This is my book review of Lord of the Rings, by J.J.R Tolkien!
Lord of the Rings is a trilogy about a Ring that needs to be destroyed.
The Ring is made by the Dark Lord Sauron, who is controlling a huge land called Mordor, the Land of Shadow. To defeat Sauron and Mordor, Frodo Baggins, a Hobbit, has to destroy the Ring in The Crack of Doom, the place were The Ring was made. To do this, there is a big journey ahead of him, and problems, big and small, to overcome.
The Lord of the Rings is a fantastic trilogy which I love, and I hope you will love too. The book has no inappropriate scenes in it, but of course it is an adult book. It is quite thrilling, so if you can’t stand danger with very strange and gross creatures. It is really adult compared to Narnia, but Lord of the Rings is a very good book. If you can handle Narnia, than you might tackle Lord of the Rings. I recommend it if you feel if you can handle ‘Orks”. I enjoyed it, and I will never stop reading it every-so-often.

I’m reading LotR currently, and I like the wordy-ness. It gives me a bigger vocab, plus it’s a really fantastic book in general.

I recently read The Eon/Eona series I personally did not like this series it was very poor.
I also love a series I have started reading called the Hardy boys. These are very similar to the Nancy drew series.
I also have been finishing the books in the Nancy Drew series. Very enjoyable mystery series.
For a while now I have been reading a series called Dear America. Anybody heard of it? They are diaries of young children in different events in history. I wound recommend these books to someone who enjoys Historical fiction.
This week I found I brand new series I sincerely enjoy it is called Marked by P.C. and Kristin Cast. This is an amazing series about a young girl who gets turned (or ‘marked’)into a vampyre! it is an amazingly wonderful story and most girls would enjoy reading this ficticious romance novel.

Book review for “Report Card” by Andrew Clements. I really enjoyed this book it’s about a girl named Nora, who is a genius; but nobody knows but her. She’s been upset that at her school, people are categorized by if they are the “smart kids”, or the “dumb kids”. Although she is one of the average kids, her best friend, Stephen, thought he was one of the dumb kids because he did poorly in a standardized test. To make Stephen feel better, she purposely gets all D’s on her report card. Want to know what happens next? Read the book, it’s awesome!

Book review for “Extra Credit” by Andrew Clements: A good book, pretty sad at some parts. I personally think it ends a little suddenly. There’s no conclusion or anything. It just stops. It is about a girl named Abby in America and a boy named Sadeed in Afghanistan. They are pen pals, but some people in Sadeed’s village don’t like America, which starts causing problems.
I love Clements ;u; I’ve read all his books except keeper of teh skoolz XD
Book review for “Ragweed” by AVI: It’s kind of an easy read, but a really good story! It is about a mouse named Ragweed who goes out to see the world. He goes to the city and meets friends like Clutch and Blinker. He also meets some nasty cats like Silversides and Graybar. You might think I’m crazy but I feel kind of sorry for Silversides! (You’ll understand when you read the book.)

I just finished the book Middle School: My Brother is a Big Fat Lier the third book in the series, the book is about Rafe’s sister Georgia who is now in the sixth grade and faces challenges due to the fact she is Rafe’s sister and performs at the dance. I can honestly say its quite interesting how we get an idea of what Georgia (Rafe’s sister) is like and what she has to go through since she is after all Rafe’s sister. Anyways, over all I highly recommend this series to any teenager. It is really good.

Book review for I’d Tell You I Love You, But Then I’d Have To Kill You: This book is about a teenage girl (Cammie) who goes to a boarding school disguised as one for snotty rich girls, but is actually for aspiring spies and agents. When Cammie falls in love with a boy from the outside, normal world, Cammie has to tell lie after lie to him to hide her special skills.
Book review for The Mysterious Benedict Society: This book follows Reynie Muldoon, a seemingly average orphan boy, who is actually a genius at solving puzzles. He meets three other special children through an interesting newspaper ad (Kate, Sticky & Constance) and the four go on a puzzling adventure to save the world.

Review for Gossamer: Gossamer is a book about a little something or other (they never really say what she is) and her teacher who go to their assigned house and give people good dreams. Part of their job is also to help recover sleeping people after nightmares. This books is phenomenal. Definitely worth a 5 out of 5 stars. I’m not really into happy books, but this one was amazing. Everything is so well worded and so interesting. Even when the story gets drab, you keep wanting to read on. I think it’s pretty good for all ages. It’s not too long and it’s not too difficult, but still captures the imagination of all readers! At first I expected a younger audience targeted, but nope! Just because it’s shorter doesn’t mean it’s not interesting.

Book review for Divergent: Divergent is a book basically based in a futuristic time. In the book, 16 year olds have to choose their future. whether they want to leave their family to do what they love, or to stay with them in their faction. Now you can choose just about any faction you want, but you should only be good for two factions. The one you’re already in, or a new one. But what happens when people have more than 1 faction after their test? Well, danger. Lots and lots of danger.
You have a good taste in books! I enjoyed this batch of books too!
