“Reading is one of my favourite pastimes. In the summer I love going to the library and finding new authors. It’s an adventure every time. One of the first authors I found was Eric Wilson, a canadian. He writes mysteries that take place across Canada. You get to read exciting mysteries and learn about Canada at the same time. For example, “ The St. Andrews werewolf’” takes place in St. Andrews, New Brunswick. There are werewolf rumors going around and mysterious threats are being heard. It’s up to Liz Austen to shut down the rumors and find out who is behind it all… Another is called “Code Red at the supermall.” I haven’t read it but would like to. I know that it is about some mysterious bombing going on at West Edmonton mall and the Austen siblings need to figure it out before it’s too late. There are lots of different cases and they are all very exciting and interesting.
Another series I tried was ‘My sister the vampire” by Sienna Mercer. There are actually twelve books, but I read only the first four. Olivia Abbott has just moved to Franklin Grove and has found that she has a sister, an identical twin sister! But they aren’t exactly alike. Olivia is a cheerleader, and Ivy is a vampire! They go through all sorts of little adventures together, and it shows their true sister spirit.
One day in the library I happened to stumble upon two books; “A wrinkle in time” from the time quintet by Madline L’engle, and “The city of ember” from the books of ember series by Jeanne Duprau. So, I took them home and started reading. I started with “A wrinkle in time”. At first I didn’t like it and stopped reading it, but later I started up again and liked it very much. When Meg, her brother; Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin meet Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who and Mrs. Which, they are whisked off into a spellbinding and hooking adventure. This book takes you far away to exotic planets that we never knew exsisted. It is a great book and I plan to read the rest in the series. The other book I started reading soon after I finished “A wrinkle in time.” I didn’t find it very exciting at first, but the more I read the more exciting it became. Lina Mayfleet and Doon Harrow seem to be the only ones noticing that their city is slowly breaking down. As the situation becomes desperate, it’s up to Doon and Lina to save their people.
The last series I am actually currently reading. Written by Michael Scott. It is called “The secrets of the immortal Nicholas Flamel” series (anyone recognize the name from Harry Potter, another great series?) which is full of magic and wonder. There are four books in the series, “The Alchemyst”, “The Magician”, “The Sorceress”, and “The Necromancer”. I am still reading the first book and I like it a lot.
I read many books this summer and I strongly recommend all of them to you and I hope you liked my reviews!
