  7. Why Are We Still Fighting About YA Lit?

    It's more complicated than "read what you want."

    Over the summer, Slate magazine's Ruth Graham ruffled some feathers by attacking the great guilty pleasure that is Young Adult Literature. The main thrust of the article involved Graham waggling her shame finger at the number of grown-ups who seemed to be stuck in Neverland—refusing to read "proper" novels in favor of the latest John Green tearfest or a dystopian sexy teen death duel.

  13. Review: The Fault in Our Stars Is Beautiful, Imperfect, and Completely Worthwhile

    Review

    I held out a spectacularly long time. I would like that known. Tears did not leave my eyes until the film's third and final act.

But I'd just like it known.
