Fablehaven by Brandon Mull

Hey everyone! I haven't posted in ages! But since I'm back in school, and I had to do a book report, I decided to post this on here. (If you are my teacher reading this no, I did not plagiarize this from here I write on a blog and you can ask me about it if you want.)

Fablehaven by Brandon Mull is a well written novel about a magical world called Fablehaven. The main theme for this book would probably be family. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read about magical settings or magical worlds. The plot was intriguing and the characters felt like someone you could meet in real life. It was put together really well and it Fablehaven almost felt like a real place. The only problem I had with this book was that the plot felt a little rushed. Other than that this book met my expectations, (which were quite high to begin with), and might have went a little over them too. This book isn’t very long (only 351 pages) but it’s worth the read. But I bet what you guys want is the summary so here it is!

When Kendra and Seth have to go to their grandfather's house for two weeks, what they weren't expecting was a mansion. They certainly wasn't expecting fairies in his yard nor witches in the forest near his house. But unfortunately that's what they found. It is soon revealed that their grandfather is the caretaker of a magical preserve called Fablehaven, and he is testing them to see if they can be the next caretakers. But when something goes drastically wrong, the siblings must find a way to restore what was lost on their own.
I rate this book 4.5/5 Bookish Badges. Thanks for reading!

To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han

Hi Readers! 

Sorry for not posting in a month again (You'd think that with 10 writers we'd manage to keep up with posting) but I have a review for you today! Hopefully, we can post more since summer is over. (This review is probably going to be shorter than most)

This book is a YA novel with romance, drama, and all the good aspects of a YA novel. It's not fantasy, unlike most of the books I've reviewed, but it's perfect when you're in a book slump.

To All The Boys I've Loved Before is about Lara Jean Song, a sixteen year old Korean-American girl, who writes love letters. She keeps them in a hatbox her dead mother gave her (her dead mother is not a spoiler I swear). When she writes, she says all the things she never would say in real life, for they are for her eyes only. But when all her letters gets sent, her love life gets mixed up in ways she never imagined.

I rate this book 5/5 bookish badges. My favorite scene in this book is during Halloween and she dressed up as Harry Potter characters and it was amazing.

Thanks for reading!
