Hiya! So, yeah. Skipping the excuses and explanations now….but you’ll notice, my writing blog, A Notebook One Pen and Me has more quality posts, more frequently, and has new pages and a new theme that WordPress refers to as “Spirit”. I have recently been reading many books, but one that I have read quite recently is…

A Little Princess

Written by: Frances Hodgson Burnett

Summary: Sara Crewe is an intelligent and imaginative girl, left at Miss Minchin’s Select Seminary for Young Ladies as her father is needed for war. Her father makes sure that she is everything of a princess- beautiful dolls, a splendid room, and dresses of royalty. But suddenly, she is left penniless and is banished into the attic of this school where she must work for her living. If only she could still be a princess inside…

Rating: 4.8/5

Now,  that was a short post…but I didn’t want spoilers. So there you go. It is a really great book and I recommend reading it. If you’ve got any books you recommend, let me know in the comments or on this page. Don’t forget to check out my writing blog.

My wand contains:

Picture of wand
Black Walnut wood, a Unicorn hair core, it is 12 ¼” in length, and has Hard flexibility.

 

“Less common than the standard walnut wand, that of black walnut seeks a master of good instincts and powerful insight. Black walnut is a very handsome wood, but not the easiest to master. It has one pronounced quirk, which is that it is abnormally attuned to inner conflict, and loses power dramatically if its possessor practices any form of self-deception.”

From Pottermore.

My Ilvermorny house:

Pukwudgie

Represents the heart. Favours healers.

 

 

How about you? What’s your…

Hogwarts house?

Patronus?

Wand length?

Ilvermorny house?

A Notebook, One Pen, And Me

I know… I know… it has been a long time since my last post. I have been busy with schoolwork, which brings me to a point. We have been typing CEWs quiet often, and reading with meaning, thinking about characters, relationships, symbols… and more. In case you have no idea what a CEW is, it is simply, C for Claim, E for Evidence, and W for Warrant or why you think something. I have been doing my CEWs on Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Yes, I know. I have only started the series. But I have been enjoying the series.

Hello bookworms!
I am so happy that I am able to post even during my vacation. So I finished Letters From Camp  by Kate Klise, but right now I am using my dad’s computer and not mine so I have to be careful not to delete this site.

Anyways thanks for reading, and I’ll have a review ready for the book soon! Till then, please recommend your favorite books at this page on my website: Recommend A Book…

Thank you!

Start of August + I got a new book from the library!

Wow! It is already August! Hello bloggers!

I wasn’t able to post yesterday because I posted to my home blog: My Summer Blog to celebrate my 1 year blogging anniversary! Actually that is supposed to be on 5th August, however we are leaving for our travels so I thought to post early on my blog! You can go check that post out over at my summer blog.

Welcoming August, we all should be prepared to read more and for a good school year. So today from the library, I got the book Letters from Camp by Kate Klise to read as I thought that the back of the cover looked very interesting. I am not sure if I will able to post when I am away, but if I am, after I finish reading the book, I’ll post a review, or when I come back.

Welcome August and enjoy your vacations if you are going somewhere! Be sure to let others know in the comments where you are going and when you get back, how did you like it.

Bye for now everyone and remember to keep reading!
