Maddie Z. commented on Tyler Johanson's blog post The Life of an Independent Reader
"I understand what you're saying about either not having time to read, or choosing something different to do. Lately, reading has been my go to on stressful days when there is a lot going on. I find that if I read instead of automatically…"

Maddie Z. commented on Enia Kiusals's blog post Accelerated Reading Program
"This post is great! Unfortunately, I hated AR. It drove me away from reading because I knew I was going to be tested on it later. In third grade, my teacher forced us to meet point-based goals as part of the AR program. I don't think stress…"

Maddie Z. replied to Gary Anderson's discussion What's Not Wrong?
"This forum is awesome. We spend so much time complaining about our lives (including myself), so it's nice to focus on the positives. We are seven days away from summer vacation and I'm psyched. The sun is finally out and it's warm! I…"

Maddie Z. replied to Briana Michaels's discussion Whats your favorite type of poetry?
"I love poetry because it can be any type you decide. My favorite is free verse. I use it as an emotional release or just simply writing for fun. It's nice not to have to deal with format, although I am a fan of some other structured kinds. I…"

Natalie Lloyd: If You Shake My Favorite Books...

   If you shake my favorite books, memories will come tumbling loose. I remember my mom building those memories every night before bed. We would huddle under the covers on a cold winter night and read together. It made me feel safe to know that she would be there until I fell asleep. I think back on these evenings to renew my gratefulness for that privilege. One thought that comes to mind is about the fairytale, Thumbelina. The little girl is taken away by an evil witch and she must use her…See More

"I read The Face on a Milk Carton in fifth grade and was immediately intrigued. I smiled when I saw this blog. It reminded me how much I loved the book. It was the first time I really got into mysteries. Ever since then, it has been one of my…"

Maddie Z. replied to Katie Prochilo's discussion Are you sure you hate writing?
"In class I am not a huge fan of writing, but when I am at home by myself I love it. I don't want to have to deal with a certain structure. Just as Kristin Tran said above, nobody can judge you or make you change anything about your piece. It is…"

Maddie Z. replied to Rachel Wilhelm's discussion Mispronounced Words
"This is a good debate! It's terrible, but people drive me crazy when they pronounce words differently than I do. I'm very picky about how I speak and I always think about what I'm going to say before I say it. Eeeither and Iiither bug…"

Maddie Z. commented on Hayley Scheid's blog post Dear John: When Life Comes Between Love
"I read Dear John a couple of days before the movie came out in theatres. It is my all-time favorite Nicholas Sparks book. I'm not one to cry while I read, but this novel had me bawling for John when Savannah broke up with him. Sparks is…"

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Open your eyes. Look around. What secrets do the people near you hold? Are they petty? Malicious? What keeps them hidden?       When I first picked up The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, I was intrigued by the title. It was different and I hadn't read a mystery in a long time. The synopsis of the novel does not do it justice.  The…See More

Maddie Z. commented on Matt Baughman's blog post My Top 11 Movies
"Wow! These movies are fantastic choices, although I am too skittish to watch most of them. Inception is a movie I saw three times in a row trying to pick up every detail I could. It makes you think in ways you've never before. Inception is one…"

Maddie Z. commented on Stephanie Spartz's blog post Top Ten Things To Do Instead of Homework

"This post is great! It made me laugh. I have always told myself that I am not an obsessive fangirl, but at times I get pretty crazy over someone. It's painful to like somebody who doesn't know you exist! I am a huge baseball fan that would…"

Born to Play: My Life in the Game

Posted on May 29, 2014 at 10:30pm 0 Comments

     Ever since I was little, I have loved baseball. It is something I look forward to watching every summer night with my dad. This past baseball season, I saw the Boston Red Sox win the World Series. The games were exciting since I am an avid Boston fan. Recently, I read second baseman Dustin Pedroia's autobiography Born to Play: My Life in the Game. Pedroia writes about the hardships he faced throughout his lifetime, constantly being underestimated because of his size. At 5'8 and…

Reading Makes Me Feel.......

Posted on March 20, 2014 at 10:00pm 0 Comments

      So, as a reader, I am all over the place. I am interested an array of genres and topics depending on how I feel at the moment. My thoughts are just about as unpredictable as my book choices. Some novels I pick up make people cringe, whether they are sappy romances, or grisly mysteries. I love them all. I read books to magnify my current emotions and understand exactly what I am feeling. My mom read to me before bed from the time I was three months old until I was ten. I will thank her…
