Imitating Picassso

Alternative title: It's all About the Soul Hello my kings and queens! I hope you have been doing well. I've been doing fine, just a little stressed with the end of the year approaching. Since posting my last blog I have only read one more book, so my reading total has not gone up much. My total is up to 7 books now, and I'm on my 8th book of the 2017 year which is one more book closer to my goal of 18 books. I have just finished reading my AP book, so now I am moving on the one of the books on my mental to read list, which is The Last of August by Brittany Cavallaro. The is the second book in the Charlotte Holmes trilogy. Just a fun little tidbit, I have meet Brittany Cavallaro, she was very kind, and she signed my book.

The Last of August is about Jamie Watson and Charlotte Holmes, the many greats grandson and granddaughter of  THE Holmes and THE Watson, so its a modern take on the Sherlock Holmes stories in a way. In this book Jamie and Charlotte are trying to solve the m…

To Yield To Persuasion

Hello my kings and queens! How have you been doing? Good I hope. I've been doing alright, and I have been working on my reading goals such as I have finished another book, bring my total to 6 books. I'm now on my 7th book of the 2017 year, and that is pretty good for me. The book is my AP title that I need to read for my English class, but I got to chose the AP title, and I'm excited for it. It's a story I know and love which is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

Pride and Prejudice is set in the early 1800's and is about a strong willed girl named Elizabeth Bennet and her family of her four sisters, mother wanting to marry off all her daughters, and her level-headed father. The story is on with Elizabeth greatly disliking a wealthy man, named Mr. Darcy, who came with his best mate, Mr. Bingley, to the town in which Elizabeth lives.The story with great romance, misunderstandings, and of course pride and prejudices come into the story as well.

Romance, Murder, and History Oh My!

Hello my kings and queens! My name is Reagan Whiteley, and I'm currently a sophomore at Hebron High School. I live in a home where reading is all around me, with a mom as an high school English teacher and my sister majoring in Creative Writing in college. I do enjoy reading when I find a good book that strikes my interest. Some of my favorite books include Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell, The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyers, The One Thing by Marci Lyn Curtis and Nearly Gone coupled with Nearly Found by Elle Cosimano, which are all great stories, and you should check them out. However, my taste in books I like to read is like my taste in music: varied and all over the place. You can see this in the books I listed above because there are science fiction, romances, realistic fiction, and murder mysteries, but one thing I love in all books is romance even if the book is not a romance.

My reading goal for this year, as in 2017, is 18 books, and I have read 5 books so far. I'm trying …
