via Amazon

Sypnosis;                                                                                                                                               Loops, variables, input/output – Lucy can’t wait to get started with the new coding club at school. Finally, an after-school activity that she’s really interested in. But Lucy’s excitement turns to disappointment when she’s put into a workgroup with girls she barely knows. All she wanted to do was make an app that she believes will help someone very special to her.

Suddenly, Lucy begins to get cryptic coding messages and needs some help translating them. She soon discovers that coding – and friendship – takes time, dedication, and some laughs!

I love to code. I think it’s a fun thing to learn. I mainly use Scratch but I have used Python before with the help from my younger brothers. This seems like a sweet middle-grade series. I am looking forward to reading this!

Synopsis;                                                                                                                                                    The Renegades are a syndicate of prodigies―humans with extraordinary abilities―who emerged from the ruins of a crumbled society and established peace and order where chaos reigned. As champions of justice, they remain a symbol of hope and courage to everyone…except the villains they once overthrew.  

Nova has a reason to hate the Renegades, and she is on a mission for vengeance. As she gets closer to her target, she meets Adrian, a Renegade boy who believes in justice―and in Nova. But Nova’s allegiance is to the villains who have the power to end them both.

I have been waiting for this book for months! I believe it will be coming out in November- which is next month! I am a little disappointed that Marissa Meyer won’t be continuing the Lunar Chronicles Series but I am super-duper excited for Renegades.

Wires and Nerve, Volume 2 by Marissa Meyer

34930815

Synopsis;                                                                                                                                                    Iko – an audacious android and best friend to the Lunar Queen Cinder – has been tasked with hunting down Alpha Lysander Steele, the leader of a rogue band of bioengineered wolf-soldiers who threaten to undo the tenuous peace agreement between Earth and Luna. Unless Cinder can reverse the mutations that were forced on them years before, Steele and his soldiers plan to satisfy their monstrous appetites with a massacre of the innocent people of Earth.

I am so happy that Iko got her own series! I can’t  wait to see what she has in store. I’m so excited for this to come out!

Click’d by Tamara Ireland Stone

33785212
via Goodreads
Synopsis;
Allie Navarro can’t wait to show her best friends the app she built at CodeGirls summer camp. CLICK’D pairs users based on common interests and sends them on a fun (and occasionally rule-breaking) scavenger hunt to find each other. And it’s a hit. By the second day of school, everyone is talking about CLICK’D.

Watching her app go viral is amazing. Leaderboards are filling up! Everyone’s making new friends. And with all the data Allie is collecting, she has an even better shot at beating her archenemy, Nathan, at the upcoming youth coding competition. But when Allie discovers a glitch that threatens to expose everyone’s secrets, she has to figure out how to make things right, even if that means sharing the computer lab with Nathan. Can Allie fix her app, stop it from doing any more damage, and win back the friends it hurt-all before she steps on stage to present CLICK’D to the judges?

I usually try not to read modern/realistic middle school fiction, but this sounded really cool. I mean a girl who codes a viral app? I definitely am going to read it. I hope that this breaks away from the Typical Middle-School book settings and middle-school drama, you know crushes, mean girls, fitting in, stuff like that’

I am hoping that this book will be different. I really like how authors are writing more steam related books for girls!

 

Okie Dokie next book *tries to be like those cool bloggers*

The Crown by Keira Cass

Synopsis

 When Eadlyn became the first princess of Illéa to hold her own Selection, she didn’t think she would fall in love with any of her thirty-five suitors. She spent the first few weeks of the competition counting down the days until she could send them all home. But as events at the palace force Eadlyn even further into the spotlight, she realizes that she might not be content remaining alone.

Eadlyn still isn’t sure she’ll find the fairytale ending her parents did twenty years ago. But sometimes the heart has a way of surprising you…and soon Eadlyn must make a choice that feels more impossible—and more important—than she ever imagined. 

I was going to read the whole Selection series, but I realized that I would never be able to read all the books on my TBR list if I read the whole series this month. So I decided that I will read the book about America’s daughter, Eadlyn

 

All’s Faire in Middle School by Victoria Jamieson

33517044

Synopsis;

Eleven-year-old Imogene (Impy) has grown up with two parents working at the Renaissance Faire, and she’s eager to begin her own training as a squire. First, though, she’ll need to prove her bravery. Luckily Impy has just the quest in mind–she’ll go to public school after a life of being homeschooled! But it’s not easy to act like a noble knight-in-training in middle school. Impy falls in with a group of girls who seem really nice (until they don’t) and starts to be embarrassed of her thrift shop apparel, her family’s unusual lifestyle, and their small, messy apartment. Impy has always thought of herself as a heroic knight, but when she does something really mean in order to fit in, she begins to wonder whether she might be more of a dragon after all.

I am not sure how this book is going to turn out. I try to avoid books that deal with school because of all the Drama, but I feel like this might turn out differently. I really like how this is about a homeschooled girl, I just wish that people wrote more books about homeschooled kids that stay homeschooled.

The Inquisitor’s Tale by Adam Gidwitz

29358517
Via Goodreads

Synopsis;

1242. On a dark night, travelers from across France cross paths at an inn and begin to tell stories of three children. Their adventures take them on a chase through France: they are taken captive by knights, sit alongside a king, and save the land from a farting dragon. On the run to escape prejudice and persecution and save precious and holy texts from being burned, their quest drives them forward to a final showdown at Mont Saint-Michel, where all will come to question if these children can perform the miracles of saints. Join William, an oblate on a mission from his monastery; Jacob, a Jewish boy who has fled his burning village; and Jeanne, a peasant girl who hides her prophetic visions. They are accompanied by Jeanne’s loyal greyhound, Gwenforte . . . recently brought back from the dead. Told in multiple voices, in a style reminiscent of The Canterbury Tales, our narrator collects their stories and the saga of these three unlikely allies begins to come together.

 

I already started reading this book and I enjoyed it so far. It’s not my favorite book and I don’t agree with everything in it but I really enjoy the authors writing style. I am unaware if this book has magic in it yet. I think that having powers is not the same as doing magic spells but it depends on the book. If you guys get what I am trying to say then Excellent- but if you don’t then go get a cup of tea and keep reading.

If you guys get what I am trying to say then Excellent- but if you don’t then go get a cup of tea and keep reading. Otherwise, the book is great so far, I love the historical feel.

Ava: What! You did all of that?
MWB: YUP…
Ava: Why?
MWB: Did I tell you that I made Jane Austen rename several of her books?
Ava: No… WAit! You made her rename them!

The Chronicles of Evie and Scarlett

The Chronicles of Evie and ScarlettThe Chronicles of Evie and Scarlett.png

Hello, my friends! I am writing a book series! I am super excited to share this with you guys! I have started many stories, but I have never actually finished them! I have been thinking awhile about what I should write about, I was going to write a Fantasy-Sci-fi series, but everything I thought about already existed. So I decided maybe I could write a Christian romance series for preteens and teens, (I have a knack for romance, yet I don’t read romance, but I do think about romance sometimes…so yeah) Anyways, I thought that maybe I won’t rush into the romance, but later in the series it will have some slight romance. Then I thought, maybe I can just forget about romance and write those novels later and just do something that will take girls interest away from boys and not act boy crazy (I’m not boy crazy at all, I just make up a lot of romance stories with my original characters.) Anyways, I think during preteen and teen years girls should focus on growing closer to God and finding out what their true interests are. Learn new things and try new things that are okay with your parents. So, here I am rambling when I could have just said, I am writing a book for preteens and teens about these two best friends who go on adventures in everyday life.

Wow, Ava. That’s a nice big paragraph you have there.

Okay now, let’s meet the main characters.

Meet Evie Parker:

Evie is a clever 12-year-old girl who just finished 7th grade. She is the oldest of 8 children and is homeschooled by her really cool mom. Evie is bubbly and artistic and always has an idea that usually turns into trouble. Evie loves to read and write novels. She also loves to write poetry and usually submits her work into magazines and contests.

Meet Scarlett Luther:

Scarlett is a feisty 13-year-old girl, who is a rebel at heart. She loves archery and swimming, she also enjoys pranking her brothers. Scarlett is homeschooled and lives with her parents and two older brothers. She loves reading mysteries and hopes to solve a mystery of her own. She does huge experiments in her garage which usually turns into a catastrophe. She also likes to babysit younger children.

Summary of book one:

12-year-old Evie Parker is super excited when she wins the National Youths Poetry contest, plus when she finds out that the award ceremony is in the UK, one of her favorites countries and that she is riding a plane there all by herself. When she meets Chimere a talented poetess and artist she becomes inspired and strives to inspire someone else. But when Chimere leads her astray, Evie is tempted to follow.                                  Will Evie have the strength to resist temptations?

Letters to Unknown: Chapter one

Dear Unknown.png

Dear Unknown,

Hello, my name is Femi. Yes, Femi. I saw this notebook open and I just started to write to you. I think it’s a little dangerous to put your address on the front of a notebook and leave it. What if I was some creepy stranger and I tried to kidnap you? Anyways I am 16 and I love to write. Btw will you write back to me or not. Never mind that, I also was wondering WHO ARE YOU, are you a girl or a boy? What’s your name? How old are you? Thanks for leaving this out here, I really would like haveing someone to talk to.

 Sincerely,

                                         Femi

Femi smiled as she placed the notebook into the mailbox. She walked back across the street and into her house. She had recently found an empty notebook at the library with an address on the cover. Inside the book was a letter saying to write back and send the person the notebook. She thought it sounded like fun… do she did it.  The only problem was that she didn’t know who the person was, it was left hidden- sorta like a mystery. Femi sighed and sat on her bed. The mail man would be coming any second. He would pick up her notebook and send it to the unknown person, and they would become friends! She smiled as she thought her whole plan out in her head. All of a sudden the doorbell rang. Femi rushed downstairs. A package- for her! On top of the package in permanent marker was her name. Femi. She picked up the package and escaped to her room. She slowly opened the package and saw the notebook. The same notebook she had just mailed. “Well, that was kind of creepy” Femi thought out loud as she opened the notebook. Next to her letter was another letter from unknown. Femi smiled… but in seconds her smile turned to a face of horror.

 

To be continued….
