Review by: shipperprincess52

Stars- 5/5

Summary- Seventeen-year-old Audrey Rose Wadsworth was born a lord’s daughter, with a life of wealth and privilege stretched out before her. But between the social teas and silk dress fittings, she leads a forbidden secret life.
Against her stern father’s wishes and society’s expectations, Audrey often slips away to her uncle’s laboratory to study the gruesome.

Thoughts- This book was AMAZING!!! I couldn’t put it down. After I finished it, Stalking Jack the Ripper was all I could think about. I read this book almost two months ago and I still spend hours at thinking about this book and Jack the Ripper. I highly suggest it for everyone!

The Hidden Oracle

Review by: shipperprincess52

How do you punish an immortal?
By making him human.
After angering his father Zeus, the god Apollo is cast down from Olympus. Weak and disorientated, he lands in New York City as a regular teenage boy. Now, without his godly powers, the four-thousand-year-old deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he can somehow find a way to regain Zeus’s favor.
But Apollo has many enemies—gods, monsters and mortals who would love to see the former Olympian permanently destroyed. Apollo needs help, and he can think of only one place to go… an enclave of modern demigods known as Camp Half-Blood.

The Hidden Oracle takes place after The Blood of Olympus and around the same time as The Sword of Summer (Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, Book #1). It’s a really good book and it’s interesting to read a book written from a god’s point of view instead of a demigod’s. If you haven’t already read Percy Jackson and the Olympians, The Heroes of Olympus, and Magnus Chase , I highly suggest reading them before you read The Hidden Oracle.  Rick Riordan is an amazing author and The Hidden Oracle is just as good as all of his other books.

The Running Dream Review

Stars- 5/5

Summary- Jessica thinks her life is over when she loses a leg in a car accident. She’s not comforted by the news that she’ll be able to walk with the help of a prosthetic leg. Who cares about walking when you live to run?
As she struggles to cope with crutches and a first cyborg-like prosthetic, Jessica feels oddly both in the spotlight and invisible. People who don’t know what to say, act like she’s not there. Which she could handle better if she weren’t now keenly aware that she’d done the same thing herself to a girl with CP named Rosa. A girl who is going to tutor her through all the math she’s missed. A girl who sees right into the heart of her.
With the support of family, friends, a coach, and her track teammates, Jessica may actually be able to run again. But that’s not enough for her now. She doesn’t just want to cross finish lines herself—she wants to take Rosa with her.

Thoughts- It was really good. I love books like this. I liked how Jessica learned how to deal with her disability and how people supported her and helped her get through something that changed her life.

The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong Review

2800905

Stars- 5/5

Summary- My name is Chloe Saunders and my life will never be the same again.
All I wanted was to make friends, meet boys, and keep on being ordinary. I don’t even know what that means anymore. It all started on the day that I saw my first ghost – and the ghost saw me.
Now there are ghosts everywhere and they won’t leave me alone. To top it all off, I somehow got myself locked up in Lyle House, a “special home” for troubled teens. Yet the home isn’t what it seems. Don’t tell anyone, but I think there might be more to my housemates than meets the eye. The question is, whose side are they on? It’s up to me to figure out the dangerous secrets behind Lyle House… before its skeletons come back to haunt me.
Thoughts- IT’S SO GOOD! There were some parts that freaked me out though. Chloe’s relationships with the other characters are very interesting too. Some of them she hates and some she actually loves. I think it’s super cool that Chloe can see the ghosts. It was really creepy and overall awesome at the same time. I loved it.

My Legend Review

91yexv1m52l-_sl1500_

Legend is about this boy named Day who is a wanted criminal in the Republic, and a girl a girl named June who is a genius and a college student that has a pretty good life. Eventually their paths cross because June is on a mission to find Day and get rid of him, permanently. The book is told from both Day and June’s perspective. It takes place in the United States except in the future, where the country is split in to a Republic and the Colonies.

I would give Legend a 4/5 stars. It was really good but I just didn’t like a few things in the plot. But over all Marie Lu is a wonderful author and Legend is a great book. Legend is the first book of a trilogy. The next two books are call Prodigy and Champion.
