Hi readers! Sorry for all this inactivity I've just been really busy but I promise I'll be posting more often from now on. :)

Today I will be reviewing IF I STAY by Gayle Forman.

This book is about a sixteen year old girl named Mia who plays the cello and loves classical music. Her boyfriend, Adam is the exact opposite and she's not sure if she can count on him. One day Mia and her family get into a horrible car crash and she is left in a coma. While she's not sure whether everybody's okay or not, she watches people come and go see her including a major break-in in the hospital led by Adam. The story is a roller coaster of emotions.

This book can get incredibly sad and intense in some scenes but it is also one of the most interesting and descriptive books I have ever read and it really makes you think about how fragile life is. I loved how the author described everything in perfect detail and made it so exciting and and emotional.

This book was an amazing book, and I had a wonderful time reading it, but I would recommend it to people age 11 and up because there are some scenes that a young child would not understand.

Thanks so much for reading and I hope you choose to read this book too.

Next week i will review AN ABUNDANCE OF KATHERINES by John Greem

Hey readers! Today I'll be reviewing a book called Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.

Wait a minute. Just wait. I forgot to tell you guys something extra ├╝berexciting. I. JUST. TURNED. TEN!!!!!!!!!!!

I could actually make waaaay more exclamation points than that but I don't want to waste your time with punctuational extremism.

Back to the book. The book I read is about a boy named Charlie Bucket, who is very poor and can't even afford half a chocolate bar. One day Charlie finds a one pound note (It's set in England) on the ground. Naturally, Charlie bucket buys a chocolate bar. I forgot something earlier. There is a competition to see who can go to Willy Wonka's wonderful amazing chocolate factory. The competition is that everybody buys a chocolate bar, and five lucky children will find a golden invitation ticket inside theirs. Now tell me, can you guess what's inside Charlie's chocolate bar?

This book was a good book. Really, it was. But I have to say, as a critic, and I know this book is very famous, in my opinion, its not my favorite.

I wouldn't recommend this book to anybody that want to read about a big adventure, but if you are looking for something witty about a boy, a ticket and lots and lots of chocolate, this is definitely the book for you!!!

Roald Dahl was a great man and today, I would like to honor him.

If you do comment on this post please please please, hashtag #rememberroalddahl

Thanks for reading. Have the happiest of NEW YEARS xoxo, the book snob.

Hi readers!!! Today I read a book called RAINBOW BEAUTY: PEPPERMINT KISS by Kelly McKain.

This book is about a mother and three daughters named Sapphire, Grace and Abbie. After their dad abandoned them, they move into a town with no idea of how to earn any money. But Abbie has a special talent that can turn everything around for them. When she arrived at her new school, she discovered that she has made new friends very quickly. She also discovered that she has a knee shaking, bone wobbling crush on the cutest boy in school. Will her new friends be able to help her out?

I loved this book so very much, but I would only recommend it to children 9 and up.

Hi readers!!! This week I read a book called PERCY JACKSON AND THE LIGHTING THIEF by Rick Riordan.

This book is about a boy named Percy who discovers that he is a demigod. At the moment , Percy lives with his beloved mom, Sally and his mean and disgusting stepdad, Smelly Gabe. But that all changes when Percy takes a car ride to camp half blood and finds out that he can kill a Minotaur. Soon enough he finds out that someone has framed him for stealing Zeus' master bolt. Who was it? I'm not going to tell you.

This was a very interesting and funny book but it had some more violent parts that I don't recommend for young children under 7 years of age.

Hi readers! This week I will be reviewing a book called BALLERINA DREAMS by Ann Bryant.

This book is about three girls who do ballet and all have secret wishes about it.

The first girl's name is Poppy and all she wants is to be good enough to pass the exam to be bumped up to the same class as her best friend Jasmine.

The second girl's name is Jasmine and her dad is going to make her stop ballet at the age of twelve but he doesn't understand how important it is to her and her goal is to show him that she has a true passion for ballet.

The third girl's name is Rose and she is a star gymnast but for her birthday her grandmother gave her a year's worth of ballet lessons. In the end Rose will have to decide between gym and ballet.

I liked this book very much because on each page were words that excited me!!

I think this book is appropriate for all ages and very funny too.
