Hatchet Book 1- Book review

I'm stuck on a stranded island, with nothing but a few coins,  a nail cutter, clothes on my back and a Hatchet..

I am reading HATCHET. An inspiring adventure by Gary Paulsen. When I read the first book, I loved it from the start to the end. It teaches how to survive in the wilderness, like building a shelter and creating fire! Or  how to build a bow and arrow to catch fish and even how to cook! The boy -Brian- peserveres to survive, and what he has been through is just unbelievable. A few parts are a bit shattering with the weather conditions and injures. The Author is very good at describing of how the characters are feeling and what the scenes look like, its as if we are looking right at it. Ever since I started reading the first book, I began reading the 2nd book-The Return. It just became more exciting when I started reading the 3rd book- Winter. I'm looking forward to reading other books written from Gary Paulsen.

"Heart-stopping ...somewhere beyond adventure"-Publishers Weekly

I think that everyone will enjoy this book. HATCHET

Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief book review

Monsters sniffing your scent so they can find you and kill you.Greek gods trying to kill you just because you were born.This is Percy Jackson's daily life.Percy Jackson was just a 12 year old until he discovered he was a half blood.

This book is about Percy Jackson going to Camp Half Blood here he learns about his awesome abilities and the truth about his life. His father is Poseidon a powerful sea god, which makes Percy one of the most powerful half blood but that also means that Poseidon broke an oath that he made on the river Styx and making an oath there is really powerful.At camp he gets sent on a quest with his best friends Grover and Annabeth to stop a war because Zeus thought that Poseidon stole his master bolt and Percy and his friends have to stop the war from starting before the summer solstice which is in 1 week.On the way he gets on lots of detours
I like this book because of it's twists and turns and how the author has put lots of creativity, action and humor into it. The book is on the New York times children's Best Seller list, on Young Adult Library Services Association's Best Books for Young Adult and on other awards.This book is suitable for ages 9-11

My rating is 10/10
