I loved Veronica Mars. I was sad when it ended and I was thrilled when they made the movie. This book was a nice continuation of her story...fun and enjoyable, although it could have used a bit more Logan. I liked the noirish quality of this and the ...more

Cress by Marissa Meyer
"This is my 100th book of 2013 and it was magnificent.

NEED. WINTER. NOW.

When I first jumped on the Lunar Chronicles bandwagon, I was late to the party. I tend to avoid any novel in the blogosphere that is garnering a ton of hype, due to past expe..." Read more of this review »
Cress by Marissa Meyer
"Since this is book #3 of The Lunar Chronicles, I'm going to go into detail about the characters. (And, let's face it, they're the best part of a book.)

But before we face-plant inwards, the only thing you need to know about Cress is: IT IS BEYOND B..." Read more of this review »

W.B. Yeats
“For he would be thinking of love
Till the stars had run away
And the shadows eaten the moon.”
W.B. Yeats, Selected Poems and Four Plays

Virginia Woolf
“I am reading six books at once, the only way of reading; since, as you will agree, one book is only a single unaccompanied note, and to get the full sound, one needs ten others at the same time.”
Virginia Woolf, The Letters of Virginia Woolf: Volume Three, 1923-1928

Maurice Sendak
“Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He didn’t care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.”
Maurice Sendak

Susan Hill
“Books help to form us. If you cut me open, you will find volume after volume, page after page, the contents of every one I have ever read, somehow transmuted and transformed into me. Alice in Wonderland. the Magic Faraway Tree. The Hound of the Baskervilles. The Book of Job. Bleak House. Wuthering Heights. The Complete Poems of W H Auden. The Tale of Mr Tod. Howard''s End. What a strange person I must be. But if the books I have read have helped to form me, then probably nobody else who ever lived has read exactly the same books, all the same books and only the same books as me. So just as my genes and the soul within me make me uniquely me, so I am the unique sum of the books I have read. I am my literary DNA.”
Susan Hill, Howards End Is on the Landing: A Year of Reading from Home
