I am currently not reading a book because I have just finished my book called Fallen Angels.
I finished one book this quarter. The book I read this quarter was fallen angels. I read nine books this this whole semester.
All of the books I read were of the fiction genre, except one.
The most favorite book I read the semester was Fallen Angels because I could not put the book down.
My least favorite book was now because I found it hard to focus on it.
I learned that if I give myself time to read I actually enjoy it.

1. I read 6 books this quarter. I read the books Tarzan of the Apes, Eon, The Lost Fleet: Dauntless, The Lost Fleet: Fearless, The Lost Fleet: Relentless, and Eona. I have read a total of 16 books this semester.
2. Fantasy and Science Fiction and Just Regular Fiction.

3. My most favorite book of the Semester was John Carter of Mars.

4. I don’t dislike any of these books, but I do dislike Jordan Goldammer for distracting me in this last journal.

5. I learned that I really do like to read. I learned that Jordan is too much for this world and the best sort of dude to read next to. I learned that old english is fun to read. I also learned that I don’t mind reading a whole series.

On Wednesday I just started a new book, Between Shades Of Grey by Ruta Sepetys. This book has 338 pages and I stopped on page 45.
The number of books I read this quarter was 6, Star Girl, Love, Pretty Tough, Playing with the Boys, Speak and T4. This semester I read 10 books. They were all very good and many different genres.
A lot of my books were sports books. The second genre was romance and humor. The third genre was my last book, it was a novel inverse.
My favorite book this semester Pretty Tough.
My least favorite book was Speak.
I learned that I can read more books if I concentrate. I really enjoy books about sports or romance. I read a lot of books by Sarah Dessen, she writes about the same setting but different people.

I am reading Sabotaged by Margaret Peterson Haddix. It has 377 pages in it.
1. I finished six books this quarter. I read 11 Birthdays, Throw Like a Girl, Dreadful Sorry, Found, Sent, and The Last Train. I read 11 books this semester
2. I mainly read fiction books this semester.
3. My favorite book this semester was The Gathering.
4. My least favorite book this semester would be Sound Bender.
5. I learned that to be a great reader I have to give myself the time to read a book. When I gave myself the time to read I actually started wanting to read more and more then I did before. I can't wait to continue reading and to love it more and more.

I just finished reading Another Day by David Levithan, it has 327 pages in it and I started reading on page 240.
1. Oh my gosh I read SO MANY BOOKS this quarter. I've read 14 books: 172 Hours On The Moon, Beauty Queen, The Five Stages Of Andrew Brawley, She's So Dead To Us, More Than This, The Deathday Letter, I Only Said I Wasn't Hungry, The Masked Truth, We Are The Ants, The Girl Who Never Was, The hunt, This Is So Not Happening, Where You'll Find Me, and Another Day. The total books for this semester was....24. I got confused.
2. I Feel like I've only read Fiction and Youth Fiction. Some of them were Sci-Fi. I guess I really like just a random mix of books, I really just read the back of the book and if it sounds good I read it.
3. You can't ask me my favorite book...you just can't. I can't answer this! I've read SO MANY good books. I guess I have to find one...hmm....I loved 172 hours on the moon by Johan Harstad, The Five Stages of Andrew Brawley by Shaun David Hutchinson, We are the ants by Shaun David Hutchinson, She is SO series by Kieran Scott, Another Day by David Leviathan, and Where You'll Find me by Natasha Frien. I would say Where You'll Find me is my top favorite since I read it in a day during the school day because I got TOTALLY hooked onto it.
4. Least favorite, sadly enough I have one of those. I know, it's surprising. Beauty Queen by Libba Bray and The Masked Truth by Kelly Armstrong. I guess since they weren't a 5 star rating. I would say Beauty Queen was my least favorite. I didn't like how it changed people every chapter. Like there was like twenty girls in the story and every girl was in each chapter from their perspective and then they finished their parent in the island they were washed upon and they were supposed to die. I don't know, I didn't really like it but enjoyed it enough to keep reading on.
5. I learn a lot about me as a reader. I've learned that I have to like what the books about. I've also learned that when I start reading I don't get totally hooked because my eyes get tired. In class for example, my eyes get tired from the quietness so I don't get totally hooked until I'm outside of class but then when I get hooked into the book, reading in class is like NO issue because I cannot pull away from reading. I know I enjoy reading, I haven't been reading a lot before this class but now I think that might change. I guess I like the one class where I get to read and get into a different world that's not mine. Reading gives me something to do. Hopefully next school year I continue to read when I can. I actually really like this class unlike some people who sleep or text. I figured out I really like Kieran Scott because she relates her books to teenage life and her characters go through a lot of drama and middle school to high school transition life. I like Shaun David Hutchinson because I loved The Five Stages book so much I wanted to see if he had more books and then I loved reading them. I'm going to Japan this summer (leaving July 13th) and I know that I'm going to find these books again and read them again on the plane ride.

I just finished Shatter me by Tahereh Mafi there were 338 pages.
1. I read five books this semester, Catching Jordan, Searching for Sky, The Chance You Won't Return, If I could Fly, and Shatter me. This semester I read a total of 11 books.
2. I didn't really seem to fall away from nonfiction books with romance and adventure.
3. My favorite book this semester was Shatter me by Tahereh Mafi.
4. My least favorite book this semester would be Searching for Sky. It had no real storyline and was not enjoyable at all.
5. I learned that I can enjoy reading but only with certain books. I like dystopian themed books. When Im given the time to read in a quite place where I am not distracted its easier to enjoy a book.

I just finished reading The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die by April Henry; there is 224 pages in the novel.
     
1) I have read fourteen books this quarter including Go Set a Watchman, Reality Boy, Edith's Story, Panic, Compound, The Cure for Dreaming, Shut Up, Slob, Hippie Boy, Forget Me, And We Stay, The Masked Truth, Winter Girls, and The Girl Who Was Supposed to Die. I read five books last quarter making the total nineteen books.

2) Most of the genre I read was horror and suspense, however I did read a few realistic fiction books.

3) My favorite book that I have read is The Masked Truth by Kelley Armstrong. I like how detailed the author was and her choice of words.

4) My least favorite book is Go Set A Watchman by Harper Lee. I don't like how the author wrote it because it is extremely different compared to her other book.

5) I found out that I read more when I find a book I really like. I learned that it is easier to read a book when you can relate to it or you can compare it to something you know. I also learned that it is okay to choose different books that you don't usually read because they are just as good as the ones you usually read.

I am currently reading The Amazing Book Is Not On Fire by Dan and Phil. The book has 224 pages and I am on page 80.

1)This quarter I read 7 books. I read An Ember In The Ashes, Infinity, The Fate Of Ten, The Coldest Girl In Coldtown, The Singer Of All Songs, and The Waterless Sea. This semester I read 12 books.

2)Some of the genres I read was fantasy, non fiction, action, fiction, and dystopian.

3)My favorite book of the semester would be The Amazing Book Is Not On Fire by Dan and Phil.

4)My least favorite book of the semester would be Four by Veronica Roth.

5)One thing I learned about myself as a reader would be that I enjoy a lot of action and fantasy books. Im not much of a nonfiction type of person unless its a story by my favorite youtubers. I enjoy books with a lot of action and like dystopian societies.

Today I finished reading The Last Battle which concluded The Chronicles of Narnia, I started on page 760 and ended on page 767. I finished 11 books this quarter, Game, Blood of My Blood, The Book Thief, Laughing at My Nightmare, The Magicians Nephew, The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe, The Horse and His Boy, Prince Caspian, Voyage of the Dawn Treader, The Silver Chair, The Last Battle, and Bleed Like Me. I read a total of 16 books this semester. The different genres I read include fantasy, romance, Autobiographies, Historic fiction, Mystery thriller, and memoirs. My most favorite book was the I Hunt Killers series, it was the first series I really got into since The Mortal Instruments. My least favorite book was Bleed Like Me, because it was extremely poorly written. This semester I learned that I am an extremely fast reader, the first few books I read I finished in one or two class periods. What I learned from reading books from the same author is that you may get sick and tired of their writing style, such as I did of C.S. Lewis’s writing style. I also learned that I really enjoy mystery thrillers, and fantasy style novels.

I am reading Everest By Gordan Korman. It has 133 pages and I am on page 67.

1. I finished reading 6 books this quarter. They were The Zodiac Legacy, Quantum Prophecy, Icefall, We Die Alone, Force Out, and Boot Camp. I read 12 books in the total semester.

2. The Genres I read were Science Fiction, Historical Fiction, Sports Fiction, and Realistic Fiction.

3. My favorite book of the semester was World War 2 The Right Fight.

4. My least favorite was Killing Patton.

5. What I learned about myself as a reader was that I really like fiction and war books. I really didn't have a favorite author just as long as they wrote a good story. I enjoyed a lot of history books this semester to. It really didn't change how much I liked reading just what I would enjoy if I do pick up a book sometime.

I just started reading Welcome to the Dark House by Laurie Faria Stolarz. This book has 357 pages and I am currently on page 91.

1. I read a total of seven books this quarter. Starting with The Enemy by Charlie Higson, then The Dead also by him, The Fear by Charlie, after that I took a small break from the series and read I am Number Four by Pittacus Lore, after that I read the Sacrifice by Charlie, The Fallen and then finally Original Fake by Kristin Cronnmills. Last quarter I read 8 books. So this semester, I read a total of 15 books. Including the one I am reading it would be 16.

2. I didn't read a huge variety of genres. I read mostly horror and fiction.
 
3. My most favorite book had to have been The Sacrifice by Charlie Higson. This book was the 4th in the Enemy Series.

4. My least favorite book had to have been A Midsummers Nights Scream by R.L. Stine. Don't get me wrong, I love his works, but this book was a little too fast paced for me.

5. I didn't find out any new information about myself as a reader, but I found out that I prefer to read horror books. Horror books make me want to keep reading, since they are thrilling and exhilarating. I do occasionally read non-horror books. Like Original Fake, that book was comedy based, and I really enjoyed it. I also learned that I can read through books very quickly.

Last class I just finished the book The Last Train by Rona Arato, and I have not started a new book since then.
1. This quarter I finished 8 books total. I finished, Mistaken Identity, Plum Lovin’, The Unwritten Rule, Was God on Vacation?, Stuck Neutral, T4, Girl, Stolen and The Last Train. This semester I finished a total of 12 books.
2. The genres of my books consisted of: realistic fiction, romance, true stories, mysteries, nonfiction, autobiographies, and fiction.
3. My most favorite book from this semester was Mistaken Identity by Don & Susie Van Ryn and Newell, Colleen & Whitney Cerak, I never would have thought something that crazy could actually happen.
4. My least favorite book from this semester would have to be Plum Lovin’ by Janet Evanovich, I decided that I don’t really like mysteries that much.
5. As a reader I learned that usually I don’t really like to try new things and that I actually really enjoy reading if I find the right book. I found out that I usually just stay along the lines of realistic fiction, romance, but what can I say? I’m a girl. I also learned that I was very interested in reading peoples stories of the Holocaust. But the most important thing I learned is that it really is nice to just be able to be in a quiet room so I can concentrate and just be able to read.

 I have currently finished the book Desert Angel by Charlie Price, the book had 233 pages.
1. I have finished a total of 5 books this quarter and 8 books this semester. The books I finished this semester include: The Desert Angel, No Dawn Without Darkness, The Darkest Path, No Safety In Numbers, and Taken.

2.All of the books I read were fiction, They all fit into the genres of action, adventure or science fiction.

3. I liked all the books I read this quarter but my favorite was No Dawn Without Darkness. This book was vey suspenseful and was always interesting, It also had a good ending.

4. My least favorite book this quarter was taken, It was an interesting book, but it was very confusing and was hard to understand.

5. I found that reading can be interesting if I have a good book to read. Reading is not necessarily something I enjoy but it is a good thing to pass time. I did not really enjoy a specicic author but I did find that my favorite books were action, adventure or Science Fiction novels. I also found that many authors are very different, some are very fluent and have good ideas and some just make their books confusing. I now know some more good authors I can read books from in the future.

I just finished reading the book Fallen Angels by Walter Dean Meyers. It had a total of 309 pages.


1. I finished reading 5 books this quarter. Some of these books included Eyes on Target, Unthinkable, Nobody Walks, Lemony Snicket, and Fallen Angels. I finished a total of 9 books this last semester.

2. I didn't read many different types of genres I mostly read war, history, and crime related books.

3. I would have to say that my favorite book from this semester would either be Fallen Angels or Outlaw Platoon.

4. I think my least favorite book was Lemony Snicket, the reason for this is because it was very bland and never really got to the point.

5. I think one of the things I learned about myself as a reader is that I should work on reading more often because I wasn't able to finish the amount of books that were recommended. On the other hand when I was given the time to read and I was able to find books that I enjoyed reading was very fun and I enjoyed it. If I had to choose a particular type of book to read I would have to say they would fall in the category of history and war. I find these books very easy to read because they are something that interest me.

I just finished reading the book "The Devil At My Heels." It had 267 pages and it was probably one of the best books that I have ever read.

This semester I read a total of 10 books. I found it easier to read the required amount of books to read because of the fact I didn't meet the required number last quarter. Majority of the books that I read this quarter were non-fiction war books. I found those to be the most interesting of those I have read. My favorite book this semester was The Making of A Navy SEAL. The book was so well constructed and written, I could read it 100 times over and still love it. I will have to say that my least favorite book had to have been Code Name: Johnny Walker. It was slow moving and never really got anywhere until the very end. One thing that I learned from this semester is that, if I take the time to actually sit down and read the book I have chosen. Reading can actually be really interesting. Also, there will never be any genre of books better than a war memoir, and a war autobiography.

I am reading Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge. There are 342 pages and I ended on page 74. I have read 18 books this quarter and and 28 books this semester. I like to read, so this wasn't too hard. I read some contemporary, in-verse, science fiction, fantasy, and historical fiction. I like to mix up what genre I read. My favorite books this semester are the Shatter Me series, Everything Everything, The Weight of Feathers, The Nightingale, and I'll Meet You There. I really couldn't choose. I love these books because of the characters. All of them were relatable. My least favorite book I read was My Heart and Other Black Holes. It was kind of slow and just had a really hard time finishing it. The thing I learned about myself as a reader this year was that I like to read a different book between books in series. I like the break from the same story. I also learned that I love when a writer has a bit of a poetic flow to their writing. I think it makes the story more interesting.
