Skulduggery Pleasant - book review

Skulduggery Pleasant is a great book written by Derek Landy. It is the first in the series. While you are reading the book you follow the story of Stephanie Edgley as she learns that there is another world inside her own. The story begins when Stephanie's uncle Gordon dies just after finishing one of his novels. Stephanie learns soon after about this strange new world when she is attacked by a mysterious creature looking for the key. While this creature is trying to kill Stephanie the doors of the house blow off and in comes Skulduggery Pleasant. Stephanie finds out about Skulduggery the dead Skeleton detective and becomes his partner to held find the sceptre of the ancients and stop Skulduggery's arch enemy Nefarian Serpine and save her world from the magical gods the Faceless Ones. Skulduggery Pleasant is a funny, horror, Sci - Fi. Abook that just wants you to keep reading. I suggest this book for advanced readers who enjoy a good book. I would rate it a seven out of ten and say I can't wait to read the next one.

The Boy Who Lost His Face

The Boy Who Lost His Face is written by Louis Sachar. This book is about David Ballinger's life. It starts off when David is trying to impress the cool kids by helping to steal an old woman’s cane. when the boys took the cane David flipped the old lady off and she put a curse on him "Your Doppelganger will regurgitate on your soul!” David first thought this was nothing but when he was going through his everyday life everything that the boys did to the old lady started happening to him. When David asks for her too take the curse off him she demands her cane back. If you want too know what happened in the rest of the book you have too read the book. Overall I would rate this book a six out of ten. It wasn't as good as previous Louis Sachar books I've read but I would recommend it for people who like reading chapter books that aren't to long.
