    -Book > Jungle Love by Margaret Johnson / published by Cambridge
    -Why I chose the book > As an accompany with me on Valentine's Day.
    -Best Two Sentences(Paragraph) >
    1. You see, if there was an interesting, sexy man in the group, I wouldn't mind how often I had to listen to boring tour guides talking about people being sacrificed.
    2. Not I am saying to you that you should just accept any man who shows interest in you. No. You girls still need to be choosy; find yourself a GOOD man. I've always been choosy, but I've still been married three times.
    -Comment > I chose it just for killing time on Valentine's Day, but the story isn't very romantic; even its category shows 'romance.' Actually it's only a combined diary of two women, through their eyes describing the holiday by turns. But there are many good paragraphs and sentences describe the emotion of these characters, such like Lisa's embition, Jennifer's confusion... or maybe, just thanks to my imagination, it's not too boring.

    The sentence I found in page52 is quite interesting, according to the "Yankee cop", that's "Brits' perfect English":

    "Would I be right in thinking that you ordered Debrah Spencer's death?"

    It's a story for students in level B1. The story is extremely understndable. Enjoy it with you knee but your brain.

    The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot, published by Macmillan
    Actually, I've finished the book already, and I believe i can finish the next part of the series next week. It's just so FUNNY!HaHa!

    My favorite sentences:
    1) I will probably never have a growth spurt, at least not on my chest. (When i read the sentence i just bursted out laughing, but you should read the whole story to understand it.)

    2) Grandmere smokes all the time, even in bed, which is why Grandpere had these weird disposable oxygen masks installed in every single room at Miragnac, and had an underground tunnel dug that we could run through in case Grandmere fell asleep with a cigarette in her mouth and the chateau burst into flame.

    May I have a bonus if i read 4 English books myself while winter vacation?
    Acceleration, Breathing Underwater, Things Not Seen, Kissing the Rain
  • You got it. No problem. I'll give you a bonus of 4 points.

  • Julie of the wolves
    (by Jean Craighead George)

    p.1~p.50 of 170 pages

    As I was browsing all the books in the library last week, the book stirred my intrest beacause the introductory mentioned that it's a story happened in the Artic. Since I'm not familiar with the life in a Eskimo village, I believe the book can depict the living style in detail, and that must be interesting.

    (1)p.5
    The chilly air tingled her nose and she noticed that the cotton grasses by the ground were seeding out into white puffs. This was worrisome, for they marked the coming of autumn, the snows and the white-outs.

    (2)p.38
    Her hands trembled and her heartbeat quickened, a dull pain seized her stomach, for she was frightened, not so much of the wolves but because of her desperate predicament.

    Other good sentences:

    -Her black eyes, which slanted gracefully,were moist and sparkling.

    -Their heads cocked in curiosity.

    -Animals attack the fearful.

    -The frigid environment of the Artic has sculptured life into compact shapes.

  • Staying Together {80 pages}
    by Judith Wilson

    I picked it because of the romantic cover.

    My favorite sentences:

    1.Wherever I am want to be somewhere else.

    2.{He looked down at her in the hostel.} A silent question, a silent answer. {He closed the room door beside them and "something" happened at night.}

    3. It was the silence of two people trying to decide what to say to each other.

  • I, robot
    By Isaac Asimov
    p.1~32 of p.104

    I picked it because I want to see the move “I, robot”.
    Though , it was difficult to understand the scientific words, but it is really easy to read.
    I like “the three laws of robot”.

    1. Powell felt a sudden attack of fear.
    2. The air was beautifully cool.

  • The Princess Diaries:Take Two

    The Princess Diaries:Take Two
    P.1 ~ p.213(all)

    Favorite sentences

    1)I admit that Boris Pelkowski is a mouth-breather who continues to tuck his sweaters into his trousers despite my frequent hints that in America, this is considered a Glamour Don't.

    2) I guess it does make sense that you would tell someone whose tongue has been in your mouth things you wouldn't necessarily tell your best friend.

    I can't wait to see the third part of the series! But I think i read it too fast. I should read it slowlier and enjoy it thoroughly. Maybe I will start reading Hulk tomorrow.

    FAVORITE SENTENCES

    1. <<Not a day younger than eighty, thought Leigh, and she breathed a sigh of relief; there would be no stilettos clacking against the hardwood floors, no late-night parties, no parade of visitors stomping around.>>

    2.<<Her nerves were directly tied to the volume and frequency of the steady thump-thump-thump that segued into a thumpety-thump-thumpety-thump-thump pattern when Leigh's heart began to pound right along with it.>> She tried to breathe slowly, but her exhales were short and raspy, punctuated by little guppy gasps.

  • The Way Home
    by Sue Leather
    p.1~110 of 110 pages (finished)

    Both of title and the cover attract me at the very first sight. Also, the book consists of 8 different stories but somehow are the same in some ways, which I was very curious about!
    After finishing the book, I think the stories can be longer to express the full idea that the author want to talk about. It's sitll worth reading if you don't have much time!

    1) p.61
    Yeah, that was it, relief. It was the look you have when you find something precious you thought you'd lost, the look you have when someone you've been waiting for shows up at last, the look you have when, after a long search, you find cool, sweet water in the desert.

    2) p.82
    Love is a dangerous emotion, and it always happens when you're least expecting it. It creeps up on you and jumps on you out of the blue. It grabs you by the throat, shakes you and says, "I'm here! You'd better take notice of me!"

  • Digital Fortress(430 pages in total)
    By Dan Brown

    page 16~53

    1. In the interest of keeping their success a secret, Commander Strathmore immediately leaked information that the project had been a complete failure.
