Book Snapshots from Book Report Season...

Students at our school were invited to write a brief snapshot of the books they are reading this quarter for their book reports.

The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins

Epic.  Adventurous.  So intense that when you read The Hunger Games you will be on the edge of your seat.

After North America was split up into twelve districts, a game was made.  A crucial, heart-wrenching, jaw-dropping game that means that a girl and a boy who were 12 to 18 years old would be chosen from each district and would be put head to head to fight to the death.  The last person who was alive was lucky enough to go back to their district and rejoin his or her family.....

Friends against Friends, Sisters against Brothers, Enemies against Enemies, but it all comes down to who will survive this year.

Wanderer, by Sharon Creech

I am reading the book Wanderer by Sharon Creech.  It is a great book about a girl named Sophie who loves to sail.  She, her two cousins, and her three uncles go on a sailing trip to England.

I loved this book because it has a very exciting plot and very good descriptions.  This book has six main characters:  Sophie, Cody, Brian, Unclo Dock, Uncle Mo, and Uncle Stew.

I rate this book 4 1/2 chocolate bars out of five.

Mockingjay, by Suzanne Collins

In this book, Katniss Everdeen is the girl on fire.  It is the last book in the Hunger Games series.  Katniss is faced with many challenges that are life-threatening to her and to her loved ones.  The whole capital is against her now, and no place is safe.  She can't go back now because back was destroyed.  One wrong move and the game is over.  Loved ones are changing, and the capital is out for revenge--revenge on everyone.  Katniss is sure to die now.  Loved ones have been brainwashed, and others are obeying the capital to stay alive.  Living in fear, can Katniss still be the girl on fire?

  1. Caterpillar says that Mockingjay was one of the best books that she has ever read!! She was so disapionted about what happened with Gale and
    Katniss and that she was sort of disapionted with the ending.

  2. It seems like The Hunger Games series are really popular! I might have to read them.

  3. hashy girl agrees

  4. I have been hearing about the Hunger Games a lot lately... I will probably have to read them.
    Happy Reading! ~Stev

  5. Stev should totally read The Hunger Games books!!

  6. Hi! I recently published a YA novel that readers who enjoyed have said is similar to the Hunger Games. It is called Bloodmaiden, and I was wondering if you ever accept ebook copies for review. If not, I would still be interested in an interview and anything else you have to offer. I apologize for posting this here, but I could not find any contact emails on the site. Please contact me at: ChristineESchulze@gmail.com

    Thanks, God bless, and have a great day!

  7. About Wanderer I would have to disagree and rate it 7 chocolate out of 5.
