Lost in Yonkers by Neil Simon

This is a funny and heartwarming story. Gramma runs the family, but doesn't give the love that is needed. Self esteem: everyone needs it! The story deserves to be award-winning.

The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom

I enjoyed this book; the details of it are great! I had tears in my eyes almost every chapter. It also gave me a feel of what it was like back in the 1900s.

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins

Catching Fire by Suzanne CollinsKatniss and Peeta face a huge challenge after the Hunger Games.

5 out of 5 stars. Usually sequels aren't that good, but this was well-written and very good.

The Silver Kiss by Annette Curtis Klause

The Silver Kiss by Annette Curtis KlauseA mysterious boy harboring a dark secret helps Zohe come to terms with her mother's terminal illness.

Without giving his secret away, I will say that this book is anything but stereotypical. It's a beautifully woven story with a dramatic and slightly unexpected ending. When it comes to the preternatural world of fiction, this is by far an original, captivating little tale.

If you've ever wondered what your dog was thinking, you need to read this book. Funny, sad, and totally awesome! It let's you know the loyalty of our four-paw friends.

And if you like this book, you should check out Cameron's other novel in this series: A Dog's Journey.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. RowlingThe adventure continues in this title, the fifth book in the series, with Dumbledore promising to tell all.

I have read this book at least 10 times, but every time I read any of the Harry Potter books I can't put them down! Especially the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th books. Because they are so long, I find something new in them each time I read them. Despite the size of this book (over 800 pages!), I still can read it in 2 days because it is simply that amazing.

The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom

The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch AlbomAfter dying on his 83rd birdthday, Eddie meets five people in heaven who will help him understand his life on earth.

I thought this was a very well-written novel. It kept me guessing on what would happen next. It was also a good novel to teach lessons on life and show that things happen for reasons. In the worst events that could possibly happen, things can get better, even when it seems to be the end.

Shugo Chara! by Peach-Pit

Shugo Chara! Volume 1 by Peach-PitAmu receives three little eggs that can give her the power to be someone new.

One of my first impressions before reading this book was-"Aren't I a bit too old for this?" I spoke too soon, because after the first chapter or so, I couldn't put this book down! I really love the artwork and story behind Shugo Chara! Whether your 10, 50 or 100 years old, I guarantee you'll love it! One of my favorite things about Shugo Chara is the characters' personalities-all of them are unique! What threw me off was the abrupt ending... because I didn't have the second volume yet!!! :)
