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

" Well, I did like this book. Don't get me wrong. But I have to admit that I'm mighty disappointed. This is the 4th book in the series, so imagine my surprise when the main character of the series barely makes an appearance in this installment. This... " Read more of this review »

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

Rachel Hartman
“That’s the secret to performance: conviction. The right note played tentatively still misses its mark, but play boldly and no one will question you. If one believes there is truth in art – and I do – then it’s troubling how similar the skill of performing is to lying. Maybe lying is itself a kind of art. I think about that more than I should.”
Rachel Hartman, Seraphina

“But I’m not the one digging her grave; I didn’t open her hole in the earth when I drove away that night or when I couldn’t make her come with us. My dad dug it years ago; he forced her to lie down in it and kept her there by fear and beatings. And when she tried to get out, he stomped her back in. She has been lying there for twenty-five years. Her muscles have atrophied, her joints have stiffened, and she can’t see anything except him and the tight little space she calls home. I don’t know how she’ll get out; I can tug and pull and yank, but it won’t make any difference. She was right: she’s gotta solve it her own way.”
Swati Avasthi, Split

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

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
