You’ve Got a Friend in Rudy

Ok rudy is the WORST HUMAN BEING. I can’t see what ANY of you guys are talking about when you say he’s cute this kid asks for a kiss NOT ONLY THAT HE CALLS LIESEL A F I L T H Y  P I G WHEN ASKING. WHY SHOULD WE LIKE THIS BRAT?!?! He does everything he does for a kiss from Liesel and she keeps rejecting him which is GOOD! WHEN RUDY DIES I WILL GIVE 0 FLYING FRENCH FRIES! THIS KID DESERVES TO DIE (in the book). I really don’t like this character at all and I will be happy to see him kicked off the roster for the remainder of the book.

 

 

Book Review 2.1

What I Read

Title: Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer

Author: Rick Riordan

Genre: Young adult fiction

# of Pages: 513

Rating: 9.5/10

How it starts

The main character is Magnus Chase. Magnus Chase is a homeless 17 year old kid who has had very unfortunate things happen to him. He doesn’t want anything yet, but when his two best friends tell him that people are coming after him he wants safety. The setting is Boston Texas (or Boston Mass) and it’s snowing. Magnus is under a bridge when his friends tell him he’s going to die.

How it gets complicated

When Magnus goes to his uncles house for safety he finds his uncle! The exact person he did NOT want to see. As Magnus and his uncle, Randolph, are talking they hear a loud explosion. Randolph knows what it is, but Magnus is like whatever bro. Something intense happens that I can’t spoil and an evil god is summoned to where they are and fights Magnus to the death! As he’s fighting he sees this girl on a horse and then-

What I liked

I like how Magnus isn’t like the typical “I neEd tO sAvE thE daY!!!1!!11!!1” he’s more of like an actual teenager who makes funny jokes and isn’t always serious. I also like how the book goes from an Action moment to a Recap to Build Up and then action again. That’s how the whole book goes and I LOVE IT!!1!1111!!1!

What I disliked

It takes a long time for action to come back 🙂

Recommendation

Teenagers / Young adults or whatever.

A Little Light in the Darkness

I would restate the prompt but I really don’t care we all know what it is so I’ll just answer the question. My response to pretty much everything is to either sit in my bath tub or sleep. I love sleeping because I really soft blanket and soft covers so yeah. If my bathtub is too inconvenient like it usually is then I’ll go sit in my hot tub outside. If it’s like raining then I’ll just sleep. That’s all I do. Or I watch a movie or just think about how I really don’t wanna go to school in the morning and think of a plan to get my way out of going to school, because this school is like 481734 years old.

Secret Secrets Are No Fun; Secret Secrets Hurt Someone

Keeping secrets can be okay if you keep them for like not long. Short enough where it doesn’t completely ruin your life. Keeping secrets for a long time is not healthy, because overtime the “guilt” or something like that will keep building until it starts affecting your everyday life, and if someone finds out it’ll be even worse because you’ve been keeping this secret for a long time. Also, secrets getting out might hurt someone. For example you have a homeless friend, and you tell that friend you’re also homeless but you’re not. You make sure you make that friend think you are homeless, but when they find out it will hurt them. Maybe? It honestly just depends on the person ^_^. Okay bye.

Max Abandoned His Family

I mean… He already knows what’s gonna happen if he goes to the camps so might as well save himself. Of course none of these decisions are good… Like you die with your family or you leave your family and die later.. And max could be useful no clue how but he might be superman and save the day. You know? It is a really tough spot to be in though. If I was him I would go to the camps so I could die with my family ^_^. I think something bad is going to happen to max though because karma, but like karma for what? Leaving his family who were going to die anyways? I don’t know. Okay bye.

 

On Stealing

I think Liesel is stealing to cope with all of the things that have happened in her life. I mean her mom is gone and her brother is literally dead. Her stealing might be a way of healing for her, and no that does not mean it is justified. It might be kind of helping her now but it will catch up with her. I mean when she stole The Shoulder Shrug she had a lot of paranoia. Thinking who saw and what they might do to her. I think she’s kind of weird in the fact that she’s really nice, but she steals things. It’s like the one really annoying nephew you have who’s really nice to when around your grandma and like deadly when nobody else is around. So yeah those are mu thoughts.
