The Faerie Path by Frewin Jones

Anita is your typical ordinary girl, until. On Anita's 16th birthday she is pulled away from her world and into another, The Land of Faerie. Anita discovers that she is not Anita, but Tania the 7th and youngest daughter of Oberon and Titania, the King and Queen of Faerie. Tania discovers darkness, friendship, love, and deception all dwell around her in this new world. One problem Anita does not remember being Tania, the only clues she has are 7 strange sisters and brief flashes of her former life. To bad the fate of Faerie rest solely in her hands.

I really enjoyed this book, it was a great read. The only thing I did not like about the book was that it rushed the ending a little and that was a slight disappointment. I did however enjoy the characters and plot line a lot. I think Jones does and amazing job weaving a story that captivates all readers. Although it did not take me long to read I must say It was worth the time. I can't wait to read the next book, The Lost Queen, which is next on my reading list.

Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult

Katie is Amish, Ellie is not. If the similarities end at that then why is Ellie, a big city attorney, defending Katie, a plain Amish girl. Katie has a secret that could ruin her life as her mothers only living child, her chances to be baptized, and her life as an Amish women. Katie is accused of Murdering her new born illegitimate baby, and lying about the pregnancy in general. Ellie did not what to take on this case but felt some certain "family ties" obligated her to. If adjusting to living Amish is not hard enough trow in defending a girl how had and maybe even killed her baby, but does not remember a thing. What will happen, you will have to read to find out.

I was rather excited to read this book, being a fan of Picoult's other books. the story stats out fast, it does not dwell to long on the preliminaries, but jumps strait into the important details. I thought over all the book was good, but some times it dragged, mainly in the court room dialogue. The ending was slightly predictable compared to Picoult's other books, which was a little disappointing. I did enjoy this book and I would recommend it for anyone who is in the mood for a book of deeper content.

Trixie Stone thought she was in love. She was also the perfect daughter, Student, and Popular. Trixie's whole life is changed with one drunken party, one game of poker, and one act of violence. suddenly Trixie has no idea who she is or what truths to believe, has she lost her childhood forever? The only thing to make this more complicated is Trixie's father, mild mannered comic book artist with a secret tortured past. When Trixie turns up missing her father, David, must journey to Hell and back to save her. All the answers are found in the coldest Hell of Davids past.... Alaska.

When I received this book for Christmas I was ecstatic. Picoult is one of my favorite authors. I quickly curled up to read this book. I am always thrown for a loop when reading her books, but i did not expect what happened. Picoult is a master of the craft of storytelling. I loved this book from being to end. It has everything a good read should have. If you are not already a Picoult fan after reading The Tenth Circle you will be.

Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder

What if you had the choice, A quick Death.....or a slow poison? This is the choice that Yelena faces. As a felon convicted of Murder Yelena is scheduled for hanging, but when she is offered a chance to eat, sleep, and live in the palace she knows only a fool would turn it down. The only Catch? Yelena risks assassination by anyone trying to kill the commander of Ixia. Why not run away you may ask, well lets just say the poisons already taken effect.

This book is my favorite of the moment. Maria V. Snyder is a literary genius. I grew attached to all of her amazing characters and her conflicted plot line. I was captivated from page 1 to 361. There was never a dull moment in any of the 3 instalments. I highly suggest everyone reads this books at least once.

Uglies by Scott Westerfeld

Tally is just like any other 15 year old, she cant wait for her 16th Birthday, but not to get her license. In Tally's world your 16th birthday marks your life of non-stop Parties, Drinking, and being Pretty. But what happens when Tally discovers the brain altering truth behind the Pretty operation? Tally's world is thrown completely for a spin. Tally is then offered an impossible choice, to turn in her best friend or never become pretty. What will her choice be? you will have to read to find out.

At first I did not think I would like Uglies because it was a sci-fi book, but after reading it I adored all of WesterfeldsWesterfelds characters and could relate to them on many levels. I quickly found myself excited to read the next three books in the series. i recommend this book to anyone in the mood for a good book. I also must say I love the cover art.

Twilight by Stephenie Meyer

Bella Swan has always hated the small town of Forks. So what brings her here in the first place? Bella's mother re-marrys and wants to travel with her new husband, so Bella makes the choice to move in with her father, Charlie, which brings her to this rainy miserable pit. Bella is unsuspecting of her first day of Forks High School, completely unprepared for meeting the person who will change her life forever... Edward Cullen.

This book is by far one of my favorites. It is full of suspense and questions you just must have answered. Meyers is a genius when it comes to the art of writing. I just could not put this book down. If you are a fan of vampires, romance, conflict, or humor you will have to sink your teeth into Twilight.
