Reading Tweet #2

#engchat #mbedu #readingtweet

This week’s Reading Tweet is slightly different from last week.  Once again you will be composing 5 tweets about your reading on Friday, but this week you must include at least three of the following hashtags in your tweets, in a meaningful way:


Your first tweet should once again introduce your book and current page of reading:

Where’d U Go Bernadette (123) My #favquote so far “Hello, can I help you with something?  If not please step aside because I’m going to kick the **** out of life” (100)

And your subsequent quotes will include questions, comments, and/or predictions, as well as content related to the above mentioned hashtags:

!- Love how the above quote shows the chutzpah Bernadette used to have. Clearly something has changed. But what? #prediction

“If you don’t create, Bernadette, you will become a menace to society” She already is! I think this is one reason for her lost chutzpah. #comment #bigidea

This book is written like a puzzle, Bee is collecting the e-mails, paperwork and personal accounts that document her mother’s breakdown #writingstyle

Bernadette has outsourced a PA from India.  I think the PA becomes and important part of the plot, b/c she has access to lots of B’s personal info #foreshadowing

Don’t forget to post your tweets in the comment section of this post! All tweets should be posted by tomorrow.  You will also need to check back by mid week to add your replies to your classmates posts.

  1. Honestly, I didn't enjoy this book as much as I wanted to. I also tried reading Jay's Journal, but I couldn't keep interest. I've heard that it wasn't actually written by a teenager and it was written by a doctor (it's cause multiple debates and controversies).

    I think it's just because I don't like reading books in journal form. Let me know if you do end up reading Jay's Journal!

  2. #Title The curse of the bambino(20)

    The goal was to win championships with the group of guys they had left #BigIdea

    Never make a decision without knowing the possiblities of it backfiring #lifelesson

    #BostonBaseball Baseball has always been the way of life in Boston from the early 1900s and the creation of fenway park was the biggest thing to happen for baseball fans, and players.

  3. I really want to tell you why everything is how it is! But then it'll ruin the whole book, aghhhh.

    Let's just say that Jack hasn't left the room, so he doesn't have friends/people to interact with. The objects are the closest things to friends he has.

  4. #title Tex by SE Hilton (60)

    Tex(60) “Some people go, some people stay. I'm staying.” #quotes

    Always Stay strong#lifelesson

    #Tex was published in 1979 and it was an adapted as a movie in 1982! fun facts

  5. 1. Time of my Life (117) I find it's hard to get into this story as I am not at the same life stage as the protagonist. #tooyoungtounderstand

    2. I predict Jill won't be able to chnage the outcome of her present life, it will happen either way #prediction #bigidea

    3. I like how Jill is writing letters about her present life during the story it keeps us connected to both timelines of her life #writingstyle

    4. Definition of adage? A short statement expressing a general truth #neverknewthat

    5. Given the chance would you go back in time and do it over again? Seems easer to just fix the present and leave the past #timetravel #discuss

  6. I find it interesting that the book is in the format of poetry and yet you say its an easy read. Usually I find poetry a difficult read for me, so I'm just curious. I may have to give this book a try!

  7. The Lord of the Rings (266) my #favquote” They saw a snake coiling itself to strike”

    ! The quote ^, they might be in trouble and might have to fight Surman. #prediction

    I don’t know why they are getting under Surman skin? He has a short temper and he is very powerful #comment #conflict

    This book is kind of hard to understand at points since they talk so different back than sometimes I have to look up the words I don’t know. #writingstyle

    I think that this book is amazing! I love both the movie and the book. What do you guys like? #bookormovie #discuss

  8. Divergent (112) book is getting super addicting, having a hard time putting it down, lots of fights and suspense #conflict
    How many days have passed in the book so far? How many more people are going to die? #questions #curious
    I don’t like how Peter is so mean, mostly his attitude and how he beat up Beatrice during the fight even though he had to, but there’s always going to be a bad guy somewhere #sad
    I think Tris (Beatrice) and Four are going to end up having a relationship of some sort, you can already feel something between them #prediction #romance
    Is it better to take big risks like Beatrice did or to play it safe and stick you what you’re used to? I would say to take risks #lifelesson

  9. -Leaving Dirty Jersey(130) James Salant #title

    -make smart choices,your life depends on it #lifelesson

    -severely addicted to meth James declines attending rehab #conflict

    the addict finds love in a hopeless place, Mya almost as lost as him #love

    -James captures the audience by writing about his own terrifying experience #writtingstyle

  10. Looking for Alaska: (30) Miles just got “freshied” by the weekend warriors, but it wasn't just a typical harmless prank #intro

    ?- What did Chip do to the w.w's to make them so mad to do that to Mile's just for being friends with Chip? #question

    “My thoughts are stars I cannot fathom into constellations” #quote #johngreen #tfios

    I'm finding it a lot harder to get into Looking for Alaska then it was to get into tfios. Hope it picks up! #comment

    A lot of people have told me that they enjoy L4A a lot more than tfios, I can't wait to find out why, but it's just so slow #losingintrest

  11. Burned (35) is a pretty good book so far. Not too far into it yet, but the title has got me thinking of ideas of events to come already #title

    I don't understand how “A” is everywhere the girls are? Maybe “A” isn't just 1 person, maybe “A” is a team of people? #bigidea #theAteam

    “The liars better tighten their life jackets. A perfect storm is brewing & if they aren't careful, “A” will bury them at sea…” #favquote

    “A” has so much dirt on the girls, yet does nothing? Why? #comment

    I think Aria and a fire are gonna be linked up in this book because she is on the cover & the title is called “Burned”. #prediction #thought
