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.

Mina V. Esguerra is an expert at crafting complex characters. You immediately understand what ty

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.

Now, I wonder what the hell the old me was thinking.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy literally made me laugh out loud, and

Darlyn and 4 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
"Buy, Borrow, or Avoid?: Definitely absolutely buy -- and borrow if you can't!

Review: I just loved this book. Straight out loved it. The story is seemingly simple -- widower meets widow, develop late in life romance, obstacles get in the way -- but..." Read more of this review »
Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage by Haruki Murakami
"(Review first appeared at http://www.thenewdorkreviewofbooks.co...)

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

Jess C. Scott
“When someone loves you, the way they talk about you is different. You feel safe and comfortable.”
Jess C. Scott, The Intern

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

Cassandra Clare
“Something inside Clary cracked and broke, and words came pouring out. 'What do you want me to tell you? The truth? The truth is that I love Simon like I should love you, and I wish he was my brother and you weren't, but I can't do anything about that and neither can you!”
Cassandra Clare, City of Ashes

William Goldman
“Cynics are simply thwarted romantics.”
William Goldman, The Princess Bride
