Stephanie and 4 other people liked Becky's review of The Silent Wife:
The Silent Wife by A.S.A. Harrison
"3.5 Stars

"She hasn't said a word but she has him on the run."

I love silence. There's a certain amount of power in it. I wish that I had the ability to say everything by saying nothing, but that is not one of my talents. I wish that my love of sil..." Read more of this review »

To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee
"In short: this book is unbelievable. The way a poignant story is told totally from a child's viewpoint is no mean achievement. The story has elements of pathos, horror, suspense and delight, but Scout recounts it all with the nonchalance of a chil..." Read more of this review »

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

Laini Taylor
“I love vengeance like normal people love sunsets and long walks on the beach. I eat vengeance with a spoon like it’s honey. In fact, I may not even be a real person, but just a vow of vengeance made flesh.”
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

Dan   Harris
“I do the last walking meditation session of the night in the upstairs area, above the meditation hall. I’m struggling to stay focused on lifting, moving, placing, with my mind wandering variously to thoughts of watching TV, eating cookies, and sleeping. At the end of one back-and-forth, I look up and see a statue of the Buddha. Silently, I send him the following message: Fuck you.”
Dan Harris, 10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works--A True Story
