The writing is decent, but I'm a new-Who girl, and many of the essays were about classic Who, and that went over my head. I haven't had time to explore it, nor any spin off books or magazines. It's not a bad book, this just wasn't good timing for me, ...more

This book was amazing! Huge reminder that what I was doing all along was right. I just needed to tweak a few things and just... wow. That's all I can say. Loved this.
Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James

A true soul mate is probably the most important person you'll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.

Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
