As a kid, if I hated a book, I would rewrite the ending or offending scene to my liking. (I am such a dork, I know.) Then I realized that I could write original books of my own. Mind = blown!

Toni Morison has a great quote that explains on this:

'If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.'(less)

TL is reading The Cupcake Witch: The possibilities were limitless, but the one thing that needed to be there was me. My heart felt it with more certainty that anything I’d felt since Mom had died. I needed that neglected place as much as it needed me. What we would do together, I wasn’t sure quite yet, but that was nothing a pumpkin spice latte couldn’t remedy. Still cradling the antique recipe box, I snatched up the key and headed toward the door.

“The villains were always ugly in books and movies. Necessarily so, it seemed. Because if they were attractive—if their looks matched their charm and their cunning—they wouldn't only be dangerous.

They would be irresistible.”
Nenia Campbell, Horrorscape

“Happiness is such a fragile thing, isn't it? So easily burst, like a bubble blown by a child, and always on the verge of being carried away.”
Nenia Campbell, Endgame

Garrison Keillor

“Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying 'End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH', the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.”
Terry Pratchett, Thief of Time

Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn

“Oh well... I'd just been thinking, if you had died, you'd have been welcome to share my toilet.”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

“It starts so young, and I'm angry about that. The garbage we're taught. About love, about what's "romantic." Look at so many of the so-called romantic figures in books and movies. Do we ever stop and think how many of them would cause serious and drastic unhappiness after The End? Why are sick and dangerous personality types so often shown a passionate and tragic and something to be longed for when those are the very ones you should run for your life from? Think about it. Heathcliff. Romeo. Don Juan. Jay Gatsby. Rochester. Mr. Darcy. From the rigid control freak in The Sound of Music to all the bad boys some woman goes running to the airport to catch in the last minute of every romantic comedy. She should let him leave. Your time is so valuable, and look at these guys--depressive and moody and violent and immature and self-centered. And what about the big daddy of them all, Prince Charming? What was his secret life? We dont know anything about him, other then he looks good and comes to the rescue.”
Deb Caletti, The Secret Life of Prince Charming

Oh dear! I only just saw this - I didn't know you could comment on profiles.

What can I say? Your reviews always struck me as particularly polite and classy, and since we seem to see eye-to-eye on a lot of books (at least, judging from what's been popping up in my feeds), it'll be cool to see your input on what's hot and what's not.

By-the-bye - I just finished reading The Shadow of the Wind. When I reviewed it, that stalker feed thingy below the book mentioned you had it marked as to-read. It's amaziiiiiiing.

That is all. :)

Gahhh! So sweet. I'm blushing. o^___^o

As a fellow stalker, that means a lot. I really like your reviews, too!


The Holy Terror Ha, thanks. I'm not always that hilarious though, unfortunately. You've been forewarned!

message 9: by Kruti

Kruti Pikachu thanks for the add :). Can't wait to discuss books with you. Also, what should I call you? If people find out I'm talking to a Pokemon...well the mental hospital is most likely going to get a new patient lol.

message 10: by Kruti

Kruti Haha, don't worry I'll keep you company :). Who knows we might even find some Pokemons lurking there. Also, book-creeping is totally in right now :D. I noticed you've read Wither and Matched - how did you find them? I've still got to read them.

I feel I'll probably use your book list to explore new genres for myself too and I love your reviews -(I should probably stop being a kissass now). Oh and yes, I'm also addicted to the walking dead - it's amazing. I can't wait for Walktober. ;)

message 32: by Janvi

Janvi Yay ! You could be my Bella . And I could be your Edward ! And I could watch you sleep . And leave you , And come back when a sexy dog tries to become your new boyfrien . Then I could impregenate you with a demon baby ! Then turn you into a bloodsucking mosquito thus riping you away from your friends and family ! If that doesn't smell like happily ever after (forever) then what does ?

message 47: by Dija

Dija Hey, Pikachu! Thanks for accepting! :) Legend's amazing and one of my favorite dystopians out there. From what I've heard, it only gets better with the next book, so that's definitely a change from the other dystopians that've been so disappointing with their sequels (*coughInsurgentcough*).

When do you plan on starting it?

message 48: by Dija (last edited Sep 22, 2012 10:54AM)

Dija I'll be stalking your profile then, to see when you finally start it. ;) I REALLY hope you love it! And then you can join the rest of us in the agonizing wait for the sequel. XD

It wasn't really bad, just really disappointing. I still have hopes for the ending though.

What's the most recent book you've rated 5 stars?
