This book is about two young people with different types of cancer. They are called Hazel Grace Lancaster and Augustus Waters. They meet at a cancer support group and become close and fall in love. They decide to go to Amsterdam to meet their favourite author.
It is a sad story but enjoyable. I recommend it to John Green fans.

This is a war between sanctuaries - a war of loyalty and betrayal and last, desperate stands. The Irish Sanctuary has teetered on the brink of world-ending disaster, and the other Sanctuaries around the world have had enough. Skulduggery and Valkyrie must team up with the rest of the Dead Men if they are to maintain the balance of power.
While one war is beginning another is raging within Valkyrie's soul. If she loses, Darquese will rise and the world will burn!

The 'Skulduggery Pleasant' books are definitely the best books I have ever read.

The Carriers by Jonathan Harlen

This is the story of a little girl and her friend Will. They go into a pet shop and find that some of the animals are dead. The next thing a man suddenly jumps out of nowhere and bites Will. This was a really scary part but it is also the reason why I liked this book. Nobody believes Will when he says that he was bitten because the bitemarks mysteriously disappear.

I would recommend this book to people who like stories that would make their hair curl.

'After Dark' titles are frightening stories and strictly for reading after dark.
