Shadow And Bone
by Leigh Bardugo

View in Library Catalog



Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo is a fantasy novel that explores a world where people called grisha have the ability to manipulate the natural world. For hundreds of years, common folk have hated and feared grisha because of their power. So when Alina Starkov discovers she is not only a grisha but the only grisha of her kind, her life spirals into a dangerous yet exhilarating adventure. The entire country of Ravka has been divided by a region of darkness - the Shadow Fold. And now that Alina, the fabled Sun Summoner, has appeared, Ravka depends on this young war orphan to heal the wound that is tearing it apart. I loved the magic system described in this story. The different types of power the grisha have are extremely unique and the characters, especially the villain of the story, all have very rich and complex backstories that bring the story to life. I would recommend this to anyone who likes fantasy and morally grey characters.

Norwegian Wood

For a while, I haven't had the motivation to read for my own pleasure until I decided to pick up this book. The way Murakami is able to describe everyday mundane tasks in such detail is so fascinating and I wasn't able to put the book down because of it. The ending is something I know will stick with me for a very long time.

To kill a Mockingbird
by Harper Lee

To Kill a Mockingbird tells the bad impact of racism in America through a little girl’s point of view and her opinion about racism. The story takes place in Depression-era in Alabama, in the town of Maycomb. The narrator is a 6-year-old girl named Scout Finch and her brother Jem and their friend Dill play games but they have a clear view of the adults in their world. Their innocence is different from the poverty, prejudice, and cruelty they saw often. The children in the novel are learning powerful lessons about the crash of poverty and prejudice. I think the teens will like this because It is showing the impact of racism and the little girl’s point of the view is shown in the book. I like to see how the children learn a powerful lesson or message about poverty and prejudice and what their opinion is.

The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants

This is a cute book about four friends growing up apart, but connected through a pair of pants. The writing itself was a little juvenile, but the story is good. Some of the issues weren't addressed well enough at the end, in my opinion.

I loved the fact that the author took the fist 3 pages too speed us up on what has already happened in the book since book 3 came out long time ago from now. I thought this was a really good book and can't wait to see what happens in the next book and if An Tzu will make it to the end.
