Book Review | White Fur, Jardine Libaire

There are some books that you really want to love. Maybe you have heard a lot of positive hype in the blogger community about the book. Maybe your best friend told you it is the BEST BOOK EVER. Maybe it won lots of prestigious awards. But you open it up, and you feel…disappointed. White Fur was that book for me. No, there was no hype around the book. I received the advanced reader copy, so there was no danger of that. Still, when I read the blurb on the back of the book, I got super excited. A book...

Scrappy Little Nobody Made Me Fall Harder for Anna Kendrick

Before I proceed with this review, I have a confession to make: I am kinda obsessed with Anna Kendrick. In case you are reading this: no, Anna, I am not going to stand outside your window with a boom box. This is because I don’t have a boom box. In all seriousness, I feel the need to declare my undying love of Anna Kendrick because it probably colors this review slightly. Still, even though I constantly check her Twitter and see most of her films, I am really picky when it comes to writing. And Anna Kendrick is a...

Book Review | Before I Fall, by Lauren Oliver

Okay, I admit it. If a movie adaptation of a young adult novel is coming out, I am running—not walking—to the nearest local bookshop to purchase it. So it is no surprise that I sprinted to get my hands on Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. I am really surprised that this book was made into a movie. The book is about a girl, Sam, who dies in a car accident, but she wakes up to repeat the day over again. This happens to her for seven days. Each day she tries to do something different so she doesn’t...

Book Review | Searching for John Hughes, by Jason Diamond

As far as John Hughes fans went, I swore I was the biggest one. I have seen most of his films (if John Candy is in it, I have not seen it…this is not intentional, but a really weird fluke that I have yet to rectify) multiple times. I have dreamed of twisting and shouting with Ferris Bueller. I have very strong opinions about Duckie and Andie’s dress (yes to Duckie, no to the dress). I have a Jake Ryan t-shirt, and I contemplated purchasing The Breakfast Club poster for my dorm room in college (only an urge to...

Book Review | Queen of the Night by Alexander Chee

I went into reading this book with some trepidation. One of my friends warned me against it; she said the lack of quotation marks for dialogue was distracting and confusing. I had heard some good buzz about the book, so I went to Politics and Prose and held it in my hands for a long time. I double-checked with my friend, and she still insisted it was horrible, so I put it down. It took a trip to the Strand for me to finally purchase it. Another friend of mine told me it was the best book that she...

Book Review | Saint Anything, by Sarah Dessen

It all began in the way all good stories do: with a blind date. In this case, the date was not with a man, but with a book. I was standing in Malaprop’s Bookstore when I first saw it. It was covered in brown paper that advertised that it had “sibling relationships” and “realistic dialogue.” But what sealed the deal were the words “young adult fiction.” It was at that moment that I knew I had to make it mine. I ran to the book counter to purchase the book, tore off the brown paper, and then stared at...
