One thing that surprised me is that I thought Fall out was going to be an action and adventure story. It still is, but in a different way. It's about a family who has lived undercover for many years, but now the government has found out. There dad is running a company but It is being taken over. They have to fight more "technology" wise then physically. It is very suspenseful but it surprised me on what it is about.
One thing that has really anoyed in my current independent reading book " Slated, " is that Kyla's mother isn't as kind as you would hope. This is frustrating to me because someone like Kyla that has terrifying dreams and is so quiet, has a new mom that isn't quite mean but strict. Also, Kyla's mother didn't seem too worried when on page Kyla by accident picked up a knife by the knife and ended up cutting herself herself. This also took me by surprise because I knew Kyla might not have a big reaction because she's never seen blood but I thought that the mom would've had a little bit more noticeable reaction. The main reason that the mom in slated irritates me is because, when Amy took Kyla on that walk and went to a place they shouldn't have gone. The mon had found out and once the girls returned home, the mom was infuriated with them but I was upset because she was also mad at Kyla after she didn't know any better.
I am reading Legend. In legend I was annoyed that day said he was going to meet the mysterious man with the plague cures. Even though he is the most wanted criminal his character is growing on me and him getting injured again would upset me. I also know that he is very desperate to help his family but I was worried it would be a trap. Sadly it was, however I was surprised at his clever solution of speaking through the speakers lining the ally. I was also surprised when he could tell so easily that the person was a government official just by the clip of their cape.
i am reading the book Better Nate Then Ever. I was surprised when Nate decided to go to New York by himself. He is thirteen years old and he is traveling from Pennsylvania to New York. New York is a populated area and there is a variety of people living there. what Im trying to say is bay people can do bad things to him.
In the book The Finest Hours by Micheal J.Douglas and Casey Sherman what surprised me is the fact that of the 30+ sailors saved, 32 of them were saved in a boat made for 12 people. This surprised me because the 4 people operating the boat had never worked together before. Also the rescue was in the middle of a Nor'easter with huge turbulent waves. What also surprised me was that they survived the ordeal and so did the sailors who rode with them. Last bu least they also navigated through the storm with almost no visibility,in a ship full of people, with a part of there trip where one wrong turn would kill them. In conclusion The Finest Hours by Micheal J.Douglas and Casey Sherman is a true story full of twists and turns, most of them being pleasant surprises.
In My book,Kid Athletes, something that has surprised me was when Jackie Robinson was running on fairways( areas where you hit golf balls) and striped them. I did not expect him to do this now because he always plays things safe. Some text support includes,”The boys looked up to Jackie because he was quick enough to dash onto the fairway,grab a ball,and dart back behind a bush.” This is one of the reasons I was surprised about this in Kid Athletes.
In the book, Unwind, what was annoying is that the chapters kept alternating from one individual to another. This is aggravating because when a reader starts to devour a chapter, it ends and moves onto a different character, who they may not even like. For example, in the text it states, "Connor must hear the chattering of her teeth, because he puts an arm around her, and says, 'I'm cold too. Body heat, right?'" After that sentence, it moves onto a different character, Lev. Another reason why it is irritating to witness this is that the reader might lose their train of thought and the knowledge of what had happened in the previous chapters, due to the insight on what you just gained. It is the same exact things as if you read two books at the same time, you get all of the information all jumbled up. For example, in the text it declared in the beginning of the chapter, spoken from Pastor Dan," "There are no wrong thoughts, only thoughts that need to be worked through and overcome." After hundreds of pages after that sentence, more pastors appear. The reader almost forgets about Pastor Dan. When chapters switch from points of views, it not only jumbles up the readers information and makes him/her forget, but it also suddenly stops and makes the reader wait for the person to come back up again.
One thing that really annoyed me in the book Shattered was when Stella had to learn her husband died after all the year, that she thought he had left her.
One reason it is clear this is annoying, that is on page 122 it says " Stella cries. Great gulping sobs. She never new how dad died, or that he was dead for sure. She only knew he dissapeared and never came back. She never new it was my fault. But despite the tears, I can tell she still believes still believes it was him who took me away from her in the first place." This part really annoyed me because after all these years she had to here such a sad story. I wish some thing happy would come into Riley's new life. another exampe of a sad part is on 122 again. It says "That night I try. To explain to stella why I cant believe dad gave me to the AGT. I tell her how he inflatrated the AGT guards where I was held, how he snuck me out of the room at night. That we ran across the sand to a boat. Then I tripped, and they caught us. Nico; the gun raised in his hands. Dad on the sand telling me to close my eyes, to never forget who I am. How I could'nt look away. How is eyes held mine as he died." I know this was a good example because nobody should ever have to here something like that. Hopefully the next part will be happier than the previous.
In the book "Auggie And Me," one thing that kind of annoyed me was that Maya give a mean note to Ximena. I found this annoying because if you don't have anything nice to say than you shouldn't say anything at all. Also this hurt Ximena's feeling and made her cry, Because Maya gave that note to Ximena that caused her to be put in the drama. This also mad me pretty annoyed because Maya didn't say anything like a "I'm sorry.'' This outcome was okay and now they are trying to become friends. This is just one one thing that got me upset and annoyed in the book," Auggie And Me."
One thing that surprised me in the book I am Number Four is when the narrator would get nervous, and his hands would start to glow. When he went into the hallway in the new school, Mark pushed the narrator into the wall and asked him for his phone. Mark did this because he was angry that the narrator was talking to the person he likes. When he walked by him later in the day, his hands started to glow. I found this surprising because when humans get nervous their heart starts to beat fast. Their hands don't start to glow. Another time when his hands started to glow was when he was going to ask for his phone after school. He did not want to get into a fight he just wanted his phone back. His hands started to glow so he put gloves on just in case. This was surprising to me because if my hands were glowing I would just ask Mark a different day. At the end of the day Sarah (who Mark likes) gave the narrator his phone back. These moments were surprising to me and I bet that the narrator was surprised when he learned that his hands glowed.
In my book the Land of Stories Beyond the Kingdoms there is something that has been really annoying me. In this book they are talking about a character named Hans. This character is taking a walk and suddenly he comes upon the Fairy Godmother. They keep talking to each other as if they have known each other forever. It aggravates me that they keep talking about this character and yet they have not said anything about how he knows the Fairy Godmother or their relationship. I think I am confused because it is only shortly after the beginning of the book.
In the book Legend one thing that annoys me is Day is so thankful for June for saving Tess, but he is the most wanted criminal in the Republic. One reason why I think this annoying is June so furious at Day for killing Mitas she thinks he is the worst person on earth. Another reason is Day used another person as a shield for bullets luckily he was not damaged. That proves Day is strong and careless. That's what really annoys me in my independent book.
One thing that has surprised me in the book Story Thief's is that Owen betrayed Bethany's trust. After Owen finds out that Bethany can go inside of books and is looking for her father inside those books, Owen agrees to keep her secret and maybe help find her father if she takes him into his favorite book. Bethany agreed thinking that maybe she had found a real friend. Little did she know that Owen was planning on saving his favorite character in the book despite the fact that Bethany had told him that he was not allowed to interact with any of the characters. Owen disobeyed her rule and saved his favorite character even though she almost considered him a friend. He had betrayed her trust. This had surprised me because I thought that he would listen and and help her. Even though he did this, he might come through in the end. I'll have to keep reading!
In my book "The Revenge Of Seven'' (Book Five of the "I Am Number Four '' Series). What suprised me is when Number five/The Traitor tried to help Ella/Number 10 (A number that shouldn't have even be alive) get off of the enemy ship (Mogadorians) (some how the mogs leader is suposed to be ellas grandfather)after five killed one of his own kind (accident) and now he is trying to help her get away from her evil grandfather.
