Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Rate this book

Mockingjay is great. It really is. It's all the things I've come to expect from The Hunger Games series--interesting plot, strong female protagonist, likable characters, depressing storyline, the works. However, I found this final effort a little les ...more

Beastly by Alex Flinn
Rate this book
Clear rating
I love me a good Beauty and the Beast adaptation. But sadly, Beastly is not very good at all. It's competent, I guess (meaning most of the sentences have both subjects and predicates and the author does not seem to be smoking any hallucinogenic subst ...more

This might not be the fairest of reviews since I'm not certain I was in quite the right mind frame for reading this book, but here goes. The story picks up where The Bronze Horseman left off. Tatiana has made her way to America and had her baby while ...more

The Bronze Horseman by Paullina Simons
Rate this book
Clear rating
This isn't a perfect book by any means, but I liked it, and in the world where I rule supreme that's what counts. The Bronze Horseman is an epic love story set against the backdrop of WWII in the USSR. It's fiction, I know, but I appreciated that the ...more

The Sweet Gum Tree by Katherine Allred

Terry Pratchett
“Seeing, contrary to popular wisdom, isn't believing. It's where belief stops, because it isn't needed any more.”
Terry Pratchett

Terry Pratchett
“Do you know what it feels like to be aware of every star, every blade of grass? Yes. You do. You call it 'opening your eyes again.' But you do it for a moment. We have done it for eternity. No sleep, no rest, just endless... endless experience, endless awareness. Of everything. All the time. How we envy you, envy you! Lucky humans, who can close your minds to the endless deeps of space! You have this thing you call... boredom? That is the rarest talent in the universe! We heard a song — it went 'Twinkle twinkle little star....' What power! What wondrous power! You can take a billion trillion tons of flaming matter, a furnace of unimaginable strength, and turn it into a little song for children! You build little worlds, little stories, little shells around your minds, and that keeps infinity at bay and allows you to wake up in the morning without screaming!”
Terry Pratchett, A Hat Full of Sky

Sarah Dessen
“So you're always honest," I said.
"Aren't you?"
"No," I told him. "I'm not."
"Well, that's good to know, I guess."
"I'm not saying I'm a liar," I told him. He raised his eyebrows. "That's not how I meant it, anyways."
"How'd you mean it, then?"
"I just...I don't always say what I feel."
"Why not?"
"Because the truth sometimes hurts," I said.
"Yeah," he said. "So do lies, though.”
Sarah Dessen, Just Listen

Terry Pratchett
“Many people could say things in a cutting way, Nanny knew. But Granny Weatherwax could listen in a cutting way. She could make something sound stupid just by hearing it.”
Terry Pratchett

Eoin Colfer
“I never tell anyone exactly how clever I am. They would be too scared.”
