I’ll mature when I’m dead : Dave Barry’s amazing tales of adulthood
This is another laugh-out-loud book from my favorite funny man. With chapters covering topics such as fatherhood, technology, dog ownership, Dave’s Hollywood career and visiting Miami, you’re sure to find a favorite. Two chapters are hilarious parodies of the recent popular phenomena: The Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer and “24” the television show starring Kiefer Sutherland. My favorite is  “Tips for visiting Miami: No. 1: Are you insane?” This had me in stitches: “We also have a growing population of unwelcome out-of-town wildlife species that have come here and clearly intend to stay. Two invasive species in particular have caused serious concern: Burmese pythons, and New Yorkers. The New Yorkers have been coming for years, which is weird because pretty much all they do once they get to Florida is bitch about how everything here sucks compared to the earthly paradise that is New York. They continue to root, loudly, for the Jets, the Knicks, the Mets, and the Yankees; they never stop declaring, loudly, that in New York the restaurants are better, the stores are nicer, the people are smarter, the public transportation is free of sharks, etc.” Dave has a most unique suggestion for handling the python problem once and for all.

Legacy

From  Justin Teen Book Reviewer
Author:  Tom Sniegoski
Legacy
The book Legacy by Thomas Sniegoski  is an action packed, mysterious adventure about an 18 year old boy named Lucas Moore who finds out that his dad is a superhero. Legacy  takes you inside the lives of two superheroes who have to fight crime, keep a low profile, and overcome sadness. Personally, I loved this book. I think the author tied up all the loose ends. I also think he wrote the book so descriptively that you would think it could be a famous motion picture. Another great thing about this book is that it is a quick and very detailed read. I would recommend this book to anybody who loves action and adventure. I believe any person who loves those types of genres would enjoy this book. So read this awesome book!

The Last Song

The Last Song
This book was a great summer read! A bit predictable but I truly enjoyed this sweet story about a daughter and her dad getting to know each  other all over again.  The main character also falls in love with a lot of drama along the way.  One of Sparks’ best novels yet!

The Edge Chronicles Volume One: Beyond The Deep Woods

From Erik Schmid
author: Stewart, Paul
The Edge Chronicles Volume One: Beyond The Deep Woods
This first volume of the ten-part “Edge Chronicles” introduces the reader
to the main character Twig’s world and gives us the background needed to
enjoy the rest of the series. This very original world is made up of
trolls, goblins, man-eating trees, floating cities and deep forests where
strange creatures look for food and stalk each other.  Twig is a troll
himself, and yearns to get out of his drab existence and live a life of
adventure, preferably as one of the sky pirates. These pirates captain
huge flying sailing ships. Twig is very different from his elders, who
can’t understand why someone would crave adventure. One day on his way to one of his relatives, Twig decides to “step off the path” and journey into
the Deep woods, the forest surrounding his home, which begins a sequence
of events in which we meet the strange inhabitants of the Woods.

The Edge Chronicles is full of imagination and has slightly off kilter
storytelling, making it one of the most original fantasy series to come
along in some time. Paul Stewart recently wrote the final installment of
the series,”The Immortals” so there is no need to wait for upcoming books
with this one. So “step off the path” and read “Beyond the Deep woods”.
