I am currently reading You by Caroline Kepnes. I'm on page 40 of 422. I chose this book because it fits the criteria of mystery and it was suggested to me by one of my friends.
I expect to finish this book in a couple of weeks if I just sit down and read for periods of time throughout the day other than just in class. This book is very interesting and the main character is very creepy and disturbed. He is a book salesman that meets a girl in the store and becomes obsessed with her. He stalks her and believes that they are meant for each other that they love each other even though they have only had one interaction.

I am currently reading The Cabin by Natasha Preston, the book has 317 pages and I stopped one page 69. The book I chose was one that Mrs. Kistler chose for me and recommended.
I expect myself to finish this book in the next week or shorter. Ive been busy so its time to buckle down and read more. This book that I'm reading is full of mystery and it keeps me on the edge of my seat it also keeps me intrigued. The book also had this kind of dark side to it that makes me think who the killer is and I just can't stop reading. What I really like about this book is how they show people that they shouldn't judge people by what they look like or act. Its kinda ties into the saying don't judge a book by its cover. The cover really jumps out at you, but its kinda makes the book look boring but reading it just shows how good it is.

I'm currently reading 'Percy Jackson: The Lightning Thief". Its 375 pages and I stopped on page 309. I chose this book because I never read the Percy Jackson series as a kid. I think I'll finish it in a day or so, hopefully. I'm actually really enjoying this book. It's a little all over the place but it's still really good. I like how all the characters are very well introduced.

I'm currently reading the Kite Runner written by Khaled Hosseini it has 371 pages and im on page 81. I selected this book in our literature circles. I will have this book finished by April 15th. This book is confusing at first, but now I know the characters and their relations to each other. However, I still don't know most Afghanistan traditions and holidays. I think the story is progressing well so far, it started slow but it picked up fast during the kite fighting.

 I am currently reading To All The Boys Ive Loved Before by Jenny Han. I got to page 280 out of 355.
I choose this book because I have watched the movie and I wanted to see what the book had that the movie didn't have.
in 3rd quarter I finished 3 books so I think in 4 th quarters I could get to 4-5 books.
I am enjoying the book that I am reading a lot. I like it because every page is something new in Lara Jeans life. I love how dramatic, sad, loving, and inspirational the book is. there is so much feeling and expression that I get when I read the book.

I am currently reading Smiles to Go by Jerry Spinelli. Today I stopped on page 14 out of 248. I selected this just by wondering around the library, I saw it and thought it looked interesting. I will post likely finish this book in about a week and a half. I am not very far into my book so I cannot tell how much I like it yet. However so far it seems to be interesting and easy to read. So far though I dislike the depth of it so hopefully it gets deeper as I keep reading. So far it has been relatable in some aspects so that makes me like it more.

I just started the book called I am The Weapon by Allen Zadoff. I am on page 42 of 337.

I chose this book because it is very interesting to see what will happen when he reaches his destination because he is a very dangerous kid walking around a school but nobody knows who he is.

I think I'll finish the book in maybe the next week or so because It is very interesting and I want to keep reading it.

So far I really like this book. There are a few parts in the book that I don't really get, but other wise I would recommend this book to people like cliff hangers because there are a lot of them in the begging and they don't get to them again till the the end of the story.

I am currently reading Hippie Boy. I am on page 177 of 290.

I chose this book because it was in my favorite section and the back excerpt was appealing.

I think I will finish this book next week or in a couple of days.

I am enjoying this book. At one point I wasn't sure I liked it but I kept reading and think it is great. I like memoirs and I feel like the books in this genre can get similar and repetitive. I like this book because it is a memoir but different from the ones I have read before. I enjoy reading this book because it is unlike any others I have read.

I am reading On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft by Stephen King, there are 291 pages in the book and I am on page 153.

I have always admired Stephen Kings writing, I am personally have always enjoyed writing and want to pursue it as a career someday, so I think books like this are important for me to read.

This book is quite a bit shorter than any of the other books that I have read so I expect to finish by the end of this weekend.

I do enjoy this book, however, it has always been harder for me to read nonfiction/memoirs rather than fictional stories. I like the way he talks about the reason for writing the books he writes and the metaphorical meaning behind his books. He talks about how he's writing ideas come from nowhere and it is merely just his job to recognize when they come. He also talks about the way his writing makes him realize things about himself and helps to heal him.

I just finished the book This is Our Story by Ashley Elston. There were 312 pages, and I finished the book in 3 days. I had selected this book because I have been trying to get back into mysteries. They have always been one of my favorite genres, but I feel off of them this year. Like I said, I finished this book in 3 days, and although that isn't always the case, I plan to finish at least 8 books this quarter. I really enjoyed this book, it always kept me on my feet, it was hard for me to put it down at night. This book was about 5 boys who went hunting but only four came out alive, then Kate, the main character, tries to find out what really happens because she fell for one of the boys. That's about as much as I want to say without spoiling, but it is so so so great and I will definitely be recommending it to others.

I am currently reading Born at Midnight by C.C. Hunter. I just started this book today but there is 398 pages and I am on page 14. I finished Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I selected this book because it has some supernatural creatures in it. I usually do not read that much about fantasy books, so I decided to give this book a try. I read about 7 books in 3rd quarter. I plan to finish at least one book per week. So at the end of the 4th quarter I plan to read about 8 to 9 books. So by about next Monday I should be able to finish this book. I am actually enjoying this book because it is really different from what I usually read. Kylie the main character is going through some rough times. Her parents are divorcing, her grandma just died and she has one friend. But I like how strong she is. Kylie also has to face a stalker. I dislike the parenting in this book though.Because Kylie is like the the parent in the book. Overall, I like this book so far.

I am currently reading Unravel Me. Today I stopped on page 392 out of 461.
I selected Unravel Me because it is the second book in this series and I wanted to see what would happen after the first book.
Since I had practice every day after school, I didn't get that much time to read outside of class. But now that basketball is over, I expect to read a lot more. I will probably finish this book tomorrow.
I am enjoying the book that I am reading. It is a good book that follows the first one. I like it because the characters have different personalities as they did in the first book because I'm starting to see the meaning behind their actions more. All in all, I think I will finish this series.

Over my vacation, I started and finished reading Navigating Early by Claire Vanderpool, and it is 306 pages. I am currently reading I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson, and I stopped on page 69 of 371.

I chose this book because the cover is really interesting, and the description appealed to me.

I can guess I will finish this book in a week or a little more.

I enjoy the book I'm reading right now, but it can get confusing at parts. The book is divided into two life stories of twins, Jude and Noah. Jude is able to talk to her deceased mother and grandmother, and she is really popular and outgoing. Noah gets bullied a lot, and he's very quiet. So far, the plot of the story is really intriguing.

I am currently reading Cheated by Patrick Jones. I am on page 47 of 196. I chose this book because the back of the book really interested me. I heard that Patrick was a great author so I had to go check out one of his books. I expect to finish this book before next Tuesday because it is a short read and it is a very fast read. I am indeed enjoying the book I am reading right now because Mick Salisbury has been cheated out of options most people just take for granted. He just got dumped by his girlfriend and his mom just got a divorce so there is some tension in the air in the household right now. I don't dislike anything in this book right now. I enjoy at the end of each chapter there is a question and Mick answers it from his perspective so its interesting what he has to say.

I am currently reading The Hundred Lies of Lizzie Lovett by Chelsea Sedoti. I stopped on page 46 of 383.

The color was interesting to me because there aren't many yellow books. So I read about the book and wanted to read it.

I usually finish my books in a week or week-and-a-half, so I'll probably finish this book in about a week.

I am enjoying this book at the moment. The book talks about a girl who goes missing, and her friends must find her. The very beginning of the book was boring, because they really didn't get to the point fast enough, but otherwise it was good. I am looking forward to reading the rest of this book.
