That Guy Who Wrote Of Mice and Men Wrote This Too

Hello guys, for January I read East of Eden by John Steinbeck. But, first I’d like to have some nice, uplifting music.

Things Not Seen by Andrew Clements


Things Not Seen


            This recent month, I read Things Not Seen by Andrew Clements. To be honest, I just needed a book to read for English class, so I found the nearest book in sight and threw it into my purse. My expectation was to read it for ten minutes that day, go home, and find a better book. After those…

The Myth of Sisyphus

The Myth of Sisyphus is an essay written by Albert Camus. In this essay, Camus questions the hopelessness of living. Does the meaninglessness and absurdity of living necessarily require suicide?  Camus implies that suicide is a confession saying that life is not worth living. This…

Outliers (January Book Blog)

Have you ever wondered what it takes to be successful? Why were the Beatles so much more successful than other bands of their time? What made Bill Gates more successful than other computer programmers? These are just some of the questions answered in Outliers.

Pride and prejudice: A Timeless classic

A Classic Love Story

This month, I decided to revisit one of my all-time favorite stories as a break from all the new books I’ve been reading. I think it’s healthy to return to your favorite stories once and a while. There are so many books out there that are on my list of books to read, and frankly I don’t have enough time, so sometimes I like to revisit the stories I love to let my mind take a break. This is one of those stories. I have read it enough times to know what happens by…

It's What's Underneath

Most people will deny this, but looks actually have a lot to do with how we interact with people. It's a superficial thing, but how you look normally does say something about who you are. For Kyle Kingsbury looks and social status are all that matters. When a witch turns him into a beast, literally, and tells him he has 2 years to find somebody…

One Shot, One Kill

One Shot, One Kill

Cam Parker





            Sweat drips from your hairline to the tip of your nose. Your soul gripped by the air, the aroma, the soldier at the opposite end of your scope breathing down your neck. It's all you right now. Your Mom back home has no idea. Her little boy could get his head split in two, and she's doing the dishes. Screw…

The Reading Chronicles of Adam Serena: Touching Spirit Bear


Stumbling around my bookshelf to find a book for class, I found one of my brother's books from his younger years Touching Spirit Bear, by Ben Mikaelsen.  I decided to dive into the book during Mr. G Andersons "swagtastic" third period English class. I thought the book was really interesting because I…

Movie better than the Book?!?!

     So this month for my reading blog I readThe Fellowship of the Ringby J.R.R. Tolkien. I had readThe Hobbit, the first book in this series, a month or two ago so I decided to keep going. As I read the book I noticed something different about this one in comparison to the other one. I found myself thinking throughout the book, " Boy... did he really have to say that?" Now don't get me wrong, I love this beautiful and epic fantasy world that Tolkien was kind enough to grace our world with,…

The Last Shot

                For the month of January I read the book Last Shot  by John Feinstein. Feinstein is one of my favorite authors mainly because we share the same passion for sports and he makes sports interesting with a twist of mystery thrown into big sporting events like March Madness, U.S Open, and the Superbowl. He writes about fictional teams and fictional players being mixed up in mysteries…

Patrick's Still Writing VI: The Serious One

I really don't want to write this. Trust me, I am holding back big time on the messed-up-dometer. I am referring, of course, to the book I read for a very long time,  Columbine. If you have never heard of the Columbine Shootings, I would ask to crawl under the rock you have been living under, and hide there with you. Basically, you have two kids who walk into their high school, Columbine, plant bombs, and then shoot anything that moved (this was in 1999, for those of you who just…

Stranger Danger: Using the Revolver

Imagine that a big, burly stranger walked into your home demanding something that you knew nothing about. Welcome to the life of Sigfried Andersson. During the surprisingly mild month of January, I read a book in which the setting was ironically very cold, and had a lot to do with the plot of the novel.…

New blog post! Maximum Ride!!

Unfortunately, the book that I spent a good deal of time reading was taken back by the library before I could finish. (It was overdue and 8 people had requested it.) And so, I'm going to talk about an oldie, but a goodie! The Maximum Ride series truly is my favorite of all time (so far) because I…
