Teen Boy Reads: Guys Read: Thriller


Hey, everyone.

Got another book for you in the series of books designed exactly for teenage guys to read. Well, dive in!

Guys Read: Thriller
Edited by Jon Scieszka
😐 out of 😀 (3/5)

Volume 2 of the Guys Read Library of Great Reading has been described as “chock-full of mystery, intrigue, and nefarious activity.” Also “a pulse-pounding collection of brand-new short stories, each one guaranteed to keep you riveted until the final page.” Who are we to argue? But we will say it’s all that and more.

Guys Read is BACK!! This thrilling collection contains all the Thriller short stories you could ever need! If you did not realize that, reread the title. Edited by Jon Scieszka, we have some of the greatest Thriller novel authors all piled into one!
Well, I can truthfully say that thrillers are not my favorite kind of book. However, this was MUCH better than Revolver, the last book I read. This, being the second of three existing Guys Read books, will be the second in this review trilogy. The next is Guys Read: Sports Pages.
Well, the book was good, but like I said, I don’t really like thrillers. But albeit the fact that it was a whole collection of thrillers, the book WAS good. Not really all that much more that I can say, but I CAN say that I liked the book.

Keep reading, my friends,

Teen Boy Reads: Guys Read: Funny Buisiness


Hi Readers!
This week I have done another great book. The book is actually made for Teen Boys. This is the first of three reviews I will do.
Guys Read: Funny Business
Edited By Jon Scieszka
😉 out of 😀 (4.5/5)

Here it is! Volume 1 of our newest Guys Read undertaking A lot of something funny for everyone. 10 original short stories by Mac Barnett, Eoin Colfer, Christopher Paul Curtis, Kate DiCamillo & Jon Scieszka, Paul Feig, Jack Gantos, Jeff Kinney, David Lubar, Adam Rex, and David Yoo. Wow.

Well, if you need a description, go read the title again. This IS what it sounds like. 10 short stories by some awesome authors, and a whole lot of laughs.
This book was REALLY good, but was not totally funny. I can’t really say much about the book, seeing as the title really says everything. Eoin Colfer’s name is actually pronounced ‘Owen’. Jeff Kinney made ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid’. Hey, I’m grasping at straws here. Just know that some stories are funnier than others.

Well, that brings us to the end of our review. Thanks for stopping by, and goodbye.

See you later,
