There are certain nuggets… certain lines or sentiments that I stockpile when I read.. I find them on pieces of paper towels or on the back of notebooks, I’ve stopped writing them on my arms since it grosses my husband out…. but they are still there, ...more

Holy Hell, I hated this book.

I’ve heard about the stigma surrounding it, the ‘found’ diary, the banning, and the horror of a girl getting caught up in drugs. I also heard how profound an effect it had on society at the time of its release.

It was 25

Sorry, I had to get that out. This is the 2nd book that I’ve read this year. TWO, DOS, NUMÉRO DEUX. 1/3 of the year down and TWEE. This is reprehensible. I am a sea anemone but not as cute. I am shamed.

Kim and 5 other people liked Kwoomac's review of The Goldfinch:
The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
"If the writer's credo "write what you know" applies here then Donna Tartt knows a lot about a lot of different things. The Goldfinch is an epic tale of the life of Theo Potter in the wake of a bombing at the museum he was visiting with his mother...." Read more of this review »

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt
"I have 18 pages left to read, but I'm writing the review now to keep myself from peeking at the end.

When I was a school librarian, I once read a book to a Kindergarten class. I forget the title, but it involved a character who had lost something v..." Read more of this review »

Daniel Handler
“Ed, it was everything, those nights on the phone, everything we said until late became later and then later and very late and finally to go to bed with my ear warm and worn and red from holding the phone close close close so as not to miss a word of what it was, because who cared how tired I was in the humdrum slave drive of our days without each other. I’d ruin any day, all my days, for those long nights with you, and I did. But that’s why right there it was doomed. We couldn’t only have the magic nights buzzing through the wires. We had to have the days, too, the bright impatient days spoiling everything with their unavoidable schedules, their mandatory times that don’t overlap, their loyal friends who don’t get along, the unforgiven travesties torn from the wall no matter what promises are uttered past midnight, and that's why we broke up.”
Daniel Handler, Why We Broke Up

Shalom Auslander
“Roads are no place for naive chickens dreaming of nirvana.”
Shalom Auslander, Hope: A Tragedy

Alice Clayton
“He was wooing me. And I was letting him woo. I wanted the woo. I deserved the woo. I needed the wow that would surely follow the woo, but for now, the woo? It was whoa.”
Alice Clayton, Wallbanger

Rick Yancey
“I do not mean to mock or ridicule your life's work, for in one way at least it mimics my own: We have dedicated our lives to the pursuit of phantoms. The difference is the nature of those phantoms. Mine exist between other men's ears; yours live solely between your own.”
Rick Yancey, The Monstrumologist

“He wanted to tell her how much he preferred to look at her, that only by watching could he memorize her, and take her and possess her. He did not know how to explain that he could not touch better or more fully with his hands than he could with his eyes. Seeing encompassed all at once; a touch was limited to one spot at a time.”
Jerzy Kosinksi
