Writing 101 Day #7 (Late): Hook Em With a Quote!

Hey everyone! Writing 101 ended on October 2nd but I’m still slowly but surely trying to get through all of the assignments still. If you’re unfamiliar with this course, check out the link here. Today’s objective is to use a quote to start off your post.

“It’s our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.” -J.K. Rowling


I chose a J.K. Rowling quote since I recently finished the first Harry Potter book.

To me, this quote means that what you do, shows who you are as a person more then what you can do.


Being nice to someone overpowers being able to do 3 backflips

Not hanging out with the wrong crowd is better then being able to shoot a basket from the half court line.

Blogging honestly is better then being able to post 5-6 posts a day that aren’t even true.


This may seem a bit cheesy but it’s all true. J.K. Rowling couldn’t have said it any better. People will pay attention more to what you choose to do than what you did in the talent show or at the competition.

Thanks for reading and Stay tuned for more Writing 101!

Book Review: Harry Potter and the Socerer’s Stone!

It’s time for quite an exciting book review. Yesterday, I finished the first Harru Potter book and loved the heck out of it. Now it’s time for me to give some serious and legit thoughts about the book.

Book Title: Harry Potter and the Socerer’s Stone


Author: J.K. Rowling (Amazing Lady :D)

# of Pages: 309

My Rating: 10/10 or 5/5 stars

Book # in the series: 1/7


“Harry Potter has never played a sport while flying on a broomstick. He’s never worn a cloak of invisibility, befriended a giant or helped hatch a dragon.” All Harry knows is a miserable life with his horrible aunt and uncle as well as their spoiled son Dudley. They are known as the Dursley’s. Harry’s room is a very small closet at the bottom of the stairs. He hasn’t had a birthday in 11 years. All of that is about to change when a mysterious letter arrives by owl: A letter with an invitation to a wonderful place he never dreamed existed. There he finds not only friends, flying sports and magic around every corner, but a great destiny that’s been patiently waiting for him. But only if he can survive.

A few thoughts about the book:

“Holly Cow!”

“Why did I wait so long to read this?!”

“Oh my gosh!”

“What did they just do??”

“I love this book!!”

“My friend is amazing!”

“Noooo! Not the last chapter.”

“I’m definitely reading the next book.”

That’s my book review on Harry Potter and the Socerer’s Stone.

Thanks for reading and Stay tuned for more book reviews!
