Blog post #6 Books for gifts

So one of the books that I thought looked good was The White boy Shuffle, also another book that looked good was City of Clowns. I once got a book for Christmas and I think it was called Huber Hill and The Golden Staff of Cibola and it was a pretty good book but I just didn’t really like it a whole lot. I have never asked anyone for a book for Christmas because I don’t really like reading all that much but I mean if I got a book I would probably read it. since I don’t really get books for Christmas I don’t really read on Christmas so if I were to get a book for Christmas then I’ll probably wait till after to read it. I finished my series like a whole month and a half ago so I haven’t really read much of it since then. If you liked Steelheart then you will probably like my series because its the rest of the series for that book. For the holidays I am probably just going to hang out with my family.

The book before i fall takes place in modern day US but the movie that they filmed was filmed in British Columbia. The story mostly takes place at their school, Ally’s house, Kent’s house and the middle of the highway. So the story takes place on Friday February 12 also known as “cupids day” and the group of friends go to school expecting a normal day and get something totally different. So the first day actually goes pretty normal, they go to school, get all of their flowers, go home and get ready for a party and they have a great time at the party. Except when they go to leave the party they are driving home and get in a car crash and the main character Sam dies, but still wakes up the next day. So the story goes where every day she relives the day she died and she goes around doing whatever she wants because the next day she just wakes up and restarts the same day. The main plot of the book is that she learns from her mistakes each day and gets a little better each day. Some of the things that she does is she goes and steals her parents credit card and buys everything she ever wanted, she goes and gets really drunk and hangs out with her friends all night and she goes and smokes weed with a girl in the bathroom because she doesn’t want to deal with her problems.

Book show and tell #1

So I read the book Unwind by Neal Shusterman, I loved the book because it was very interesting and had a lot of action. I was told about this book by a friend and so I decided to read it. So the main plot of the story is how these kids are running away from the cops and trying not to get unwound and so its kind of a action packed book because they are running from the law the time and so its just fun. I would recommend this book to people that like action and a little bit of suspense because they do almost get caught so that is really suspenseful

Blog post #3: series proposal

I am going to read the Steelheart series by Brandon Sanderson. The reason I chose to read this series is because we are reading the first one for English and so I decided to  read the second and third books. Ive already read the first book and I am half way through the second book and will be done with the last one in probably about a week or so.

Steelhearts Back story

As a kid Steelheart was different from other kids. He had always had a kind of anger that no one could really understand at first.  He had always been a little bit of a bully to other people and treated them like they weren’t as good as him. Part of the reasoning behind him being mean was the fact that when he was really young his father had treated him and his mother poorly and that is all that he had ever known. So as he grew up he grew to be a cruel and merciless person due to the fact that to live with his father that’s the way he had to be. When he got to middle school and high school he did track and was really good at it, he was a track star but no one ever recognized him for the amazing things he had done. All of these things kind of shaped the way he was, all of the rejection and sense of loneliness had caused him to be such a cruel person. When he graduated from high school he went and worked in a factory. He would always tell other people that common people never knew what they were doing and should be under a stricter rule. He felt like since no one had ever really treated him good that there must not be any god people in the world. Then he met Jennifer, a girl that was at his work. He soon realized that there could be good people in the world. Steelheart and Jennifer started falling in love, and as they did Steelheart started to become a better person. Steelheart had become so madly in love with Jennifer that he decided to ask her to marry him, she said yes and they started planning for their wedding. As they were in the process of planning their wedding there was an attack on the building that Jennifer worked in and she was killed in the fight. Steelheart was distraught, the only person he had ever loved and felt love from had just been killed. So from then on his anger regrew and he went back to the angry and mean person he had been. So out of anger towards all of the people that had not treated him like he wasn’t important he grew a  burning passion for revenge. So when he was older he found his powers and realized that with his new power he could bring all of the people that treated him unfairly “the punishment they deserved”  

My life story

Hello, my name is Brecken Wiltbank. I first learned to read when I was in kindergarten, when I first started reading my favorite book was green eggs and ham. I really like to read in my room laying on my bed because if I get tired then I can just take a nap. I really like to read fiction books and also adventure books. When I am reading I can only read one book at a time because I just cant focus on more than one book. One of my favorite books is The Fault In Our Stars and I really like it because it is just a really well written book.
