Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children Book 5
by Ransom Riggs

View in Library Catalog



This is the fifth book in the Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children series, and it does not disappoint. In this book, Jacob and his friends must decode ancient codes, which warn that their worst enemy, presumed dead, may not be dead. And he might come back more powerful than ever. But, there is a way to stop him. It exists in Noor, the newest to peculiar life. Looming in Jacob's mind are H's last words, "bring Noor to V." In this book you will follow Jacob, Noor, and his friends as they race to save peculiaridom. I think this was one of the best books in the series. I gave it five stars because it is filled with mystery and suspense, and you are glued to the book the whole time. It is a thrilling book with many adventurous twists. The only thing I didn't like was the absence of the original characters. In the first few books, you really got to know the original characters and spend a lot of time with them. I feel like the author has been replacing some of the beloved original characters with newer, flashier ones. Personally, I like the original characters better than some of the new ones, so that would be the only downside of the book for me. Other than that, it's great.

To Kill A Mockingbird
by Harper Lee

View in Library Catalog



To Kill a Mockingbird is a novel by Harper Lee published in 1960. It was immediately successful, winning the Pulitzer Prize, and has become a classic of modern American literature. The plot and characters are based on Lee's observations of her family, her neighbors and an event that occurred near her hometown of Monroeville, Alabama, and it's written from Scouts point of view. The book is about Atticus Finch, who appears as an unconventional hero and role model due to his morality rather than his physical capabilities. The theme of morals is apparent throughout the whole novel, especially in relation to religion and perception of sin. Although it was kind of long to read and the beginning few chapters were kind of slow, I still loved this book. I loved its characters. I loved its plot. And I loved the eloquent way in which Harper Lee wrote it. It made me laugh and it made me cry. The reason I gave this book 5 stars was because it taught us the difference between right and wrong. The values Atticus instilled in Jem and Scout were those who differentiated them from other kids there age. Atticus always made sure his kids were doing the right thing, he taught them to treat everbody with respect. Even with so much segregation and hatred around because of Tom Robinson's case Atticus still chose to stay positive and treat everybody with respect. I would highly recommend it to everyone.
