    Posted by Olivia Basilicato at 12/16/2016

    twilight My name is Olivia Basilicato, and I am in the 10th grade, and My lit. teacher is Ms. Thornton. The book I read was Twilight, and it Is written by Stephanie Meyer. It was released on October 05 of 2005. The book is a vampire romance thriller, and the main characters are Bella and Edward. Edwards tries to warn Bella To stay away from him, but she stays by his side. the Author is Stephanie Meyers, and she writes the book Twilight. The book is very well written she keeps you on the edge of your seat wanting more so badly you won't be able to put the book down. The characters are so well written and they are perfect for this role no other character would have fit in as much as Bella and Edward do.

    First was the way that she started the book off. It starts in Forks, Washington which nobody would have thought and she intertwines popular cities into it. Then People can relate to this book so much because there is always that guy that you fall in love with but you know it is not healthy or good for you to have. Also, the storyline has a major twist because they are vampires like you do not find that I a regular romance novel. It brings so much more to the table that way. Of course, I would like books like this because I love romance novels and I also love thriller books to so when you mash them together I had to try to read it. In the book, there is a scene Where Edward tells her that he said" I said its bet if we are not friends but I never said I didn't want to be friends, " and I almost cried it was so sweet. This proves that he is caring for her which makes me love the book even more because he is not going to use her. This book Is so well written I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a thriller but the sincerity of romance.

     

    the book was again written by Stephenie Meyer This book is so awesome like its impossible how good this book really is. The way the book is composed and the thoughts that must have gone into making these characters is amazing. it is such a good book.

  • Vampire Academy Review

    Posted by Kennedy Badger at 12/16/2016

     

    Vampire Academy Hello I'm Kennedy Badger, I'm in eleventh grade, and my current literature teacher is Mr. Jackson. The book I am reviewing is Vampire Academy, it was written by Richelle Mead, it is a fantasy fiction book, and it was published august 16, 2007. The setting of this book is modern day 2007 in Montana, United States. The book follows the point of view of a teen girl named Rose, and her friend Lissa. The plot is about how Rose is a dhampir, a half human half vampire, and Lisa is a moroi, a full blood vampire, and how they are forced to go back to the academy where they were being hunted unknowingly and the challenges they face trying to figure out who's hunting them. Vampire academy, a fantasy boon written by Richelle Mead, is a very interesting book in my opinion through the fact that the main element and theme aren't like normal stories surronded vampires.

     

    Firstly I would like to discuss the main element. Why I like the book and have a strong opinion of it is because of the way it's written, it is written like a teen's diary would be written. For example it says "novice gaurdians- dhampira like me- and moroi sat together, eating and socializing, faces alight with whatever current gossip held the academys attention." This shows how the author wrote the book to attract a teen's attention. It is written like a teen would write a paper on something they don't really care about.

     

    In conclusion the Vampire Academy, a fantasy book written by Richelle Mead published in 2007, is a very good book. This book is written in the P.o.v. of a teen girl who has many challenges ahead of her. The book shows many promising and funny points along the way. Finally the book will be a greatway to escape if you are bored and just want to relax and have a laugh.
