More than they bargained for.

   For this month I read Fable: The Balverine Order. For the fans of the popular Fable franchise on the Xbox, this is a highly recommended read. It takes place after the third game and even hints at your character from the game. The books main characters are Thomas and James, lifelong best friends. The boys decide to go searching for balverines in the far East, for whatever reason Thomas has the need to. Being unable to allow his friend to go alone, James demands to accompany…

A River Runs Through It

A River Runs Through it

 

The most recent book that I read was A River Runs Through It by Norman Macclean. While frantically running out the door before school, suddenly remembering that I needed to grab a book for silent reading, and grabbing off of my family room shelf, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. As it turns…

December Blogging: Beauty Queens

Earlier this month I finished the novel Beauty Queens by the ever so sarcastic Libba Bray. I had heard of it at the library book talk and while being in a need of a new book I grabbed it. I later found out that it was a extremely well received book, rated very highly. Everyone, including our librarian had only good things to say about the book, and I can happily agree with their opinion.…

Tiger's Voyage finds its way to me.

Love. Heartbreak. Adventure. And a curse. Tiger’s Voyage is all of that and more. This book is part of a series which I recently started reading. This series is better than Twilight or any other series I have read except for the Vampire Academy series.…

Yo ho, Yo ho

            “Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate’s life for me.” The pirates of Eurastia probably aren’t exactly like the ones in The Pirates of the Caribbean, but they’re the crew of a legendary ship. That’s pretty cool in my opinion!

            I…

December:The Titan's Curse

For my December monthly book I read The Titan’s Curse by Rick Riordan. This book is the third in the Percy Jackson series and the series has just gotten a whole lot more interesting. I have read all of the previous books and blogged about them so if you want to get a main idea of what the series is…

My December Book: Divergent

Ok, so I know there have been a bunch of posts about this book and most of you seeing this are probably groaning like "Oh geez, another one?" and sorry about that.  I really wouldn't have done my blog on this book if it wasn't so good.  I promise.  I had seen Divergent by Veronica…

Leverage: Speaking out against abuse!

Ah, winter break. A time for rejoicing, sleeping in late, and enjoying a quality read during the tranquil morning hours of December. The book I was entreated to was called Leverage by Joshua C. Cohen. When my mother first purchased the novel for me at Borders, I thought the story would revolve around the use of steroids or muscle supplements because the cover shows a picture of an extremely veiny forearm.…

Two sides of one story: Not very upbeat books

"Using a saw to kill someone makes more sense than using a gun to hammer nails. That's how my dad built my treehouse; that's how he cleaned it too."- Hank Hill



Hello, person.

This blogpost is about two books I read this month, but they have a lot to do with each other, so don’t start reading with the attitude that you’ll have to hear about two completely unrelated topics.

 

First, I’d like to give you some interesting…

This is a blog post about something I don't want people to read. It's just not a good book.

The name of the book I chose to read was Taken, by Edward Bloor. I found this book in the Fremd library because I did not have a book to read for class. I only had a few minutes, so I saw it, grabbed it, and got out. The book did look genuinely interesting, but as it is said- "Don't judge a book by its cover!" In this case, that rings true. Do not be deceived into thinking that this cover-…

Full Dark, No Stars (December Book Blog)

Stephen King is known for writing horror books. While this book consisted of horrific short stories, it was not a horror. All four of these stories were dark, and disturbing. Not uncommon for Stephen King. But they were different. These stories made you think. How far am I willing to go to get what I…

Seriously...I’m Kidding

 

               

 

                I’m not kidding, this is the title of the book! With two days left before the due date of this blog, I went to the library with my mom and luckily they had Ellen Degeneres’ new book Seriously…I’m Kidding.  Two days was just enough time to finish this book!  I’ve been wanting to read it ever since she announced on her show that it was coming out.  I watch her show pretty…

Harry Potter Time! (December Book Blog)



 

Another month, another book blog. And seeing that I was able to finish 3 books this month, I had the hardest time choosing which to write about; the 3 books were Harry Potter 3-5. But in the end, I decided to write about my…

The Reading Chronicles of Adam Serena: Michael Jordan

Over the long, relaxing break from school, I heard some fantastic news.  The NBA (National Basketball Association) lockout was over, and actual games would start on Christmas.   Excited from this news, I ran to library to grab a biography on one of the greatest players to ever play basketball, Michael Jordan.  I stumbled upon Playing for Keeps: Michael Jordan and the World he Made.  I was just amazed by this multimillionaire icon.  He was the most determined person that I have ever…

My December Read: Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson

    

     Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson may be one of my favorite books I have yet to read! I enjoyed it so much mainly because I’m really not into those books where the plots are always so happy and everything is perfect. I like to read about real life situations and struggles…
