Progress

Good news! I finished the book Arcadia Falls, which I was stuck on this book for about 3 weeks.. I'd say I made a lot more progress on books I've read this 9 weeks than I did the last 9 weeks, which is awesome. One thing I've noticed as these 9 weeks come to an end is that I read book series much quicker than I do with individual books. A reason I think this might be is because in series of books, I feel more obligated to continue the story and hastily move on to the next book. And more often than not, I find myself enjoying the story more if I am reading books from a series.

For my AP book that I read, I decided to read the Lord of the Flies, which I thought to be an interestingly unique story to me. Lord of the Flies takes place in a time period where the world is in war, and the story is about a group of young boys of varying ages who are left on a deserted island after their plane had crashed. And oddly enough, no females, or adults were left on the island with them. Wi…

A Setback

My progress in reading books this past week hasn't been doing quite as well as I thought it would.. I've been trying to keep up with my night time reading but sadly I've missed a weekend worth of reading (I was out of town visiting my cousins during our long 4 day weekend). Not only did I lose 4 days worth of reading time, but I also had quite a stressful week due to tests and assignments(ugh) that have been bombarding me these past school days. On the other hand, the days that I did get to read before bed, I noticed that I was able to fall asleep faster and earlier than I usually do! I don't know if its the relaxation I get from reading, or because of the book I'm reading, but I seem to get drowsy reading right before bed.

I've also traveled deeper into the book I'm currently reading, Arcadia Fallsby Kai Meyer. Arcadia Falls is a fiction book that has a Sicilian setting and is filled with shape-shifters and ancient Arcadian history. The story is about the …

My Relationship With Books

Hi stranger, welcome to my reading blog! Let me tell you about myself. My name is Anndy (yes, with two Ns) Nguyen, and I'm a student who currently attends Hebron High school. I've been a gamer ever since I was a child and I enjoy playing video games with friends. To be honest, I don't read as much as I should, and because of that, I don't read as fast as other people do. I don't have a real good reason as to why I don't read often, I just simply am more attracted to other activities than I am to  reading books. Other than that reason, on days I have large amounts of schoolwork, I don't have the motivation to find the time for squeezing in books. I know how bad it is that I'm not reading a good amount everyday, so I'm trying my best to read more for the sake of my education. Fighting!

My goals for this 9 weeks is to read at least 5 books. I'm already reading about 20 minutes a day for independent reading time in my English class, and I think I sh…
