I've been reading Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. It has 435 pages and I finished on page 397. The book, and the whole series, has helped me develop a story of my own. To pay homage to how it's inspired me, I named one of the character's pets "Harry". Rowling's world has a magic system that is clear, yet up to interpretation, making the people in the world wish to explore what it can do further. I want to have the magic system in the world I'm building to be fairly similar, but work differently. For example only demons in my world can use magic, and only certain types of demons can use certain magic more easily thank other types of demons (Fire demons consider Shadow Magic one of the hardest, while Shadow demons feel as though it's second nature).

The book I am currently reading is Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. It has 391 and I stopped on page 172.
One food that I would choose to describe this books is Sour Patch Kids because this book has moments were it is sweet and then sour. Katniss has won the Hunger Games which is the sweet part but afterward she has many meetings and a wedding which is the sour part. A mine in District 13 was shut down because of chemical leak and now the people of District 3 are refusing to send sea food to the other districts as a sign to the government. This book is just like Sour Patch Kids with the way they taste and how the book leaves a taste in my mind.

The book Im currently reading is Hunger by Michael Grant. The book has 608 pages and I'm on page 522.

A food that would probably correspond with my book would be old ramen noodles. I chose this food because its a food well known for how cheap it is. In Hunger, The group is going through a food shortage and is on the brink of starvation. Their left with the few canned foods left in the town. Ramen Noodles would probably be along the lines of those foods. But another key part of why I chose Ramen Noodles was because Ramen Noodles has so many preservatives and chemicals. Under the town where the group is living, radioactive waste is leaking from a near by power plant into the sewers of the town. The chemicals from ramen noodles and chemicals from a nuclear power plant, sane thing.

I am currently reading My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick. The book has 394 pages and I stopped on page 308.

One major event in my book is when Sam, the main character, starts talking to her neighbor, Jase Garrett. Her mother doesn't like the Garrett family. But Sam realizes that the Garrett's family is the type of family she would love to be a part of. The next major event is when Sam and Jase finally kiss. Sam starts falling for Jase and her mother has no idea that Sam is even talking to any of the Garrett's. The next major event is when Sam's mother finally learns that Sam is talking and hanging out with the Garrett family. Her mother forbids Sam to go over there again but, Sam doesn't it anyway. Another major event is when Nan, Sam's best friend, and Sam are takes a test in school. Sam notices that Nan is cheating and has been cheating all during high school. Nan then tells Sam that she does it because she need to get out of their town and leave everyone behind, including Sam. The last major event, just happened, Sam, her mother and her mother's boyfriend, Clay, are driving home when Sam's mother hits something. Sam doesn't know what because she was a sleep and then woke up when it happened. Sam just found out that her mother ran into Jase's father. I need to keep reading!!!!!!

My book that I im reading right now is shadow of doubt. It has 221 pages in side the book. And today I stopped at 162, a good birthday present for my person in the book would probley be a weapon. Why would they need a weapon ? Well she is getting hunted down by some spy or so other guy and she might need to pertect her self. And she needs to be very sneeks and smart so she wont get cought by the dude. That would help her out a lot things like them weapons would help her get far in this book. She is going to find her dad and some undercover people are trying to stop her. Her dad has something that they really need. And a weapon for her right now would be good in this story.

1. I am reading Hitler's Secret by William Osborne. Today I stopped on page 169 of 333.

C. Make a timeline of the major events (minimum 5 events) in this story. Write 2 sentences for each event=10 sentences.
C. First, Leni and Otto are recruited to go on a top-secret mission. They are to spend two weeks preparing for whatever could possibly go wrong.
     Second, they manage to screw up the entire plan. Not only that but they come just a couple days before the girl's birthday, and are almost caught kidnapping her.
     Third, on the way out Angelika, the girl, disappears and then is found just outside a well-known Nazi building. And she remembers being inside, while only the highest ranking officers are allowed in.
     Then, Otto compromises the whole mission trying to see his family. After barely escaping the Nazi police, he picks a fight with another character, almost killing himself.
     Finally, he mets up with Leni and notices they are being followed. Then, they are confronted by the Nazis and take prisoners.

I read The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight today. I finished the book in class today, ending on page 236.
C. The first major event would be when Hadley misses her flight to London to be in her dad's wedding. She had to catch a different flight and meets Oliver, who she befriends and falls in love with on the way. The second event is when Hadley barely made it to the wedding on time, and met her step mother Charlotte. She is completely overwhelmed by the prospect of her dad getting married. Then, she finds out that the event that Oliver was flying to London to attend was his father's funeral. She leaves the wedding and finds Oliver, who talks to her but is grief stricken and turns her away. Following that, she returns to the church and apologizes to her dad. She wants to be a part of his life, and she makes up with him for the years that she's spent hating him. Finally, at the end of the wedding, Hadley sits on the steps of the church and to her surprise, Oliver shows up. They come to an understanding, take a slow dance together, and kiss.

1. Last class, I finished the book Game Changers. Today I picked up the 536-page novel The Green Mile I stopped on page 57.

2D. Reading this book hasn't helped me yet, but I believe it can teach me something. This novel takes place during the Great Depression, which is a time period that I don't know much about. It also is told through the eyes of a prison guard, which is an interesting viewpoint due to the nature of the story. I would like to learn how exactly the trial went for John Coffey, the man found guilty of the rape and murder of two girls. I think reading this book will help me get a greater understanding of how African-Americans were treated in the Great Depression. I think reading this will also help get a wider understanding of why Stephen King is considered a great author.

I am reading Breathe by Abbi Glines 333 pages. Right now I am currently on page 169 of this book.
D. Reading this book has helped me mentally. It is always a way that I can escape from this world and just relax. I love being able to go home when I have had a stressful day at school or work and just read. Whenever I have a major headache I'll just go into my room and put on some country music for about 10 minutes and then read for about 45 minutes. Also reading this book lets me forgot about the outside world and it makes time go by so fast when I read it. Reading this book also lets me go to bed a lot faster if I read it before I go to bed. This author just knows how to hook readers into getting lost in the story. She explains every little detail that can just have you see what you are reading and it makes it just so much better and makes me think of how I actually write.

I finished reading Looking For Alaska by John Green. It has 221 pages and I finished it in class today.
A. A food that represents my book is an onion. There are many parts to the plot line and you have to peel back each layer to fully understand it. After Alaska dies Miles and Chip try to figure out if it was suicide or an accident. They start peeling the "onion" by talking to eye witnesses and her boyfriend. Once they start peeling back more and more facts the mystery becomes smaller. This is like when peeling an onion because as you peel the onion it gets smaller. As they put together more of the story they also find that it becomes harder to hold back the tears. This reminded me of an onion because as people chop them they can cause someone to cry. So, because of the layered plot line and sad content Looking For Alaska reminds me of an onion.

1. I am currently reading Risked by Margaret Peterson Haddix. I am on page 129 of 305.
2. B. For the character, I am choosing a 14 year old boy named Jonah. He is a missing child from history and is really curious about what his true identity is. He is also an experienced time traveler. His friend, JB, knows everything there is to know about time and about the missing children. JB refuses to tell Jonah about his true identity no matter how much Jonah begs him. For Jonah's birthday, I think he would want to travel to the future and get a mind reader so he knows who he really is. Jonah can use it on JB and figure out his true identity. A mind reader would also be good for knowing how his crush, Andrea, feels about him. He cannot seem to ever figure out what she is thinking.

I finished the book, Operation Tenley by Jennifer gooch hummer. I started reading Th1rteen R3asons Why by Jay Asher. It has 288 pages and I am on page 43.
D. Reading this book has help me in a way. I may have just started reading the book, but it allows me to realize how a girl feels before she commits suicide. The main character, Hannah, has committed suicide two weeks prior. In the first couple tapes of hers, you can hear that she has no regrets at all. She is saying anything she wants, and is also laughing. As she is talking about her reasons, she is saying them with no remorse. But, since she is committed to ending her life, she is saying what she has wanted to say. It allows me to see how someone is thinking when they are going to give it all up.

1. I finished the book Eleanor and Park. I just started reading The Sister Pact by Stacie Ramey. It has 310 pages in it, and I'm on page 30.

2.(B) I picked the main character in my book, Allie. The appropriate birthday gift for her would be some sort of art supplies. Like brushes and paint. She is a really good artist. In the book, she wants to go to a very professional art school. She has some art supplies already because her father gave them to her. Giving her more and more art supplies would make her paint more. Her father is pushing her to succeed in life. Pushing her to get good grades, and paint. Art supplies are good to have. She would love them.

I finished Stealing bases and I'm currently reading Fifteen Love by Nicole Leigh Shepherd. It is 265 pages and I'm on page 42.
B. In the story there is two twin sisters. I would get Maggie, the sister that is technically the youngest, a new tennis racket. She quit tennis years back after heating her trainer in the nose. She is getting back into it to prove a point to her twin sister that didn't quit. She is stuck using the racket from when she was younger because she has been out of the game for so long. Her sister is not happy she is getting back into the game because if she messes up it will more than likely affect her. But, I want Maggie to prove her sister wrong.

I'm currently reading "Rouge," by Julie Kagawa. I'm on page 305 out of 459. One of the main characters in this book is Riley, otherwise known as Cobalt. In the book it decribes that dragons enjoy wealth and shiny objects. Therefore, I believe that Riley would enjoy minerals or even just money. I say this because things like money and minerals are usally grouped with wealth. Although, I also think just a machine that creates an array of lights would work also. This is because the flashing is said to attract the dragons in the books. In the book it says that dragons aren't attracted to things like fast cars or even nice houses; so it's best to give money. So in conclusion it would be best to give the dragons shiny minerals, or wealth.
