The Celestial Sphere

The sky

The beautiful night sky

Enough light for a glimpse

Enough color to see

Enough beauty to take in for a lifetime

Yet they come again every day

And we see people inside

Unaware, unknowing

That there is a glorious sky to take in

If they would just step outside into the blue

Book Review: The Van Gogh Deception

30971738The Van Gogh Deception by Deron Hicks is an edge-of-my-seat masterpiece, if you know what I mean. It revolves around a boy who has amnesia that somehow knows all about endless artwork. He is taken in by a family consisting of a woman and her little girl, Camille. In a trip to the museum that hoped to jog his memory, unexpected things start happening. Well, even more unexpected things . . .

Update

As you might have noticed, I haven’t been using a lot of photos I’ve taken recently. I used book covers from the internet, a collage of photos made using the computer, et cetera. This is because, at the moment, I’m not at my home. I’ve been “hotel-hopping” with my mom, because our house has mold inside it, that has been infecting us ever since we moved in.

Therefore, it’s a bit hard to do much. I’ll try to take a few pictures (although, they may not have the best backgrounds or lighting) and keep up with posting, through all this. I enjoy my blog so much– and all of you! So, I will do what I can in the time being, which will probably consist of:

  • Drawings/Paintings
  • Book Reviews
  • Polls
  • Quizzes
  • Anything-Else-That-I-Can-Think-Of-That-Doesn’t-Require-Personally-Taken-Photos

Thanks for reading, and have a great day, all.

This Is What I’ve Been Doing…

So, over the summer, (or any time, frankly) you haven’t heard a lot from me. I’ve been doing mainly these things:

  1. Writing
  2. Reading
  3. Minecraft

Don’t ever tell me Minecraft is just a bunch of blocks… since this is what I have been making.

This and so much more . . . I hope I can get back to regularly posting, though. I really enjoy this blog, so don’t leave just yet, Jemma is back!

Book Review: Because Of Mr. Terupt

Because Of Mr. Terupt is a fascinating book. It revolves around a teacher, different from any other teacher these students at Snow Hill School have had before, who did more than just teach them. Each student had their flaws, and Mr. Terupt knew so. By the end of the year, everything had changed . . .

For the better.

This story is absolutely heartwarming, where the students go through thick and thin together, even if they may not have dared to speak to each other at the beginning of the year.

Book Review: Fever 1793

Fever 1793 was a hair-raising, suspenseful, and intriguing historical fiction. Laurie Halse Anderson really knew what she was doing while writing this book. As the saying goes, “truth is stranger than fiction.” Mattie Cook goes through things she never before could have dreamed of, losing loved ones and surviving yellow fever. She evacuated her town in Philadelphia with her grandfather, leaving her sick mother to be treated and her cook to take care of everything at home. This journey taught Mattie so many things, and us alongside her.
