William Shakespeare

"I love and hate him at the same time. His works of literature definitely made a huge contribution. He is smart and a genius when it comes to English. On the other hand, leaning his works is really painful. I still remember the first time I tried to…"

"Honestly, I'm not sure wether i enjoy non-fiction or fiction books more. I love being interested in a topic and impressing people by supplying them with facts that most people are unaware of. On the other hand, theres nothing like being sucked…"

"I personally don't think that I have fully reached the point of maturity in which I can respect and enjoy nonfiction books as they should be. But although I don't think I'm completely there, I have noticed an increasing intrest since…"

"First of all, I appreciated your honestly in your blog. The other reviews I have read have focused mainly on what it was about and less of their actual opinion. Thank you for telling us that you personally thought it was boring. Now I know that it…"

"I'm really into these kind of novels, so this book actually really interests me contrary to what you may think. I have read many books similar to this, but the plot of this particular story sounds unique, especially since the story format is…"

William Shakespeare

"I love William Shakespeare. While I certainly couldn't read him every day, his plays and characters are so interesting to hear about. Plus, trying to translate some of his schemes into modern day language can be a really fun brain teaser."

Yuri Shibata commented on Laura Smearman's blog post Has Summer Become Less of A Break?
"Yes, I must say that summer is not the same as it used to be. My summer isn't busy in the sense of a job or sports but as in more responsibility at home. Taking care of three energetic siblings all summer with the help of only an…"

"All the points you have pointed out are the same exact reasons why I enjoyed English this year. Not to mention, What's Not Wrong and the speeches we did were great as well. I must say, this year's English course was definitely the best…"

"I really happy with the amount of freedom we are given already. This is blog is for an English class so the rule of blogging about something that ties to English is essential, in my opinion. Even if we have to blog about something that ties with…"

Fourth Quarter Blog: Nonfiction vs Fiction Books

Fiction. Non-fiction. Two completely different types of books. From what I have observed, the majority of students/kids prefer fiction over non-fiction. However, as we age, we tend to enjoy non-fiction books more than fiction. (I’m pretty sure you’ve all observed the same as well.) Why is this? First of all, what makes us attracted to…See More

Yuri Shibata commented on Yelin Ha's blog post Changes in Taste of Books
"I must agree. I've also gone through a similar change this year. Before this year, I would only read fiction books. I couldn't comprehend why anyone would want to read a nonfiction book. Now, I can't understand why people…"

Yuri Shibata commented on Michael Chemello's blog post How do you Brainstorm for a Book Blog?
"I do the exact same thing except I read other summaries of the book I find online as well to get ideas and know what things would count as spoilers and should be left out. I tend to get really out of focus if I start thinking about what to blog…"

May Book Blog: Aftershock

Posted on May 4, 2012 at 10:23am 1 Comment

To be honest, I don’t really have much to say about this book. I just randomly picked up Aftershock off the bookshelf, only knowing that it was an Abraham Lincoln Award Nominee in 2010. I must say, however, that in my opinion, I think it was an okay book. Not too great, but not too bad either. The idea…

April Book Blog: The Hunger Games

Posted on April 20, 2012 at 7:38pm 4 Comments

 

After lots of persuasion through other people's blogs and reactions to the movie,  I finally decided to read The Hunger Games. I wish I had read it as soon as I heard about it, but sadly I did not. I waited several years before I even skimmed the book to see whether I'd like it or not. Either way, this book was definitely worth reading. Though it wasn't as intense…

March Book Blog: Jennifer Government

Posted on March 18, 2012 at 10:39pm 5 Comments

 

This month, I read a rather interesting book, Jennifer Government by Max Barry. The idea for the book was, itself, creative. The book is basically about a world where taxes have been abolished and the government privatized. The last names of each person has been changed as well. No longer are they names inherited from…
