I am reading The Eyes of The Dragon by Stephen King and I stopped on page 156 of 372. I like reading books about dystopian worlds which is why I enjoy Stephen King as a writer so much. However, I also enjoy realistic fiction novels.

Love is what Flagg has for the younger prince Thomas. However, Flagg loves Thomas because of the ways he can manipulate him to do the things he wants

Originally, Flagg was the advisor of Roland, Thomas's father. Now since Roland is dead Flagg will become Thomas's advisor when he is crowned king.

Violent acts have occurred in this novel, such as the murder of Roland (Delain's former king). The people of Delain do not know this, but this act was in fact committed by Flagg.

Evolution of the kingdom will occur now that Thomas is to be be crowned king and Flagg is his advisor. No one knows is, but Flagg had evil plans in store for the kingdom of Delain.

Right now, I'm reading the fiction book 'The Fault in Our Stars' by John Green. Today I stopped on page 119 out of 313. I like a variety of books, but I really like the sorta supernatural books. (e.i.; 'Bad Girls Don't Die', 'The Haunting of Sunshine', etc..)

L- 'The Fault in Our Stars' is a LOVE story. it's about the romance and the struggles between Hazel Grace and Augustus Waters.

O- This book can be kinda OMINOUS at times. It really keeps you wondering and some of the foreshadowings just blend into the book, yet they also kinda stick out in that ominous way.

V- This book is VERY INTELLECTUAL. It has lots of big words that most wouldn't understand.

E- This book is also very ECCENTRIC.

I finished The Darkest Path, by Jeff Hirsch, which had 320 pages. Today I started reading Swindle by Gordon Korman. It has 252 pages and I'm on page 41. I love to read fiction books the most because it sparks my creativity.

L- Lies. Swindling is partially based off of lies. Griffin finds out the hard way when he's lied to by a pawn shop worker.
O- Oblivion. Griffin is oblivious to the true value of his baseball card. Obviously the book is based off his attempt to get the card back.
V- Vindication. Griffin now is looking for vindication and is looking to obtain his card back. Griffin is put in a vice to get his million dollar card back.
E- Expedite. Griffin was expedited and would do anything for his card back, even expediting the man who lied to him. Everyone is by Griffins side trying to help him get his card back.

Yesterday I finished reading The Naturals by Jennifer Barnes (308 pages) and started the book We Were Liars by E. Lockhart (124/225 pages). The books I enjoy reading the most include mystery and suspense.

L - Liars is a group name of teenagers who see each other every summer at a cabin with their families. Leaning more about one another throughout the summers brings them closer together.

O - One of their names is Cady, and she hits her head on a rock, loses her memory, and doesn't come back to the cabin for two years. Once she gets back, she tries to figure out what really happened in her "accident."

V - Validating what happened the night of the accident is hard for Cady. She continues to ask her friends what happened.

E - Everyone in the story in part of the Sinclair family, except for Gat, who is Cady's love. Even though they have feelings for each other, they can't seem to make it work.

I finished Comeback and it had 306 pages. I am now reading The Hate U Give and am on page 57 of 444. I like to read realistic fiction and biographies/memoirs of people and their life story.
Life, this book is about one girl's life and how she is overcoming some challenges, I like it because it is very different from what my life would be like.
Over the span of her 16 years, she has seen two of friends shot right before her eyes. It must be incredibly hard to witness that.
Very sad, so far this is pretty sad. She just saw her childhood friend die and is now depressed.
Even though she has seen horrible things, I think she will overcome it. I know she is strong and will be able to overcome this.

I am reading the book called "Dare Me" I am on page 213 of 336. I love reading mystery books, along with adventure.

L. Love is a big game in this story. The boys are seniors in high school and love to have a great time and want to be remembered in their school. They do a serious of pranks and go through a large number of girlfriends in the book.

O. They are ON the edge of getting the cops called on them. They had a group of 4 boys copy their stunts and they got arrested. Now do they get arrested or not? Their dares care very brave.. Like on thanksgiving they went and put on Kevlar bullet proof vests on and acted as turkeys and got shot at at least 5-6 times.

V. This book is VERY adventurous and very thrilling. You never know what going to happen next. Benny (the main character) has to maintain the dares to get money. He also has to keep his grades steady and have them not drop since his parents are very strict and don't know about the dares he is doing.

E. Every character in this book has an interesting past. From loosing family members and everything in that sort. Ricky, he is Ben's best friend and he does the dares with him. He has a scholarship for Basketball but one of the dares prevents him from doing that and makes him sit out for the rest of the season.

V ia and Auggie are very close, and share a lot with each other. This has also cause Via not to like Jack because of some of the things he's done to Auggie.

E very time someone sees Auggie for the first time they are shocked. Most people try not to act surprised but everyone always is.

L- Loving this adventure book so far. I like the main character, but also the authors writing styles, including different words to explain things.

Right now I am reading Just One Day by Gayle Forman. There are 369 pages, I stopped today on page 103.

I love to read a lot of types of books, I'm not super particular. I enjoy mysteries, and love stories, and occasionally a novel in verse as well.

L- Love is something I think will play a huge part in this book. The characters just seem to have a huge connection.
O- Often in this book I tend to forget what is happening around me. It is a very good book to get lost in.
V- Very often I can relate to the main character. She is very awkward and timid, and I think a lot of people can relate to her.
E- Every time I read this book I smile because of how genuinely cute this story is. The storyline just tends to capsulate everything anyone could want from a trip abroad.

I am currently reading the romance book The Foreseeable Future. I stopped on page 206 of 378. I like romance books the best.

Love is everywhere you look. Even at a nursing home.

Only Audrey can control her life, not her mother. She doesn't want her mother controlling her anymore.

Very hot and steamy in Crescent Bay. There's always something to do.

Everyone knows everyone. Small towns are like big families.
