"I can be a man. I can learn to walk with my head up, and to shout when I talk," she says. "And I can wear soldier's clothes." (p.9)        I chose this book because I want to watch this movie by Disney. I already know that movie's song. I really like the song. I listen to the song every night. But I have never seen the movie. So I want to know the story and I found a book at my school library. I tried to read the book, and I was surprised the story because Mulan went to war instead of his father. I thought this story is only love story. But Mulan fights bravely. she is very strong woman. I think she is wonder woman!
        I want to be Mulan!

His blue eyes are famous. Girls love his smile, and he has fans in a lot of countries. (p.1)
       I chose this book because I love Leo. I watched Titanic these days, and then I think he is very cool and beautiful. His eyes are really attractive. I can't take my eyes away from his eyes.  Beside it, he has so nice voice, I think. His manly voice is very nice. My favorite his phrase in Titanic is "Trust me". I really like this phrase.
       Next, I want to watch Romeo and Juliet. Romeo is played by Leo. I know this movie's story because I watch other one played another actor. But I really want to watch Leo's Romeo and Juliet. I wish I could watch it someday...

"I killed Alessandro and I can kill you too!" continued Carla. "Don't forget that, Dino!" (p.25)
     When I choose this book at first time, I think this book is a funny story about something carnival or music because I had heard "Bossa Nova" before I read this book. "Bossa Nova" is a genre of music so I thought this story is about music! But this book's name "Casanova" is a hotel's name that Dino want to name his hotel. He planed to get marry when he was twenty-six. And then, when he is thirty years old, he want to his own hotel. But a woman named Carla appeared  in front of him.

BR 2-09: A Death in Oxford

"It's Kate Miller, Inspector. I'm at 17B St John Street, the house of a Dr Janet Leighton. She's dead." (p.6)
     This story is a thriller story. While I read this book, I was looking for a culprit. At the end, my expectation hit the real culprit. I think this book is getting exciting.

BR 2-08: Don't stop now!

イメージ
"It says "Don't stop now!" We don't want you to go. We need you here in the café. You are in our family now."  (p. 31)
     I think someone's father is very strong for his daughter after I read this book. In this book, Paolo helped her daughter named Kate but the way to help her is crashing to the building by car. So he had to get six weeks in prison. I think he is very kind father.
     This story include love romance. Matt loves Kate but terrible things happened at same time. So he can't tell his thinking to Kate. But when Paolo came back to the cafe, Matt was allowed to marry to Kate. Paolo and Kate want to be family with Matt. I think it is so romantic ending.

     I think people can connect stronger to overcome the terrible things together.
