Ms Ambrosini

Thor’s hammer is missing again. The thunder god has a disturbing habit of misplacing his weapon-the mightiest force in the Nine Worlds. But this time the hammer isn’t just lost, it has fallen into enemy hands. If Magnus Chase and his friends can’t retrieve the hammer quickly, the mortal worlds will be defenseless against an onslaught of giants. Ragnarok will begin. The Nine Worlds will burn. Unfortunately, the only person who can broker a deal for the hammer’s return is the gods’ worst enemy, Loki-and the price he wants is very high.

The Iron Traitor by Julie Kagawa Book #2 the iron fey : call of the forgotten series

Posted on

After his unexpected journey into the lands of the fey, Ethan Chase just wants to get back to normal. Well, as “normal” as you can be when you see faeries every day of your life. Suddenly the former loner with the bad reputation has someone to try for-his girlfriend, Kenzie. Never mind that he’s forbidden to see her again.
But when your name is Ethan Chase and your sister is one of the most powerful faeries in the Nevernever, “normal” simply isn’t to be. For Ethan’s nephew, Keirran, is missing, and may be on the verge of doing something unthinkable in the name of saving his own love. Something that will fracture the human and faery worlds forever, and give rise to the dangerous fey known as the Forgotten. As Ethan’s and Keirran’s fates entwine and Keirran slips further into darkness, Ethan’s next choice may decide the fate of them all.

Between the lines

Posted on

Delilah, a loner hates school as much as she loves books—one book in particular. In fact if anyone knew how many times she has read and reread the sweet little fairy tale she found in the library, especially her cooler than cool classmates, she’d be sent to social Siberia . . . forever.To Delilah, though, this fairy tale is more than just words on the page. Sure, there’s a handsome (well, okay, incredibly handsome) prince, and a castle, and an evil villain, but it feels as if there’s something deeper going on. And one day, Delilah finds out there is. Turns out, this Prince Charming is not just a one-dimensional character in a book. He’s real, and a certain fifteen-year-old loner has caught his eye. But they’re from two different worlds, and how can it ever possibly work? (Blurb).

 A classic fairy tale with a modern twist, ‘Between the lines’ is a written collaboration by Jodi Picoult and daughter Samantha Van Leer. Two years in the making sacrificing weekends and holidays,  mother and daughter shared ideas and worked together to create a clever, imaginatively unique story of adventure, sadness, loss and laughter. With plenty of colour throughout the book, you will come accross beautiful illustrations of  the Prince on his to quest to save Princess Seraphina from the evil villain.

Audience:

Years 7-8   

Average rating: 3.5 stars

Happy reading!

It’s a brave new world. ‘My name is Kyle Straker. And I don’t exist anymore.’ So begins the story of Kyle Straker, recorded on to old audio tapes. You might think these tapes are a hoax. But perhaps they contain the history of a past world…If what the tapes say are true, it means that everything we think we know is a lie. And if everything we know is a lie does that mean that we are, too?

Exciting Hunger Games Preview!!

Posted on

We are currently awaiting the very much anticipated Hunger Games film preview.

If you haven’t read the series yet, you MUST get your hands on a copy before 23rd March 2012. Ask Santa for a copy, pool your lunch money, … do whatever you have to!

Three words to describe it …. dystopian ….twists …  thrilling! (With a sprinkling of romance 🙂

Producers Lionsgate have said that “…in an attempt to preserve the anticipation and mystery that fans are relishing, the trailer only shows footage from the first half of the film, chronicalling events leading up to but not including the Games themselves. After giving fans their first look at all the book’s beloved characters brought to life, giving viewers who haven’t read the book vital information about the world of Panem, the trailer ends with an electrifying cliffhanger right as Katniss enters the arena.”

 More information is being revealed about the new film. Check out the very impressive website here and watch the great trailer.

Visit the Capitol website – http://www.thecapitol.pn/

This is a must read! You have been warned!
