What a brave soul Viktor Frankl is, to lay out his experiences in a concentration camp so nakedly. These experiences were absolutely unimaginable to me, yet in the face of great hardship and what seemed like a hopeless situation, he was still able to...more

Sophie is a cute and believable heroine. She tries her best and is fairly mature, her age does nonetheless show through sometimes. Although this is realistic, some of the statements in this book had me wincing. For example, "Whatever reasons [the Bla...more

“Hold my hand because I might disappear.”
Melina Marchetta, On the Jellicoe Road

Leigh Bardugo
“I missed you every hour. And you know what the worst part was? It caught me completely by surprise. I'd catch myself just walking around to find you, not for any reason, just out of habit, because I'd seen something that I wanted to tell you about or because I wanted to hear your voice. And then I'd realize that you weren't there anymore, and every time, every single time, it was like having the wind knocked out of me. I've risked my life for you. I've walked half the length of Ravka for you, and I'd do it again and again and again just to be with you, just to starve with you and freeze with you and hear you complain about hard cheese every day. So don't tell me why we don't belong together," he said fiercely.”
Leigh Bardugo, Shadow and Bone

C. JoyBell C.

C.S. Lewis
“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: "What! You too?”
C.S. Lewis

Ernest Hemingway
“Going to another country doesn’t make any difference. I’ve tried all that. You can’t get away from yourself by moving from one place to another. There’s nothing to that.”
Ernest Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises
