Two of them I adore and could read for eternity, The Fault in Our Stars and Looking for Alaska. But the third and…See More

The Classics Revealed

      For there are stories that all of us know. The ones passed down from generation to generation, those we have seen in movies, and those that are just a part of our society.

"I have to start off with that Perks of Being a Wallflower is one of favorite books. I completely agree with you about the format of the book. At first I also thought that it would be a little bland because of the one person perspective, but I ended…"

Sydney Wells commented on Yuri Shibata's blog post Fourth Quarter Blog: Nonfiction vs Fiction Books
"I personally don't think that I have fully reached the point of maturity in which I can respect and enjoy nonfiction books as they should be. But although I don't think I'm completely there, I have noticed an increasing intrest since…"

"First of all, I appreciated your honestly in your blog. The other reviews I have read have focused mainly on what it was about and less of their actual opinion. Thank you for telling us that you personally thought it was boring. Now I know that it…"

Sydney Wells commented on Priya's blog post Blink by Malcolm Gladwell
"I have not read Blink or Outliers but I have heard great things about both. I try to be as openminded as I can, and I love to expand my knowledge about various topics. I think that I would love Blink, because from what you…"

Sydney Wells commented on Ellen Ni's blog post Dystopia
"I think people, teenagers especially, like dystopian because they are so settled in their cliche american lives that they want a break from reality. When reading these books you get to fantasize and learn the ways of a different world and that gives…"

Sydney Wells commented on Morgan R.'s blog post Sick of Vampires
"Personally, I am not a huge fan of vampire books either. But I believe that there are also hundreds of books in each category of fiction that are all very alike.  Also, if you think about new authors, they are going to write about things that…"

Sydney Wells commented on Meredith Mottonen's blog post November Blogging: Tuesdays with Morrie
"I have watched the movie and found it sad and beautiful. The messages let me see the truth in death and helped me accept that all death is not scary and horrific. I was inspired when I watched this. I would absolutely love to read this book. I think…"

Sydney Wells commented on Eden's blog post "Water for Elephants" by Sara Gruen
"I have only seen the movie and it had me in tears. I loved it and would love to read the book. I think the book would get more in depth and I think I would like that better in comparison to the film. I agree with you, I like that it is set in a…"

Sydney Wells commented on Alaina McCaffrey's blog post The Experience of Loving a Book
"Personally, I definitely prefer independent reading. I like it more because I can absorb the details. When I read for class, I am rushed and confused because of the limited time. But one thing I like about school reading is the fact that they choose…"

Sydney Wells commented on Sean DiGioia's blog post Optional Reading
"Personally, if we never had to read for summer reading, I don't think I would mind. I would probably read a long book slowly over the whole summer. But if we never had to read ever, I couldn't do it. Some days all you want to do is read a…"
