You would like this book if you like Suspense
This book is a contrast of funny, romantic, action, and magic. The author combines all of the above things into a very interesting story with funny chapter names. It's about norse mythology, like Thor, Odin, and Loki and all those gods, it's a different than Percy Jackson series, but in this book it has Percy in it it connects the book to another different series, but you should probably read the books before it before you read this book since there is book 1 and book 2 before it.
You would like this book if you like Magic
This book was so amazing. It was a great way to escape and go to another world. Every time I read it, I was always captured and I couldn't put it down. If you are looking for a book with romance, magic, adventure and friendships, then you would like this book. It started off with a woman named Celaena. She had been put one of the worst mining camps in her time. But she survived, and along her journey, she met princes, and true friends. She made bonds, and re-discovered powers. This book was very empowering, but it is a mature book. I hope that if you have read this, you enjoyed it as much as I did.

This book is about the ThunderClan leader, Bluestar, and how she grew up. If you have read other Warriors books and wondered about what life was like when she was a kit, then this book is for you. It starts of from when Bluekit was born. The main part of that chapter is her doing so. The next part is one of my favourites because it is very cute. Bluekit goes outside with her sister, Snowkit and explores the dens and the campground which the cats all live in. (From ThunderClan) The rest of the book is about Bluestar's struggles, and triumphs. This book may be a little bit violent when there are battles between clans and parents of younger children may not approve, but this book is mainly about never giving up and finding your true passion. I would recommend reading this book before any other books in this series, because you may find it a bit confusing. This book is a bit big for people who normally like to read smaller books, but that doesn't mean I don't recommend them to read it too. This book took me around two weeks to read and I am a pretty fast reader so it may take most readers a bit longer. This book is very amazing and it captures you so you never want to put it down. This book is mostly a page-turner, but not a thriller. I would recommend this book to people who love cats and adventure stories.

I strongly encourage young readers to read: “The Making of a Navy Seal.” The book clearly shows that it will teach you a lot, mainly because it makes you visualize what it’s like in that scenario. It also teaches you how hard life can be, and how you should never give up to achieve your dreams. For example, it explains how Brandon Webb, the main character, is almost forced to quit on being a Navy Seal. But he hung in there and would never quit.
However, some parents may not like the talk of firearms, the deaths of many soldiers, placing explosives, and countless more. I’m still absolutely sure the reason parents don’t want their younger kids to read this book is because of the violence. But even so, it persuades you to keep going on, later on in life. The violence also doesn’t really matter, as long as the writer explains the message he’s giving to you, and The Making of A Navy Seal has explained all of that perfectly.
I know for sure that nothing executes the message of how hard life can be better than "The Making of a Navy Seal". Without a doubt, The Navy Seal is indeed an extraordinary book.

Chester and Gus is a great book for people who like animals. The book is about a dog named Chester and being trained to be a service dog. Along the way he helps a boy named Gus who uses him as a therapy dog. This book is really interesting because it is written in the perspective of the dog Chester, I like that it is written like that because it allows the reader to understand what the dog thinks about everything he is doing and how he helps people.

This books is about a young princess who is in love with one of the gardener's sons. He is taken by a Portugese slave trader. She embarks on a mission to stop the enslavement of her people.
This books would be suitable for people who are interested in the history of the African hardships due to slavery as well as the struggles of people in other countries. The message shown in this story is that you can stand up for you beliefs even if the odds are zero to one.
