BOOK NAME: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
AUTHOR: J.K. Rowling
For all of Harry’s life he has been treated unfairly by his aunt, uncle and cousin. They put him in a cupboard to sleep in for the past eleven years he has lived there. One day Harry gets a suspicious letter that reveals a secret that has been kept from him. Harry is a wizard.
He goes to a wizarding school, Hogwarts, where he learns all kinds of magic and learns about his past too. Harry and his two best friends Ron and Hermione end up dealing with Centaurs, plants that kill, and teachers with two heads! Can Harry survive his first year with out getting eaten by trolls?
This is one of my favorite books EVER!! J.K. Rowling is and amazing writer because she always keeps you into the book. There are seven books in the Harry Potter series and six movies have been made. The seventh movies comes out late fall and part two comes out mid winter! I know I’ll be there opening night. The genre of the series is fantasy because of all the mythical and made up creatures that are invented in it. Make sure when you are reading this that you don’t skip around pages because crucial information that will come up in later books are found in this one. There are a lot of loose ends at the end of the book meaning you will have LOTS of questions but just keep reading and you will find out more, meet new people, and continue on this great magical adventure!
If you like the Harry Potter series, you should check out The Tales of Beedle the Bard, also by J.K. Rowling and it takes place in the world of Harry Potter.
BOOK NAME: Beast Quest
AUTHOR: Adam Blade
Beast Quest is a really good series that I’ve read. There are 12 books in the series. If you like good adventure with a lot of action, this is the perfect series.
The series follows, Tom, Elenna, Storm and Silver. Tom is a Blacksmith apprentice. His dad was a great Knight, who died, and now Tom lives with his uncle. Elenna has a pet wolf, Silver, and ran away to go on this risky journey with Tom. Storm is Tom’s white Stallion who’s very useful. And Aduro is the Wizard that gave Tom all of his special items, including his sword, 3D map and shield.
Their journey in the first six books is to free all of the beasts that Malvel, an evil wizard, has captured – Ferno the Fire Dragon, Sepron the Serpent, Cipher the Mountain Giant, Tagus the Night Horse, Tartok the Ice Beast and Epos the Winged Flame. In the next six books, Malvel makes six new beasts. I’m not going to tell you who they are.
I hope you enjoy the 12 books in the series. They’re reallllly good. It’s just like you’re in the movie – you’re right there in the movie. It’s like Lord of the Rings!
