Bog Post #6

this picture reminded me of the scene when Arsinoe goes to the woods with Jules to find Joseph. It gives off an eerie and fast paced vibe.
this picture is representing the beginning of the book when Arsinoe tries to open up a rose because she’s a naturalist.

the clouds surrounding the mountains reminds me of how I picture the island. It seems very grand but mysterious.

One of the songs that Alyssa and Savannah found is Our Destiny by Thomas Bergersen. It’s an instrumental and it’s pretty weird that it fits one of the last chapters extremely well. The changes in tone of the song delivers the scene when all the queens are displaying their talents. There was also a song named Changes by Jeff Bernat that really felt the vibes I was getting from Joseph.
I honestly loved the pace of the novel, especially the ending it kept me on my toes. I think parts of the soundtrack really fit well with the tone of the novel.
I didn’t really like the amount of characters in the beginning of the novel because it took a while to know who they were and what role they played in the novel.

Joseph was pissing us all off and honestly I wish I could smack him or something. First he loves Jules but he also is into Mirabella and he’s not choosing he’s just going back and forth between them. That one really got me but I also thought it was unfair how they cut off Elizabeth’s arm for helping run away even though they didn’t have definitive proof. One of my favorite things of the book was the mystery and the twists.

Jasper Jones
The novel is about a boy named Charlie and how one day the town’s outcast, Jasper Jones, asks him to keep a secret. Deep in the dark woods Charlie finds out a girl is hung up in the tree and Jasper pleads Charlie to help him figure out who did it. Knowing they can’t run to the police because everyone blames everything on Jasper, the duo set out to find out what happened that dreadful night.
I honestly loved the book and I’m not really into thrillers but this one was amazing. The story unfolds slow but it keeps you on your feet. I loved the intricate parts about the meaning of relationships and their importance to each and every one of us. It even has some humor elements surprisingly and I related to the characters in a way I didn’t think I would.
I’d probably recommend it to everyone, it wasn’t light-hearted but there are connections and emotions you wouldn’t feel otherwise. It does have some swearing though and it has some heavy topics.
