Erika L. is starting The Book Thief: Since I've been reading books about WWII lately, I guess there's no better time to re-read The Book Thief than right now. Might as well have my heart further broken while it's still in pieces over Code Name Verity and Rose Under Fire.

It's nice to see that this book still had surprises and little reveals about the famous web series. It was also refreshing to know the struggles Lizzie had in posting her videos for public consumption, which as I remember, one of the criticisms I stu...more

It's not my favorite Rainbow book, but I still liked it, and stayed up almost all night to finish it. It's not something that resonated with me, compared with her previous novels, but it's clear from her storytelling that the struggles Georgie had, c...more

Definitely better than the first, with more fleshed out characters (old and new), expansion of existing fantastical world, a cohesive plot, and suspenseful chain of events that happened to the peculiars. But what I loved most about it all is how Jaco...more

Oh man I loved this!!!! This is such a wonderful modern retelling of Cinderella's story, demolishing this idea of a patriarchal society most young girls are raised up to live in. I love Ella's voice, her strong grip on her will, her unrelenting desir...more
These Three Remain by Pamela Aidan
" "To her, he was the last man; for him, she seemed the only woman. Could fate have fashioned a more perfect twist or held him in any more derision?" -pg 148.

Ned Vizzini
“You see how the words work? They betray your mouth and walk away.”
Ned Vizzini, It's Kind of a Funny Story

Steve Sheinkin
“In the end, this is a difficult story to sum up. The making of the atomic bomb is one of history's most amazing examples of teamwork and genius and poise under pressure. But it's also the story of how humans created a weapon capable of wiping our species off the planet. It's a story with no end in sight.
And, like it or not, you're in it.”
Steve Sheinkin, Bomb: The Race to Build—and Steal—the World's Most Dangerous Weapon

Patrick Ness
“A book… it’s a world all on its own too. A world made of words, where you live for a while.”
Patrick Ness, More Than This

Kevin Powers
“All pain is the same. Only the details are different.”
Kevin Powers, The Yellow Birds

Jim Butcher
“Home is where, when you go there and tell people to get out, they have to leave.”
Jim Butcher, Skin Game
