More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera
"“The boy with no direction taught me something unforgettable: happiness comes again if you let it.”

I've waited so so long(well, since this was released I guess) to read this. This was one of my most anticipated books of 2015 and it did not let me..." Read more of this review »

More Happy Than Not by Adam Silvera
"If the general love story plot has become predictable, I think LGBT+ love story plots can be stereotypically predictable precisely because they are rarer. But get ready to throw out all your expectations rightfully for this book!!!

It's not just a..." Read more of this review »

My favorite work of Hemingway's so far. "Soldier's Home" details the short story of Harold Krebs, a soldier who returns from World War I to a town that could not care less about him. Hemingway does a great job showing the cruelty and lack of caring K ...more

The Sun Also Rises

Such a boring book. I get that Hemingway captures the decadence and dissolution of the Lost Generation. I get that his writing style brings to mind adjectives like "sparse" and "blunt" and "elegiac." But I do not get how to find enjoyment from such a ...more

“Don't forget who your heroes are, what they mean to you, and why they mean that to you.”
Gale Harold

Jojo Moyes
“Hey Clark', he said.'Tell me something good'. I stared out of the window at the bright-blue Swiss sky and I told him a story of two people. Two people who shouldn't have met, and who didn't like each other much when they did, but who found they were the only two people in the world who could possibly have understood each other. And I told him of the adventures they had, the places they had gone, and the things I had seen that I had never expected to. I conjured for him electric skies and iridescent seas and evenings full of laughter and silly jokes. I drew a world for him, a world far from a Swiss industrial estate, a world in which he was still somehow the person he had wanted to be. I drew the world he had created for me, full of wonder and possibility.”
Jojo Moyes, Me Before You

Hanya Yanagihara
“Why wasn’t friendship as good as a relationship? Why wasn’t it even better? It was two people who remained together, day after day, bound not by sex or physical attraction or money or children or property, but only by the shared agreement to keep going, the mutual dedication to a union that could never be codified.”
Hanya Yanagihara, A Little Life

James     Baldwin
“If the concept of God has any validity or any use, it can only be to make us larger, freer, and more loving. If God cannot do this, then it is time we got rid of Him.”
James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time

“The capacity to be alone is the capacity to love. It may look paradoxical to you, but it's not. It is an existential truth: only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of another person--without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the other, without reducing the other to a thing, and without becoming addicted to the other. They allow the other absolute freedom, because they know that if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now. Their happiness cannot be taken by the other, because it is not given by the other.”
