An odd story that explores contemporary Japanese issues like marriage, mental illness, and homosexuality. I didn't feel for the characters. The wife was always too angry and/or hysterical (I know it's because of her illness, but it still made her har...more

I don't know how this author managed to make every single character in this story unlikeable, even the victim, but she did it. The only character that wasn't detestable was the detective, but that's only because he was void of a personality. This sto...more

Catch Me If You Can (Romano and Albright, #1)

So, I was enjoying this: crazy cast of characters, art scene, likable main character, a good balance of mystery and romance. It was entertaining and a fun ride, but inexplicably (since this isn't the 1950s and this is a gay romance to boot), this boo...more

I think it's a good YA book, and will help teens who are bullied or feel isolated because they feel different. I liked that it also touched on the issue of having rocky relations with a divorced parent. However, as a reader who isn't in the target...more

My favorite cliche (friends to lovers) done right. There's nothing new about this story and everything is formulaic as formulaic gets, but it was steamy, the sexual tension was delicious, the guy was hot, and it was sweet, all in an perfect length...more

Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare

The easiest of Shakespeare's plays that I've read so far. His wit stands against the test of time and Beatrice and Benedick make a fun couple, but the plot line of Hero/Claudio had me wanting to throttle all of the characters for being so stupid, and...more

Nick Hornby
“You're fucked. You thought you were going to be someone, but now it's obvious you're nobody. You haven't got as much talent as you thought you had, and there was no Plan B, and you got no skills and no education, and now you're looking at forty or fifty years of nothing. Less than nothing, probably. That's pretty heavy. That's worse than having the brain thing, because what you got now will take a lot longer to kill you. You've got the choice of a slow, painful death, or a quick, merciful one.”
Nick Hornby, A Long Way Down

Barbara De Angelis
“If you aren't good at loving yourself, you will have a difficult time loving anyone, since you'll resent the time and energy you give another person that you aren't even giving to yourself.”
Barbara De Angelis

“No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.”

Aristotle
“One swallow does not make a summer,
neither does one fine day;
similarly one day or brief time of happiness does not make a person entirely happy.”
Aristotle, The Nicomachean Ethics

“I am in that temper that if I were under water I would scarcely kick to come to the top.”
