Title: Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe
Author: Benjamin Allier Saenz
Quote: "Another secret of the universe: Sometimes pain was like a storm that came out of nowhere. The clearest summer could end in a downpour. Could end in lightning and thunder."
Synopsis: Aristotle is an angry teen with a brother in prison. Dante is a know-it-all who has an unusual way of looking at the world. When the two meet at the swimming pool, they seem to have nothing in common. But as the loners start spending time together, they discover that they share a special friendship—the kind that changes lives and lasts a lifetime. And it is through this friendship that Ari and Dante will learn the most important truths about themselves and the kind of people they want to be.
Thoughts: This book was great. It was a quick read and it was really interesting. I kind of wish that the book ended differently but at the same time I’m kind of glad with the way it ended. Ari and Dante’s friendship was honestly goals. The loyalty was real and I loved it. They also had really cool parents. In all honesty I wasn’t all that crazy about this book but it was a really cute and light read. Perfect for this thanksgiving break.

Title: Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban
Author: J.K. Rowling
Quote: “Mischief managed.”
Synopsis: Harry Potter is lucky to reach the age of thirteen, since he has already survived the murderous attacks of the feared Dark Lord on more than one occasion. But his hopes for a quiet term concentrating on Quidditch are dashed when a maniacal mass-murderer escapes from Azkaban, pursued by the soul-sucking Dementors who guard the prison. It's assumed that Hogwarts is the safest place for Harry to be. But is it a coincidence that he can feel eyes watching him in the dark, and should he be taking Professor Trelawney's ghoulish predictions seriously?
Thoughts: I thought this book was great! It wasn’t as good as the second book in my opinion but it was still good. I just loved everything. And I like where the story went with Sirius black. I didn’t expect Remus to be a werewolf and after reading the book I finally understood the cover. Anyways over all I really like the book and as I take my journey farther and farther into the wizard world I realize that the drarry tension is real. I can’t wait to start the next book. It will probably take me much longer to read because that book is a monster but I’m looking forward to it and I hope it’s just as good or even better than this one.
