Review: The Alchemist

A review by Teen Blogger, Hannah | The Alchemist is the story of a boy called Santiago who gives up his simple life as a shepherd to pursue his true desire and treasure. Paulo Coelho is a very highly respected author and The Alchemist is considered a masterpiece, highly praised around the world. Which is why I struggled to understand why I took quite a disliking to this book.

Review: Fullmetal Alchemist

A review by Teen Blogger, Timothy | "Although the story of Fullmetal Alchemist can be a difficult one to follow, it is well worth the read. The reason I say this is because not only does it look at the idea of ‘What if we could achieve immortality?,’ or ‘What if we could resurrect the dead?’, but it also shows the potential and very real dangers of such feats."

Review: The Hate U Give

A review by Teen Blogger, Malk | "I finished this book with an entirely new perspective I will carry with me in the future." I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to say that I’ve witnessed a YA book truly begin to change the world. And if you’ve already read (or re-read multiple times, like me) The Hate U Give, then you’ll understand why.

I don’t think that anyone has not heard of the book or the movie, they are both just groundbreaking! You are inhumane and live under a rock if you haven’t even heard of the book. Wonder is a book and movie about a boy called August (Auggie) Pullman who was born with a facial difference that, up until now, has prevented him from going to a regular school...

Review: Cinder

By Teen Blogger, Malk | This is not the fairytale you remember. But it's one you won't forget. Everyone knows the story of Cinderella. At this point, I have read so many versions of it that I had a tough time just picking up the book the first time I saw it. Yet, the further I read, the more I was delighted. This book was...

Review: The Lightning Thief

By Teen Blogger, Stephanie | I’ve always been inquisitive about the subject of mythology, although I don’t know what exactly intrigued me. Perhaps it was from my childhood hours wasted re-watching the Disney film Hercules, or just the study of gods in general. I’m not surprised that I would read Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan, as it tells a story about Percy Jackson, a young boy of age twelve, on his quest to catch the lightning thief...
