The Hunger Games

My Rating: 3 stars I walked into the theater with very high (very unrealistic) expectations for this movie. I guess had these high expectations because, well, the Hunger Games books themselves are one of the best young adult novels ever written, I expected its movie to be as mind-blowing as the book. Now, don’t me […]

The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger

My Rating: 5 stars When I think of classic novels, the first thing the comes to mind is one of those boring, musty books that students are forced to read in English class that barely seems like it is even written in English. I was highly mistaken. The Catcher in the Rye, a title very […]

A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby

They are all up on top of that building all for different reasons, but one common purpose. None of them thought they would run into […]

Matched by Ally Condie

My Rating: 4 stars In Cassia’s world, Society rules all. Society tells you where you live, what job you will have, what food you will eat, what you will wear, who you love, and even when you die. One has no opinion and no choices. Society does that for you. For teenagers, the Matching ceremony […]

Perfect by Ellen Hopkins

My Rating: 5 stars The word “perfect” itself is subjunctive. It can mean a variety of different things to different people. Something that is ugly to someone could be beautiful to another. Everyone has a different way of discovering what is “perfect” for themselves. Everyone has some place or someone that they’d rather be. For […]

My Rating: 4 stars Four friends, Sara, Alice, Polly and Jessica plan to throw a party to commence the start of a new school year, their senior year. The party ends up being bigger than expected, but by the end, who was hooking up and who was fighting was the farthest things from their minds. […]
