Angela and 31 other people liked Tatiana's review of Unbecoming:
Unbecoming by Jenny Downham
"This story reminded me of Melina Marchetta's multi-generational family dramas. There are many family secrets and unresolved conflicts here, a lot of pain and misunderstanding. Luckily the narrative doesn't tip over into sappy melodrama, but stays..." Read more of this review »

Oh, this was such a lovely book. I was impressed with the writing, the characterization, and the distinct sense of time and place from the beginning and that continued throughout the entire novel. These are characters who the reader will love and sym

I picked this up, thinking it would be a great, light summer read about family and the beach and the beautiful Lowcountry of South Carolina. Unfortunately, I was met with very poor and repetitive writing, shallow and stereotyped characterization, and

The Summer Girls by Mary Alice Monroe
"Really have liked this authors previous books but am 1/3 of the way through this book and have to keep putting it down. I find that the author's overuse of adjectives and adverbs is truly distracting to the flow of the story. I have not been able..." Read more of this review »

"This is just not my kind of book. I read it because a friend gave it to me to read and I wanted to honor the gift, so I pulled myself through it kicking and screaming.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas

“You love me. Real or not real?"
I tell him, "Real.”
Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay

Katie Cotugno
“The hideous thing is this: I want to forgive him. Even after everything, I do. A baby before my 17th birthday and a future as lonely as the surface of the moon and still the sight of him feels like a homecoming, like a song I used to know but somehow forgot.”
Katie Cotugno, How to Love

Suzanne Collins
“So instead of acknowledging applause, I stand there unmoving while they take part in the boldest form of dissent they can manage. Silence. Which says we do not agree. We do not condone. All of this is wrong.”
Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games
