What is Prism Reading???
This post has taken a long time to be posted. I haven't posted what I think about books because I don't really like reading book reviews too much. So, I thought I could make them short "blurbs" of books and music.
First off, the Phantom Stallion series by Terri Farley! I've known about this series for a long time, and I'm rereading it again. It's not about a ghost horse (that's what I was afraid of when I was first told about it), but it is about a teenaged girl and her relationship with horses, more specifically a beautiful wild stallion called the Phantom. And I just love the choice of titles!
The Wild One
Red Feather Filly
The Wildest Heart
Run Away Home
WHO I RECOMMEND THIS TO:
Real-life setting fiction lovers- Awesome look into the life of cowboys/cowgirls and ranchers
Horse lovers- Lots of info and terms
Slight romance likers- I don't like romance, but I loved this series. Romance is there, but not a huge thing.
Girls age 8 and up- I've heard of some guys reading it, though. Nothing inappropriate that I could find, just that the reading level is around the age of eight.
I've also JUST finished the Lost Books series by best-selling author Ted Dekker (last two co-authored with Kaci Hill) It's basically about a group of teenagers who are sent on a mission to find seven lost books of history. It's set in a fantasy world, with fuzzy white bats and beings called Leedham. I loved the first two books, but the last four were iffy for me. I am NOT a big fan of romance and, in my opinion, "kissing full on the lips" isn't something I like reading about. In the last two books, however, there is a relationship that I thought was moving. SPOILER: Darsal and Marak I can see why these books are popular, though. Action packed and full of stuff people love in books. There were a lot of story holes, though, but I do understand that there are other series around this one and they are all involved in each other, so I think that clears things up.
WHO THIS BOOK IS FOR:
Teens- Preferably late teens, but it differs on how high you think you can read. Not much on words, but more about content-wise.
Fantasy lovers- Definitely fantasy!
Romance & Adventure lovers- Lotz of romance and battles and such.
Both guys and gals
