Books

January

Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green & David Levithan | ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ | I loved this book from start to finish. It has two really unique voices that alternate chapters as the main characters (both named Will Grayson), and it was not only entertaining and fun (aka it had good humor) but it had lots of heart, and the whole thing was just awesome. By the end of the book I was tearing up at how much emotion I was feeling. It's the first real book I've read in a while, and had me reading it at midnight under the covers again like I used to do when I was little and completely sucked into a book. 

  • excerpt, because I can: "I know it sucks, but it's good." He looks at me like I've just said something absolutely idiotic, which of course I have. "Love and truth being tied together, I mean. They make each other possible, you know?"

(in-progress soon) Looking for Alaska by John Green


For school:

Frankenstine by Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley | I enjoy this story thoroughly, even though I also find it fairly depressing. And, I don't really like any of the main characters.

Imagined Communities by Benedict Anderson | We actually only read a couple chapters of this, and honestly, I'm glad. As cool as the discussion the ideas he presents was, he was really hard to read - lots of big words and long sentences, and it seemed more like he was trying to sound smart rather than that he actually needed to use all of them.
