Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Hello bookworms!! I have finally finished Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix!!!!

Rating:

Blurb about book:

When Dementors attack Harry potter’s cousin Dudley, Harry is worried that Voldemort will soon find him.  Harry is forced to let Professor Snape to teach him how to close his mind before Voldemort gets into his mind. Will he be able get control of his mind or will it be too late?

My Opinion:

Wow….. I don’t know what to say. All I could say is that this is the BEST BOOK EVER!!!! It always kept me hanging for more and  everything was described and written perfectly. The only problem I have with the book is that it is TOO LONG. It has 800 pages! This was the longest book I have ever read. Really other than That it was amazing. I just wished that I could have read more books this month. It looks like the next Harry Potter book will be shorter so I probably be able to read two books next month. I hope you enjoyed reading My review. My brother Gavin has just finished reading Dragon Dreamer so I will be putting that up next. Happy Blogging!!!

This or That hosted by Bookmark Chronacles

Hey bookworms, sorry I haven’t been blogging lately. I have been so busy!!! I have been reading Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix!!! I will be posting it soon. I would like to thank Bookmark Chronicles for letting me host this with her. Every Monday I will be posting two different scenarios or characters. Then on Friday I will announce which scenario (or character) was liked and voted the most. I think you will really enjoy this one.

Would you rather own your own book store

                     Or…

Or get paid to read

I would love to get paid to read since my parents only give me two dollars a week, but I think I would love to own my own book store. What would you pick?

Jordan’s short story!!! (That is me)

I have done my brothers and now it is my turn. This story is a bit more realistic:D I hope you enjoy it!!!

“Mom, why do I have to take care of my cousin?” I said frustrated. The last time I babysat him he ate all of the cake and blamed it on me. After that I was grounded for a month. “Oh sweety I have to work, you can take care of him.” she said walking out the door. “Please mom, I really don’t want to do this. He got me in trouble last time. He ate the cake not me!” I said yelling at my mom. “We already got over this Jake is a good boy, he would never in a million years eat that cake.Now your Aunt will be here any minute so get ready. You still have your pyjamas on!” After saying that she shut the door.

   “Man, come on!” I said stomping up the stairs and into my room. I quickly got dressed and went downstairs. Right when I plopped on the couch I heard the doorbell ring. I got up and answered it. Right in front of me was my Aunt, skinny and with long dark hair. Next to her was my pesky cousin Jake. He looked a lot like my uncle, sandy blond hair with green eyes. “Hi Aunt Marti!” I said trying to sound enthusiastic. “ Hey darling, Have fun taking care of Jake!” I looked at Jake and he stuck his tongue at me. “I will!” I lied. I let Jake in and shut the door.

    I am going to have so much fun! I thought sarcastically. “Can I talk to you for a minute.” He looked like he was sad about something. His big green eyes made me feel bad for him. “What’s wrong?” I asked sitting on the couch next to him. “Can we talk about it in your laundry room?” It sounded like he really liked the room. “Sure, I guess?” I said muttering.  Why does he want to do it in the laundry room? I thought. “I don’t remember the way. Can you lead me there?” he questioned. “Sure, okay.” Now It sounded very suspicious, but those green eyes made it convincing. I went upstairs and he followed me into the hall. I found the laundry room and went in, but he did not follow. He shut the door in my face. Then I heard a click.

He locked me in! I thought shocked. “You let me out of here right now.” I yelled. “No way, I am going to call all of my friends and we are going to have a party. Ha Ha Ha” he said adding an evil laugh. I looked through the keyhole and I saw him do a victory dance.

This is just great! I thought. I started walking back a forth, thinking of. how to get out of this mess. “Oh!!” I screamed. On the floor was a nail. I kicked it and and it hit the washing machine. I sat down and ran my hands through my hair.

“Hello it’s me Jake. I am having a party at my cousin’s place, want to come?” Jake said talking to one of his friends on the phone. That’s it! I can call my mom! I walked up to the washing machine and saw the home phone there. My brother left it there the other day. I dialed my mom’s number and waited for her to answer. It took a while until I heard her say “Honey, I am at work! What do you need?”

Mom, Jake locked me in the laundry room! I was lucky to see the home phone in here.” I said. “Yeah right, how can he put you in the laundry room. I think you trick me into thinking this because you are in trouble for eating that chocolate cake. That cake was for dad’s birthday!” She was very irritated now. “”Jake smudged it on my face right when you came home!” I said angrier than ever. I can here my mom saying still not believing me, then she said “”I will be home early at two o’clock. I need to get back to work. I will see you when I get home”. After saying that she hung up.

I put the phone down and huffed. When will she ever believe me? All of a sudden an idea popped in my brain. Mom is going to be home early, but Jake doesn’t know that! I thought excitedly. I picked up the phone and checked the time. It was one o’clock. “She will be home in an hour.” I mumbled silently.

This was the long hour. There was loud music, banging dishes, and a lot of chatting but I finally I heard the front door open. The chatting and the music stopped. “oh my gosh! Jake what are you doing?Why are all these games and snacks out? Oh!” Mom screeched. “And broken glass!”

“I didn’t do it!” I hear my cousin say. “And all of these kids, get out of my house, out!” I hear a click and the door opens. I see my mom, she is clutching her foot because she stepped on broken glass. “I am so sorry!” she walked up and hugged me. “I should have believed you. So Jake really did eat dad’s birthday cake.” Mom looked at me guiltily. “Yes he did, you grounded me for a whole month!” I said happily. Finally mom trusts me!

We went down stairs into the kitchen. Jake was sitting at the table, crying loudly. We sat next to him and mom said “You are in big trouble young man and I will make sure your mom knows about this. You will be cleaning this mess until this is spotless. I expected more from you. You framed Jordan for eating the cake and you locked her in the laundry room, not to mention having a party in my house! Do you have something to say to us?”

Sorry Jordan, Sorry Aunt Ju Ju.” he said mumbling. “ We forgive you, now clean up this mess.” Mom said tensely.

Jake got up and started cleaning. He didn’t get down until his mom got here. For about an hour mom explained what happened and the whole time my Aunt was looking at Jake angrily. “Thank you for your time, I will make sure Jake will have a huge punishment.” Aunt marti said as she was walking out the door. Right when she and Jake left Dad pulled up into the driveway.

“Hi dad!” I said excitedly. “Hey princess, Wow this room is clean!” Dad put down his briefcase and looked around. “Yes we made sure of that. Jake had a party and locked Jordan in the laundry room. She didn’t eat the cake and we grounded her for a month!” mom cried. “I feel bad, I am really sorry. Is there anything we can get you? We owe you.” Dad said with a guilty look in his eye. “My own phone?” I asked. We all laughed.

The end!

My other brother Masen’s short story

This is my older brother Masen’s short story.  My mom published a picture book about him called My Brother”s Name is Masen. If you have not read it go get it on Amazon. It is a very cute story that will warm your heart to bits! I hope you like Masen’s short story. He even added me in it!!  If you don’t know my name is Jordan:D

One day I was watching a movie until I heard my cellphone ring. I grabbed the T.V. remote and pressed the pause button. Then I grabbed and answered the phone. It was my friend, Michael.

“Hey,” I answered. “How’s it going?”

“I’m doing awesome!!!”

“Yikes!”

After Michael yelled, it scared me and I almost dropped the phone.

“Of course you’re doing awesome,” I said. “You are always doing awesome! Now, what do you want?”

“I’m going on a trip in the woods,” Michael answered. “but my little brother, Robert can’t go. So, I thought that maybe you could take care of him for a couple hours.”

“Sure, no can— wait a second, who did you say?”

“Robert.”

“You mean Robert DeNeiro!?”

“Uh………….yes?”

“But I can’t look after him!”

“Why?”

“Well, there are two reasons why. One: his name sounds really weird and two: he threw me in the trash can last week!”

“Even if his name is ‘Robert’ it doesn’t mean his last name is ‘DeNeiro’!”

“Yes it does!”

“See you in a half an hour, okay?”

“But—” before I finished my sentence,Michael hung up.

What am I going to do? I don’t the same thing happen like last week. I needed to think of a plan. It took me a long time to figure it out until I finally knew what to do.

Later I heard the doorbell ring. I opened the door and it was Michael and Robert standing in front of me.

“Hey,” I said.

“Alright, Robert,” said Michael. “I am going to leave now, take care.”

“Okay,” answered Robert. “Bye!”

As soon as he closed the door, Robert turned and grinned at me.

“Don’t even think about it!” I yelled at him. “I hid the trash can and locked my room so there is nothing you can do about it.Ha!”

Robert still grinned at me and threw me in the closet and locked me.

“You seriously had to throw me in the closet, Robert DeNeiro!?” I yelled.

“Yes and how many times do I have to tell you? My last name is not ‘DeNeiro’!!!” Robert yelled at me back.”Now I can do anything I want in your house and there is nothing you can do about it! Ha!”

A few hours later Robert was eating popcorn, watching movies, playing video games, and making messes all over the place.

But while he was playing, I hid a security camera in the playroom. My brother Gavin and my sister Jordan were still in the house. They were part of my plan. Both of them snuck closer to Robert then Jordan held on to him to make sure he doesn’t cause anymore trouble while Gavin stopped the video on the security camera and unlocked me from the closet.

“Thanks, Gavin,” I said.

“Put me down,” yelled Robert.

“No!” Jordan yelled back at him. “As soon as Michael gets home, you are going to be in so much trouble!”

When Gavin looked out the window he saw Michael park his car in the driveway.

“See,” Gavin called. “there he is now.”

As soon as Michael walked through the door he saw the huge disaster in our house.

“Dang! What happened here!?” Michael asked us.

“Robert did it and we’ve got proof,” Jordan answered as she gave the evidence to him. Michael saw the whole video and looked back to us.

“See!?” Gavin asked.

“Sorry I didn’t believe you guys,” answered Michael as he turned back to Robert. “You are in big trouble! Come on, let’s go home.”

As soon as they left all three of us celebrated now that Robert is gone.

“Now that’s what I’m talking about!” I said as soon as we did a victory dance.

Short story by my brother Gavin!!!

My brother Gavin made this short story for a school project and I will be publishing mine soon. He begged me to put it on the blog so I decided to do it. Get ready for a funny commedy by my twin brother Gavin:D

“Great! Billy Bob Joe locked me in the closet again!” I yelled, trying to find a way to pick the lock.

“Even though my first name is Billy and my surname is Joe, doesn’t  mean my middle name is Bob!” Billy Bob Joe yelled back.

I ignored the comment, still trying to find  something to pick. In the closet, there were laundry machines, a cabinet, a sink, and a door that lead to the backyard.

The door that lead to the backyard, I thought. He won’t see it coming! But what to use to pick the lock…

I looked around the closet finding something to help.

…:…:…:…:…:…:…:…:…:…

“Yes, I finally win!” Billy Bob Joe yelled. “Now, I get to play videogames all day, and Gavin won’t be here to stop me!”

…:…:…:…:…:…:…:…:…:…

I could hear him from the closet, I thought. It’s a good thing I hid security cameras in the house. He thinks they’re just ‘big, black, bubbly thingies’ for decoration, but they’re really security cameras.

“Yes!” I said to myself. “I finally found it”.

It was the light bulb.

Now I know what you’re thinking- how do you use a light bulb to pick a lock? Well lucky for me, I looked online the other day and I read this:

  1. break the light bulb.
  2. take the metal thingamabob
  3. put the metal thingamabob in the lock
  4. unlock it, and presto!

So I used the same technique to pick the lock and it worked. I took the metal thingamabob just in case I need it. One I got to the sliding glass door it was unlocked, so I threw the metal thingamabob to the neighbour’s house. I opened the sliding glass door, quickly grabbed the phone and left. I pressed the numbers and called my mom.

“Hello?” my mom questioned.

“It’s Gavin, you are not going to believe-”

“ Let me guess, Billy Bob Joe did something horrible to you?”

“YES! He locked me in the linen closet!”

“How are you going to prove it?”

“I hid cameras, and this time I got em!”

I hung up and texted the video proof to my mom. I waited for her to reply and POOF! She replied.

It read:

Wow! U were right =O What about the light bulb:(

I texted back:

Don’t worry mom, I got this under control ;D

I turned off the phone and went back in the kitchen. When I stepped inside the living room I saw Billy Bob Joe’s dad’s car pull over(His father’s name is Sloppy Joe)

Billy Bob Joe spotted me. “How did you get in here? I locked you in!” Billy Bob Joe said.

Ding Dong, the doorbell rang as I opened the door.

“Gavin’s mom called me, Billy Bob Joe,” Sloppy Joe said.”You’re in big trouble, mister!”

“But…” Billy Bob Joe argued.

An old lady named Bessie came by and asked,”Who threw a broken light bulb in my backyard?”

“I blame Billy Bob Joe,” I answered.

Sloppy Joe dragged Billy Bob Joe into the car and Bessie left, so I closed the door.

“Yay yeah!” I cheered as I ran around the house.

THE END

A Horse Called September

Anna and Mary have been best friends for years living in Chestnut farm, but Mary is worried that their friendship will end. Anna is sent away to a show jumping school with rich snobs while Mary is taking care of their horse September. Will there friendship still be the same as it was or will they lose it?

I wish I can write more about this book, but I don’t want to spoil it. If you have kids that love horses then they would love this book. It kept me wanting to read more and felt like I was the one riding the horse. The characters were well described and the plot was great. I wish this book was a series. I am really looking forward to reading more of her books:D
