Hello Tellings viewer!,
Alas the end of the second trimester is upon us. During this trimester I read 9 books and am in the middle of my 10th. I read quite a few challenging books, including, Autobiography of a Face by Lucy Grealy which had lots of medical terms that I did not know, Diary of Anne Frank by Anne Frank which was written in old english (which I love, but was often hard to understand), and I am currently in the middle of Woman Warrior by Maxine Hong Kingston, that has next to no plot line. I think the best book I read this trimester was Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets which has always been one of my favorites for it’s suspense and lovable (and dislikable) characters. My favorite author these days is J.K. Rowling, I’ve been thrown back to the days when all I ever wanted to do was read Harry Potter. I’m not entirely sure what I love so much about her form of writing, maybe it’s the magical element or the characters or the plot line or the hippogriffs! As for favorite genre, my undying love for fiction is, well, still undying. I made lots of progress towards my trimester goal, I read 2 ½ challenging books that improved my reading/writing skills. My goals for the next trimester are as follows…to read more than 11 books, read more genres, like poetry, for example. And last but not least, read at least 2 classics.
