A Moving Read.

I don’t know how many books I’ve read but none of them have touched me as quite much as this book. Simply put John Green is a genius. I went into this book only knowing two things, that it was about cancer and according to all the reviews on...

A great zombie killing read!

I really liked the whole zombie aspect of this book. I’ll admit I was weary to read this because of the zombies ( I’m too squeamish to read about dead guys walking around and blood) , but I surprisingly enjoyed it! I loved that Kate is smart and independent and...
