I am reading Taken by Erin Bowman it has 360 pages and I am on page 101. What are the BEST and WORST things about your book or the BEST and WORST parts of your book so far? The best things in this book so far is that the main character hasn't died yet. He also got over the wall without dying, it says that anyone that tries to get over the wall has been discovered dead. The worst thing in this book so far is that things aren't going as planned and they can't really trust the people that they are with right now.

I am reading Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi. So, far there has been mixed emotions. I feel confused because she is in an asylum and she is not exactly right in the head. She will repeat things three times to prove a point for example, "I claw at the panic, I swallow the agony, I beg myself not to look in his direction but I fail I fail I fail. I am also afraid for her because she was sent there as a child because she was different. She fears for her life constantly because not only of other patients but the people that are involved it is some how. She believes that her new cellmate is going to murder her and was put there for that purpose.

I finished the book Foul Trouble. It had 421 pages. There are so many connections between this book that I have. One is that I am a senior in high school like in that book so are the two narrators. I also used to play basketball and still like the sport. Another connection I had was with one of the characters personality. I could be so defensive and hate it when people look over me.

I am reading the book The Bad Beginning by Lemony Snickett. There are 162 pages in the book and I stopped on page 76 today. The best parts of this book were very rare. The part's when the Baudelaire children could go over to Justice Struass's house and read were good times. There was also the time when they were able to eat fresh raspberries for breakfast, they hadn't gotten decent food the entire time they were living with Count Olaf until that day. The worst parts of the book were always happening. When the three Baudelaire children lost their parents was probably the worst part of the book. Also when Klause got hit across the face for talking back to Count Olaf. Lastly, when Count Olaf hung Sunny out of the window of a 40 foot tower and tried to marry Violet for the Baudelaire fortune.

I just finished reading the book Nobody Walks. I am now reading the book Who Could that Be At This Hour by Lemony Snicket. There are a total of of 258 pages and I am on page 23. This book so far is awfully confusing. It has me very puzzled. The reason I say this is because right away when the book starts we are already in the story not knowing hardly any of the characters or the plot and setting. Another thing that I feel when I read this book is mysterious. Right away after starting the book you question everything you read and what is happening and why the people are doing what they do.

I just finished reading Slob by Ellen Potter; this book has 199 pages. This book is really good and it is so funny because the main character makes a lot of jokes. Not all of the parts in the book is funny, but the book does have its parts. I love the main character because he is really funny and a good person. I like how the author makes out his character and the rests of the characters. The author hides some of her plans in the book, if that makes sense. The readers think one thing until they read a part and then they realize they have been thinking wrong all along. This book is really good and is so unexpected.

I just started the book A Warriors Heart by: Eric Greitens, I am on page 28 and there is 267 pages.
As of right now the book is really good and it has kind of made me laugh. The reason that is has made me laugh is because he has told some jokes. Also he is studying abroad and the book is starting to get sketchy. At the last page I read he was in China and teaching english. They then started asking stuff about our U.S. Government.

I am currently reading the book The Masked Truth by Kelley Armstrong, I started on page 154 and ended on page 232. This book has a total of 340 pages.

There are some ups and downs of this book. Most are bad...I have to admit. But one bad thing is that there are a bunch of kids: Riley, Max, Aaron, Aimee, Lorenzo, Maria, Gideon, Sandy, and Brienne are at a hotel type thing for the weekend because they all have diseases are issues and they all have therapy days in their life. Max has schizophrenia, which is a very, very serious disease that he never tells Riley. He tells her that he has to take meds for a heart disease. This disease, for one thing, is a very bad thing. The worst thing about this book is the fact that all of these kids are kidnapped by a guy named Gray that doesn't want to kill them, but all of them get killed throughout the book besides Riley and Max. Brienne is alive but she's in a coma and in serious condition. Riley is the leader of the group, which is good, and she keeps thing moving forward. She get's shot and is in the hospital, which is bad. These kids hide from Gray and his associate and try to get away from Gray when they get close by punching him and then moving to another location. Now they are in the hospital and the police say that because of Max's condition, they think that he was hallucinating and made Riley believe that there wasn't no kidnapper and that Max did this whole thing. That's the worst part of all because it didn't SEEM like a hallucination and the only killing that Riley didn't see was the death of Aaron and Max did seem confused about that one because he hasn't token his meds yet.
There is a lot of bad things about this book but that's kind of why this is a horror/mystery type book, right?

I am reading The Lost Fleet: Fearless by Jack Cambell. The book has 295 pages and I am on page 97.
One of the best parts of my book was when Geary defeated the Syndic Flotilla at Covus, a Syndic star system. That was a significant battle and it was really great that they won it. Since his Fleet is rather head strong and they didn't know much of anything when it come to tactics, it was a big feat that they won with such awesome power at Corvus. One of the worst parts of my book was when the lost "Basinet" and "Sullet" at Lakota, another Syndic star system. They were two losses that could have been avoidable if their captains had followed their orders and stayed with the fleet. But because of their arrogance and stupidity they murdered their entire crews.

I am reading Tricks by Ellen Hopkins. There are 625 pages and I ended on page 371. The best and worst part of my book is how Ellen Hopkins writes. It's in-verse, so you get a really pretty poetry feel sometimes. But on the down side I feel like I'm missing something sometimes. I want to know more about what the characters are thinking, but maybe that's what she is going for, some mystery. I'm really liking reading in-verse books though. It's a cool form to tell a story in.

I am currently reading the book Game by Barry Lyga. I stopped on page 197 of 517. This book is very weird and kind of creepy, it makes me feel a few emotions in every chapter. It is a mystery book with a creepy but good plot. Some of the parts in this book are disturbing with the blood amount and what all happens to the people. It has some humor and sarcasm in parts of the story. The main character is very impulsive and manipulative, but he grew up that way with his crazy psycho dad. This book has some very creepy and cliché, but there are a lot of other emotions I haven't figured out yet.

I am currently reading Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis The novel starts on page 311 in the chronicles of Narnia and ends on page 419. I stopped on page 375. There are many good and bad parts to this series and book. A few good things are that it is another way to look at a creation story. The chronicles of Narnia is based loosely on the bible itself. However, I myself am not that much of a religious person, I honestly can go without it all together, however it is interesting how C.S. Lewis has portrayed the creation story and the easter story throughout the series. A few bad things about the novel is that C.S. Lewis is very long winded and the print is super small in the book, which isn't really his fault its the editor's fault. Another thing that I am not a fan of is when he puts a story between the "main stories" in the chronicles of Narnia. The books that easily tie into each other are The Magician's Nephew, The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, Prince Caspian, and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, as all of these novels include the same characters. However the other books (The Horse and His Boy, and The Silver Chair) have nothing to do with the main children and are just sort of "Filler" stories.

I am currently reading The Coldest Girl In ColdTown by Holly Black. The book has 419 pages and I stopped on page 144. There are many good things and some bad things about this book. If I were too chose the best thing though, I would say it would be about how the characters have been developed. I have learned many things about each character. I feel like I can connect with the characters closer if I know more about them. The characters are very well explained and I know their backstories and their life. One of the worst things about this book would be the lack of details. The characters are explained in detail, but nothing else in the book really is. I get confused at some parts because i am not exactly sure what is happening.

I finished the book The 100 Day 21 and started the book The 100 Homecoming by Kass Morgan. I am on page 88 of the 340 pages. The best thing about this book is the mystery and romance. Wells and Sasha the Earthborn girl that they captured fell in love. My favorite couple is Bellamy and Clark; Clark risked her life for Bellamy, to save Bellamy's sister Octavia. The mystery to the book is who are they ones who have been murdering some of the members of the 100. Is it the Earthborns or is it someone from the 100? The thing I hate about this book is that it moves really slow and not a ton of exciting things happen.

I am reading Dreadful Sorry by Kathryn Reiss. It has 340 pages in it and today I ended on page 244. There are a ton of parts in the book that I love. There are also some parts in the book that I don't really enjoy. One part of my book that I likes was when Molly felt like she knew Jared, so she called him Hob. I like the parts in the book when they change to Clementines perspective. It makes it easier to understand what's going on. I didn't like the part when Molly was thrown into the pool. When Jared threw her in blood started rushing out of her eyes and ears. That was basically the only part that I didn't like.

Today I finished No Safety In Numbers by Dayna Lorentz. This book had 263 pages and was very interesting. Overall, this book made me worry. This book was very suspenseful and always keep me wondering what would happen next. Some of the situations the characters would get in were very exciting and made me worry about them. overall, this was a good book and would recommend it to someone who liked post apocalyptic novels. I may read the next book in the series after this.
