I am reading Now. It has 182 pages and I stopped on page 53. I think the title of the book is appropriate. It fits the book very well. The title grabs you attention and makes you want to read it. The title could make some people wonder why the title is that and what the point of the title is. The author doesn't title each chapter. It just starts out with Now. If I was the author, I would do the same thing thats already there. I would start off by saying Now and then a sentence. I would also leave the title the same. It suits the book very well and its a good title.

I am reading fallen angels. I stopped on page 232. The title of the book is Fallen Angels. Fallen angels are fallen soldiers.
Richie Perry is a 17 year old guy who had a dream to open a book store, but instead he is going to fight in Vietnam. Richie wouldn't have made it without his friends. Its scary to think that this all happened in 1960. My grandpa was drafted into the war as well.

I am reading The things they Carried. the book has 246 pages and I stopped on page 120.
I remember my dad telling me about my Great-Uncle Denis and Great-Uncle Robert, who served in Vietnam. I read in the book that a few men had killed themselves when they got home. Although Uncle Robert died, they don't think he killed himself; murder hasn't been ruled out, but it was never proven either. We don't bring up Vietnam around Denis or my Grandpa. It was a hard thing for them to lose one of their brothers, and even harder to nat have any justice. Both Denis and Robert came back different after the war, my grandpa said he was 13 when they left, when they came back they just weren't the same. Robert would wake up screaming in the night, and Denis would sit at the bar and drink.

The book I'm reading is dark blue the page I'm on is 72 and there is 204 pages. Yes I have had an experience with something that happened in the book. Kara had a friend named Jordan. They always would hang out with each other. Until she wanted to join cheerleading. Kara dose not like cheerleading. Then when Jordan did not make the team so then they were not friends anymore. That is kind of what happened to me my friend was in a spot that I did not like but I still supported her. Then the next day we were not friends anymore.

I am reading The things they carried. There are 246 pages and i stopped on 136.
B:The title of my nose with the book very well. The title make me want to find out what do military people cary while at war. This book is doing a great job on describing what they are carrying while on patrol. I think the author chose this title because in the book they describe what they carry while at war.

I am reading stay alive.
B: The title of my book is interesting and makes me want to read it. "stay alive" is a thrilling suspicious title which makes someone interested right away. The author does title the chapters in my book and i believe the titles fit the chapters

I am reading the things they carried. I stopped on page 125. This book is very good and i connects to the American people and all that they had to go threw during the 1960's. I know that if it wasn't for the Vietnam war i would have never been war. My grandfather was drafted and before he left for war he had a baby boy with my grandma and the baby boy was my dad.

I am reading Planet of the Apes and I am on page 120 out of 160. Journal B: The title, "Planet of the Apes" fits the book really good. This is an appropriate title because in the story the whole planet is run by apes and humans are slaves. The title makes me want to read the book because in our world apes belong in zoos, not running of the planet. The author does not title the chapters. I would name the beginning chapter as "Houston, we have a problem," because they get caught in a solar storm and Leo crashes on the planet. I would title the chapter I am on right now as "Freedom," because the humans are escaping captivity from the apes. I feel like the author named the book perfectly because of the way it plays out. In the end, Planet of the apes is a really good title for this book.

I just finished the book rot and ruin. It has 458 pages
A memory that I have the relates to the book is he wasn't very close with his siblings and at the end he found a way to be close to him by finding common grounds. I have that same memory with my siblings because i was never really close with my siblings at first but, when we find common ground we became really good friends.

I am finishing up Alice in Zombieland by Gena Showalter. There are 404 pages and I stopped on page 383 today.

The title of my current book is appropriate. The title does grab your attention if you are interested in zombies. The author does title each chapter with creative names that relate to the chapter. The author probably chose the title Alice in Zombieland because the main characters name is Alice, Ali for her nickname, and she lives in the world with zombies. It also is kind of a dubbed version of Alice in Wonderland, so that's probably what gave her the idea most. If I were to title the book I would have probably chosen something short and simple, like Alice Among the Dead. I would choose Alice Among the Dead because it real relates to what happens in the story.

I finished Devil's Pocket and am starting Gone in which I ended on page 54. The title of Devil's Pocket fits the book very well because they are fighting in the middle of a volcano, referred to as the devil's pocket. Gone also fits the book well because all the adults vanish at the beginning of the book. Devil's Pocket doesn't have titled chapters and the chapters of Gone are just titled by times. The titles of both books draw you in a little bit. Gone makes you want to figure out who left and if they will ever return. Devil's pocket isn't referred to in the book until the very end but the reference holds a lot of meaning.

I started reading The Eleventh Plague by Jeff Hirsch. Today I finished on page 115 out of 278 pages. The title of my book fits with what is going on in the story. The title is what made me want to read the book. No, he doesn't name each chapter, but the fist chapter would be the catastrophe. The second chapter would be the beginning, because that is when you really get into the action. The third would be the rush because they get attacked by these people. I think he used the eleventh plague because there is like eleven stages of the plague. I think I would give it a similar title, like After the War because that is when it is placed.

I am currently reading How They Croaked and am on page 83 of 184.
The title of my book is very appropriate. This book is basically about how famous people died. The title indeed grabbed me! Each chapter is titled with the name of the person that died, i.e. Albert Einstein. I wouldn't change any of the titles. I think the title is good but people could be offended by the word "croaked". I would title it, how they died. Boring but to the point.

I am reading Fallen Angels and there are 309n pages and I am on page 232. The title of my book goes well with the story because they call the soldiers angel warriors. The title came from a character saring how the soldiers were all angel warriors and how they die at such a young age. The author chose the title because when the "angels" die they fall and do not get back up. I would title this book "Going Through Hell and Back" because there is nothing but horrible events taking place around the characters life. He has seen his friends and colligues die right in front of him and kill people. He also is away from his family and is always concerned about them with no closure on how mama is doing because she stopped writing to letters to him it is only Kenny.

Today I read The Things they carried. I stopped on page 219.
My mom has told me stories about my grandpa was in war. Some things that are similar are that when my grandpa came home from war he was a different person. The war had changed him. My mom told me that my grandpa talked about the war but not the bad things that had happened. I thought it was really interesting to connect my grandpa with The Things They Carried. Some things that are different was my grandpa wasn't in the forest he was a B1 bomber on a plane.

I am reading Fallen Angels and I am on page 188 of 309.
From what I have read so far, the title of the book is appropriate. The fallen soldiers are fallen angels. The title does grab my attention because it makes me wonder what and how the fallen angels have died. Each chapter in my book is not titled. I would title the very first chapter, "From small town, to in country." The other two titles of chapters would be, "A Fallen Friend," and "A Close Call." I think the author chose the book title because of his fallen friends and near deaths in Nam. I would've titled it, "The Life of an American Soldier in Vietnam." I would title this because the book goes along with a soldiers daily life in Nam.
