Romeo and Juliet

by William Shakespeare

Accurate in the amount of thought that hormonal teenagers would give to staying together when their families don't want them marrying.

...Personally, in Juliet's place, I would have said,
"Why do we not simply run from them?
Our families are stupid. Where's a horse?"
Or something along those lines. XD

Even if you hated in in English class (especially the crappy movie modernizations*), it's still a million times better than The Vampire Book Which Should Be Burned.

@Benjamin: You're the same age as I am. And the fact that you like Shakespeare is really hot. Just sayin'.

*You know, the ones where they're playing pool and speaking in iambic pentameter...

Beyond The Rocks

by Elinor Glyn

The title of this book refers to the river Lethe in Greek mythology--those who drink of it experience forgetfulness of all memories. But for the heroine, oblivion seems unattainable beyond the rocks...

This novel is about a young girl who is sold into a high society marriage and knows nothing of love until she meets a dashing philanderer. The ensuing story focuses on their romance and struggle to take the moral high ground.

While this book does not reach the emotional or intellectual depths of novels such as Wharton's "Age of Innocence," and is slighty predictable at times, nevertheless it is an enjoyable read.

Stepping Heavenward

by Mrs E. Prentiss

This is a book that I keep coming back to read. It's a beautiful story of a girl that struggles to live for God with her impulsive nature. I love watching her through her life and can't help thinking that someone is telling me about myself when I look at her life.

An incredible book.
