The MC is a virgin. And also pregnant.

Two of the main subjects I steer clear from in young adult are teen pregnancy and religion; this book has both.

But damn does it sound interesting.
Emily May added a status update: I read by the Golden Gate bridge! My reading around the world adventures prompted me to write this blog about the importance of place in the reading community: http://blog.leafmarks.com/2014/09/17/...
I guess it's a little controversial so I'd love to know your thoughts :)

I have been saving this book. Just waiting for the right moment for us to come together and love one another. And this book is fine, I guess. It's okay. But I really don't see the magic that prompted so many five star ratings and literary awards.

"Sometimes the line between love and desperation is damn thin."

You know, when I was around eleven to fourteen I had this friendship with a girl called Lizzy, and it may still be the most complex relationship I've ever had. I didn't have many frien...more

Allow me to summarize this book: Two extremely irritating and stupid teenage girls do stupid things to put themselves in danger and then the MC spends the rest of the novel somewhere between lusting after one of her captors and hoping to be saved by...more

“It's not the world that's the stage - it's social media, where you're trying to put on a show. The rest of your life is rehearsals, prepping in the wings to be fabulous online.”

Well, hmm. I'm not sure what to say.

On the one hand, Beukes once agai...more

Genre-defying historical paranormal mystery with a touch of humour, anyone?

“What is it?” My question came as a whisper, my eyes straining to see the invisible.
Jackaby’s voice was softer still: “Death.”

I'm not sure what to say about Heir of Fire. Perhaps I don't need to say anything beyond: it took me months to read it. And I am the kind of crazy passionate reader that finishes good books in a day or two. It's been a while since a book took me long...more

“There is no hell, John Temsland. Each man, when he dies, sees the landscape of his own soul.”

This book kind of stomped all over my heart. Not because of the love story, which I don't consider a spoiler because anyone with a brain will see it coming...more

*Maybe* I am too old for this book. That is one possible explanation. The other possible explanation is that this book really is just kinda lame. And tame.

Since You've Been Gone tries to be a cutesy summer story about the friendship between two teena...more

“Yeah, Quirrell was a great teacher. There was just that minor drawback of him having Lord Voldemort sticking out of the back of his head!”

Mark Twain
“I was gratified to be able to answer promptly, and I did. I said I didn’t know.”
Mark Twain

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“It is better to remain silent at the risk of being thought a fool, than to talk and remove all doubt of it.”
Maurice Switzer

Douglas Adams
“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe
