Matthew Skelton – Endymion Spring
- Publisher: Puffin

- Part of a series: No
Blake is a boy, living together with his mother and little sister in Oxford, St. Jerome´s College. Often he spends his time in the library. One day he finds a strange book, which bites him and has first only blank pages and then after a few moment suddenly appearing letters. The letters aren´t easy to understand for the boy and can only seen by him… Many years before the mystery has begun in dark times…
The book was recommended to me by a friend and it was real fun to read it. But because I only read it in the evenings it took long time to read it and I often forgot important things. So it is my fault and nothing wrong withe the book that I could not say it is wonderful. I think I can recommend it to all readers of exciting, mystery books but you have to read it without long breaks to have much fun.
Suzanne Collins – Hunger Games 01.
- Publisher: Scholastic Us
- number of pages: 454
- Part of a series: Yes, it is the first part of a trilogy.
Katniss is a sixteen years old girl living in future. Her home-country is separated in 12 districts and every year there are the „Hunger Games“, when two kids of each district fight against each other in a cruel reality show.
I have heard much about this story and was looking forward to read it. I loved Katniss, Peter and some oft the other characters from the beginning till the end. Great how Suzann Collins develops the story. The last 150 pages I was not able to put away the book, me and my boyfriend used almost every minute to read and have been really excited how everything will end. It was wonderful. Hopefully the next part is as good as the first one was. I can recommend it to all readers, which like books, that take place on the future but the have to be old enough. In my opinion the book is nothing for young readers.
