"Okay, color me bored. I don't know if it's the way it is being read or what, but I am not interested. Husband and I had to switch to something else for the duration of the car ride home." Jul 15, 2017 10:16AM

Eh. I blasted through the entire series in a couple of weeks. Long story short: read the first book, possibly the second, the other two are simple to read and only vaguely entertaining. The first book is STELLAR. The second book is all right - good c ...more

What a strange, sad story.

First of all, the historical aspect: this story takes place as Willie Lincoln falls ill and dies, as well as the days following his death and burial. The true historical aspect is told through quoted snippets of historical

Exit West by Mohsin Hamid

The refugee experience without the travel experience. It's the emotional way we grow together in love and again apart in love. How tragedy brings us together and tears us apart. How war changes the way we relate to one another based on simply where w ...more

I ... I don't know how to review this book. I spent 90% of the book with tears in my eyes and covering my gaping mouth.

Every white person should read this book. I thought I understood the racial divide. I couldn't have been more wrong. I just ... I'm

The Wicked Will Rise by Danielle  Paige

No where near as good as the first one, but hell, that's what I thought about the Two Towers also. Second books in trilogies have a tendency to be disappointing.

Side note, I'm now hearing there's some drama surrounding the author. Don't care. <3

Every single year, my husband and I go on vacation to Plum Island, MA. Now, the island is beautiful and amazing, but there is not a lot to do on the actual island itself (great brunch place, great bar, meddling other bar, but that's it). So we go int ...more

Robert A. Heinlein
“Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.”
Robert A. Heinlein

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Emily Brontë
“I cannot express it; but surely you and everybody have a notion that there is or should be an existence of yours beyond you. What were the use of my creation, if I were entirely contained here? My great miseries in this world have been Heathcliff's miseries, and I watched and felt each from the beginning: my great thought in living is himself. If all else perished, and he remained, I should still continue to be; and if all else remained, and he were annihilated, the universe would turn to a mighty stranger: I should not seem a part of it. My love for Linton is like the foliage in the woods: time will change it, I'm well aware, as winter changes the trees. My love for Heathcliff resembles the eternal rocks beneath: a source of little visible delight, but necessary. Nelly, I am Heathcliff! He's always, always in my mind: not as a pleasure, any more than I am always a pleasure to myself, but as my own being.”
Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights

Alan Moore
“My experience of life is that it is not divided up into genres; it’s a horrifying, romantic, tragic, comical, science-fiction cowboy detective novel. You know, with a bit of pornography if you're lucky.”
Alan Moore

Stephen King
“The road to hell is paved with adverbs.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft
