Shaman by Kim Stanley Robinson
"So I found this book. And thought "Great! I love pre-history books!". I happily buyed it and started reading it.

The book itself was quite boring but ok. Rather meh in a lot of part but ok.

Until the protagonist ₡_₡ kills a doe.

And then he says he i..." Read more of this review »
Sheila rood and 927 other people liked Emily May's review of A Little Life:
A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara
"A Little Life is a strong contender for the award for the most depressing book I've ever read. I swear I'm not even exaggerating.

At this point, I'm not certain whether this is a positive or negative review. There's no doubt that this book is beaut..." Read more of this review »

"I won this as an ARC in a goodreads giveaway and I appreciate the opportunity to read it in advance of release. However, sad to say, it's very disappointing, and I loved "Eat, Pray, Love." This book is pretty bad. Two stars is generous.

George Eliot
“It is never too late to be what you might have been.”
George Eliot

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”
Rob Siltanen

Marcus Tullius Cicero
“A room without books is like a body without a soul.”
Marcus Tullius Cicero

Virginia Woolf
“I would venture to guess that Anon, who wrote so many poems without signing them, was often a woman.”
Virginia Woolf

Oscar Wilde
“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.”
Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere's Fan
