Thoughts from this Tuesday:
- My Book Club page has been updated with the last two recent books I read, check it out.
- The Fault in Our Stars (TFIOS) by John Green is a young adult (YA) book I read over my winter break. YA books are my favorite genre because of how real they are with emotion. There is a certain transparency and innocence that comes with the feeling and emotion expressed in YA novels, one much forgotten about in the adult world. I like to remember that it is okay to be vulnerable and reading YA novels helps me do that. TFIOS is beautifully written, I could not put it down and read it in about two days. It was funny, real, and heartbreaking, all of which are quintessentially very YA. I learned that this book is in the process of being made into a movie, in theaters everywhere summer of 2014.
- I recently saw a great TEDx talk that I'd love to share with everyone. This fellow sister is from my home state (Texas) and went to a university just a bit further south than my alma mater. She has a very important message that I hope hits close to home for many, "What defines you?"
- This song has been on my mind a lot lately
