Regret- John begins to regret sticking with his beliefs due to the fact that things are going as he though they would if he sticks with his beliefs.
Intelligence- John is intelligent so he stuck with his beliefs through many hard times but this crisis makes him think about what could have been.
Never- John never gave up on his beliefs completely and he never realized that even when things hit rock bottom if you stick to what you believe in things work themselves out.
Growth- Through the experiences John has throughout the book he grew in his beliefs once he realized that he did things the right way and followed his heart never losing sight of what matters most.

I am reading On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King and I am on page 174 of 291.

S-Seeing Stephen King's life as a child I am surprised that he has made it to where he is today. His family was very poor and he did not become a successful writer under later in his life.
P-Progressively throughout the novel, the reader gets to see the things Stephen King does to better his writing. From a very young age he had a talent for making creative stories.
R-Realizing that he has a alcohol and drug addiction. Stephen King realizes that he has an addiction to drugs and alcohol later in his live and checks himself into rehab.
I-Insightful. Stephen King gives many insightful tips about using your best tools while writing. He talks of the importance of being direct with your writing rather than dressing it up with fancy vocabulary.
N-Never stop writing. He talks about how you should always keep going with a story even if you don't think it is your best work. He almost stopped writing the novel Carrie but his wife made him continue with it.
G-Grieving the loss of his mother Stephen King drank even more. Eventually, Stephen King realized he had to do what was best for his family and go to rehab.

I am reading Hippie Boy and am on page 272 of 290.

Summer is Ingrid's favorite time of the year because it mean she can escape her home and spend it with her dad. Together they have a fun time living on the road.
Pride, Ingrid takes pride in driving all the way from Texas to Utah. However, when she gets home, her mother is horribly mad at her for thinking she could drive all by herself.
Routine, she finally makes a routine of barely being at her house to avoid Earl, her nasty stepfather. She even stays up a little later to get the bathroom all to herself so she can take a bath.
In one time while bathing, she overhears Earl and her mother fighting. It does not end well and he ends up hitting her mom.
Nothing but surprises, this story is full of new things coming up here and there. One time this happens and then another happens right after it.
Great book though. I love how it is different than most memoirs but also is real. This actually was her life.

I am reading shadow house you can't hide I stoped on pg 99 of 210

Specials is the name given to the kids wearing the masks. they are the worst but they can be saved.

People are not to be trusted. that goes for every one.

Running is how you live in the house. you are always be ing hunted.

Isolation that is what the wants to do. it wants to keep them separated.

Never trust any one not even your brain. it can play tricks on you with out you knowing it.

Gut wrenching story. it is creepy and I love it.

I finished Unravel Me by Tahereh Mafi and started to read 3,096 Days in Captivity by Natascha Kampusch. Today I stopped on page 60 out 310.

S - Starved. Natascha was starved and beaten in a basement. She never lost hope while she was in the basement though.
P - Priklopil. Wolfgang Priklopil was the man that abducted Natascha. He threw her into a delivery van and took her home to his basement.
R - Restlessness. Being stuck in captivity, Natascha did not get any sleep because she was scared. If anyone was stuck in an unfamiliar place, they would begin to feel restless.
I - I like this book so far because it starts from her background. When she lived with her mother, it was really bad. After she was abducted, her life in the basement was almost better than what it was living with her mother.
N - Natascha Kampusch lived in Vienna, Austria. She was abducted at the age of 10 in 1998.
G - Girl in the Cellar is Natascha's other book that she wrote about her time being held captive. Girl in the Cellar is more about how she comes to terms with her abductor.
