The Marvels was the newest book by Brian Selznick (author of Hugo) and it was told in two parts half illustrated the story of the acclaimed acting family The Marvels and the other half tells the story of a rejected child rediscovering himself through their stories, it is very gripping until it reaches a very emotional anti-climactic ending that leaves you thinking about it for days. It represents a tale of having to grow up and how nothing in childhood remains pure.

The Lost Boy is a stunning graphic novel with beautiful black and white illustrations, and a fantastic narrative with great writing and one of the best comics i’ve read there is a very strong sense of mystery, and fantastical elements.

Pottermore Presents is a string of informative e-books by J.K Rowling , they are well written but are overall unnecessary with not much information that anyone really wants to know. Only for die-hard fans.

The 8th installment in the Harry Potter series was met with a-lot of criticism but I really did not see the big deal because I really enjoyed it. Other than the format it was written it seems like the logical processor in the series with great characters and the play was really good because it could give the trademark depth of Rowling.

I personally think J.K Rowling’s writing for this was the crucial thing that made it feel like Potter and this book is really perfect for any collector.

Ethan’s Voice brings mental illness to children, in a relatable way. Very well written and creative. A must read for anyone below the age of 12.

I had to read A Midsummer Night’s Dream for school and it is obviously really amazing not much has to be said except Shakespeare done it again.
