Blogging 1984

By Janet ManleyDecember 31, 2016

By Emma W.December 31, 2016
When my brother first read The Catcher in the Rye—he loved it—I asked my mom if I could read it, too (tho when did I start consulting with my mom on whether I could read a book?), and she said, "No. It's in appropriate" or something like... More  →

Blogging The Great Gatsby

By ElodieDecember 31, 2016
There are some things we simply have to do, like assigned reading, taxes, and dying. I can’t do anything about two of those, but the first one? I can’t really do anything about that, either. What I CAN do is read The Great Gatsby and... More  →

Blogging Lord of the Flies

By ElodieDecember 31, 2016
You might remember me as the person who blogged The Great Gatsby and hated every minute that Tom Buchanan SPENT sapping my lifeblood with his dumbness. Now that the people have spoken, I’m back with Lord of the Flies. But if... More  →
