Secrets Series - Teaser by Hannah, Teen Blogger

Posted on January 19, 2016 at 10:46 AM
Imagine your whole world rising in flames, burning everything that you had ever known, loved, touched and cared for. Waking up in a foreign bed wondering how one day you're surrounded with loving people who took you in when nobody else wanted you, and another day the remains of your beloved home lie in front of you, nothing but burnt garbage, and you're forced to go on an adventure discovering your unwanted past . While it would be unlucky for the person living it, reading about how somebody’s life blew up in flames would make an entertaining novel. Not to sound inhuman at all but I think we all have to admit that the more sad and dramatic the content of the story, the more fun it is to read. Ever read a book about a little girl that had no problems and was happy 24/7? There is a reason why most of us haven’t.

In my opinion they are written about something of no importance (e.g. mystery, murders, female and soldier romance ending with the soldier death, magic, aliens invasion, etc.). I have read quite a number of books in my short lifetime, but I would be lying if I said many really made a difference or had any useful meaning/value. That was the main reason why I was jumping head over heels to be reading Fragile Bones by Lorna Schultz Nicholson. It is truly a unique book...

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls – Review by Kaela, Teen Blogger

Posted on December 29, 2015 at 03:13 PM
The Glass Castle is a memoir by Jeannette Walls. It’s about her childhood and having to grow up in poverty for the majority of it. This book also explains how the relationships she formed as a child shaped her into a successful adult. The Glass Castle is about Walls’ father who is a very intelligent man and loves his children endlessly even though he has many faults, her mother who always taught her to have an open mind and a kind heart even though she rarely followed her own advice, and her and her three siblings growing up mostly happy in spite of her parents’ shortcomings...
