"Before I Fall"- Sweet, Funny, and Bittersweet

This book touched me deeper than I expected. At first I anticipated this book being superficial and a very predictable read. But I was happily surprised by the time I finished it. This book is about a girl names Samantha and the day she dies. But the weird thing is, she keeps coming back and reliving it over and over again. It seems that the universe wants her to change something about that day or to give her a second chance for something. We find out that Samantha is considered one of the…See More

"I've never read this book, but have really only heard good things about it. I like some dystopian books, but I'm also pretty picky about them. I like the summary of this one though! I think I'll check it out. "

Brenna Knippen commented on Bruce Liu's blog post How to choose a major?
"As a fellow senior, I agree with viviana. Picking a major is something one most definitely does not have to do yet. It doesnt even have to be done in high school. There is so much pressure for us to have decided our paths and futures at this point,…"

Flat Out Fabulous

In my English class there are a few books that never seem to be out of circulation because they're so highly recommended. "Flat Out Love" is one of these elusive books that I was finally able to snag this month after a long time of waiting. But the wait was worth it because this book was absolutely fantastic and now holds a place on my list of favorites. Julie Seagle doesn't have a place to stay when she moves to Boston for college. Luckily, she ends up finding a home and boarding with the…See More

All My Dreams in a Nutshell: Austenland

Posted on January 10, 2014 at 1:01am 1 Comment

As many of you probably already know, I kind of enjoy reading Jane Austen. I have read all of her books so many times I can quote the majority of them. So, when I came across a book on my English teacher's shelf called Austenland by Shannon Hale you know I was intrigued from the start. 

This book is a short, witty romantic…

Let Me Persuade You to Read This Book

Posted on October 24, 2013 at 11:30pm 2 Comments

Though I am a huge Jane Austen fan, I can be skeptical when I read her stories at times. I mean, how often if it that the man you want wants you back just as much each time? I love the romanticism of her books, but sometimes struggle to identify with the stories. That is not the case with my favorite Austen novel, Persuasion.…
