Title: Allegiant
Author: Veronica Roth
Star Rating: 4/5
Review: This was the third book in the Divergent trilogy. But it was very different from the first two books, but a good different.  It’s now half in Tobias’s eyes, and half in Tris’s eyes.  The factions have been destroyed, but its the Allegiant versus the factionless.  The Allegiant are the faction-wanters, they want to keep the system of factions.
This book has a lot more suspense in it then the rest of the trilogy, and I really enjoyed this one.

Title: Survivors: A Hidden Enemy
Author: Erin Hunter
Star Rating: 3/5
Review: This was the second book in the Survivors series.  This series focuses around a dog named Lucky, and his adventures with other dogs.
In the first book, Lucky had traveled with his sister, Bella, and her tiny pack of dogs.  All the dogs were Leashed Dogs, meaning they belonged to the ”Longpaws”, or the humans.  Lucky was trying to get the Pack to be like a real, organized pack.
However, in book 2, Lucky acts as a spy for Bella’s Pack, in the Wild Pack by the lake, so Bella’s Pack would be able to get water and food.  
I was never a big Survivors fan, I always preferred Warriors and Seekers, but I really enjoyed this one!

Title: Seekers: The Quest Begins
Author: Erin Hunter
Star Rating: 3/5
Review: This was the first book in the Seekers series.  It’s about three bears who are all separated from their families, and go on a quest to save all bears.  The three bears are Toklo (grizzly), Kallik (polar), and Lusa (black).  Each chapter is a different bear’s perspective, and each has a quite a different story to tell.
I used to be a big fan of the Seekers series, but around last year, I stopped reading the Seekers books. When I read this again, it wasn’t quite how I remembered it, but it was worth reading again.

Title: Chibi Vampire, The Novel #1
Author: Tohru Kai
Star Rating: 4/5
Review: At first,  I thought it would be a complete adaptation of the manga, but it was completely different. It was in between mangas 5-6, so I didn’t quite understand completely, but it was a really good book.  It almost was if it wasn’t a manga, and I could never put it down. I reccomend this book for older kids, because some parts it was a bit inappropriate.

Title: The Last Forever
Author: Deb Caletti
Star Rating: 4/5
Review: I really enjoyed this book.  The book was focused more on family and change. The beginning was slow and hard to understand, but once I got into the book I could follow what was going on better. The characters in the book are really different and interesting. The characters change a lot throughout the book, especially Tess, the main character, and her father. Both of these characters also build a stronger bond with each other throughout the book. This book has a love story I it, but this is not the main focus of the book and I didn’t like how this part of the story ended. Overall, this book was interesting and would recommend to people who are maybe put down or sad because this is a very inspirational book.

Title: Chibi Vampire Volume 3
Author: Yuna Kagesaki
Star Rating: 4/5
Review: This was the thrid volume in the Chibi Vampire series. This one was more about Kenta discovering her secret identity, and Kenta keeping it a secret. This one had me holding on, never putting it down. Ren no longer seems hidden. Anju is shown to have amazing skills with bats. Calera explains a vampire’s craving for blood. I loved this volume, and reccommend it to 12-14 year olds, because some of it gets a little inappropriate.
