Hopefully I'll get into a habit of making Journals, I plan on using this site for mostly journals.
So I've almost finished 13 Reasons Why by Jay Asher, good book and I recommend it. At times it was hard to read but it was well worth it. The story is about a boy named Clay who finds himself on a list of people that a fellow student named Hannah essentially blames for her suicide. Through a series of cassettes Hannah recounts her last year alive and the events that lead to her suicide and the people associated with those events. Clay listens partially to find out what he has to do with her suicide but also to find out more about Hannah, to better understand her in a way he didn't get to while she was alive.
I also turned in nine pages of chapter summaries for it today, still gotta come up with a project to turn in next Monday. For my next novel I think I'll do The Shining by Stephen King. I'm very fond of the movie but I'd like to learn and understand more about it and hopefully the book will elaborate on some of the mystery behind the Overlook Hotel.
This is going to be a long week.
