    pudgyjeon's book review was featured in Escaping the Giant Wave.
    After reading the summary for this book, I was ready to dive in with some anticipation for a good book. To start off, the details and imagery in this book were creative and thoughtful. There was so much excitement in this novel, and it felt like the danger would never end. One thing, however, that I wish the book had was more time to develop. I felt that the whole plot was a bit rushed, and that by the end of the book, I didn't really know the characters better than when it had started. This book is less a story, and more an event to tell about, and that's why I feel like I enjoyed it less. It is an easy read, but might be mildly scary for younger readers, so I would recommend the book for ages 8+

    pudgyjeon's book review was featured in The Outsiders (M Books).
    "It seemed funny to me that the sunset she saw from her patio and, the one I saw from the back steps was the same one. Maybe the two different worlds we lived in weren't so different. We saw the same sunset." "She," being Cherry Valance, a west-side rich soc. And "I," being Ponyboy Curtis, a poor greaser who's part of a gang. His actual name is Ponyboy. And the actual setting is the 1960s, where murders, stealing, smoking, and drinking are as common as daylight. But somehow, S.E. Hinton manages to take the hard truth of that and intertwine it with a touching story of standing by each other no matter what. I was reading this book with low expectations since I normally don't enjoy school-assigned books, but I was proved wrong. It has such lovely, intricate layers of what society was like back then, then added into the gang of outsiders, and it becomes a feast of clever words for your eyes. It does have some violence in it, so I'd recommend this book for ages 10+. But other than that, I can confidently say you'll never look at the sunset the same.

    pudgyjeon's book review was featured in The Goose Girl.
    As soon as I finished reading this book, I immediately went to Dogo to write a review. In the beginning, the book was a bit hard to get into, as it was more slow-paced and uneventful, but soon after, Shannon Hale didn't disappoint. There was action, drama, and suspense! If it were a movie, I'd watch it ten times over, as it is, I'm probably going to read it multiple times. It follows along the basic plot of "The Goose Girl" by the Brothers Grimm but adds breezy and immersive descriptions, beautiful characters, and commendable plot that turns it from a bed-time story to a fantastical, spellbinding tale of betrayal, friendship, and a fair share of magic.

    pudgyjeon's book review was featured in Anne of Avonlea (Second Book in the Anne of Green Gables Series.).
    This book... This book is such a beloved classic for such good reason. It was so full of imagery and brilliant plot that I was sad to reach the end. One thing I will say though, is that Avonlea seems just a little too perfect. Aside from the one disaster and some minor scrapes, everything happens so that life flows idylly. Other than that, the book was written splendidly with lots of care. Even though this book is suitable for readers of all ages, there are many profound quotes and little gems that may not be picked up by a younger crowd. It just refreshes and makes me happy every time I read an "Anne of" book because they're so wholesome and gracefully written. The author, L.M. Montgomery is a literary genius. I can't wait to follow Anne along on her journey.
