The Hunger Games is a book everyone has been raving about. If you've watched the movie or read the book, you'll know what I mean when I say that this was an OUTSTANDING book and while I enjoyed the movie, I'll have to say the book was much better and Suzanne Collins is a really talented author.
It was an extraordinary book. Full stop. There's nothing more I can say. The story was so well written that I felt like I was living in it. The characters were really well illustrated and it had just enough humour, just enough action, and a lot of thrill. I also love how they had such a sad part that almost moved me to tears. I think my favourite thing about the book would be the main her character, Katniss Everdeen. She has a strong personality and isn't afraid to take charge, but she isn't perfect either. So overall, go to your nearest bookstore, grab a copy and START READING. You will not be disappointed, I promise.

Seen this before? It's from the movie Inception! Have you watched it? I watched it last week and I was mesmerized by it.
Inception was a great movie, which had a deep plot and a stupefying message. But like any other movie, it had its flaws. The beginning of the movie was boring, and didn't really catch my attention. After that, it started getting interesting and the movie eventually started building up. I was at the edge of my seat at the climax and I loved how director Christopher Nolan ended the movie.
The end of the movie is so perfect and confusing, it leaves you staring at the screen with your mouth hanging open.

The feeling you get when you open a new book, taking in the musty, papery smell, your eyes following the words as they dance across the page is indescribably marvelous. It happens every time I open a book. How do you feel when you open a book?
Here are some of my recommendations. These books are intriguing and I can't stop reading them.
A Series of Unfortunate Events
This series of stories by Lemony Snicket is quite mysterious, yet it's hard to put it down once you start reading. The series follow the lives of the Baudelaire orphans, Violet, Klaus and Sunny. The adventures they encounter are unpredictable and fascinating, so make sure you try it. The books always have miserable endings, which is why I recommend it to people who loathe the usual 'happily ever after.'
This original story by Michael Morpurgo really touched me. It's about a young boy called Michael, who gets stranded on an island, only to find that a Japanese man called Kensuke lives there. They both get along as they learn to survive together. I don't want to ruin the ending for you, but it was an amazingly written story. Michael Morpurgo's other stories are some of my favourites too, like Mr. Skip and Kaspar the Prince of Cats.
The Star of Kazan
Eva Ibbotson's book was one that enjoyed reading the first time and loved reading again and again. The book describes the like of Annika, an foundling who lives in Vienna with servants Ellie and Sigrid who work for three professors. Annika has always dreamed about her mother, so when an aristocrat arrives on the doorstep and claims Annika as her daughter, she is overjoyed. But this book has quite an unexpected ending, and I think you should give it a try.
