THE HUNGER GAMES MOVIE!

The Hunger Games movie comes out in thirteen days! I wonder if the book will be better than the movie or vice versa. Even if it is I still have high hopes for the movie. My mom and I are going on Friday night and are going to have some “Peeta” bread :D. Who is your favorite Hunger Games character? Mine is Boggs (he is in Mockingjay). I cannot wait for the movie!

SIR MIKE by: Robyn Hood Black illustrated by: David Murphy

 Sir Mike does a check of his “kingdom” very often and today there might be trouble. :) This si a short, little book, only 31 pages. Sir Mike is a Scholastic Rookie Reader. Parents, there is a word list in the back of the book. This book was what my mom would call cute. It is a great bed-time story. I like how it rhymes. I give Sir Mike 4 out of 5 shields. This book has a great ending!

CATCHING FIRE by: Suzanne Collins

 This is the second book of the Hunger Games Trilogy. As the tension grows in Panem, Katniss Everdeen is thrown back into the Hunger Games. Just like in The Hunger Games book, I don’t want to give you much of a summary because it will give a lot of things away. This book has a lot more drama than the first book, but it really fits into the setting. There are tons of huge surprises around every corner. It is cool how Katniss has such a deep and troubled character, it seems as with every decision something new appears. I give Catching Fire 5 out of 5 shields. This book keeps you guessing the whole time! WARNING! This book also has a lot of violence, gore, and a little bad language! It was on the edge with my parents whether I would be allowed to read this book.

THE HUNGER GAMES by: Suzanne Collins

 Katniss, a fourteen year old, finds herself at the 74th annual Hunger Games; ready to fight to the death with 23 other “tributes” for food and for their life. Can she survive? The reason my summary of this book is so short is because the author has so many twists and turns put in that I don’t want to give anything away. This book had me hooked from the very start. Suzanne Collins puts so much detail and emotion into this book. I give The Hunger Games 5 out of 5 shields. This book is one of the best that I’ve ever read. WARNING! The book is technically classified as young adult. You might want to check with your mom or dad whether you can read it or not. The reason it is young adult is for the violence- there is a ton of it, gore, and some swearing. My mom read it first and said I could read it, but it was on the borderline of what she would normally let me read. I tagged it for 12 and up. It is still a great book! The Hunger Games is the first book in The Hunger Games Trilogy.

Here is a heads up about the Hunger Games movie: It comes out on March 23. I’m so excited! I would highly recommend that you read the book(s) before the movie. I think I might have Peeta, oh, I mean pita bread with dinner that night.

THE AKHENATEN ADVENTURE by: P.B. Kerr

  Strange things have been happening to John and Phillipa, but when they have their wisdom teeth pulled out, the strangest of all happens, they get visited in their minds by their uncle Nimrod. He tells them that they should visit him in London instead of going to summer camp. The kids go home and they tell their parents that they want to go to London and surprisingly their parents agree. When they get to Nimrod’s house they realize that they may not be just human! I loved this book from the start. It had really great writing and the storyline was awesome! In one part you think that the book is over, but the author comes back with some really cool stuff. This book is great for people with an interest in ancient egyptian history and magic or just someone looking for a good book. The Akhenaten Adventure gets 5 out of 5 shields.

EDGAR THE EAGLE IN DO YOUR BEST by: Sheila Hairston illustrated by: J. Cecil Anderson

 Edgar is so excited about the eagle flying show. He practices and practices until one day he breaks his wing! How will he ever be able to compete? This book was good for teaching people about not giving up and trying your hardest. I got to meet the illustrator and he signed a copy of the book for me. Their are some cool facts about eagles inside. Edgar the Eagle gets 4 out of 5 shields. This book really was geared toward younger  readers, but the message was good for everyone.

SEA CUTTER: BOOK 1 IN THE CHRONICLES OF NATHANIEL CHILDE by:Timothy Davis

 When Nat’s mother goes to Maine and his father presumed dead he is left all alone. Nat’s friend Wayland comes over one afternoon and has a huge sea chest. Nat immediately recognises it as his father’s. They open it up and it has a mysterious message. Nat opens a case meant for his mother and finds a huge pearl. He thinks that it is a clue that his father is  on an island that has never been found, Perlas Grandes. Wayland suggests that they search for Perlas Grandes on his boat, the Sea Cutter. Nat gets excited, but Wayland ruins it by saying that he has to get permission from his mother to go. Nat soon finds a way around it, but what will he do about the deadly stowaway onboard the Sea Cutter? This was my first e-reader book! There was a little violence(someone gets stabbed), but I think a 9-year-old could handle it. This book reminded me of Treasure Island a little bit. I liked how in one part(I’m not telling you which) a character reappears from the beginning.  It had a ton of twists and turns with some cool nautical stuff. Sea Cutter get 4 out of 5 shields. Here is a link to Mr. Davis’ website www.timothydavisauthor.com/.

I DON’T TALK FUNNY, I STUTTER by: Andre L. Sharp Illustrated by: Ivy Marie Apa

 Andy is excited about moving into his new neighborhood and meeting new friends, but he is also a little nervous because he stutters. Andy soon meets Alex. Will Alex accept Andy’s stutter? I thought this book was great for teaching kids about not teasing kids with a stutter and making kids with a stutter feel accepted because we are all different and that’s what make us special. Andre told me that he based the characters on him and his son and that the reason he wrote this book was because he was teased in school because of his stutter and he didn’t want other children to go through that. I Don’t Talk Funny, I Stutter gets 5 out of 5 shields.
