I'm keeping this book on my desk. And when I doubt myself, I will look at it and read an excerpt and feel less like an impostor and more like myself.

More like the person who can.

Confusingly fast-paced, strange world-building, with characters (including instalove that didn't mesh for the characters or me as a reader) that read as not fully developed.

Interesting premise, but the execution, for me, wasn't there.

The first volume of Snowpiercer a quick read (I read it on the train home, though I'm a fast reader), and although I liked it, the story is rather fast-paced and can be confusing in parts. The book tries to clarify this by using arrows to show who is...more

When you don't think you have anything to read in your bag, but then find a volume of Saga hiding—you read it.

I still think Alana and Marko are two of the most gorgeous characters.

Veronica Roth
“Why do people want to pretend that death is sleep? It isn't. It isn't.”
Veronica Roth, Divergent

Neil Gaiman
“It is astonishing just how much of what we are can be tied to the beds we wake up in in the morning, and it is astonishing how fragile that can be.”
Neil Gaiman, Coraline

Maggie Stiefvater
“As the hours crept by, the afternoon sunlight bleached all the books on the shelves to pale, gilded versions of themselves and warmed the paper and ink inside the covers so that the smell of unread words hung in the air.”
Maggie Stiefvater, Shiver

George R.R. Martin
“Your brother Robb has been crowned King in the North. You and Aemon have that in common. A king for a brother.” said Mormont.

“And this too,” said Jon. “A vow.”

The Old Bear gave a loud snort, and the raven took flight, flapping in a circle about the room. “Give me a man for every vow I’ve seen broken and the Wall will never lack for defenders.”

“I’ve always known that Rob will be Lord of Winterfell.”

Mormont gave a whistle, and the bird flew to him again and settled on his arm. “A lord’s one thing, a king’s another. They will garb your brother Robb in silks, satins, and velvets of a hundred different colors, while you live and die in black ringmail. He will wed some beautiful princess and father sons on her. You’ll have no wife, nor will you ever hold a child of your own blood in your arms. Robb will rule, you will serve. Men will call you a crow. Him they’ll call `Your Grace’. Singers will praise every little thing he does, while your greatest deeds all go unsung. Tell me that none of this troubles you, Jon… and I’ll name you a liar, and know I have the truth of it.”

Jon drew himself up, taut as a bowstring “And if it did trouble me, what might I do, bastard as I am?”

“What will you do?” Mormont asked. “Bastard as you are.”

“Be troubled,” said Jon, “and keep my vows.”
George R.R. Martin, A Clash of Kings

“Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.”
