    "I absolutely loved this book. Carrie's story starts off grim and it easy to place yourself in her shoes. Even if you haven't been a victim of bullying, you can certainly relate to those subjected to it on an emotional level. However, in this story, Carrie just so happens to have telekinetic powers at her disposal to exact her revenge on those who pushed her around. This is the best anti-heroine book I've read. Unfortunately, the movie wasn't very good in my opinion. "

    "This is such a classic novel so I felt compelled to sit down and read it. I thought it was better than the movie overall and I normally don't like romance but this was well written enough to keep me reading."

    "Slow, very very slow. I heard so much about this series and how amazing it was, so I started with this, the first one. It was a struggle to get through it and I was not as impressed with the main character as everyone around her, or everyone else in the world, apparently. The payoff is okay, but not so much worth trudging through the rest of it."

    "Madame Bovary: Provincial Manners (Oxford World's Classics) is book by Gustave Flaubert. It is available from Amazon for $40.00 for a mass market paperback. The price is very inflated and coming from 3rd party. The story is about Emma Rouault meeting and marrying Charles Bovary. Emma's life doesn't go as planned and eventually spirals downhill after meeting Rodolphe. It fits the topic."

    "Anna Dressed in Blood is the first book in the series Anna Dressed in Blood Series by Kendare Blake. While most readers see a run-up of a "romance" between the ghost and the hunter as the storyline of the book and think that they would be treated to a Twilight re-tread. Apparently, this book deviates from that boorishly overused story line."
