This series is nearing its end, and with that, the line between good and bad is blurring significantly. Throughout this story, I have developed more and more pity for the Baudelaire’s kids as they have battled to make good, just decisions whilst face ...more

Another Bones book, but a rather forgettable one. I only read this one eight or so months ago, but I don’t remember it as well. Pretty sure Brennan got herself into big trouble at the NASCAR and there was some confusion over how a body got where it e ...more

Kristin Cashore
“His name was Death. It was pronounced to rhyme with "teeth", but Bitterblue liked to mispronounce it by accident on occassion.”
Kristin Cashore, Bitterblue

Rosamund Hodge
“His hands tightened around mine. “I love you,” he said. “I love you more than any other creature, because you are cruel, and kind, and alive. Nyx Triskelion, will you be my wife?”
I knew it was insane to be happy, to feel this desperate exultation at his words. But I felt like I had been waiting all my life to hear them. I had been waiting, all my life, for someone undeceived to love me. And now he did, and it felt like walking into the dazzling sunlight of the Heart of Earth.
Except that the sunlight was false, and his love was real.
It was real.
Very deliberately, I pulled my hands out of his. “You’re a demon,” I said, staring at the ground.
“Most likely.”
“I know what you’ve done.”
“The exciting parts, anyway.”
“And I still don’t know your name.” My hands trembled as I undid my belt, then started to unclasp the brooches. It seemed forever since that first day when I had ripped my bodice open so
easily. “But I know you’re my husband.”
The dress slid down to land on the ground about my feet. Ignifex touched my cheek very gently, as if I was a bird that might be startled into flight. Finally I met his eyes.
“And,” I said. “I suppose I do love you.”
Then he pulled me into his arms.”
Rosamund Hodge, Cruel Beauty

Chuck Palahniuk
“The first time we meet another person an insidious little voice in our heads says, "I might wear eyeglasses or be chunky around the hips or a girl, but at least I'm not Gay or Black or a Jew." Meaning: I may be me- but at least I have the good sense not to be YOU.”
Chuck Palahniuk, Damned

George Bernard Shaw
“The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”
George Bernard Shaw, Man and Superman

Kristin Cashore
“Katsa and Po were trying to drown each other and, judging from their hoots of laughter, enjoying it immensely.”
Kristin Cashore, Bitterblue
