So when people ask, you nod and discuss it like you've actually read it! Or, see the movie and nod wisely when people say it is nothing like the book!

I cannot stress enough how amazing this book is it literally gave me the feels soo bad. John Green is such an amazing author and the "The Fault in our Stars" is a masterpiece. I cannot wait for the movie on June 6th!! #thefaultinourstars #movie #book #literature #mustread #johngreen #shailenewoodley #nat wolff #ansel elgort #hazel #isacc #augustuswaters #vanhouten #animperialaffliction
| Book 13 | The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. So many mixed emotions about this book. I really had no idea what it was about before I picked it up. I just knew I wanted to read the book before I saw the movie. I liked that it was hard to put down and it contained a great deal of honesty. Although, I'm not sure I liked the end, and by that I mean the last couple of pages. There were also times where you could tell the book was narrated by a grown man pretending to be a 17 year old girl.
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. This is only a Book Worth Reading if you are interested in a well-written story for teenagers. Snappy dialogue, appealing characters, young love, heartbreak, drama, etc. . . . I can see myself loving this book fifty years ago, but I've grown up, and I'm more critical of contrived smaltzy stories with unlikely plot lines.

"Elizabeth Winthrop Chanler" by John Singer Sargent (1893) at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, Washington DC - From the curators' comments: "This portrait shows a beautiful, well-bred woman who has learned to be strong. When Elizabeth was still a girl, her mother died, leaving her to help care for seven younger brothers and sisters. Sargent painted her while she was in London for a brother's wedding, and the artist composed the portrait as if to suggest a turmoil of emotions in his sitter."
“It has made me better loving you...it has made me wiser, and easier, and brighter." - Henry James in The Portrait Of A Lady

The Phantom of the Opera - Gaston Leroux
HOMBMRES Manual de Guías de Estilo
After the breathtaking debut of Christine Daaé, the whispers of an Opera ghost seem to become reality as the young singer vanishes. As the Phantom strikes again and again, targeting foes from a jealous diva to a romantic rival, Leroux spins a thriller of obsession and violence with, at its center, a tormented murderer who awakens our deepest fears and sympathies.

The Castle / Franz Kafka
Bizarre Book, Dust Jackets, Book Worth, Book Covers, Franz Kafka, Dust Covers, Book Jackets, Kafka Castles, Dust Wrappers
Kafka’s castle wasn’t supposed to be all that remained from a time long gone, and wasn’t the type of place you’d necessarily want to visit. Kafka’s castle represented bureaucracy and alienation, its occupants looking down on the people in the village, closing off what’s inside to basically everybody. Of course, Kafka died before finishing up the book, so for all we know he intended to spruce things up in the final edit.

FULL TEXT | Of the tuburculosis sanitarium, the author writes: "You will [get] an idea of the narrowness of this charmed circle of isolation and invalidism..It can...wholly wean a young person from actual and active life...after the first six months the young person has not a single idea left save flirtation and the thermometer under his tongue...He will become completely incapable of life in the flatland."

Blood Meridian, or, The Evening Redness in the West / Cormac McCarthy
Worth Reading, The Roads, Westerns, Book Worth, Cormac Mccarthy, Westward Expan, Novels, Blood Meridian, Wild West
Blood Meridian: Or the Evening Redness in the West: Cormac McCarthy. Harrowing violence, but worth reading for Judge Holden, a profoundly horrifying and magnetic figure.
Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy .... Most. Depressing. Book. Ever. ... even more depressing that "The Road".. seriously, I had to stop reading it for 6 months before returning to finish it. Good though :)
While L'Amour's name is synonymous with the frontier Western, Cormac McCarthy writes contemporary Wild West novels. Blood Meridian's depiction of the West is extremely graphic in its portrayal of several classic themes of the Wild West, including life v. death and cowboys v. indians.
