Standard

 Featured imageThis book is about: This book is about a fox whose name is Isla and her brother Pirie, who were best friends before they could see. One day Isla is returning to her den after finding some berries to bring home, she turns the corner to her den, but stops short. Her den is in flames. And surrounded by strange foxes. Isla gasps, a tiny little noise, but one of the foxes hears it. She turns around and her one eye falls on Isla, the other eye an emtey pit of darkness, Isla backed away, then ran, thinking Pirie must be out there somewhere.

My scale of awesomeness: I really liked on the inside cover where it said: ” I am fearless, I am friendless, I am fox “. I think the book has this mysterious feel to it, always being like rumbling along and then its like BOOM, big surprise! This book actually isn’t out yet soooo I’ll tell you the date its coming out: September 29 2015!  OOOOOO, I can’t wait for it to come out so EVERYBODY can read it! On a scale of one to ten I would say this was at least a twenty, if not higher! :)

Book of the (Hopefully) Week: The Ice Dragon by George R.R. Martin

Book of the (Hopefully) Week: The Ice Dragon by George R.R. Martin

Featured image What the story is about: This book is about a girl who is born in the middle of the biggest freeze anyone can remember, so naturally she is what I call a winter child, meaning she is never cold, her skin is cold, she rarely smiles and she never cries. At the age of four she made friends with a ice dragon, at the age of five she took her first flight. Ice dragons are unrideable, untamable monsters that bring a long bitter winter, or so everybody thinks.

My scale of awesomeness: This book is above the universe, that is to say, taller than the limits. I think Martin really outdid himself here!

Book of the (Hopefully) Week: The Genius Files by Dan Gutman

Standard

What the story is about: This story is about two kids named Coke and Pepsi… No they are not named after the drink, Coke is a boy and Pepsi is a girl. One day after school they decided to walk home instead of taking the bus, suddenly they realize they are being fallowed by a dude dressed in all black driving a golf cart. Now when somebody dressed in all black is fallowing you in a golf cart your brain would probably  go into alert mode. That was exactly what Pepsi’s did. GeniusFiles_final_lgPepsi did have the reputation to worry a lot but in this case she was right, the dude in black was fallowing them.

My scale of awesomeness: This book was so good you wouldn’t have to be part of the Genius Files program to know it! I really liked this book because there was A LOT of codes in it and I LOVE deciphering codes!
