Heartwarming and funny. I couldn't wait to read it through again.

The Catcher in the Rye by J D Salinger
The Catcher in the Rye

The Catcher in the Rye was good. It was very good, but it was unlike any other book I've ever read. It was a completely unique experience for me because, while the book was wonderful, I hated the protagonist. Holden was annoying and I couldn't stand him. However, that's what made the book good. Holden was real. I'm sure there's someone out there exactly like Holden and that's what made the book so amazingly good.

The Hunger Games (Hunger Games #01) by Suzanne Collins
The Hunger Games (Hunger Games #01)

brookerochelle, September 1, 2009

I read this book almost a year ago now and the moment I started it, I knew it was going to be wonderful. You never know what's going to happen next and it keeps you on your toes. There's just something about the book that just makes you want to keep reading and reading and reading. Even when I had finished, I knew it was going to be a hard year before I got to read the second book. I would recommend this book to pretty much anyone that loves a good story.

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
To Kill a Mockingbird

brookerochelle, August 6, 2009

I originally read this book for school a few years ago, but I was excited to read it, nevertheless, and I wasn't disappointed. It's a wonderful story that warms my heart every time I read it. This book embodies the phrase "curl up next to the fire with a good book". This book is perfect for every age.

The Final Warning: A Maximum Ride Novel by James Patterson
The Final Warning: A Maximum Ride Novel

brookerochelle, August 5, 2009

I hated this book. I know that sounds a bit harsh, but I really, truly hated this book. I was really excited to read it because the one before it (Saving the World and Other Extreme Sports) was wonderful! Even as I read it, I didn't think it was horrible. I mean, it wasn't amazing or anything, but it wasn't the worst book I'd ever read either. Then came the Epilogue (don't they always ruin things?). It was the worst ending (and I mean the WORST) I'd ever read and it completely ruined the rest of the book for me.
