My series is going to be the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th book of the ‘red rising’ series. I was first introduced to this series by Mr. Gagnier in his science fiction class. I have read most of the 1st book with only little to go left. I want to be able to complete all of them about 2-6 weeks each book. I am very excited to get to reading this because I am already quite involved with the characters that have already been introduced.
The bookish things I love
Seeing characters face the same difficulties that I have felt.- I feel like it makes characters more relatable and lovable but at the same time I love seeing characters living without my problems to sort of see a world of different problems.
Finding fanart of characters- I love being able to see other people’s perspective on what they might look like.
When a series has consistent covers- It’s very simple but nice to see them all together.
The light and enthusiasm given when someone is explaining a story- The reaction given from other people makes it feel like you have something to look forward to when talking about it or just reading it.
When an audio book reader brings life to the story- impressions are the biggest part to a good audio book. Adding character to the story is huge for me considering I do better at catching details of a book when I hear it.
The perfect setting for reading (in my opinion)
In my large room I have a lamp side table with a lamp next to my bed. It is a very simple and empty room. I would open my window wide open with the lights low enough to read and look out to see the stars if I want. Laying there in my bed with some very basic music in the background. No music that would distract me from what Is happening in the book but just to avoid the void of silence my large room creates. For emphasis on how big my room is, you can fit two king size beds in it and still have room to do yoga if you want. I definitely don’t need that much room but you won’t see me complaining about being able to do a cart wheel whenever I want without hitting a wall. I may hit the ceiling though.
Steelheart formerly known as Paul Jackson as a teen had been through the foster system since very little. When he was little his father was very abusive towards him and his mom. Finally he had had enough, and attacked his dad when his mom had been beat for hours. Paul lunged at his father knocking him over and hitting his head, and killing him. When the police arrived they took him into the foster system due to him having no family to go to.
For 6 years he stayed in the system running away and causing problems whenever he had the chance. When he was 18 he moved out and continued to cause problems and was eventually arrested and sent to prison. When he was 19 he gained the powers he has now. Without a care for the society that wouldnt help him he kept to his normal ways and killed anyone he seemed fit.
Finally he had changed his name to Steelheart, inspired by his power to change things to steel. He eventually grew fond of a girl that was on equal fighting ground as him. They were a great pair of villains and companions. Nobody could fight them especially when they were together but Nightfire (girl) wanted more than she had.
This led to the problem of trust between them. Nightfire was being very suspicious and going behind his back, and hiding things from him. One day she attacked him and knocked him to a serious state of health. ¨Why would you do this?¨ said steelheart not knowing that she had planned this from the start. ¨I want to be the best and I cant get there if you are by my side.¨ said Nightfire. ¨I loved you Nightfire! ¨I would have never done this to you! We could have done it all together!¨ steelheart screamed. ¨Im done with you¨ Nightfire said as she kicked him off the side of the building while he falls to the ground covered in a shroud of darkness.
