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.
The Fault in Our Stars novel - By John Green. Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten.

"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."

The Phantom of the Opera (Modern Library Classics) by Gaston Leroux
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.

GEORGE CLOONEY Favourite book: War & Peace by Leo Tolstoy
War and Peace is a novel by the Russian author Leo Tolstoy, first published in 1869. The work is epic in scale and is regarded as one of the most important works of world literature
"To the Lighthouse" — The novel that established Virginia Woolf as a leading writer of the twentieth century, "To the Lighthouse" is made up of three powerfully charged visions into the life of one family living in a summer house off the rocky coast of Scotland. As time winds its way through their lives, the Ramsays face, alone and simultaneously, the greatest of human challenges and it greatest triumph--the human capacity for change.

The Castle / Franz Kafka
Worth Reading, Book Worth, Franz Kafka, Book Jackets, Kafka Castles
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.

The Silmarillion / J.R.R. Tolkien
Worth Reading, Book Worth, J R R, Bookish Things, Rings, Favorite Book, Middle Earth, Silmarillion Prelord, Jrr Tolkien
This is one of my favorite books. It's arguably dense and boring, but the world is beautiful and the historical narrative of his fantasy seems so thorough that it could be -scratch that- SHOULD be real.
Those interested in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth should not be without this grand volume that tells the tragic tale of the struggle for control of the Silmarils, a struggle that would determine the history of the world long before the War of the Ring.
