Bookmarks with Books - Matching #2

I have gotten a couple requests (some in person, some online) to make another on of these, so here it is!

The first match I have decided to make is Beneath the Glitter by Elle and Blair Fowler with a bookmark that says, "It's a girl thing!" on it. I have decided on this match because 1) The colours are both girly (syterotype, but still) 2) The book is targetted towards girls and so is the bookmark and 3) The cute dog on the cover looks like it  could bundle up with that pile of stuff on the cover!

The second match I have made is Twilight by Stephanie Meyer with a red, magnetic bookmark. I thought that this would be a good match because of the red on both the bookmark and the book. The bookmark will bring out the apple in the cover. Also, the bookmark is small and doesn't peak out very much so it doesn't draw too much attention and will keep the cover the centre of attention. And, although this doesn't have anything to do with why I chose this bookmark, there is a quote on it. On the front it says, "Books are the most quietest and constant of friends," by Charles W. Eliot. On the back, there is another saying. It is, "Hold that thought."

The last, but defiantly not least of the matches is The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. I have matched this book with a bookmark that is blue and has cupcakes on it. It also has, in a cute font, "Sweet!" I decided to do this because they are both blue and I think that the cupcakes will add a little bit of colour to the plain blue, black and white cover of The Fault in Out Stars.

I hope you enjoyed this post on the matching! Remember to subscribe to my posts.

Divergent Book Review

         Divergent is another dystopian themed novel, complete with action and intrigue, romance and hate, war scenes and meadows. But most of all, Divergent is about a single choice. Every single person, after turning age 16, must choose which faction to belong in: Candor the honest or Abnegation the selfless or Dauntless the brave or Erudite the knowledgeable or Amity the peaceful. This is nearly impossible for Beatrice though, after finding out what the results were for her test. However, the real question is hidden under layers of lies, which Beatrice has to uncover… Before it’s too late.
         I loved Divergent SO much! After reading this, I have concluded that it was 4.5/5, a must read, and one of my all-time favourite books. I read it in all of my extra time, and stayed up as long as my body would allow just finishing it off! I loved all the characters, and how much the story pulled me in. Every time I finished a chapter I decided that one more chapter wouldn’t hurt. Then that one chapter turned into two, then three… The plot was very fast paced – very me – and was extremely descriptive. I was with the characters – Beatrice, Four, Christina, Will – every single one! This wouldn’t have been possible if the characters weren’t well developed. The only thing that is a down-side to this book is the society. Veronica Roth, the author, obviously spent a lot of time planning out the plot, characters, and ity-bity details, but somehow missed the government. It was a bit confusing to understand why and how the society formed, although that lack of information didn’t pull this read down. I would defiantly recommend it to anyone 11 or over (kisses and inappropriate content references did occur throughout the book)… Please read it.

I'm Back!

Hey guys! I'm back from my trip!! It was a lot of fun. I went on rollercoasters, went down waterslides, and read books! Be sure to check by frequently for book reviews, as well as a special post.

I'll give you a hint... I'm summarizing my vacation up in a book review (although it's more like a 12-day review/reflection in the format of a book review)!!

I missed you all.

Divergent #3

I found these hilarious photos on Here it is.

Plus, a couple fan-made book covers for the third book, if the name is Convergent (I personally like the first one best):
