Follow-Up To Witch By Christopher Pike

I recently finished Witch by Christopher Pike a few moments ago and now I have to say that Witch is now my favorite book. And that’s saying a lot, considering that I am a book lover and I can never even guess how many books I have read.

Looking at this book in the library, I remember thinking this book was to just pass the time. I never would have thought this book would make an impact on my reading life.

You know that feeling, when you read an extraordinary book, and you finish it, you’re life has been changed in a minor way, and no one understands how you feel even when you tell them aout it? That’s how I feel right now.

No one will ever know how great this book is by me just telling you about it. You have to make the step and read this book. I never read a book like this before, and it touched me in ways that I have never thought possible. Who knew that someone could have this wonderful idea just floating around in their head?

Anyway, I HIGHLY recommend reading this book. This is inspiration for me for future stories that I will read or write. Good luck to anyone who is writing any of their own stories.

Does anyone have any books they have ever read that has affected them in their life? If so, I would LOVE to hear about it and I will try to read those books myself!

Have a great day everyone and don’t forget to read until you can’t read anymore!

A Book I’m Reading

She was a good witch.

Julia is a young woman with extraordinary powers. She has the ability to heal people with her touch. She can also know the things that are happening in far off places when she looks in water that has sunlight shining on it. She comes from a tradition of witches, of good witches. But before Julia’s mother died, she warned her daughter never to look in water that had moonlight shining on it.

Unfortunately, almost by accident, Julia does so. What she sees is a vision of the future, a scene in which a young man she doesn’t know is shot in a hold-up and dies in her arms. Only later, when Julia attends a football game at school, does she meets the young man.

He is her girlfriend’s new boyfriend.

Julia immediately falls for the guy, but it is an ill-fated love. He does not belong to her and he is supposed to die. Or does he have to die? Julia doesn’t know if her vision of the future is set, or if it can be changed. She doesn’t know why the gunman in her vision evokes such a hatred in her, and why she feels she must destroy him at all costs. But using the supernatural  powers at her command, and risking her own life, plus the lives of her friends, Julia will find the answers to all these questions, at a terrible cost.

Right now I’m at my grandparents house in Pittsburgh. I LOVE books, and what’s really cool is my grandparents live near a LIBRARY! Woohoo!

I was looking through the teens/children’s/whatever you want to call it section. 🙂 I saw this author: Christopher Pike. He has really cool books, and I’m glad I found his books, because they’re REALLY good. As I’m reading them I’ll try to post about them and if you ever have the time you should definitely read them.
