The main character is America Singer. She has red hair, green eyes and is very beautiful. She and her family are fives, that means they are pretty poor. But then she gets picked by the Selection and everything changes…

I really recommend this book to everyone who likes love stories because it´s 90% romance. It´s very well written and I personally liked the ups and downs of the story. It´s also 10% civil war so not pure kitsch 🙂 It´s really one of the greatest books I´ve ever read…

New Moon

If you like exciting, fantasy, love stories and thick books you have to read NEW MOON!


New Moon is the second volume of the series Twilight. In this book the love story of Bella and Edward goes on. If you don’t know the first volume at all then you can watch our video about Twilight!

As you already know Edward is a Vampire. Bella has no trouble with that extraordinary situation but maybe Edward? In the beginning Bella and Edward are in their best time. They spend a lot of time with each other and are the happiest people on earth. But then Bella celebrates her birthday at the Cullen’s and there she has a little accident and a little drop of blood drops out of her finger when the paper sliced her finger. Normally the Cullens are “vegetarians” and they drink only the blood of animals but one of them loses his control and the rest of the family have to save Bella from the ravenous, hungry vampire and at this point the trouble starts. Edward thinks it’s too dangerous for Bella to be with Vampires all the time so he breaks up with Bella.

For Bella this is the end but thank God Bella can count on her old best friend Jacob. He leads Bella through the darkest time of her life. Edward is gone “as if he never existed” this is too much for Bella and she tries to do reckless and stupid things like jumping off a cliff. Jacob tries to bring her back to ordinary but then he seems to have a much bigger problem. If you want to know what happens to Jacob and if Edward will come back you have to read NEW MOON!

There are two more volumes of this series they are called Eclipse and Braking Dawn. The author of this awesome book is called Stephenie Meyer.

Warriors: Into the Wild

Into the wild is the first novel of the series warriors. In this book cats play the main characters. There are wild cats who live in the wood and fight each other. Rusty the main character lives with humans but he decides to join one of the clans in the wood but there life isn’t easy for a houscat like him and there are many enimies. I like this book and I think it is very exiting to read and it is fascinating to read from a cat’s view.
