My Heart and Other Black Holes by Jasmine Warga
"I came really close to DNFing this book at 96% on principle alone because I was fed one thing in the beginning of the novel, only to be force fed something entirely different by the end. My Heart and Other Black Holes had so much potential--a lot..." Read more of this review »
Annie and 139 other people liked Navessa's review of And One Last Thing ...:
And One Last Thing ... by Molly Harper
Welcome to another rant about Things People Don’t Want to Talk About.

I debated whether or not to write a review for this book. A lot of people loved it, and it’s increasingly difficult for me to find the energy to point out all the things that alm..." Read more of this review »
Annie and 23 other people liked Haleema 's status update
Haleema is on page 132 of 339 of Isla and the Happily Ever After: *on Isla's hair*
Isla: It never looks the same, does it? Inside, it's auburn. Outside, it's more of a red.
Josh: No, red isn't the right word. It's not auburn orange copper or bronze. It's fire. It's like watching a burning building.

Annie and 436 other people liked Tatiana's review of The Perks of Being a Wallflower:
The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky
"There may be a book in the world that can address, just within very few pages, suicide, molestation, domestic abuse, homosexuality, drug use, mental issues, first sexual experiences, rape, abortion, etc., and not sound like a Lifetime movie, but T..." Read more of this review »

“Readers have the right to say whatever the fuck they want about a book. Period. They have that right. If they hate the book because the MC says the word “delicious” and the reader believes it’s the Devil’s word and only evil people use it, they can shout from the rooftops “This book is shit and don’t read it” if they want. If they want to write a review entirely about how much they hate the cover, they can if they want. If they want to make their review all about how their dog Foot Foot especially loved to pee on that particular book, they can."

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

Lemony Snicket
“Simply put, dramatic irony is when a person makes a harmless remark, and someone else who hears it knows something that makes the remark have a different, and usually unpleasant, meaning. For instance, if you were in a restaurant and said out loud, "I can't wait to eat the veal marsala I ordered," and there were people around who knew that the veal marsala was poisoned and that you would die as soon as you took a bite, your situation would be one of dramatic irony.”
Lemony Snicket, The Reptile Room

“Fear of a name increases fear of the thing itself.”
