    Aru sometimes stretched the truth so she can fit into her private middle school. When three of her classmates show up on her doorstep they catch her in her lie. They wound't believe that the Lamp of Bharata was cursed and they dared her to light it. Aru never understood lighting the lamp would destroy her world. She accidentally frees the Sleeper, the one who is determined to awaken the God of Destruction. The only way to stop the demon is find the five mythical Pandava brothers in the kingdom of death. How a teenage girl in spider-man jammies supposed to do all of that?

    Seems like a very interesting book to read. I Think that I would like the book since I have never read any adventure books.

    Sophie ans Agatha refuse to believe that they will not be getting the destinies they wanted. Sophie has always dreamed of getting kidnapped into an enchanted world (she is the most beautiful girl in Gavaldon after all). Sophie also knows that she will get extraordinary grades in the School of Good and graduate as a princess. Agatha is the perfect candidate for the School of Evil. With her black dresses, evil pet cat and her hatred for almost everyone she will most likely graduate as a villain. When they find themselves in the Endless Woods, Agatha and Sophie's destinies switch. Agatha is now going to be the princess and Sophie is going to be the villain. Now the only way to out of their fairy tale is to live through it. Will they be who they were meant to me?

    Tiangong-radar-image-720x720-mediumI'm glad that no one was hurt, but I wonder if that'll stay the same in the long run, with all of the space debris + uncontrolled substances in our atmosphere at the moment. I really hope that the debris doesn't hit the International Space Station, and that we do get to explore space a bit more! It would be a shame to be grounded, after all of the hard work in the 'sixties and seventies.

    felicisowl's book review was featured in The School for Good and Evil.
    Dazzling and brilliantly executed, The School for Good and Evil manages to be both heartwarming and seriously sweet. It's a middle-grade novel written by Soman Chainani, and it utilizes fairy-tale tropes to excellent effect –– it had me giggling for a while, because this is exactly the type of light-hearted, snappy humor that always makes me laugh. Sophie and Agatha, the two protagonists, represent why teenage girls shouldn't be taken lightly––they are characters that grow on you, and they are characters that grow with you. Like Shrek and other fairy-tale adaptations, The School for Good and Evil stays true to its roots. It's true that female villains are often the most delightfully wicked of all, and I especially liked how earnest Sophie's very turbulent, atypically teenage emotions were exploited––it was very real, and her motives were explained in a way that made sense. I think I would consider this a "light read," because it was coming-of-age and just very adorable, but––there was a lot of surprisingly hidden depth, lurking under the surface. Digging up the history and the world-building was enlightening, and the writing delves into answering some philosophical questions: What is the true nature of friendship? What even is "good and evil," exactly? What choices really matter in the long-run? We don't live in a world with castles and brambly forests and fairy-tale heroines, but that's the point––we can apply the lessons and questions from The School for Good and Evil and use it in our own worlds, in our own surroundings, in our own situations. I will tell you this: by far, the most important lesson that the School for Good and Evil strived to teach is that your nature is self-determined. We are not inherently good or evil, and we do not have to be what people expect us to be. We are more than capable of breaking out of our molds, and blazing our own paths into the future––in the real world, we can't travel back in time, but there is always (always!) room for change inside our souls.
