The Running Dream
by Wendelin Van Draanen

View in Library Catalog



Running is Jessica’s life. Or it was. On a tragic day driving to a track meet, 16 year old Jessica and her track team were hit by a drunk driver, resulting in her losing a leg and another member passing away. Through this heart-wrenching story Jessica navigates her way through the hardship and loss following this accident. On the way, she met people and reconnected with old friends to find hope where there seemed to be none.

The Accidental Guardian
by Mary Connealy

View in Library Catalog



Trace Riley is a young cowboy who finds a small wagon train in ruins after an attack from the same people who left him as the sole survivor from a similar attack years ago. Living off the wilderness since then, he'd finally made a life for himself, while serving as a guardian of the trail, driving off dangerous men. Deborah Harkness saved her younger sister and two toddlers from the attack and now relies on Trace, who offers the only shelter and protection for miles and agrees to take the four of them in until they can safely continue on their journey. This book explores the topics of trust, faith, love, and justice and I found it very moving to see Trace and the family (who were complete strangers at first) come together in times of need. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes a book with a very old, traditional, and western setting to it, as well as those who hold religious values as those were very prominent throughout the story. Overall, I really enjoyed it and I would gladly read a sequel (if there is one; I haven't checked haha)

Archenemies
by Marissa Meyer

Archenemies is a lovely sequel to Renegades that ups the stakes and adds more tension to the already fragile balance the characters hold (not a bad thing).

Going Wild

The story is interesting and compelling, and the characters have good interactions. The writing style was a bit more tell than show, though.

The Color of Magic

A fascinating series of adventures with a very unwilling protagonist.

This book was really good. I like the diverse amount of characters shown throughout the book.

The Boxcar Children Surprise Island
by Gertrude Chandler Warner

I enjoyed reading this book. It included the story of how four children spent their summer while still keeping the book short and sweet.

Genghis Khan And The Making Of The Modern World By Jack Weatherford
by Jack Weatherford

View in Library Catalog



The book was not my favorite due to being close if not completely nonfiction. One issue I found, was the events seemed compiled and didn't seem to follow a sense of order. Also, only half the book was about Genghis Khan. Thus I have given it two. This is not to say it shouldn't be read. It was not my cup of tea.

Les Miserables, Fantine
by Victor Hugo

View in Library Catalog



Victor Hugo manages, in the first hour of reading, to inform the reader of absolutely nothing necessary to the plot. Once Jean Valjean appears, the story picks up and becomes much more interesting and enjoyable—save for the chapter that covers all the events which occurred in a certain time frame. I know he thinks it necessary for context, but it really isn’t.
