Hey guys! I am sorry that I haven't been able to post! It is a friday night and I am sitting at home doing homework because MAHS has school tomorrow :(. Anyways, I just wanted to update you guys on some books i've read!

Half Way Home by Hugh Howe- At first, when I started the book, I didn't think I would like it. It seemed a little out there for me. I am not use to reading anything considered "sci-fi." I must say though, I really enjoyed this book! As I was ending the book, I found that I loved the pro-life vs. pro-choice aspect (at least thats how I interpreted it). I was really intrigued how Howe incorporated a new twist on political issues. The book was very well written and I almost enjoyed it more then Molly Fyde. It was different yet I loved it! I kept reading it during my classes because I could not put it down!

Stolen by Lucy Christopher- This book is almost like a twisted love story. It opens in an airport. A young girl of around the age of 16 is having trouble with her parents. An unknown stranger finds her. He looks handsome and nice yet she feels as if she's seen him before. That is when he drugs her. He has "stolen" her away from life. He claims to be protecting her from something. Little does she know, he has been there her whole life protecting her. This book is a captivating story written as a love letter to Gemma's captor Ty. It was very good and i would suggest it to anyone who enjoys mystery novels!

While i have read many others, these were my top two favorites! I also read Will Grayson, Will Grayson, but i would only suggest that book for someone more mature (not that you guys are not mature). It covers some very deep and heavy content. While i will admit, it was very funny but not very age appropriate.
