    ** spoiler alert ** While I read The Golden Compass, I was absolutely sure that this was going to be one of my favorite books. I love Philip Pullman’s invention of daemons and the way they are the representation of their partner’s soul. This parallel world with daemons, gyptians, witches, an...

    I doubt anyone will be able to read Ender’s Game and not go on to Speaker for the Dead. What can one possibly do after reading that tortuous cliff hanger in Ender’s but pick up its sequel, right? But it’s hard to consider this book as the sequel since it is so different from Ender’s Game on ...

    Do you know that pursuing a career in healthcare involves a lengthy education process of 11 years after high school? Do you that this also includes a massive cost of $300,000? And did you know that 79% of medical graduates have a debt of at least $100,000? I’m asking these questions not to scare y...

    Garth Nix somehow masterfully ties a bow over this hell of a world. Seriously, cheers for him. This world he has created is so raw—-the portrayal of a world between Life and Death, the bells as a form of magic, and the path into Death as a river with Nine Gates are all very unique. The main charac...

    Maybe I wasn’t a Nancy Drew fanatic, but I used to devour every book I could find in the Boxcar Children series and The New Adventures of Mary-Kate & Ashley series as a child. I was a huge mystery reader back then, but not anymore. Picking up a mystery book again, in fact one of the best in t...

    I feared that Stones into Schools, like many other sequels, will just be a repetition of its predecessor. However, I was surprised to find that this book is a lot better. (Yes, I realize that I rated both Three Cups of Tea and Stones into Schools four stars. The reason is because I couldn’t rate S...

    When I was at the hospital waiting room the other day, I cracked open my favorite book and began to read. The woman next to me impatiently tapped her foot, looked up at the TV screen until she lost interest, flipped through a magazine for a while, and then finally peered at me. “That’s one bulky...

    My first encounter of Little Women was when I read the Portraits of Little Women books by Susan Beth Pfeffer when I was young. Those books were a great introduction to Little Women, but the actual book is even better. I adore this book. Each chapter is like a new story and a new lesson to learn. ...

    It was a good page-turning thriller if you forget about the impossible time frame. Dan Brown wrote a 700-and-some-pages book about a mystery that takes place in A DAY. Okay, that’s not what I didn’t like. No, I’m completely fine with a very long book that only happens in a short amount of time...

    The fundamental story of the book is simple—a white motherless girl who ran away from her abusive father—and even a bit cliché. The book has depth though, like the metaphor of the bees and the Boatright sisters. And the writing is beautiful. I was mesmerized by it. The writing is smooth and stu...

    I started reading Wuthering Heights with the impression that it was going to be dragged out and boring. This of course is the wrong attitude before beginning a book. As the story progressed, however, I had to continue reading to know what would happen next. Bronte did an excellent job in developi...

    The book was quite addicting. The writing wasn’t spectacular, but I liked the characters, so it balances out for me. And the witty dialogue was great. Many people, the people who hate the book anyway, say the story isn’t original and was borrowed from the Harry Potter series. As I was reading...

    It was okay. The concept of werewolves changing with the seasons was interesting, and the idea that they can be humans for only so long and then they are wolves for the rest of their lives created some tension in the story. What I really didn’t like, however, was the pacing of the plot. The mid...

    This quote definitely sums up the pure madness and absurdity of this book: “As a kid, I imagined lots of different scenarios for my life. I would be an astronaut. Maybe a cartoonist. A famous explorer or rock star. Never once did I see myself standing under the window of a house belonging to so...

    The idea of time travel has always been fascinating stuff. The premise of it is simply captivating. What’s got to be cooler than time travel, right? To be able to travel to the past and future. And maybe go visit Elvis, or go to future and see yourself as an 75-year-old crumbling man/woman. This k...

    I really need to say something about the book cover. Before I started reading the book, I looked at the cover closely. The only thing that assured me that the person wearing the white shirt was a guy was the muscles in his arms. Other than that, I could have mistaken that as a girl, because, boy, no...

    Lirael builds onto Garth Nix’s fascinating world and introduces two important characters, Lirael (Daughter of the Clayr) and Sameth (son of Sabriel and Touchstone). The story goes back and forth between these two until they meet coincidentally in their mission to save Nicholas and stop the necroma...

    My favorite anagram for my full name is “a radical moon pun.” See, that’s pretty much what I liked about this book. The anagrams, that is. The other geeky stuff was great too, like the weird facts, but The Theorem of Underlying Katherine Predictability was plain annoying. Unlike every other...

    If one is supposed to feel a tug at his or her heart by reading this book, well, it didn’t happen for me. It wasn’t because Christopher lacked emotion. And it wasn’t exactly irritation at him, which one might feel when around autistic people; he was simply unlikable and flat. I continued readi...

    ver read a book only a while ago and then had a sudden urge to read it again? Fahrenheit 451 is one of my examples. And instead of picking up the actual book, I picked up the recently published graphic adaptation. It wasn’t what I planned, but it's what I took out of the shelf and I thought, ...

    I wish Greg Mortenson’s story was written by someone else. Mortenson is listed as one of the authors for this book, but I doubt that he wrote more than his acknowledgments. It is Relin who contributed the writing, and honestly, his style of prose is terrible. To sample his writing, here are a few ...

    This is wonderful fresh take on magic. It’s one of those books that comes close to my ear and reminds me, “This is why you love fantasy!” Here’s what it’s about. Just on the other side of the wall is a world where the line between the living and the dead is vague, where dead spirits com...

    I used to think that Frankenstein was the monster and not the creator of the monster. I know, tsk tsk. But I bet there are numerous number of people who think that too. Confess it; I won’t bite you. No, Frankenstein is not the green-skinned blockheaded zombie with bolts in his neck. Frankenstein ...

    This book gets shunned by people just because it’s science fiction (e.g. Ryan!), but one really doesn’t have to be a sci-fi junkie to like this book (If you want proof, then here I am. I’m your exemplary living example.) It’s more than aliens, spaceships, and time travel; it’ also about...

    Life as We Knew it = fascinating premise + terrifying and eye opening details + a remainder of the virtues we take for granted + developed characters and wonderful character relationships + hopeful and realistic ending. This book = the most unbelievable and infuriating main character ever who see...
