Book Crush by Nancy Pearl

This book is cool because it is just lists of recommended reading. It’s divided by age and genre, so you can find books that are just what you want. It’s for teens and kids, and there is another book that is for adults.

Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach

Book Jacket

This book talks about the history of human cadavers and how they are used in science today. If you get grossed out easily, don’t read this. It’s very cool though!

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Book Jacket
      District 12 is gone, obliterated, and the same goes for almost everyone who ever lived there. Harbored in the supposedly-destroyed safe haven, District 13, Katniss learns that almost all of Panem is in revolt against the Capitol, but the people of the Districts are still afraid and uncertain. The military master-minds at District 13 tell her that only she can serve as a rallying point to them, a reason to continue the revolution. Katniss is forced to choose between becoming the face of the rebellion or allowing the Capitol to regain its hold on the Districts, which she knows would be more crushing and suffocating than ever. The rebellion grows hot all across Panem, and Katniss and her friends are thrown into the thick of it more than once. Ultimately, the fate of Katniss and everything and everyone she has ever known rests upon her own shoulders. The question is whether she will rise to the challenge or crumble under it.
      The author’s tune really changed with this book, and I wasn’t sure I liked the sound of it right from the start. Where the other two books were engaging and rife with action, Mockingjay was full of drama and anti-war sentiments. Ultimately, I completely disagreed with the theme of the book. Many main characters die unnecessarily and the book just leaves a bad taste in your mouth. The ending is dissatisfying and makes you wonder what the author’s intentions were all along.
      Nonetheless, I read the book in a day, and it’s definitely worth the read- just don’t expect a grand, magnificent ending that leaves you feeling good.  It’s unfortunate, but if you were a die-hard fan of the first two books, as I was, you too may be changing your tune when you read Mockingjay.
