Review: The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall

Review: The Conspiracy of Us by Maggie Hall

I was tempted to DNF The Conspiracy of Us several times in the first 100 or so pages, but I’m glad I stuck with it.  The plot was silly, Avery, the MC, was too Bella Swan-ish , and the two guys (of course it’s two) attracting her attention were not at all appealing.  As I continued reading, some strange things happened.  The plot, which grew increasingly ludicrous, was actually pretty fun, as long as you don’t spend too much time thinking… Read more »

That Time When the Paper Towns Movie Was Filming In My Backyard *

That Time When the Paper Towns Movie Was Filming In My Backyard *

* OK, not exactly my backyard, but rather my neighborhood’s courtyard right off my back patio. While I was on my 5 month blogging hiatus, THINGS happened that I never got to share with you here.  One of the coolest things was the day in November that the movie adaptation of John Green’s book, Paper Towns, filmed some scenes around 100 feet from my back door.  I was aware that Paper Towns was being turned into a movie, but I had no… Read more »

Review: The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson

Review: The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson

I purchased The Name of the Star two years ago at a book event with Maureen Johnson and Stephanie Perkins.  This was very shortly after I started blogging and joined Twitter, and at the time of the event, all I knew about Johnson was that she was hilarious on Twitter.  She was even funnier in person, and I thought, “I cannot wait to read this woman’s books.”  And then this book, along with the sequel, which I also purchased at… Read more »
