My Favorite Books

I love reading.  Sometimes, I run out of new things to read, but then when I open a new book, I become absorbed in it once more.  I have multiple favorites that I have read and reread again.  Listed, are some books that passionate readers might enjoy.

  • “Harry Potter”

I enjoy the “Harry Potter” series due to J.K Rowling’s’ ability to create suspense and make the stories seem so realistic.

  • “The Chronicles Of Narnia”

“The Chronicles Of Narnia” involve adventure as well as trouble and the books are very enjoyable to read due to the style of writing.

  • “The Lost Track Of Time”

In “The Lost Track Of Time”, time slips away from Penelope and she goes on an adventure that puts her to the test.

  • “Turtle In Paradise”

This Newbery Honor Book, in my opinion, rightfully earned the award due to Jennifer Holm’s ability to entice the reader.

  • “The War That Saved My Life”

“The War That Saved My Life” takes place in the midst of World War II and involves a young girl’s determination in the war.

Just A Cute Video…

I made this video for my Mom to remind her of her memories about her kids which include my older brother Brendan, me, Maggie, and my 2 little brothers, Grayson, and Fin.

A Take On Frere Jacques

Short Ekphrastic Poems

  1.   My dull, colorless, eyes display the trail of tears left once upon them.  No matter how vivid the world could be, I see it in 1000 shades of gray.  The wind blows hard against my frigid body, making me feel even darker inside.  It is indubitable that this fall can be overcome.  The only thing that I have is darkness.

2.  The frosty snow was opaque, as I saw it fall against my window pane.  PLICK! PLICK!  I rushed to the window, wondering what was happening.  I saw hail droplets, the size of pennies, scattered in between the frequent snow flurries.  What a great day to spend by the warm, crackling, fireplace, snuggled up in my pajamas, reading “Chicken Noodle Soup for the Soul”.
