Over View (Back of the book)

Passion. Fate. Loyalty.

Would you risk it all to change your destiny?

The last thing Kelsey Hayes thought she’d be doing this summer was trying to break a 300-year-old Indian Curse. With a mysterious white tiger named Ren. Halfway around the world.

But that’s exactly what happened.

Face-to-face with dark forces, spellbinding magic, and mystical worlds where nothing is what it seems, Kelsey risks everything to piece together an ancient prophecy that could break the curse forever.

Plot

The main event of the book is that Kelsey goes through an adventure to solve a Indian mystery! She faces many obstacles and since this is the first volume in the series it’s not really completed. So you have to read to find out if she solves it or if something else happens?

Characters

The Characters of this book are: Kelsey Hayes, Ren, Kishan, Durga, Damon, Yesubai, Anik Kadam, Nilima Mehta, Mr. Kadam, Mr. Davis.

Conclusion

I like this book because it is very adventurous and it takes you on an great adventure with Kelsey and it is very well written. I don’t really dislike this book, it is good overrall. Plus this is a series so it’s exciting to see what will happen next! 😉

How to make decisions?

Hello Guys! So today in my language arts class, we read the book The lady or The Tiger and we are assigned to write about how we make decisions? So that is exactly what I am going to do!

How do you make Decisions? How do you know it’s the right decision to make?

These two questions may seem a little stressful but we have to ask ourselves these questions to judge if we have to make better decisions or if the decisions we’re making is affected our lives in a good way!
We make decisions everyday, whether it’s a really easy one or one that you have to really think about. The best way I have made big decisions is to first look at it from as many perspectives as possible and then decide a suitable action for me to make. Well for me it’s around the time where I have to apply for High schools and trust me it’s hard to decide which one you want to go in? But most importantly I decide on the one that Provides what I need to learn in order to be successful in the career I chose!
Decisions are not easy to make and sometimes it can be very stressful but always think about if you make one decision, how it is going to Affect and then Judge in order to make that decision!

Soo, I will leave you guys to that and I hope that if you have to make a stressful decision that you take your time in deciding and hope it is the best decision possible to make! With that said I will be going now.
Hope you guys enjoyed this post and See Ya Next time👋

Over View (Back of the book :))
A beautiful scarf, passed down through the generations, connects two women who learn that the weight of the world is made bearable by the love we give away….
September 1911. On Ellis Island in New York Harbor, nurse Clara Wood cannot face returning to Manhattan, where the man she loved fell to his death in the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire. Then, while caring for a fevered immigrant whose own loss mirrors hers, she becomes intrigued by a name embroidered onto the scarf he carries… and finds herself caught in a dilemma that compels her to confront the truth about the assumptions she’s made. Will what she learns devestate her or free her?
September 2011. On Manhattan’s Upper West Side, widow Taryn Michaels has convinced herself that she is living fully, working in a charming specialty fabric store and raising her daughter alone. Then a long-lost photograph appears in a national magazine, and she is forced to relive the terrible day her husband died in the collapse of the World Trade Towers…..the same day a stranger reached out and saved her. Will a chance reconnection and a century-old scarf open Taryn’s eye to the larger forces at work in her life?

Favorite Quotes
1. “Everything beautiful has a story it wants to tell”
2. “Heard melodies are sweet, but those unheard are sweeter”
3. “There were a thousand words for dreams realized and only one common whimper for hopes interrupted”
4. “It should always make up happy to say that loving someone and being loved by someone is worth whatever price paid”
5. “Kindness is always motivated by something nobler than just a desire to be kind”
6. “If I had learned anything from this past year, it is that despair is love’s fiercest enemy”
I can go on to a lot more quotes but that would be really long so I am gonna stop here! Hehe!

My opinions
I think that this book is very well written and the author is very talented. It is also very inspirational! The story is phenomenal! This book makes you curious to learn about early 20th century Manhattan. This book has its kind of dark side when it starts asking questions but overall I enjoyed reading this book!

Author: Bethany Wiggins.

Genre: Science fiction, Young adult

Why I like this book?

  • The characters are unique.
  • The plot is good.
  • This book has a part 1 😉
  • The ending is AMAZING!

Book Summary (Back of the book)

THERE IS NO “PERFECT” CURE

Jacqui still remembers what it was like before the honeybee virus destroyed her world. Before children turned into beasts and men desperate for power became raiders.  Before she had to disguise herself as a boy. And before her brother, Dean, left and never came back.

Jacqui asks Fiona and Jonah Tarsis to help find Dean, since he disappeared while leading their mother to safety. They immediately agree and together they all quickly set out—along with Fions’s boyfriend, Bowen—in search of their loved ones. But Jacqui soon discovers that they’ve kept a very dangerous secret from her they have

THE CURE

The cure that could save those infected with the virus. If they can keep it safe.

With their survival hanging in the balance. Jacqui and her friends must restore their families, preserve the cure, and fight for the chance to rebuild their shattered world.

Favorite quotes

  • “Fionan! My baby girl!” she pushes Fo to arm length and studies her. “You’re cured.”
  • “If a single infected dog got loose, it would terrorize the city, preying on anything that moved. It would kill lots of innocent people before it was stopped because the dogs are nearly impossible to kill.”
  • “If its possible for a person to fall in love when they’ve only known someone for a few days……..”
  • “Those aren’t tears”
  • “That’s my point. I can’t tell her walk into that! She will not survive alone!”

There are many more quotes so I am not gonna keep going!

My opinions

I think this book is well written as well as the first one!. The ending of this amazing series is most definately AMAZING!! The romance is so real!. I think Fiona and her mom metting at the end is so nice as well as Jonah telling his mom about his dad. This series should be made into a movie.

THIS IS A MUST BUY!!

Poetry

Hello again peeps!! So for my language arts we are assigned to do a poem based on a place in the outdoors that we enjoy.

So hope you enjoy the poem and get your imaginations ready for this ride!!.

The beauty of the sunshine as it falls in the sand.

The way the waves move makes me smile.

Children playing and splashing water makes me wanna go back to the old times.

Everything falls upon the water and the suns light.

As I lay on the smooth wet sand, it gives the feeling of a good day.

Everyone splashes water, plays, rests on the sand as the sun lays its light upon them.
“Cringes with an awkward face”😁

Sooooo hope you enjoyed this weird peom!!

Thank you so much! Goodbye for now! 👋

Book Review The Sea Monsters

Hello Again!!:) So for my language arts class we are suppose to do a novel requirment for a book of our choice every week and I chose “THE SEA OF MONSTERS”……… So get your seat belts on and let’s roll!…….😁
Hope you enjoy the book review!!

Author: Rick Riordan
Genre: Fantasy Literature, Young adult fiction, Greek mythology.

Introduction
“The sea of Monsters” by Rick Riordan is the second book in the “Percy Jackson and the  Olympians” series. In this book, Percy takes on a quest to save his beloved camp half blood. This book is a tale of good vs Evil as seen from the point of view of Percy. He must not only fight for the camp but the lives of those around him that he cares about. This combines the current world with the world of the Greek mythological gods such as Zeus and Poseidon.

Settings
Camp half blood where Percy goes during the summer to get trained to become a hero.

Summary
Percy Jackson is seen nearing the end of his seventh grade year and although excited about being done with the school, and going to camp half blood for the summer, Percy is concerned about a dream he has regarding his friend Grover. Percy is not sure what the dream really means but ultimately decides he has to focus on school. When Percy arrives at school he and his friend, Tyson tells Percy that the boys that they began to develop into large monsters and attack Percy.Tyson comes to Percy’s rescue and soon Percy’s friend Annabeth  also arrives to help and destroys the monster. Percy, Annabeth, and Tyson leave to go to Camp half blood immediately. When they arrive Percy finds someone has poisoned the magical tree that was created out of Thalia, Zeus’ daughter , was injured. Thalia’s tree protects camp half- blood but since it is weakened the campers are under constant attack from various monsters. When Percy arrives at camp he looks for Tyson and realizes he is a cyclops and he is son of Poseidon making Tyson Percy’s half- brother.

Themes
Good vs Evil is the main focus of the story Percy is the main protagonist in the story and the books point of view comes from the character. His thoughts and emotions are seen. While Percy is young and his flaws it is clear how most heroes should be like. Percy is willing to put himself in danger in order to help the camp and his friends. Although, he is willing to fight with everything he has Percy also shows that he is willing to  go without the praise and glory that goes being a hero.

Quotes
“A magical force called the mist obscures the true appearance of monsters and gods from their vision, so mortals tend to see only what they can understand.”
“As it passed the middle of the hill,where the invisible boundary line should’ve kept it out, it slowed down a little, as if it were struggling against a strong wind; but then it broke through and kept coming”

P.S: By the way, this is a series 🙂

On to the review!



Author: Suzanne Collins

Genre: Science Fiction

Why do I like this book?

  1. The plot is set in the future
  2. The character’s names are unique
  3. the book is beautifully written

Book Summary (Back of the book):

Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieve, happy even. After all, she has returned to her family and her long time friend, Gale. Yet nothing is the way Katniss wishes it to be. Gale holds her at an icy distance. Peeta has turned his back on her completely. And there are whispers of a rebellion against the Capitol – a rebellion that Katniss and Peeta may have helped create.

Much to her shock, Katniss has fueled an unrest she’s afraid she cannot stop. And what scares her even more is that she’s not entirely convinced she should try. As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the district on the Capitol’s cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher then ever if they can’t prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other the consequences will be horrifying.

A perfect snippet for you new readers, plus there’s no spoilers! 🙂

My Opinions:

This book is so unbelievably awesome. This book teaches you about being fearless and to stand up for what’s right. This book also teaches you that sometimes you have to sacrifice yourself to things that you believe in even though it will hurt you or people who love you will get hurt. Books like this will never be forgotten because its that special.
