Ashley Ashley said: "Yeah, I'm just not feeling this right now. Got too much to read. Will come back to it later. Not sure when, but this isn't a DNF. "

"This book is so weird, you guys. It's like listening to a fairy tale while on acid. (Not that I've ever dropped acid.) Sometimes I hate it and sometimes I'm super impressed with it, and then talking spiders show up (or something). Gonna be an interesting review." Sep 19, 2014 12:40PM

Had heard this was Ms. Milan's weakest effort as an author, and now I see why. It was just sort of meh, mostly because it was never really clear why exactly it was sooooo important for Ned to maintain his control. I know they didn't have words back t...more

Oscar Wilde
“Those who find ugly meanings in beautiful things are corrupt without being charming. This is a fault. Those who find beautiful meanings in beautiful things are the cultivated. For these there is hope. They are the elect to whom beautiful things mean only Beauty. There is no such thing as a moral or an immoral book. Books are well written, or badly written. That is all.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

“I am so clever that sometimes I don't understand a single word of what I am saying.”
