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.
