Teen Book Review — Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist

Title: Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist
Author: Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
Stars (out of 5): 4
Review: I thought this book was a bit raunchy and certainly a little short. They could have dragged out most of the events for a little while longer. But I did enjoy the book very much, despite all the flaws.

Review: I chose this book because I love basketball and the title attracted me. I don’t want to ruin the ending but all I can say is One shot = 1 million dollars! If you like basketball, you will really enjoy this book!

Teen Book Review — Looking for Alaska

Title: Looking for Alaska
Author: John Green
Stars (out of 5): 5
Review: Bravo, John Green! This book wasn’t nearly as good as The Fault in Our Stars, but I still really liked it. The book was sad, but not enough to make me cry. I think anyone who has recently experienced the death of someone who was really close to them should pick up this book and give it a try. My favorite part was probably when the Colonel and Miles pulled off the Alaska Young Memorial Prank. It was really funny! In conclusion, this book was wonderful and would heal a grieving person.

Teen Book Review — Ready Player One

Title: Ready Player One
Author: Ernest Cline
Stars (out of 5): 5
Review: he book was very interesting and taught me alot about the 80s. I really enjoyed how it was about being in a video game in the future and it makes my imagination go wild. What i also liked was that it related to a show i watched called Sword Art Online. Both talked about going into a video game in the future and figuring a way to win the game. The main characters were also similar, both knowing some knowledge about the creator of the game and having an advantage to win the game. Overall, the book was great and i would recommend it to everyone.

Teen Book Review — It’s Kind of a Funny Story

Title: It’s Kind of a Funny Story
Author: Ned Vizzini
Stars (out of 5): 5
Review: This book is really an emotional one. I wouldn’t suggest it to anyone who really hates books that could possibly make you cry. My favorite part was seeing how Craig reacted to the sometimes strange and maybe a little freaky people in the hospital. I really respect someone who can be comfortable around people with disabilities. Overall, I really liked this book and would recommend it to people I don’t even know.

Teen Book Review — Insurgent

Title: Insurgent
Author: Veronica Roth
Stars (out of 5): 5
Review: This book is a fantastic book, every bit as good as Divergent. It was a little bit of a slow start for me, but that was only because I was reading a really good book while I was beginning this one and the drive towards the really good one overrode the drive to read Insurgent. Otherwise, this book was really exciting. I liked the way Veronica Roth knew when to test things between Tris and Tobias at just the right times. I also liked how Tris seemed to have real feelings… Some of which I recognized as feelings I had felt before. Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone who loved Divergent and were left hungry, ready for more Dauntless action.

Teen Book Review — The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian

Title: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian
Author: Sherman Alexie
Stars (out of 5): 5
Review: The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian is a great book. It made me feel sad, then made me laugh while also showing me how life on the reservation is. At the beginning, when I heard about all of Arnold’s heath issue, I began thinking of him as disabled, but somewhere within the first few chapters, I began thinking of him as who he was: Arnold Spirit. This book is great and I would recommend it to people who like very serious books about real life.

Teen Book Review — Allegiant

Title: Allegiant
Author: Veronica Roth
Stars (out of 5): 5
Review: Allegiant is a book that will make you cry. Literally cry. Like buckets of tears. But only at the end. The rest of the book is extremely action-packed and I really liked how Roth tested the waters with Tris and Tobias at just the right time. This book was dramatic, action-packed and really sad. Although it wasn’t a very happy book, I would gladly read it again.

Teen Book Review — After Iris

Title: After Iris
Author: Natasha Farrant
Stars (out of 5): 4
Review: This book, set in London, is a sad book, albeit, but it was also really good despite the fact that I thought it was kind of unfinished. The ending was strange and didn’t answer a lot of questions, but the characters seemed natural and the feelings that the characters felt seemed real. All in all, this book was just fine, but it certainly was not one of my favorites.

Teen Book Review — City of Fallen Angels

Title: City of Fallen Angels
Author: Cassandra Clare
Stars (out of 5): 3
Review: The series started great but this book seems to be stretching the story. It’s still fun to read.
