Rusil | 22 comments 1) Goosebumps - Don't go to sleep

2) Because Goosebumps are really exiting and scarier.

3) I started it on Monday,1/27/14.I think I will finish it on the first of second week of February.

4) The mood of the book is scary. My main character Matt is scared because whenever he wakes up he sees a different nightmare.

5) The author had used strongly emotions to express the characters. Also, he has a good sense of writing because he wrote the book like he was in it.

6) I would give advice to my main character Matt, not to panic. It would change Matt's life because now he won't get so worry about his nightmares.

7) I think the author had first asked questions to other about the nightmares they had. So, in the book he can express the nightmares.

8) Yes I did on Friday 1/31/14.

9) I read 13 books till now. Now 7 more to go.

10) It would be about fantasy world. Because I love fantasy.

Benny Imura #4:Fire & Ash

I selected this book because it looked interesting, and because Jonathon Mayberry is one of my favorite authors, and because its is an awesome series and the info on the back is very capturing.
3) When did you start it and when will you be done?
I started it on 2/6/2014 & I think I will be done in about a two days to a week,so probably by Monday 2/10/2014.
4) Describe the overall mood of the book. Also describe the setting of the book and how this contributes to the mood.
The mood of the book is frightening and creepy. The setting is in a town called Mountainside but on the zombie infested side called the Rot & Ruin and it contributes to the mood because scary to live near and fight zombies.
5) Describe two writing techniques the author uses in this book that you could also use in your own writing.
The author uses strong emotions & he tells the story from the characters point of view and he uses metaphors.
6) If the real you was a character in the book, who would you give advice to and how would this change what happens in the book?
If I was a character in the book I would give the scientist advice and tell them to search for Dr.Monica Mcready because she knows how to find the cure for the zombie virus and this way Chong(another character) and other zombies can be cured.
7) What kind of research do you think the author of this book had to do before writing the book? Explain your answer.
I think the author had to do scientific research because the virus and every thing is scientific and he probably had to talk to other authors about some adventure things so the book could be full of adventure.

Yes I did on Friday 1/31/14 at home and I did today 2/6/2014.

42 chapter books and 88 comic/manga and I'm on track to read 300-400 before summer vacation starts. NOT JOKING!!!!!
10) If you could write one book, what would it be about and why?
If could write one book, it would be about supernatural activity and the characters would be human but superhuman with superhuman powers. My book would be fiction/science fiction/fantasy.
