The book I'm reading right now is Falling kingdoms and I'm on page 160. In the pages I just read, the princess Cleo is betrothed to the boy that killed a wine sellers son. She doesn't want to marry him because she thinks he is rude and careless, and she is disgusted by him. No matter what she tries to do, it seems like she has to marry him. She even threatened to kill herself, but her father, the king, didn't believe her. In the northern kingdom, they made an alliance with the central kingdom; this is where the wine seller was from. They declared war on the southern kingdom, and soon they will begin fighting.

The book I am currently reading is Life of Pi. It is a fictional action book. My favorite book from this quarter was Go Set a Watchman because it had a great theme and the use of language was really beautiful. I will continue to read Life of Pi, and complete reading The Sword of Adam, The Vow, and will begin reading other books as well. I hope to read six books this quarter because I read five last quarter.

I am currently reading Pysik and I am on page 233. This is a fantasy/adventure book. I can't say I have a favorite book but I have a favorite series, the Van Helsing series. I love it because it's all about vampires, action, the main character slowly learning about himself and becoming a hero. I want to keep reading Angie Sage's work. I'd also like to read more of the graphic novel Naruto and then Naruto Shippuden. I know I've read at least 24 books. I guess I should try to read as many.

The Book that I'm Currently reading is Genocide of one By Kabuki Takano . I would classify this book as a fiction of future development of a human kind where man where one day create a drug to make mankind more smarter or a newborn with more intelligence then regular people. Humans that evolve from present day man will have an enlarge cerebral neocortex and intelligence that vastly surpasses ours they will have the ability to perceive a fourth dimension, to immediately grasp complex wholes . they will have a sixth sense, an inflintely developed moral consciousness mental qualities that are incomprehensible to us.

In the second quarter, I plan to finish reading the 100 series and the missing series by Margaret Peterson Haddix. Afer that I would like to read the Messengers by Edward Hogan. I read 8 books first quarter and I pan to read atleast 8 more second quarter.

I am currently reading Let It Snow and I stopped on page 241.

1. I am currently reading Let It Snow. The genre of this book is young adult fictional romance.
2. My favorite book has to be the one I am currently reading. Because it is Christmas and Holiday themed and I love Christmas time. And because all 3 stories that are in this book all end so well.
3. I would like to read Stork, finish reading Frost, and then read the 3rd book in that series. The author is Wendy Delsol, and maybe I will look into some of her other books when I am finished with that series.
4. I read 8 books the first quarter. I would really like to read 9 or 10 books for the second quarter.

The book I’m currently reading is The Name of The Star by Maureen Johnson. I would classify it as a mystery and kind of supernatural. My Favorite book from the First quarter would have to be The Naturals By Jennifer Lynn Barnes. This book was my favorite because it had so many surprises and one of the best endings i’ve ever read for a book. I don’t really know what books I will read next quarter, I kind of go into the library and wing it. For authors though I think I may want to read more ellen hopkins, I read some of her books last year and last year and I love her style. I finished seven books in the first quarter and started another. For the second quarter i’m going to aim for seven or eight books.

The book I am reading right now is called Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and I'm on page 74

The book that I am currently reading is called Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. The Genre of this book is Fiction because of course there isn't magic and wizards in the real world so that is made up. My favorite book from the first quarter would have to be Unbroken because it is interesting to know what happened in history and have a full account of what did happen. And learn what the Japanese did to the men and starved them and how the men would find ways to get information and steal things that the Japanese had. A definite book for second quarter that I plan on reading is the third book of the divergent series which I'm reading the second one right now and am almost finished with it. Also, I may consider reading more of the Harry Potter series and possibly a book or two of Mike Lupica's. Last quarter the total of books that I read was six in all. So for this quarter I'm aiming for at least 6 but the maximum I would get would probably be 8.

I am currently reading Paper Towns by John Green. The book is a mystery. My favorite book from this quarter is Paper Towns. I like the mystery and it is pretty fast-paced, which I like. Next quarter, I think I will read some other John Green books: Looking for Alaska and An Abundance of Katherines. I would also like to start a series like Harry Potter. This quarter I read five books. For next quarter, I would like to read six or seven books.

The book I am currently reading is Stargirl. It is realistic fiction and I stopped on page 132. My favorite book from first quarter was If I Stay. It was easy to follow and it was intriguing because I wanted to know what would happen next. I don’t really have a specific author or book in mind for next quarter. I am hoping to read the second book to If I Stay, though. I finished five books this quarter and started another. I think that I can read six or seven books during second quarter if I find books that really interest me.
