Wonder: By R. J. Palacio

Hey readers, I hope all of your lives are going well...whether it is or it isn't, it's time to escape into a book!

This book is one of my new favorites. It is not sci-fi or fantasy but realistic fiction. It's about a boy named August who has a facial deformity. Up until fourth grade August was tutored due to his health and social problems. After a decision with his parents August decides to go to school. This book is all about his experience with friends, family and dealing with life and accepting himself and having others accept him. It is written in the voice of August, his sister, his sister's friends and also his classmates. This makes it interesting and helps you learn about August and others' experiences with him through different eyes.

This is a very sweet book and I hope you love it.

The Maze Runner: By James Dashner

Hey readers, I'm here to talk about this month's book, The Maze Runner by James Dashner. This is an amazing book to read for those of you who like books like the Hunger Games, Divergent and the Mortal Instruments series. This book is about a boy named Thomas who one day wakes up in a metal box, in a weird place, remembering nothing but his name. He finds out that he is in a place called The Glade. Surrounding The Glade is a giant maze filled with creatures that come out at night called Grievers.  Every day people called "runners" run through the maze looking for a way out, and every day they come back with no luck.  There is a little bit of a love factor that plays throughout this book and the rest of the trilogy.

This book is for people who like action and Sci-Fi and it is definitely a must read. I think it is going to be made into a movie so read the book first!

If you like this book, read the rest of the trilogy entitled Scorch Trials and lastly Death Cure. There is also a prequel called The Kill Order.

Post comments to let me know how you like them.
