I‘m doing this book for a school report and having a mental debate on using post-it‘s or just writing in the book. What do you do? I can‘t make up my mind on this.

GingerAntics I find it easier to write in the book. There can be mishaps with the post-it‘s that cause them to be entirely useless. I‘ve always been told, a well loved academic book will have writing all over it. 1mo
ForCuriosity @GingerAntics I think that‘s true as well. I‘ve deciders to write on the pages but mark certain one with colored post-it‘s so I can find it easily while planning my project. Having a small flag helps when referencing. 1mo
GingerAntics Oh I totally agree with that. I like to color code my flags, coordinated with my color coded highlights and notes (I‘m a bit OCD). I find flags easier than dog ears, but I‘ve known people who preferred the dog ear method. 1mo

Welcome to Night Vale: A Novel | Joseph Fink, Jeffrey Cranor
post image
Pickpick

This book was weird is the best way. I recommend listening to the podcast before starting the book ( even if it‘s just 1 ep) so you can get a feel of what it‘s going to be like. The way I word it is nightvale is a town where every conspiracy theory exists and the citizens don‘t really think anything of it. I recommend using the audiobook as the authors originally wrote podcasts and I found i enjoyed it more when I listened to it. Highly recommend!

The Language of Flowers: A Novel | Vanessa Diffenbaugh

I enjoyed the use of the flowers to further the meaning of the main characters interactions, overall if you read the synopsis and feel you will enjoy it you probably will.

Overall I did like the book and it was an enjoyable read but I found I was able to predict certain events that were major plot points in the book, but I loved the incorporation of photographs into the story and I did really enjoy the concept. I will be continuing the series further in the future

Room: A Novel | Emma Donoghue
post image
Pickpick

This book was incredible and I couldn‘t put it down. It‘s the story of a mother and her 5 year old son Jack who are trapped in an she‘s known as room .This is a very serious topic and I would have never seen it coming that it‘s told from Jacks POV. it‘s interesting to see the world through his eyes as all he‘s ever known is Room, and as he‘s very young many things took on personalities of their own. An amazing story that I highly recommend.

ImperfectCJ I enjoyed this one so much, despite the emotional gut-punch of the POV. The audiobook is fantastic, too. 7mo

We read this book in class and I will remember it for years to come. This book was truly amazing. One time I was reading on my couch and my mom saw the book. She read it in high school and it is still one of her favorites, and I agree with her on that.

I loved this book. The way he writes is the same way we think. Sometimes in full sentences or going into fantasies in our heads. I highly recommend this book.

Starting this book for the “Banned” books project at school. Banned book week starts on the 23rd and was made to give credit to books that have been challenged or banned in different school districts or libraries. ( look it up to learn more about it) I‘m excited to give this one a read, I‘ve only read a bit and my friend had to ask me why I was laughing in class. So it‘s already looking good

Candide | Voltaire

I had to read the book for our school summer assignment and while last year I enjoyed the book, it was “to kill a mocking bird”, this year was very different. The book was short but I wasn‘t a fan of the plot or writing style, which really doesn‘t leave much of the book to like. The only character I liked was Martin, as he was a realist and didn‘t fall for much.

Due to an overload of school work I just started even though I was planning to ages ago. But finals are this week and I need a way to calm down, so what better way then to read.

Mehso-so

Wasn‘t the biggest fan of this one, and I got really confused near the end. Overall kept my attention because during certain scenes I had to read sentences over to make sure I was reading them correct cause they were strange. Many allusions to mythology which I enjoyed but overall was not a fan of the plot.

So I got a set of lord of the rings from my library book store and since I just finished my book and have a lot of free time I want to start the series. But do I start with the prelude or part 1?

darklydreaming My hubby is a huge LOTR fan and he says to just read LOTR. Apparently the Hobbit is more of a book for youth and may paint you a different picture for that world! Happy reading! 2y
ForCuriosity @Srodh24 thanks :) 2y
BookwormAHN I agree with @Srodh24 husband. If you really want to read them in order then start with The Hobbit, however The Hobbit can seem somewhat juvenile and flowery next to The Lord of the Rings. Also The Fellowship of the Ring summarizes it pretty well. 2y
MrsLee I agree with those who have commented. Start with LotR, then read Hobbit later. I love them both differently, but if I had to choose, it would be LotR. Hope you enjoy the experience! 2y

When I first got the book I didn‘t know what I was getting into, but I‘m so glad I read it.Grant issues great quotes and massive amounts of evidence to support any claim he makes and even proves on by using the reader as an example.He mixes humor with fact and it comes together to create something amazing. Highly recommend.One of my friends asked me what I was reading cause I was laughing in the middle of class today as well, so that‘s a good sign

The Glass Castle: A Memoir | Jeannette Walls

I highly recommend this book, her story is something you expect out of a work of fiction, but it is a memoir of her life and is amazingly executed with what senses she decides to include from her childhood. I loved this story and is definitely one I will revisit in the future

BookaholicNatty I loved this memoir so much!!! Every time my kids complain I think if they only knew how good they have it!!!!!!!!! 2y
PenguinInFlight I read this a long time ago (I was 19ish, maybe?) and I was blown away by what a great book it was. 2y
Zarathustra Still one of my favorite memoirs I've ever read. 2y
staci.reads Great book! I was stunned by how matter-of-fact she was about her upbringing and the neglect by her parents. Her tone lacked any bitterness. I don't think I could have been that forgiving. 2y

I loved this book. Even though I read it sometime last year anytime I see the title I can‘t help but just think “that was a great book” and then get all excited. The 2 different perspectives of the characters is done in a distinct way as to not to get confused. I got so immersed it took me about a day or two to finish. Highly recommended.
