YA Books You'll Love No Matter Your Age

The Book Thief

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

About: It’s just a small story really, about among other things: a girl, some words, an accordionist, some fanatical Germans, a Jewish fist-fighter, and quite a lot of thievery. . . .

Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak’s groundbreaking new novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement before he is marched to Dachau.

This is an unforgettable story about the ability of books to feed the soul.

Arcade Fire release new single

Today Arcade Fire released their new single from their forthcoming album Everything Now - Creature Comfort. You might remember that they played the song live during their Primavera set. They marketed the song as a cereal commercial for some reason:

Anyway, without further ado: listen to Creature Comfort on Spotify. Just like Everything Now, the ending of the song seems to hint the beginning of the next one.

Radio Station Met With Anger After "Cruel" Tom Cruise Prank on Host

  • New Zealand radio host Simon Barnett of More FM was pranked on air by a rival station over a stolen idea yesterday.

  • After a lengthy hunt by More FM to get connected with Tom Cruise's people, The Edge's Jay-Jay, Dom & Randell decided to trick More FM's Si and Gary into believing they were getting a phone interview with Tom, who is currently filming Mission: Impossible 6 in NZ. Barnett is a huge fan of Cruise’s.

  • Barnett said the day of the interview he was so excited the night before, he couldn't sleep, and people were stopping him on the street and sending messages of congratulations and good luck. His co-hosts were also excited for him, since he's a well-known super fan of Cruise.

  • For eleven minutes, an excited Barnett interviewed "Tom Cruise," talking about his career, US politics and how he liked New Zealand, and "Tom" even invited Barnett to hang out with him, At the end of the call, Cruise was revealed to be an impersonator, and the rival hosts came on the phone laughing. Barnett waa audibly stunned and disappointed, and producer Samantha Baxter, who was in tears, expressed her anger on air. [Listen to excerpts if you wish]

  • Some listeners believe this to be a prank inception, with the two stations in on it, although More FM has strongly denied it and called for The Edge to apologize to Barnett and listeners. Barnett has released a statement, which in part read: "At the time my overriding emotion was one of genuine embarrassment. I’ve always wanted to meet this guy...maybe Tom will feel sorry for me and sit down for that glass of wine."

  • Listeners have expressed their anger with the prank, calling it cruel and unfunny. Fans have begun tweeting Tom Cruise and M:I-6 director Christopher McQuarrie to try and fix it, but unfortunately Paramount Studios has said "there is no opportunity for media" to talk to Cruise during his stay. Fans continue to try and make it right for Barnett.


I really hope this is all fake in an attempt to get an actual interview because that's really fucked up, they crushed the dude's dreams on the air.

Steve Harvey to Flint resident: 'enjoy your nice brown glass of water'

'Comedian' Steve Harvey made yet another unfunny, ignorant and insensitive comment, so it must be a day that ends in y. A Flint resident called into his radio show to express his support of the Warriors win, and Harvey seized the opportunity to prove yet again that he is a piece of shit: "You from Flint? That's why ya'll ain't even got clean water. He going to call in and say Cleveland doesn't deserve jack, when he over there bathing in silver water. When was the last time you touched water and it didn't have lead in it?". The caller stayed on the line but before he hung up, Harvey added "One more thing... enjoy your nice brown glass of water". Harvey has since defended his comments, and said it was simply "sports trash talk".

It's been 1,149 days since the city switched its water source to the Flint river, and poisoned its residents. It's been over 3 years, and Flint still does not have clean water! It will be at least 3 more years before pipes are replaced, many people still don't have filters and are surviving on a case of water bottles a day. Flint also wanted to charge its residents for overdue brown water bills, or cut off their supply completely and foreclose their homes.

ONTD Original: Selena Gomez - The original elusive chanteuse

These days Selena Gomez seems to be everywhere despite having no talents whatsover. After all, in the age of postmodernism and late capitalism anything is possible. And so, Selena Gomez became one of the biggest stars of her generation. After the ending of her successful Disney show The Wizards of Waverly Place, Selena decided to focus her energy on her passion: acting. To quote ONTD in 2011: ''[Selena] hopes that she will be able to give up her singing career one day to focus on her acting career.'' But since most of her post-Disney films flopped and Selena wasn't getting the type of roles she wanted, she could do one thing. Two things actually. Become an Instagram sensation and further her music career... without even singing her songs.

ONTD, how do you feel about the fact that someone who can't sing, can't act, can't dance, has no stage presence and seems to be pretty dumb has more money than you will ever earn in your lifetime?

Katy Perry's 'Witness' eyeing #1 spot, while she becomes the first to hit 100M Twitter followers

The latest album by Perry will become her third No. 1 following 2013's PRISM. Three singles have been released from 'Witness' with the latest track Swish Swish peaking at 46 on Billboard's Hot 100. Swish is a diss track aimed at fellow pop star Taylor Swift. Swift recently released her music on music streaming service Spotify last week, which was coincidental to Perry's album release. Swift pulled her music from Spotify in 2014 citing the flaws in the streaming service's model. Spotify never modified their methods and the artist payout but Swift put her music on the streaming service anyway, in hopes to block Perry's album performance which didn't work because Perry has the #1 album in the country.

Today, we #WITNESS history. Congratulations @katyperry, the first to reach 100 million followers! Singer Justin Bieber is not far behind with almost 97 million followers. Since I know you will want to make the comparison, singer Taylor Swift has just over 85 million followers.

Zoë Kravitz Criticizes the Way Casting Directors 'Compartmentalize' Black Actresses

"When my name is brought up in a casting office, I’m sure the fact that I’m Black comes up in discussions. I just read a script in which there were two couples, and one was written as Black. When I talked to the directors, they said I should play the wife of the Black guy. It’s insane that they still think the Black girl needs to be married to the Black guy, and everyone else is white. Their thinking is so compartmentalized.”


Emmy Rossum Says a Director Once Wanted to See If She Was Too 'Fat' for a Role

Rossum is opening up about an experience with sexual harassment that occurred only a year ago.

"My agent called me and was like, 'I'm so embarrassed to make this call, but there's a big movie and they're going to offer it to you. They really love your work on the show. But the director wants you to come into his office in a bikini. There's no audition. That's all you have to do.'"

"He wanted to know if I was fat now. That was basically the question. And I actually had this moment like, 'Well, how good is the part?' For a second, I was like, 'Would I do it? Send me the script. Maybe the character is in a bikini in the movie.'"

"Not naked in the movie,". "'We really love your work, but we just want to see how tight your ass is.' Are you fucking kidding me? Last time I checked, I'm not a fucking model."

Rossum wouldn't divulge the name of the director or the film she was auditioning for.


Dascha Polanco was pressured to hide her Afro-Latina features to score roles

“We have to be 'Fake Latinas'. And here’s the thing about ‘Fake Latinas', when you look at Latinas who are succeeding in Hollywood ... they’re super thin and you really can’t tell if she’s Latina or not."

"My Afro-Latina, you can see it in me."

"I was growing up and not thinking that I was good enough. ‘Oh my God, if only I had lighter eyes. If only I had lighter hair. If only I was skinny. Oh my God, if I was a size 0, I know I would get more work. I could play an Italian right now! This is why you’re not getting a job.’"

"For my features to not be accepted as something that can be represented in a film or in such a way that it’s ‘acceptable,’ it’s offensive."

"When I look at all these articles, these magazines, I don’t see Latinos. They’re Black or white. I don’t see a Latina in it. Or just one Latina."

A charity single to help the people affected by the Grenfell Tower fire to be released on Monday

The song they picked is Simon & Garfunkel's classic "Bridge over Troubled Water" and it it is supposed to be released on Monday. Artists confirmed so far are: Liam Payne, Lily Allen, The Who, Emile Sande, Louisa Johnson, Craig David, James Arthur, Skepta and Stormzy.

There might be more, since Simon stated: “Until that last note has been finished, we will not be off the phone. We started 24 hours ago and already we’re getting calls coming in, mainly from Brits. A lot of London artists, people like Skepta, Stormzy, Emile Sande, The London Community Gospel Choir, all wanted to be involved.”

On why he wanted to do it: “I drove up very near it, because you can’t get too close, but when you see it first hand it really does it hit you which is one of the reasons why I wanted to do this so quickly. You sit there, you’re looking at the that, and then go back and watch the news and you think, ‘what the f**k do you do?’ I thought this is the best thing because it’s quick and I’ve done it before. Normally when you do this thing it starts a wave. It was shocking. A, to see how close it was and B, looking at the other ones still standing and you think, ‘God it could be them next.’”

Other artists who might contribute (due to being signed to his label) are: Little Mix, Louis Tomlinson, Camila Cabello, Labrinth, James Arthur, Noah Cyrus.

TV Shows You Should Watch Based on Your Astrological Sign

Taurus (April 21­— May 21)

Taurus (April 21­— May 21)

''Taurus signs need order in their lives to feel secure, but are patient when they get to work at their own pace. Long-running shows are best for them, but they should also seek out shows that look beautiful, as well.''

Tv-shows Taurus should watch:

The Americans: A pair of deep-cover Soviet spies masquerades as a typical DC couple whose children, neighbors, coworkers & friends are completely unaware of their activities. At home, they're the stereotypical parents of stereotypical kids; at work, they pose as travel agents; but at night, they weave a web of confidants, lovers, dupes, and historical figures from the Reagan-era Cold War. The startlingly realistic plot twists force the viewer to consider the real cost of an undeclared war, what it takes to protect one's beliefs, if it's worth it, and if it actually worked for either side.

Law & Order: SVU: In the criminal justice system, sexually based offenses are considered especially heinous. In New York City, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Special Victims Unit. These are their stories.

Also: The Wonder Years, Doctor Who, American Crime Story & The Big Bang Theory!
