3. I can't remember how the ending of my last book ended but if i remember right it was really good. It taught me that no matter what goes down in life, never get up and your family will always be there for you. The girlfriend stayed faithful to her man while he was out in the middle of no where during the war. He also was wounded so he was let go. He needed to find a hospital soon, because his wound is starting to get infected and it will slowly kill him.

I am still reading Navy Seal Dogs. There is 169 pages. I am on page 111.
When I read this book it makes me feel like I now nothing about dogs. It teaches me how to train a dog how to attack some one. This book has a good explanation on how to train a dog and what not do. It tells me how the dogs handle situation they go through in combat. For an example the dogs have to be calm when they are going though gun fire when trying to find bombs. I like this book because I would like to be in the military. This book would be good for any on that likes dogs. Also wants to now how a dog can be in combat.

The book i am reading is No easy day, which has 316 pages and I'm on page 238. The more i read this book the more i get emotionally attached to this book. This book has a clever mix of humor and seriousness. I like how the author takes a serious situation and turns it into a funny and comical event. An example would be when they talk about killing bin laden, they say when the mission is done they are gonna start working on making a movie staring them selves. The book is a very good book and I'm finding the more i read the more i want to know about Navy SEALs. This book is a very good book and i would recommend it to anyone that like military books. I'm glad i picked this book and i hope to finish it soon

I am reading The Thing About the Truth, which has 285 pages and I stopped on page 236 today.

Last Wednesday, I started to read this book. This book makes my emotions go in all different directions. At first I am happy but then just like that, I am either mad or sad. This book goes from before to after in every other chapter, so it messes with your emotions. This book leaves you wondering and wanting to know the truth. All it does is lead on, which makes me mad since I want to know the truth. It's confusing going back and forth and back and forth. Overall, this book is interesting, and I am glad I stuck with it when I started it.

I just finished the book Now & Forever today actually. It was 258 pages. The last book I finished was Now and Forever. It was a pretty teen romantic type of book. The ending of my book was actually pretty good. This guy named Ethan was a singer and he got signed to a record label. He had a girlfriend named Sterling. They started out pretty good, and when be made the big time, his relationship went down the drain a little bit. He was always gone and didn't pay much attention to his girlfriend. At the end of the book, Ethan finds sterling in the crowd of one of his concerts. Thats when Ethan realized Sterling was the one for him. At the end of the book they got back together and sterling traveled with Ethan through is music career. I really like this kind of teen books because I can really relate to some of them.

I just finished the book Lone Survivor and I am now just starting a new book called The Living by Matt De La Pena.
The last book I finished was Lone Survivor and it was actually a terrific book. The story and the events within the story were very suspenseful. This really helped me get into the book because I like when a book keeps me on the edge of my seat. I am glad that i chose to read this book because of the events that took place within it.

I just finished the color purple i finished all 288 pages.
The ending to my book was one of a pure joy. Celie, the main character, finally gets the house she has always wanted, the love of her life comes back to her, and she learns to appreciate the color purple. In the book, her lover Shug, has a conversation about god and that god isn't a man but rather something that is found in everything and she finishes by saying that god wants to be loved too thats why he gives us mountains and the color purple because everything wants to be loved. This was so powerful because at the end when everything seems to come together for Celie, we are taken up to her room where we see that her walls are all purple. Their is defiantly a lot of symbolic meaning behind everything that happens in this book. I can't believe the author let her finally have a happy ending that she so well deserved. This book was memorable as well as award winning. and it's not wonder this book was incredibly moving.

I just Finished the book Shadow. The book had 140 pages, I started it on Wednesday February 3rd and I finished it on February 6th. The ending to my book was very unexpected, and I liked that it was so much more different than I expected. The book was about a kleptomaniac who had to see a therapist about his condition. He would steal objects that he didn’t need, the objects weren’t expensive or very big, but he got a thrill out of stealing. The one time Charlie decided to take something expensive he gets caught; however, all of his previous takings he managed to blend with the shadows. After Charlie is diagnosed as a kleptomaniac he tries to work on his condition. He is later shot because he was at the wrong place at the wrong time.

I finished reading UnWholly by Neal Shusterman. I was on page 271 on January 29th and finished it on February 4th. I did enjoy the ending of UnWholly because two people from the first book are back to hanging out with each other and helping each other out. I enjoyed it because now that Connor and Levi are together they are going to go find Risa. It's sad that they lost to the Juvies, but in the end it's okay because it helped moved the story along. What may happen next may be that Connor and Levi find Risa. Although, it's never that easy to find someone. Connor and Levi are definitely going to run into some obstacles along the way of trying to find Risa. Risa may even move before they get even slightly close to where Connor and Levi are heading to. I think that they will find Risa for sure though and maybe they will cause an uprising and stop unwinding. If they stop unwinding all the kids that were caught by the Juvies may be saved.

I was reading the President's men and I stopped on page 35. I did like the ending to my last book, it was called Now. I liked how during Now Felix is 80 years old and in the previous two books he was ten. At the end of this book Felix has to save a child that was hit by a shingle off a house. He had a bad case of asthma so after he got hit by a shingle there was a lot of blood building in his lungs and Felix had to remove it. I think that after all of these events Felix will not continue doing surgery.

I am reading Harry Potter and the sorcery stone i started on 109 and stopped on 147 there are 309 total pages. I think the title fits well with my book. Later on in the book the mention the sorcery stone. They tell you what the stone dose and how important it is to have. At the very begging of the story that is what was in the safe at the bank. Hagrid took the stone and put it in the Hogwarts. Little did they know is that one of the teaches wants the stone at Hogwarts. So this book title fits really well for the book.

I'm reading the book Alive by Scoot Sigler and this book has 345 pages in it. Today I ended on page 202.

My book focuses on the survival of a group of people. Where I'm at right now theres a group of 23 people who have no idea where they're at. All that they know is that they woke up and it's their birthdays. This whole group also believes that they're only 12 years old when they're actually in their twenties so since they believe that they're so young they don't know how to cope with certain situations such as death and fear. Savage, the main character is the leader of all these people. Being the leader is an important position, so its almost a competition to see who's better. In some cases this rivalry ends up in death. Between the other characters and the obstacles that they have to overcome, it's a matter of life and death for them.

I am currently reading The Young Elites and today i stopped on page 201 and there are a total of 344 pages! This is the new book that I started on Tuesday. I have some very strong feelings toward all of the action that has been going on so far. The fact that the characters have supernatural powers really appeals to me and grabs my attention. The stuff that makes me cringe is when someone gets cut on the arm or neck from a sword. It makes me sad that the main group of people are considered out siders due to their deformities from a disease. However, when the main character finds a group of people just like her it makes me happy that she finally fits in somewhere. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series and i am not even half way down with it.

Im reading Trap and I stopped on page 93. There is 245 pages.

I think the tittle does refer to the story of my book. In the book they feel trapped because they cannot figure out how to leave the world they discovered in there dreams. Henry and his sister are trying to help there friend Alan find his older brother who is lost in the world of there dreams. The world is very different, they can do anything they want too. While Henry and his sister are looking for Alan they realize that they cannot wake up. They will be stuck in there dreams for ever. Hoping that when they find Alan he can help them escape there dream and come home to reality. Alan is very angry and dose not want to leave his dream because he can do anything he wants too with out getting punished. They are in a trap and they want out.

I am reading Once by Morris Gletzman, today I stopped on page 113 of 163 pages. My first thoughts of this book was it has a cool view point. Its view point is from a little boy Felix and he is living in an orphanage. This is during the beginning of WWII and it shows the innocence of Felix how he does not understand some of the things happening around him. There are parts in the book that have made me cringe because of what he is seeing. Theres parts where people are getting shot up stream in the river and he thinks its just hunters. He is so oblivious to what is going on around him. When he meats the little girl Zelda there is a part when a Natzi is pointing a gun at her head and I was afraid that he was going to shoot her. There are way more violent parts in the book than i would have thought from the first chapter and who the main character is. Being young and not knowing whats going on.

I am reading the island of doctor moreau. I stopped on page 21 and it has 138 total pages.
     I started the book the island of Doctor Moreau and i have to say it is quite interesting. This book, however, is kind of all over with the events that are happening in the first two chapters. In the first few pages we are introduced to these people in search of a lost ship. The ship has a name of lady vein and it quite valuable by the myths and treasures on it. The emotion I am getting from reading the first two chapters are not so much laughing, crying or cheering is more of an interested but ehh kind of feeling. I am not quite sure where all this stuff is leading but it seems as if it will all come together but still have mystery to it. I am quite interested in where it is leading and I would really like to find out what happens in the end.
