The Hunger Games By Suzanne Collins

This is a brilliant book filled with adventure. I have not yet finished the book but so far it is amazing. It is the best book I have read, and you should read it because it is always leaving you in suspense. It is about a girl who is chosen to go and play for her district in “The Hunger Games” with twelve other children from different districts. The “Hunger Games” are games where children are chosen by there districts to fight and kill the players from opposing districts to win food for there district. She has to win the games to get back with her family and bring back honour to her district.

Twilight By Stephenie Meyer

This book is about a girl that moved from Pheonix to Forks and went to a new school. When she moved school she fell in love with a boy called Edward who is a vampire. I enjoyed reading this book because it is really good and interesing.
 RFC 12

This book is about girl called Bella that moves to Forks and meets a vampire called Edward who she falls in love with. I really did not like this book as I found it very boring and unrealistic. Normally I like fantasy books but to me this book didnt make a lot of sense.

Double Cross By Malorie Blackman

This book is a romance book, at first I did not know because someone said it was good, so I got it and then started to get into it and then suddenly realised it was a romance. The book was also made by the award winning author of 'Noughts and Crosses'. The book is about a couple who are living quite an extraordinary life, at the beginning a bomb hits a hotel and kills Callie Rose's grandmother (the main character is Callie Rose) every one assumes that a terrorist did it but Callie knows who did it. Her boyfriend Tobey is struggling in school because of gangs in the streets because he’s making money doing drug deliveries. I’ve enjoyed it and I’d recommend it to boys and girls don’t be put off by the romance. By nojoke90

Noughts and Crosses by Malorie Blackman

The first thing you should know about this book this book is that Malorie Blackman is trying to invert our common things that we think about regarding the discrimination against black people (so she is swapping it around and making it the white people being the victims). This book is about two teens called Callum and Sephy. Callum is a Nought (or a white person) and Sephy is a Cross (this meaning she is black). Even though Callum is poor and white and Sephy is rich (and black) their friendship has blossomed since they were small and Calum's mum worked for Sephy's mum but times have changed since then and Callum's brother and daad have joined a terrorists group fighting against the Crosses power. *********** Spolier Alert *********************** Later on Sephy has come back from boarding school and has not seen Callum for a while but it still in love with him. Unfortunately Calum has joined the terrioist group and is here to capture Sephy for ransom as her father is the Prime Minister. They keep Sephy in a cell and when she finally gets out after escaping she finds out she is pregnant with Callum's baby. Her father suspects that Callum has raped her but it was both of their descisions. Sephy's dad makes her chose between having an abortion or Callum getting hung. After meeting up they both decide Callum will die so their baby can live. ************************************************** I think this book is amazing as it shows that love can excist between two different races, an amazing book.

Assassins Creed : Brotherhood By Oliver Bowden

Assassin’s Creed- Brotherhood is an action/adventure book about a master assassin, Ezio, trying to defeat the Borgia. It is based on the game of the same name, but you don’t need to play the game to understand it. It is best to read the prequal, Assassin's Creed- Rennaissance first to understand all of Ezio’s past and his goals, but Rennaissance isn't as exciting as Brotherhood.

In Assassin's Creed - Rennaissance, Ezio is put into action against a huge conspiracy after an unfortunate series of events. He sets out to defeat the Knights Templar, he ends up travelling all around Italy in search of their leader, Rodrigo Borgia, Rodrigo killls the pope, which is a bit brutal, and then becomes the new pope. This is bad, because the pope represents God, who represents good, and Rodrigo is pure evil.

Anyway, I wont ruin the end of the first book, but some stuff happens and Cesare Borgia ( Cesare Borgia is real, and he was evil, so it's historically correct) attacks Ezios home, and also the town that his family owns, and from then on Ezio chases after the Borgia.

The plot is much more thick than that, with Ezio being friends with Leonardo da Vinci, who makes Ezio a brace with a blade that springs out, Leonardo is also being forced to work with Cesare, which is also historically correct, and awkward, considering that Cesare is Ezio’s worst enemy. A love life with someone who he thinks might be using him, one of his friends thinking that another friend, Niccolo Machiavelli (also real), is working with the Borgia. He doesnt trust his sister to do things properly and to top it all of, he’s nearly 50!!!
