I am the Messenger by Markus Zusak*****

This book is extremely intriguing and pulls you in from the start. The main character is pretty easy to connect with and the other characters are interesting as well. I love the twist at the end when you find the true identity of the Messenger and how this all ties

Chosen by a Horse by Susan Richards*****

The book was amazing. I am not really into books much at all, but this one was different. Now to love this book as much as I did, you have to have a passion for horses. The book goes through lives greatest struggles and how sometimes you have to let

Winter Girls by Laurie Halse Anderson ****

I enjoyed this book a lot because it was a fast read. It kept me interested the whole time I was reading it. Since the main characters are in high school it was easy to relate to some of their struggles that come with being in high school. Not only could

Clockwork Prince by Cassandra Clare *****

Clockwork Prince is the second in the Infernal Devices prequel trilogy to the bestselling The Mortal Instruments series. I personally loved this book, I couldn’t seem to stop reading it. I often forgot that this book was set in 19th century London, it made talking about outfits a little confusing.

American Sniper by Chris Kyle ****

I read American Sniper by Chris Kyle. I first watch the movie based on the book and enjoyed it so I figured I'd enjoy the book. I started to read and didn't quite like it as much as I liked the movie and decided to try out another book. Over
