    "ERAGON is fantastic! It's marketed as a YA book, but it's perfect for adults who like a fun fantasy as well. A perfect escape and with summertime knocking at our door, I highly recommend it as a beach read. The best part to me? It's the first in a series, so as soon as you finish it, you can move right on to the next one! "

    "Continuation of the Harry Potter series. While opening on a dark tone, the story quickly returns to its trademark whimsy, using a series of short scenes with the Dursleys to review what’s happened before returning to Hogwarts, with a slight detour to watch a magical championship. "

    "A Song of Ice and Fire is an epic story that young adults will be able to relate to because of all the trials in the books and difficulties to overcome. This is the series that Game of Thrones came from, so its a must for pop culture literacy too."

    "I found the solution of The Lost Hero when I was searching for best YA books about dragons. The photo of the book shows kids riding on a dragon and the description mentions "flying on a mechanical, 60-foot dragon". I am familiar with this author and know that he is one of the best fantasy YA authors so this is a perfect solution."

    "It's an OK book but not particularly well written. It's good for young adults - I liked the characters and some of the chapters kept me on edge, but overall it was just OK. Sam's character is really well done."

    "His Majesty's Dragon (Temeraire) is one of the best YA books about dragons. This page turner will keep you reading until the book is over. The pages are very nice and papery and the story has lots of words and occasional punctuation. If you like dragons and books, you should read this."

    "I like the idea of introducing young readers to the concept of Atlantis, considering how popular it is as an idea in fiction and movies. I'm also all for books dedicated to illustrating strong, young women. However, the cover is a joke and makes it look like a cheap romance."
