All About Me

When I learned to read it was in Kindergarten or maybe even earlier. I like books with great cliffhangers. I like to read when is silent so, I can really focus on a good book. Sometimes I have to read for a book group in class or for my Reading Log but, sometimes when I'm bored I like to reread books that I love. I can't stop a reading a great book until the end of a chapter.

My Favorite Books

  • Eight Keys
  • Out of My Mind
  • Wonder
  • The Westing Game
  • I am Malaya
  • Percy Jackson and the Titan's Curse
  • Percy Jackson and the Last Olympian
  • The One and Only Ivan

I choose Westing Game by: Ellen Raskin because I love mysteries and they have a bunch of great cliffhanger ending chapters that make you want to keep reading. Also, because they have a great plot twist at the end. These 16 heirs only know one thing, the murderer of Sam Westing is one of them.

I choose I am Malaya because it's basic book of Malaya's life and how she became what she is today. It's really sad but, yet inspiring. It's really amazing how this girl stood up for women education and changed the world.

My Daily Blog

I have just recently finished the Westing Game and I'm about to start Courage for Beginners. I have recently purchased this book at the book fair. I got the Westing Game from the library and I enjoyed it very much. I read it because this was my book for literature circles which we did in reading. I would recommend it to anyone who likes mysteries because the book always has you guessing until the end. I dislike how it kept changing points of view or flipping scenes with knowing. I like that it wasn't too long but, long enough to be a good book.

Like, Try, Why!

Book Recommendation Sites

I choose these websites because actual readers vote on them and give reviews about the book so, you can get a good idea of what books are popular. Also, it gives background information about the author and a summary of the book.
