Rachel (BAVR) and 4 other people liked Karla's status update
Karla is 5% done with DESTINY: Sorry, history, but having all of Mary of Scotland's ladies-in-waiting also called Mary is silly.

Clarity, history. CLARITY.

Nomad by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
"Religion has always mystified me, even as a kid.

When I heard about the whole "no meat on Friday" thing as a young grade schooler, I immediately - and for years afterward - assumed that these people would get sick if they ate a wrong food on a spec..." Read more of this review »
Rachel (BAVR) and 2 other people liked Sarah's status update
Sarah is on page 58 of 288 of A Dark and Brooding Gentleman: 'The breath caught in his throat, for there in the waters of the Black Loch was a woman--a young, naked woman. Her long hair, dark reddish brown, wet & swirling around her, her skin ivory where she lay beneath the surface of the water, so still that he wondered if she were drowned.'
A Dark and Brooding Gentleman by Margaret McPhee
" I feel like all McPhee heroes are dark and brooding gentlemen. That's not a bad thing. :P "
Delta Blood by Barbara Ferry Johnson
" It was probably the painkillers at the time.

LOL. Happens to the best of us. :P

“You love me. Real or not real?"
I tell him, "Real.”
Suzanne Collins, Mockingjay

L.M. Montgomery
“I've loved you ever since that day you broke your slate over my head in school.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of the Island

L.M. Montgomery
“Don't be very frightened, Marilla. I was walking the ridge-pole and I fell off. I suspect I have sprained my ankle. But, Marilla, I might have broken my neck. Let us look on the bright side of things.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

Tina Fey
“But I think the first real change in women’s body image came when JLo turned it butt-style. That was the first time that having a large-scale situation in the back was part of mainstream American beauty. Girls wanted butts now. Men were free to admit that they had always enjoyed them. And then, what felt like moments later, boom—Beyoncé brought the leg meat. A back porch and thick muscular legs were now widely admired. And from that day forward, women embraced their diversity and realized that all shapes and sizes are beautiful. Ah ha ha. No. I’m totally messing with you. All Beyonce and JLo have done is add to the laundry list of attributes women must have to qualify as beautiful. Now every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes.”
Tina Fey, Bossypants

Kelly Creagh
“Words, Isobel, have always held the dangerous power to conjure things into being. Remember that.”

The Eunuch and the Pearl (Romance)
4 chapters   —   updated Jan 21, 2013 07:11PM
Description: This is my original regency romance about a hero with some REAL problems. This is the glorious love child created with some dazzling ideas from my Goodreads friends. Warning: <i>The Eunuch and the Pearl</i> is a parody of the historical romance genre.
