Amanda R Amanda R wants to read And All the Stars
The Ice Dragon by George R.R. Martin

I can't really figure out who this book is for--and neither can the bookstore for that matter. It's written so that a 7 or 8 year old could read it, but the content is dark enough it's been put in the YA section. Still, it seems mostly to be f..." Read more of this review »
Alex is on page 322 of 480 of In Your Dreams: As long as her parents aren't on the book, I'm sort of okay. Really, what's with Higgins and super cringe worthy parents?

Cath Crowley
“You don't have to love someone to have sex with them.'
'I know that,' I say, trying to act like I'm not embarrassed for thinking love and sex are the same thing. I know they're not but I want them to be close enough to at least brush each other as they pass.”
Cath Crowley, Graffiti Moon

Laura Nowlin
“This book is a treasure; I did not suspect it would be so good when I picked it up, but now I can feel the printed words seeping through my skin and into my veins, rushing to my heart and marking it forever.

I want to savor this wonder, this happening of loving a book and reading it for the first time, because the first time is always the best, and I will never read this book for the first time ever again.”
Laura Nowlin, If He Had Been with Me

Delphine de Vigan
“And when he catches me looking at him, he gives me this incredibly sweet, calm smile, and I think that we've got our lives ahead of us, our whole lives.”
Delphine de Vigan, No and Me

“Shame isn't a quiet grey cloud, shame is a drowning man who claws his way on top of you, scratching and tearing your skin, pushing you under the surface.”

Like now, when Dave's walking next to me wearing an old black singlet and board shorts and the tattoo of a bird on his wrist, every single word in my head except "no" and "huh" is lying somewhere on a beack getting a suntan”
Cath Crowley, A Little Wanting Song
