Everyone is Weird in Their Own Way

Today I overheard someone saying that they don’t care if people think their weird or don’t like them because their friends think their awesome. That got me thinking, everyone is weird and it’s a good thing. I would say that my friends and I are pretty weird, and I never really thought that other people could be as weird as us. But they are. I don’t mean it in a bad way, but most people seem to accept the fact that their different and they don’t want to be normal. But what is the definition of normal? According to Dictionary.com the definition of normal is “conforming to the standard or the common type; usual; not abnormal; regular; natural.” So what is considered normal? This is a difficult question to answer because it varies from person to person. Normal is one of those words that means something different to each person. When people say they like being weird do they really mean they like being normal? Is being weird considered normal? Is there even such thing as being normal?

(Note: This is my own opinion. It’s just a thought I had and is something to think about.)

Legend, Prodigy, Champion

I just finished the final book in the Legend Trilogy by Marie Lu, and honestly it is one of my favorite trilogies. I really liked that is was told from both Day and June’s point of views. Lu is an amazing job at developing the two characters. During Legend Day and June had such different mindsets. Day is the most wanted criminal by the Republic, and he hates everything about it. June on the other hand is the most celebrated prodigy and is brainwashed with their lies. Lu does and an incredible job at writing from two totally opposite views.

(Warning Potential Spoilers)

This series had a perfect ending. The ending of Champion made me cry, but it was so sweet and cute. Champion is the most suspenseful book because Day is dying, and the Colonies are invading and you don’t know who is going to be alive in the end. Day and June’s ending was perfect.

I would definitely recommend these books, if you want a different take on dystopian societies. They are action-packed and unique compared to most dystopian novels.
