Jonny Anguiano (JonnyBoyySwag) | 7 comments there was a lot of books that are good but the books i want to read is "Starters" and "Ashfall".I want to read "Starters" because it's seems like a really good enjoying,intense book to read and i probably will like it.I also want to read "Ashfall" because it's about these two kids live somewhere were all of a sudden they are having a Supper Volcano.It seems it's a really good book to read and see what happens next or what will they do and survive.I want to read these two books because they seem the right ones to read and also challenge my self.

Elizabeth jimenez | 2 comments this book list contains many interesting books, but the one that pops out to me the most is "Th1rteen R3asons Why". in this class i'm hoping to read books that will inspire me to write more for my book. i'm also hoping to read books ill actually like and will keep me wanting to read.

Danny Velazquez | 6 comments There is really Great book but the one that cough my attention was "Night" is really interesting how you can read about what happen in real life. "Twisted" is sound like really nice how he has a crush on the daughter of your father enemy gives your a mystery to find out, "Novio" sound like a funny play that every one would love to read and following in his experience "A Step From Heaven" is a really nice book that is like a poem that describing her day and life

I am hoping that any of the books you choose or that we choose will impact your writing in some way, while at the same time give you a new perspective on life or other people. I will try to give you many options for reading in terms of both level and content. We most likely will start by choosing our own books because as I look over your lists, you guys have all chosen very different ones! Eventually, we will read some plays as well.

I agree with you, "Night" is a really good book and you will like what happens in each part of the book because it gets intense when you want to see what happens next.
