Tell the Wolves I'm Writing a Blog Post

Love is a tricky subject. It has many forms, many obstacles, and many intensities. Love is one of the absolute most popular concepts covered in literature. However, a book I read recently, Tell the Wolves I'm Home by Carol Rifka Brunt, displayed this intense emotion in a way I had never thought of before -- what if…See More

"Thanks for the recommendations! I have wanted to read The Silver Linings Playbook ever since the movie came out but was always going back and forth on whether it would be a depressing, dark read, or boring. You have definitely convinced me to read…"

Megan Spletzer commented on Nicole Degla's blog post Feeling Stressed?
"I think that stress is such a fascinating topic to discuss because everyone has experienced stress overload at some point. I feel like sometimes at school you can just tell how burnt out and sleep-deprived everyone is. I think that a great way to…"

"I loved this book as well, Hazel! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I like what you said about the book being organized perfectly because I think that's what made it so so special. I thought it began at the perfect spot and ended at the perfect…"

"Hey Court! I personally don't think paper will ever go out of style. I don't know if you've ever tried to write with your finger on an iPad, but it's really difficult! I will personally always be a hard-cover book reading,…"

"Great blog Megan! I've heard of talk about a couple of these books and from what I just read in this blog, they seem very interesting. I love having a good book or two to read over a break but I find it hard to search for one that doesn't…"

Spring Break Reading - The Good, the Really Good, and the Cheesy

 Every late March, as spring break finally rolls around, many high school students choose to opt out of- well, thinking - for nine days, as a true break from school. Some would not even consider picking up a book. However, I find myself reading much more than normal when I have a break from school. There's something so satisfying to me about being completely immersed in a story from beginning to end. I saw my vacation - complete with a 25 hour car ride and plenty of pool time - as a perfect…See More

Megan Spletzer replied to Emily Ottesen's discussion Freedom of choice among students
"I dislike the idea of a structured summer reading assignment very much. Assigned books, whether they are good reads or not, tend to make students feel obligated and less excited about reading them. I think that summer reading should definitely stay…"

Megan Spletzer commented on Anuhya Abbaraju's blog post Yes, I Missed Out on a Lot
"It's really interesting to hear a perspective from someone who read the books after they saw the movie, because I read the book multiple times before the movie came out, and I think that it unknowingly enhanced the movie for me because I did…"

Megan Spletzer commented on Enia Kiusals's blog post She sold her soul..
"I do this often, choosing a book based off of nothing other than that intrigue of the cover and the description on the back. I've tried to stop doing this, because I find that I am often disappointed with books that don't have any…"

Megan Spletzer replied to Gary Anderson's discussion SUMMER READING RECOMMENDATIONS
"Though I read them a while ago, I would definitely recommend the Midnighters series by Scott Westerfeld! They're quick reads and super intense - the kind of book that'll have you dying to get the the next chapter!"

Not So Perfect Chemistry

I will start this post by saying that I am a girl. A girly girl who loves romance, Prince Charmings, and fictional relationships that make me sigh and say, "awwwww." However, somewhere in the plethora of girly books that I've read, a line has started to form. The very faded, unclear line that separates the "slightly unrealistic for the sake of being cute" from the "these people could never exist in real life so I'm not buying their relationship." Unfortunately, Simone Elkeles's Perfect…See More

Not Just a Name on the Cover Anymore

            Technology is shaping the nation. Mailboxes are getting replaced by inboxes. Dinner parties are less common than group chats. And our celebrity culture is being invaded by...Authors? Yes, authors. Reading is slowly but surely becoming a "hip" activity, and right along with it, the writers of books are becoming celebrities in their own right. The takeover of social networking has opened the doors for authors to become less of a vehicle for words to travel into bookstores, and more…
