It is our choices that show who we truly are, far more than our abilities.
This is by Dumbledore from Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. Yes, I know he is a fictional character but it is so true. You are not what you have, you are what you do with what you are given. I love this quote, I used it in my autobiography.
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!
we read the books and saw the movies. now lets go back and see them again…
so thank you j.k Rowling.
