Two Worlds Intertwining in Scarlet

                        Lunars, lust, lies, and lives at stake. Princes, Princesses, and prisoners escaping jail. Blood, bioelectricity, and a boy named Wolf. These are just some of the things I read about for my third quarter reading book, Scarlet. Scarlet by Marissa Meyer is the sequel to her first book, Cinder, with many different twists and turns trying to tie together the story of Cinder and Scarlet. One of my favorite aspects of Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles series is the magical realism…See More

A Brand New Twist On a Classic Tale

               One of the novels I have read this quarter was a book recommended to me by my sister. The ruby red slipper on the cover screamed “Dorothy” but the title read Cinder. Cinder by Marissa Meyer is a novel based off of the classic fairytale Cinderella, but with a whole different story line. The novel takes place in East…See More

The Best Part About Reading

      In her blog post “There’s a Lion in My Closet” Natalie Lloyd wrote “If you shake my favorite books, memories will come tumbling loose.” This phrase really spoke to me, and in turn, made me consider all the books I’ve read, and which were my favorites. Honestly, I don’t think I could even choose a favorite book if someone made me. What I do know is, like Natalie Lloyd, some of my favorite books store memories I hold dearly. I believe the best part about reading is finding books that make…See More

"Great blog post! I would have to say that I am a mixture of 1, 4, and 6.  I have been through the phases of liking poetry, being so interested in a book to the point where I don't know about  what I'm about to walk into, and…"

"Hey Melissa! Great post! I definitely can relate to a few! I'd say 6 is probably the one closest to me. If I walk into a library tying to randomly pick out a book it'll never happen, it has to be recommended to me. Number 5 is a funny one,…"

Going...going...Gone Girl

            For my independent reading book this quarter, I read the ever so popular Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. This book was a New York Times best seller, and adored by so fans that it was made into a movie. As someone who has read the book, and seen the movie I can say it is very good and fairly accurate, but of course like many readers, I have a lot of opinions on this novel.

            First off, this book was written diary…
