Author: Stephanie Meyer
Twilight is a romantic story about a high school romance….but different. This book is a sure hit with female teens and even some adults.
Twilight is about a girl named Bella Swan, when her Mother has to go away with her stepfather, she has to move in with her father in a small town named Forks. When Bella moves to Forks she meets old friends, and makes new ones. But she is completely mystified with one person… Edward Cullen, she cant keep her eyes off him, but soon she realises that he has a secret…..
I love Twilight and its series. They just keep you captivated so you just want to keep turning every page to see what happens next! I loved it so much I read it every night just waiting until I could read new moon (the next volume in the series) to see what happens! It’s like the most unlikely fairy tale! The clumsy awkward girl falls for the bad guy!!!
I recommended Twilight for young female teens an onwards. Although I recommended twilight for girls some boys may also enjoy this book too.
Thanks Cassie for your great review!

Jack is the chosen one, only with his help can the city of London be turned to gold -- so Jack is kidnapped by an alchemist determined to do just that.
There's kind of off the wall charm and a simplicity that gives this book a fairy tale feel - not to mention all the crazy fantastical beings, a dragon, a knight in shining armour, several orphans, and of course the heroine of Tanglewreck brought back in time especially. All of which makes this a must read for all those who enjoyed Tanglewreck - for although it's not really a sequel it does feel like one.

The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's nest is a bloody good aeroplane read, it's got suspense, drama, great characters, it's well written and can be read by literary as well as crime buffs. A great final book for the series that started so well with "The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo."
