This is a fun, interesting book by Jacqueline Suskin. She has an interesting way of talking about things, and encourages you to write a list of the things you like.
With beautiful, vintage pictures, to modernday pictures this book is unique in style and writing. The only thing bad about it is that sometimes the print made it difficult to read.
But this is a great book for a art student, writer, or photographer!

It was a pretty good book, if you are into Urban Fantasy this is the book for you, targeting adults from 18-20. it is very strange. the is intermingled with a historical plot and full of interesting twists. Though the love that Jack felt for the guy was a little cheesy, it was 'electric' at first sight. this was a pretty good book though, and i enjoyed it.
Review on Divergent by Veronica Roth
Beatrice Prior lived in Abnegation. The Selfless.
She is going to have to choose which faction she is, just like everyone does when turning sixteen.
Is she smart, like the Erudite?
Is she kind, like the Amity?
Is she truthful, like the Candor?
Is she selfless, like the Abnegation?
Is she brave, like the Dauntless?
She must chose. There is a test to tell her what she is, to tell her which faction she should go into.
But the test doesn’t work. The test was supposed to work, to tell her what she needed to do. But she is something special, she isn’t like everyone else. And there are those that are searching for people like her to kill her.
She is Divergent.
This was a fantastic book. I really mean it, FANTASTIC. This is my new favorite series, this is really the best book I have ever read. I love it and will always love to read it. I am so happy to get it and read it, it will stay on a special spot on my shelf forever. I loved the main character so much, she was real and relatable, she and I having similar flaws and strengths. Maybe that’s why I loved it so much. But I would recommend it to anyone.
I almost didn't do a review on this one because it is such a fantastic classic I didn't think anyone would be questioning weather they should read it or not.
"You don't want me because I am not a boy!? this is the most Tragical thing to ever happen to me!" Anne comes to Green Gables, at the request of Marilla and Mathew Cuthbert, older siblings that lived in the family house. They had sent to an orphanage that they wanted a boy, so that Mathew, with his failing heart, didn't have to work so much. But instead of getting a boy they get a girl. A red haired, freckled, talkative girl that has miles of imagination in her head. Anne Shirley only wants to be loved, and be able to imagine everything she ever wanted. And when the opportunity comes for Marilla to give Anne up she changes her mind. and keeps the girl with her at green gables.
This is an endearing book, if you enjoyed the movie you will love the book, with many word for word conversations that have been copied to the movie. Again, this is a fantastic book. 5 star rating.

Review on Troubadour by Mary Hoffman
When a young noblewoman named Elinor learns that she’s to marry a much older man, she flees her comfortable home for the hard life of a jugular. It’s not just the escape that appeals to Elinor. She’s also got her eye on kind, handsome Bertran, another wandering poet whom she sets out to find.
But terrible events are building in the south of France. When the crusaders sweep through the country, destroying all those who do not follow their religion, Elinor must go into hiding. Bertran, meanwhile, risks his life to warn others of the in the country. Danger encircles them both as the rising time of bloodshed threatens the fabric of the society in which they live.
Rich with historical detail brings to life Elinor and Bertran’s tale of thwarted romance, escape from certain death, and clever disguise.
This was a great book! Done in a old fashion writing style it kept me reading until the end. I haven’t read any other books by Mary Hoffman, but this makes me want to!
