Book review on Harry Potter by Megan

In my opinion, the Harry Potter books are some of the best. My favourite would either be the one with the Tri-wizard Tournament or the Deathly Hallows. But I think it is best to start from the first book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone by J.K. Rowling. My favourite part of the book is when the half-giant called Hagrid barges into where Harry is and proclaims, “Yer a wizard, Harry!”.  My least favourite part was when Harry saw Voldemort’s face.

I recommend this book to everyone because it is interesting and fun.

I give this book 100/5.

Book review on Land of Stories by Megan

One of my favourite series is the Land of Stories series by Chris Colfer. My friend said it would be best to read from the beginning because then you would understand the whole concept of the story. So the first book is called the Wishing Spell. It’s about how twins stumble into the fairytale world where the evil queen is terrorizing the land. The twins need to find the items for the Wishing Spell in order to get home. But something may be in their way…

My favourite part is when they meet this frog man which they call Froggy. I would recommend this book/series for 8-15 year olds because it is more childish, but also adventurous, humorous, energetic and exciting.

I would rate this book 90/5.

Book Review on The Unwanteds

The book, The Unwanteds by Lisa McMann is about twins Aaron and Alex who get separated.  Aaron is put with the strong people but Alex is sent to die because of his artistic abilities. But instead of dying, he and his fellow friends meet a very interesting man and his artistic world where you can draw, paint, tell stories…and use art as a weapon.

I liked this book because it was fantasy and I like fantasy books.  I also liked it because it was funny at points. My favourite part was when the battle between Artime and Quill begins and ends.

Anybody who would love a fantasy book would love this book. Fantasy and art and magic come together really nicely and it is a fun series to read.

4.7 stars/5
