the curious incident of the dog in the night-time

This amazing New York Times notable book by Mark Haddon is the heartwarming story of Christopher Boone and how his quest to find out who killed Wellington turns into more than just "doing detecting" to bring who killed the poodle, to justice. Soon Christopher's safe world of maths and computer games is turned upside down when he finds out almost everything his father has told him was a lie. I originally picked this book up at the volunteer party and after i finished Breaking Dawn, i picked it up and haven't put it down until 20 minutes ago when i finished. I loved and it doesn't take long for the reader to love Christopher because he tells it like it is with pure honesty, even when he knows he would be in trouble. The silly rituals and suspicions make the story and i reccomend it to everyone who loves unsuspected suprises, mystery and a happy ending. :)

Breaking Dawn

The fourth book in the amazing Twilight series, Breaking Dawn was released on August 2 at 12:02 am, and i was there! later that day, i started reading it and it just kept getting better and better. There are so many unexpected things happening in every chapter. And I thought it was great. Bella and Edward are get married. But when they go on their honeymoon is when the real trouble begins. I am actually at a loss for words that aren't horribly cliche for how great it is. A perfect ending to the series. Stephanie Meyer is a wonderful writer and made the story so exciting that it is hard to put any of the books down. Kudos to Stephanie and i can't wait to read her other book the Host. :)
