    You know when a book is good when you can never put it down. When you get really sweaty and scared. When you sneak lights and read under the covers. When you are on the edge of your seat.When you have stains of food on your book because you cant put it down.When you get so mad you throw the book across the room.When you feel the connection with you and the book.When you think constantly about it and forget to do important stuff like pack your lunch or get your backpack together.When you forget your book at home you get so mad

    You know a book is goood when you are reading and then everything goes silent and you can’t hear anything and then you transport yourself there and at a bad part accidentally start screaming because you think your there. And then at funny parts your laugh hysterically. And at sad parts you cry. And you start doing what the main character does. Now that’s a gooood book!
