- Catwings By Ursula K. Le Guin
Well, I loved the book because I love cats. I loved all the cats in the book.

- The Mark of Athena By Rick Riordan
I like this book of the series because, all the characters meet. It is the most exciting book so far. They are always risks and making sacrifices. I like how they are about the gods. This book was awesome.

- Unnatural Creatures Selected by Neil Gaiman
Unnatural Creatures was a very interesting novel. It was compromised of many different stories about imaginary creatures. I didn't really like the idea of mashing different stories together because you have to remember the different stories, and some stories were hard to comprehend, in my mind. The novel did keep me reading it for all of eternity, though. My favorite story was definitely the one about the Griffin and the Minor Canon. I think the author, Neil Gaiman, intended for an audience of people who love unrealistic characters. I thought that it was going to be about supernatural animals, but in reality it is really about talking animals.

- The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug directed by Peter Jackson
I enjoyed this film a lot. There was a lot of action and battle but also journeying. It left off on a cliffhanger ending, which I will not spoil. Also, there are many suspenseful scenes that make you wonder what will happen. I would recommend this movie to everyone who is interested in battle and fantasy.
