When Winston finds love with Julia, he discovers that life does not have to be dull and deadening, and awakens to new possibilities.

Yet Big Brother will not tolerate dissent - even in the mind. For those with original thoughts they invented Room 101 . . .
Ninteen Eighty-Four is George Orwell's terrifying vision of a totalitarian future in which everything and everyone is slave to a tyrannical regime.
In order to review as many books as possible without stressing myself out, I’m going to be super mini- tweet style reviews to balance my usual review style. I love reviewing books, but sometimes writing a long review is daunting, and then I end up not reviewing the many, many books I’ve read. All my Short and Tweet reviews will be 140 characters or less. Thanks to Tif from Tif Talks Books for the idea!
Feel free to write your own Short and Tweet Reviews, just add your link below! Each month will have it’s own linky to add your reviews, and you can add multiple links if you do several Short and Tweet Reviews a month.
