Writing Reviews
When writing your book review please include the title, author, a little something about the subject of the book and what you liked or didn’t like about the book. Three sentences is the requirement for a review. Here is an example:


The Burn Journals by Brent Runyon


This is a great book about a 14 year old who tries to kill himself. Brent, who is also the author, talks about the memories when he tried to kill himself because he got bad grades and he didn’t want his parents to know. One day, he actually almost killed himself by lighting himself on fire. He got many 2nd and 3rd degree burns and started to wonder if anyone would like him anymore. Brent sees life in a different light and learns to cherish life and be grateful for what he has. After he recovered from most of his burns, he gets sent to a rehab center where people are mean to him but he still pushes his way back to normality and getting on with his life. When I finished reading this book, I couldn’t believe that this was a true story. This is a great experience with suicide and the victim’s thoughts and emotion. This is a one of a kind book and I would recommend this autobiography to anyone willing to face the devastating experience for Brent Runyon.

This is honestly one of the best books that I've read. Its the story of a simple country girl who is given the chance to become princess, but in the end discovers that what she really wants is her home, family, and friends. She learns to stick up for what is right, and learns how to act like a true princess in all situations.   Boston Public Library's Online Catalog

Isabel “Belly” Conklin has just finished her first year of college- and she is engaged to steady boyfriend Jeremiah Fisher. After she reveals the news to her shocked family members, Belly decides to spend her summer at the Fisher family beach house planning her wedding. However, Conrad Fisher (her first love and Jeremiah’s brother) also happens to be staying there… As the weeks pass, being near Conrad reminds her all the reasons she fell in love with him in the first place, and Belly realizes she still has feelings for him. (SPOILER ALERT!) When Conrad lays all his feelings and love for her down on the table, Belly must make a choice that will impact her future forever: Conrad or Jeremiah? On her wedding day, Isabel is able to open her eyes and realize that she and Jeremiah aren’t meant to be. The book fast forwards in time to a couple of years later when Belly is getting married, but this time to Conrad, who is without a doubt “The One” for her.
This is the thrilling conclusion to the ‘Summer’ novels and the author’s writing is better than ever. She has written a brand new storyline full of drama and romance, switched the point of view around to suit the story, and masterfully built up suspense to reveal Belly’s big decision (in the epilogue). Like the legions of Jenny Han fans, I am a little sad there are no more books about Belly to read. However, hopefully this review will inspire other readers who are also into romance to read this incredible series.   Boston Public Library's Online Catalog
