The Earworm Inception by Jon Konrath
" Konrath's stories read a lot like my dreams -- sick, twisted, and probably suggestive of all sorts of undiagnosed psychiatric issues. The difference here is that, while I've rarely been able to capture the same kind of madness on paper, Konrath su... " Read more of this review »

Donna Tartt
“My hopes for a relationship with her were wholly unreal, whereas my ongoing misery, and frustration, were an all-too-horrible reality. Was groundless, hopeless romantic obsession any way to waste the rest of my life?”
Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch

Hunter S. Thompson
“Don't judge your taco by its price”
Hunter S. Thompson

Laini Taylor
“Wasn't that what religions did? Squint at one another and declare, 'My unprovable belief is better than your unprovable belief. Suck it.”
Laini Taylor, Dreams of Gods & Monsters

Donna Tartt
“—if a painting really works down in your heart and changes the way you see, and think, and feel, you don’t think, ‘oh, I love this picture because it’s universal.’ ‘I love this painting because it speaks to all mankind.’ That’s not the reason anyone loves a piece of art. It’s a secret whisper from an alleyway. Psst, you. Hey kid. Yes you.”
Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch

Donna Tartt
“Sometimes we want what we want even if we know it’s going to kill us.”
Donna Tartt, The Goldfinch
