I am reading Devils Pocket by John Dixon, total or 338 pages and I stopped at page 287.

I chose the color red and color black. I chose red because of the violence, bloodshed, danger, strength, and war. As they are in an underground fighting ring, that makes the main character battle with his anger as well as his opponent. The strength is from a chip as it was injected into him in the first book. But has become more accustomed to what it entails and how he hits harder and faster than the pre-chip Carl. The black is for the mysterious vibe that comes from the book. Along with wealth, power, evil, death, elegance, and anger. In the ring the they show the opponent that went down to look like he was dead, but they have scientific technology to drain energy out of older men or women to heal the younger fighters. The evil sadistic vibe that also comes out of this that they are okay with people dying, along with the fact that they love bloodshed as they pay a lot of money to accustom these fighters.

I am reading Until Friday Night by Abbi Glines. I stopped on page 154 of 328. I finished Stepsisters on Saturday and The Poison Jungle on Monday.

At this point in the book, I think the two colors that fit best are silver and turquoise. Silver is emotional and sensitive, but also mysterious. Both of the main characters, West and Maggie, have elements of their life that most don't know about. Maggie watched her father kill her mother and went mute after that. Having recently moved to a new town to live with her aunt, uncle, and cousin, almost nobody knows the reason for her being mute. West's father has had colon cancer for eighteen months. No one in town knows, except West, his family, and Maggie's family. The color turquoise relates to communication and clarity. Both West and Maggie have their demons. Maggie has learned how to cope with hers, but West is struggling, which is understandable, considering his father is wasting away right before his eyes. Maggie starts speaking to West (and only West) and he starts to feel a sense of peace around her. They help each other with their mental and emotional struggles and start to grow closer as friends.

I am reading Rebel, Bully, Geek, Pariah by Erin Jade Lange. I stopped on page 239 of 310. I hope to be done with this book by the end of this week.

I think the colors are red, pink, blue, and black. Red because of violence, heat, and war because they are running for the cops and getting shot at. Pink for love and romance because to characters are starting to fall in love. Blue for harmony, unity, trust, truth, and confidence because they all have to work together to run from the cops. The final color is black for wealth, mystery, fear, evil, and sadness because the book is like adventure and mystery. The cops are only looking for wealth and evil and the kids are all feared and sad.

I am reading Flowers in the Attic by V.C Andrews. It is a 411 page book and I stopped on page 185 today. I have picked the color Purple and Color Grey to describe this book.
Purple because the Cathy and Christopher try to make the attic more friendly to the Twins who are scared of the Dark Musty Room that has never been used before. They are scared of the insects that are up in the attic. They all put their dedication to making the attic more colorful by cutting out flowers from a coloring book, coloring them and putting them in vases. They also made paper worms and squirrels to watch over their garden they made. I chose Grey for the unemotional or detached grandmother that locks them into a room and then demands that they do not make any noise unless they are in the attic. She is abusive to the twins, she lifts carrie up by the hair and she kicks Cory across the room. She also whipped her daughter 1 time for every year she was born and 15 times for sinning. She has the total of 47 slashes on her back, that have scared and then some that have reopened.

I am reading Empress Orchid by Anchee Min. It has 336 pgs and I am on pg 238. Two colors that best fit my book are black and yellow. I chose black because it meavnskeeping things hidden from the outside world. The the book the Forbidden City is full of secrets. The citizens have no idea of what's going on. They are losing faith in their leader. I chose yellow for two reasons. It can mean illness and betrayal. The emperor I s sick for most of the book because he is so stressed. There are many issues arising and they can't be fixed by the traditional ways. There is also a lot of betrayal in this book. You can really trust no one. I think there are about three loyal people in this book.

I am reading The Tomb by S.A. Bodeen. I stopped on page 56 of 249. Yesterday I finished the book Love and Gelato.

I think that the colors Purple and Yellow would work best with my book. The color chart said that Purple means ceremony. In my book, the main character lives in ancient Egypt. The main character talks about her best friend who became a prince and died from an earthquake. After this, she talks about how they would prepare the body for the tomb. Also, the chart said that Yellow is betrayal. The main character in my book gets betrayed by her best friend (who was the prince that died), after his mother died and he got her position in the palace. Since it takes place in ancient Egypt, people who live in the palace get much more power over the regular people. After he gets his mothers position, he stops talking to everyone outside of the palace, leaving the main character betrayed.

I am reading Sunrise Over Fallujah by Walter Dean Myers. Today, I'm on page 22 of 281.
I believe red and brown are the best colors to portray my book. Red for war, violence, heat, danger. Brown for outdoors and reliability.

Sunrise Over Fallujah, by Walter Dean Myers, takes place one year after the attacks of 9/11. Robin Perry is angry and wants to fight for his country. Their Original job is to interact with the Iraqi people and try to obtain peace, but it doesn't go as planned. Perry soon believes that "winning" is surviving. While the soldiers are outside in the warm weather, they depend on each other for their safety and their survival. I chose red because it is warm in Iraq, it is a dangerous to be, war, and violence. I chose brown because for the majority of the time, they are outdoors fighting and have to rely on each other.

I am reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett. It has 522 pages and I'm on page 91. The colors that I think best fit this book are green and brown. I choose green because there is a lot of talk about growth. The maids are trying to be more respected, and the white woman Skeeter is trying to build her life starting from the very beginning. I also choose brown, which represents the maids. They are friendly, serious, and provide help for the white people. It was hard to decide which colors to use because I am just starting this book and I don't know the characters very well yet, but I thought these best represented them so far.

The book I am finishing up right now BalZac i on page 130 out of 186 i hope to be done with this book by Friday. The two color is choose for this book with where i am at are Gold and Pink. the color Gold stands for success and luxurious , and in the book Lue and the narrator are successful in caring out there plan and they do get the books. And they have the books witch to the right people where as good money .Pink a=can be described as loving, caring, nurturing. I personally think that Lues love towards the little white seamstress unconditional love. The only reason that he stole all the books was so that the little white seamstress what be more educated and wouldn't be looked at as just a mountain girl. I personally think that there is a lot of different colors that could go along with this book these two just seemed the easiest to explain.

I am reading Panic by Lauren Oliver. It has 408 pages and I'm at page 189 today.
I think the two colors that best represent my book is blue and red.
Blue for trust, loyalty, and integrity. Red for anger, passion, action, and energy.

In the book Panic, it talks about how every summer there is a game that proves survival of the fittest. When you enter, there is no escaping it. Heather and her friends, Natalie and Dodge, have all entered for a winning prize of 67,00 dollars, In the game you must complete a task and each one earns you points. Some are more dangerous than others, but this book is like a more civilized version of the hunger games. heather and her friends stay loyal to each other, which is why I chose blue, Red for when everyone is fighting and theres so much anger and passion to want to win this game.

Start with a sentence that includes name of current book, total # of pages and where you stopped. Also let me know if you finished a book since last Friday's journal.

Then: Colors Speak Louder than Words! Carefully examine EACH of these color symbolism charts.


After you examine each, pick the TWO colors that you think BEST represent the book that you are reading. In AT LEAST 6-8 sentences, explain WHY you chose each of these two colors, making sure to include meanings from the chart and connecting characters or plot or themes from the book to the colors you chose.
