See what others have read and recommend…maybe you’ll find your next book! Be sure to check back throughout the year for more great book suggestions!

And don’t forget, today is the last day to sign up for the Teen Read Week Read-A-Thon on Saturday, October 20 from 1:00-4:30 p.m. at the Peace Dale Library!

The False Prince by Jennifer Nielsen
Three words I would use to describe The False Prince are exciting, suspenseful, and action packed. I think it’s exciting because of the part where Sage duels Rodan and Tobias stabs Sage in the back, all those things are exciting. Also I think of the word suspenseful because a person named Connor needs to choose one fake prince out of four. You really want to know who gets picked, an what happens to to the other three! In addition, I think of the word action-packed because there is a lot of action, like when a noble and his men got to Connor’s house and they find someone hiding and they must duel! I would definitely recommend this book!

The Reckoning by Kelley Armstrong
Three words I would use to describe this book would be interesting, romantic, and frightening. I would call the book interesting because you never knew what was going to happen and you just wanted to keep reading. That way you get all the interesting an juicy details.
I would call this book romantic because there was a love triangle between a sorcerer, a werewolf, and a necromancer.
Finally, I would call this book frightening because there was a fight between two werewolves and it just happened out of nowhere!
I would recommend this book because I love reading books about the supernatural and there were so many good details and I loved all the characters.

Soul Surfer: A True Story of Faith, Family, and Fighting to Get Back on the Board by Bethany Hamilton
This book is about a girl named Bethany Hamilton. She lives in Hawaii and loves to surf. But on Halloween, her life changed forever. A shark attacked her and she lost her arm. She has become famous because since then she only has one arm and was still able to surf again.
She is a strong young lady who is a strong believer of the Christian faith. She miraculously survived a shark attack. She is my role model because she is only a year older than me and she has been a strong girl. Bethany is very brave and I really admire her.
This was an entertaining, cool, and interesting true story.
