Hope

People maintain their hope by doing things that may comfort them. Perhaps going to another person, talking to them and having a good time. Maybe just simply believing that whatever will hope will happen, will happen. You could support that with evidence and reason onto why that could happen, but of course you don’t want to get your hopes up too high in case something happened. Whenever I hope something will happen, I think about it a little but I mostly try not to focus on it too much in case. Depending on the situation, I’ll persuade my parents to let me do it. Such as if I was hoping to go somewhere or to do something with a friend.

Secrets Secrets Are No Fun; Secrets Secrets Hurt Someone

Her keeping some of the secrets is good, others are bad to keep but should be secrets. If she told anyone, even her closest friend, about Max they could all be in big trouble. Liesals secret about stealing food and books is good to keep, even though it’s not a good thing to do at this time period. Knowing and having to keep all of these secrets will probably effect Liesal one way or another. It could end up putting a lot of stress on her, or she’s tempted to tell someone. She may even accidentally say something without realizing, and risk a lot of things for her, her friends, and her family.

Max abandoned his family.

Max did do the right thing. It was a struggle to do at first, maybe considered selfish to leave, but it was for the best. The family wanted him to leave as well, for his safety. If he stayed he would be dead by now most likely, and they may have been separated anyways, it was best for him to go and save himself, even though he couldn’t save his family. He still felt tortured through it, but it would have been better than him staying with the family and possibly being separated and killed in the end. It wasn’t a wrong choice to do.

Fate or Chance?

I believe that these could be a bit of both? Most things probably aren’t meant to really happen, I just think things happen by luck and decisions. Maybe a past choice will effect something that happens in the future, and that’s set. But you could always change how something may happen by doing something at the right time, even though some things can’t be changed. Our lives are basically controlled by ourselves, our choices and such. But things can happen, and to where there’s no point of turning back. Coincidences probably just happen based on choices you have made, or maybe even by accident who knows.

Can books be dangerous?

Could books be dangerous? It depends more on the situation you’re in. Books can’t really be dangerous, unless you throw one at someones face. But sometimes, we may not be allowed to have books. Maybe it’s the place, it could just be a simple rule like ‘No books allowed’ if you’re at a pool or something of the sort, obviously. But, in situations such as Liesal was in, they may not be allowed to have books that support propaganda from places they do not approve of, or if it’s something about said places. Or about someone, if it was a book supporting the Jewish, or Communism, that would probably not be allowed and could get you in dangerous consequences.

The Book Thief

Reading ‘The Book Thief’ so far has been pretty good, and I enjoy the book. What do I like about it? Probably the darker and more mature kinda setting/tone. I expect she will, obviously, steal more books and perhaps either want to stay with this family or runaway and find her mother again. I also think she may learn more about her father and her friends. I haven’t read the book before, and I can’t say if there’s anything new that I’ve read through. ¬†But, overall, the book is very neat and I think the characters are pretty interesting along with the time period and setting.

My favorite book

Well currently I do not actually have a ¬†favorite book. Yet, I do have some books I really liked so I assume I could just talk about those, right? When I was younger I loved ‘The Familiars’ and ‘Kingdom Keepers’. I remember reading the ‘Warriors’ series by Eren Hunter and they were really cool, had some adventure and cool things. Recently I finished ‘The Clockwork Three’ which was also good, I’d get lost at some parts but picked it up quickly. As of now I am reading ‘Hiddensee’ by Gregory Maguire and I love it. I look forward to finishing it and finding more books by him. I recommend you read it, but it does have some darker scenes and such so just beware of that.
