My Sister The Vampire: Switched

This book is about when two girls find out that they are identical twin sisters. They encounter some problems at a Halloween ball and they have to switch! But one of them has a secret... a dark secret. I like this book because every sentence makes sense and it's a very exciting book. Once you read it you can't put it down! I don't like this book because some of the chapters are too long!

Lions

This book is about what lions are like, how they catch their prey and what's the difference between a male and female lion. I like this book because it got me very interested. The reason why I got interested was because it explained so many things. Also as I was reading I was like "Ohh I wonder what happens next" , I guess this is the end!
