TITLE: Batman: The Joker’s Dozen
AUTHOR: Laurie S. Sutton
ABOUT THE BOOK: The Joker is turning everyone into Jokers. and now you have to help Batman (the dark knight, Bruce Wayne) make decisions of where to go.
MY REVIEW: I liked this book but I was confused at first because because it had “turn to page 42″ (in that exact color) which was to me at first bizarre! Once I realized it was a choose-the-ending book it wasn’t bizarre anymore, and was instead a very good, non-confusing book! I like that sometimes it seemed like the Joker was going to win. My favorite part was when the Joker got tricked!
AUTHOR: RAINA TELGEMEIER
ABOUT THE BOOK: Raina wants a sister and now she has to take care of her until she is older.
MY REVIEW: I like this book and I like how Raina is obsessed with her Walkman. I found the illustrations and whole book very funny.
TITLE: The Swallow: A Ghost Story
AUTHOR: Charis Cotter
ABOUT THE BOOK: One girl (Rose) sees ghosts the other (Polly) wants to see ghosts. They are different girls but they are best friends… best secret friends! Through a bunch of hardship they eventually come together to face a ghost who wants to rest in peace.
MY REVIEW: A sad, sad book with some not very sad parts. I was very sad for what Rose had to go through. It was funny at the very start when Polly and Rose had an argument about who was the ghost! I like that the ghosts are ghosts until someone helps them.
At first I had a hard time reading from two points of view. Then it got a bit easier and I liked getting to see two sides of the story. I had to ask my mom what meningitis was, and it was a very long chapter book but it was so interesting and I did cry just a bit near the end! I feel like Rose and Polly are my friends now, too… and my middle name is Rose!
I received this book from Netgalley for an honest review. Coming September 9th!

MY REVIEW: It’s a clever and an exiting adventure. I llloooooooooooovvvvveedd the “zombie tips!” My favorite part was when the teacher smears blood all over the window saying “nnaaarrrrgggghhhh!” And “Bbbrrrraaaaaiiiiiinnnnnssss!” I like the little interviews. This book is great for boys, such as my brother, and girls like me.
