Summer Reading Post #2

As I continue reading Eleanor & Park by: Rainbow Rowell I just get more confused and have so many questions. I wonder what is going to happen between Eleanor and Park because I feel like they have a connection. I know that something is going to happen between them. I think that Eleanor really likes Park and doesn’t want to say anything. I also think that Park has no clue what he wants but not Eleanor right now. I love how Rainbow Rowell making you think and make predictions as you read. I also love the way she has written her book. She writes it just like how teenagers talk and think. I think that is what makes it so easy to connect with. If it is how we talk then it will be easy to understand. I can’t grasp a theme yet because it’s so unpredictable which is making me stay on my toes wanting to read more. I wonder if this story is going to turn into a love story/ true love story because I feel it coming. I can’t wait until I have finished the book because that’s how good it is. When I have read more and some of my predictions are made or not made I will let you know.

Summer Reading Post #1

Well its summer time again and you know what that means, time for the summer reading projects! We had to choose a book from the Printz Award Winner or Printz Honor book list. Out of all my choices I choose the book Eleanor & Park by: Rainbow Rowell. I have read a little more than half way through the book and so far I really like it. I can also relate to it really well which is good for me when reading a book. The main setting of the book is in the past in 1986 at school. In the beginning of the book there isn't a major conflict but there is a little bit. There are two main characters in this book. The main two characters are Eleanor and Park. Eleanor is a red hair girl. She is very quiet and the new girl. Park is a boy who doesn’t talk much and would rather keep to himself. I don’t know that much about it but that they are total opposites. The first time they meet was when Eleanor had to sit with Park on the bus. If I had to make one predication I would think that these two would fall in love. I hope they do, because opposites attract!
