I'm Laura =) I have two eyes, dark brown dyed hair with bangs, lots of black clothing, and half an English degree even though I'm no longer going to school for that. I believe in karma and the power of positive thinking. I try to be thankful for everything I have, and give back when I can. I think art and music are therapeutic and can heal the soul, and sometimes a good harmony makes me cry. I have 5 nieces and nephews that I refer to as my babies who are my heart. I want to get a tattoo that says "Holy the supernatural extra brilliant intelligent kindness of the soul" from Howl by Allen Ginsberg. I wish that I was better at understanding literature. I'm horrible at saving money, and I get distracted easily and leave projects unfinished a lot. I love to travel and there are a million places in the world I want to see. I have a fondness for the morbid macabre and am far too enthused with criminology. I think glasses are undeniably sexy, pretty much no matter what, no matter who is wearing them, and when I was little, I always wished that I had to wear them. I keep most of my photos in a high contrast, and I eat every spoonful of ice cream in two separate bites.
Hey, I need some help! For my Children's Lit final, I need to read 5 children's chapter books, about the 5-7th grade level, and write a report on the authors. So please, my resources are running dry. Tell me your favorite books from middle school? We've already read (there for I can't use) these books in class:
Holes Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH Tuck Everlasting The Alchemist Where the Red Fern Grows Bridge to Terebithia
And in terms of finding my own novels to read and report on, I'm doing:
How to Train Your Dragon A Series of Unfortunate Events (and possibly) Beastly
But yeah, tell me your favorite middle school aged books =) I would very much appreciate all opinions!
