Mike and Psmith 

by P.G. Wodehouse

Image result for Mike and PsmithMike, cricketeer extraordinaire, meets Psmith, a whimsical boy whose last name is pronounced with a silent "p" (as in pshrimp). Both are kicked out of their respective respectable schools and are sent to a small school Sedleigh, whose cricket team leaves much to be desired. In this lighthearted tale, the two fast friends turn Sedleigh upside-down with Psmith's smooth-talking connivery, Mike's passion for cricket, and any proper English schoolboy's good, old-fashioned prank.

Mike & Psmith was an amazing book and was very readable, especially for a novel written in 1919. There is definitely a lot of cricket terminology and some slang throughout the book (I would suggest looking up a video explaining the sport or skipping the cricket sections entirely) but Mike and especially Psmith will be characters after your own heart. It was fun to read and had its own brand of understated humor, giving me a hilarious outlook of English boarding school.

It doesn't matter if you're a boy or a girl for this book; there is no romance, but all will enjoy reading this story. It's a great way to read older literature without being bored out of your skull, but it may get complicated for readers used to modern-day lit. Even so, I encourage you to challenge yourself! You may discover that you like the book enough to continue the Psmith series.

We'll Always Have Summer coverBelly is finally in a loving, committed relationship with Jeremiah in college. So he decides to pop the question after 2 years of dating and they decide to head down to Cousins Beach to plan the wedding. However, they did not expect to run into Conrad who is staying at the beach house. Then, Conrad tells Belly he made a mistake ending the relationship with her and still has feelings for her. She finally has to confront her feelings for both of them and choose.

I totally loved this book!!! There are a bunch of laughs, twists, heartbreak I never saw coming even for a second. I think this is one of the few books, that when it ended I felt happy about it like it was the perfect ending.

YES, read it! If you don't you will regret it. It has some really good lines in there that are unforgettable. It kind of reminds me of a Sarah Dessen book because the outcome is totally unpredictable.

The Dead coverThe Dead is a prequel to the book, The Enemy, taking place a year before the action in the previous book. Around the world, everyone over 18 has turned into flesh eating monsters. In London a group of teenagers from a boarding school try to escape to the city to find food and somewhere to live.

I like this book because it is fast-paced, full of action and adventure and has multiple plot twists. Plus,there is a character who has the same name as me which doesn't happen often with me.

I would recommend this book to people who like Zombie action and sarcastic, witty humor.

by Laura Ruby

Good Girls coverGood Girls by Laura Ruby is about how a straight-A student in high school suddenly gets caught doing something she shouldn't, and everyone knows what.

Laura Ruby's novel is an almost frighteningly accurate portrayal of how fast things spread by word of mouth and the internet.

I greatly enjoyed this book because of its realism. Good Girls by Laura Ruby is strongly recommended to anyone in middle or high school who has a pointed sense of humor.
