For those of you who think that you don’t have to read this book because you saw the movie, tear that idea out of you head and throw it to the wolves. This book is absolutely amazing. When a religious scientist is brutally murdered and branded with the symbol of an ancient demonic cult, Robert Langdon gets called in to identify the group. What he discovers sends shockwaves through the world: the Illuminati, a thought-to-be-dead group of scientists bend on bringing down the Catholic church– specifically Vatican City. Teaming up with the smart, sexy scientist, Vittoria Vetra and the Swiss Guard, they find that at every hour starting at 8:00, a cardinal will be killed. At precisely midnight, a bomb made up of antimatter is set to destroy Vatican City. To make matters worse, conclave is being held, meaning that every Catholic cardinal belonging to the church is sitting on top of a bomb. Chasing after shadows and ancient secrets, together Robert and Vittoria fight for the truth, and make the most startling revelation of all.

Dan Brown is an amazing author with a great gift for making an everything seem real. I highly recommend his books for anyone who wishes to be pulled into a story so captivating that it’s impossible to put down.

The book Princess Lessons is what the Princess Diaries movies is based on.  Mia is basically telling about what it’s like to be a Princess like, what your wardrobe is supposed to be and that it should only take you 15 minutes to do your hair.  I liked this book, first because of its cover and then I was also surprised at how much a princess has to know how to do.
