Staff Picks Spotlight - James M.

James


Eragon by Christopher Paolini

A great fantasy book for all ages. The story is written well and shares the life of a young farm boy who is cast into a world of magic and dragons without much say in it. Losing his family and loved ones while fighting off evil forces with his blade. The choices the main character has to make also makes the reader question what would be the best option, and how it’ll affect the story.



My Hero Academia by Kohei Horikoshi 

A heart warming yet intense story of superheros and a sense of rags to riches is within this Japanese comic. The story of a young boy born without powers in a world where everyone is super, makes him lesser for being different. The story  is based off of him wishing to be a great hero. Eventually gaining the abilities to achieve his dream he embarks on a journey of entering a super school to learn how to become the best hero he can be.



Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli 

The story is about a young man dealing with his sexuality and the issues of hiding it from the world. A good story for those of the LGBT community, that faces real life struggles people go through. there are breaks in between the story  where it involves the main character and his email exchange with his penpal discussing topics and romance. It’s an interesting format of writing and engaging the reader throughout the story.
