I have read 1o book in total and 5 this quarter/
My favorite book was the Dh because it brought back so many memories and it was interesting. to learn about how many sports dan actually played when he was in high school.
My least favorite book was called 12 years a slave because it didn't keep my attention and I never knew what was going on in the book.
I learned as a reader that many books are a lot different then other books because of how the authors view on how they want to right them.

1. I have read 15 book total. Only 9 this quarter.
2. My favorite book this quarter was called My life Next book. I really loved the characters personalities. This was a romance and adventure book. That is probably why I loved this book so much.
3. My least favorite book is called Born at Midnight. I did not like the characters. Because I could not relate to them very well. I also did not like the setting of the story. I was confusing to understand what the characters were doing.
4. I learned as a reader that I do not like biography books. I love romance and sports books. I also love adventures and mystery books. Overall, I loved taking tis class and will probably take it again. Sometime soon. I learned a lot of different books this semester.

1. I have read 11 books this whole semester. I just wrapped up my 7th book for 4th quarter.
2. My favorite book this whole semester was called The Rig. I really liked the plot and setting of this book, very interesting.
3. My least favorite book of the semester was called Cheated. I disliked this book because of the scattered setting they had. One chapter they would be here and the other they would be somewhere else. I personally thought it was confusing.
4. I learned as a reader that I really like Adventure Fiction books and also Spy Fiction books because that is what entertains me the most. I never thought these genres would catch my eye but I thought I would try something new!

1) I read 4 books this semester, This weekend I finished my 4th, Salem Falls. I have read 7 books this whole semester.
2) My favorite book was The Long Walk by Stephen King. This was the first book that I read in this class, but I really enjoyed it because it was a phycological thriller.
3) My least favorite book of the semester was The Eyes of The Dragon by Stephen King. I didn't like this one very much because it was a fantasy novel and I am not into that genre.
4) I learned that I enjoy books that challenge me mentally. This is why I enjoy Jodi Picoult, she makes me think about the way that I view certain people and the world. I realized that I can read a book very fast if I enjoy it from the start, but if I get bored with a book it can take me forever to finish.

1). I read four books this quarter. I have read 9 books this whole semester.
2). My favorite book would be Asylum by Madeleine Roux mainly because it was very interesting the whole time. There was always something new. I love horror books and I also like watching scary things on my tv.
3). My least favorite book this semester was Crash into Me by Liz Seccuro. I didn't like it because it was a biography and I'm not really into those types of books. Also it was really depressing.
4). I learned this semester that I really enjoy romance and horror books the best. I do really like reading, but I never have the motivation to do it. I did read a series, and I learned that the author really likes suspense and adding things in there that really throw the reader off.

1. I have read 4 books this semester I have read a total of 7 books this semester.
2. My favorite book this semester was Warrior by Darrin Donnelly because it has stories from sports legends from all the different sports I like. I really enjoyed reading this authors book because they're not only good stories but they have good life messages behind the stories.
3. The book that I least enjoyed this semester was YOU because it was hard to follow and their were almost too many details and not enough storyline. When reading I like to relax and not put too much thought into what I am reading so following the story while reading all the little details made the book somewhat boring to me. I did not finish this book because it was too frustrating for me to follow.
4. This semester I feel that I have improved my reading a lot. My reading speed has gotten much faster. I read more books this semester than I usually would in an entire year. This class has helped me prepare for the ACT due to the fact that I can read the passages on the ACT much more quickly and I have a better time understanding the passages I am reading.

1. I finished a total of six books this quarter. I finished 12 books this whole semester.
2. My favorite book I read was Comeback. I really enjoyed it because it was a great story and kept me on my toes.
3. I started reading many books I did not like so I simply stopped an returned them. But I did not like Soccer Chick Rules because of the genre and why I read it. It was a sports fiction story probably for young readers. I had to read it to reach the minimum.
4. I learned that I really enjoy memoirs. I very much enjoyed being given time to read everyday. I enjoyed that. I like reading real life stories about situations that I have never had to experience.

2) my favorite book was Forever and Always Lara jean because I really like romance and relationship books. I like that you get to read what the author things is ok and what there understanding of a couple is and ever chapter they were in a new situation.
3) my least favorite book was Sold. the book was to slow and dragged things on
4) this semester I have read a lot more books then I normally would. now that I was given the time to read and learn what books I liked it really made me a better reader. it helped me not waste as much time looking for books that I knew I would not like and still reading them.

1. This quarter I read 5 books. Throughout the whole semester I read 10 books.
2. My favorite book this semester was Finding Me by Michelle Knight. I think the way she wrote it was very good because it allowed me to picture and imagine more accurately what she felt like.
3. My least favorite book this semester was From you to Me. It wasn't bad it was just kind of boring and didn't have enough going on in it.
4. Throughout this semester I became a better reader. Along with that I actually was able to finish books and not get bored half way through. I have struggled with that in the past, but I have found more genres that I enjoy and can read a lot more of.

3. My least favorite story this semester was Thirteen Chairs because there was 13 different stories told and some of them weren't to my liking. The story was also set up in a weird layout.

2. I love the Percy Jackson series. It's so intriguing.

3. I didn't really have a least favorite, but I guess I'll pick Dear Nobody: The True Diary of Mary Rose. It's an amazing book but I've read it nearly 9 times.

2. My favorite book this semester was Hatchet by Gary Paulsen. It was very exiting and always made me wondering what would happen next.

I read three books from Gary Paulsen and I learned that most of his books have to do with the outdoors and adventure.
