A Corner Of The Universe

A Corner of the Universe by Ann M. Martin is one of my personal favorites. This book is about a girl, Hattie whose summer started off as any other summer, but later finds out she has a mentally ill uncle that changes her summer. This new change in her life, opens up her eyes that, there is more to the world then just her small town. Throughout the book, Hattie spends time getting to know her newly found uncle. Hattie learns to love her uncle, even though he may not be normal or act like his age. She learns to love the way he can recite his favorite show, yell “happiness” when the sun is bright and shining, or even dance when no one else is. In the time that Hattie spends time with Adam, he helps her later see that, it is possible to lift the corners of our universe. That life is more interesting, when you try different things and you may or may not like that outcomes of them, but at least you tried.

I like how one of the things that this book shows is how anybody can bring a person happiness and start friendships, you don’t need to be perfect to be someone’s friend. You just need to be willing to try. Like one of the people Hattie meets, her grandmother considers a “circus girl” because her family is the owner of there current town’s carnival. But this doesn’t stop Hattie from trying to make a friend, even though the girl works with the carnival she is still a person. Throughout the book you can see that Hattie may not have a lot of friends her age, but even though some of her friends are not her age. They still bring her happiness in there own way, like any true friend should and with that she is content with her life.  I really enjoy reading this book and you should too.

Milk and Honey by Rupi Kaur (No Spoiler Short Review)

Milk and Honey is one of few books that have brought me to tears. She was able to make terrible, sad things, into beautiful poetry. When I first got a hold of it I was a bit skeptical. I thought it was going to be another boring book with sad love poems in it. But boyyy was I wrong. She divided it in 4 parts: the hurting, the loving, the breaking, and the healing. Every poem is based on some type of experience she has had in her life, which makes it closer to the heart when you’re reading it since they’re so vivid and detailed. What really shocked me is how I was able to relate to at least one thing in all 4 parts, which had made me eager to finish the book in one night. One thing I love most about how she writes is her wording. She is able to express so many emotions with just a few words, which is an amazing ability in my opinion. Another thing that makes this book so much better is that every time I read one of the pages, I paused. It was as if she has went inside my head and painted a museum of pictures in it. It makes you think. A lot. In a lot of ways, this book has impacted me quit a lot. It made me think of how I want to change how I live my life, how I’m going to help other with theirs, and basically impact the whole world as a whole. Even if you think you won’t like this book because either you hate poems or nothing heartbreaking has happened to you in your life, I STRONGLY recommend you still read it. I highly doubt you won’t regret it!

Percy Jackson Olympians: The Lightning Thief

Percy Jackson is one of my favorite books to read. It is easy and it has very interesting plot twists; also, the rising action puts you right on your toes. If you’re a young reader this will open your imagination: the author of this book is Rick Riordan, who has written many modern takes on mythology.This book is about a young boy whose dad is a Greek god Poseidon  which makes Percy a demigod he has a best friend with some kind of leg disorder which will be super cool to know what it is . he has this teacher Mr. Brunner is very old and he is Percy history teacher he is also is in a wheelchair you will know why later in the story. Poseidon and Zeus the brothers were fighting over Zeus lighting bolt Zeus said that Poseidon son stole the lightning bolt who knows who stole it maybe it’s him or someone else hopes you find out thank you for reading.

This book is about a young boy whose dad is a Greek god Poseidon which makes Percy a demigod; he has a best friend with some kind of leg disorder which will be super cool to know what it is. He has this history teacher, Mr. Brunner, who is very old: he is also is in a wheelchair (you will know why later in the story). Poseidon and Zeus, the gods/brothers, fight over Zeus’ lightning bolt. Zeus accuses Poseidon’s son stole the lightning bolt, but who knows who stole it? Maybe it’s him or someone else…

Hope you enjoy this book as much as I did!

Mrs. Love’s Summer Reading

I am not sure what is up with me this summer, but I didn’t read as many books as I thought I would…but I did read some amazing ones.

My promise/hope is that this year you’ll read with me and we can discover some great stories together. Maybe I just felt too isolated this summer.

So: here are ones I did read. No spoilers, which is why there is an absence of literary analysis.

Brown Girl Dreaming by Jaqueline Woodson


This was a great book, and I highly recommend it.

The Dark Thirty: Southern Tales of the Supernatural

I just started reading some of these stories. When we do our “fear” unit in October, we will talk about the nature of fear, and do different cultures fear different things, and why: most importantly, how do we combat what we fear?

Certain Dark Things by Sylvia Moreno Garcia

I loved this book: it is a vampire story from a whole new perspective. I learned so much.

All American Boys by Jason Reynolds is the one I just started (and I’m hooked already).
