Books We Love!

We are scattering journals around the college, called Books We Love. If you find one, write a short review of a book you love and pass it on. We'll publish select entries on our blog.

Here is another review:
"The book, Theories of Relativity, by Barbara Haworth-Attard, opened my eyes to a different level of the cities and towns we live in. The main character is a boy named Dylan who is living on the street. It is not so much Dylan's story, but the interwining lives of the characters he meets, that drew me in. From Twitch, the drug addict, to Amber, soon-to-be single mom, to Vulture, fighting his way to the top of the pile through the manipulation and control of everyone around him; Haworth-Attard's characters drew me into their world of dirt, pain, and desperation. I will never walk down a city street the same way again. Reaslistically portraying a world right under our noses, Theories of Relativity, is a good book to read for anyone wanting a different perspective".

Other suggested books to read are:
1. The Shadow of the Wind, by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
2. A Fine dark line by Joe Lansdale
3. Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
4. Firefly Lane, The Winter Garden by Kristin Hannah
5. The Help by Kathryn Stockett
6. City of Thieves by David Banioff


  1. The Shadow of the Wind book appeals to all tastes. It is about books, a mysterious writer, spooky castles, murder, great love, interesting people, families with history and so on. I am sure that readers of the book will find it very interesting.

  2. Can't wait to read it - it sounds great!
