I am currently reading The Nazi Hunters it has 256 pages and I am on page 41. The genre of the book is a narrative nonfiction. My favorite book form first quarter would have to be The Heart and The Fist. Its the book that I found to be most interesting and it was the type of book I like to read. I prefer to read military based books that usually deal with the war in the middle east and occasionally older wars like WWII. A majority of the book was about the training that the main character went through which is also one of the things I like to read about. I personally don't have a reading list or certain authors to look for. I like to read about military or wars or basically any conflict between nations. So far this quarter I've read roughly five books. By next quarter I will have hope to read anther ten or so books.

I finished One Paris Summer which is 348 pages. This was one of my favorite books from this quarter. This book is one of my favorites because it is a love story but it is different then most. When you read a loves story based in Paris it normally have a pretty set plot line. This book was different then that and it keeps you entertained. The main character is really relatable and funny. She is also going through some tough time so it is interesting to see how she deals with that. On my reading list for next quarter is the maze runner series. I have been told that it is really good and it is in a genre I like. I have read 14 or 15 book this quarter. I hope to double that by the end of the semester.

I finished Breathe today, which had 333 pages.

My favorite book from the first quarter was The Seven Ways We Lie. I chose this book as my favorite because it follows along with several different characters and you get to read their backstory rather than only getting to know one character's WHOLE story throughout the book. There were a lot of relatable issues that the characters had, and I think that made the book slightly more captivating and easy to follow. I really enjoyed this book and have recommended it to several people.

On my reading list, I have the rest of the Sea Breeze novels. I just finished the first one, and I really liked it.

I read 12 or 13 books. I hope to finish the semester with 30.

I am currently reading Faceless. It has 341 pages and I stopped at page 50. The genre of the book is Teen Fiction.

My favorite books from first quarter were All the Bright Places, The Cellar, Schizo, and Psychopath. I really can't just choose one because they were all amazing. If I had to choose only one book I guess it would be Psychopath. I like Psychopath because it's a very mature novel. It's written nicely and very interesting. I like everything about the book except the ending. He kills himself and that's no fun.

I don't have much on my reading list. I read what I'm recommended. I plan to read Faceless and then see what books the library has.

I think I read 6-7 books. I hope to read 2 more books than last quarter.

I am currently reading the It's not summer with out you by Jenny Han her second book to the summer I turned pretty. I stopped on page 57 out of 275 pages, the genre is romance and is sad and depressing because someone close to the protagonist has died. I read quite a few good books that are high rankings for me, All The Right Places was a 10 I just couldn't put the book down, and this other book called Schizo it is probably a tie. Both of these books had the same writing styles and the characters I could relate to, Jenny Hans series is really good also I'm planning on reading all of them too. Books I want to read is the second book to Schizo called Tweak, and the third book I turned pretty so more of Jenny Han books and Nic Scheff. I read a total seven books this quarter, next quarter my goal is at least ten or eleven books. I think I can do it this year I've been reading like crazy and I like it my mind has more words to say now.

The book I'm currently reading is Cut me free and its genre is teen. It is 295 pages and I am on page 57.
My favorite books from first quarter was the Once, Then, and Now series. I liked Once because that was the first book and it made the other two books sound good. Then it followed Once and picked up where it left off. Now ended the book ver well and that's why they're my favorite.
The library has been getting new Holocaust books, so those are on my list. Otherwise I really don't have any on my mind.
1st quarter I read 7 books. Next quarter I plan on reading 8 or 9 but hopefully more than that.

Im currently reading both Cirque Du Freak by Darren Shan and Kitchen Princess by Miyuki Kobayashi and Natsumi Ando. I read the fourth volume of Kitchen princess but just started the 9th in Freak. They genres of both books is manga, but Freak is mysterious, action and fantasy. While kitchen princess is more a romantic comedy kind of genre. My favorite book was Inheart by Cornelia Funk. It was has been my favorite for years but its such a amazing fantasy book that it has to be my favorite. They way Mrs. Funk described and used the words it made it seem like you were actually with the characters. They were never any bad parts in the book. I don't have any really beside the series I haven't finished. For example J.K Rowlings series, and Cornelia Funk series. I read about 17 books this quater. My reading goal will be to read about 25 books by the end of the quarter.

I am reading the Heir by Kiera Cass I am on page 306 of 446. It is a dystopian novel. My favorite book from first quarter is probably The Clockwork Princess. I really enjoy that book because it has heavier topics but it presents everything in a lighthearted way. The characters are likable and reading it feels like a warm blanket. Its just a book that makes me happy. I want to finish the last books in the Lorien Legacies by Pittacus Lore. I also would like to read The Dresden Files. I read 8 books this quarter. I would like to read at least 15 next quarter.

I am currently reading I'm Not Her by Janet Gurtler, there is 288 pages in the book and I stopped on page 81. My favorite book form this first quarter is I Was Here by Gayle Forman and my second favorite is A Child Called It by Dave Pelzer. I Was Here was my favorite because it told a good story. It also kept me engaged all the time because it was so good. Every chapter wanted me to read more. I pick A Child Called It for my second because I always wanted to read more, I never wanted to put it down. It was so sad but really good. The story was really good and the message behind it was also very good. I want to read more books by Sara Shepard in the second quarter. I read 11 books in the first quarter and my goal for second quarter is at least 15 books.

I am currently reading Hunger and have reached page 360 of 590 pages. The genre of the book is science fiction.
My favorite book from quarter one was The Girl With Borrowed Wings. I liked this book because it was completely original and I've never seen anything like it. The writing was simple but very powerful in the images it conveys. This book really tested the limits of free for me and I really enjoyed it because of that.
I want to read more books from Michael Grant and possibly read the Golden Compass.
I read nine books this quarter. I hope on reading ten or more books second quarter.

I'm currently reading a fantasy book called Beyonders: Seeds of Rebellion. There's 483 pages in the book, and today I stopped on page 358.

My favorite book from the first quarter is this one. I really liked this one more than the first, it's much more descriptive and the story is a lot more captivating now that the stakes have been defined. There's more action, and more characters, along with better writing than there was in the first one. Even the humor is more my style in this book.

I'm going to read more Beyonders books in the second quarter. I'm hoping to also read some graphic novels or some Percy Jackson books next quarter, because those are my favorites.

I read two books during the first quarter. I'd like to read maybe 3-4 for second quarter.

I am currently reading Emma by Jane Austen. I am on page 129 of 418. The genre of Emma is novel of manners. My favorite book from this quarter was Unravel Me by Tahereh Mati. I loved this book so much because it is a great builder for the last book. It was my favorite out of the series because it had the characters that I liked together, together. The last book did too, but this one was a more suspenseful story. Some books that are on my reading list are Glass Sword and King's Cage because they are a part of the Red Queen Series. I am also looking at finishing all of Jane Austen's books. I read eight books this quarter. My goal is to read 10 books 2nd quarter.

I am currently reading Zero Night by: Mark Felton. This book is historical non fiction, it has 254 pages and I am currently on page 52. My favorite book form the first quarter would have to be Walking Wounded. Because this book was the final book in a great series that I read last year. My second favorite book would have to be The Blueprint. Because this book was a great story about the history of the New England Patriots. In the second quarter I plan on reading more books By Chris Lynch. I am currently reading a book by Mark Felton which is very good. In the first quarter I managed to read six books. So in the second quarter I would like to read another six books, if I can manage to read more than six that would be great.

I am currently reading Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz. I read 71 pages and stopped at page 97.

My favorite book this quarter was definitely Shredder by Niall Leonard. It was full of exciting adventure. It had me begging to see what happened to the main characters. As a finale I thought book was very entertaining.

I don't really have an author. I hope that I can find one soon.

I read six books first quarter. I hope to read ten books second quarter.

I am reading Unlikely Warrior by George Rauch. Im on pg 15 of 321

I have to favorite books this quarter. "Search and Destroy" and "Star Wars: Return of the Jedi". The reason I liked these books is because I love learning about war and I loved the Star Wars series. "Search and Destroy" was ver good because it got in depth in the war and it was really good on describing stuff.

Dean Hughes is a really good author and I plan on reading more of his books. I also plan on reading more Star Wars books.

I only read three books this quarter and this next quarter I plan on reading five.
