The Geek Girl's Guide to Cheerleading by Charity Tahmaseb
"The Geek Girl's Guide To Cheerleading had been on my radar, but I did not have too much desire to read it due to its lackluster cover until I stumbled across it at the new neighborhood library and thought "Why not? I'll give it a whirl since it at..." Read more of this review »

The smalltown Grebe reminded me a lot of Neptune (the hometown of Veronica Mars). It just wasn't as shiny as the little pseudo hollywood and the beautiful, powerful and ruthlessly corrupt families with their moneyed fingers stuck deep into the police ...more

I bought this with my pocket money in 1986 and read it many times. So many times, in fact, that I covered the fraying dust jacket with sticky foil eventually. I guess, I liked stories about girls pretending to be boys and having to deal with all the ...more

“She seemed to think reading was some sort of hobby, as opposed to being as necessary as breathing, sleeping, and eating.”
Michelle Cooper, The FitzOsbornes at War

Ilona Andrews
“« Barabas pulled Christopher out of the cage. The man stared up at him. “I died, didn’t I? Are you an angel?”
“Sure,” Barabas said. “Follow me to the Heavenly Shower »”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Rises

Laini Taylor
“We’re playing Three Wishes,” she told her friend. “Cake, hot bath, soft bed. How about you?”
“World peace,” said Karou.
Zuzana rolled her eyes. “Yes, Saint Karou.”
“Cure for cancer,” Karou went on. “And unicorns for all.”
“Bluh. Nothing ruins Three Wishes like altruism. It has to be something for yourself, and if it doesn’t include food, it’s a lie.”
“I did include food. I said unicorns, didn’t I?”
“Mmm. You’re craving unicorn, are you?” Zuzana’s brow furrowed. “Wait. Do they have those here?”
“Alas, no.”
“They did,” said Mik. “But Karou ate them all.”
“I am a voracious unicorn predator.”
Laini Taylor, Dreams of Gods & Monsters

Ilona Andrews
“I had forgotten that talking to you is like trying to pet a cactus." Saiman said dryly. "Thank you for reminding me."
"Always happy to oblige.”
Ilona Andrews, Magic Rises

E. Lockhart
“Elaine Oliver is one of those people who thinks she needs to yell into a cell phone and cannot imagine anyone else might hear her conversation. 'I'm stiff from that yoga class Juana made me go to!' she was shouting, presumably to Dad. 'I did something to my groin area. ... Sure, you can massage it later.”
E. Lockhart, The Treasure Map of Boys: Noel, Jackson, Finn, Hutch, Gideon—and me, Ruby Oliver
