Breathe by Cliff McNish
Jack had only just moved to this house with his mother and he felt as though he was not alone. He soon found out he was living in a house with four ghosts.
I think the story had some good excitement in it but too many hints because you knew what was going to happen which in my opinion makes a book a bit boring after a while.
The characters have a very good description and they make you feel like they are standing right beside you in real life.” A boy his own age, with short blond wavy hair, wearing a red t-shirt. Distinctly seeing the freckles on the bridge of his nose.
The book would be good for somebody into ghostly stories or thrilling chilling stories.
Interest level Year 7, 8 or 9
Recommendation: 3 1/2 – 5 stars
EVERNIGHT by Claudia Gray
Interest Level: Years 9 and up
This is a great vampire book for anyone who enjoyed the “Twilight” series. Lucas and Bianca are attracted to each other after their first meeting but are also a bit wary of taking their relationship further. Bianca is shy and Lucas seems a tad too violent for her liking. Neither seem to be really enjoying life at their boarding school, the Evernight Academy. Just as it seems true love is going to take over… vampires and vampire hunters make an unexpected appearance and life is turned on its head for the young lovers. Will their relationship survive the horrors surrounding them? Are they a modern day Romeo and Juliet – torn apart by their families? This book contains some unexpected twists and turn; it also offers a wonderful romance that seems doomed from the start … despite the obvious attraction of the two teen lead characters. Lucas and Bianca just may rival Bella and Edward in their passion for each other and their frustration at being kept apart. The good news is that the sequel is already being written by Claudia Gray!
Highly Recommended (dma) *****
The books are great and I have only just read two of the amazing four!!!!! I can’t wait for the movie!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s kind of a worry cause if the movie isn’t as good as the books,GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! But by the preview it looks like the next Harry Potter!!!! I love the way Stephenie Meyer writes the books because its really hard to put the book down!!!!!!!!!!!!! At the moment my friend and I are trying to beat each other to finish the books! She is winning at the moment!!!! But I’m only a chapter away from catching up to her!!!!!!!!
