Snap Review: The Outsiders

Title: The Outsiders

My rating: 3/5

Synopsis:

According to Ponyboy, there are two kinds of people in the world: greasers and socs. A soc (short for “social”) has money, can get away with just about anything, and has an attitude longer than a limousine. A greaser, on the other hand, always lives on the outside and needs to watch his back. Ponyboy is a greaser, and he’s always been proud of it, even willing to rumble against a gang of socs for the sake of his fellow greasers–until one terrible night when his friend Johnny kills a soc. The murder gets under Ponyboy’s skin, causing his bifurcated world to crumble and teaching him that pain feels the same whether a soc or a greaser.

Gilmore Girls Book Club: Always by Sarah Jio

always-1

If there was any other way to combine reading and the love of Gilmore Girls, this group of women clearly know how to do it right. Introducing the Gilmore Girls Book Club! A colleague of mine found a list for 13 Books Coming Out for Gilmore Girls Fans in 2017 and gauged interest from us and the rest is history. To clarify, none of these books are directly related to the Gilmore Girls nor are they on the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge. They are books reminiscent of small town living and the quirky and lovable characters we’ve grown up with.

Snap Review: Fahrenheit 451

fahrenheit

Title: Fahrenheit 451

My rating: 4/5

Synopsis:

The terrifyingly prophetic novel of a post-literate future.

Guy Montag is a fireman. His job is to burn books, which are forbidden, being the source of all discord and unhappiness. Even so, Montag is unhappy; there is discord in his marriage. Are books hidden in his house? The Mechanical Hound of the Fire Department, armed with a lethal hypodermic, escorted by helicopters, is ready to track down those dissidents who defy society to preserve and read books.

The classic dystopian novel of a post-literate future, Fahrenheit 451 stands alongside Orwell’s 1984 and Huxley’s Brave New World as a prophetic account of Western civilization’s enslavement by the media, drugs and conformity.

Bradbury’s powerful and poetic prose combines with uncanny insight into the potential of technology to create a novel which, decades on from first publication, still has the power to dazzle and shock.

Gilmore Girls Revival Review (SPOILERS)

review

SPOILERS AHEAD!

Before you keep reading, please note the warnings I have given if you have not seen the Gilmore Girls Revival on Netlfix that premiered Friday, November 25th. Most of my thoughts below are more reaction-based as opposed to summary and laying out the context. To give you some more time to contemplate reading further, I’d love to share with you all the excitement of a sponsorship from UberPrints on the above designed T-Shirt! I was able to customize a shirt for whatever I wanted, and they were super easy to work with. I’m not usually a fan of graphic tees but this was an appropriate occasion 🙂 As much of a Gilmore Girls fan I am, I own a Luke’s Diner mug, several books on Rory’s Reading Challenge List and now this shirt! I have got to expand haha.
