Behind the Scenes

inthemiddlereading is a group blog, created and developed by a small group of middle school students and their adviser.  Our group is made up of editors-in-chief, junior editors, contributors, and proofreaders, but anyone from our school can submit a blog post to our editors for consideration.


 Hello friends. My name is flickagirl.ae. I am the author of The Dead Face Girl, which is pretty much the most awesome book ever. I like reading basically anything. And my future husband is Nathan Sykes from the Wanted (he's right in the middle in my bio picture). Yeah. I'm not a very complicated being.

AWESOME NAME: ZombifiedUnicorn
AWESOME BIO: Unicorns are cool.
And so is Green Day. And One Direction. And food. And of course, reading. I mostly read mystery books, and creepy, 'someone's watching you' kind of books. Only because thery're fun to read. But I also like realistic fiction, and once in a while I like documentaries (because of their awesome man voices when they talk).

USERNAME: balloonacy

I am crazy. Beyond a doubt, I am crazy. And an unregistered chocoholic.
I enjoy reading and playing video games and thinking. And plotting...
I am a generally amiable person (unless I'm in a bad mood...)
PS I am best friends with the alot
PPS If you want to talk to me I don't bite (very hard).

Well hello there! My name is ArwenPond and the list of things I love is very long! Let's start with Doctor Who, Hello Kitty, Scooby Doo, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, The Art of Racing in the Rain, His Dark Materials, Phantom of the Opera, The Princess Bride, Winnie the Pooh, and The Sword of Darrow. Some are movies, some books, some just random characters. I love them all equally, so please don't ask me to pick a favorite! I have a bad habit of starting a book even though I'm already reading one. I also love animals and chocolate, but not together!  Anywho, that's me! I can't make up my mind about anything and I love to read. Talk to you later!

My name is Poutypigie I LOVE!!!! to read. I read pretty much anything (besides romance and middle school drama books) especially sci-fi and fiction.I currently own 7 Horseman Theif Pouter pigeons. (they are awesome!!!) And I also love to write. Another thing I like to do is play "The Game", This is how you play:
1. you dont want to lose the game (that's bad)
2. whenever you think of the game you lose.
3. if you lose you want others to lose too, so you make them think about it Ex: saying/typing/etc I just lost the game or the game etc.
4. you can only lose every thirty minutes.
5. now that you now what the game is you are always playing it! :P

Bubblelover: Hi, if you don't know who I am I will give you one clue, if you see a girl walking though the hall with a heart shaped bubble round her neck you'll know it's me. I love books my favorite is Chicken Soup for the Soul. I LOVE  music. It's my weakness if I go a day without my favorite song ("Can't Hold Us") I will DIE. I have 5 siblings, 4 out of 5 are girls, the last is a boy he is the youngest, and I'm the oldest. Let me tell you one thing being oldest sucks for a lot of reasons. (If you see me in the hall just say bubbles and I'll know what you mean.)....oh and uh there's a secret to my user name but I won't tell you it. Only a select few know it and you're not it, so bye.

Yes that is what i said G-I-A-N-T B-A-T. i usally keep to myself but i might as well get it over with anyways. i read a lot but not those little books you humans read. i read scrolls, LOTS of scrolls. Well, even if i am a bat i still can do quite a few things. Basicly im not a vampire bat that you humans are so scared of, Im really like a giant fruit bat. Well anyways i should be on my way its hard to write and fly at the same time. by the way WHATEVER YOU DO DO NOT TELL PEOPLE I EXIST!! They will just come and kill me put me in pickled jars for testing. Well i bet you humans wont do that. You probably cant speak bat language anyways.

I'm an aspiring writer/artist who loves making comics and listening to music. I write my stories, but I haven't shown any of them to any human beings, except my cat. I love anime too, and try my best at drawing them. If you ever read my stories (which is a longshot) I almost always have the same characters. I love reading books, but I'm having a hard time finding a good book to read. Science fiction/fantasy is what I like, so naturally it's what I draw and write about. If I couldn't listen to music for 2 days...I would DIE!!! Rock music is my life! I love music! But I'm NOT a bieber believer!!! I barely listen to pop anyway, and no country. My favorite movie of all time is probley either A Wrinkle in time or Phantom of the opera. Bye.

So far I don't have a favorite book. I'll eat anything that  except mushrooms,pickles and slugs and other stuff. I want to be a writer one day or a Dictator with my  bat friend  Ally or something.I love horror movies sometimes but I love animated movies and  other movies.I love to act creepy, scary and  DEMENTED it's fun join me on the creepy side I have cookies and  Ahool a.k.a Ally. Hurry Ally is HUNGERY we may  not have any cookies left! *dramatic music*I love T.V. and aliens.I think boys are aliens sometimes.I have my own quote.Want to know what it is? NO you people might take it but ok.It's "people call me wierd but I prefer amazing in disguise."I hate spiders and I think there's an alien in my basement's bathroom.I have a pet Ally but she's protesting that.Can't wait for EPIC to come out it's a new movie and other stuff. Bye type to you people later.I  LOVE ANIME!!! No I'm not hyper or crazy just ME.

I love reading anything interesting such as fantasy, science fiction and sometimes thriller and a realistic fiction when I am bored. I really don't like those boring history books that some teachers make us read. I am told I am a random person so if I say stuff like PIZZA BACON that is just who I am .My fave food so far is cheese pizza, spaghetti, Mac&cheese, cheeseburgers, carrots, apples, oranges, starfruit and anything else I can try.

So far I don't have a fave book. I just like to read. I don't have any faves but you can leave me a suggestion on what to read next. I am afaid of spiders. I mean, nothing should have more than 2 eyes, it's wierd and the way they crawl on the floor eww no offense to the spider lovers out there. 

I am a huge Artemis Fowl fan and one day I might post some fan art for you to comment on. I love using the internet I would die without it . A question for all you readers out there What technology you cant live with out? I love to write I might put some fan fics & original fics on the blog. So can any of you viewers out there tell me what your fave book is? Some people think I am crazy but i say I am just different  from others and I am  random  I love books but some of the movies based on them stink in my opinion.
