    maddyp18's book review was featured in Monster High/Ever After High: The Legend of Shadow High.
    Have you ever read Ever After High? What about Monster High? If you've read and loved those books you NEED to get The Legend of Shadow High. The Legend of Shadow High is a mix of Ever After High and Monster High, and you'll love it just as much or more than you loved the other two. When the Evil Queen escapes her mirror prison and starts to investigate a mysterious place called Shadow High, kids from Monster High and Ever After High must work together to stop the Evil Queen before it's too late. The Evil Queen is in over her head, and she doesn't realize what will happen to the World of Stories if she joins all the different lands together. Will Draculaura, Frankie Stein, Raven Queen, and Apple White be able to stop the Queen before it's too late or will their world crumble to pieces? I really enjoyed this book, and it's a great fantasy read for younger elementary school kids. One unique thing I really enjoyed about this book was how it was written like it was being narrarated by another character in the story (Brooke Page) and how Brooke could 'talk' to you at the bottom of the page in the margins. I recommend to read Ever After High and Monster High before you read this though, so that everything makes sense. All in all, you will love the memorable characters in this book, and you won't be able to put this book down until you've finished it. I hope you enjoy!

    snicker9's book review was featured in Sense and Sensibility (A Penguin Classics Hardcover).
    Sense and Sensibility is the story of the Dashwood sisters, particularly focused on Elinor and Marianne and their various romances. Elinor was my favorite character, because I am able to relate most to her. One of my favorite parts of the book is the relationship between the two sisters, and the differences and stark contrast between them. Yet, they still have that connection and confide in each other. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars, and I would recommend this book to romance booklovers and Jane Austen fans. I do not think it is a book that is meant for, or interest young readers.

    snicker9's book review was featured in Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations.
    This book lives up to it's title. It inspires you to "Do Hard Things". This book encourages young people to go beyond what is expected of teenagers today, to "rebel against low expectations". The fact itself that when this book was written, the authors were teens is a testament to the book itself. I liked that the way the Harris brothers proved their point, and encouraged, was through different types of stories. For example, in some areas they would quote Bible verses and connect how they tie in to every day life. In other places they would give modern day examples of teens who were inspired, and did hard things and give personal stories and anecdotes. One of my favorite messages in the book is that hard things can look different for everyone. For some people, it can be starting a blog or a mission group to build wells overseas. For other people it can be playing the piano in public, or making an effort to get along with a sibling. It doesn't matter how big or small it is. What matters is that you do the hard thing. I would definitely recommend this book to all pre-teens and teenagers. Although geared specifically towards adolescents, it would also probably be a good read for adults. I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.

    maddyp18's book review was featured in Kid Authors: True Tales of Childhood from Famous Writers (Kid Legends).
    If you like to learn about the authors that wrote some of our favorite books, in an interesting way, this is the book for you. This Kid Authors book is all about the childhood of some of the authors we know and love, told in an interesting way. For instance, did you know that Jeff Kinney (he wrote Diary of a Wimpy Kid), based his books off of read life experience being the middle child? Also, did you know that Beverly Cleary struggled to read growing up? Roald Dahl even based his book "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" off his love and fascination of candy as a child. There are so many interesting facts in this book, and many exciting stories, too. With great illustrations and funny quips, this fiction book is a must-read!
