Book Review: Surviviors #5: The Endless Lake


Hey everyone! Today I am doing another Book Review. This book is for ages 8-12 or grades 3-7. Therefore, it is a Young Teen book. I am a bit older than 12 years old so you can obviously stretch the limits 😉 Today I am reviewing Survivors Book #5: The Endless Lake.

Blog Graphic (1)

Name: Survivors #5: The Endless Lake

Author: Erin Hunter
# of pages: 336
My Rating: 5/5 stars
Goodreads Rating: 4.4/5 stars
Amazon Rating: 4.8/5 stars

Amazon Summary:

At the edge of a strange lake that seems to stretch on forever, Lucky and his Pack are about to discover even more new dangers. With the Fierce Dogs on their trail and the Storm of Dogs looming on the horizon, every dog will have to fight for survival—or be swept away.


My Thoughts:

I definitely recommend this book for anyone that loves adventure, animals and fantasy. This book is the 5th book in the series. It continues to follow the journey of Lucky and his Wild Pack. This is a short page turner that will keep you begging for more.

Book Extravaganza: Get Offa That Slump

Hey everyone! I’ll be 100% honest with you. This event started Wednesday. I haven’t been able to get started until now. Anyway, procrastinating aside, let me give you a run down of the event:

It’s hosted by Rachel @ Beauty and the Bookshelf. If this is interesting to you, find out more information at Rachel’s awesome blog. Blog Extravaganza is a blogging challenge. It’s to help you post more often and show you some things you can post on your blog and still keep it bookish. Yes, this is a bookish challenge. That means if you’re not a book blogger like moi, you probably shouldn’t join. The purpose is also just to have fun and make blogging not be a job. This challenge lasts for three weeks. It started Wednesday March 9th and it goes until March 30th. Scheduling and more is at the Beauty and the Bookshelf.

Day #1: An interview about myself.

This is literally me interviewing myself. Let’s see how this goes.

Hello. What’s your name?

My name is Makayla. Yes, that really is my name. Bookworm is not my last name though XD

How old are you?

Almost in high school. That should give you a pretty good idea 😉

How long have you been blogging?

I honestly had to look this up XD I have been blogging for 9 months. It will be one year on June 23rd. It feels like I’ve been blogging longer than that!

Why Random Reads?

As some of you may know, Random Reads wasn’t the blog’s original name. It was originally named readersandmore. I wanted to name it that because I wanted to do book related things but much more like writing. I later decided that Random Reads was easier to remember and fitted the blog better.

Let’s get a little personal.. Do you have any pets?

Seriously? This isn’t very personal. Yes, I do have pets. Two cats to be exact. Their names are Trouble and Ali.

What are you currently reading?

Simon and the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. If you haven’t read it yet, you definitely should!

What’s your favorite and least favorite subject at school?

My favorite is language arts. It’s just a class where you read and write, my two favorite things. My least favorite is math. This is partly because I’ve never been very good with math.

What do you want to do when you grow up?

First of all, I’m never going to grow up XD Second of all, I want to be a author. If that doesn’t work out, a journalist or something to do with weather.

Lastly, What is your favorite meme on WordPress?

This is a pretty tough one. I’m going to say Book Traveling Thursday’s. If you haven’t heard of it or don’t participate, you should check it out!

Thanks for letting me interview you Makayla the Bookworm!

You’re very welcome. You can come back anytime. I hope you’ll read a few of my posts sometime.

Oh trust me. I’ve read quite a few *wink*

We are going to leave it there. That was pretty fun! Definitely easier than I thought it would be.

That’s day #1 of Get Offa That Slump. I’m going to publish day #2 later today. Stay tuned for that!

Thanks for reading 😀

The Book Love Tag


Hey everyone! I haven’t done a tag in such a long time!! Today I have decided to do The Book Love Tag. I was unofficially/officially tagged by My Tiny Obsessions. You should definitely check out her bookish and obsession blog! I have a lot of love for all things bookish. This should be good!

The Blook Love Tag

Without further ado, here we go!


1) Favorite Book Couple.

This is so hard!! I’ll just say one of them: Levi and Cath from Fangirl. The way Levi loves Cath through everything is so sweet! If you haven’t read Fangirl yet.. what are you waiting for?!

2) Your Top 3 Book Boy/Girlfriends

This is going to be tough..

1)Harry and Ginny

2)Katniss and Peeta

3) Ron and Hermione


3) Imagine Your Favorite Book Couple. Who Would Propose, and How? (If there’s already been a proposal: Who Would Be More Into Organizing the Wedding? *Spoilers*

I’m going to pick Harry and Ginny for this one. In the Deathly Hallows, in the nineteen years later part, they are married. In the book there was no proposal so I’ll describe that 🙂

Harry would be the one to propose. He would probably propose at the end of their time at Hogwarts after the big battle with Voldemort and everyone is safe. Harry would probably do it on the Quidditch field. It would be special and romantic.

4) Unpopular Opinions Time! Name a Popular Couple You Can’t Stand.

I can’t stand Bella and Edward from Twilight. The funny thing is that I haven’t read any of the twilight books.

5) What’s Your Favorite and Least Favorite Romance Trope.

I had to look up the meaning of “Romance Trope” and still have no answer.

6) Do You Ship Non-Canon Couples Often? Name Some If You Do.

I had to look up “Non-Canon Couples” I seriously need to learn these XD I don’t read fanfiction so once again, I have no answer.

7)Your Opinion On Love Triangles. Go!

I have no problem with Love Triangles as long as they are done right. Most love triangles drive me nuts though. I guess I’m on the fence with this one!

8) Favorite and Least Favorite Love Triangle.

I’m enjoying Hermia, Lysander and Demetrius in the Midsummer Night’s Dream. We are reading that in school and it’s seriously messed up. It’s more like a love square with Helena.  I don’t like the partial love triangle in Fangirl. It’s between Cath, Levi and Nick.


9) Sometimes Romance Just Isn’t The Way To Go. Favorite Friendship?

This one is very tough!! I’m going to say.. Leah and Nick from Simon vs the Homo Sapiens Agenda. I can’t gush enough about how much I love their friendship and how the book is going.

10. What’s your favorite scene with your bookish OTP?

This question is too hard to answer…

11. Imagine Your Favorite Book Couple Again. Who’s Most Excited About Valentine’s Day (Either Ironically or Genuinely)

This is definitely a tough one. I’m going to say Harry. He seems like he would take every chance he could to show Ginny how much he loves her.



Oh my gosh, I loved this tag so much! That’s why I tag EVERYONE who wants to participate 🙂

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more book tags!
