Never Have I Ever by Katie Heaney
"This vapid, immature and almost abusively boring book quite flawlessly illustrates why, unless you are Malala Yousafzai, you should never write a memoir when you are twenty-five.

Just don't fucking do it."

Meh. That's all I felt when I was done with this... just, meh. The writing was surprisingly good -- that is, free from excess adverbs, awkward phrasing, jolting syntax. The characters were often two-dimensional though, and none of their motivations f ...more
Salt & Storm by Kendall Kulper
"*2.5 stars*

Sea witches.

Excellent. Out of the box, funny, painful, absorbing, honest and readable. I love that Donald Miller is up front about his own narcissistic tendencies, which are really common to us all (the radio station in his head is K-DON. Playing "all Don, all t ...more

And Grisham continues his downhill slide, unarrested.

Oh for the days of his earlier books, when the plots were intricately woven and I couldn't put the books down! You know what I thought when I read this book (and King of Torts, and The Broker)? I t

It's been a long time since I've read a book that enthralled me so much that I sat on the couch in my pajamas all day without budging, my nose planted in the pages. I will say that I saw the movie first, and I did think the movie better showed the ch ...more

You know how some books inspire you -- to live with courage and humor, to stand up to the bad guys, to love the people around you, to make the world a better place? Yeah, this book was not remotely like that. This book was just depressing.

Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn
"You know those books that are a complete chore to read? The ones you'll do anything -- playing Words with Friends, cleaning the house, scrubbing toilets -- to avoid reading? Then a few weeks go by and you've gotten dumber, because in doing your da..." Read more of this review »

Ram Dass

“The world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.”
Benjamin Disraeli

“I want to see you.

Know your voice.

Recognize you when you
first come 'round the corner.

Sense your scent when I come
into a room you've just left.

Know the lift of your heel,
the glide of your foot.

Become familiar with the way
you purse your lips
then let them part,
just the slightest bit,
when I lean in to your space
and kiss you.

I want to know the joy
of how you whisper

“Moonlight floods the whole sky from horizon to horizon;
How much it can fill your room depends on its windows.”
Rumi, The Essential Rumi

“Forget safety.
Live where you fear to live.
Destroy your reputation.
Be notorious.”
