Way of the Warrior Kid

           I am the goat; I will post daily blogs for book reviews, and other topics. I like sports such as baseball, basketball, and football. I play baseball, basketball, and I am part of my local swim team.

Fifth grade was the most miserable year of Marc’s life. He sucked at gym class, he didn’t know his times tables, school lunch tasted like cardboard, and his class took only one field trip to a lake, but that was horrible because Marc can’t swim. And on top of all of that he is being bullied by Kenny Williamson. Luckily for Marc, his uncle Jake is coming and he is a navy seal. Marc is super pumped to see his uncle. Uncle Jake has a plan for Marc, he is going to turn him into a warrior. Becoming a warrior isn’t easy, Marc has to do a lot of sit-ups, push-ups, pull-ups, and squats as well as swimming, eating right, and studying… a lot. Can Uncle Jake turn Marc into a warrior?

This is a very motivating book, it made me eat healthier and workout… a lot. If you are looking for motivation, then you should read “Way of the Warrior Kid” by Jocko Willink.

    Wonder is an inspirational book about a 5th grader named August.  August does not look like everybody else.  His eyes were too low he could not chew properly, and he had no ears.  Resulting in many surgeries and hearing aids  He has been home schooled his whole life.  How does his life effect other people, what do people think of him, and what will happen when he goes to school?

    I really enjoyed reading the book Wonder because it gives you different perspectives of August’s life.
