All of my GR friends seem to have enjoyed this one, but I'm bored. I don't know why I'm so disparate on fantasy lately. Neither the writing, the plot, the characters or the world managed to capture me. Honestly, for all the info dumpi...more

Review to come!

Also Known As Harper by Ann Haywood Leal
" When I was in middle school, my mom invented a phrase for schmaltz: Hokey Wombat Shit.

I hate to do it, since I'd been really looking forward to Belzhar, but I am really not feeling this one. I enjoyed the one Wolitzer adult novel I've read, but this one isn't capturing me. 88 pages in, I'm caring less and less about the...more
I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson
" Just as distinctive as I had expected from the author who wrote The Sky Is Everywhere. I have a lot of feelings -- one of them extreme tiredness because I was up late crying with/for these fantastic characters. "
"I think you would like this one. If you liked her first book, then for sure. "

“I was not ladylike, nor was I manly. I was something else altogether. There were so many different ways to be beautiful.”

Stephen Chbosky
“I think that if I ever have kids, and they are upset, I won't tell them that people are starving in China or anything like that because it wouldn't change the fact that they were upset. And even if somebody else has it much worse, that doesn't really change the fact that you have what you have.”
