I am reading Gitchie Girl by Paul and Sandy Hamman. The book has 151 pages and I stopped on page 130. I was out of class so I was unable to read a whole bunch. I believe this book should be taught to the whole class.
1. This book is a true story and it was very real to read.
2. It brings attention to the fact that bad things happen to good people.
3. It also inspires you to never give up just because something bad happened to you. If you survived a tragedy you need to take from it and push through life.

I started reading Halt's Peril. It has 386 pages. I read to page 30. My book probably shouldn't be assigned in class because not everyone would like this book. Another reason would be because you would need to read the other 8 books to know whats going on in this book. Last but not least it should not be taught in class because it hast won any awards.

I am reading One for the Murphys by Lynda Hunt. There is 224 pages in the book and I am on page 113.
1. This book should not be taught to the class because it talks about abuse and may trigger something for some students.
2. This book should not be taught to the class because it is a book written for fun and doesn't have a point.
3. This book should not be taught to the class because the book is really simple and doesn't challenge most readers.

I finished The Leopard a few days ago and am reading Throne of Glass by sara Maas. It has 404 pages and I am on page 198.
My book should be taught t the class.
1. Firstly, because the main character is a strong woman with incredible will and mental fortitude.
2. Secondly, because the plot is a bit more complex and darker than most books and I think we all need a bit of darkness to appreciate the light.
3. And lastly, because the story is absolutely wonderful. It's fast paced and the plot interact and deep. The characters are really well developed and you are on the edge of your seat, (metaphorically speaking), constantly.

I am currently reading If We Survive by Andrew Klavan, the book has 339 pages and I stopped on page 229 today.
Reasons this book should not be taught to the class.
1. This book is violent and may be disturbing to some people.
2. This book is good but not very difficult to read and some people may not like that the book is not challenging.
3. Not everyone likes the same genre of books and it isn't fair to make someone read a book they won't enjoy.

I am currently reading the novel Game by Barry Lyga, it has 520 pages and I stopped on page 277. I believe this book should not be taught to the class.

1. My book should not be taught in class because it is for a very mature audience.

2. This book should not be taught because there are a lot of psychological things that could end up triggering a student, lots of gore, rape, murder, ways to commit crimes to get away with them, and sexual thoughts are mentioned in this story.

3. This specific book should not be taught in class because it is the second novel in the series.

I just started reading The Brilliant Mind of Amber Sunrise today. There are 296 pages and I stopped on page 63. I believe this book should be taught to the while class here are some reasons why.
1. It is about growing up. For example, the main character of my book, Francis, is dealing with Leukemia. He is accepting of the fact that he might die.
2. It teaches us how life is important so, you should figure out who you are before its to late. Don't just sit around and watch things happen. Experiencing things is a good thing but not when they could impact the rest of your life in a negative way.
3. It is a great book so far and it is really entertaining.

I had finished the book A Midsummer Night's Scream by R.L. Stine, and started the classic The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson. This is a short book with only 116 pages, today I stopped on page 41.
1. I believe that this book should be taught to the whole class, mainly because it is a short, classic novel.
2. This book seems to be a mystery novel, that was written in the 1860's, leaving it to have a whole different vocabulary than what we are used to seeing and reading.
3. It could help build a person's weak vocabulary up to a college level, that is if they decide to read it.

I am reading the book Devil at my Heels by Louis Zamperini. It has a total of 289 pages and I stopped on page 100 today.

1. I think the first reason this book should be taught to the class is because it is inspiring.

2. The second reason this book should be taught to the class is because it talks about dedication and what it takes to be the greatest you can be.

3. The third reason I think this book should be taught to the class if for the lesson the book teaches you as you read it, when you are put into tough situations you make the best out of it and do what you can to make it right again.

I am reading the book Infinite Sea by Rick Yancey. It has 300 pages and I am on page 267. This book should not be taught to the whole class.
1.) This book involves killing people and supernatural things happen throughout the story
2.) It contains a decent amount of swearing and awkward scenes throughout the story line
3.) This book is the second book of a trilogy, you have to read the first book before this one

I am reading Ten Thousand Skies Above You by Claudia Gray. There are 426 pages in the book and I'm on page 328. This book shouldn't be taught to the whole class.
1. It is the second book in a series so you really should read the first book. Most classes don't read series.
2. Although it has a lot of action and science fiction, it also has a love story that might not interest everyone in the class.
3. I love this books plot because it is constantly changing, but I don't love the way the author writes. Some parts are good, but others I want more details or emotion.

The book I am reading is Star Trek the Next Generation: Grounded. I am on page 150 of 268.

1. My current book should be taught to the whole class because it takes a lot of imagination to enjoy this read. I feel that many people could use some more imagination.
2. My book should also be taught because it includes a lot of actual scientific terms.
3. Finally, my book should be taught to the whole class because it explains the troubles of love.

2. It's not over any important historical events that we could learn about.
3. While it is a very good book, it won't teach anyone any anything important.

Today I finished reading Once by Morris Gleitzman with 163 pages and that was the fifth book that I have read this quarter. The first reason why I think my book should be taught because it kind of shows you what it was like for some of the jewish children during the holocaust. This book also teaches you about what it was like going to the death camps, and riding the trains. My last reason is just because it's a really good book and if you want to read a good book about the holocaust, you should read this one.
