Teens to Teens Reading Project Post 21

Hi Everyone! I have accomplished a lot since the last time I have blogged. First, I have written the book review for Tessa & Scott Our Journey from Childhood Dream to Gold and I hope to have this posted on my website within the next week. I am excited to finally be putting this review up on my site because Tessa and Scott have personally inspired me and I want others to read this book and also be inspired. In addition, I hope to include some pictures and a video of Tessa and Scott in the book review. Furthermore, I still have yet to write a book review for The Great Gatsby but I will write this review as soon as I can.

In my last blog post, I mentioned that I have made flyers advertising my website. I unfortunately did not have time to put these up at my local library, but I plan to have these put up when I am off for spring break. I will also be researching the flyer policies at my school and see if I am able to also put the flyers up around my school. I hope that by putting up flyers, teens will be more likely to know about my website and I can hopefully attract a large audience to my website. As I've said before, teenagers need to see that they are capable of going after their dreams and doing something with them.

As well, the United We Spy book review has finally made it to my website. You can visit and read about one of my favorite book series or leave a comment directly on the book review or via the contact form to share your opinion with me. I encourage anyone to do this, as I would love to hear what your thoughts are about my reviews, website, and the books themselves.

Therefore, because I have finished reading The Great Gatsby and Tessa & Scott Our Journey from Childhood Dream to Gold, I am ready for a new book. This time I have chosen The Mortal Instruments City of Bones.  The book has already been made into a movie and later this summer the second book is supposedly, also, being made into a movie. But, I choose this book because I haven’t read any fantasy books in a while. I am currently on page 203 out of 485 pages. So far, the book is really good. I enjoy the story line about demon hunters trying to track down the bad guy; and the characters are all so fabulous. I absolutely love their quirks and most of their personalities. I cannot wait to read more about this book and share it with you.

And that’s all. I am working on my TEDx talk and will have it written before the end of this month. I have also been thinking about adding some new features to my website, but for now I am going to keep those ideas a surprise. Please keep checking out my website for new reviews and content and as always, thanks for reading!


Above is the video I will be attaching to my review about Tessa and Scott. 
It gives a really good over view about their lives and skating career together. 

Above is the movie trailer for City of Bones book to give you an idea of the story. 


  1. Jackie,

    It is inspiring to see how far you have come since you started your project. What's even more exciting than everything you've already done is the focus and determination you have to keep going. Even from just reading your blog, I can tell how much drive you have and your organization shows through when you describe the direction you want to go in next (hanging the flyers, getting more readers involved, listing the books you will review next, etc.) Great work! You're an inspiration!



    1. Thanks so much for your support, Becca! It means a lot to me that you still read my blog posts every two weeks. I cannot wait to share with you more about the progress I've made in this project.
