      @selah-chelyah 😀 Well, those were the things that stood out to me that I remembered. 🙂

      Hm, okay, lol! I will read it again and see, but I am sure there was not swear words in there, or I would not have liked it either! 🙂

      @selah-chelyah @anne-of-lothlorien I saw your little conversation and I was just going to add that I’ve really wanted to read that book but have decided to wait because of the amount of language I’ve been told is in it. Some day though. (:

      AHA! I believe I have solved the mystery… I researched it a little and discovered that the original version DOES have language in it, though the edition I read had them all taken out. No wonder this did not make any sense. 😀 Well, in that case, I can tell you what version I read if you DO want to read a non-language-filled version. I thought it was pretty amazing and thought-provoking, but am glad to know that I can’t recommend just any version. 🙂

      @selah-chelyah Woah, interesting. Do you have a link to the book that doesn’t have language?

      Aghhhh, yes. I haven’t read the Giver in a while, but I remembered that I absolutely fell in love with it. Amazing story and just, argh. Yes. Everyone. Go read it now!

      As for the Wingfeather Saga, anyone who knows me knows that I get pretty much fanatical over those books because they’re so good. I am currently withholding my passion for it because I’ve probably freaked people out with how much I absolutely love that story. 😂😂😂

      Never read Faerenheit 451. If it’s no worse than the Maze Runner (creepiest and most unsettling book I’ve ever read, ever), then I think I’ll be fine. 😂😂

      @the-fledgling-artist Would you want me to mail the second, third and fourth books to you? I would want them back, but I’m not reading them at the moment because I actually don’t have the first one. Weirdly enough. 😂😂 (My uncle lent me the first one and I couldn’t get enough, so I bought the rest 😉)

      Here is the version I have, without any of the language in it: 🙂

      It looks like it is pretty hard to find this particular version…couldn’t find any on Amazon or several other places. Interesting!

      @h-jones AWW, you’re such a little peach. That’s so nice of you to offer.

      … I JUST GOT HOLD OF THE SECOND BOOK THO!! *confetti* 

      I’m so excited to read it. I’m kind of waiting till I have a huge chunk of time tho, ’cause I like to read books in as big chunks/few sittings as possible. (Does anyone else do that?) If possible I like to get through a book that size in a couple days. Maybe this weekend I can read it. 😀

      About Fahrenheit 451 – I loved the book’s premise and story and characters! 🙂 It’s also a very quick read. So it’s a recommend, but some content issues (although they didn’t really bother me too much – PG-13). Perhaps the PluggedIn review on it would help? https://www.pluggedin.com/book-reviews/fahrenheit-451
