I am currently reading The Maze Runner by James Dasher. There are 374 pages and I stopped today on page 233. I chose this book because I have previously read this series a couple years ago, and wanted to re-read them. I expect that I will finish this book next class because I plan on reading while watching my sister tomorrow. I do enjoy reading this book because I love reading dystopian books, and The Maze Runner is a dystopian novel. I love reading this book because there is a new challenge, and goal each day to survive. But the book also has a very good science fiction points in the book, making it interesting.
I love the mysterious world with many twists and turns, which makes it very hard to put down.

I am reading Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, it has 391 pages and I am on page 350. I choose this book because I've always wanted to read the Hunger Game series so I picked up this book. I should finish this book by next class, hopefully. I am enjoying this book because it is very interesting and it follows the movie very well. I am very happy reading this book. It does get boring at some points. I hope I can finish it soon.

Im reading Lies by Michael Grant. It has 447 pages and I'm on page 209.I picked this book because it was the next book in the series I'm interested in. Im hoping to finish around 10 books this quarter. This book is a crazy add in to what has happened in the main storyline. There is no trust among the leaders of the town. Old enemies are now appearing and too many new ones for the leaders to handle. Its a great book so far, it keeps digging deeper into the protagonist personality. But the introduction of new characters adds new twists on whats possible in the FAYZ.

I am currently reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett. It has 451 pages and I stopped on page 367. I selected this book because I have seen the movie and wanted to see how close it was to the book. I expect that I will finish this book either Friday in class or this weekend. I am enjoying this book because it has a great plot line. There are also multiple funny parts in the story. I also like this book because it shows the struggles and triumphs of maids during this time. Another thing that I like is how the book is set up. Since the chapters are split up between Minny, Aibileen, and Skeeter I am able to see each story from a different perspective.

I have recently finished reading Racing Savannah, Stealing Parker, Macarons at Midnight, and By Your Side. I am currently reading Things I Can't Forget by Miranda Kenneally. The book has a total of 308 pages and I stopped on page 126.

I picked this book because I have recently been reading Miranda Kenneally's books. This was one of the few book by her that I haven't read.

I expect to finish this book either tomorrow or Friday. It usually takes me about two days to read a good book.

I just started the book I am currently reading today, but so far I really like it. I really like how Kenneally writes all her books, with little twists throughout the book that draw the readers attention back. I also like that the main character of my book is around the same age as me. All of the books by Kenneally, that I have read, aren't predictable. I don't like it when the reader can predict the ending.

#1,#2 - I am reading Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. I got to page 294 of 309.
#3 - I selected this book because I love the Harry Potter series, and I wanted to reread the books.
#4 - I believe that I will finish this book before next class, because I don't have very many pages left to read.
#5,#6,#7,#8 - I am very much enjoying the book I am reading. I see things that I didn't notice the first time I read the series. I like the mysteries that the book has. I love the characters in it. I can't get enough of Harry Potter! This world takes me home(which is said like a Potterhead would say).

I finished How to Meet Boys and am just starting Hope Was Here. I am on page 39 of 186. I picked this book because the cover caught my eye and I thought the synopsis was intriguing. I think that I will finish this book by or on Friday. I am really enjoying the book so far. The novel is set in Mulhoney, where Addie and Hope now live, working at a local diner. I really like how the book started in the midst of everything and how there was no wait for the plot to start or speed up. I also really like the author's writing style and how the small, tedious details are descriptive, but not exhausting or overwhelming because of it.

I am reading Gardenia by Kelsey Sutton. I'm page 53 out of 260 in this book. I chose this book because the summary of it seemed really interesting and I wanted to know how it turned out. Based on last quarter I think I'll finish this book within the first week of April at the latest. Right now I'm not really interested in the book because it's sort of at a boring part. I don't like how they how they have so many characters right off the bat. I don't like how they really don't describe the characters at all. I do like how she tries to save the people when she knows she can't.

yes,i love the book that I'm currently reading. i love reading her books because i love romantic books. once you start reading you cant stop reading them. i like how they get connected to each other and they tell each other that they are good enough but they always fall in love at the end.

The book i am currently reading is If You're Reading This by Trent Reedy. Today I stopped on page 263 of 296 pages. I chose this book becuase to had to deal with a kid playing football and the life of a kid with out a dad. The way I am reading this book i should be done next class. I really like this book becuase its a good read about football. I like that this book has a setting in Iowa which is near here and that the author made it so the main characters dad died in the military but he sent him letters that ask him to complete tasks to make his dad proud.

Complete Sentence #1 & 2: What book are you currently reading, how many pages are in the book, and where did you stop today?
I am currently reading Auschwitz by Sara Nomberg-Przytyk. I am on page 119 out of 180 pages. I selected the book I am currently reading because I've always been fascinated and interested in World War ll and I also enjoy biographies; this novel fell into both categories. I expect I'll finish the book I am reading right now by the end of next class. I'm really enjoying the novel that I am reading. Sara doesn't hold back when speaking of the grotesquely heinous crimes committed at Auschwitz. She sheds light on what life is like in the camp. I really like that at the beginning of the novel she was barely holding on for her life and now she's safely working in the infirmary where she has it far better than most prisoners. Sara will write about a situation that she witnessed and tell us exactly how she felt about it which makes it much more intimate when you read about what she had to endure.

I'm reading The Green Mile by Stephen King. There are 536 pages in the novel and I stopped on page 416 today. I picked this book, because I have heard great things about Stephen King's novels. I think I will finish this book in about a week. I do like this book, because it all connects together. King's writing style is unique and very enjoyable. Another reason why I like this novel, is because it is set during the Great Depression which is a time era I don't know much about. Finally, I like this book, because the formatting of it is different than most books I've read.

I finished reading Pandemonium by Lauren Oliver this class period. There were 375 pages. I chose to read this book because I really enjoyed reading the first book in the series, Delirium. I have just finished this book, so I expect that the next book I read will be finished in maybe about a week and a half. I really liked Pandemonium because it was very exciting. There were so many dangerous situations and cute moments that were so perfect. The only thing I didn't really like was the ending, because everything was going so well. The end just kinda snuck in, and I wasn't happy about it.

I am currently reading the book Revealed by Margaret Peterson Haddix. There are a total of 437 pages and I am on page 188. I have been reading this series for a while now, and it was my mom who told me that I should start reading it. I would guess that this book will be done by the beginning of next week. I am enjoying the book that I am currently reading. This book makes me think about time travel and what happened in the past can change what happens in the future, even before we discover those changes. I have liked all of the books in this series, but this one is probably the most confusing. It is a book about Charles Lindbergh and his missing child, but the child was stolen from his original time and brought to the 21st century. It is confusing how the main character is watching himself as a baby on the monitors.

I am reading Making Waves by Nicole Leigh Shepherd. I'm on page 172 out of 246. I choose this book because it is a part of a series I'm reading. I expect to finish the book I am reading now next class or the class after that. I am enjoying the book because it is about summer. The book has a little drama which is always fun. It has to do with an over protective dad which I can relate to. I do wish the author did other points of view as well though.

I am reading Alexis by Alexis Singer. I stopped at page 89 out of 161 pages, I chose this book because I like books that have to deal with true crime or true stories about peoples lives. I do believe that I will finish this book in the next couple of days, I really like the book I am reading. It is about this girl who gets caught up with a guy on the internet who seduces her over the internet who is a predator. This book is just very interesting to me and I like reading that type of stuff.
