My goal in the second trimester for reading was to read 11-13 books. I ended up meeting my requirement at 11 books. Something that challenged me a bit was an amount of time to read, while balancing other activities. My favorite book this past trimester was The Cay, a book about the island of Curacao. I do not really have a favorite author but I find what James Patterson writes is very good. He writes for many ages and genres. My favorite genre is Action because it always leaves you on your seat. I perfectly achieved my reading goal but had some troubles as I said earlier. My goal for the third trimester would be to read 15 books or 2 a week and work on reading poetry. Also I’m aiming for all check pluses on letter essay’s.
