Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows 

by J.K. Rowling

Deathly HallowsThe book is about a wizard, Harry, who is wanted dead by Lord Voldemort. Harry is on a journey to find things that will help kill Voldemort. When Harry puts his friends life in danger he finally ends the feud.

I started reading the Harry Potter books in seventh grade. When I was reading them I got more and more interested with each book I read. It got my attention because of the mystery. I wanted to figure out why Lord Voldemort wanted to kill Harry.

I would recommend these books because they are very interesting. If you read this you should be interested in dramatic books

Jinx 

by Meg Cabot

Jinx coverOne girl with very bad luck. One cousin who believes in witches. Jinx is the story of a teenage girl who just thought she had very bad luck, but later, her cousin proves to her who she really is.

Jinx is an extremely interesting book because it has mystery which makes you want to keep reading to find out what happens next. I also like how there is a little romance, especially coming from a relatable teenage girl.

If you like mysterious stories with a twist at the end, you would love Jinx by Meg Cabot.

Witch and Wizard 

by James Patterson

Witch and Wizard coverOne sister and one brother are accused of being a witch and wizard. It's about this new society, run by The One Who Is The One, and how they are afraid of kids because they suspect that they have powers.

I absolutely loved this book! I thought that the writing was very easy-to-follow, and it wasn't a complicated storyline! I love all books about different societies, and how it makes you think how lucky we are, living in a country like ours.

I would definitely recommend this book to all lovers of the Hunger Games. I read this book right after I read the Hunger Games series and didn't think low on either of them. This was overall an AMAZING book!!

Howl's Moving Castle 

by Diana Wynne Jones
12/01/2011 Categories: fantasy romance witches & wizards

Sophie Hatter is a Plain Jane who believes that she is incapable of doing anything worthwhile due to her status as the eldest of three sisters. However, when she is turned into an old hag by an evil witch, she embarks on a quest to find the solution to her dilemma, in which she meets many fascinating characters, including a very handsome wizard and his moving castle.

I loved it; it was a topsy-turvy romance that had a classic feel to it along with a spice of humor. Additionally, I loved how the romance was understated verbally (there was actually no "I love yous" between the two protagonists) but adorable and fascinatingly addicting.

Yes, I would definitely recommend this book to others. Girls of any age would enjoy it (but grade level wise, perhaps 5th grade and up?) as well as select boys who enjoy quirky fantasy without minding a dose of sweetness.
