Book Recomendations

The Dark Hills Divide by Patrick Carman

What lies beyond the walls?
Twelve year old Alexa Daley is spending another summer in Bridewell with her father. She looks forward to exploring the lodge where she stays each year, with its cozy library and maze of passages and rooms. She’s also eager to finally solve the mystery of what lies beyond the immense walls that were built to keep out an unnamed evil that lurks in the forests and The Dark Hills–an evil the townspeople are still afraid of.
As Alexa begins to unravel the truth about what lies outside the protective barrier she’s lived behind all her life, she discovers a strange and ancient enchantment. Armed with an unexpected new power, Alexa exposes a danger that could destroy everything she holds dear–and change The Land of Elyon forever.

The Ravenmaster’s Secret by Elvira Woodruff

London, 1735
Eleven year old Forrest Harper lives with his family at the Tower of London, where he helps his father tend the ravens and guard the prisoners. When vicious Scottish Rebels are captured, Forrest can’t wait to stand guard–this is his chance to prove his courage and loyalty. But the Harpers’ prisoner turns out to be Maddy, a Scottish Rebel’s daughter. Even though it’s the last thing Forrest wants to happen, he and Maddy become friends. When she is slated for execution, Forrest is faced with a horrifying choice. He can allow his innocent friend to be killed…
…or commit treason by helping her escape.

The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan

The way he said my name sent a chill down my back.
Nobody called me “Perseus” except those who knew my true identity.
Friends…
and enemies.

Percy Jackson’s seventh-grade year has been surprisingly quiet. Not a single monster has set foot on his New York prep-school campus. But when an innocent game of dodgeball among Percy and his classmates turns into a death match against an ugly gang of cannibal giants, things get… well, ugly.
And the unexpected arrival of Percy’s friend Annabeth brings more bad news: the magical borders that protect Camp Half-Blood have been poisoned by a mysterious enemy, and unless a cure is found, the only safe haven for demigods will be destroyed.
In this fresh, funny, and hugely anticipated follow up to The Lightning Thief, Percy and his friends must journey into the Sea of Monsters to save their beloved camp. But first, Percy will discover a stunning new secret about his family–one that makes him wonder whether being claimed as Poseidon’s son is an honor,
or simply a cruel joke.

Evil Genius by Catherine Jinks

Cadel Piggot is a genius.
Okay, okay, I know what you’re thinking. It sounds like an Artemis Fowl rip off, right?
Wrong.
Cadel Piggot is a whole different category.
As he grows up, Cadel is always on the outskirts of life. His sharp mind and antisocial attitude toward people sets him on the fringes of society. He skips grade after grade, and is always smarter than the entire class, including the teacher. He is fascinated with systems, and will take them apart and put them back together again.
Near the end of High School, Cadel Piggot learns something huge.
His father isn’t who he thought it was.
His father is an evil genius, stuck in jail for numerous financial crimes.
This is when Cadel gets sent to Axis, a school for evil geniuses. But Axis isn’t entirely what it seems, and it might take all of Cadel’s skill to survive the year.
This book is perfect for any Artemis Fowl fan. It has many of the same elements, intruige, adventure, and, of course, insane levels of intelligence, but, at the same time, is entirely different.

    Girls are so better than boys as the articles prove but guys do play a big part in their lives.
    Great articles though guys; it was fun to read.
    You must’ve worked really hard!

    I am a girl, and I do a fair job of controlling my emotions (of course, I’d the girl that can watch several WWII movies and programs and not shed a tear, not feel any anger or pain or sadness, yet cries when I reach a sad part in a book….). I freak people out on a daily basis because I manage to stay blank-faced.

    We women can be emotional, but we do not base ALL our decisions on our emotions.

  7. Girls are so much better! And it’s guys who are all sexist! What’s that about our wild emotions? Who has to prove their masculinity every five seconds? Who smells like armpit half the time? Who wears their pants on da ground?  :D~YoshiP.S. I also want to know when the next FanFic competition is, if it’s not too much trouble. =D

  8. yeah, I’ve gotten much better, and I wanna try my skillz!

  9. that…was odd. it was a very good article and you gave so much proof for your cause,unlike the people who say twilight is better than harry potter and have not a wand to back it up. But, the thing is,girls are still better than guys. I could have done all that Mr.Fowl did and aren’t ALL elves emotionative creatures? and in recent times,women are becoming more involved in politics.take me for example.
    wait,what about there not enough woman writers? J.K. Rowling and me.and wait about 10,15 years and if you see the first name Jade in the news very often,that’s me.

  10. fanfiction contest? ohh sounds interesting…. i hate my phone, it doesnlt like this style of textbox so no advanced punctuation…. oh well. as i like to say, boys rock… but girls rule. anything you can do i can do better and all that. heheh. seriously though, id be all for a fanfiction contest…
