So I wanted to make this post before, but I've been dreadfully busy this Christmas break. This particular post is mostly going to be about my 2013 literature, so brace yourselves everybody and get ready for take off!
Book reviews of 2013:
- Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan
I sound so disgusting in this (ha, embarrassing), but this was the first and only video review so let me know if you want more! We had quite a good discussion on it. If you want to join in, click HERE for the original post!
- T4 by Ann Clare LeZotte
This review wasn't as popular, but I do think the book is worth a read. I actually learned quite a bit from it! Click HERE for the original post!
- Beastly by Alex Flinn
This was the first book I read of 2013 and I enjoyed it! I forgot about all those book suggestions people gave me and I'll try to remember that this year when I run out of things :) Check it out HERE!
- The Sky Is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson
I loved and hated this book. Read the review to find out why. Personally, I was excited about the book, but I didn't get a discussion as I wanted. Click HERE to see what it's all about.
