waiting for spring vol 1  - Anashin

December 4-5

A sweet romantic story of a soft-spoken high school freshman and her quest to make friends, Waiting for Spring will delight fans of earnest, fun, and dramatic shojo like Kimi ni Todoke and Say I Love You. Mizuki is a shy girl who’s about to enter high school, and vows to open herself up to new friendships. Of course, the four stars of the boys’ basketball team weren’t exactly the friends she had in mind! Yet, when they drop by the café where she works, the five quickly hit it off. Soon she’s been accidentally thrust into the spotlight, targeted by jealous girls. And will she expand her mission to include… love? 

Review : This manga was so cute it's about Mizuki who is a shy girl who becomes friends with a group of boys from the basketball team this was such a funny adorable manga very light I love the characters. Mizuki use to be friends with this girl name aya and that character is back .

Review : I really enjoyed this book the format was something that was really cool told in texts and emails this is about two best friends who are both in there first year of college but they are both in different states this book deals with anxiety sexuality and friendship I loved it with the audiobook cause the authors narrated there parts this was a funny book the only problem I had was Ava's character was going out with the most fuck boy character but other than that pretty good story .

Book Review : Harry potter and The Goblet of fire J.K Rowling
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire - J.K. Rowling, Kazu Kibuishi, Mary GrandPré

November 4-19

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is the pivotal fourth novel in the seven-part tale of Harry Potter’s training as a wizard and his coming of age. Harry wants to get away from the pernicious Dursleys and go to the International Quidditch Cup with Hermione, Ron, and the Weasleys. He wants to dream about Cho Chang, his crush (and maybe do more than dream). He wants to find out about the mysterious event involving two other rival schools of magic, and a competition that hasn’t happened for a hundred years. He wants to be a normal, fourteen-year-old wizard. Unfortunately for Harry Potter, he’s not normal — even by wizarding standards.

And in this case, different can be deadly. 


Review : This may be my favorite of the series so in this book the Triwizard tournament is happening and somehow Harry's name gets put in the cup . And he's writing letters to Sirus to tell him what is happening . There is a new defense of the dark arts teacher Professor Moody and he's a bit weird but hes and interesting character . The cool thing about this book we got to see wizards from Different countries . Herminone is working out SPEW it's about having house elves being paid for work . And there is this stupid reporter who keeps telling lies and stories about everyone mostly Harry and even Hagrid she spills that Hagrid is half giant . Harry is doing pretty well with his tasks and he might even win . When Harry goes to see Dumbledoor about his scar hurting he sees into the past and the trial of Barty crouch's son who was one of Voldemort's alies . The last task comes and it's maze with some tricks and it's down to Harry and Cedric and they both hold onto the cup and it's a portkey and voldemort is back and Cedric is dead he gets away from Voldemort barley and tells everyone Voldemort is back but not everyone believes him . Moody takes harry and it turns out he was Barty crouch Jr. using pollyjuice potion this book was epic and action I loved it.
Quotes:
It matters not what someone is born, but what they grow to be.

Remember, if the time should come when you have to make a choice between what is right and what is easy, remember what happened to a boy who was good, and kind, and brave, because he strayed across the path of Lord Voldemort. Remember Cedric Diggory.” 

Numbing the pain for a while will make it worse when you finally feel it.”

“We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided.”


Don't talk to me."
"Why not?"
"Because I want to fix that in my memory for ever. Draco Malfoy, the amazing bouncing ferret...”

Who're you going with, then?" said Ron.
"Angelina," said Fred promptly, without a trace of embarrassment.
"What?" said Ron, taken aback. "You've already asked her?"
"Good point," said Fred. He turned his head and called across the common room, "Oi! Angelina!"
Angelina, who had been chatting with Alicia Spinnet near the fire, looked over at him.
"What?" She called back.
"Want to come to the ball with me?"
Angelina gave Fred a sort of appraising look.
"All right, then," she said, and she turned back to Alicia and carried on chatting with a bit of a grin on her face.
"There you go," said Fred to Harry and Ron, "piece of cake.”


Next time there’s a ball, ask me before someone else does, and not as a last resort!”

“Harry... take my body back, will you? Take my body back to my parents...”

I've never met anyone like you .
He hadn't meant it as a compliment , but Lilia took it that way flashing him a grin . What can I say , she said , I'm one of a kind .
Kell managed an echo of her smile, and she gasped. What's that on your face ?
The smile vanished . what ?
Never mind, she said , laughing . Its fine . Kell only shoot his head - he didn't grasp the joke

I hope  everyone  has  a great  thanksgiving
