If I Stay

If I Stay

   If I Stay was a great book so far because the way Mia is facing challenges that she tries to handle. For example her and her family got into a car crash, and after that she finds herself in a place where she has never been before, and she is trying to find out if she is dead or still alive when she suddenly see's her body being shipped to the hospital. Also, Mia soon figures out that she is in a…

Anger Issues

I am currently reading Angry Management by Chris Crutcher. Angry Management is interesting because it is like reading several stories in one book. A teacher in the school, Mr. Nak, has started an anger management group. He invited some of the most troubled kids in the school to his class, and takes notes on them. Coincidently, the kids in that class have a bigger impact on each other's lives than he thought.

World War Z

After finishing my other book, Seal Team 6, I rented another book out from the library-WWZ. It's written by Max Brooks, the author of the Zombie Survivial Guide as well. As the book starts out, you get a story from how it started and numerous stories with different charaters.  As the story goes on, you hear diffrent people's stories, like how a family had to leave quickly because of the zombie outbreak. Although there are no pictures in the book, you still get a feeling of…

Perfect Chemistry

While I was reading this book Perfect Chemistry, I was dreaming about my future boyfriend. I was in deep love with this book and sometimes I was actually dreaming about the scene when Brittany and Alex had kissed. Every sentence in this book makes me want to have a boyfriend like Alex, and I picture myself instead of Brittany and Alex instead of my crush. This book is the first time that I finished in a…

The Da Vinci Code

History can be told incorrectly, at some point in the past, sometimes. Histories are always biased and differ, according to who told the story. People think that the history books are always right and that they always contain facts. Histories are always made and told by people, so they can say it in any way they want, or in any way that they felt, which differs in some people's opinion, since we are all human beings. in the book, The Da Vinci Code, the protagonists, Robert Langdon…

Insurgent: The next big hit

Although I'm not far enough to tell you if Insurgent is a good book or not, I could tell you that it will surely be far greater than the Hunger Games trilogy. In the Divergent series, Veronica makes a world with action, suspense, and a little bit of romance. Although I'm not a huge romance guy the Divergent series a exception. It's not like T…

The Factions

This semester I read the second book in the Divergent series, Insurgent. So far I'd have to say that the second one is my favorite because of the amazing plot twists and the cliff hangers at the end of each chapter. The main character Tris has to go through more problems as she tries to help save her faction and the rest in the country while also trying to figure out the huge secret that everyone is keeping from her. This secret is so big people have died for it! Definitely recommend it to…
