Possibly three and a half stars. The writing is improving and while things were a bit predicable, not nearly as much as the last two books and I definitely felt drawn in by this one. The focus felt better anchored on what the universe was about (the ...more

The Broken Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin
"I've thought a lot about why N.K. Jemisin's writing doesn't appeal as much to me as it should. Undoubtedly, The Broken Kingdoms was an infinitely better book than The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms. You could almost see Jemisin grow as a writer and as..." Read more of this review »

I probably liked this a little more than the first Inheritance cycle since it was a bit more grounded, but I found the endgame predictable which lessened my enjoyment of it. Still worth a read and I do find the mythology surrounding the world very in ...more

Yes Please by Amy Poehler
"

YES REALLY. I almost gave this two stars, except it includes George Clooney and that would be a crime.

This book is fine. It didn't charm me. It actually took me about three or four days to read 288 pages, which is funny because a lot of those pag..." Read more of this review »
The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin
"This is a good book. It's also not necessarily a book to my tastes!

Kanye West
“Society has put up so many boundaries, so many limitations on what’s right and wrong that it’s almost impossible to get a pure thought out. It’s like a little kid, a little boy, looking at colors, and no one told him what colors are good, before somebody tells you you shouldn’t like pink because that’s for girls, or you’d instantly become a gay two-year-old. Why would anyone pick blue over pink? Pink is obviously a better color. Everyone’s born confident, and everything’s taken away from you”
Kanye West

Kristin Cashore
“It's not fair. It's not fair," she cried, knowing it was a child's argument but not caring, because being childish did not make it untrue.”
Kristin Cashore, Fire

Gregory Maguire
“The sweet accident of coincidence is the best foundation on which to build.”
Gregory Maguire, Out of Oz

George R.R. Martin
“My skin has turned to porcelain, to ivory, to steel.”
George R.R. Martin, A Storm of Swords

Mindy Kaling
“People get scared when you try to do something, especially when it looks like you're succeeding. People do not get scared when you're failing. It calms them. But when you're winning, it makes them feel like they're losing or, worse yet, that maybe they should've tried to do something too, but now it's too late. And since they didn't, they want to stop you. You can't let them.”
Mindy Kaling, Why Not Me?
