It surprised me because in the beginning it was hard to get into. But in the end I was flying through the pages too fast. This book jumps not only between Arden, Rory, and Natalie..but also between past and present. It is suspenseful with a few twist ...more

Jennifer McMahon
“The world was full of dangers now that she was pregnant: mercury in tuna, hot tubs, beer, secondhand smoke, over-the-counter medicine. Not to mention crazy baby-abducting fairy kings.”
Jennifer McMahon, Don't Breathe a Word

Téa Obreht
“When your fight has purpose—to free you from something, to interfere on the behalf of an innocent—it has a hope of finality. When the fight is about unraveling—when it is about your name, the places to which your blood is anchored, the attachment of your name to some landmark or event—there is nothing but hate, and the long, slow progression of people who feed on it and are fed it, meticulously, by the ones who come before them. Then the fight is endless, and comes in waves and waves, but always retains its capacity to surprise those who hope against it.”
Téa Obreht, The Tiger's Wife

Leo Tolstoy
“But I'm glad you'll see me as I am. Above all, I wouldn't want people to think that I want to prove anything. I don't want to prove anything, I just want to live; to cause no evil to anyone but myself. I have that right, haven't I?”
Leo Tolstoy, Anna Karenina

R.J. Palacio
“MR. BROWNE'S SEPTEMBER PRECEPT:

WHEN GIVEN THE CHOICE BETWEEN BEING
RIGHT OR BEING KIND, CHOOSE KIND.”
R.J. Palacio, Wonder

Mark Twain
“What would men be without women? Scarce, sir...mighty scarce.”
Mark Twain
