" Mini Book Review: As usual when I love a book I struggle with reviewing it. My jumbled way of writing (not to mention my way of speaking) cannot due justice to the brilliance of this story. Flavia is a delightfully wicked little imp. She is charm..." Read more of this review »

This was such a fun book. I utterly enjoyed it, is a YA fluffy romance that I wouldn't want *my* YA to read (language & morals) Great character development, realistic dialogue.
Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins
"A Haiku

Boarding school story
Girl meets short boy with girlfriend
Cue teenage drama

Also it is in France, some of the parents are douchebags, and it is as enjoyable as cookies and milk.

Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins

Wealthy white teenagers having first-world problems.

Anna, the valiant, is plucked from Georgia and “abandoned” by her parents at a boarding school for rich American teens living in Paris, where she collap..." Read more of this review »

Pat Conroy
“But no one walks out of his family without reprisals: a family is too disciplined an army to offer compassion to its deserters.”
Pat Conroy, Beach Music

Malcolm Gladwell
“Insight is not a lightbulb that goes off inside our heads. It is a flickering candle that can easily be snuffed out.”
Malcolm Gladwell, Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking

Thrity Umrigar
“ Perhaps the body has its own memory system, like the invisible meridian lines those Chinese acupuncturists always talk about. Perhaps the body is unforgiving, perhaps every cell, every muscle and fragment of bone remembers each and every assault and attack. Maybe the pain of memory is encoded into our bone marrow and each remembered grievance swims in our bloodstream like a hard, black pebble. After all, the body, like God, moves in mysterious ways.

From the time she was in her teens, Sera has been fascinated by this paradox - how a body that we occupy, that we have worn like a coat from the moment of our birth - from before birth, even - is still a stranger to us. After all, almost everything we do in our lives is for the well-being of the body: we bathe daily, polish our teeth, groom our hair and fingernails; we work miserable jobs in order to feed and clothe it; we go to great lengths to protect it from pain and violence and harm. And yet the body remains a mystery, a book that we have never read. Sera plays with this irony, toys with it as if it were a puzzle: How, despite our lifelong preoccupation with our bodies, we have never met face-to-face with our kidneys, how we wouldn't recognize our own liver in a row of livers, how we have never seen our own heart or brain. We know more about the depths of the ocean, are more acquainted with the far corners of outer space than with our own organs and muscles and bones. So perhaps there are no phantom pains after all; perhaps all pain is real; perhaps each long ago blow lives on into eternity in some different permutation and shape; perhaps the body is this hypersensitive, revengeful entity, a ledger book, a warehouse of remembered slights and cruelties.

But if this is true, surely the body also remembers each kindness, each kiss, each act of compassion? Surely this is our salvation, our only hope - that joy and love are also woven into the fabric of the body, into each sinewy muscle, into the core of each pulsating cell?”
Thrity Umrigar, The Space Between Us

Pat Conroy
“Men are prisoners of their genitalia and women are the keepers of the keys to paradise.”
Pat Conroy, Beach Music

Janet Fitch
“I don't let anyone touch me," I finally said.
Why not?"
Why not? Because I was tired of men. Hanging in doorways, standing too close, their smell of beer or fifteen-year-old whiskey. Men who didn't come to the emergency room with you, men who left on Christmas Eve. Men who slammed the security gates, who made you love them then changed their minds. Forests of boys, their ragged shrubs full of eyes following you, grabbing your breasts, waving their money, eyes already knocking you down, taking what they felt was theirs. (...) It was a play and I knew how it ended, I didn't want to audition for any of the roles. It was no game, no casual thrill. It was three-bullet Russian roulette.”
Janet Fitch, White Oleander
