Black Rabbit Hall is one of those books that's So. Hard. for me to discuss in any coherent manner. Anything I type wants to come out bolded and in all caps with about a million exclamation points. That's exactly what this novel did to me - it complet ...more

The more I think about Seven Ways We Lie the less I like it. What could have been a great read boiled down to a checklist of every 'teen issue' the author could think of to cram within its pages: abandonment, divorce, teacher/student relationship, dr ...more

While Girl Last Seen was fast-paced and readable to the point of being a one-sitting read, the big 'twist' reveal felt like a cop-out and the latter half of the story was a descent into insanity: a rape subplot, poisoning, Jude's super creepy stalkin ...more

Wild Wood is an incredibly engaging read, but also a very slow read. It took me 4 days to get through it's 400-odd pages. It's also the rare novel where I found myself enjoying - and preferring - one storyline over the other: Bayard's tale was fascin ...more

“Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. On the outside, babies, you've got a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies-"God damn it, you've got to be kind.”

“The last thing I ever wanted was to be alive when the three most powerful people on the whole planet would be named Bush, Dick and Colon.”

“Everything was beautiful and nothing hurt.”
Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

Kurt Vonnegut
“And on the subject of burning books: I want to congratulate librarians, not famous for their physical strength or their powerful political connections or their great wealth, who, all over this country, have staunchly resisted anti-democratic bullies who have tried to remove certain books from their shelves, and have refused to reveal to thought police the names of persons who have checked out those titles.

So the America I loved still exists, if not in the White House or the Supreme Court or the Senate or the House of Representatives or the media. The America I love still exists at the front desks of our public libraries.”
Kurt Vonnegut, A Man Without a Country

“And I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 'If this isn't nice, I don't know what is.”
