  1. 1.my favorite scene is from the book Extras when Aya and her friends are being chased by hovercams and shes running and planning out where to hide and flying on her hoverboard and trying to avoid running into trees and its just a really cool thing to imagine in your head.
    2. I read books all the time and I really enjoy them.
    3. I like fantasy, mysteries and realistic fiction because its fun to imagine things that aren’t likely to happen and i like the challenge of figuring things out when reading mysteries and realistic fiction because its about what happening now or something likely to happen in the future.

  2. Hey Patti R. Stop by, call, or email the library so we can get you signed up!


  3. 1. I love to read Harry Potter and my favorite scene is in the Deathly Hallows when Harry is walking under the invisibility cloak to be killed by Voldemort. He opens the snitch and finds the Resurrection Stone. All of his dead friends and family appear before him and encourage him, telling him to be brave. This is my favorite scene because it is so sad. When I first read the book, I was convinced that Dumbledore didn’t really care about Harry and was just using him. That is what makes this scene so gripping.

    2. I love to read a variety of books for teens and often times more than once. I love to talk about books with my friends and I think it will be fun doing it for a library. I volunteer at a public library every week during the summer.

    3. I usually like books like Pretty Little Liars and Private. They are somewhat realistic (like they aren’t fantasy), yet they are filled with drama and suspense. They are kind of like Desperate Housewives, which I also enjoy, in the constant murders and secrets. I also like books that are realistic about high school girls, like me, because I can really relate to them. I love Meg Cabot books. Lately, I have been really interested in reading about the renaissance. I like books by Philippa Gregory and Carolyn Meyer in this genre. The only genre I really don’t like too much is fantasy. Now, I do like a few fantasy series, but none of the ones involving dragons and hobbits. I like Harry Potter, Maximum Ride (which may not even be completely fantasy), and His Dark Materials. That is my limit on fantasy. I’m sorry if this is getting too long but I just love talking about books and I think that I would be great at book reviews.
