The Fault in Our Stars Movie Review

If you read my review of the book, you know I just adore The Fault in Our Stars. I’ve been looking forward to the movie for many months and I’m pleased to say that it did not disappoint. Of course, my rating comes from comparing it to the book, so it may not be the

Review: The Fault in Our Stars

I’m sitting here teary-eyed after reading this book for a second time, trying to figure out how to describe it with the justice it deserves. I’m also trying to find a flaw in it because certainly no book can be perfect, yet I can’t think of a single complaint. Story (5/5) Simply put, The Fault

7 Reasons John Green is Awesome

This week marks the movie release of The Fault in Our Stars. I could not be more excited. So, I decided to declare this week John Green Week and re-read and review all of his books. To kick off the week, I want to start with what makes him awesome. After only reading The Fault in Our

Review: The Haunting of Hill House

I’m not a huge horror buff, but I do have my favorites. As far as movies go, I loved Rose Red and The Haunting (1999). Yes, the 1999 version. I know it’s not really a good movie and you probably think I have terrible taste, but chalk it up to nostalgia. The reason these were

Review: Vögelein: Old Ghosts by Jane Irwin

Anyone who knows me can attest to my love of faeries. Any kind. Tinker Bell, high fantasy, stories, artwork, you name it. So I had to pick up this graphic novel when I saw the cover. I assumed I couldn’t go wrong with an entire book about a faerie. I was so wrong. Story (1/5)

Judge a Book By Its Cover, Vol. 1

We are always told not to judge a book by its cover, because a great story can be inside anything. This is certainly true. I would have missed out on a lot of great books if I had ignored the suggestion. But sometimes we should go ahead and just look at the cover. Some covers clearly

Review: Foiled by Jane Yolen

Foiled is a graphic novel written by Jane Yolen and illustrated by Mike Cavallaro. I picked it up at the library when I was looking for a standalone graphic novel and it was one of the only ones; most were all part of a long series. I didn’t know what to think at the time,

Review: The Sun Also Rises

I’ve read some of Hemingway’s short stores, which I really enjoyed, but this is my first of his novels. I knew what to expect of his writing style and this certainly fits. It is minimal, details are left out and you need a detective’s cap to figure out the character’s backstories and who is talking half
