The whole x-Men meets Ocean’s Eleven thing totally caught my attention. Such comparison marketing is often a lie, though, and the cover didn’t especially make me fall in love. Then Da

Forever Princess by Meg Cabot
“High school sucks. People who say those were the best years of your life—those people are liars... Who wants the best years of their life to be in high school? High school is something everybody should be ready to lose.”
Meg Cabot
Forever Princess by Meg Cabot
“But as you age, you lose other, even more important things, like friends-hopefully only bad friends, who maybe weren't as good for you as you once thought. With luck, you'll be able to hang on to your true friends, the ones who were always there for you....even when you thought they weren't.

Because friends like that are more precious then all the tiaras in the world”
Meg Cabot
Lion Heart by A.C. Gaughen
"I’ve been quite the black sheep when it comes to the series as a whole so I might as well go out with a bang. I did not like this one. At all. There wasn’t anything seriously wrong with it, however, it was extremely uneventful and didn’t go out wi..." Read more of this review »

Obviously, I picked up Pip Bartlett’s Guide to Magical Creatures for one reason: Maggie Stiefvater. I’ve become a big Maggie fan since I read Sinner and The Raven Boys, and I’m

Mosquitoland is a book I was deeply unsure about, because I just wasn’t sure if it would be a Christina book. I was lured in by the adorable cover, and the reviews which talked

Some of you may know that I wasn’t a fan of Raeder’s debut novel Unteachable, unlike everyone else I know who read it. While I liked the writing, I couldn’t get past the teacher

Sarra Manning
“He didn't say anything and I thought I'd shocked him, because I tend to do that. Not just with Michael but with pretty much anyone who can't deal with being honest and admitting that you have wants and needs and desires and all those other fun things.”
Sarra Manning, Adorkable

Terry Pratchett
“they believed that for a thing to exist it had to have a position in time and space. Humanity had arrived as a nasty shock. Humanity practically was things that didn’t have a position in time and space, such as imagination, pity, hope, history, and belief. Take those away and all you had was an ape that fell out of trees a lot.”
Terry Pratchett, Thief of Time

Trisha Leigh
“You can love people, and you can befriend them, but the only person you can ever one hundred percent depend on is yourself.”
Trisha Leigh, Winter Omens

Josin L. McQuein
“I know one thing about the place I came from,' I say. 'We didn't eat dessert.'

'Then you came from a horrible and backward place and must stay here out of self-preservation.”
Josin L. McQuein, Arclight

Rachel Bach
“Otherwise, it would have been much easier to just shoot you and be done with it.” I disagreed. The fact that I was still alive after so many combat tours was a testament to exactly how hard it is to “just shoot me and be done with it.”
Rachel Bach, Honor's Knight
