I am reading The River by Gary Paulsen. The book has 117 pages and I am on page 84. The colors that I picked to describe my book is Brown and Red. I chose brown because is stands for friendly, earth, outdoors, longevity, and conservativeness. This describes my book perfectly because they are staging a wilderness stranding and are in the middle of the Canadian wilderness. The next color is red. The reason I chose red is because is stands for strength, power, and heat. When Derek gets struck by lighting and goes into a coma. Brian has to use strength to get him to civilization before he dies. he also has to battle the elements and heat exhaustion.

I am reading Dauntless: The Lost Fleet. The book has 304 pages and I am on page 258.
I think it would be red because excitement, energy, passion, love, desire, speed, strength, power, heat, aggression, danger, fire, blood, war, violence, and all things intense and passionate describe my book perfectly. My book is about intergalactic war and it has a splash of romance. It doesn't have raunchy romance, the book has adorable romance. The underlying themes of the story include; passion for the fight, love for comrades and home, power of will and strength of mind. The book is also very intense because there is so much room to fail and so much to be lost. But because of John "Black Jack" Geary they have a chance at making it home.

I am reading Dreadful Sorry by Kathryn Reiss It has 340 pages and today I ended on page 67. I think black and red represent my book. Red represents aggression, danger, fire, blood, war, violence, aggression, and all things intense and passionate. This represents my book because Molly, the main character in my book, is struggling with an internal battle with a unnatural fear. She always feels in danger when she encounters water and has a war inside herself when she sees water. Black also represents my book because black represents, mystery, fear, evil, anonymity, unhappiness, sadness, and death. This represents my book because there's a mystery revolving my book. The readers don't know why Molly is deathly afraid of water or why the weird things are happening to her. We basically don't know much about the background of Molly.

I am currently reading no safety in numbers by Dayna Lorentz. this book has 263 pages and I stopped at page 39. I think red and blue. I chose these because of the situations the characters are in. They are going through some tough times and there is a lot of excitement. I think this book is very interesting and I intend to continue to read it. I other colors would better represent it because this is more of a action book.

I started reading The Curse of The King. It has 307 pages and I stopped on page 180. One of the colors I am choosing is Orange. Not only is it my favorite color, but it explains a lot of one of the characters in my book. They are all kids they have a lot of energy enthusiasm and warmth towards them most of the time. It is a lot like Jack. My other color would be red. It explains the whole book. With the excitement and war and everything.

Right now I am reading We Die Alone by David Howarth. It has 198 pages and I stopped on page 56 today. I think my book represents red and orange the most. it represents red because red is energy and excitement. This book is very energetic because its about a group of Norwegian soldiers who are lost in the middle of winter. that is very energetic and exciting if you ask me. And orange because there is a bunch of enthusiasm and passion. They need to be enthusiastic because they need to survive. They need passion if they want to live a full life.

I am currently reading The Fate Of Ten by Pittacus Lore. The book has 399 pages and I stopped in page 335.

One of the colors that best represents my book would be red. I chose this color because in my book there is a lot of action and war stuff going on. Some words that describe red would be danger, blood, and war. This connects to my book because right now they have been fighting a war and there has been a lot of fighting and blood that has been spilled. Red also means passionate and this connects to my book because all of the characters are close in one way or another. They are passionate about what they are fighting for and want to survive.

Another color would be yellow. I chose this color because they are a lot of happy and bright moments in my book, but there are also some bad parts and a series betrayal. Some words to describe yellow would be betrayal, hope and joy. One character makes a bad betrayal and it makes me sad. The people have hope that they will win their war. And there is joy when they find the people that have went missing.

I finished The Magicians Nephew and started The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe. The novel starts on page 107 in the chronicles of Narnia and finishes on page 199, I stopped on page 124. The two colors I picked are Blue and Turquoise. Which in a way almost represent the same things. Blue represents tranquility, love, loyalty, security, trust, and intelligence. The negatives to this color are coldness, fear, and masculinity. Turquoise represents spiritual healing, protection, and sophistication. The negatives are envy and femininity. The negatives of both colors would be used to describe Queen Jade in the Magician's Nephew (She is also the white witch in the Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe) because she is cold hearted, strikes fear in people, makes it forever winter (literal coldness of blue), envy's the power the children and Aslan have and is feminine because she is a she. Aslan himself represents love, trust, intelligence, loyalty, spiritual healing, and protection because he represents God/Jesus in the chronicles of Narnia. The country that he makes represents Tranquility because all is peaceful within its birth except for the evil the children bring in. The children represent loyalty towards Aslan when he gave them a task to pick a special apple (from an area that represents the Garden of Eden) where both the children had the option to be swayed by evil (The White Witch/Jadis) but stayed loyal to Aslan.

I am reading Searching for Sky there are 276 pages and I ended on page 205 today. I chose red and blue. Blue represents my book in the way that Sky is peaceful and comfortable before she is taken to California. She knew how everything worked on the island and had a sense of security. She had trust in her mother and her "father" Helemut. Once her mother and her father figure pass away she only has her close friend River. After she is taken from her island I think the book represents red. Se is filled with anger and changes in a way. She reunits with River. I think they are starting to fall in love.

I am reading The Cure For Dreaming by Cat Winters. There is 342 pages in the book and I am currently on page 317. The two colors I chose for my book is pink and yellow. I chose pink because there is many types of love and excitement in this book. The main character loves the ideas of women's rights and wants to be able to vote. She also falls in love with the man that hypnotizes her into hating the idea of women's rights. I chose yellow because there is betrayal and hope in my book. Betrayal happens when the main character's dad hires the hypnotists to take away her voice and hate the women's voice. I think the main character gets hope when she has enough money to run away to live with her mom; who believes in women's rights. I think she is very hopeful for her happiness and her future.

I am currently reading The Unwritten Rule by Elizabeth Scott, there are 210 pages and today I stopped on 149. The first color that I think descibes the book very well is the color yellow. I chose this color because of the dishonestly and betrayel part. This represents the book because they main character and her best friends boyfriend kissed. Which is betraying the unwritten rule and also betraying her best friend. The worst part is that the boyfriend and the best friend are still dating because the main character and the boyfriend haven't told her yet. The other color that I chose was black. I chose the color black because of the fear aspect. In the book the best friend fears her parents because of the way that they disown her. And the boyfriend and the main character have the fear of telling the best friend what they have done.

I just finished the book Love by Jerry Spinelli. I am now starting the book Pretty Tough by Liz Ligelaar, this book has 246 pages. I picked the colors blue and orange. These best represent me as a person and my personality. Blue basically means I am a very calm and peaceful person. I like this because when I'm calm I think better. Orange represents that I am very active. I like this also because I need to be active to be having fun. The characters are very calm in my book. She is very understanding but in my new book she is very active also.

I am reading Pretty Tough by Liz Tigelaar. I am on page 96 of 246. Red and yellow are the two colors I chose that best represent my book. Red is strength, agressiveness, energy, and passion. Yellow is happiness, creativity, optimism, and betrayal. Red connects the characters in the book because they are all competing for a spot on the team. The characters are siblings too. Strength comes in when they start tryouts, there is a lot of energy needed. Yellow is how happy the characters are in the book, when they make the team and make new friends. The optimism needed when they come to face scary obstacles. They need to be creative and cooperate with each other for the team.

I am reading How I Live Now by Meg Rosoff. There are 194 pages and I ended on page 127. I am choosing the color grey because it stands for gloom and sadness. There is a big war going on, she's far away from home, and she's being separated from her family. That's a lot of gloom. Just now they are walking through the wilderness, two teenage girls, because the army base they were on was attacked and they just got away. This a city girl too, from New York City, so she is struggling a bit. The second color I chose was black because it stands for mystery and death. They don't know what's happened to the rest of their family and people are dying all the time. I also choose black because it stands for protection. There was a soldier who always looked out for them and is the reason they got off the base.

I am almost finished with the book The Fear by Charlie Higson. This book has 485 pages and today I stopped on page 460. The two colors I picked were red and black. I believe that these two colors really fit in with the book. Why I chose black, some of the themes that fall into this color include anger, unhappiness, fear, evil etc. This novel is set in an unhappy setting, where a lot of fear and anger is clearly shown. It rarely has any happiness shown, and when it does, the happiness is usually countered by something going terribly wrong. Why I chose red, some of the themes that fall into this color include power, blood, danger, war, violence. I believe that these are some of the themes shown throughout the novel. As mentioned before, there is rarely any happiness, and the happiness is usually followed by danger. There is indeed a lot of violence in this novel, as there is a lot of blood and danger. Considering that many people have been killed and brutally slaughtered. This is generally not a happy book.

I am reading Delirium by Lauren Oliver. There are 441 pages in the book and I stopped on page 226 today. The first color I believe to be represented in my book is Blue. In the book love is a disease and people who have the ability to love are uncured. Once they turn 18 they get cured so they are unable to love. If the cure does not work they are executed or go into the wild if they somehow survive. The main character in the book ends up finding an uncured male and falls deeply in love with him, trying to survive on love. During her evaluation to try to get paired with another cured she says her favorite color is gray. I believe gray is the second color to represent the book. I believe gray makes her feel safe in her world. It helps her to survive with her love for the man. Thinking about the life she would of had if she hadn't met Alex, the gray color also represents the sadness she could of endured.
