Our soundtrack uses lots of title songs and theme songs from movies, shows, and games. Mostly because it reminded us of them. The songs that jumped out to me were the Mr. lonely song for Marcus because of how many times he’s rejected, and the Toy Story song You’ve got a friend in me. I loved the story line and that it was more intriguing throughout the book. I hated that some of the characters made really dumb decisions. I’m sad that Marcus is still alone, thats also what makes me mad. Now that everything is finished I wish that there was a movie I think it would be a really good movie.

It was a really good book I always like military books especially special ops because theres so much to overcome and to see some of these guys perserve and excell while doing it is inspiring sniper training is brutal and it shows in this book he is tested harshly and pushed to his limit. Its very eye opening to read some of the stories he tells about the war and what he sees and how it relates to his life it is extensive and thorough in what he does. I also liked reading about the PTSD because it blows you away what goes through some of those guys minds when you think they’re normal.

I thought that No God But God looked interesting I might have my mom read it and see if she likes it. When I was little I would get books and just say thanks but on the inside I would be one of those kids saying what the heck is this. I don’t think I’ve ever asked for a book before. If I get a book then I usually read it after Christmas, I don’t like to get books for Christmas because I usually don’t read. If I get a book I don’t want I might try to read it and if I don’t like it I usually finish it and then put it away. My series is a military based series if I was to give it to someone it would be to anyone who likes action adventure books. For Thanksgiving I went to Moroni and ate dinner and went rabbit hunting… For Christmas I will probably go to a couple family parties and go snowboarding on Christmas day.

It seems like there is no middle ground on this book either everyone loves this book or hates it the people who hate it hate it because its hard to follow, they thought it was extremely boring, misleading everyone was expecting more of an entertaining book, or didn’t like the characters and scene and thought they weren’t built well enough. The people who did like it loved the story line and loved how the story develops which also means they didn’t think it was boring. But almost everyone agrees on 2 things, the beginning of the book was EXTREMELY SLOW and takes absolutely forever to get through and understand, and the end of the book has an amazing twist that no one could’ve predicted. My group was mostly on the hating side of it because we thought it was hard to get through and confusing but

I didn’t like the book at all I thought it was super boring and incredibly difficult to get through because of that I agree with most everyone else the end twist is extremely good but to be honest the only reason I made it that far was because i didn’t have much of a choice.

This picture of the berries reminded me of Katherine because she’s the “poisoner” and is forced to eat poisoned food to prove her strength… it really reminded me of one of the first chapters when they’re celebrating the birthday and they have a lot of poisoned food for her to eat and she throws it all back up.

This is a picture of a picture of the sky and it reminded me of Mirabella because she’s the elemental and the dark clouds at the bottom reminded me of storm clouds and Mirabella’s favorite element control is lightning.

I tried to find animals so that we would have a good picture of something to show Arsinoe’s powers because she’s a “natrualist” and is trying to control animals


I personally didn’t like the book very much It was hard to get through i felt like it missed the beginning hook to bring the reader in it has the ending hook to get you to read the next one but it missed a hook at the beginning of the book to make you want to read it. If I would’ve been reading it on my own choice I never would have finished it because I felt it wasn’t intriguing enough to make me interested.

I chose Abraham because it seems like David really looks up to him and they both like each other.

I chose to do the Steelheart series by Brandon Sanderson because we’ve been reading the first book in class and I’ve really liked it so I’ve decided to continue the series now while its all fresh in my memory instead of having to restart or try to remember what happened in the first book. I’m about half way through the first book and im hoping to have them all done by thanksgiving but im expecting to be done just after.

Blog Post #2: Steelheart’s Backstory

Sep - 06 2017 | 1 comment | By

5 years befor our story begins not much was different, EPICs were destroying, looting, and doing anything else they pleased. The larger governments were still in place and decided to meet together to figure out something to do to stop these EPICs from taking over the world and hurting innocent people. They decided to develop epic powers make them stronger and then to implant them into soldiers to fight against the EPICs. They called this the Steelheart plan.

One of the lead scientists of the Steelheart plan was out with his family one Saturday evening doing their grocery shopping, he, his wife Anna, his son Shane, and his daughter Emily when a gang of EPICs raided that grocery store. They came in and destroyed everything that they didn’t take one of the epics with amazing strength started pushing over the giant shelves all in a row. They tipped one after another like giant metal dominoes, as they were falling the scientist hiding in one of the aisles tried to move his family from being crushed, his daughter bringing up the rear tripped on a can that had been knocked to the floor everyone else turned around to see the 7 year old crushed under the metal. The EPICs were done they had gotten what they’d come for and disappeared into the night.

The next week the scientist didn’t sleep, didn’t eat all he did was develop and work on the power development. Two weeks later he had finished what he started and all the powers were ready to be implanted. They started testing on animals all trials were successful, the only problem the soldiers were not yet trained and ready to fight these high powerful EPICs. The scientist fought and tried to speed the process but the governments wanted the soldiers mentally trained to take on these EPICs. This was not enough for the scientist, he wanted justice for his daughter and he wanted it now.

The next day the scientist decided that he was going to do something to prove that soldiers would be strong enough that they wouldn’t need the training. He injected himself with one of the 500 tubes going into the soldiers. The excruciating pain was almost unbearable he screamed and wailed, the other scientists heard this and ran to help him there was nothing they could do. He was already growing and changing he grow in height and stature he became strong strong enough that he smacked the floor and left a hole where his hand had hit. After 1 hour and 23 minutes of excruciating pain he had turned into something beyond what they had ever dreamed would come out of this experiment. Everything had changed in that man he had his emotions amplified and now his anger turned to a loathing rage against everyone and everything. He destroyed the science lab and everyone in it escaped and set of to destroy every epic and person who had ever done anything wrong.

In his hate filled journey he learned that he was much stronger than the EPICs and the governments his selfishness turned to arrogance and he decided to make himself in charge because he was the strongest and no one would stop him.

I first learned to read from my mom and elementary school. My favorite books in elementary school were the magic tree house books, in junior high my favorite books were the Alex Rider series books. My favorite place to read is camping and in the mountains because its easy for me to focus and imagine with fresh air and little sound. Now my favorite books are the U.S. based true story military books. I can only read one book at a time otherwise I confuse the stories together. My favorite types of books to read are military action/adventure based books.
