Sphinx's Princess

Hiya everyone! I know I know it's been forever but to make it up to you I have a great book to review! It's called SPHINX'S PRINCESS.  It is about a girl who is promised to marry a man that she hates. This story takes place in ancient Egypt. As soon as you begin reading you fall in love with the unique strong willed characters, and the amazing plot of a girl who wants to do more than what women back then were allowed to do. This amazing story by Esther M. Friesner (CLICK HERE to bye the book on Amazon) will leave you on the edge of your seat because just when you think the story is getting good they get even better! Now I don't know if this is a series or not because on Amazon it said "(Princesses of myth)" next to the title but not on the book. What I do know, that there is a sequel to this book called Sphinx's Queen. I haven't read this book yet only because it hasn't yet arrived to my public library. I would recommend this book for anyone 5th grade and up (depending on the reader). Ms. Friesner has a ton of other books as well, you can check them out at her WEBSITE.  
Thanks for reading please comment!

The Wizard the Witch, and Two Girls From Jersey

 Hi everyone, sorry it's been so long! Today I'm reviewing a book called The Wizard, the Witch, and Two Girls From Jersey. As awesome a title as that is, I actually came across this fairytale-with-a-twist by accident. This fantasy, by Lisa Papademetriou, is about two girls (guess where they're from) who get sucked into a book and are mistaken as the main character. I really enjoyed this book, and not only because of the loveable dragons, wise wizards (alliteration not intended) and, of course, Jersey girls, but also because of the clever characters and the amazing plot! Although I read this book in 7th grade, I think that it is good for anyone 6th grade and up. The only thing I personally didn't like about the story was the ending. It didn't have a bad ending, just not what I expected. This being said, it was definitely worth the read and I would really like to hear how you guys liked the ending! This book was published in 2006, but Lisa Papademetriou recently came out with a book called Siren's Storm. I haven’t read this book yet, but it looks really good, so anyone who has read it, tell me how you liked it! 
Here's the author's website:  Lisa Papademetriou

That’s all for now. Keep reading!
