Welcome to the first blog by West Heath Teenage Reading Group! These are three books we have read and enjoyed recently.
The Host - Stephenie Meyer
When I first read this book I instantly fell in love with it. Although it is written by the same author as Twilight it is much more mature and the characters are more interesting. It is about a world where humans were taken over by aliens. A girl gets taken over but is determined to get back to the people she loves. She fights to gain their trust and to make the person she loves believe her human side is still present. I would recommend this book to anyone – especially girls aged 13+.
Rozen Maiden - Peach-Pit
I like the Rozen Maiden series, especially volume 2 and 6 because in these books the series takes a step away from horror and forces you to love living dolls. The series is about Jun, a teenage boy who refuses to leave his home and is mysteriously sent a magical living doll called Shinku. Each doll is unique and it really depends on what type of character you like as to who is your favourite. Despite the series focussing on living dolls the writing by Peach-Pit means the series has things that all genders can enjoy.
Summer’s Dream – Cathy Cassidy
I liked this book as it was very grabbing and you always want to know what happens next. It is about a girl called Summer who loves ballet and aches for her dreams.
