The Fold by Peter Clines

The first 260 pages of this book are easily 4.5/5 stars. The last 100...are not. Maybe 3.5 stars in the end?

Must ponder further and fight the disappointment that is all the more crushing because the first 2/3 of this book was so brilliant.

3.5 stars This thriller has a pretty great reveal--and while I think it was telegraphed fairly early, the premise holds up under scrutiny and the twist won't be spoiled for you even if you guess it.

I do wish, however, that the entire book had been w

If this book were a movie, we'd all be at Julie Murphy's slumber party piled in front of the TV in our jammies, both screaming with laughter and clutching each other the minute someone leaned in for a kiss.

This book is: Hilarious. Quietly poignant.

I would like to lock Lauren DeStefano in an attic so she does nothing other than turn out charming middle grade novels for the rest of her life. But I suppose that would be unreasonable.

You'll love this book if the sad, tender pull between Liesl and

I like complicated situations and characters. What I don't like are characters who continue to willfully hurt others over and over and over and over and over again--including the few innocent/nice bystanders--and who otherwise have absolutely zero in ...more

The few chapters seemed great, but I quickly lost interest after pages and pages of tedious conversations and pointless encounters. The ending was at least marginally interesting/different, but the way it was executed left me impatient and indifferen ...more

Stephanie Oakes
“I replay the scene again and again, the broken mashed-up face looming over me, the knowledge between the two of us that I'd done it. That act of kindness is still more unfathomable to me than any cruelty.”
Stephanie Oakes, The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly

Leigh Bardugo
“When evening fell the boy would bring the girl a glass of tea, a slice of lemon cake, an apple blossom floating in a blue cup. He would kiss her neck and whisper new names in her ear: beauty, beloved, cherished, my heart.”
Leigh Bardugo, Ruin and Rising
tags: love

Sarah J. Maas
“And then I am going to rattle the stars.”
Sarah J. Maas, Heir of Fire

Sarah J. Maas
“She was not afraid. She would remake the world - remake it for them, those she had loved with this glorious, burning heart; a world so brilliant and prosperous that when she saw them again in the Afterworld, she would not be ashamed. She would build it for her people, who had survived this long, and whom she would not abandon. She would make them a kingdom such as there never had been, even if it took until her last breath.”
Sarah J. Maas, Heir of Fire

Stephanie Oakes
“Jude taught me what love was: to be willing to hold on to another person's pain. That's it.”
Stephanie Oakes, The Sacred Lies of Minnow Bly
