In a cruel society where the population is separated into two castes — Enchanteds and Outsiders — Astrid and her family are considered the lowest of the low, without citizenship or magic. As the surrogate for Princess Renya, Astrid receives physical punishment if Renya steps out of line. It is truly a miserable existence — but it is one Astrid might be able to escape. Enter the Race of Oblivion, in which the drug Oblivion is used to wipe racers’ memories. It’s not an easy race — Astrid could very well end up dead. But if she wins, she could win freedom, citizenship for her entire family, and a
Fire and Heist is a novel about sixteen-year-old Sky Hawkins, who is a wyvern: a human that has the ability to transform into a dragon. Unfortunately, most wyverns nowadays have lost that ability. What they haven’t lost, however, is their culture of stealing—in wyvern society, leading your first heist is the most important milestone of your life, and it determines everything about where you belong in the wyvern social order. So when Sky’s mother goes missing on a failed heist, her family is shunned, she loses all her friends, and most of all, her boyfriend dumps her. In order to discover what
This is my favorite Spider-Man movie. After Avengers Endgame, Peter Parker has no mentor. In this new Spiderman movie Peter Parker is trying to overcome his sadness for losing Iron Man. He meets a new “superhero” named Mysterio who resembles a mentor quality of Tony Stark. Spiderman puts his trust in Mysterio only to be betrayed later. I had a spectacular time watching Spider-Man Far From Home because it was funny and entertaining. I recommend this movie to many Spiderman fans because it is the first and probably the best movie of Marvel’s Phase 4 section.

This is an action-packed book that was hard to look away from! I could not put this book down and I finished it quickly. The characters are very likeable and I enjoyed reading their experience. The plot is very interesting; the
The fifth season of LEGO Ninjago Masters of Spinjitzu was spooky/amazing. This season introduced a new threat that appeared at the end of season four. As I learned what this ghost wants throughout the season, I also learned newer information about Sensei Wu’s past. Now the ninja do not have their powers because a ghost named Morro possessed Lloyd. Moro is after the realm crystal that is in the first Spinjitzu Masters resting place with a location of unknown origin. The Ninja must race to the tomb before Moro can or else their world will be in danger. I loved watching season five because it
The fourth season of LEGO Ninjago Masters of Spinjitzu was mind-blowing. I loved watching every minute of it because it had a lot of action, adventure throughout a secret island, mystery about Zane, and suspense. This season began with the ninja going their separate ways after the death of Zane. Lloyd brings them together and they receive an invitation to the Tournament of Elements where they are promised that Zane is alive. Once the ninja go on the island, we learn interesting past information about Garmadon’s sensei. I had an amazing time watching season 4 because it was marvelous, and the
The second part of the third season of Ninjago Masters of Spinjitzu was outstanding. I loved how the ninja were backed into a corner but ended up figuring a way to win. The second part of the third season began with the Overlord capturing Lloyd and the ninja outnumbered by the amount of nindroids they had to face. The Overlord’s plan did not end up working so he knew that the only way to become his original form was to get the golden weapons that collided together in space. In these last few episodes of season three we see Kai, Cole, Jay, Zane, and Lloyd go up to space to save Ninjago City. I
The time has come for Lloyd to face his father and for the Ultimate Battle to begin. In the second season of LEGO Ninjago Masters of Spinjitzu the Serpentine are planning an attack while Stone Warriors attack Ninjago. Lord Garmadon takes the four golden weapons and then creates a mega weapon, and the ninja must train Lloyd for the Ultimate Battle. This new season has action, adventure to uncharted islands, mystery about the origins of the Dark Island, and family. I had an amazing time watching every second of the 2nd season of LEGO Ninjago because it was mind-blowing, and it was entertaining
The LEGO Ninjago Movie is my favorite LEGO movie because it has an amazing storyline with new designs for all of the characters and an amazing internal conflict for the Green Ninja. The movie begins with 5 teenage ninjas who protect Ninjago City from Lord Garmadon. The ninja always beat him until Garmadon comes across a weapon that could allow him to conquer Ninjago. The Green Ninja’s, Lloyd’s, father is Garmadon, and he gets teased about it every day from everyone in Ninjago. Lloyd thought that the only way to stop his father was to use the “Ultimate Ultimate Weapon'' but in doing so he
SHAZAM! is an amazing movie with comedy, action, suspense, and family. SHAZAM! is about a kid named Billy Batson who gets adopted by multiple group homes but always runs away from them to find his mom. He pushes everyone away because he is scared to let anyone in. My favorite part about SHAZAM! is DC’s form of Billy Batson in this movie. Regularly Billy Batson is supposed to be a kind, respectful, and courageous kid who wants to protect people but in SHAZAM! they made him have a self vs. self conflict to make himself understand that he is a hero. The movie starts with Billy becoming SHAZAM
Suicide Squad was a masterpiece. I watched this movie in theaters for the first time and I remembered how excited I was to see DC finally release a new world where they would introduce these new characters like Harley Quinn, Deadshot, and the Joker. I was even more happy when it was said that this movie's characters are in the same world as the Batman v. Superman’s universe.
Suicide Squad is about a band of criminal who have a chance to get a few years off their “lifetime” imprisonment sentence by completely a “save-the-world” mission instructed by the government. The Squad is trying to
The Rise of Skywalker had a tremendous battle with an amazing storyline that made the best conclusion for the Skywalker Saga. For many fans of the Skywalker franchise, it may be sad that it ends with this movie but once you watch it, it will blow your breath away. This movie was the best ending Star Wars could ever do for the Skywalker Saga. I loved this because this played back to Luke Skywalker trying to save Darth Vader. Instead in this Rey was given information about her past that changed her forever and which forced her to confront her fears of joining the dark side of the force with Kylo
These three movies are some of my favorite movies in the world. This bundle of DVDs will make a weekend worth being lazy. The first Star Wars movie is a masterpiece which leads to the second and then to the third in a continuous attention-grabbing storyline. There is action, adventure, and betrayal. The Star Wars 1-3 movies are sad at the end but are amazing to watch. Every Star Wars movie, so far, has had three movies to tell their story. These first 3 films entail the quest to find Anakin Skywalker. The first “Episode” leads with the discovery of Anakin Skywalker, a child on Tatooine, who
Solo begins with Han and Qi’Ra, a friend, escaping their home world. They get separated and Han goes on his mission to gain enough money to save his friend. This movie is my favorite Star Wars story and is a lot different than what you would expect from Han Solo. If you have not seen the original 4-6 Star Wars films then Hans Solo is an overconfident weasel who tries to talk his way out of debts that he gets into. It makes the movie seem funny when you see a younger version of Han Solo who is nothing like the older version. This movie is an amazing watch and I recommend it to people who love
Cars 3 is more like the first Cars movie. The main character in this movie is Lightning McQueen and he is faced with a new challenge in the racetrack. A new generation of race cars have been built which are faster and better at performing extreme events on the track. Lightning McQueen is faced with two options. He has to win the next race he goes in or he has to retire. This movie shows how he trains for that race and shows how he mentors a new racer. I recommend this movie for people who liked the previous two movies in the Cars series and I recommend this movie for people who like watching
The second book in Veronica Roth's Divergent series, Insurgent, is good, but it's underwhelming compared to its predecessor. As a war between the factions surges, Tris must make harsh decisions to save the people around her. This book was a rollercoaster, and while it wasn't boring by any means, it didn't quite capture my attention as Divergent did. I enjoyed Tris' realness; she is filled with flaws, but she is also brilliant, caring, and brave. Furthermore, I appreciated how realistic Tris and Tobias' relationship was; they had their fair share of ups and downs and share a significant
The book follows the life of 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives in poverty in a dystopian country called Panem, governed by the rich and cruel Capitol. She, along with a boy Peeta whom she kind of knows, is selected to compete in the Hunger Games, a life-or-death battle between twenty-three other teenagers where only one can survive. Katniss must balance surviving the Games and determining the seemingly endless limits of the Capitol’s cruelty, all while maintaining a relationship with Peeta that may or may not even exist.
There are many things I loved about the book. It offers

I first heard about this book on NPR and was intrigued enough to immediately put it on my holds list. You can find out more about how to make your own holds list here. Let me just say that this book did not disappoint!
Memory makes reality. That's the tag line of the latest thriller by Blake Crouch. Memory also makes you who you are. Remembering what you learned in school, a moment from childhood, your favorite Christmas, your first kiss; but what if what you remember isn't real?
Justin Kurzel’s newest film, Assassin’s Creed, has been called one of the best video game based movies made so far. Unfortunately, that isn’t much of a compliment. In this film Callum, played by Michael Fassbender, is captured by the Abstergo Corporation and placed into a machine, the Animus, in order to access and relive memories locked in his genetic code. Using these memories The Corporation, run by The Templars and the Assassin’s sworn enemies, hope to find an ancient relic that will allow them to take control of all free will. As convoluted as that sounds it is pretty much the plot of the
