Artemis Fowl

by Eoin Colfer
Artemis Fowl is a story about a young teenager named Artemis going on a rather unexpected, yet planned adventure with his butler ironically named Butler, and Butler’s niece. This story involves fairies but it’s not a fairy-tale, technology although it’s not a sci-fi and lasers, explosions and evil plots even though it’s not adventure.
The storyline goes like this; Artemis Fowl lived in a rich family, with a mansion, butlers and bodyguards. But one day for reasons unknown the Fowl family lost their fortune that they earned through a string of crimes. After his father’s death and his mother’s… let’s say condition, Artemis was determined to regain his family’s fortune even if it involves kidnapping fairies and understanding technology way ahead of his time.

Give Peas a Chance

By Morris Gleitzman
If short, action packed, funny stories are your thing then Give Peas a Chance is definitely the book for you. I don’t personally like reading but when I read this book I loved it. The short stories got straight to the point and got me totally engaged. Plus there was a huge variety of short stories. I never knew what I was going to be reading next. Some stories had me in stitches laughing and some had me off my seat in excitement waiting to see what would happen next. So if you love short stories I totally would recommend this brilliant book to read. I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did.
