Lessons I Never Learned at Meadowbrook Academy is a book that requires your patience.

When I read the first two or three chapters, I wanted to smack Roberta, the protagonist, with a hardbound book. Her parents worked so hard to give her a wonderful op

When I first downloaded a free copy of this short story, I was expecting a light, frothy read that I wouldn't have to think about too much.

I was so wrong.

When I first read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy a few years ago, I didn't understand why people thought it was funny.

Darlyn and 3 other people liked Sam Ware's review of The Elementalists:
The Elementalists by C.  Sharp
"Before I write my review of this YA novel. I need to talk about the trolls that have reviewed this book without even finishing it. I think that this is very unfair to a new author. I can't imagine what it would take to sit down day after day and t..." Read more of this review »

Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson

“...falling in love and trying to make someone fall in love with you and working to stay in love and forcing yourself to fall out of love with someone who will never love you back is much, much more exhausting than being alone.”
Marla Miniano, Table for Two

Marla Miniano
“It's the little things she needs someone for, like someone to hold her hand at the end of a long day, or someone to watch stupid comedies with, or someone to curl up with on the couch on a lazy Sunday morning as she reads the newspaper and eats her cereal. Which probably means she doesn't 'need' someone in the strictest sense, although at the end of a long day, or while watching a stupid comedy, or on a lazy Sunday morning, having someone would be very much appreciated.”
Marla Miniano, Table for Two

Jandy Nelson
“I wish my shadow would get up and walk beside me.”
Jandy Nelson, The Sky is Everywhere

Sarah Dessen
“Love is an excuse to put up with the shit that you shouldn't. That's how it gets you. It throws off the scales so that things that should weigh heavily don't seem to. It's a crock. A trap.”
Sarah Dessen, This Lullaby

Marla Miniano
“Guys are so easy to drive out of your life, especially when their interest in you has mostly been sustained by your blind, naive, hopelessly hopeful interest in them.”
Marla Miniano, Table for Two
