Spellbound: why witchcraft is enchanting a new generation of teenage girls - The Guardian

Spellbound: why witchcraft is enchanting a new generation of teenage girls - The Guardian | Young Adult Reads | Scoop.it

When Ryan Murphy, the creator of  American Horror Story, announced that the third season of the American TV series would focus on witches, he was riding the crest of a wave. Not since the 1990s – the era of Buffy's geek goddess, Willow Rosenberg, and a scowling Fairuza Balk in The Craft – have witches been so much in demand.

The Book Thief is one of the best written books ever in my opinion and here is the trailer for the motion picture. It has been out for aeon but I have yet to see it because of my packed schedule. If the movie is as satisfactory as the book then I will no doubt go and purchase the movie. Hopefully it is as exceptional as the book.

Sunflower Foundation's curator insight, January 18, 12:41 AM

I love reading yet I have grandchildren who don't enjoy it. And I know there are children and adults everywhere like that. So this blog might be of help. Also those wishing to improve their English and looking for books that will reward their effort.
