Review: Gone by Michael Grant

Review: Gone by Michael Grant

Thankfully, however, “Gone” manages to be just about as good as I remember. Sure, there are some things that irk me, and they had enough of a presence in my reading experience that I was forced to give this one a relatively mediocre score, rather than the perfect five stars that I had hoped to bestow. But what Grant does right far outshines the little issues, and that makes this book worthwhile, despite its flaws.

5 Products they need to make for Book Bloggers

5 Products they need to make for Book Bloggers

Sometimes things are invented with such a limited use and small fanbase, that you wonder how even one person could conceive and invest in it, let alone several. These crazy things somehow exist out there, but I could easily think of five products that bloggers desperately need right now. Why haven’t they been invented? Why hasn’t some enterprising entrepreneur begun mass marketing a new invention to make book blogger’s lives useful?

Review: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Review: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

Green is a fantastic writer and storyteller, and I see his work as a wonderful example of YA literature done right. While I can certainly understand why some would find issues with the subject matter, I firmly believe that every reader who enjoys YA needs to give this one, at the very least, a try. It’s not perfect, but it certainly comes close, and its emotional power cannot be denied.
