A tragic tale of love, All the Bright Places, written by Jennifer Niven, is a truly powerful story. Seventeen-year-old Theodore Finch, from Bartlett Indiana, introduces us to this compelling story. Tall, dark haired, and an outcast, Finch finds himself caught between two phases: the Awake and Asleep. When we meet Finch, he is standing at the ledge of a bell tower. Little does he know, he’s not the only one contemplating the jump. Here, we also have Violet Markey. She is seventeen, and counting down the days till her high school diploma is in her hands, and she’s rid of the past that haunts her everyday. As she is standing on the ledge of her school’s bell tower, she is terrified, and then, she meets Finch.
If you didn’t already notice, here at WS we are avid fans of TV, and personally I love stories, of any kind. Although storytelling is more complexly portrayed through the reading experience, television sparks a similar joy in me that reading and writing do.

I’ve been a fan of Taylor Swift since I was fourteen years old. The first song I ever heard was “Teardrops on My Guitar,” but unlike most I wasn’t immediately hooked. All I remember is one minute I was looking into her music and the next I was fully immersed into the lyrical genius that is Taylor Swift and her songwriting.
