Divergent (Divergent Trilogy #01) by Veronica Roth
Divergent (Divergent Trilogy #01)

smartchick.nina, September 2, 2011

Loved this... in some ways, very similar to the Hunger Games in "storyline" but actually very different. Instead of questioning government (like Hunger Games) it questions human values that we prize and the balance of them. I loved this and tore through it so quickly... Tris is such a likeable narrator and I'm already excited for the next one!

The Best-Loved Poems of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis by Caroline Kennedy

smartchick.nina, August 24, 2011

Loved this anthology. The diversity of the collection is great, and I fell in love with many of these and it was easy because of the format (divided by theme). Least favorite part: poems written by Jackie Kennedy...
I didn't read this for the First Lady, but found that the actual poetry is a good collection. So even if you don't really find yourself interested in the First Lady (which I was after reading this anthology) you may still love the poetry anyway.

The Schwa Was Here by Neil Shusterman
The Schwa Was Here

smartchick.nina, March 31, 2011

So funny, with great voice and humor but at the same time, full of depth and metaphor. If you have ever felt invisible or underappreciated...or if you just are in the mood for some wiseass humor this is for you.

Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver
Before I Fall

The main character of this book might at first seem like one of the mean girls, and this book could easily have gone down that route... the route of shallow series about popular Plastics like The Clique or Gossip Girl.
Instead, I found this to be a refreshingly honest read, the story of a girl who is trying to fine her own way in life and getting a last chance to try.

Knight's Tale : Shooting Script (01 Edition) by Brian Helgeland
Knight's Tale : Shooting Script (01 Edition)

smartchick.nina, February 23, 2011

I love love love this movie. It's one of my favorites... mixing whimsy with excitement and an extremely well-written story. The language of the characters mirrors that of old England... some of the dialogue in the scenes sounds like poetry (read William's love letter to Jocelyn or any one of Chaucer's introductions).
