I'm With Fatty by Edward Ugel
Rate this book
Clear rating
This has to be the funniest thing I've ever read! I was laughing out loud like a crazy person the entire time I was reading it. Not only would I read more of Ugel's books, but I'm trying to devise a plan to become his best friend in real life so I ca...more
Surfing the Middle East by Jesse Aizenstat
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book combines Jesse Aizenstat's surfer dude mentality with the heavy topic of middle east politics in a way that didn't quite work for me. While the concept of the book is interesting, there's a big disconnect in the tone. I also would have like...more

I'm sorry to say I did not love this book. I thought reading the memoir of such a creative and talented fiction author would be at least somewhat entertaining. Instead I got a blow by blow recap of every wrestling match John Irving has ever been in.....more

Huck by Janet Elder

Ok, I'll admit it...I totally bought this book because of the cute puppy on the cover. Huck's scruffy little face and the words "remarkable true story" had me falling hook, line and sinker. But the front cover is probably the best part of this book,...more

Kristan Higgins
“I'll tell you something, Harpy," he said, his voice almost a whisper now. "It never even occurred to me that we wouldn't make it. And it never occurred to you that we would. You were just waiting for us to go down in flames. I thought we could get through anything.”
Kristan Higgins, My One and Only

Kathryn Stockett
“Stuart needs "space" and "time," as if this were physics and not a human relationship.”
Kathryn Stockett, The Help

Candace Bushnell
“Just because something doesn't last forever, it doesn't mean it wasn't meaningful while it did last. It doesn't mean it wasn't important.”
Candace Bushnell, Summer and the City

Mark Twain
“Life is short, Break the Rules.
Forgive quickly, Kiss SLOWLY.
Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably
And never regret ANYTHING
That makes you smile.”
Mark Twain

Curtis Sittenfeld
“But maybe this is what Hannah has always wanted: a man who will deny her. A man of her own who isn't hers. Isn't it the real reason she broke up with Mike--not because he moved to North Carolina for law school (he wanted her to go with him, and she said no) but because he adored her? If she asked him to get out of bed and bring her a glass of water, he did. If she was in a bad mood, he tried to soothe her. It didn't bother him if she cried, or if she didn't wash her hair or shave her legs or have anything interesting to say. He forgave it all, he always thought she was beautiful, he always wanted to be around her. It became so boring! She'd been raised, after all, not to be accommodated but to accommodate, and if she was his world, then his world was small, he was easily satisfied. After a while, when he parted her lips with his tongue, she'd think, Thrash, thrash, here we go. She wanted to feel like she was striving cleanly forward, walking into a bracing wind and learning from her mistakes, and she felt instead like she was sitting in a deep, squishy sofa, eating Cheetos, in an overheated room. With Oliver, there is always contrast to shape their days, tension to keep them on their toes: You are far form me, you are close to me. We are fighting, we are getting along.”
Curtis Sittenfeld, The Man of My Dreams
