Ben’s Recent Updates

Back to Before by Katherine Applegate
"I WOULD LIKE TO GIVE THIS BOOK 9000 STARS. I don't even know where to begin or how to talk about it. In my opinion, it's possibly the very best of all the Animorphs books so far -- also appropriate, considering it's KAA's fourth-to-last. There are..." Read more of this review »
The Other by Katherine Applegate
"   Suddenly Andalites are appearing out of the woodwork! This time, though, one of them is caught on video. Naturally, the Animorphs must investigate before Visser Three beats them to it. What they uncover is two fighter pilots who survived a cras..." Read more of this review »
The Other by Katherine Applegate
"
I understand ruthless.

I understand, maybe more than any of the others, what it means to be unsentimental. Cold, even. To see the end in the beginning and the beginning in the end.

I'm not denying that Jake, for example, doesn't make his share of to...

Remix by Non Pratt

Clear rating
It's 2016; can we stop pretending we don't judge books by their cover? Remix has amazing cover art—in particular, the way the back cover copy is arranged is a thing of beauty. Just look at it. If I hadn’t already wanted to read Remix after reading No ...more

Truth or Dare by Non Pratt
Rate this book
Clear rating
Non Pratt wrote another novel!!!

It has a gimmick that throws me back to the ’90s, but it’s fully a novel of the 2010s, fuelled as it is by the spectator society of YouTube eyeballs and the intricate liminal spaces teenagers negotiate between their on

Truth or Dare by Non Pratt

That moment when you grab a random book from an author that you really wanted to read without even read the plot and LOVED IT. LOVED IT. LOVED IT!

Christopher Moore
“I'm feeling full of tiny princes, bustling to get out into the world and start plotting against one another.”
Christopher Moore, The Serpent of Venice

Heather O'Neill
“I had to admit that I had a strong tendency to date jokers. I couldn’t say no to them. I would sit across from someone I was dating and try to imagine who in the entire world would date this nimrod other than me. But I always had to have a boyfriend. They distracted me from being sad. They baffled me with their stupidity. I refused to believe that finding love was difficult.”
Heather O'Neill, The Girl Who Was Saturday Night

Christopher Moore
“True, I am drunk, and small, and damp, but mistake not my moistness for weakness, although there's an argument to be made for that, as well.”
Christopher Moore, The Serpent of Venice

Neil Gaiman
“Grown-ups don't look like grown-ups on the inside either. Outside, they're big and thoughtless and they always know what they're doing. Inside, they look just like they always have. Like they did when they were your age. Truth is, there aren't any grown-ups. Not one, in the whole wide world.”
Neil Gaiman, The Ocean at the End of the Lane

Christopher Moore
“Latin, Greek, and English, plus a smattering of Italian and fucking French.” “Fucking French, you say? Well . . .” “Oui,” said I, in perfect fucking French.”
Christopher Moore, The Serpent of Venice
