I didn’t anticipate I’d have so much to say about each archetype, so now I give you… Part 2.5 of 2 The Archetypes Continued Warrior/ Hero As you might imagine the warrior is a person who is good at battle and fighting. Prime examples of this in LOTR are Gimli, Legolas, Boramir, and more. They are expert fighters, (and if you watch the movies…beyond reason when fighting the Warg). Eowyn, “I am no man!” But if you think outside the normal boring box, you might also consider characters like Eowyn. She fought in the end and defeated the Witch-King of Angmar, speaking the best line ever written!
This week has been Crazy with a capital C! Exam week at my middle school. Grades had to get finished and turned in. Kids were excited about the break. Oh so much fun! I’m sure your week was just as crazy. So needless to say I didn’t get First Page Friday up on Friday. Can’t … Continue reading First Page Friday: Game Changer
My students raved about this book. They are so excited that the last book in this trilogy is coming out this fall. I had to read it and see if it was worth all the hype.
I saw this on NetGalley and snatched it up based solely on the author, Orson Scott Card. After I downloaded it I looked at the description. It actually sounded like an interesting plot idea too. I devoured the book. This ARC is in a kind of rough state, so I half wonder if the cover might change. have another book that is in much better shape and it is not set to release until October of this year. This one comes out in September. Hopefully! Professional Reader Lost and Found by Orson Scott Card First imagine that you can see something lying on the ground like a scrunchy, and just know where the owner is so you can return it. Cool, right? Not for Ezekiel, who was repeatedly accused of stealing the very thing he was returning! Nobody wants to be friends with a thief. So now, he just tries to ignore the things he finds. Beth, a really short high school kid, enters his life, wanting to be his friend, and stubbornly refuses to leave him alone no matter how rude he is to her. Finally a cop comes and asks for his help in finding a little girl. Yeah, AFTER cops spent his whole life accusing him of stealing, NOW they want his help! Right! He learns he is not the only one with micropowers. He is invited to a group of others like him that have pretty useless minor little powers. Like the ability to make someone yawn. So, no, not cool like the X-Men.
