I chose the book Michael Vey for my book of this term. It’s a number 1 New York Times Best Seller.

It is targeted for ages 12 and up and the grade level is 7-9.

I chose this book, because when I was younger I wanted to read it so me and my dad bought the book, but we bought number 6 on accident. When I saw it on Mrs Phippens shelf I got excited.

My main character is Michael Vey who started book one as a 14 year old book.


Call to personal adventure

By | Uncategorized | One Comment

My ordinary world is pretty simple. I wake up and I go to school, I come home and I either go to swim lessons or I hangout with some friends. That’s how every day usally goes unless I get sick or something like that.

Traveling calls to me, every time I go somewhere new or even old I feel super happy. I am the type of person who will jump at a chance to go somewhere fun. I  love traveling to different states and country’s, but I also love camping.

Something that I feel like has been stopping me is not being able to drive. There’s a lot of things I want to do, but I can’t because my parents are working or just don’t want to drive me. It gets really frustrating when I think of something fun to do and I can’t just because of that one issue.

My parents are of course a big part of my life and help me make a lot of my choices in life, but also it’s my friends. They help me have fun and they help me figure out what I want to do with my life. If I didn’t have any friends I would be bored all the time. We always think of things we want to do when we are able to drive and in high school.

An experience that has made me feel like more of an adult is, when I went on a cruise to Alaska. When I went their with my cousins and my dad, my dad let us run wherever we want. It made me feel like I was in charge of what I wanted to do. I had passes, so that I could get food whenever I wanted same with fancy drinks. I could go swimming or watch a movie and many more without having to talk to my dad. It was my first taste of adulthood… minus me worrying about money.

The first time I felt like I had to change myself was on New Years. I’m a huge procrastiner, I always put things off and it really catches up to me with school, friends and just taking care of myself. I decided on New Years that my goal would be more motivated. I would try to plan and time things a lot better and just make myself get up. So far, I think I’ve been doing pretty good. It just depends on the day.




After Christmas Review

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

My favorite thing I did over the break was hanging out with my best friend Amber. Amber had to move to  California, but she came to Utah over the break, so we hung out most off the break. We went ice skating with a couple of my friends to and then we went to the movie with some of hers. We saw Pitch Perfect three, but we didn’t even really watch it, because, we were running all over the movie theater.

I am reading Uglies by Scott Westerfeld , I chose my book, because I had no idea what to read, but I sit right by the white board with a bunch of books and I saw it. I read the back summary and it looked interesting to me. The reading level was grade 7- 9th. I got that information from Amazon.

My new year resolution is to get better at swimming. I want to be on the swim team, but I have kinda been slacking about going to my swimming practice and really trying my best. Hopefully my new goal with motivate me to work as hard as possible.



“me” Poetry writing.

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

My favorite poem out of all of the examples were the first one titled “Me” I think it spoke to me more than the other one’s I went and read through. I liked how I could relate to some of the lines, I also liked the rhyming in it. I think it wasn’t like it rhymed every sentence that it had a specific flow and that made me like reading it. Sometimes I catch myself wishing I acted or looked different, but then I remember i’m me. Everything about me is well me and that’s a pretty amazing thing.

End of term blog post

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

This term, when I read, I took about 2 weeks to finish my first book Cinder. I didn’t feel rushed at all. Every night before I went to bed I read 5-10 pages as apart of my homework, but it didn’t feel like homework because I love reading and I loved the book I chose. I ended up finishing three of the books in the series and I felt very proud of myself for being so on top of my reading. I wouldn’t change anything for next term rather than maybe taking more time on my blog post, but nothing about my reading.

The easy thing about blog posts in that I could take them home easily and I could write them pretty fast, so that was nice and efficient. The hardest thing for me to grasp was that I had to hit publish for it to actually turn it,  but I think I got it down now. Now it’s all okay. I don’t wish anything was different I think it’s a good way of doing things.

I liked that my book report was nice and had a nice background The thing I wish I did different with my book report is just prepare more for the questions. Rehearse what I say more before I had to present. Like I said if I got to go again I would just prepare better.

Character Blog post

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The main character in my book is Cinder which is the name of the book. Her side kick in the first book has to be IKO which is a robot with a personality chip, but in the second one Cinders side kick is Carswell who she escaped from prison with and running from the queen. The other main character is Scarlet which is the name of the second book and her main side kick is Wolf who is helping her find her grandma. Eventually all of the characters meet up in the second book. The two other main characters are Queen Lavana and the prince who help move the story along.

The static character in these book I would say Iko and Casrswell. Because IKO is a robot so her personality chip doesn’t allow her to really turn against Cinder and shes just a very loyal robot. Carswell is just always the same. Will jump in front of a bullet for Cinder and hes just always making jokes and being sarcastic.

The nemesis in this book is for sure Queen Lavana, because she is the one that is declaring war on Earth, but not only that she is the one trying to kill Cinder and without her the book would have no meaning and be boring. So far there hasn’t been anything where she has been misunderstood. She just is really evil and has a cold heart.



Symbols and themes

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The most important object in my book Cinder would be her foot, but it’s not an normal human foot it’s a cyborg foot. Cinder is based off of the classic Cinderella, but totally re done in a new setting and story line. So for it to go off of Cinderella it had to have one thing in common and in the Disney version, Cinderella lost her shoe at a ball and that was the big object of the story. In this case Cinder lost her foot at a ball too. Not only that, but in the book it is always talking about her foot and the size and all of that kind of stuff. As you can see, the main object of the story is Cinders foot.

I really enjoy my books front cover, I think it fits my book perfectly. It is a human leg in a red high heel but you can see through it that instead of bone it’s a robot foot, because she’s cyborg aka a robot. And it makes sense from the first paragraph that I wrote why it would be a foot.

The theme of my book would be not to give up. “It’s okay to fail, but it’s not okay to not try.” Cinder had so many reasons to give up. Everything was going against her and she didn’t really have anyone to lean on for support except her robot friend  IKO, but her step mother took her apart so she pretty much died. But no matter how hard it got and when everything was going wrong she thought it through and found a way to figure out a solution and keep pushing on.


Book Setting

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The setting of my book Cinder is held in New Beijing, Which is fiction in the book. I looked it up seeing what country it was in and all that came up was about the book and there was a resturant that shared the same name. Im guessing that its in China becuase, that sounds like a chineese word. Also, the resturant sold Chineese food.

In the beginning of Cinder, (New Beijing) It was hot. How I know was becuase she had air conditioning on in her little shop and everyone was out running around the town. She, also  mentioned that it was sunny and nobody were wearing coats.

In the second book it is mostly held on the moon which  doesnt have a climate so she really doesn’t mention it very often. But its usally dark and only lit up by the moons reflected light and the lunars things.

The book doesnt talk about its setting too often, mainly the action which I like, becuase I would rather know what going on then where its going on. But, both is better so Cinder did a good job

My book Cinder and the second one Scarlet has a bunch of different things happening. There’s a mix of Man vs Man, Man vs Himself, Man vs Technology, Man vs Supernatural and Man vs Society. Because Cinder is going against the queen who has supernatural powers, but not only her shes going against the prince and all of society. There are also robots that are out looking for her. Not to mention she doesn’t believe in herself

There is defiantly pursuit in my book, because everyone is chasing everyone. For example, Cinder is tracking down the doctor so they can over take the queen, but also the Queen is chasing after Cinder. Not only that, but the king and all of his robots are looking for her to. This book is pretty much a action book.

In the book Cinder and the second one Scarlet has a lot of Revenge in it. Scarlet wants revenge on who ever took her grandma and tortured her dad and that is all that is driving her through her book. Cinder wants revenge on the queen for trying to kill her when she was young, but so does the queen for coming back and threatening her thrown.
