Hey! Welcome to Kyryi’s Book Club! I have a double post today. One book for boys and one for girls. We will start with the book for boys.
Short snippet from Thor:
“Thor didn’t say anything for a moment. He simply gazed up at the sun, which was now high in the sky, it’s rays warming the pavement. ‘Blue sky, one sun,’ he said softly. Then he groaned. ‘Oh no. This is earth, isn’t it?’”
The book Thor is the story of the god of thunder, Thor. It’s kind of a summary of the movie, including Thor’s banishment, his meeting with Jane Foster, and his battle with the Destroyer. This book is pretty interesting, and my brother really liked it. He actually recommended it to my sister who recommended it to me.
I think that the message of Thor is humility. Thor is not a humble person, as you would know if you have watched the movie. When he ends up trying to lift Mjolnir, his hammer, he can’t because he isn’t humble enough. When he stands up for his friends and is willing to sacrifice himself for them, his hammer comes to him.
I found Thor at the library. You can find Thor at Amazon.
Short snippet from A Tale of Two Castles:
“’Can an ogre shift into any kind of animal?’ I said. ‘A spider or an elephant?’
‘I believe so.’
‘Can an ogre shift into a human?’
Her eyebrows went up. ‘I doubt it.’ She returned to the subject of cats. ‘A cat will stare at an ogre and wish him–will him–to become a mouse. They say one cat isn’t enough, but several yearning at him, and the ogre can’t resist.’”
Elodie is a twelve-year-old girl traveling from Lahnt, her homeland, to the town of Two Castles. Her family wants her to apprentice herself to a weaver, but she knows that it’s not her destiny. She embarks on a new adventure, involving an ogre, a dragon, many cats, and a scheme that she can barely wrap her head around.
I think that the message of A Tale of Two Castles is don’t judge people by their appearances. In Two Castles there are a lot of people whose personalities are very different than she thinks. Some are the exact opposite. She learns by the end of the book that some people who she thought she could trust were really not so trustful, and vice versa.
In Thor, a group of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents take Jane Foster’s scientific equipment. I give Thor
Thor is a great book for kids who aren’t old enough to watch the movie. I recommend ages nine through twelve.
In A Tale of Two Castles, she meets a dragon who sells skewers of bread and cheese. I give this book
I love this book. It is great for ages ten to thirteen. Please, if you haven’t, read it.
The deadline for these books is March 3rd. When you are finished, comment below on who your favorite character is in the book you read. For an extra challenge, read both books!
