Confessions of a Bibliophile

An aspiring writer and bookstore employee with an incredibly bad book-buying habit... I'll read just about anything (so long as it will appeal to my interests in some way), but my main loves are YA and sci-fi/fantasy. I also like quirky history and science books and will book nerd. A lot. Currently in the process of weeding out my personal library. Find me on Twitter @princess_starr or check out my YA book, Snowfall, on Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/240027
Fahrenheit 451 - Ray Bradbury I think that this is one of those books that everyone needs, and also that people need to reread it every once in a while. It’s not just about censorship—it’s about the need to face the things that make us uncomfortable and move away from that which numbs us. When you realize that Guy’s been questioning his role as a fireman for a while, I found it to be a moving moment. And when I say that it needs to be reread, it’s because that a lot of the issues that the book deals with continue to be problems, whether it’s the censorship, or people shutting themselves with entertainment, or blindly listening to the media. A must read for everyone.
