Magnus Chase and the Ship of the Dead is a thrilling and funny fiction novel by Rick Riordan. This book is about a guy named Magnus Chase.  He and his friends travel across the nine worlds in search of a way for them to defeat Loki and return him to his chains and delay Ragnarok at the same time. I love the way the author makes the most serious moments really funny and exciting. The sarcasm in this book is so funny and original, I couldn’t stop laughing!

Finding Dory was amazing to watch and look at. The animation was spectacular, the storyline was tremendous, and the parts where Dory forgot what she was saying and started all over again were funny. In this new and improved version of the original Finding Nemo, Dory is searching for her parents and gets lost throughout her journey. Dory is a fish who has short-term memory loss which makes her journey even harder.
