Book Review: The Hurculeah Jones Mystery Series

Hello, Here is a book review for the best mystery series in the world: The Hurculeah Jones Mysteries!

The Books:

This series is really great because all the mysteries are so suspenseful, interesting, and intriguing, and as you get to know the characters it helps you understand more about the mystery.


Hercueah is a curious, normal, dramatic teenager who wants everything to happen all at once.

Meat is Herculeah's friend who doesn't fully support her love of sleuthing and is quite lazy.

Tarot is Herculeah's parot that says "Beware!" and "Oh, Mom!"

Herculeah's parents are police detectives and private eyes.

Meat's mom is making him eat weird stuff from a can.

I hope you read this series because it is amazing, and I suggest you read Dead Letter first because it is the best!

The Hunger Games: Book and Movie = AMAZING!!!

The Hunger Games book and movie are so fantastic!


     The Hunger Games takes place in a nation known as Panem after the destruction of North America by some unknown apocalyptic event. Panem consists of a wealthy Capitol and twelve surrounding, poorer districts under the Capitol's hegemonyAs punishment for a previous rebellion against the Capitol in which a 13th district was destroyed, one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 from each district are selected by annual lottery to participate in the Hunger Games, an event in which the participants (or "tributes") must fight in an outdoor arena controlled by the Capitol, until only one victor remains. The story follows 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen a girl from District 12 who volunteers for the 74th annual Hunger Games in place of her younger sister, Prim, who was formerly chosen. 


Ellis Shapiro-Barnum: "This book is amazing. It includes so much detail and suspense that keeps the reader hooked the whole time they read this book. Every sentence makes the reader want to know more. The characters are so well described that you automatically know the kind of person they are. This book is perfect for post-apocalyptic readers and people who enjoy nature and adventure. In addition, there is plenty of action."

Ellis Shapiro-Barnum: "Like the book The Hunger Games movie is wonderful, filled with the same kind of... detailed content they each share. Though unlike the book it includes less violence/gore, which has its pros and cons. This movie is so so so so so good, and it sometimes sad. Such as when Rue, a young tribute that Katniss befriends, dies, and when you hear the terrifying echos of a young girls screams as she is killed by a group of  bullying tributes, the Careers."

Book Review: Odd Velvet

Odd Velvet is about a girl who doesn't fit in
at her school. Once people realize how special
she is, she isn't so odd after all!
This a great, interesting, fun, and inspiring story that I am sure everyone who will read it will love it.
