Choke By: Obert Skye

 I really enjoyed the first book in this trilogy (Pillage). This one was a little harder to get through because it seemed very slow moving. In fact I have been reading a chapter here and there for quite some time now. But last night I finally finished it. and like true Obert Skye fashion that last few chapters had a lot of action and twists that kept me reading to find out what happened next. Here's a book description from Amazon. com...

"Choke, the second, continues the eccentric adventures of Beck Phillips, who seems to have a knack for causing mischief in the secluded village of Kingsplot. In book one, Beck used his unique gift to unexpectedly hatch several dragon eggs. Thankfully, the dragons were destroyed . . . or were they? In Choke, a stranger has discovered that Beck Phillips is the key to finding and hatching a lost dragon s egg a task that will bring the riches and fortune that Beck s family was destined to have. Beck learns that outward appearances can be deceiving and that grown-ups really do have valuable lessons to offer. Readers will laugh out loud at Beck s antics and sit on the edge of their seats while Beck and his friends confront Liz, the largest, most ferocious dragon Beck has ever seen!"

It's a fun book that I think any young reader would enjoy. The next and last book in this trilogy or pillogy as Obert Skye likes to call it. Is called Ambushed. I will probably read it cause I hate having a series unfinished but it may be awhile.

Mockingjay By: Suzanne Collins

I really enjoyed reading this series again. I was able to catch a lot of things I missed the first time since the first time I read it so fast. I took my time as I read through the series the second time. I will admit that I do still feel like I am hanging a little at the end of this book. But I do really love this series. And I will keep recommending it to anyone who hasn't read it. :) Now it's time to move on to books that are on my "to be read" list.
