  1. The Fault in Our Stars! I love that book, even though I totally understand what you mean when you say some things are just too much. I'm so excited for the movie though, just the trailer alone reduced me to tears.

    I get what you mean about Virginia Woolf... I had a friend that was obsessed with her, and that friend was a weirdo loving death/depression. I refuse to the The Fault in Our Stars, I feel its overly hyped and I probably won't enjoy it at all.

  3. Hehe and I already felt bad for saying tfios isn't my favourite John Green book

    I loved The Penelopiad, as I'm a huge Odyssey fan!

    How can you dislike Virginia Woolf? I love her writing - it's so pretty I have to read her aloud instead of in my head.

  6. I think I'm just incredibly picky when it comes to Young Adult Fiction; some books I really enjoy and others not so much :))

  7. Ohh fantastic. I really enjoyed reading that book although it was rather sad in places.

  8. Hmm, I don't know. There are a lot of people who are interested in death/depression, I don't think that makes them weird.

    The Fault in Our Stars is a Young Adult book so I guess it really is hit or miss with some people depending on what they like reading.

  9. It hasn't put me off reading others but.. this one really made me cringe. I couldn't relate to any of the characters at all.

  10. Ohh, it was SO SO good. Margaret Atwood is one of my favourite authors, the way she rights is so wonderful.

  11. Ha! I just.. can't.. handle her writing style.
    I find it really dreary and unimaginative.

    John Steinbeck however, can make me cry with only a few words.

    I adore Margaret Atwood. I think I’ve read almost everything she’s written. I also met her once on the subway in Toronto! She was a little less than pleasant but I love her novels none the less.

  13. Oh, that's a shame.. perhaps she was having a bad day!

    I'm glad to hear someone else wasn't charmed by TFIOS! I read the first chapter a few months ago and nearly gagged. Six or seven years ago I would have loved it, but to me now, it felt schmaltzy and sappy and overwrought. I may try it once more before the movie comes out, especially as I've seen reviews from actual reviewers (people other than teenage girls, shocking!) who've also adored it.

    Hallucinations sounds quite fascinating! I'm quite interested in psychological books!
