I chose Trials of Apollo: The Dark Prophecy. I chose it because of it is the next book in the series. It’s published by my favorite author, Rick Riordan.

It is at reading level 8th-12th grade. The main character is 15 years old and has companions that are younger and older than him. It is still a very good book


He got all of these awards:

The book is well known through out the country. They have not made a movie out of it yet, but I’m hoping that someone will. Rick Riordan is known through out the world. I know that he still has more ideas for books and hope that I can read all of his books this year.

My Reading

I got 966 on my last test. This test I got 1084. I am improving, but I thought I would get a higher score. The test is giving me more ideas for books to read. The test shows that I am getting better at reading.

I like that the main characters are always calm they never panic. I liked that we had to bring stuff that they used. I would change how much gore is in it. I would change how they guard Mal Gorman.

Get my assignments turned in on time in this class. I will read The Trials of Apollo: The Dark Prophecy. I chose this book because I read the first book in the series and I want to see how this ends.

Personal Adventure

Image result for cello with bow          Normally I get home do homework and chores then watch TV. It is pretty boring. I would try to change my schedule but it would always go back to the same old thing. Some times I would go to a friends house or go to macey’s but it was still boring.

          My call to adventure was getting to junior high I had to choose an instrument to play which I hated, but it was the rule. It was hard for me to find an instrument that I wanted to play. I then chose the cello. And playing it is hard because you have to hold the bow in a specific way and sit a certain way.

I was holding my self back. I kept telling my self that I couldn’t do it, that it was to hard, but my parents were there to help me. I was able to push my self. Now I’m loving it, it was a very interesting experience.

My mentors were my parents the helped build up my confidence when we were playing in our first concert. Mr. Beck was one of my mentors along with Mr. Shumway they helped me understand the music and how to hold my bow and cello. They told me what the notes are and their names and counts they get.

I thought that with out it I wasn’t lucky any more and so I then started to look for it and after a wile I found it. Then a week later I lost it again. It took me forever to find it again. I was so sad that I lost it that I cried again forever. I then found it one my birthday and got more cars.

On Christmas break I had done a lot of stuff. I went to the Zoo, got $54 from my grandma and grandpa, had gotten an X-box one, had a lot of ham and turkey, had fun with my family, and had made many wonderful memories. My aunt and uncle from Pennsylvania came for the holidays. We saw many of my family members who live faraway. All of this took place on Christmas eve to New years day. On New years eve we watched scary movies and at midnight we shot confetti and had balloons fall from the ceiling.

The book I have chosen is The Whisper by Emma Clayton. Emma Clayton lives in Leamington Spa, England with her two kids. She won three awards, USBBY Outstanding International Books Honor List, 2010, Texas Library Association’s Lone Star Reading List, 2010, Yorkshire Coast Book Award, 2010. The Whisper is the sequel to The Roar. The book is about two telepathic twins who are separated and their only goal is to find each other.

My goals are to do assignments in class and keep my grades up and turn in my homework. To be healthier, I would like to have a healthier diet and life style. Finally to read more books, I want to be a better reader.

Symbols and Theme

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Percy’s Sword is important because without it he would be gorgon lunch. The sword symbolizes, strength. He also has his watch that can turn in to a shield. That represents defense. The least important object is his panda bear pillow pet. It symbolizes care, and warmth.

That Percy is very powerful. Boys form ages 12 and up. If I was designing the cover I would of added more detail and add in all of the characters on the cover.

The theme is that you need good friends to go threw tough times. Hazel needs Frank to help he feel welcome. Frank needs Hazel to make him feel safe. Percy needs Frank and Hazel to just be there for him when his memory is wiped.

My favorite book

My favorite book is the mark of Athena. It is my favorite book because I read the Percy Jackson series and I loved them. In it Percy is on the Argo II and they are trying to find the Athena Pallas, because it has this power that will make the half bloods unstoppable. I think that it is a really good book. I would recommend it for everyone age 13 and up if they like fantasy books.

The Son of Neptune

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

I read The Son of Neptune for my book because i liked the Percy Jackson series, my mom told me to read the PercyThe Son of Neptune (The Heroes of Olympus Book 2) by [Riordan, Rick] Jackson Series and I loved it. It was about a demigod named Percy Jackson and he has lost his memory. He finds this camp named camp Jupiter and every one is afraid of him because of the fact that he is the son of Neptune and Neptune is cursed because of the fact that the Romans hate the water and Neptune is the god of the ocean.

The Author if this book is Rick Riordan he was born and raised is San Antonio, Texes, now he lives in Boston. His daughter Haley Riordan Inspired the Percy Jackson series as a bed time story. He taught English at Presidio Hill School In San Francisco.

The copyright date is October 2011. The newest date is 2013. The book was published in 2011 I have the 2011 edition. The year matters because of if someone wants to know or is the author needs to know.

Book that are similar are; The Lost Hero, The Mark of Athena, The House of Hades, The Blood of Olympus, The Lightning Thief, The Sea of Monsters, The Titans Curse, Battle of the labyrinth, The Last Olympian. Men and Women

The book is about For Jr High and High School. The character is 16 so I can assume that it is for people around that age. I think that other people around that age will like that.
