I recommend this psychological thriller, it is a page turner. The author shows the points of view of the characters by chapters. A psychopath kidnaps four girls and keeps them in his cellar in his house. The psychopath has OCD characteristics, he likes things extremely clean and freaks out if he sees dirt. The girls are forced to clean to appease him.  Check out this book!

Old wolf is a great book in which the stories of two characters connect. The first is of an old wolf named Nashoba; leader of his wolf pack. His pack needs food, and a raven named Merla helps him. Unfortunately, a young wolf in his pack messes up the hunt and they all blame Nashoba. Then Casey, the new teenager who got a hunting bow for his birthday, is determined to make a kill. But in the end, he ends up giving Nashoba a ton of food to regain strength to rejoin his pack.  Check out this book!

Review
It all started with a falling toaster. A falling toaster and a garage sale. Nick had no idea what he was getting himself into when he turned on that lamp, and what he sells will change his life in the inherited Victorian house forever. A future predicting child's toy. A reel-to-reel that shows the truth. A wet cell that gives life. These are what bring Mitch, Caitlin, and Vince together to help Nick retrieve the other objects. Since page one, I had found this novel nearly impossible to put down. The characters, all having different stories and backgrounds, maintain the well develped plot, making it truly enjoyable. Although I enjoyed it greatly, the novel had a few scientific references that I did not understand. But nonetheless, I would recommend this novel to all types of readers.  Check out this book!

Two best friends, Greg and Earl, have only ever had each other, and until Rachel, the friendly neighborhood cancer victim shows up, lead a pretty average life of making spoof movies. Featured around Greg Gaines, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is an excellent novel with a view on cancer as never seen before. Although interesting, the novel reflects the author's profane personality (yes, I have met him) and is not suitable for younger readers. With the characters sarcastic comments and witty antics, Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is a book that will always bring a smile to your face.  Check out this book!

Starting off as a light-hearted manga series about a girl, whom is a commoner, getting sucked into the school's Host Club, filled with wealthy boys. Having to pose as a male host to pay off her debt, Haruhi Fujioka becomes best friends with these so-called hosts and leads an adventurous life in and outside of school. As an 18 book manga series, it was quick and fun to read, leaving you wanting more as the series comes to an end. Being the first manga/anime series I've ever had the pleasure of enjoying, it holds a special place in my heart, and I hope anyone that is open minded to different types of writing styles will give this series a try as well.  Check out this book!
