"Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself."— John Green


Holiday Gift Guide: Fantasy

I'm doing something new this holiday season; I wanted to give book recommendations that would make good gifts!  So I'm going to pick themes  and list books that I think are the best of the best, making great gifts to the book lovers in your life!  I will preface this by stating most of my recommendations will be YA, so keep that in mind!
Books to Buy for the Fantasy Book Lover! 

Fantasy was my first love.  As a kid I read all the fantasy books I could get my hands on, and I especially loved fairy tales.  Now my tastes run a little bit more sophisticated, but a good fairy tale retelling is always guaranteed to suck me in.  Plus, now I get to read the darker versions of fantasy which I love.  So I picked some books that I think fit into all the great fantasy categories!
