Anthem by Ayn Rand

AmyChen, January 2, 2011

I liked this book. I'm not saying it was the best book in the world, but it really made me think about the future of our own society.
...Also, I'm obsessed with the game BioShock. So that probably made me like it more, considering that the second game is based off of Anthem.

The Bell Jar (P.S.) by Sylvia Plath
The Bell Jar (P.S.)

AmyChen, January 1, 2011

I couldn't remember very many books I read in 2010 due to my awful memory, but the Bell Jar was one of my favorites. It started out a little too feminine for me, but after the main character's life (based off of Sylvia Plath's own life) starts spiraling downhill the book becomes very interesting and made me want to read until the very end. It showed how a person's life can change, no matter how "normal" they seem in the beginning.
