I chose The Maze Runner by James Dashner. I chose it because someone recommended it to me. It seemed like a good book though I think it is not going to be good. I’ve watched the movie and it was pretty bad though they say that the book is always better then the movie so that’s what I’m hoping it’s for. My sister says it was more boring then the book and I usually like the books my sister likes so maybe this will be like that.

The reading level is for young adults because it starts around the age of 14. I know because it says so on amazon. My main character is 15 and is now living with these random hobo kids that also double as farmers and some other jobs. It starts out with a mystery and a question which indicates that it is a young adult fiction.

He’s a new york times best seller. He also received the Whitney Award for the Best Youth Fiction. It got on the Bestsellers list. It has been made into a movie and was nominated for an award. It is very popular in Utah. It’s special because it has a lot of action and story.

My main character is Thomas. He asks way too many questions and is too curious. He saves some people and he wants to be a runner and figure out the maze. He is not as strong as the others but still smart. He can get himself out of many situations. and he is a natural born leader

Self Evaluation

My reading index score 1257. It shows a pretty good representation of my reading. I read a crazy amount and it shows the amount I read because of my score. I have improved a lot since the last time we took this test. I absolutely love reading it is one my favorite hobbies. I feel happy about my score because it is pretty high and shows the level I’m on right now. The test was pretty easy though some of the words were kinda weird but I figured them out pretty quickly.

My book last term was Illusion. It was about a kid who gets sent to another universe. It was pretty good overall but some parts were really boring. For the book report I did the bag thing like everyone else but I didn’t color my title page so that’s probably why I lost so many points on that. In my book I liked the plot and the characters. I wish I had been there when we did the summary because I didn’t know anything about what to do with it so I just kinda guessed and I lost a lot of points on it. I also would have changed the title page a little bit and colored it to look better and more realistic.

My plan for 4th term is to read even more then I did this term. The book I’m going to read is Nobody. It’s about people who have the unnatural ability to be nothing as in they have no energy in their bodies yet they still live and nobody sees or cares about them. I didn’t make the choice on the last book report because I didn’t see any books that I would like to read. This term is going to be one of the longest terms because were finally going to be able to get out of school at the end of it.

Personal adventure

My normal day at my house is normally spent reading or going on Tv. Every day when I come home I usually grab something to eat then instantly I go to the Tv. I go online on my Xbox and see who can play any video games with me. Afterwards, I usually do my homework. My homework takes normally 1 hour to complete and maybe more if I do not feel up to it. After that, I usually go to Netflix and watch any show that seems interesting or funny. Finally, I start to get ready for the next day. Once I am done then I go to bed and start the entire process over again.

I feel like I don’t read as much as I should. I feel like I’m not giving enough time of my day to reading. If I spent more time reading then I would read at least 1 book and a half every day. My time can be used for more important things than Xbox. I want to be the fastest reader I can possibly be. The books transport me to the world the characters are in and make me feel like I understand them and feel what they are feeling. People tell me I am really fast but in my mind, I am slower then what I used to be.

My laziness is stopping me from completing this goal. In my mind, I want to do it but it’s easier said than done. I don’t usually like to break away from my routine. If I could do this then I would be really fast. My routine is what has kept me from doing things that I don’t like to do. But I want to break away from it very badly. I will miss my routine but it will be worth it in the long run. My mind will most likely try to stop me but I will retaliate.

My mentors for this story/blog would be My sister Diana, and My English teacher Mrs. Phippen. They are the fastest readers I know. My sister reads every day in her spare time. Mrs. Phippen, I don’t normally see read but she can read a page in like 10 seconds. Phippen is the only one who has read more pages than me this school year. She is an abnormal reader and an amazing teacher. Diana is an amazing reader too, she is the top reader in her class to at the high school. I will follow the examples of Mrs.Phippen and Diana to become a better reader.

Personal Quest

My parents told me not to get Christmas gifts for my friends last year. But I felt that my friends deserved the gifts because they have been so good to me that year. So I ignored them and went to get the gifts and I was right to do so. They were grateful to me for getting the gifts and I knew they were good friends. They told me that they would get gifts for me too. But I declined because truthfully I don’t like gifts. I’d rather give gifts and see them happy. They said they would do it anyway but they forgot and I’m really happy that they did. I did not deserve gifts that Christmas but they did and no one would have done it so I took it upon myself to give it to them. I love my friends because they are amazing and kind. I gave it to them one day while they were all gone and left it by their doors. They almost thought that it was from a secret admirer or something but then they read the label and laughed and were happy. I’m happy I did this for them and hope they were happy that Christmas.

When I was younger I had a moment which changed my life. It was an ordinary day in the 2nd grade at Grovecrest or so and I was just minding my own business when suddenly I heard a voice that said “Wanna play tag.” I turned around and looked who it was and all I saw standing there was a little kid named Kavan. I didn’t know it then but I had just met my best friend in the entire world. I don’t know why I was friends with him that parts a bit fuzzy but from that day forward we never did anything alone. We were inseparable. He had my back and I had his. Later, on in the years I grew apart from him and thought he was too weird to be around. But then I had a moment of clarity and was friends with him again. He has always been there for me and most of the time I feel like I don’t deserve him. This may seem like a love story to some people but it isn’t to those people who find weird stuff in everything. I am so happy that he is my friend. I can’t say that he feels the same way but I hope we stay friends forever.

Term 3 Blogging

What I did over the break was sit around and watch TV. It was really quiet in my house except for the TV screen. We didn’t go out of town we just stayed home. We didn’t go anywhere because we didn’t have anywhere to go to and we felt content to just stay home and relax. My family started watching the new star trek TV show. I got Christmas gifts for all of my family and all of my close friends.

The book I chose for the book report is Illusion by Sherrilyn Kenyon. I chose this book because I was reading the series and I got to this book and it seemed interesting so I’m now using it. The author of the book is Sherrilyn Kenyon. This is a 7th grade reading level. It is a teen and young adult genre.

One goal I have this year is to read a lot more then what I am reading now. I am very slow from what I used to be. I don’t usually make time for reading so now I want to read more. Reading is what keeps me from going insane and I haven’t been reading that much. My parents always tell us to read more and now they will probably be happy to see me reading.

I am the evil of the world

I am the dead and the sadness

My Mother is both bad and good

My Father the planner and the doer

I love the sun and the forest and running through the night

I feel Death and sadness along with guilt

Everlasting guilt

My fear is the departure of my parents in the night and of my death in the winter night

The Icy cold I feel inside of me

I have discovered the bells of death

Of how it feels to lose everything dear to me

I wanted to see the world and the happiness in people

I live in the house that is like Hell

I liked the poem ME. I liked this poem because of how it compares with nature. The words they use are so amazing and interesting. I really feel like I connect with what their saying. Their metaphors are really good. This poem is definitely more superior to the others.

This poem is like me because I view myself as a person that I won’t change ever. I am the tree that won’t move no matter what. This poem isn’t like my theme song paper at all. My paper was more dark and complex than this. It didn’t feel as heavy as this but it was still good.

 This represents me because I view death as a part of me because of my losses I have had. It is the sad part of me that I wish I didn’t have.

End of Term

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

This term, when I read After the End, I really loved this book because of all of it’s action and excitement. It took me a week to finish this book because I was reading other books that had my attention. I didn’t feel rushed at all I had full confidence of finishing my book easily. I had plenty of time to finish my book and I was very comfortable with my speed. I couldn’t make this any easier for myself. I would probably finish the book first before reading others next term.

Writing was pretty hard for me. I really couldn’t seem to get the hang of writing. It was hard because I didn’t really understand the instructions that well. I wish I had listened more to the instructions instead of reading. But overall I did pretty good on the blog posts.

I liked how I did a review about my book. I wish I was a bit more prepared about the book report because I wasn’t really prepared. I would change my entire book report because the critique review was a bit hard and complicated. I thought it would be easy but then it looked like it was very complicated. I would do the five objects because it seemed easy and fun.

I would keep my reading habits the same if I started the term over again. But I would change my listening because it was kinda hard to do my blog posts because I was reading during them. I feel term 1 was a very good term for me because of my grades and my friends. I feel a bit sad that it is coming to an end but I am excited for the new term. This was a very good term.

Symbol and Theme

I am reading After the End. Now the important item is Artmis. Artmis is a drug that will prolong the human life for hundreds of years. Miles’s father wants this drug to sell to the public. While Juneau’s mentor wants to keep it out of they’re hands. Juneau’s mentor is the one who made the drug by lying to her tribe and using them as guinea pigs. Juneau is the only one who has the formula (besides her mentor) and everyone wants it.

The biggest part of my book cover is that Juneau thinks that the world has ended and is a wasteland but it shows her looking at the horizon and she sees a city filled with people. This book was made for both men and women because it talks about things that both men and women would find enjoyable. If, I was to change anything I would change the cover to her being chased across the desert by thugs and Miles’s father. I would do that because it shows pretty much how she and Miles are on the run from them and how hard things are right now. That and it makes it a lot more exciting.

The theme for this book is mostly a chase type of book. But there is also love, friendship, and trial. The author explains these things by how she makes the plot. For example she shows about the love and friendship by showing how Juneau and Miles like each other but don’t know how to be together because they’re both part of different worlds. And the trial and chase is by showing how the people are chasing her and Miles and the way they escape each attempt to apprehend them. She teaches us how you can still love even if you have trials from your past and that you can overcome challenges as long as you believe in yourself.

I am reading after the end by Amy Plum. The main plot is that Juneau is from a tribe in Alaska. She was told that the world ended in 1938. Her tribe was stolen by a business man and his men. While her old mentor is trying to capture her too. Now she is going to New Mexico to save her tribe which she saw in a vision. Now she is with a new friend named Miles and he is helping her save her tribe while learning about her life with the tribe.

The main conflict for this story is that Juneau is trying to save her tribe but she is being chased by dangerous people who are trying to get her for they’re own selfish reason. But she is discovering truths about the world which her tribe has lied about. She has a connection with a mystical force called the Yara which is pretty much Natures soul. Now while she is trying to save her tribe she is being hunted by both Thugs and a Businessman who want her to tell the formula for the drug called Armit. This drug can prolong the human life for hundreds of years and Miles’s father wants it. And then there’s her old mentor who lied to her about the history of the world and he is trying to capture her for reasons unknown.

My favorite part is the part where Juneau finds out about the drug Armit. Miles’s father captures her in Salt Lake City and she talked to him and he told her things that she wished she didn’t hear. He told her that her old mentor (Whit) was actually a scientist who lied to the entire tribe and was using them for an experiment to discover the potential for his new drug. Whit promised to sell the drug to Miles’s father but he never showed up to the meeting about it, and that got Miles’s father mad. So he took the tribe and he tried to kidnap Juneau because he heard she was his apprentice so he figured she must know the formula. But Juneau never did know the formula she thought it was magic that made the tribe live that long. So now she is questioning everything her tribe ever told her.
