I have just finished reading a book called Loser by Jerry Spinelli. He writes beautiful, emotional books and the ones I have read are about being different. Star Girl, also by Jerry Spinelli, is amazing and makes you look at the world in different ways. It made me cry because I’m soppy, but I definitely recommend both books!!
The other books I’ve been reading at the moment are the Stephanie Plum novels by Janet Evanovich which are super exciting! Stephanie Plum is a bounty hunter who lives in Jersey with her hamster Rex. I think there are 18 books and I need to order the 11th one. They a funny and sometimes sad but Stephanie’s life is VERY entertaining!!!
I’m writing this whilst eating so Ryvita which isn’t cake but we can pretend….
Hello! Thank you for all your lovely comments by the way….
I have been meaning to read the Harry Potter books for ages! I have listened to all the CD’s/tapes and watched all the films but reading the books is the best thing to do really. I am on the last book now, The Deathly Hallows and it’s great but my favourite is the Prisoner of Azkaban. Anyone who hasn’t read them really needs to!
I have also just finished reading an amazing, emotional book called Wonder by R.J Palacio about a boy called August who was born with a deformed face and it is about him starting school however each part of the book is from someone in his family or their friends view point and it’s an absolutely inspiring! I think we are surrounded by amazing books and literature but no one thinks that they will enjoy them more than an Xbox or a film but they’re wrong because some books are just brilliant. It’s great the way that they make their own worlds and people and that you make friends (or enemies) with them along the way.
I have decided that when I grow up I would like to be :
A movie producer
A set painter
in my spare time of course. I also have a goal that I am going to try and save the world, and not from evil squirrels whom steal designer scarves either, I want to come up with eco-inventions to save the earth. The word terra means earth in Latin I think and it is a very cool word. I am in the mood for list-making this mood may have been inspired by the brill Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot . Anyway :
Stellar ( another Latin one I think )
Squid ( I like squid )
Vello ( bicycle in French )
Tangent ( I go off on a tangent quite alot and this word sounds like an orange)
We went to see the work house near Nottingham yesterday, using our new National Trust memberships and it was quite interesting however it didn’t have a tea room.
At the moment I am practicing my movie making by making a three person version of Romeo and Juliet which is proving difficult but fun! It stars Oscar, Tallulah and myself. I am using Imovie to edit my films and it’s really cool as you can add sound effects and transitions as well as voice-overs… I am doing Romeo and Juliet at school and it is interesting; I really enjoyed Baz Lurman’s version of Romeo and Juliet starring Claire Danes and Leonardo De Caprio !
