FlippedFlipped by Wendelin Van Draanen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Some of us get dipped in flat, some in satin, some in gloss...
But every once you will find someone who’s iridescent, and when you do, nothing will ever compare.

The movie was highly-recommended and I loved it. It was almost identical to the book.

This story is written from the points-of-view of Bryce and Juli, with overlapping events. It showcased the characters' personalities. The author wrote it in a way that I can feel when the characters start to mature. It's funny and entertaining. It made me want to fall in love again. Ah, to be young and in love! :)

I wish people could see both sides of the story in real life. There would probably be less misunderstandings and more happy endings.

Fahrenheit 451

Fahrenheit 451Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

People need quality information, the leisure to digest it, and the freedom to act on what has been learned.

There's something about dystopian novels that attract me as a reader. I thought I had to adjust myself with the fact that this book was published in 1953 and it's describing today as a time where books are banned and burned. Oh horrors! Well, I need not adjust because most of what was written here stays true and still applies to current society, even symbolically speaking. Thus, we consider this a classic.
