Synopsis- Todd Anderson and his friends at Welton Academy can hardly believe how different life is since their new English professor, the flamboyant John Keating, has challenged them to “make your lives extraordinary! ” Inspired by Keating, the boys resurrect the Dead Poets Society–a secret club where, free from the constraints and expectations of school and parents, they let their passions run wild. As Keating turns the boys on to the great words of Byron, Shelley, and Keats, they discover not only the beauty of language, but the importance of making each moment count.But the Dead Poets pledges soon realize that their newfound freedom can have tragic consequences. Can the club and the individuality it inspires survive the pressure from authorities determined to destroy their dreams?
I just finished one of the greatest books of all time. Dead Poets Society is not only about a couple boys changing their minds about poetry. It is about a group of boys realizing that they can not enjoy life by being restricted to their authoritative figures. They learn that individualism and pursuing your own dreams is the key to happiness.
I of course watched the movie before reading the book, but there was no lesser or more love for either the movie or the book. I loved them both equally!

Synopsis- A charming novel about falling in love (or like) in the digital age—the never-before-seen full story
Madeline and Elliot meet at a New York City restaurant opening. Flirtation—online—ensues. A romance, potentially eternal, possibly doomed, begins.
And, like most things in life today, their early exchanges are available to be scrutinized and interpreted by well-intentioned friends who are a mere click away.
Madeline and Elliot’s relationship unfolds through a series of thrilling, confounding, and funny exchanges with each other, and, of course, with their best friends and dubious confidants (Emily and David). The result is a brand-new kind of modern romantic comedy, in format, in content, and even in creation—the authors exchanged e-mails in real time, blind to each other’s side conversations. You will nod in appreciation and roll your eyes in recognition; you’ll learn a thing or two about how the other half approaches a new relationship . . . and you will cheer for an unexpected ending that just might restore your faith in falling in love, twenty-first-century style.
Hello my fave bookworms!
This is one of the cutest stories ever! A book entirely based off of the conversations between best friends about a relationship they are in. It was so clever!
The conversations were very accurate as well in regards to how female best friends and male best friends communicate with each other about the relationships they are in! We see that girl friends always go into detail and overthink text messages or one on one conversations with the man they are dating. And it is the complete opposite in regards to boy friends! They are very short and to the point about messages and night outs with their girls.
I honestly loved the story. I could not get enough of it!
So here are the two mini book reviews for these two amazing stories! I hope you enjoyed!
