    Maria Merryweather is a 13-year-old girl living in the year 1800s in England. Her parents are dead, and she can't go on living in her house in London, so she, her guardian Miss Heliotrope, and her dog Wiggins go to live at Maria's cousin Sir Benjamin's manor, Moonacre Manor. Moonacre Manor is located in a valley with a church, a village called Silverydew, woods, and a bay nearby. At the manor, Maria meets many people, including a boy named Robin, an old parson, and a woman named Loveday. There, she finds out that the men from the woods are causing trouble in Silverydew and won't allow the village children to play at the bay and won't sell the fish they catch to the villagers. Maria must do something, but what? Can she succeed where hundreds of past Merryweathers have failed? I liked this book because it has a lot of adventure and was funny, but sometimes it was a little boring.

    Magnus Chase is an einherjar, which means that he's been killed in battle and is now one of the Norse god Odin's warriors. Not only that, he's the son of the god Frey, the god of fertility and healing. Last time, he retrieved Sumarbrander, the sword of summer, also known as Jack, and barely managed to stop Ragnarok. This time, Magnus must locate another weapon, Mjolner, Thor's extremely powerful hammer. If the giants find out, they will attack Midgard, the world humans inhabit. Magnus will have to find the hammer before they do. Magnus and his friends soon discover that a giant named Thrym has Mjolner. What's more, Thrym is planning on marrying Magnus's friend Samira! If she marries him, Thrym will give the hammer back. At least that's what he says. Loki, the god of trickery and also Samira's father, urges them to collect the bride price, the Skofnung Sword, and the Skofnung Stone. But Magnus suspects that Loki has a plan that he's not telling them. What is it? Will Magnus and his friend ever get Mjolner back? I liked this book because it's really funny.

    Artemis Fowl is a 13-year-old criminal mastermind. He has the highest IQ in Europe, and last year, he discovered that fairies are real! In fact, he even managed to steal their gold! This time though, Artemis receives a troubling video on his computer. The video shows a man tied to a chair. Could he be Artemis's long-lost father? It turns out that the Russian Mafia has kidnaped him and is demanding an enormous ransom for his release. Artemis has enough money for the ransom, but Artemis's bodyguard Butler knows that the Mafia will kill them all, even if they give it. Artemis Fowl knows he will need the fairies' help to rescue his father. But the fairies also need Artemis and Butler's help. A human has been giving lithium batteries to the B'ua Kell Goblin Triad, a major smuggling organization, for them to use to charge their Softnose Lasers. With these weapons, the goblins are becoming extremely dangerous. And worse, the fairies suspect that someone on the inside is helping the B'ua Kell. Who could it be? Will Artemis and the fairies be able to stop the goblins? And can they rescue Artemis's father? I liked this book because it was full of adventure. I recommend this book to people who like fantasy and science fiction.
