My personal reaction to this reading selection was that I was extremely shocked to find out that Clea's best guy friend is inlove with her. Her best friend doesn't want Clea to be inlove with Sage. Clea might leave him if Sage says he wants to run away with her. Clea feels to pressured to be a good girl and she wants to escape everything. The pattern of organization is cause and effect. Since Clea feels pressured to be a role model she becomes depressed. Because Sage fell inlove with Clea he will never give up on her. Clea's best guy friend being inlove with her makes her have to decide which guy she wants to be with. If she goes with Sage their fate is to die but thats her soul mate and if she goes with raymond she'll be with a man she doesn't feel a big connection with.

In chapter 3 the love continues between clea and sage. I’m freaking out because sage begins to impress her and she wants to fight the urge to love him but she can’t. Sage is trying to control himself because he wants to be with her. They both don’t know that they are inlove with eachother and think they can hide it. Clea tries to get away from sage but some how they always meet eachother again. I began to realize that the reason why she felt as if shes known him her whole lifeis because they’ve known eachother in pasts life… I believe that the authors intent was to give suspense because I was literally trying to read as fast as I could to finish the chapter and I want to keep reading but I had to stop myself. I really liked that feeling though and many books cant do that to me but this one has me star struck and I love it. To me the author is using a sequencial pattern because she goes in order of the day and how everything went.

The book I am reading is called "Elixir" it’s written by Hilary Duff. In the second chapter Clea Raymond pursues her goal of finding the mystery man who is in all of her pictures. She goes to Brazil and finally mystery man face to face. He saves her life when a man tries to kidnap her. She immediately falls in love with him for a reason she herself can’t explain. She tries to find out how he was in the back ground in all of her pictures since she was a kid and she never met him but he doesn't know how to explain it to her. My personal reaction to this chapter is shocking. I couldn't believe that she finally found the man she was so desperate to meet. At first she was scared of him and I thought that would affect the way she was with him but it seems that loves always wins in the end. I believe that the author’s intent was to surprise us in with unseen news. The author wants us to be reading at the edge of seat wanting us to read more and more. She wants us to imagine what was happening as we're reading the book. She doesn't want us to get bored. Always guessing about what's going to happen next. I think that the pattern of organization that the author is using is sequence. The author writes every event in order of how it happened. She doesn't write stories about the past or future but only of the present. BY JESSICA RIVERO.

My blog today is on a news report that I saw, it's titled "6 killed in Russia bus explosion; suicide bombing suspected". The report states that investigators think a female cause the explosion. The bombing occured at the city of Volgograd on Monday afternoon. The explosion injured thirty three and killed six. Detectives believe that the suicide bomber was a thirty years old from Russia's semiautonomous Republic of Dagestan. After viewing a video recorded behind the bus investigators think the female boarded around 2pm and the explosion happend right after. My personal reaction to this is that everyday more and more people are doing drastic things to express what they want and that makes me wonder how it's going to affect our future. It's sad to think that the bomber knowingly got on a bus that went through busy streets and killed six people and injured thirty three. Personally I would feel to guilty to ever do something like that. I believe that the authors intent was to inform us that the world is still corupt. Although we may think that we are safe, we don't truly know how safe we really are. By Jessica Rivero.

I loved the fact that it caught my attention and didn’t make me want to stop reading. I cant wait to read the next chapter. If I had to create notes to help me remember the most important points from my reading the style I would use lists because I think it’s the most effective way to learn. I personally think that other styles confuse you and use unnecessary detail. I think that using lists its faster and easier. It helps you get straight to the point and allows you to see exactly what you are explaining. Using lists isnt complicated, you will never get frustrated trying to figure out what else to bullet under a certain topic. Its truly good.

I believe that the quiz was correct about me. I love fiction movies. My favorite kind of movies are comedy. The last thing that read and enjoyed was a book by hilary duff called elixir. It was a fiction book but it would keep me so engaged that it felt as if i were actually watching a movie. I read the book within a week. I would constantly read it. Whenever we had free time in class I immediately would take out my book and lose focus on my surroundings.
