You Suck by Christopher Moore
Rate this book
Clear rating
I enjoyed this book but it's not nearly as good as the first book in the trilogy, Bloodsucking Fiends. Somehow the writing falls short. I also despise intros to books that are a part of a sequence that attempt to recap the previous books in the story ...more

Bloodsucking Fiends by Christopher Moore
Rate this book
Clear rating
Hilarious, adorable, and surprisingly even better the second time around. I'm a big Christopher Moore fan, and this one is no different. Far from your typical vampire story, this tale is an easy read that is nearly impossible to put down.

Flowers in the Attic by V.C. Andrews
Rate this book
Clear rating
The first time I read Flowers in the Attic was in 7th grade, which today I find shocking. Reading it again I shake my head in wonder at the fact that V.C. Andrews target audience really was young adult, even though the subject matter was far over my ...more

Autobiography of a Face by Lucy Grealy
Rate this book
Clear rating
Powerful, moving, and deeply sad, my second reading of Lucy Grealy's autobiography touched me even more than the first time I read it, probably because I know what the outcome of her life is now.
If you are ever feeling vain, sorry for yourself, or t

All the stories in this collection are lovely, Breakfast at Tiffany's being only one of them. I watched the movie (again) soon after finishing the story, and with the exception of a few changes (an additional character and the ending) I was pleased t ...more

The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
The Handmaid's Tale
by Margaret Atwood (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
Creepy, unsettling, and altogether too timely is how I would describe this novel. No matter when it is read, Margaret Atwood manages to capture a question that lurks within us: what if?

I read this novel mostly in preparation for the Hulu miniseries

Charlotte Brontë
“I could not unlove him now, merely because I found that he had ceased to notice me.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Charlotte Brontë
“Life appears to me too short to be spent in nursing animosity or registering wrongs.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

Peter Jenkins
“After living in Smokey Hollow these three months my bearded face was darkened to a tan, and for more than a moment, I couldn't tell what color I was. Black is what I saw and what I expected to see. I grabbed a towel and rubbed to get a clear look. No, I was white. At least my skin was. I had been through so much with my family here, and all I had seen was black faces, that I forgot for a split second that I wasn't black too. For weeks after the flood in the bathroom, I remembered the morning I forgot my skin color.”
Peter Jenkins, A Walk Across America

Charlotte Brontë
“I had not intended to love him; the reader knows I had wrought hard to extirpate from my soul the germs of love there detected; and now, at the first renewed view of him, they spontaneously revived, great and strong! He made me love him without looking at me.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre
