I just finished reading, in about 5-6 days, the following books by John Green: Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, Paper Towns, Will Grayson, Will Grayson, and The Fault in Our Stars. I loved every single book. But like every book that I read and love, I go through this kind of withdrawal and sadness when I'm done.
First, each and every one of these books made…Continue

One of my favorite quotes is "My best friend is a person who will give me a book I have not read." This hasn't entirely held true for me throughout my life, as there is not a lot of book exchanging going on between myself and my friends, but it seems that the only people who ever give me books as presents are either family, or some of my closest friends. So if I think about it, I can find some merit and truth about this quote in my own life.
What I don't like, is when someone tells me…Continue
This book is definitely a long, long read.
I bounced between being entranced an excited, to bored, to interested, to longing for an ending, to excited and then dully unaffected by the uneventful ending. Even so, I would have to say I enjoyed quite a few facets of this story, even if there were some things that I did not enjoy.…

Wow, what a sweet story. Slightly reminiscent of Dear Enemy but unique in and of it's own right. For a novella to bring about that much change in fate and emotion in so few pages, it deserves to be applauded. I was quite glad.
Solena, a young orphaned girl raised by the High Prophet of her people, is known for having a generous heart along with her…

I do not think I have ever read a book like On The Jellicoe Road.
Every once in a while you read a book that deals you an emotional blow in more than one way, by throwing you through the ringer of the tragedies of it's characters and their triumphs, and at the same exact time forcing you to work through your own. On The Jellicoe Road is that kind of book-- only on a level that far exceeds.…Continue
Anyone who loves physical books really needs to take a look at Better World Books!
As a general rule, any book you purchase though BWB, one book gets donated to children who cannot otherwise obtain books. A portion of each book you purchase goes toward funding literacy programs around the world(you can even see the specific organizations which will receive your money next to each book in your cart)! But what is so great about right now?
Every book you buy,…Continue

I was reading this book a few years ago, and I never finished it, but now I want to. I can’t remember the title or author, but it was from the point of view of a young girl in Europe I think, in the 1800s I think. She had an older sister and her mom was a huge literally insane bitch. The girl had dreams about flying and finding things out and I think she was psychic and her mom thought she was crazy because of it. Her sister was the favourite, and I think we find out later that the…Continue

Here's the Mayo Clinic…Continue

Vidcon was amazing. Thanks to everyone who was there,…Continue
