"The writing is really dry. I'm not really enjoying reading it out loud to my kids. The plot is also slow. Not much humor and the writing is trying to be epic and it's not working :/" Jul 05, 2015 08:58PM

This exciting fantasy adventure stars a fascinating heroine who is a mix of sarcasm, humor, Cinderella, and deadly assassin. The romance was a love triangle, but I thought it was well written. Other than too many exclamation po

Susan Cain
“Because conflict-avoidant Emily would never “bite” or even hiss unless Greg had done something truly horrible, on some level she processes his bite to mean that she’s terribly guilty— of something, anything, who knows what? Emily’s guilt feels so intolerable that she tends to deny the validity of all of Greg’s claims— the legitimate ones along with those exaggerated by anger. This, of course, leads to a vicious cycle in which she shuts down her natural empathy and Greg feels unheard.”
Susan Cain, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking

Frances Hodgson Burnett
“Between the lines of every story there is another story, and that is one that is never heard and can only be guessed at by the people who are good at guessing.”
Frances Hodgson Burnett, A Little Princess

Eben Alexander
“For all the successes of Western civilization, the world paid a dear price in terms of the most crucial component of existence - the human spirit. The shadow side of high technology - modern warfare and thoughtless homicide and suicide, urban blight, ecological mayhem, cataclysmic climate change, polarization of economic resources - is bad enough. Much worse, our focus on exponential progress in science and technology has left many of us relatively bereft in the realm of meaning and joy, and of knowing how our lives fit into the grand scheme of existence for all eternity.”
Eben Alexander, Proof of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey into the Afterlife

Frances Hodgson Burnett
“Adversity tries people, and mine has tried you and proved how nice you are.”
Frances Hodgson Burnett, A Little Princess

Frances Hodgson Burnett
“The very fact that she never made an impudent answer seemed to Miss Minchin a kind of impudence in itself.”
Frances Hodgson Burnett, A Little Princess
