This is the resident fourteen year old’s list of essential reads for any teenaged bookworm. As for the reporter, there was none. He just mailed the list to me. When I asked about Harry Potter he shrugged and replied, ‘That’s kind of understood, no, for everyone?’ Yeah, I broke a rule by questioning his list and got suitably punished by the sarcasm-dipped answer. Here goes the list:
- Cherub by Robert Muchamore: I like this book because of the action, and the whole concept of children being spies.
- Fablehaven by Brandon Mull: I love the idea of there being a secret world in one’s backyard.
- Butter by Erin Lange: Deals with how a kid wants to be popular and what he does to be popular. Love it.
- Dead Ends by Erin Lange: I like this because it is one of those rare books which is narrated by a bully.
- Girl, Missing by Sophie McKenzie: A gripping plot about a girl who travels to the other side of the globe in search of answers.
- Bodyguard by Chris Bradford – “The best bodyguard is the one no one notices.” Edge of the seat kind of a read.
- Spook’s Series by Joseph Delaney : This book narrates the story of Tom Ward and how he is apprenticed to the local spook.
- The Medusa Project by Sophie McKenzie : Incredible plot. And the idea of Medusa Gene – awesome.
- Divergent Series by Veronica Roth : Divergent is a dystopian series with the protagonist Beatrice Prior being very different from others. Again, loved it.
- Gone by Michael Grant: The only thing I can say about this book is that if you ever wished that there were no adults, think again. Read!
Good job, dude.
What? There is no way I am thanking him for the list! I have earned it by way of an endless supply of books, and the fact that courier guys are practically family now.
