Small God By: Terry Pratchett

The book was a comedy of measure. I do think that one of the gods is a turtle (the one eyed turtle).


Blue is for Nightmares By: Laurie Faria Stolarz

This book is a mystery that keeps you thinking. What do the dreams mean? Who is going to kill her friend? Why do they want to kill her? You will find out if you read.


Ham on Rye By: Charles Bukowski

Ham on Rye is all about Charles Bukowski's alter-ego. "Henry Chinast," who grows up druing the Great Depression, has an abusive father. Very sad, but with a good ending. Read it.


Uglies By: Scott Westerfield

Set in a future where everyone is pretty ,but as Tally is discovering that does not mean on the inside.
And when everyone is pretty, no one is.


Interview with a Vampire By: Anna Rice

Awesome plot. Like a talentined Stephanie Rice! But very slow and very heavy, emotional stuff so taht if you read for too long, you'll feel emo for a while. About a vampire's struggle with his own killing nature, and he's trying to reconcile himself with it. Good book, great plot, totally recommended!


My Sister's Keeper By: Jodi Picoult

Anna is a "designer baby" made to be genetically the same as her older sister who has Leukemia. When she's 13, she chooses to be medically emancipated from her parents. The plot is so intriguing and makes it really interesting. The author makes it that you cannot stop reading because you're constantly asking more questions. Great read!

Lord Loss By: Darren Shan

This is about a boy who's family is murdered and he must go live with his uncle and discovers that a curse was placed on his family causing a child of every generation to become a werewolf. This boy learns of the demon world and a demon lord, Lord Loss. Lord Loss is the only creature obtaining the ability to lift the family curse. Very gory and descriptive.
