My book is Wake by Amanda Hocking, it has 289 pages and I am on page 15. If my character would receive a white T-shirt. She would make it very creative. She would also make it colorful. She would probably put stars and the oceans waves on the shirt too. Because she like to go to the ocean at night and swim where you could cut yourself very easily if you aren't careful. She would maybe put a couple of fish on the shirt too.

My book is The Midnight Spy by Kiki Hamilton, it has 404 pages, I started on page one and ended on page 103. If my character, Nica, was giving a white T-shirt, she would definitely would draw something about her really really wanting to leave! She lives in a castle and she is the daughter of King Mosaba. King Mosaba is very strict and he recently went on a journey to capture Jaaniyah who is another daughter of another king. So Nica really wants to leave this place. Nice would also draw a horse, because that's what she is using to leave her palace with Toppen to get to freedom. I know that she'll also put down Shanks, because he is a person who is a knight, but also has some relationship with her. First Nica doesn't trust him and she thinks that he's totally following her around, but then when she's trying to escape, he just shows up and puts some guy that they don't know in with her and has them ride across the silver to talk to Sebande. She'd probably draw him then put a question mark because Shanks is a very weird person. A message that she'd put on the back of the T-shirt would be "Freedom!" just because she's been planning to leave this place and now she has her opportunity to finally leave.

I am currently reading The Only Thing To Fear, by Caroline Tung Richmond. I stopped on page 158 of the 280 pages. This book is very Interesting in the way love plays into the novel. The main character, Zara, has a love for some specific things in the novel. First, She loves her uncle and will help him with about anything. Her uncle is the only family she has left and he cares for her and would do anything for her. Zara also has a love for the alliance, though she can't join the alliance due to her age, she still helps it out any way she can. Another prominent example of love in this book is the relation ship she has between her and her friend Bastain. Bastain is a German and his dad a cornel in the Nazi army, she is also not supposed to be seen with him and if she does she will probably be killed. The relationship these to have is not a dating kind of thing but it could possibly turn into something like that in the future. Overall I like this book so far and will continue reading it.

I am reading Looking for Alaska. There are 221 pages and I am on page 158. Love plays a big role in my book. Miles fell in love with a girl named Alaska but he also makes really great friends. Miles grew up like a nerd but, once he made it to college he met so many fun and interesting people. The one person who was always on his mind was Alaska she had a boyfriend but he loved her anyways. They grew closer and closer, he stayed with her over Christmas break. I'm not quite sure if Alaska felt the same way about him. Although, before Alaska passes away he told her that he loved her. Not only did he have Alaska he had great friends to stand by his side. This book is pretty much about love.

I am reading Unravel Me, by Tahereh Mafi it has 461 pages and today I stopped on page 61. I finished two books, T4, and The Gathering. Love does play a very important role in my book. The main character Juliette is in love with Adam. Her love for him gets her into a lot of trouble with important people. Their love for each other limits them to more important things that they could do. They could have the chance to take down The Reestablishment if they don't let their love for one another get in the way. It's hard for the people leaving with them to understand their love and the things they go through for love. They both have a big chance to take down the people who hurt them, but if they can't let go and except the fact that they might not be together they won't get that chance. I think that need to love each other but also think about all the other people that The Reestablishment has effected.

I am reading Delirium by Lauren Oliver. It has 441 pages and I started on page 11 and ended on page 79. In this book, love is actually seen as a disease. After you turn 18, you have a procedure that cures you from love. Everyone who is 17 and younger is uncured of love. They say love causes anxiety, stress, heart disease, and bipolar disorder. Love is deadly and if you show any signs of love, you are experimented on and eventually killed. The main character in this book is Lena, who is about to get the procedure to cure herself from love. This is something that is very important to her because her mother committed suicide because the procedure didn't work on her. They are also take a test to get matched with another partner that you will be married to. This happens right after you graduate from high school.

I just finished the book Between Here and Forever by Elizabeth Scott, and started reading Burned by Ellen Hopkins. Today I stopped on page 266. In the book Between Here and Forever there was a lot of instances of love. Such as Abby's love for Tess to wake up, Tess's love for both Beth and Claire and then Abby and Eli's love. But in my new book there hasn't been very much love throughout the family, the only love her dad has is for alcohol. The main character, Pattyn does think that she falls in love with this guy named Derek and she thinks he loves her too, but that's a lie. Where I stopped today I think there was a start of a romance between Pattyn and this new guy from her Aunt's town named Ethan. They way they get to know each other is that he lives right down the road from her aunt which she is staying with for the summer because her parents decided to send her away. The only family member that Pattyn can acutally relate to and trust is her sister Jamie they are the only two in the family who have a strong relationship. But other than that they aren't a very close and loving family. I can't wait to keep reading the book and see Pattyn and Ethan's relationship evolve.

I am currently reading the book Insomnia by J.R. Johansson, this book has 350 pages and today I stopped on 137. Now, the character in this book, Parker, has an issue. As stated in the title, you would assume he has insomnia, correct? Well, he actually considers himself a "watcher" he watches other people's dreams. It wouldn't be a random person's dream either, it has to be the last one he made eye contact with. However, when he is watching their dreams, it's almost as if he is awake, so he doesn't get any sleep. I believe he would make an invention to prevent him from seeing other people's dreams, and perhaps help him sleep better. Maybe he would create a device so he can have his own dreams, and they could allow him to sleep. Parker has met this girl named Mia, and when he first watched her dream, he was able to actually sleep. So, if he were able to recreate that, then he wouldn't have to be a stalker type of person.

I finished the Warlord of Mars so I started reading this book called Uglies by Scott Westfeld. I am on Page 231. Love plays a pretty substantial role in this Book. Tally falls in love with this dude named David from the Smoke, but he's an Ugly and all she wants is to be a Pretty. David is a part of group that doesn't want to be Pretties. Tally has to infiltrate the Smoke to become a Pretty so when she falls for him she no longer wants to fulfill her mission. If she didn't love David she probably would have just gave up the location of the Smoke and went on with life. Tally also has a friend named Shay who loves the Smoke and everything thy stand for. Tally really wants to be Pretty, but she loves Shay like a sister and doesn't want to betray her. Tally has love telling her not to betray the Smoke, but being a Pretty has a large pull.

Last class period i finished Hello Life by Marcus Butler, today i started reading I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga. The book has 359 Pages and today i stopped on page 87. In this book the main character Jasper (Jazz) is the son of the most infamous serial killer in the United States. What he loves more than anything is trying to not become his father. He also loves to obsess about dead bodies that turn up in town. He also has a girl friend named Connie, however my opinion of Jazz (so far) is that he doesn't really love her, he is just using her has a way to anchor himself. Throughout the novel he keeps telling him self people are real, this is making me believe that he is a sociopath (someone who doesn't feel). He loves to get his way, he often knows all sorts of tips and tricks about how to break into buildings (In one of the chapters they broke into the morgue to see a new body by getting a max imprint of a key). Im not sure how to feel about this novel so far, it is interesting to say the least. However, I think i know who killed the girl at the beginning. The one person he does actually care about is his best friend Howie, who has a disease that makes him bleed and bruise easily (he got a nosebleed in the morgue.... oops). If there is one person Jazz actually does love it would be his best friend.

I am currently reading Whistling in the Dark by Lesley Kagen. The book has 297 pages, and I am on page 100. Family love is really important in this book because the two main characters are sisters. The book is about the hardships of these two girls and how love gets them through it. They stick together and rarely argue, for the sake of their mom. They don't have a lot of friends or family members, so they have to rely on each other. They also really love their dad, who has passed away. Sally is always talking about him and replaying memories of him in her head. You can sense how much she loves him by how much she talks about him. She keeps a promise of her dad, to protect her sister; this is a big sign of love. Everything Sally does if for her sister Troo, wether she likes it or not. All of this is because of a promise Sally made to her dad.

I just finished reading World War 2 The Right Fight by Chris Lynch today. It had 189 pages and now I just checked out World War 2 Dead in the Water by Chris Lynch. This book has 188 pages and I haven't read any of it yet. In my book if the main character would invent anything they would probably invent a new tank. I say this because my character drove a M4 Sherman tank in the war. He was always talking about how he wanted a new better tank so he could fight the enemy easier. I think he would invent this no doubt just because he really wanted a new tank. My characters tank also blew up in the end by a German pilot. So he would kind of need a new tank to drive. I think his tank that he invented would be way more maneuverable and faster because he always talked about how it lacked in speed and maneuver capability.

I am reading the book Outlaw Platoon, there are 359 pages and I stopped reading at page 230 today. How does love come in to play in the book Outlaw Platoon? Love has a very large impact in this book. The reason I say this is because the men not only love each other and treat each other like family they love their families that are back oversea's at home. I think one of the toughest parts of being a soldier would be leaving your friends and family behind at home. In the book the men have to wait in line for hours at the base to get a call home. The call usually lasts about 10 minutes. The only other means of contact with family is by letter or email. Another way that love plays a role in the book is the love the men have fro each other. Throughout the entire book they have slowly become closer and closer to each other. If the men want to stay alive they must trust that the others will be there for them and have there backs if they need. One of the final ways that love is shown in this book is the love for the dogs at home base. Even though it is looked down upon to have animals at home base the men bought dogs and are raising them and teaching them new things each day.

I am reading the book The Nightingale by Kristen Hannah. It has 438 pages, I stopped on page 275. In my book the winter does have a big role in the story. My book takes place during the Holocaust, and one of the main characters hikes up and down mountains to cross boarders many times throughout the winter. The other main character starves herself to keep her daughter healthy and well in the freezing cold nights of winter. She sees her best friends daughter get shot trying to run away in the high snow banks along the forest path. Isabelle takes downed air men on multiple journeys in the harsh terrains in the snow, to get them back in planes and brining the Nazis down. She suffers the cold harsh winters, to save hundreds of lives a few at a time. Vianne tries to keep hope that staying alive throughout the cold winter will save their lives and be ready for her husband to come home. Vianne is asked to take in her beast friends son, so she has to get more food and be prepared for the next coming winter.

I'm reading Unite Me by Tahereh Mafi. It has 197 pages and I ended on page 135. Love plays an important role in this book. Juliette's family never loved her, so now at 17 she's trying to make her own family out of the friends she meets. Which is also difficult being a fugitive and all. Doesn't help that she'll accidentally kill you is she touches you. Lets not even mention how social awkward she is. But besides for her friends, she also falls in love, so that is a big part of the book to. This book is actually a book Mafi added to the already completed series with other peoples perspectives about things that happened. I really love her books.

I am reading the book I am a SEAL Team Six Warrior and today I ended on page 65. If my character was given a white t-shirt to decorate i think that he wouldn't decorate it at all. The reason for this is because he is a Navy SEAL, and SEALs don't like to stand out. When SEALs go on a mission their primary goal is to get in and get out without being seen. So with him being given a white t-shirt he would leave it how it was. When someone becomes a SEAL they have been inducted into the elite military force and gain lots of respect. Granted they all like the respect and popularity that they get. Most don't like to make it seem like they did all the work. They'll give credit to as many people as they possibly can when it comes down to a successful mission.
