Review by: Riya
My current book type: Horror,mystery

Why I chose this book: I chose this book because I have read the first book of the series and i really liked it. I picked this book i want to watch the movie after i read it.

Is this book what I expected? This is book is exactly what i expected it to be because the first book was a horror genre. This book is even more scarier with a lot more character that i think are really cool.

My current book type: Horror

This book is about a girl named Bella. She has moved from Arizona to a very wet and rainy area in Washington The town is called forks. She falls in love with this guy named Edward. She later finds out that he is a vampire.

I like the protagonist of the book, because she is very brave and she can make decisions for herself. One thing I dont like about this book is that the author takes a long time resolving the conflict.

Five Patients by Michael Crichton

Genre: Mystery
Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆, an all-time favorite
Total number of pages: 246

Review by: David
My current book type: Mystery

So the book i’m reading is about surgeons helping different patients. There are a total of 5 Patients in this book and they all have different surgical problems. the characters are Ralph Orlando, John O’Conner, Peter Luchesi, Sylvia Thompson, and Edith Murphy.

I really like how the author says a lot of things in detail about the patients and what happend to them and what is going to happen to them with how bad they are injured. For example in the chapter about Peter Luchesi and this part is my favorite, the author says a lot of what happend to him in the field and how it happend and how the surgeons are going to help him recover in both a surgical way and physical way. The best thing in this book is that the author puts tehe actual operation in the text and the steps the take to help him
