Animal Dreams

My favorite quote from Animal Dreams so far is in Hallie's letter to Codi, "Jesus, Codi, how long are you going to keep limping around on that crutch?" I like this quote because Hallie is telling Codi to grow up and stop complaining about everything. Codie needs to realize that her life might be bad but its not as bad as a lot of other peoples lives. I think that Codi really needed to hear that from somebody. It even hits her harder when it came from Hallie.

My favorite character is Emelina. I like Emelina because she is a really good mom. She also good at making sure that Codi is included but also gives Codi some space. I think that she is good for Codi right now. She can show Codi what a good parent is, and also let Codi keep to herself. Overall, Emelina is my favorite character.

I think that the most important scene from the book is when Loyd and Codi are watching the Christmas dances on a rooftop. I fell like it is a important moment because they really connected and talked about important stuff. Codi got a close look at Loyd's childhood and beliefs. Codi got a different perspective on how she can look at the world.

Recent Read

I have recently read E. Lockharts The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks. I read this book just for a fun read. I liked this book, but I also found it a little bit confusing. It had some flashbacks but it also seemed like the whole book was a flashback. Overall the rest of the book was good.

My Favorite Book

My favorite book is Breaking Dawn by Stephanie Myer. Breaking Dawn is the fourth book in the Twilight series. In this book Bella and Edward get married and then go on their honeymoon on an island. Some surprising twists get thrown in when they think that all is good. While Edward and Bella are trying to deal with the surprises, Bella has to deal with her best friend, Jacob Black. I like this book because it keeps throwing surprises at you and you never know whats going to happen next. I highly recommend reading Breaking Dawn.
