The book I choose to read is titled Heartless by Marissa Meyer. The story is, of course, a romance novel if you know me you know I seldom read anything else. The main character Cath really has a rough life,  her parents don’t support her dreams. I think this is very applicable to the real world. In today’s society, it is hard to find the balance between doing what you love and doing something so you can make money. Many people go to work every day but are not truly happy with how they live. Cath, for example, wants to be a baker but her parents told her it wasn’t a very queen like occupation so she is not allowed. Another problem Cath is facing that I feel like is very real world applicable is the fact that she is was willing to marry a King just because he was nice and yet again she does not want to disappoint her parents I think this is very sad. Children should be able to live and make their won descsions ( to some extent) without having to worry about what their parents are going to say and how they will feel about it. I feel as though many parents want what is best for their child so much that they will put a damper on their child’s life in hopes they will get there. As to what I think will happen at the end of the book I already know. As a rule, I always start a story by reading the last page first this way if at any point I do not like the ending I can stop reading. In addition the story is about how the queen of hearts became the queen of hearts so after Mr. Burell told me that I figured something tragic would happen and when after reading the inside cover and seeing she find a love interest I figured he would die. And as I found out by reading the last page first Jest ( her love interest) does indeed die. This is not really surprising though I think the author really could have done better to make it more

This is a story all about how toms life got flipped, turned upside down

I actually found the story The Devil and Tom Walker to be quite enjoyable. I am not one for anything in the horror genre so I was very surprised that I liked it. That being said I did find the story a little hard to follow. I believe that this is due to the time that the story was written in. Some of the words and the phrasing were unlike how we speak today and that made it a little bit difficult to keep up with. Also unlike today writers in the past used a lot more symbolism which also contributed to my confusion because there were many subtle things that would have helped my understanding that went right over my head and were not pointed out until class discussion. The story was not like anything I have read before. I personally prefer softer types of stories such as romances and coming of age stories and tend to stay away from the darker horror and mystery side of reading. I think Irving wrote this story to talk about both how corrupt people can be and how all karma comes back. Every one of the rich men in Tom’s town made deals with the devil to obtain the success they reached, but in the end, they got what was due. The devil came and took their souls to hell. This could be compared to how today people say that famous and wealthy people “sold their souls”. I personally wouldn’t change all that much about the story because I feel as if that you were to change the dialogue and language of the text you would also have to change the time period and I think if that were to happen the story would not have the same effect on the reader. But if I had to choose one thing I would replace some of the words with ones that are slightly more modern not enough to change the feel but enough to get the message across without me googling words every paragraph. Overall I did enjoy the story and will most definitely read it again.



whew chile… the notes

To start off notes in American Lit. we did notes on short stories. For me personally it wasn’t to much new information besides the word Milieu which has already become a pain in the butt. Also we learned about Aristotle’s Ethical Imperative which I thought was pretty interesting. Especially because he is a philosopher and nothing he ever published would leave the reader where they where before they started reading. But other than that a lot of the notes was review of what we have learned before just a broken up more. It does not really change how I felt about any story I have read, but it did make me think about it more if that makes sense. I personally think the difference between observing and being an active participant in a story is how involved and connected you get to the characters. I personally get attached to people fairly quickly so when I am reading or watching something I find myself really rooting for some characters but hating others. We have taken a lot of notes over the years but the way we have done them in Lit has been different than I have ever had to take them before which is going to take some getting used to. Giving me the option to follow along or not but still having the info. is risky stuff for me because I know myself and if I am not in a good mood I might neglect to pay attention at all. Other than that its been a lot of fill in the blank in my other classes. This week has been a lot better than the last. School is going slow at the moment but I know that it will be June in the blink of an eye. I am really just hoping for a good fun year in which i get some good grades. ( I am not holding my breath on either of those things. I might die waiting) I am going to just try to just enjoy it you only get to go to High School once so why not make the best of it I guess. http://https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjj_ePu4p3dAhUQnOAKHbx3A50QjRx6BAgBEAU&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ohsocynthia.com%2F2016%2F05%2Freal-housewives-of-dallas-memes-episode-4.html&psig=AOvVaw2iiO-Dc9G7cLRNYBhAN6-N&ust=1536027534130284
