    • Dear Kira,
      I am delighted by your post, Prom House since you give the audience an incentive towards reading this book. By giving your perspective upon what happens in the book; many, including myself, gain the feeling of wanting to read the book.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out to me was “There were some parts of the book that dragged on but, without the bad parts, we don’t appreciate the good parts”. I think this is important even in life because like many say, after a storm there is always a rainbow so I agree that even a book has to have bad parts to it.
      Thank you for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next since I have enjoyed learning more about other books I could be interested in reading.

    What Kind of Music Helps Students Study Better?

    In my opinion classical and instrumental jazz help students study harder (at least for me). Music is a big key some people might be missing in their studying habits. When listening to music while studying, your music preferences matter....

    • Dear Kira,

      I relate to your post questioning, “What kind of Music Helps Students Study Better”, because I, too, listen to classical or ensemble music while studying. Mostly ensemble. I do agree that preferences in music are a big thing in the studying habits of others because it gives them a more comfortable setting or feeling. While studying or I’m doing homework, I get engrossed in my work because I feel relaxed when all I hear are instruments playing in the background. The sentence that stands out to me is: “The music can definitely be more distracting rather than focused if the listener strongly likes the music or strongly dislikes the music.” I find this to be true because the chance of focus depends on the listener’s choice of music. Genre doesn’t often matter when doing work, as long as it helps in the focus.

      Thank you for your input on music relating to study habits. It gives me more insight into how different students tend to work in solitary.

      Look forward to reading more about your future posts.
