Five Ways to Fall by K.A. Tucker
Rate this book
Clear rating
I didn't realize this was part of a set and the story of side characters from the first book until I'd finished it. So that's great for fans of book 1...which I haven't got around to reading yet.

In a nutshell: it's chick lit/romance/contemporary and...more

Not my very favorite Discworld, but it had a few laugh out loud funny moments and it was good to get some backstory on Rincewind.

Gluten-Free Girl by Shauna James Ahern

This seems like a great book for those recently diagnosed with Celiac's or gluten intolerance and feeling down about their food options. It's about 80% food porn, 15% memoir, and 5% cookbook. It's fairly sure to remind those who can't eat bread of al...more

I half expected another Chelsea Handler style book, and instead was pleasantly surprised to find this intelligent, funny and insightful.

Sure there are a few TMI moments, but much less than I'd expected. She's likable and has some good reflection on...more

The Savage Damsel and the Dwarf by Gerald Morris
Rate this book
Clear rating
Funny, adventurous, and by no means are the women in the books unassertive fainting damsels in distress. I enjoyed the story and the take on Arthurian legends - particularly the end notes comparing the original story to the retelling.

Ray Bradbury
“And finally, have you trained well enough so you can say what you want to say without getting hamstrung? Have you written enough so that you are relaxed and can allow the truth to get out without being ruined by self-conscious posturings or changed by a desire to become rich?”
Ray Bradbury, Zen in the Art of Writing

Kelly Williams Brown
“Step 6: Stop enjoying things ironically. Just enjoy them

Know what? I love Britney Spears and Forever 21. And I could pretend like it’s this whole meta thing where I’m not actually enjoying it but rather just making this esoteric statement on lowbrow culture, but (insert handjob motion here).
The truth is that I love trashy dance pop and the garments that are its clothing equivalent. You don’t need to make your tastes a self-conscious statement about who you are. Just unapologetically like the things you like.”
Kelly Williams Brown, Adulting: How to Become a Grown-up in 468 Easy(ish) Steps

Melanie Neale
“Part of it was a feminist streak and the other part of it was the ultimate in antifeminism: a deeply rooted need in me to be accepted by my dad and by other men. If I could do the same things as them, I would be accepted into their world.”
Melanie Neale, Boat Girl: A Memoir of Youth, Love & Fiberglass

“...I think a lot of my misery was me hating me, and hating me made me hate everyone else. I felt like such a punk, I felt so weak. I really was a coward. I never stood up for myself. I mean, I stood up for myself as we associate standing up for yourself -- fighting and violence. But that's not standing up for yourself. I mean standing up for myself like thinking for myself. Now, I feel more ok with myself. I'm feeling stronger in my abilities every day, and the world just opens up. You really can do anything, you can shape your life any way you want it to be. Because prison isn't the great prison. Prison is being entrapped by those self-destructive ways of thinking.”
Laura Bates, Shakespeare Saved My Life: Ten Years in Solitary with the Bard

Kelly Williams Brown
“Your parents, presumably, love you very much and think you are perhaps the most adorable, talented thing ever to prance upon this earth. Your friends agree with them, as do your favorite teachers, as does your significant other. When there is a You Parade, these people will be the flag bearers, the drum majors and majorettes, so make sure you are always flag bearing and drum majoring for them, too. These people who think so highly of us are very special and precious, and we must treasure them. Because here is the truth: Most of the world doesn’t give a flying fuck about you.”
