When I say I want to read the book before seeing the movie, I don’t want brownie points or bragging rights. I want to be able to read the book with my imagined world and idea of the characters without the movie’s influence at least once. After you see the movie there’s always some part of it that sticks in your head for a long time and you lose the enjoyment of making it up yourself.

Thank. You. For. Saying. This.

Truths!

It bothers me when adult book reviewers say things like, “This book has kissing and uses the d-word, so it’s appropriate for readers 16+.” Like, excuse me, but what alternate world are you living in where you have to be a junior in high school to handle the d-word? Kids in my charter school were unabashedly using the f-word by sixth grade, and some of them had quite a bit of personal experience with the f-word by the time they hit high school. So let’s not keep good books out of the hands of kids just because they offend your delicate sensibilities.
