Gone Girl. Gone Justice?

By now, the ning has been flooded with book summaries and reviews of one of the greatest recent novels *wait for it* Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. So, it's not much of a surprise to find another one. You know how it goes, Amy goes missing and her husband, Nick, tries to find her because he feels that the police aren't doing their job as well as they should. Through this split person narrative (Nick and Amy's journal entries), you start to unravel the mystery around Amy's disappearance. Or, at…See More

Seven Chances

If you died and woke up the next day, the morning of that same day, what would you change? That is what Sam Kingston has to decide.

The night of one of the biggest parties, drama ensues and Sam and her small group of friends leave to go home. The problem? They were all drinking. Her night ends in disaster when she sees a flash of white and…See More

Books bring back memories beyond the story itself.

     Every time I make the journey up to the attic to help my mom put things away or bring seasonal decorations down, I always spot that cardboard box labeled "Sam's Books." They haven't been touched in years, but I can guarantee if I cut the tape holding it closed and took out it's contents, I'd be able to tell you about each and every one. Not only would I be filled with stories that kept me thinking when I was a kid, but those feelings I experienced would come rushing back as well. All the…See More

Sai Musunuru commented on Samantha Enault's blog post "Reading? Nah"
"Nice blog post. I totally agree with your argument. It is sad, but the truth is that I don't read much outside of school. However, the best way to get yourself to read outside of school is by setting goals for yourself and by finding a really…"

Samantha Enault commented on Brandon Vu's blog post Reading Reflextions
"I've learned to enjoy more realistic fiction books too! However, I still like to read stories about fictional worlds. It's nice to hear that you're making progress with your reading goals! I hope you succeed and go beyond them."

Samantha Enault commented on Ben Cohen's blog post Deception
"This series contains a lot of ideas that are scary to think about for our future. While it's not at that extreme now, no one knows what the future holds for the control of the government over our country. I saw the movie divergent and I really…"

Samantha Enault commented on Zeynep orhan's blog post "A Flower's Struggle With Life"
"So true! And they do get worse as we get older, but I feel like after a point they kind of subside. However, high school is probably when it's the worst. Everyone is trying to fit in or make something of themselves and the only we they can do…"

Samantha Enault commented on Anna's blog post Things change
"Great post! I kind of disagree though. I think sometimes bad changes shouldn't be completely dismissed as not influential. Learning to adapt to rough times can really promote self identity and make you a stronger person, which isn't who…"

Samantha Enault commented on Grant Summers's blog post Torture
"This is a really interesting post and I completely agree with you. Torture is one of those topics where there isn't a black or white answer, but the best option is somewhere in between. I like that you touched on both extremes and concluded…"

Samantha Enault commented on Radhe Parikh's blog post Independent reading quarter 1
"I really liked your opening! It really drew me in because it's something everyone needs to be aware of. Also it's very relatable. Although I don't necessarily want to read a book knowing it'll make me really sad, I feel like this…"

Samantha Enault commented on Sai Musunuru's blog post Complications
"I love the show Grey's Anatomy! I read Better last year and I enjoyed it. It wasn't my favorite but I might like this book better. I realized last year (from being forced to read them) that I actually enjoy non fiction books. Everything…"

Samantha Enault commented on Allie Nowak's blog post What Happed to Cass McBride: Book Review
"This book sounds really interesting! I feel like I'd be turning the pages to see what happens next and that the book is filled with suspense. I've never read a book of this genre before but I think that it'd be a good idea to try new…"

Kate Randall commented on Samantha Enault's blog post "Reading? Nah"
"Great post Sam! What a compelling title you chose, it really drew me in. I definitely identified with your argument. You're right, while the internet is a bridge to the world of online reading many things get in our way. Like that Kim K game,…"

Samantha Enault commented on Kate Randall's blog post College Essays and Interviews
"This is so true Kate! I believe that interviews would be a much better representation of who the student really is. Anyone could write well but maybe that energy doesn't transfer into person to person interactions. People aren't going to…"

Denae Gerasta commented on Samantha Enault's blog post Tell The Wolves I'm Home - Carol Rifka Brunt
"Great blog, Sam! I like the approach you took here about the relatable feelings of characters. I love when I can forget that a character doesn't exist-- when their feelings are so real that I feel them myself. Human emotion is so delicate but…"

"I felt like I had proof that not all days are the same length, not all time has the same weight. Proof that there are worlds and worlds and worlds on top of worlds, if you want them to be there"
