      3. What was the last book you read for fun? What was it about? Did you like it? How did you choose it?The book I am currently reading Second Chance Summer, Morgan Matson. Yes I am reading it for fun. It's one of the best books I have read in a while. It's about this girl her father is dieing of Cancer so her family returns back to a summer house where this girl has
      left a lot behind her. The past soon catchs up with her. I choose it I read the first page and I was hooked. I really enjoy it because it reminds me of my family and I can just really realte to it.

Who assigned it?We actually just finished Ethan From, It's about this guy he is very poor and he is married to his wife who is sickly. His wife cousins lives with them and helps take care of his wife and well they fall in love. I didn't really like it, I wanted more to happen. I expected more from it. My english teacher.

      Drama,Teenage Relationships, Sci-Fi (Such as the Ulglies Series

      10. Do you use the library?
      The School's

      11. Do you do e-reading at all? What do you think of reading in that format, versus paper?I don't use it personally, I think it takes away from the point of reading an actual book.

      12. What influences your reading? (Recommendations, reviews.) What sort of book covers do you like?

      Just when I see something that jumps out at me I pick it up read the cover and the first page if I like and I can't out it down then I'm hooked
