This is mad late due to crippling depression my motivation has been at 0 all week but i do not want to fail so I am going to put in some work now. I liked El Dorado quite a bit. It was good and at the time we were reading it i was not in the best mood so i liked it a little more because of that. I overall do like to write poems but not for other people to read. Like they are like strangely personal and like i do not want people to know my juice like that. Also i do not know what to write my poem about like i have to do a whole new one now and i just do not know a new topic. Like at my age i really have not experienced much like i feel like if i write about something too deep it will just be stupid and not real but if i write about something stupid i will hand in a dumb poem that you are going to judge anyway so i am really not sure. And like i guess i could write about something i do not like but then i am weird and sulky so i have no clue. I guess i could try to do Myles again but it did not work very well the first time because even though i love him there is only so much i material i have to write about a dog. Hopefully i can make up something good so i do not take to much heat.
So howdy y’all I have been working at AR for about 6 hours now mostly because my pea brain can’t focus for more than a solid 5 seconds I am gonna try my best to make another quality blog for yall so let us see. This masterpiece will be about The Sky is Everywhere by the lovely Jandy Nelson. The books follows Lennie through basically what is her journey of self discovery after the death of her sister. Now I do like Lennie but the whole book she made 110 problems for herself. I feel like in many of situations when was in were completely avoidable if she was trying to be a decent person. Let’s start off with the fact that she almost had sex with her dead and yes deceased sister’s fiance like what are you doing that is actually disgusting. And yes Toby was older and they were both going through a tough time but see a therapist or something like there are other ways to handle yourself. Now the whole time Lennie is making awful decisions with Toby she is leading on my man Joe. And let me tell you I love Joe he is the most beautifully broken boy. He is so darn precious and he cares about Lennie a lot he puts in a lot of work for her but she still manages to mess it up. Like sis you had the boy I do not understand. Then she went and played victim to Joe after he found out about her and Toby ( which she lied to him about inmore than one occasion) She broke Joe’s heart basically blamed it on the fact that she was going through a tough time. JOe had been through a lot and it is mad disrespectful for her to do him like that. Now don’t get me wrong I wanted them to get back together because I love that sappy mess but like real talk it would have been 100 percent valid if he dipped. Another thing she did was she snooped through her sisters stuff and wound up finding stuff about her missing mother which upset the whole family balance she had going on like why can you not just be happy with what you have you ingrate. Now I genuinely do like Lennie I think her and I are very similar both had a lot of self sabotaging tendencies and are very nosy. We both are also very big on the self pity train. Another thing i love about Lennie is the little poems she left everywhere. I think that was such a good way to develop her character and give us as a reader a direct look into what she was thinking and how she was feeling. Of course Joe was finding them and reading them which he was also using them to understand all the things she was going through. These poems ultimately lead to Joe forgiving her and them getting back together. My by far favorite thing about the book was the title. The title was taken from one of the poems Lennie wrote and it is basically saying that the pain of her losing her sister will never go away but she will carry it with her forever. I think it was a cute message and i love sweet stuff like that. Overall the book is pretty predictable but still very cute i cried like a small child at time but all in all it was a very good well written book but i would never expect less from the marvokus Jandy .
Let’s begin the goonery To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han follows 16 year-old Lara Jean Covey Song, who writes love letters to all the boys she is loved (if the title hasn’t already spoiled you on that) as a sort of way to get over them. Then she stores them in a hat box her passed mother gave her. All heck breaks loose once plot twist -the love letters are mailed out to all the boys.I really liked then cover which is one of the things that drew me to it I know people say “don’t judge a book by its cover” (whether that’s meant for people or not), but I mean, come on, it’s super pretty.I.This book deals with love, family, sisterhood, relationships of all kind, and past friendships. All in all the book was definitely a sappy girly kind of read. I found it so out-of-the-blue that Peter Kavinsky ended up driving by Lara Jean. It was kind of out of the blue I found it crazy how Lara Jean ended up “randomly” picking Peter K. to be her fake boyfriend: there were about 105 other dudes other guys walking down the hall at the time Josh confronted her with the love letter. What I also found crazy and stupid, was how Lara Jean just fell for peter she made fun of him but it was playful. She never really stood up for herself. And she let him be mad disrespectful to both her and her friend Josh. She also never really asked him about the times he was seen with Genevieve when they were pretending to be a couple. Like, do not deal with this! Whether it’s fake or not, why was she just allowing him to be disloyal to her which is no bueno. Oh, and Josh. One, after such a long time and after God-knows-how-much they’ve been through, perfect older sister Margot breaks up with him. And also, Lara Jean’s reaction wasn’t realistic. Neither was the family, who were all apparently in love with Josh. I would be like: “But why?” and “That’s completely stupid-have you not heard of a long distance relationship? If you really-apparently-‘loved’ him, why would you be doing this? JAnd Margot was a whole other story: bossy, unaccepting, she was mad rude to lara. And i have a sister so i know where its coming from but there is a difference from being caring and thats why you are hard to just being a buzzkill. Over all the characters were high key bronagh and did not change much at all. Margot is the good girl, Kitty is the cute little sister, Peter is the bad boy that was “different”, Josh is the super sweet boy next door.Lara Jean was pretty much the only character that i could find very relatable and was really the only one who had any good juice to her. The prologue and last chapter were by far the best in the whole book. But I think there were a lot of unresolved issues. I liked how Lara Jean went through all of the letters Peter gave her each day. The setting of the end of the book being New Years, and how there was a content feeling of everything being okay between Lara Jean and Josh was pretty cute. Now after reading that you’re probably thing Victoria loves that sappy garbage what is going on. But the juice is I couldn’t write long about why i liked it so here is all the negatives so i could at least get this sucker close to 600 words.
