Bloodlines by Richelle Mead is a paranormal, young adult, Vampire Academy spin-off series. Jill Dragomir is in danger, threatening Lissa’s place as queen. When Jill is sent into hiding, Sydney is assigned to be her protector. Her childhood was defined by the condemnation of Moroi, but now she must live among them. Although I didn’t care for Sydney in the Vampire Academy books, I was hooked on her character by the end of this novel.

Fire and Heist is a novel about sixteen-year-old Sky Hawkins, who is a wyvern: a human that has the ability to transform into a dragon. Unfortunately, most wyverns nowadays have lost that ability. What they haven’t lost, however, is their culture of stealing—in wyvern society, leading your first heist is the most important milestone of your life, and it determines everything about where you belong in the wyvern social order.

Teen Review Oct 21, 2021

This is my favorite Spider-Man movie. After Avengers Endgame, Peter Parker has no mentor. In this new Spiderman movie Peter Parker is trying to overcome his sadness for losing Iron Man. He meets a new “superhero” named Mysterio who resembles a mentor quality of Tony Stark. Spiderman puts his trust in Mysterio only to be betrayed later. I had a spectacular time watching Spider-Man Far From Home because it was funny and entertaining.

Teen Review Oct 21, 2021

The fifth season of LEGO Ninjago Masters of Spinjitzu was spooky/amazing. This season introduced a new threat that appeared at the end of season four. As I learned what this ghost wants throughout the season, I also learned newer information about Sensei Wu’s past. Now the ninja do not have their powers because a ghost named Morro possessed Lloyd. Moro is after the realm crystal that is in the first Spinjitzu Masters resting place with a location of unknown origin.
