I normally write full reviews for audiobooks, but guys, it took me seven months to get through this. Not because the book's bad (it's not) and not because the narrator is terrible (he's quite good) but because I'm lazy and the only time I listen is w...more

Warprize by Elizabeth Vaughan

Guys, sometimes I get hung up on QUESTIONS. And these questions fester and grow and needle and suddenly I'm yelling, "Why did you wait 200 pages to ask what it means to be a WARPRIZE?" at Xylara aka Lara aka Warprize.

Seriously. 200 pages before she w...more

This is the second book I've read by Manda Collins, and the second time I've easily guessed who was behind the dastardly deeds. Which is no fun for me, really. But at least it provides outside forces to keep the couple in trouble.

Speaking of the coup...more

Tahereh Mafi
“My eyes are two professional pickpockets, stealing everything away in my mind. I lose track of the minutes we trample over.”
Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

Barry Lyga
“You won't even know you've crossed the line until it's way back in your rearview mirror.”
Barry Lyga, I Hunt Killers

Tahereh Mafi
“Killing time isn't as difficult as it sounds.

I can shoot a hundred numbers through the chest and watch them bleed decimal points in the palm of my hand. I can rip the numbers off a clock and watch the hour hand tick tick tick its final tock just before I fall asleep. I can suffocate seconds just by holding my breath. I've been murdering minutes for hours and no one seems to mind.”
Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

Stephanie Perkins
“Because that’s the thing about depression. When I feel it deeply, I don’t want to let it go. It becomes a comfort. I want to cloak myself under its heavy weight and breathe it into my lungs. I want to nurture it, grow it, cultivate it. It’s mine. I want to check out with it, drift asleep wrapped in its arms and not wake up for a long, long time.”
Stephanie Perkins, Lola and the Boy Next Door

Tahereh Mafi
“Hope in this world bleeds out of the barrel of a gun.”
Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me
