Literary Olympics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Week 8:
by write4porsche on Youth Read 2012 - 0 Comment(s)

Well, well, well. Quite a fine olympics this is. With the dauntlessness of Team Dauntless, down to earth strength of Team Middle Earth, skills of Team Monsea, determination of Team Panem, and epic magic of Team Hogwarts, this is a games like never seen before. As we survey our competitors, we are immediately drawn to Team Panem, who have been said as high competitors, with their amazing scores during the Hunger Games. However, the games are beginning, and it seems the attention is leaning towards Team Hogwarts. With their magic, they have won every event so far!!! It is quite incredible, unlike any results we have witnessed in the history of the Olympic games. Now, here comes archery, the most anticipated event this year! Oh, it came close, and the results are being checked for the 7th time. OMG! At last, a team has broken the winning streak of Team Hogwarts. Harry, Hermione, Ron, Ginny, Neville, and Luna are devastated as they examine the scores for the 713th time! Team Panem has claimed a gold medal for archery, thanks to the unbeatable skills of Katniss Everdeen, the girl on fire! 

 

Well, well, well. It has been a wonderful olympics, and we are pleased to announce the overall standings! Team Hogwarts has received all gold medals due to their outstanding skills in magic, except for the single opposing gold, which was won by Team Panem! Other highlights include the silver going to Team Panem in both wresting and weightlifting, from the tremendous efforts of Peeta. However, once again, levitation charms brought Hogwarts to the top.

 

Welll, well, well. It's time to sign off, but make sure to check back for the next literary olympics!

It's the End of the World!- The Dystopia Craze

Week 11: Non-Fiction, End of the World or Read
by NinjaaWriter on Youth Read 2012 - 0 Comment(s)

Do you like dystopia? Why or why not?

I LOVE dystopia!!! It is one of my favourite genres. I enjoy reading dystopia because it makes you think about so many things. Dystopic books are very thought-provoking, and provide interesting scenarios that make you want to know more. All the dystopian books I have read are very engaging because they are filled with action, and make you ask many questions in your head. Go dystopian books! :)

 

Of all of the dystopic books you have read, which 'end of the world' scenario do you think is the most realistic?

I'm going to have to go with Uglies, by Scott Westerfeld. Somehow it doesn't surprise me that humans (or the Rusties) would be the ones to destroy our own world. We need to be more careful with what we do with our world. 

 

Why do you think people are obsessed with the end of the world?

Probably because, as the challenge stated, so many end of the world predictions are going on right now. Because of the way we treat our world, I think some people are so intrigued because it could happen at any time. Plus, it's an interesting concept. Think about it: what would actually happen if the world did end?

 

What is your favourite dystopia novel?

I am planning on reading many more dystopic novels (Matched, Blood Red Road, the Maze Runner, and currently reading Insurgent), but the book I enjoyed most was the Uglies quartet by Scott Westerfeld. AMAZING BOOKS, by the way. I also really enjoyed the Hunger Games and Divergent. They're all great!

Heaven is For Real- Non-Fiction Book Review

Week 11: Non-Fiction, End of the World or Read
by NinjaaWriter on Youth Read 2012 - 0 Comment(s)

Heaven is For Real by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent

    I admit, I am not really one for non-fiction books. I personally prefer something that allows me to… imagine more. However, this was a book I really enjoyed.

    “Heaven is for Real” told the story of four-year-old Colten Burpo, who became fatally sick with a burst appendix. The doctors said he was likely going to die. No one really had much hope left. Until he miraculously started to get better, and began recounting to his parents everything he experienced when he “died” and went to heaven. 

    This was a very thought-provoking read. It made me think about heaven, and all the amazing things Colten was able to remember and recount. He even told his parents about seeing family members (that he had never seen before in his life) that had long since passed away in heaven, and was able to describe them exactly. It truly is an incredible story, and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in this type of a book.
