I already wrote about my favorite female character, and one of the reasons why she is my favorite is because I can relate to her. So this post is going to a bit repetitive, but I’ll keep it short and sweet. The character that I can relate to the most is Lena Kaligaris from The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.
If you’ve ever spent a cozy night cuddled up with a cat and a book, you know that the two just go together. And humans have been making their mark in books for thousands of years, so why shouldn’t cats? One medieval cat decided to take the matter into his own hands–er, paws–and become immortalized within the pages of a manuscript.
This week has been a little crazy and I’ve fallen a bit behind on my 30-Day Book Challenge posts. But I’m SO CLOSE to the end I can taste it, so I’m going to push through my exhaustion and keep going! Today’s prompt is: A book that you wish more people would’ve read.
“The books that the world calls immoral are books that show the world its own shame.”
-Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray
After writing my 30-Day Book Challenge post about Bridge to Terabithia on Friday, it’s tempting to just use that book again for today’s post. But there are several other books that have brought me to tears, so instead I have chosen to write about one that has been very popular and will soon be a movie: The Fault in Our Stars.
I just came back from seeing Divergent, and I really enjoyed it! I was pretty excited for the movie since I really liked the book, but I rarely ever enjoy books-turned-movies. So I was pleasantly surprised that the movie stayed mostly true to the book, and even improved on parts of it.
