I find that short stories are the hardest to read & write. Kelly Link writes short stories extremely well. There were a few here that were stellar & the rest were very good. There was a lot of imagination in these stories & I can't wait t...more

What an unpleasant story. 2 stars because it was well written, but no more because the story was just so bleak throughout. I couldn't find any light, I felt almost dirty reading this. Everything was so bad for everyone & there was just no hope, n...more

I'd give this book 1 star except for the fact that John Green wrote it well, I just didn't like the story he told. I didn't like any of the characters, and so when the big event happens near the end, which you can spot a mile away, I didn't care one...more

I don't think I can write a review for this book without gushing like a incomprehensible fool. I just love this woman's writing!! It's so... flawlessly magical. It's a bit cheesy I know, but it's the word that comes to mind. I feel like I'm enchanted...more

I won't mention this author's ties to the literary world because it would be doing him a disservice as he's a good writer & a talented author in his own right. This book was exactly what I wanted it to be. I was hanging in suspense & flew thr...more

When I was a kid I read all of Lurlene McDaniel's novels so I'm well used to sad fiction books about cancer, thus I didn't cry once while reading this book & I also knew everything that was going to happen exactly as it did so that probably took...more

Oscar Wilde
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde

Jorge Luis Borges
“A writer - and, I believe, generally all persons - must think that whatever happens to him or her is a resource. All things have been given to us for a purpose, and an artist must feel this more intensely. All that happens to us, including our humiliations, our misfortunes, our embarrassments, all is given to us as raw material, as clay, so that we may shape our art.”
Jorge Luis Borges, Twenty-Four Conversations with Borges: Interviews by Roberto Alifano 1981-1983

Joss Whedon
“Remember to always be yourself. Unless you suck.”
Joss Whedon

I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.
