About me: I'm a Catholic in love with my Faith. I am also a born reader. I think the first time I read a true book (beyond Arthur and the Berenstien Bears) was when I was 7... it was 'The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe'.
Reading Interests: Oh dear. I'm all over the place when it comes to books. I particularly like fantasy (especially classic fantasy, like Lewis and Tolkien), historical fiction, and satire (I'm probably the only teenager who has actually liked 'Animal Farm') Oooh, and I love Chesterton. LOVE Chesterton. And Regina Doman. I think the only generes I avoid are horror books, and those disgustingly mushy vampire novels that everyone raves about.

Cover ArtThe merchant of Venice
by Shakespeare, William, 1564-1616
What happens when you cross a greedy Jew, a woman who cannot marry the man of her choice, a foolish but brave and loyal man, and a merchant who loses everything? Here's the punchline... wait for it... You get Shakespeare. Why isn't anyone laughing? This is a good book, and it's funny! C'mmon, give it a chance!   posted Oct 14, 2010 at 6:42PM

Cover ArtWaking Rose : a fairy tale retold
by Doman, Regina.
*fangirl scream* FISH!!!! This is one of the best books in the FTN series. However, there are adult themes throughout (handled very well), and I would not recommend this book for younger readers.   posted Oct 14, 2010 at 6:39PM

Cover ArtCharlie and the great glass elevator : the further adventures of Charlie Bucket
by Dahl, Roald.
Who said that sequals are always worse than the first book?!? I mean, who wouldn't like pernicious kinids threatening to take over the world (actually, they're just taking over an American space hotel, but that's beside the point. It's still just as cool.)   posted Oct 7, 2010 at 7:32PM

Cover ArtCharlie and the chocolate factory
by Dahl, Roald.
The movies SO did not do justice to this book. Is it wrong to like childrens' books at my age? I hope not.   posted Oct 7, 2010 at 7:28PM

Cover ArtThe lord of the rings
by Tolkien, J. R. R. 1892-1973.
Why do I like it? - Hobbits with hairy feet - Orcs with ugly faces - Dark Lords - Struggles - Failures - Successes - Catholic morals and themes which pervade the whole book!   posted Jul 22, 2010 at 3:14PM

Cover ArtMara, daughter of the Nile
by McGraw, Eloise Jarvis.
*Pretends to be Mara* "Yeah, I was bought by a creepy dude who is holding a knife to my back while I spy on the king, and then I got hired by a really handsome guy to spy on the queen... and it just so happens that the king and queen want to kill each other."   posted Jul 8, 2010 at 11:06AM

Cover ArtChristy
by Marshall, Catherine, 1914-1983
If you like depressing novels, this one's for you... it wouldn't have been so depressing if everyone didn't die, and if Christy had actually decided which guy she liked more: the handsome, creepy preacher or the eccentric, cranky, lovable doctor (isn't it rather obvious who I would choose? :D) Anywhoo, liked the book, wouldn't reread it.   posted Jul 8, 2010 at 11:03AM

Cover ArtThe shadow of the bear : a fairy tale retold
by Doman, Regina.
Two words: Bear and Fish. Now you know. Team Denniston! 'Cause Catholic guys with a mission are WAY better than Vampires. :)   posted Jul 8, 2010 at 11:00AM

Cover ArtDo hard things : a teenage rebellion against low expectations
by Harris, Alex
A stunning book... It left me literally speachless. And excited. It presents a horrid truth that all youth face now. We are not seen as useful. Our main purpose is to party and be irrisponsible until we enter college (and beyond?!?). We are irrisponsible, and therefore ’good’ if we get by in school with passing grades. But that’s not our purpose. We can do hard things. And we will. Any person can read this book. Every person should. Prepare for change. Join the Rebelution.   posted Jan 11, 2010 at 5:23PM

Cover ArtSun and moon, ice and snow
by George, Jessica Day
This was an amazing story based off of the Scandanavian tale,’East of the Sun and West of the Moon.’ Definetly worth reading.   posted Oct 7, 2009 at 5:02PM

Cover Art20,000 leagues under the sea
by Jules Verne
A wonderful story of hate, revenge, adventure, and deep sea diving! I love Jules Verne and this book was one of his best.   posted Aug 19, 2009 at 10:57AM

Cover ArtThe complete fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm
by Grimm, Jacob
I’ve read through this book 5 or 6 times, and there is always something new and exciting staring up through its pages at me. I love this book and recommend it to anybody.   posted Aug 19, 2009 at 10:54AM

Cover ArtSnow treasure [compact disc]
by McSwigan, Marie
