Rainer Maria Rilke

"Live a while in these books, learn from them what seems to you worth learning, but above all love them. This love will be repaid you a thousand and a thousand times, and however your life may turn,-it will, I am certain of it, run through the fabric of your growth as one of the most important threads among all the threads of your experiences, disappointments, and joys."--Rainer Maia Rilke

Alien Conspiracy!

I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore
(Young Adults only)

If you like alien take-overs, violent fight scenes and conspiracy theories, this is the series for you!
I saw the movie first and loved it!  Again, my favorite type of genre is sci-fi, so if that isn't you, stop reading here.  Plus, if you love engaging dialogue and a heavy plot, don't bother!  If you just want some alien kick-butt fun, this is the right place to keep reading.

The main character, John Smith, is one of only 9 left from his home planet and is hiding on Earth from an invading alien species.  He is the fourth one alive and is next on the alien's hit list.  Throw is some graphic fight scenes and young love and that pretty much sums it up.

This book is tight with action, emotion and promises to be a great, easy summer series. I will certainly follow the series and have already read the first few chapters of the next which is told in another character's point of view.

  1. Just finished the book and enjoyed it. I can't wait to watch the movie and have already pre-ordered two other books connected to this series.
