It’s the beginning of summer and I have three books that I’m required to read for school. The Outsiders, and two books from their reading list. I chose I Hadn’t Meant to Tell You This and Out of My Mind. I desperately wanted to read The Hunger Games series but I figured I had no chance to read them. Why? Because Last year I read one out of three books I had to read for school. Putting the thought of The Hunger Games aside, I made the goal to finish my three books. A totally of about 550 pages. When I began The Outsiders and realized I enjoyed it. It had shown a new light on reading for me and I finished it in a week. Mind blown, I began my next book and boom, three days later it was done. Then the third (only being 150 pages long) I finished in like 6 hours! By July first I had finished all my summer reading! The next day the perfect opportunity arrived. I was going up to Walton for 6 days! This was perfect. I could read the first Hunger Games then when we came back I could read the next. Right? There was no way I could finish the first one in less than 6 days right? How wrong was I! In 24-hours, I was done. I was amazed and mad. Stuck out there for another 5 days with the next book…
Now I have finished all my summer reading, The Hunger Games series and the first three Harry Potter books! These are all great reads! Wish me luck in my future reads! Any recommendations? Let me know!
This post is very different from anything I have posted in the past. It is sort of book review/descriptions. This is something I have wanted to try for a while now. So tell me what you think and if you think I should do more reviews of books I’ve read. While you read this I would like you to keep in mind that these are my thoughts and you may have different ones.
I Hadn’t Meant to Tell You This, by Jacqueline Woodson, is about two unlikely friends with one thing in common, their mothers both died. Marie a cool girl and Lena a new kid feel drawn to each other for this reason. They soon become great friends. As they begin to confide in each other Marie learns a secret of Lena’s. So Marie is faced with a hard question. Should she tell someone or follow Lena’s wish and keep it a secret? Find out what she decides, in I hadn’t Meant to Tell You This.
I read I Hadn’t Meant to Tell You This, for one of my summer reading books. I read it in less than a day. It is short and a fast read. Parts interested me but it wasn’t my favorite book. There wasn’t much that really pulled me in and kept my interest. Jacqueline Woodson, did a good job writing it but the story didn’t interest me. It would not be one I would recommend for any one younger than me (12). The book discussed some mature subjects. But over all I would give it like a 6 out of 10.
yes “tv is educational” but every once in a while it’s nice to read a book! so here are some good books that me or my mom or my dad or my brother have read (but not all).
thanks for coming!!
