    As I wedged my way through a crowd to retrieve my meal at a Young Republicans lobster bake, I noticed that two men who no longer seemed to qualify as “young” were watching me. Sometime later, I found myself face to face with one of the elderly men. He met my eyes with genuine warmth in his own a...

    Don’t forget to remember that you’ll never forget the smell of my neck and the shade of my blood; how I swam through your veins like your new favorite drug. You couldn’t take the dose, so you told me enough, but I’m stuck on your mind and you can’t sober up....

    Come as you are if I can stay as I am. It doesn't matter if you're ugly when you cry. We can discuss the horrors of the world over steaming cups of coffee and clasp hands beneath the table. Spill your soul out onto my bedroom floor, but pick it up before you leave. And don't forget to t...

    Her voice was like honey, her blue eyes like doors. Her smile shined warmth out. Love seeped through her pores. But all of her limbs ached, and she liked her eyes closed, and her smile would break when she fell from her pose. To live in her smooth skin was no easy feat. The shell that ...

    July 12th I don't know how to tell you this, but I'll never leave again, because your roots are entangled in mine. If I ripped my roots from this earth, they'd plant me somewhere new. But you'd have pieces of me, and I'd have pieces of you....

    July 13th Sometimes I can’t discern the light at the end of this tunnel, and I want to flip the switch to extinguish my own. But then I recall all of the books that I haven’t read and the voices I haven’t heard and the passions I have yet to know. Before I die, I will dip my t...

    Ask me who I am, and I will not hear you, for I am deep in a crowd calling out my own name. I will not know the sound of my own voice until it whispers back. Until then I will spend my hours wondering at fate’s reason for the rise and fall of my chest. I will ask whys and hows, and the p...

    Hark to the faster beating of my heart As my eyes see that time hath grown much less. Wherefore dost we leave so near from the start? The thought hath haunted me, I must confess. Ere present, in thy early days of youth, I admired the blank tapestry in awe. Anon, I start to feel the chill of tr...

    I am Remus, for Rome is not mine. My gates flew open for your wooden horse and my city went up in flames. Oh eyes of medusa, I was petrified and my stutters would not suffice. Oh Rome, breathtaking city, your rotting insides make me weep. Your corrupt ways warn me away, but I return once aga...

    My own dilemmas seemed minuscule as I tried to grasp what my mom had just told me. Aunt Jenny had been diagnosed with breast cancer? No way. I knew that my mom would never lie or – God forbid – joke about something like that, but I still couldn't believe it. I had seen my aunt just that week, an...

    “The Book Thief” by Markus Zusak is definitely one of the greatest novels I have read in my fourteen years. I fear that I will not be able to do it justice in only a few paragraphs because I lack words to describe the way it latched onto my soul as I hungrily turned its pages. “The Book Thie...

    “The Silent Boy” is yet another one of Newbery Medal-winning author Lois Lowry’s incredibly thought-provoking novels. I have read quite a few of her books, and though each one never fails to impress me, this was one of my favorites by a long shot. In “The Silent Boy”, Lowry creates ficti...

    Personally, I hold a very neutral opinion towards teen pop sensation Justin Bieber. I simply am not interested in either being one of his fans or bashing him. Having said this, I hope readers will recognize that my opinion is not biased when I discuss my dislike of his song “One Less Lonely Girl...

This book is about love of all kinds. It is about love between couples, lov...

    I must admit that when I first picked up this book, my sole motivation to read it was that I should, because it was a classic, and one can’t go through life without reading such famous literature as this. I was completely ignorant to the beauty of the story that lay within. Are you independe...

    “The Alchemyst: Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel”, a New York Times Bestseller, sounded to me to be an enticing novel. I feverishly read the back cover and snatched a copy off the self at the book store for myself. Unfortunately, I have to admit that this book left me very disappointed...

    A thoughtfully written religious fiction novel, A Voice in the Wind by Francine Rivers not only taught me more about Ancient Rome than any textbook ever could, but also stirred something within me and brought me to examine my own faith. This book brings up many questions and doubts that many people...
