Why I read this book

#1 reason why I read this book, is because of its cover! It is interesting and mysterious and coughed my attention immediately as soon I saw it on the New York best sellers list. As soon as I read the back of the book, it made me pumped to read this book! Also this book has an awesome twist, and is filled with mystery and monsters.

Things I liked and disliked about this book

I really liked the mysterious photographs that were included in this book, its adds so much more interest to the book. I loved the adventures in mysterious island, abounded orphanage, and strange and monstrous, in a way, people. I love the story itself and loved authors writing style too. However, I didn't liked the how it ended as much, but thankfully there is a second book right after this one!

Favorite quote(s)

"I had just come to accept that my life would be ordinary when extraordinary things began to happen. The first of those came as a terrible shock and, like anything else that changes you forever, split my life into halves: Before and After." (page 8)

"When someone won't let you in, eventually you stop knocking." (chapter 4, page 88)

"I'm no expert on girls, but when one tries to pinch you four times, I'm pretty sure that's flirting." (chapter 7, page 90)

Everything else

I definitely recommend everyone to read this book. Its an easy read, has 352 pages, so it doesn't take long to read it. Its a book that would be hard to put it down, when you'll start to read it! If you like books like Harry Potter, Hunger Games, or Divergent, You will LOVE this book!
