2. WARP #2: The Hangman’s Revolution by Eoin Colfer

3. WARP #1: The Reluctant Assassin by Eoin Colfer

4. Wizarding World Movie Magic
This is so self explanatory. With original sketches from Fantastic Beasts and Harry Potter, this must have companion is perfect for the Harry Potter fan in your life. Or you. It is totally amazing and deserves way more reads than the average person may give it. READ IT!! Please?
5. Kane Chronicles #2: Throne of Fire by Rick Riordan
Well, the gods are loose. What’s new with Rick Riordan? Carter and Sadie are in big trouble with no parents and crazy powers. And Sadie’s crush on Anubis. They don’t have too much time to master their skills before apocalypse. They need to revive Ra to have any chance at all. I wonder how that will play out? The other books are The Red Pyramid and The Serpent’s Shadow.
6.Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard: The Hammer of Thor by Rick Riordan
Another Rick Riordan book. Thor’s hammer is gone again. This is becoming a disturbing habit. It’s not lost though. It’s in enemy hands. Magnus, Sammy and the others better get it back from Loki quickly, or Ragnarok will be here before they know it. The other two books are The Sword of Summer and coming soon, The Ship of Death.
7. Beyonders #1: A World Without Heroes by Brandon Mull
Strange music from the mouth of a hippo. The kid hearing this has problems. The hippo swallows him when he falls in (of course!) and takes him to Lyrian. In the past, he’d be welcomed. Nope. Not since Maldor took power. After he meets RAchel and a rag-tag group of rebels, they learn to piece together a word of power that can take down MAldor and restore balance to this world without heroes. The other books are Seeds of REbellion and Chasing the Prophecy.
8. The Peculiar by Stefan Bachmann
Lying low means staying alive. Bartholomew and Hettie live in faerie slums and are peculiar. Neither faerie or human want anything to do with them. Well, that’s not fully true. They want to hang them, but that’s about it. Read this if steampunk is your thing. According to Goodreads, part murder mystery, part gothic fantasy, part steampunk adventure, The Peculiar is Stefan Bachmann’s riveting, inventive, and unforgettable debut novel. Don’t know, haven’t read it yet.
9. iFunny by James Patterson
