Hannah Kuhl's Summer Reading

     Our lives are formed around relationships. We have relationships with friends, family, teachers, peers, neighbors, and the government, amongst others. The three books that I read for my summer reading seemed to highlight different points of relationships. These books are Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher, Look Me in the Eye:My Life With Asperger's by John Elder Robinson, and Every Man Dies Alone by Hans Fallada.


     Every action that we make,…

The Summer Reading Blog of Sam Chung

During the summer, I read the books Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment by James Patterson, The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan, and The House of the Scorpion by Nancy Farmer. Each of these books had differences in the writing style and content. The authors are all outstanding writers that helped me go more in depth with books. This summer has helped me clarify what kind of books I’m interested in. Here are my reactions to each of these…

Sean's Summer Chillin Books

  Summer reading is a time of dreading for a lot of students at Fremd High School. However, I think this year students were actually interested in their books due to the fact students could actually pick their own books. I can only speak on my behalf, but this year was the first year I have enjoyed reading over the summer. The books I read were Catching Fire, Mockingjay, and The Blind…

Tyler Raap's Somewhat Super Spectacular Summer Reading Experience.

The first book I read this summer was Cujo, by Stephen King. Although this book was a little slow and lengthy in some parts, I overall had a good time reading it. Stephen King uses a good amount of dramatic irony to make the book darker and much more tragic. Another realization I had was that bad things can happen to anyone. This was discovered by the son, Tad, dying by asphyxiation from an asthma attack in the car while Cujo was being killed by Tad's mother. I also felt that since…

Summer Reading Had Me a Blast... ♫

Introduction ☺

    As a freshman, I was a member of the English 102 crowd. I remember dreading summer reading. There was a limited number of books that were available for us to read. Sure, it was only one book to read, so naturally I scoffed when I realized that summer reading for English 208 required each student to read three books. I changed my opinions rather quickly,…

Scott's Summer Reading Books

The three books that I read over the summer were The Red Badge of CourageAll Things Bright and Beautiful (the 2nd book in the All Creatures Great and Small series), and The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. All of these being great books, it was hard for me to choose which one…

Ali's Summer Reading Blog

Intro:  Summer is all about the pool and having fun with your friends.  And of course the mandatory summer reading.  I thought, like last year, we would get a list of 10 books and have to pick one and then read it.  This summer, though, was a pleasant surprise.  We got to pick 3 books we wanted to read.  I was really excited about this.  I read these three fantastic books, Mercy By Jodi…

Meredith's Summer Reading Blog!

               At the end of the last school year, I hurried through the library to pick out a new independent reading book for that day. I knew I had to pick out a novel quickly, so I just scanned the shelves. I’m that ‘Judge a Book by Its Cover’ person, so when I saw a book with hot pink binding and a teen tanning on the cover, I figured it would have to do. That book was…

katie's fab summer reading.

            The three books I read for summer reading were If I Stay by Gayle Forman, Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles, and Flipped by Wendelin Van Draanen.  I enjoyed them all and I’m glad I picked them.

            The first book, If I Stay, was about a girl named Mia who got into a serious car accident with her family, and is put into a coma.  The story follows her as a “ghost”, watching herself in the hospital, and all the people who come and visit…

Mia's Summer Reading Blog (:

Once upon a time, I had to read three books for summer reading. Luckily, I personally love a good book more than just about anything, thats one reason I am an English nerd. The most important thing to me, in a novel, is connecting with the characters. Overall, the books I read this summer did not disappoint. The books I read were Matched by Ally Condie, If I Stay by Gayle Forman, and Someone Like You by Sarah Dessen. These three books are all very different, but…

My Summer Reading Books

            Summer reading, two words that usually is followed a long groan from me. The two words separately are two words that are loved by me. Reading is an activity that I enjoy greatly, but summer reading is usually something else entirely. Summer reading in my…

Changing the World One Book at a Time

     Well I usually shut myself in during the summer, trying to avoid the typical sunburn, so reading over the summer isn't exactly the newest thing in my life. I read Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi, The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma by Trenton Lee Stewart, and Wake by Lisa Mcmann. I loved each for their own reasons…

Mike's Magnificent Novels

For my summer reading books, I decided to read Evil Star by Anthony Horowitz, Necropolis by Anthony Horowitz and Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. I really enjoyed reading all three of these books and both authors kept me flipping the pages to read more. The two books by Anthony Horowitz are part of a series called The Gatekeepers…

Shannon Bowman's Summer Reading Blog!


Last year, just weeks away from summer, I was informed that we were going to be required to read three books over summer break. I was immediately annoyed at the fact that we had to continue school work in the summer, but then I was told that we could choose our three books! Now I could actually enjoy reading for a school assignment! The three books I ended up choosing were The Miles Between by Mary E. Pearson, Dirty Little Secrets by C.J. Omololu, and The Red…

Life, Love and Hardship

Most of our lives are filled with experiences that challenge us and allow us to connect with our loved ones.  This summer, I read three books that openned my eyes to other people's hardships, and how they dealt with those challenges with the support of family and friends.  Although one book, The Help, far outweighed the other two books in depth and realism, they all opened my eyes to people's hardships when faced with discrimination. The Help, focused on how the blacks were…

Sarah Bounab's Summer Reads

      Hey everybody! So over the summer I read the books Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult, Remember Me by Sophie Kinsella, and Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane.

      Change of Heart by Jodi Picoult was so emotionally gripping! It’s about how Shane Bourne is convicted of double-homicide and is sentenced to the death penalty by…

My Summer Reading Blog

This summer I read three very entertaining books which were all alike in many ways and all would be classified under the science fiction genre.  In fact, the first two books I read this summer are in the same series but all three books were mostly related by the plot.  In all three books the main character wants to find someone or something and in all three books this same character will do anything to get it.  By weird coincidence, all three books also had Earth…

The three stories that I read were really good stories that I would recommend to anybody. The three books were The Great Wide Sea by M.H. Herlong, Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card, and Chinese Handcuffs by Chris Crutcher. The three of these books were really good and they made me want to never put them down.…
