met his aunts. My favorite character is Rump. He wanted to find his name. so he did. He wanted to save Opal. So he did. Rump is my favorite character because he wants to help friends. I recommend this book to anyone who’s ambitious.

    ginevraweasleyliked a comment in Rump: The True Story of Rumpelstiltskin.
    This story is about 12 year old Rump-who was only given half his name before his mother died. In his town your name is your destiny - and his name is a joke. Orphaned young Rump lives with his elderly grandmother and must work in mines to find gold like everyone else. Then Rump discovers that he has inherited his mother's ability to spin straw into gold - something that his grandmother hid from him. Rump experiments with his magic, but soon find that a price comes with it. Soon Rump is forced to go on a journey and find his name and try to fix the mistakes his magic has caused. This book is a twist on the fairy-tale Rumpelstiltskin. I found it very entertaining, and there were plot twists at every corner-even though I was familiar with the classic tale and knew the general outcome of the story. The author was very creative in how she stayed true to elements of the original, but also put her own spin on the story. I recommend this book to anyone who loves fairy-tales and even those who don't. This book is great for middle grade aged kids who love adventures and fantasy, although I believe older people will also enjoy it. Overall, I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars

    ginevraweasleyliked a comment in [(The End )] [Author: Lemony Snicket] [Sep-2012].
    The Baudelaire children are stranded once again, this time on an island with mystery hidden beneath the 'kindness'. The leader of this island knows that the Baudelaires are hiding something. What he doesn't know is that Count Olaf is hiding something too. He has an extremely deadly mushroom that he could unleash on the island at any moment. As they bide their time, they find out more about the island, and more about who their parents really were. They learn that the most important things are usually hidden. I felt like this book sort of ended in midair. It was very good, and very sad.

    ginevraweasleyliked a comment in A Snicker of Magic.
    This book is my favorite book eeevveer. It's about a girl named Felicity Pickle (or Flea Pickle, whatever you prefer) who's lived here, there, and everywhere, which is better then saying nowhere at all. Felicity, all her life, collected words. She sees them everywhere. Sometimes over people's heads, sometimes clouding around bags. She believes that the words around people's heads are what that person is thinking or feeling. One day her little family (Her mom, her little sister Frannie Jo, and Biscuit her dog) arrives in Midnight Gulch, where she immediately feels like there's a hint of magic. On her first day of school, she meets a boy named Jonah, whose ride of choice is a wheelchair. The two of them venture out and try to break the mystery of the almost-magic town, the shrouded Stoneberry brothers, and Felicity's mom's wandering heart. All before that wandering heart wanders away.

    ginevraweasleyliked a comment in The School for Good and Evil #3: The Last Ever After.
    This book has so many twists and turns. Tedros and Sophie? Or Tedros and Agatha? Merlin is so cool, and I wish I knew him. I just finished the book, and I couldn't believe how awesome it was. When you read "The Story of Callis and Vanessa", the whole thing makes sense. Earlier in the book I wondered if they were sisters and-ha!-I was right. The fact that Stefan loved Agatha, whom was stated as "witch like" and "ugly" is proof he always had a good heart. The sun was melting throughout the book, which means two friends are powerful. I love this book so much!! The best one in the series by 100,000,000,000,000 miles. I recommend it!!
