Came up with a great way to start talking about book to movie adaptations or book to tv series adaptations! :) I'll be adding it to the site at the end of April when exams are over!
That being said, yes I did watch Divergent and it was a very decent book-to-movie adaptation but, personally, Shailene Woodley's acting just didn't cut it for me? I don't know, some parts I was like, "YES! YOU'RE ACTING IS SO GOOD!" and others I was like, "Um, what emotion are you trying to convey. I don't get it." But mostly Theo James is a work of art hehe. If you want to talk/fangirl/fanboy about it, feel free to neomail me! :)
Got up to 1000 views! Yay! A big thanks to everyone who continues to visit this site and contribute their book recommendations! You guys are awesometastical :D

Title: The Great Gatsby
Author: F. Scott Fitzgerald
Date Published: --/--/1925
Recommended By: Rika
Summary: A portrait of the Jazz Age in all of its decadence and excess, Gatsby captured the spirit of the author's generation and earned itself a permanent place in American mythology. Self-made, self-invented millionaire Jay Gatsby embodies some of Fitzgerald's--and his country's--most abiding obsessions: money, ambition, greed, and the promise of new beginnings. "Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgiastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter--tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther.... And one fine morning--" Gatsby's rise to glory and eventual fall from grace becomes a kind of cautionary tale about the American Dream.

Visitor Comments:
Nina - Now, I know this is a book many American high school students probably never looked at after they finished it. I was like that too for many school readings, and I never thought I would find myself loving a book considered to be "classic literature". But The Great Gatsby is, with no doubt, one of the most powerful books I've ever read. Fitzgerald writes with a lyrical, powerful voice that easily transports you to the era of the 50's, and into the tumultuous lives of the rich and the poor of New York. I guarantee that even if you don't love The Great Gatsby as much as I do, you'll definitely walk away feeling like a changed person.

Title: Les Misérables
Author: Victor Hugo
Date Published: --/--/1862
Recommended By: Rico and Weapon
Summary: In this story of the trials of the peasant Jean Valjean—a man unjustly imprisoned, baffled by destiny, and hounded by his nemesis, the magnificently realized, ambiguously malevolent police detective Javert—Hugo achieves the sort of rare imaginative resonance that allows a work of art to transcend its genre.

Les Misérables is at once a tense thriller that contains one of the most compelling chase scenes in all literature, an epic portrayal of the nineteenth-century French citizenry, and a vital drama—highly particularized and poetic in its rendition but universal in its implications—of the redemption of one human being

Visitor Comments:
Weapon - If you love the adaptations, too, this is well worth reading; it's a treasure trove of depth and detail that can never be conveyed through musical or film.

Title: Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire #1)
Author: George R.R. Martin
Date Published: 08/28/1996
Recommended By: Becky
Summary: Long ago, in a time forgotten, a preternatural event threw the seasons out of balance. In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the north of Winterfell, sinister forces are massing beyond the kingdom's protective Wall. To the south, the king's powers are failing—his most trusted adviser dead under mysterious circumstances and his enemies emerging from the shadows of the throne. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the frozen land they were born to. Now Lord Eddard Stark is reluctantly summoned to serve as the king's new Hand, an appointment that threatens to sunder not only his family but the kingdom itself.

Title: Going Postal
Author: Terry Pratchett
Date Published: 09/25/2004
Recommended By: Weapon
Summary: By all rights, Moist should have met his maker. Instead, it's Lord Vetinari, supreme ruler of Ankh-Morpork, who promptly offers him a job as Postmaster. Since his only other option is a nonliving one, Moist accepts the position - and the hulking golem watchdog who comes along with it, just in case Moist was considering abandoning his responsibilities prematurely.

Getting the moribund Postal Service up and running again, however, may be a near-impossible task, what with literally mountains of decades-old undelivered mail clogging every nook and cranny of the broken-down post office building; and with only a few creaky old postmen and one rather unstable, pin-obsessed youth available to deliver it. Worse still, Moist could swear the mail is talking to him. Worst of all, it means taking on the gargantuan, money-hungry Grand Trunk clacks communication monopoly and its bloodthirsty piratical head, Mr. Reacher Gilt. But it says on the building Neither Rain Nor Snow Nor Glom of Nit...Inspiring words (admittedly, some of the bronze letters have been stolen), and for once in his wretched life Moist is going to fight. And if the bold and impossible are what's called for, he'll do it - in order to move the mail, continue breathing, get the girl, and specially deliver that invaluable commodity that every human being (not to mention troll, dwarf, and, yes, even golem) requires: hope.

Title: Guards Guards!
Author: Terry Pratchett
Date Published: --/--/1989
Recommended By: Weapon
Summary: Here there be dragons . . . and the denizens of Ankh-Morpork wish one huge firebreather would return from whence it came. Long believed extinct, a superb specimen of draco nobilis ("noble dragon" for those who don't understand italics) has appeared in Discworld's greatest city. Not only does this unwelcome visitor have a nasty habit of charbroiling everything in its path, in rather short order it is crowned King (it is a noble dragon, after all . . .).

Meanwhile, back at Unseen University, an ancient and long-forgotten volume--The Summoning of Dragons--is missing from the Library's shelves. To the rescue come Captain Vimes, Constable Carrot, and the rest of the Night Watch who, along with other brave citizens, risk everything, including a good roasting, to dethrone the flying monarch and restore order to Ankh-Morpork (before it's burned to a crisp).

Title: Antigoddess (Goddess War #1)
Author: Kendara Blake
Date Published: 09/10/2013
Recommended By: Malisha
Summary: Old Gods never die…

Or so Athena thought. But then the feathers started sprouting beneath her skin, invading her lungs like a strange cancer, and Hermes showed up with a fever eating away his flesh. So much for living a quiet eternity in perpetual health.

Desperately seeking the cause of their slow, miserable deaths, Athena and Hermes travel the world, gathering allies and discovering enemies both new and old. Their search leads them to Cassandra—an ordinary girl who was once an extraordinary prophetess, protected and loved by a god.

These days, Cassandra doesn't involve herself in the business of gods—in fact, she doesn't even know they exist. But she could be the key in a war that is only just beginning.

Because Hera, the queen of the gods, has aligned herself with other of the ancient Olympians, who are killing off rivals in an attempt to prolong their own lives. But these anti-gods have become corrupted in their desperation to survive, horrific caricatures of their former glory. Athena will need every advantage she can get, because immortals don't just flicker out.

Every one of them dies in their own way. Some choke on feathers. Others become monsters. All of them rage against their last breath.

The Goddess War is about to begin.

Title: Born Wicked (The Cahill Witch Chronicles #1)
Author: Jessica Spotswood
Date Published: 02/07/2012
Recommended By: Jackie
Summary: Everybody knows Cate Cahill and her sisters are eccentric. Too pretty, too reclusive, and far too educated for their own good. But the truth is even worse: they're witches. And if their secret is discovered by the priests of the Brotherhood, it would mean an asylum, a prison ship—or an early grave.

Before her mother died, Cate promised to protect her sisters. But with only six months left to choose between marriage and the Sisterhood, she might not be able to keep her word... especially after she finds her mother's diary, uncovering a secret that could spell her family's destruction. Desperate to find alternatives to their fate, Cate starts scouring banned books and questioning rebellious new friends, all while juggling tea parties, shocking marriage proposals, and a forbidden romance with the completely unsuitable Finn Belastra.

If what her mother wrote is true, the Cahill girls aren't safe. Not from the Brotherhood, the Sisterhood—not even from each other.

Summary: Please note that this summary contains spoilers if you did not read Eragon or Eldest (The Inheritance Cycle #1 and #2)

Following the colossal battle against the Empire's warriors on the Burning Plains, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives. Still there is more at hand for the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by a tangle of promises he may not be able to keep.

First is Eragon's oath to his cousin Roran: to help rescue Roran's beloved, Katrina, from King Galbatorix's clutches. But Eragon owes his loyalty to others, too. The Varden are in desperate need of his talents and strength—as are the elves and dwarves. When unrest claims the rebels and danger strikes from every corner, Eragon must make choices—choices that take him across the Empire and beyond, choices that may lead to unimagined sacrifice.

Eragon is the greatest hope to rid the land of tyranny. Can this once-simple farm boy unite the rebel forces and defeat the king?

Summer - Brisingr is a thrilling book and the best of the Inheritance Cycle in my opinion. There may be a great deal of positive reviews for this series and an equal number of negative ones, but it all depends on your personal taste. It is in fact my favourite novel of all I've ever read. I mean, magic and dragons c: In contrary to what most people say, the story doesn't overly resemble The Lord of the Rings, really. And even if it does contain similar names and characters, it doesn't affect the storyline adversely. The the pace is appropriate, characters are developed, and the plot is engaging, full of twists. Take a chance, flip the page - you certainly will not be disappointed.

Against all odds, Katniss has won the Hunger Games. She and fellow District 12 tribute Peeta Mellark are miraculously still alive. Katniss should be relieved, happy even.

As time draws near for Katniss and Peeta to visit the districts on the Capitol's cruel Victory Tour, the stakes are higher than ever. If they can't prove, without a shadow of a doubt, that they are lost in their love for each other, the consequences will be horrifying.

Summary: When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder -- much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing -- not even a smear of blood -- to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It's also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace's world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know. . . .

Summary: When sixteen-year-old Tessa Gray crosses the ocean to find her brother, her destination is England, the time is the reign of Queen Victoria, and something terrifying is waiting for her in London's Downworld, where vampires, warlocks and other supernatural folk stalk the gaslit streets. Only the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the world of demons, keep order amidst the chaos.

Kidnapped by the mysterious Dark Sisters, members of a secret organization called The Pandemonium Club, Tessa soon learns that she herself is a Downworlder with a rare ability: the power to transform, at will, into another person. What's more, the Magister, the shadowy figure who runs the Club, will stop at nothing to claim Tessa's power for his own.

Friendless and hunted, Tessa takes refuge with the Shadowhunters of the London Institute, who swear to find her brother if she will use her power to help them. She soon finds herself fascinated by—and torn between—two best friends: James, whose fragile beauty hides a deadly secret, and blue-eyed Will, whose caustic wit and volatile moods keep everyone in his life at arm's length . . . everyone, that is, but Tessa. As their search draws them deep into the heart of an arcane plot that threatens to destroy the Shadowhunters, Tessa realizes that she may need to choose between saving her brother and helping her new friends save the world. . . . and that love may be the most dangerous magic of all.

Title: Divergent (Divergent #1)
Author: Veronica Roth
Date Published: 05/03/2011
Recommended By: Jackie
Summary: In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue--Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is--she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are--and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves . . . or it might destroy her.

Summer - This book is amazing, I would indeed highly recommend it. And rant about them all day. There's a cliffhanger at the end of the second book though, so if you're not a fan of that, I suggest you wait till the last book of the trilogy is out.

Elena - Divergent is one of my favorite books ever. I think the plot is so intriguing, and if you love dystopian novels, I would definitely recommend reading it! Divergent kept me entertained for hours, and I've probably read this book over five times. (;

PF - I am never this enthusiastic about books, but I LOVE the Divergent trilogy. It has become my new favorite book, and I'm waiting for the third one to come out. You will stay up for hours on end reading this, and... wow. If you haven't read it before, you're missing out on something great, like I once did.

Date Published: 09/17/1999
Recommended By: Becky
Summary: Young buck Rannoch was born on the night his father was murdered and into a herd of deer where hunger for power has gradually whittled away at all that is true and good. He knows he must escape to survive. Chased by stags, with their fearsome antlers sharpened for the kill, he begins a treacherous journey into the unknown, and ahead of him lies a shocking and formidable search for truth and goodwill in the shadow of the Great Mountain.

One day he will have to return to his home and face his destiny among the deer to fulfill the prophecy that has persistently given them hope: that one day a fawn will be born with the mark of an oak leaf on his forehead and that fawn's courage will lead all the deer to freedom. Filled with passion and a darkness that gradually, through Rannoch's courage in the face of adversity, lifts to reveal an overwhelming feeling of light, Fire Bringer is a tremendous, spirited story that takes the reader deep into the hearts and minds of its characters as they fight for their right to live in peace.

Summary: In the blink of an eye. Everyone disappears. GONE.

Except for the young. Teens. Middle schoolers. Toddlers. But not one single adult. No teachers, no cops, no doctors, no parents. Just as suddenly, there are no phones, no internet, no television. No way to get help. And no way to figure out what's happened.

Hunger threatens. Bullies rule. A sinister creature lurks. Animals are mutating. And the teens themselves are changing, developing new talents--unimaginable, dangerous, deadly powers--that grow stronger by the day.

It's a terrifying new world. Sides are being chosen, a war is imminent. Townies against rich kids. Bullies against the weak. Powerful against powerless. And time is running out: On your birthday, you disappear justlike everyone else...

So when Xander's face appears on-screen at her Matching ceremony, Cassia knows with complete certainty that he is her ideal mate... until she sees Ky Markham's face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black.

Jackie - The concept that society is perfect and no one will question authority is starting to become a really big thing in Young Adult books. This book really impressed me with the way it used this concept and put a twist to it. Though the plot developed too slowly for my taste, the ending picked up very quickly and left the reader with more questions than answers (which, hopefully, would be answered in the next book that I haven't read yet).

Title: The Lightning Thief (Percy Jackson and the Olympians #1)

Recommended By: Summer
Summary: Percy Jackson is about to be kicked out of boarding school...again. And that's the least of his troubles. Lately, mythological monsters and the gods of Mount Olympus seem to be walking straight out of the pages of Percy's Greek mythology textbook and into his life. And worse, he's angered a few of them. Zeus's master lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect.

Now Percy and his friends have just ten days to find and return Zeus's stolen property and bring peace to a warring Mount Olympus. But to succeed on his quest, Percy will have to do more than catch the true thief: he must come to terms with the father who abandoned him; solve the riddle of the Oracle, which warns him of betrayal by a friend; and unravel a treachery more powerful than the gods themselves.

Recommended By: Jackie
Summary: There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark's Eve," Neeve said. "Either you're his true love . . . or you killed him.

It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive.

Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them—not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.

His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.

But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can't entirely explain. He has it all—family money, good looks, devoted friends—but he's looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys: Adam, the scholarship student who resents all the privilege around him; Ronan, the fierce soul who ranges from anger to despair; and Noah, the taciturn watcher of the four, who notices many things but says very little.

For as long as she can remember, Blue has been warned that she will cause her true love to die. She never thought this would be a problem. But now, as her life becomes caught up in the strange and sinister world of the Raven Boys, she's not so sure anymore.

Me: aw this character is awesome I like them so much!
Character: *dies*
Me: (ノ✿⊙◡⊙)ノ ︵ ┻━┻

I'll come back for you I whisper as I caress the books I can't afford


Person: hey have you read any good books lately?
Me: are you ready for this conversation

It either takes me 5 months to read a book or I read five of them in 2 days. There is no in between.

The problem with reading a good book is that you want to finish the book, but you don't want to finish the book.

YA novel: *has supernatural elements*
critics: THE NEXT HARRY POTTER
YA novel: *has love triangle*
critics: THE NEXT TWILIGHT
YA novel: *is a dystopian novel*
critics: THE NEXT HUNGER GAMES
critics: YA NOVELS CAN NEVER BE ORIGINAL
critics: THEY'RE ALWAYS JUST LIKE PREVIOUS YA NOVELS
critics: ALL OF THEM

When I say "I wish they would turn this book into a movie" what I really mean is "I wish they would turn this book into a 17-hour-long spectacle that includes every single solitary detail and doesn't deviate at all from the storyline and has perfect casting"

those witty, sarcastic characters who hide their tragic backstories behind a perfect smirk (◕‿◕✿)

there's characters you love
and then there's your babies

Sometimes I get 'readers-block', like I can't read anything to save my life, I'll start 10 books and stop each after seven pages because all I'll want is to already have read that book and not actually read it and I won't be able to focus at all and it pains me so much.

I don't understand why books have shifted from having summaries on the back of the covers to having one-line reviews.
Seriously though. I want to know what the book is about. Not that someone from the Evening Standard thinks it's a masterpiece.

me: Do I have enough time to read these books?
me: No
me: *buys books*

It literally stresses me out how many good books are out there that I still haven't read

me: *accidentally reads for 6 hours straight*
me: *finishes book and doesn't read again for six months*

You know you're in for a long haul when the book has a map on the first page

Nah I don't love that character I am in love with that character

Whenever someone comes into my room and comments on my bookshelf, I stand there smiling like a proud mother.
