I am currently reading Escaping from Houdini by Kerri Maniscalco. I am on page 95.

-In this book many autopsies occurred.
*The antagonist of the story has to perform autopsies to people once they died. All from murders that were gruesome..

-There was a carnival was ongoing through murders were happening..
*The orders have seemed themed off of magic. The main character gives an example how murder is a sleight of hand.

-The way a lady acts defines how one would look at them.
* The main character has to worry about others view her as she is a forensic doctor. She also has a suitor that puts extra pressure with more rules to how she should act.

I am currently reading The Forgetting by Sharon Cameron. I am on page 367 of 403.

The link above takes you to a poem about forgetting and how we as humans try so hard to remember. This book takes place in an isolated city called Canaan. Every twelve years, everyone in Canaan forgets everything. This is called the Forgetting (hence the title of the book). Their minds are completely wiped of their memories, though they retain their skills. The people of Canaan write the events of their daily life in books. (Unfilled books are to remain on or near the person they belong to at all times. Filled books are kept in the Archives.) After the Forgetting, they read their books in an attempt to find out who they were before, so their civilization doesn't have to reset every twelve years. However, reading their books doesn't help them to recollect the events. It just helps them figure out who they were before. No matter how hard they try, they can't remember.

The link above is to an article. The article itself doesn't exactly pertain to the book I'm currently reading, but the picture just under the title of the article does. The main character, Nadia, is an outsider in more ways than one. The city of Canaan is surrounded by a wall. No one knows what is outside the wall, except Nadia. She frequently climbs the wall to escape the confines of the city. Another thing that make her unique is that she has never forgotten. However, Nadia seems to be the only one in Canaan who never forgot. Every day is a struggle to not reveal things she's not supposed to know.

This link takes you to an Amazon page for a silver bracelet with a saying in Morse Code. In this book, Nadia finds a bracelet with an assortment of seemingly random numbers. Although the code in the book isn't in Morse Code, it does unlock a secret facility with technology that everyone has forgotten about. It is with this technology that Nadia discovers how people came to be in Canaan and how the Forgetting can be prevented.

I am currently reading The only thing to Fear by Caroline Tung Richmond. I am on page 150 of 273.

I chose this website because it talks about how Hitler's plans to fix Germany's economy, failed. This website also talks about the horrible things that the Nazi party had done to their own citizens. The book I am reading makes you wonder how bad life would be if Germany won World War II.

This link talks about the many drugs that Hitler had used during WWII to make his "super soldiers". He often used methamphetamine to keep his soldiers alert and tolerable to pain. In the book I am reading, the super soldiers after the war are stronger and faster.

I feel this link is important because it talks about how Hitler came into power in Germany and how he changed the aspect of life for many Germans. It talks about how he took away their books, radios, and anything that wasn't German. He also sent capitalists to concentration camps, along with 6 million+ jewish people or gypsies. It is important to remember how he came into such amount of power. Therefore, later on in the future we can prevent it from happening again with other countries.

I have just finished the book Girls on the Verge a 221 page book.
https://www.dallasnews.com/news/politics/2...erturned-texas-law/ This link explains that if one state illegalizes abortion then it will have the domino effect on the other states. I personally thing that they should not ban it. After all it is the women's rights to have an abortion it is their body. Not everyone knows the story of why they want one.
https://www.plannedparenthood.org/learn/ab...n/the-abortion-pill This article is very important. This is one of the routes that Camille tried. It didn't work for her because she was to far along to take the pill. The pill does have some effects such as cramping, bleeding all to empty your uterus.

https://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/health...procedures-surgical This article relates to this book so much. Camille was a 17 year old girl who got pregnant her first time having sex. She just wanted to get rid of “it” as she called the fetus. She didn’t want to tell her mom so she thought that if she got an abortion it would go away. Abortion only takes the fetus away not the emotions that are running through your head. After she had her abortion procedure done she felt relieved because she wouldn’t have to tell her mom and also sad because she thought about all of those that couldn’t have a baby and felt ashamed and guilty that she had an abortion done.

I am reading Pet Seminary by Stephen King. It has 394 pages and I'm on page 287.

I sent you this link because the book is about dead animals coming back to life, and the link talks about it. In the book, Louis's family cat Church is hit by a truck and covered in blood. He buries Church in the local Pet Sematary and in the next two days, Church is back from the dead. When Church comes back to life, Louis is looking for explanations on how animals come back to life and this link covers it.

This link is a sad one, but pertains to a book in a very strange way. Gage is only two years old when he is hit by an incoming truck. Almost exactly like Church. I haven't seen Gage come back from the dead yet, but his father, Louis, is thinking of re-burying him in the Pet Seminary to see if Gage will come back to life. Just like he wanted Church to come back to life.

Ok so if you haven't picked up on it yet, the family cat Church is dead, but not for long. He is buried in the local Pet Sematary, and comes back to life in the following days and just haunts and scares everyone. I sent you this link because this book is based off haunted and ghost filled Pet Semataries.

the reason i put think is due to the fact that the main part of my book is a military dog left with no master. this website talks about the history of US war dogs and what they have done. war dogs have been extremely helpful in finding bombs over seas
I chose this website because the main character in this book brother died overseas. And this website is all about remembering those who have gave all they could give for their country. The kid in my book name is Justin and his brother was a marine Kyle he worked with K9 unit and had his own dog Max.
the reason for me picking this website is that the father was a marine also and was shot in the back of the leg. the son Justin blameS his dad for his brother going over seas and losing his life. The wounded worrier project helps out people have been hurt in the line of duty like Justins father.

I am currently reading The Count of Monte Cristo. It has 1065 pages and I am at 55.
Monte Cristo Island: https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/montecristo
*This link is about the Island that is talked about in this book. It is where Dantes finds his treasure. It is an actual island in real life.

Napoleon is in exile in the time of this book: https://www.history.com/this-day-in-histor...oleon-dies-in-exile
*This link talks about Napoleon in exile. In this book, Napoleon's followers are arrested for treason if found. Dantes is framed in this book for treason.

France in turmoil after Napoleons reign. What happened after?: https://courses.lumenlearning.com/boundles.../france-after-1815/
*Napoleon caused such a mess of France. This link talks about how they pick themselves up after his reign is over.

I am currently reading Champion by Marie Lu. I am on page 133 of 369

* This link talks about how Trump had to hold an emergency rally as his support in Texas goes away because of his impeachment. This is related to my book because the Republic, which is the main government, is currently being run by a teenage boy. He got the position because his dad died, and now everyone wants him either out of office or killed.

* This link is a wikihow about the proper way to pet a dog. This is relevant to my book because one of the main characters has a dog, which her brother gave to her as a present. You might be thinking, "how can this be important in the story?" It's important because her brother is now dead and the dog is all she has to remember him by.

* This is a link for paperclips. This is significant in my book because the main characters in my book fall in love amidst the chaos of the government. And the first present that the guy gives to the girl is a bracelet made out of paperclips that he bent together. The bracelet was his act of love to her and it made her feel special.

Start with a sentence that names current book, total # of pages, and page # where you stopped.

In this post, you are going to provide me with THREE (3) LINKS to things you find online related to your book. Copy the link, then in THREE (3) sentences for each link explain why you had me look at that link. The links should NOT mention the title of your book or have anything to do with the book itself, so don’t Google the book title. Do NOT just send me links to 

3 pictures! For 

example, you might send me a link to:

A. Song lyrics of a song that reminds you of this book.
B. A Letter to the Editor that touches on the same subject(s) your book discusses
C. A poem that addresses a theme from your book
D. A Greeting Card (there are millions online) that would be appropriate to send to one of the characters in the book you are currently reading
E. A “How To” Link—for example, I am reading Plainswoman, a story set on the Plains in the 1880s. The woman has to milk her own cows. I would include a link like this: http://www.wikihow.com/Milk-a-Cow

F. A Map that has significance to your book
G. A retail website with a link to specific item(s) that has significance in your book
H. An advertisement for a product that has significance in your book
I. A collage you found online that addresses key IDEAS from your book (but if you are reading Harry Potter, for example, don’t go find a collage of Harry Potter characters)
