Saturday Read: Confessions of the Sullivan Sisters by Natalie Standiford

Since school started back up last week, I wasn't feeling like working too hard when it came to my leisure reading. I had received "Confessions of the Sullivan Sisters" a while back and honestly, dismissed it because of the juvenile cover. I read the description, and while it sounded intriguing, I didn't feel any urge to pick it up until now.

Saturday Read: Nicholas and Alexandra, by Robert K. Massie

As the holiday season is upon us and most of us bookworms have time to indulge in something non-school related, I decided to give into a guilty pleasure that has been collecting dust for the better part of a year. You don't have to read this exact book, but I encourage you to delve into something non-fiction that is NOT what you're studying in school!

Saturday Read: Clockwork Angel, by Cassandra Clare

"Clockwork Angel" by Cassandra Clare is the first in her new trilogy, titled "The Infernal Devices."

Saturday Read: Change of Heart, by Jodi Picoult

I know, I know. I'm a total book hypocrite. I used to make fun of women who read boatloads of Jodi Picoult and look at me now! This is the 4th. book of hers I've reviewed for CC! But, I've said it once, I'll say it again - she is GREAT for entertaining reading.

The Ten Novels that Every Girl Should Read

In the late 1800s, children’s literature split into two overall genres: boys’ books and girls’ books. Although girls’ literature continues to be published today, the recognition of female protagonists is often overlooked. In a world full of Mowgli’s (from The Jungle Book) and Harry Potter’s, it’s hard for girl characters to get the recognition they deserve.

Saturday Read: We Were Here, by Matt de la Pena

Since I'm elbow-deep in midterms, I've found myself reaching for young adult fiction recently. I've said it once, I'll say it again: it's entertaining and relatively easy to read, making for a relaxing break from my many textbooks.

Saturday Read: Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen

"Water for Elephants" tells the story of Jacob Jankowski. It flips back and forth between the present when Jacob is ninety or ninety-three (he is a little unsure and doesn't really care) and when he was 23. The modern-day Jacob lives in a nursing home, where he is far from happy and very aware of his gradual, but inevitable demise.
