  2. I recommend the "Fellowship of the Ring",because it follows right in with the "Hobbit".And how it just builds suspense.Also I enjoyed the mythic charters such as the hobbits,orcs,and goblins.

  4. The best book I have read all year is the "Runner". I chose this book because I can't find another book just like this one. I like it because I kept wanting to read more and more and when I was finished, I wanted the author to write a sequel. And I also like the action when the main character beats up all the other kids and then destroys his aunt's car with a metal pipe.

  5. My favorite book this year was "Series of Unfortunate Events" Book 4 "The Miserable Mill"
    because it was full of action like when a man gets tied to a board on a saw machine, Adventure, like when the kids went around town trying to find a man who was trying to steel there fortune, and suspense, the feeling of not knowing what will happen next.

  23. One of my favourite books this year was a series of unfortunate events book called ''the end'' by Lemony Snicket, this was a great book because the plot all comes together at the end and suddenly everything is understood about the series.

    Another interesting book is ''alone on a wide wide sea'' by Michael Morporgo, it is a great book about world war 2 and a boy who was taken to Australia to escape it...

    yet another good book is ''there's a boy in the girls bathroom'' by Louis Sachar. This is an exremely humourous book and definitely not what you expect!it is a very touching story at the same time about a boy who has quite a few problems in his life...

    I have so many favourite books this year that I had to list more than one!

    great idea about this post by the way as now people can share what their favourite books are!

    The best book that I have read this year would have to be A Holiday For Geronimo by Geronimo Stilton. This book is about an editor of the rodents gazzette who really needs a vacation. So he books a flight but later the night before has to go fix the printer to print the newspapers for the next morning. So after he fixes it he looks at the time and he missed his plane.S he tells the travel agent and she books another flit another problem accurs and this happens many times before he then gets to the last destination and he goes there but his mgazine writer is there! He dosn't like her very much, she sings very badly and loudly.He gets used to her and finishes his vacation.
