THE UNBECOMING OF MARA DYER                                                                             BY MICHELLE HODKIN

Goodreads Summary4 STARS!!!

Mara Dyer believes life can't get any stranger than waking up in a hospital with no memory of how she got there.
It can. 

She believes there must be more to the accident she can't remember that killed her friends and left her strangely unharmed. 
There is.

She doesn't believe that after everything she's been through, she can fall in love. 
She's wrong.



MY REVIEW

This is definitely not one of my favorite books but it was pretty gripping. So Mara waked up in a hospital and learns that her two friends and boyfriend died and she suggests they move to another house and start fresh. She goes to a new school and meets Noah, there's the typical 'new girl' scene and also the mean girl..It was just very predictable...

I did however love Mara's relationship with her siblings; especially Daniel. He was fiercely protective …

BY MIDNIGHT (A RAVENWOOD MYSTERY BOOK 1)                                                         BY MIA JAMES

Goodreads Summary 3.5 STARS!!!

April Dunne is not impressed. She's had to move from Edinburgh to Highgate, London, with her parents. She's left her friends - and her entire life - behind. She has to start at a new school and, worst of all, now she's stuck in a creepy old dump of a house which doesn't even have proper mobile phone reception. Ravenwood, her new school, is a prestigious academy for gifted (financially or academically) students - and the only place her parents could find her a place, in the middle of term, in the middle of London, on incredibly short notice. So she's stuck with the super-rich, and the super-smart... and trying to fit in is when the rest of the students seem to be more glamorous, smarter, or more talented than she is, is more than tough. It's intimidating and isolating, even when she finds a friend in the conspiracy-theorist C…

Goodreads Summary 5 STARS!!!

New York Times Bestseller * Indie List Bestseller * Soon to be a Film from Universal Pictures * A Barnes & Noble Best Book of 2013 * Waterstones Children's Prize Nominee * Children's Choice Reading List Selection

The first kidnappings happened two hundred years before. Some years it was two boys taken, some years two girls, sometimes one of each. But if at first the choices seemed random, soon the pattern became clear. One was always beautiful and good, the child every parent wanted as their own. The other was homely and odd, an outcast from birth. An opposing pair, plucked from youth and spirited away.

This year, best friends Sophie and Agatha are about to discover where all the lost children go: the fabled School for Good & Evil, where ordinary boys and girls are trained to be fairy tale heroes and villains. As the most beaut…
