Book of the Week (4)

Book of the Week (4)
This is a weekly meme I'm doing to shine a light on a book that I think deserves a little more attention.
Fablehaven by Brandon Mull
published by Scholastics
$7.99 (paperback)
Genre: Middle Grade
351 pages
What it's about:
For centuries mystical creatures of all description were gathered into a hidden refuge called Fablehaven to prevent their extinction. The sanctuary survives today as one of the last strongholds of true magic. Enchanting? Absolutely. Exciting? You bet. Safe? Well, actually, quite the opposite...
Kendra and her brother, Seth, have no idea that their grandfather is the current caretaker of Fablehaven. Inside the gated woods, ancient lawes keep relative order among greedy trolls, mischievous satyrs, plotting witches, spiteful imps, and jealous fairies. However, when the rules get broken-Seth is a bit too curious and reckless for his own good--powerful forces of evil are unleashed, and Kendra and her brother face the greatest challenge of their lives. To save their family, Fablehaven, and perhaps even the world, Kendra and Seth must find the courage to do what they fear most.
This is a series my sister's students were always talking about, so she read them and then told me I HAD to read them. Fablehaven #1 grabbed my attention pretty fast and it didn't let go, not even after I finished the 5th and final book in the series. If you like Harry Potter and Percy Jackson, then you have to read Fablehaven. They are fun, gripping books that blew my mind. Especially book 4. yikes. I have my reviews for these books in my review page and I have my meeting Brandon Mull post in the archives.

I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
