The perks of being a wallflower is written by Stephen Chbosky and is a young adult literature epistolary novel. It took me about 2 weeks to read it, which is quite long for me because I usually read books quite fast. The book has also been released as a motion picture, under the same name. The idea of the name for the book came after Chbosky experienced a bad breakup, and went through a rough time. He questioned why such good people let themselves get treated so badly, and then he realised that “that 's just one of the perks of being a wallflower”.
It was a fiction and was something a person would not do during the time. It was a new and revolutinary way of writing stories and Daniel Defoe is usually called the "founder" of English novel. The entire story about Robinson Crusoe was made up and therefore it was fiction. People during the era were somewhat stunned to see something different when it came to writing. Writing was usually considered something you would read to understand something, as in facts.
The Harry Potter series have been an interesting series for me ever since I have enrolled in Professor Fox’s class. I personally have not read any of the Harry Potter series during my childhood, but once I have enrolled in Professor Fox’s class I have recently just finished Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. Throughout my readings of these two books I have had many observations on certain aspects of the story that I would not have noticed when I was younger. These three aspects that I can’t imagine as a child noticing is how the Dursleys abused Harry, the stance on gender, and prejudgement based on appearance. In the first book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Harry first lives his life as a muggle not knowing anything about
During my elementary years, I don’t recall being interested in reading, but I do remember the first time I fell in love with it. I was in my 7th-grade reading class. I just completed a quiz when my teacher realized that I had nothing to do after. She offered me a book that I will remember for the rest of my life because it is the book that basically started my reading journey. It was called Tears of a Tiger by Sharon Draper, I loved the book so much that I read the whole entire series.
Very rarely do writers create a timeless piece of literature. Where they create a whole new world with the words they write and make the readers come back each time feeling like the first time they’ve entered those pages. Readers take the lessons embedded in each word of these masterpieces and find connections through their lives and communities. In Harper Lee’s breathtaking novel she conveys messages and characters that not only do people long to be but also can relate to no matter who they are. People such as Oprah Winfrey, Mary Badham, Lee Smith, Rick Bragg, and so many more icons in the literature of America have all been able to connect with the suffering and experiences all characters Harper Lee has been able to create.
• Author: The Author of the book “The Kite Runner” is Khalid Hosseini. I have heard about him before, but I never got to read any of his books before. • Genre: The book “The Kite Runner” is a work of fiction and drama. I personally think that people who tend to have issues with their parents, including teenagers, Muslims, both Shia and Sunni, rich and poor people, and finally friends who are really connected to each other would be really interested in reading this book. Moreover, I do not really read many historical fiction novels, however, this book is very unique and prodigious and I am genuinely impressed by it.
I didn’t relate to concepts of my parent’s generation, and parents of my generation thought that we were just weird! From the clothing to music every generation has used the same tagline “Parents just don’t understand. “However, as a parent of three teenagers I often encounter generational situations that requires me to enlighten my kids. Since, members of generation X have witnessed the creation of most of the current technology and the fades of the last few decades. I remind my kids on a regular basis of picking up a book and not always relying on technology.
These were topics and books I chose myself and not for a class. I think it had to do with having more freedom in the library that I looked for books myself. Most of my literacy journey took place in middle school. I enjoyed almost every book I read for a class and enjoyed going to the library. My middle school had the best YA section I read so many books I cannot remember so I just chose ones that I remembered and
This semester I have read a total of one book, a thrilling story set on the coast of medieval Japan, called Shipwrecks, by Akira Yoshimua. My reading goal for the semester was to read two books; I didn't quite meet the goal I set for myself. I started off the semester with a 1200+ page SAT Test Preparation book. I realized at about the turn of the first quarter that I could no longer go about trying to read it, it was terribly boring. Therefore, I began to read Shipwrecks and surprisingly easily got into it.
Misses Colombia, France, and Haiti were all given the same question: "Name something over the course of your life that you failed at, and tell us what you learned from that experience." Mittenaere's answer, as translated by an interpreter, was: "I've failed several times in my life, so I thought that I failed the first time that I went out on a casting because my name wasn't on the list. The very next day, I found that I was in a new book. So I think that when you fail, you have to be elevated, you have to try again, and keep going. If tonight, I'm not one of the winners, I will still have the great honor of being one of the 3 finalists.
