I am reading Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and I am on page 345 of 374 pages.

C. The Best part of my book so far is when Katniss was in her one-on-one with Hunger Game Sponsors. She showed up but no one was paying attention to her, they were eating a cooked pig with a apple in its mouth. Katniss saw this and she knew she needed to impress them. As the group of people were standing around the pig, she shoot an arrow at them and hit the apple in the pig's mouth. All of the sponsors turned around and looked at her. She, then, walked out of the arena. She was given a 10, which means many other sponsors will give her gifts during the games. The worst thing about my book is the background the story, these are 12-18 year olds fighting against each other until all of them are dead except one. I hope this will never be the life in any country especially in ours. The book can also be very slow at sometimes. But it eventually always pickups with amazing action moments.

I have recently finished Saint Anything, Wake, and Secret Girlfriend. I am currently reading Things I Should Have Known by Claire LaZebnik. The book has 311 pages and I stopped on page 180.

So far in my book there are a lot of things I really liked about it. But there also things that made me mad or sad. On of the best things so far in my book is the funny things Ivy says. My book is about a girl named Chloe who has a sister with autism, Ivy. Ivy says what she is thinking and some of the things she says are really funny. Even though Ivy doesn't notice that they are funny. One of the worst things about my book is that people make fun of or look at Ivy weird. When Chloe and Ivy go out in public, people stare and whisper things about Ivy. If I was Chloe, I would be so mad and yell at those people every time someone did that. It is sad when people judge or make fun of someone just because they're different.

I am currently reading Born Survivors by Wendy Holden. It has 366 pages and I stopped on page 172. This book has made me cringe at many different parts. One of the times I cringed was when one of the main characters talked about the problems they faced trying to go to the bathroom. In Auschwitz the guards would poke the prisoners while they were trying to relieve themselves. Another time I cringed was when one of the prisoners talked about having to eat out of a bowl that she knew was used as a bed pan. This book has also made me sad at different times. When the women talk about seeing their family members for the last time I always get very sad. They didn't know at the time that that was their last goodbye which is very sad. Whenever one of the characters passes the inspection I cheer her on. Even though I know they survive I still find myself cheering them on throughout the whole book.

I finished Oceans Apart and am now reading Blood Will Tell. I stopped on page 67 of 255.
C. The best thing about my book is how it switches perspectives and adds to the story from those different view points. I personally, love books that switch the point of view as it adds more depth and more details to what is happening. One of the worst things about this book is the grammar. The author has bad grammar and seems to write all the characters as practically the same. One of the best things though is how the author titles the chapters. The title seems random and confusing but is actually a key part of that part of the story.

Im reading Plague by Michael Grant and Im on page 85 out of 492. I finished Michael Vey over break.
The best part about my book is how you favorite character can become you most despised figure too. It adds twists in the story that you would never expect. The series has also made a environment where you can connect to certain characters. But some bad parts are that their stuck in the same environment.

I'm reading Insurgent by Veronica Roth. I stopped on page 296 of 525.

C. The best things of my book right now is character development. Tris, the main character, is becoming more impulsive and taking more risks. She isn't really thinking things through. Four is becoming more of a proud person. He feels he is the leader. A bad thing about this book is that it is slow. The action so far has been the same in every part. There is a lot of unnecessary conflicts too.

I am reading Odd Thomas by Dean Koontz and am on page 264 of 446.
The best parts of this book are the main characters, in my opinion. You are introduced to Odd Thomas, who can see spirits and is great at solving crimes based on clues left behind by ghosts. Not only this, but he is actually a very odd dude. The way that he describes things going around him, and the way he isn't bothered much by what he sees makes the book more humorous than dark. Additionally, you meet Little Ozzie, who, despite his name, is actually over 400 pounds. I think that these characters and their quirks makes the book amazing. There isn't much I see wrong with the book, though. The only concern I have is that sometimes it goes into too much detail, but even then I think that it almost contributes to the charm of the book.

I am reading The Year of Secret Assignments by Jaclyn Moriarty. I am on page 40 out of 340 pages. I finished reading Who Killed Christopher Goodman.

The connections I made with this novel was that I felt as if I was each kid in the book. Each one told their story and together it all made sense. Individually there was guilt with each kid and I know how it feels to hold on to something like that. They all thought that if my some chance something had been slightly different then Christopher would still be alive. I often analyze the things in my life this way. The what ifs and maybes haunt me the same way they haunt each kid who tells their story. Maybe I killed Christopher Goodman.

The book I am reading is the cellar by Natasha Preston and it has 347 and I am on page 109. A connection between the book I am reading and my life is that I have a boyfriend also and I know if I went missing he would try to look for me also. Another thing is in my book summer (main character) gets kidnapped and has to share a cellar room with 3 other girls. Her boyfriend lewis never stops looking of her. So I feel that my boyfriend wouldn't stop looking for me just hoe lewis never gave up on looking for his girlfriend. This book has put me to tears already. I could never imagine getting kidnapped. In my book one of the girls that he kidnapped mouthed off to him and tried escaping and he killed her for trying. That part made me sick and I teared up because I know in this world people are like that.

I'm currently reading "Raven's Gate," by Anthony Horowitz. I'm on page 55 out of 254. During Easter break I finished "The Kill Order" and started and finished "The Fever Code." The three best things about the book is how descriptive it is. It also creates a lot of suspense for the reader. The third best thing is that the author keeps the reader wanting more and more information, because you know little, as does the main character, about where you are. The one of the three worst things is also a blessing and a curse, the fact that you are exposed to little information about the main character. Secondly, it seems as though the beginning of the story has little meaning and makes the reader lose interest. Finally, I'd say the biggest downfall of this book, in my opinion, is the point of view in which it is written in. I enjoy a mix between first and third person views, but this book is written in a third person omniscient point of view. So in conclusion, this book has it's pros and cons, but I haven't read it enough to see which one out weighs the other.

The book I am currently reading is Asylum by Madeleine Roux, there are 310 pages, and I am on page 259

B. My book makes me smile, but then it makes you cry, it then makes you horrified. The book can change the way your emotions, by having friends hanging out and laughing, and then a character dying. The book has many twists that are not predictable, but you can kind of foreshadow what may happen. The horror is one of the main reactions, finding out a serial killer from the asylum may still be alive. But there are many light-hearted moments that make you smile. But the genre of the book is horror and mystery, so it doesn't last long.

I am currently on page 277 of 369 in The Martian. The worst part of my book so far happened way in the beginning. The story starts almost immediately with the crew leaving Mark stranded on Mars. A huge storm hits and they are forced to leave. However, Mark is hit by debris in the storm and they think he is killed. Turns out, he is still alive, now all alone on Mars. That was probably the worst part of the book so far. The best part is when you realize that there is a legit chance of him surviving. The whole story you are growing and connecting with him, so you do not really want him to die. My favorite part is when NASA launches a special mission ahead of time to try to rescue Mark.

I'm currently reading Past Perfect by Leila Sales. I am on page 24 of 306. I finished Two Summer today by Aimee Friedman. A. My connection to the book is finding a job and one that I could possible do with one of my friends. In the book the main character is in her last year of high school. I'm in high school. Another connection to the book is the annoyance of parents wanting to know your where about's all the time. She also has brown hair that is long.

I am reading Among the Imposters by Margaret Peterson Haddix. It has 170 pages and I am on page 63.

C. There are many weird and interesting things that have happened so far in my book. Luke is an illegal child so he has to get a fake ID and go to school with a bunch of boys he doesn't know. One of the worst things that he has experienced is meeting new people. He has spent his whole life thinking that everyday new was a danger to him because they might report him to the population police. He gets bullied a lot because he is very quiet and doesn't know how to do simple things such as pushups. One of the boys he is rooming with calls him slave and makes Luke do whatever is commanded of him. The best time of day for Luke is at bedtime where he can sleep without anybody tormenting him.
