You’ll never hate the Percy Jackson movies like Rick Riordan hates them

I do not want Looking for Alaska to be a movie. But if it has to be, I think it needs to be rated R so that it can be told truthfully. It’s not a cutesy teen romance and it shouldn’t be treated like one.

This is what preservation looks like: Flags
Sparing books from adhesive library labels and barcodes, these circulation tags photocopy well onto acid-free paper

I want to red big books like Les Mis and Ulysses but then I also want to get lost in many small stories and finish my goodreads challenge, of course.

My Review: Darius & Twig by Walter Dean Myers
Quick review for a quick read: I loved the message this book sends, but I could not get into the characters or the plot. Perhaps because that is not my background at all, but it just didn’t do it for me.  But I believe it will for other people.  If it weren’t for being one of the last books by WDM, I probably wouldn’t finish it.  It was one of those situations where I would definitely recommend it for others, but it wasn’t for me.  Which is interesting, because I adored Monster.  Oh well.
3/5

If you’re a teen looking for a good book to make you laugh, check out this novel. Our hottest read is Swim the Fly by Don Calame. This book has everything: grandpas hitting on widows at funerals, crossdressing, blackmail, bugs flying up your nose, and a fifteen-year-old pooping his pants.
(This is how I feel when describing this book. It’s quite fun. I highly recommend the audio, if only for the scene with the bug going up his nose. No way that’s as good on paper.)

I was going through my tag to prepare for a few booktalks I need to give tomorrow and now I’m tempted to do them all in Stefon’s style.

Do it
