By now you should be well enough into your first (or second) independent reading book for September and have some idea about the storyline and some initial opinions about your main character. (If you have just finished your first book and have not yet begun your second, answer this prompt based on your first book.)
Please tell what book you are reading and what impressions you have so far about the story. What do you like so far about your book? I don’t want a summary of the storyline, but rather how you feel about the story. What is it that keeps you reading? Is it the characters or the events or the setting? etc. Be specific with an example from the book.
1. You are telling the reader the title of your book and what it is about your book that you like so far.
2. You are giving an example from the book that shows why you like this story.
An example: You might be reading an adventure book and enjoy the thrilling action and of guessing what comes next. Give an example of an exciting part of the story so far. Maybe you love the book you are reading because the main character is a lot like you. Then you would give an example of how the two of you are alike. (These are just examples to get you thinking.) You are not copying the author’s words, but rather telling the reader using your own words.
Since you cannot underline or italicize a book title in a blog, please enclose the title within quotation marks and use capital letters like this: “The Red Pyramid”
Please don’t give away any spoilers about your book. Keep in mind that what you say might entice someone else to read this book.
