I think the only reason I didn't give this five stars is because it's not something I would generally read again. Though, it is something I'd be interested in seeing performed someday. The writing was really great, and I could feel the tension betwee...more

Walter Dean Myers is one of my favorite YA authors because he really knows how to create a compelling story -- not just with the plot, but with the story structure as well. "Shooter" is one of my favorite books by him because of the way he tries to l...more

I really enjoyed this book. It had a good flow to it and the tension of where things would go next kept me turning pages. There was just enough to keep me curious but not so much that it left me hanging for answers at the end. I liked the contrast be...more

This book had a great sampling of all the best known poets or poems. I really liked the mix they had here. I also loved the fact that they introduced each poet with a few lines about them and their works. There are too many poems inside to write abou...more

I was really into this book from the beginning. I liked the format of the letters, and some of the letters had some really funny, sweet moments that told so much about Laurel and Jack. As the story went on, though, there were still a lot of things th...more

I got this manga in a random box of mangas I bought at a sale. It is a weird story, but it seems fun and has a complicated plot from what I can tell. The butler is a mysterious figure and kind of humorous. There is definitely a lot to figure out abou...more

Dante Alighieri
“At grief so deep the tongue must wag in vain; the language of our sense and memory lacks the vocabulary of such pain.”
Dante Alighieri, Inferno

Thomas Mann
“Solitude gives birth to the original in us, to beauty unfamiliar and perilous - to poetry. But also, it gives birth to the opposite: to the perverse, the illicit, the absurd.”
Thomas Mann, Death in Venice and Other Tales

Glen Cook
“Morning is wonderful. Its only drawback is that it comes at such an inconvenient time of day.”
Glen Cook, Sweet Silver Blues

Leo Rosten
“O, to be sure, we laugh less and play less and wear uncomfortable disguises like adults, but beneath the costume is the child we always are, whose needs are simple, whose daily life is still best described by fairy tales.”
Leo Rosten

Rebecca West
“I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat.”
