I'm extremely picky when it comes to Middle Grade books. Due to this, I tend to avoid them most of the time because when I do read them, I'm notoriously hard on them and my rating tends to reflect that. It's unfair, but it is what it is. However, I'v ...more

This is the first book I've read on Joan of Arc. While I've always been interested in reading about her, I was kind of intimidated because there are so many books about her. I wanted to read a definitive biography...one that would allow me to get the ...more

So, I am a Christmas freak! I love everything about Christmas...except the Christmas stories. Despite my infatuation with ALL of the Christmas movies, I was just never into the saccharine reads that the books always end up being. I'm also not that in ...more

John Green
“Saying 'I notice you're a nerd' is like saying, 'Hey, I notice that you'd rather be intelligent than be stupid, that you'd rather be thoughtful than be vapid, that you believe that there are things that matter more than the arrest record of Lindsay Lohan. Why is that?' In fact, it seems to me that most contemporary insults are pretty lame. Even 'lame' is kind of lame. Saying 'You're lame' is like saying 'You walk with a limp.' Yeah, whatever, so does 50 Cent, and he's done all right for himself.”
John Green

“..."Fun?" you ask. "Weren't feminists these grim-faced, humorless, antifamily, karate-chopping ninjas who were bitter because they couldn't get a man?" Well, in fact the problem was that all too many of them HAD gotten a man, married him, had his kids, and then discovered that, as mothers, they were never supposed to have their own money, their own identity, their own aspirations, time to pee, or a brain. And yes, some women indeed became bad-tempered as a result. After all, no anger, no social change.”
Susan J. Douglas

Jeanne d'Arc
“One life is all we have and we live it as we believe in living it. But to sacrifice what you are and to live without belief, that is a fate more terrible than dying.”
Jeanne d'Arc

“Feminism is the radical notion that women are people."

[Reviewing A Feminist Dictionary by Cheris Kramarae and Paula A Treichler in New Directions for Women (1986)]”
Marie Shear

J.K. Rowling
“Harry!" said Fred, elbowing Percy out of the way and bowing deeply. "Simply splendid to see you, old boy-"
"Marvelous," said George, pushing Fred aside and seizing Harry's hand in turn. "Absolutely spiffing."
Percy scowled.
"That's enough, now," said Mrs. Weasley.
"Mum!" said Fred as though he'd only just spotted her and seizing her hand too. "How really corking to see you-”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
