"The lightning thief was one of the most interesting books I have read. I thought that it had some original ideas and put a kids spin on Greek mythology."

How to ace your speeches!

Speeches. Most people hate them, and why wouldn’t they? It can be pretty nerve-wracking to stand in front of a group of people and talk with no response. It can feel like talking to a wall sometimes. In school it’s worse because you have a whole class of people watching you AND your teacher grading it. There is a lot of pressure involved in giving a speech, but if you remember a few simple things you can get through all of your speeches like a pro.            The most obvious yet also ignored…See More

"Great blog post, Melanie! I have actually never read any of the Harry Potter books or even watched the movies. After reading this, I really want to get into the series. "

"Great blog Melanie! Obviously, I have read the books! And you know how much I love them! My favorites are this one, Goblet of Fire, Half-Blood Prince, and the Deathly Hallows. I think all the books are amazing but if i had to choose, those would be…"

"Great post Melanie! This book is my 3rd favorite in the series but I think the last book was the best. Coming in second place in my opinion was the Goblet of Fire. It is the 4th book so I am sure you will read it soon! going back to the…"

"I thought both the movie and the book were great! This book is definitely on the strange side, but it is still a really interesting read. The only part I didn't like was how you mentioned that they never tell us who the recipient of the letters…"

Melanie D'Andrea commented on Timothy Chin's blog post Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

For my independent reading book this quarter, I decided to stick with the Harry Potter series. For those of you who have read the books, you will understand how addicting they can be. What I’ve found is that at the beginning of each book, I am bored out of my mind, but if you can make it to the halfway point, things get exciting. I originally decided to read the books because my friend loves them, and were going on Spring Break together to California this year. While were there, we are going to…See More

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets!

Harry Potter is on to his second year at Hogwarts in this exciting second book of the series. He happily returns to Hogwarts after another dreadful summer with the Dursleys, but as usual, he finds it almost impossible to stay out of trouble, even when he is being blamed for something he didn’t do! When mysterious things start happening around Hogwarts, everyone is quick to point the blame towards Harry. In order to prove himself innocent and find out just who exactly is causing all the trouble,…See More

As a dead spirit, life gets pretty lonely. Amelia has no way of contacting the human world, no sense of smell or touch, and no humans can see her. She has no need for sleep and therefore has extra time to spend lost and confused about her current situation. She also has nightmares, in which she re-lives her…

Good blog post Melanie. I have heard of water for Elephants but I have never been inclined to read, although I think I will now. The Percy Jackson series is really good but don't watch the movie because it kills the effect. Also, I happen to be the person that never really read Harry Potter until this year. I'm on book 2 and movie 3. I think you should keep going with them because I really like them
