Very... very... very... yeah. Fantasy much?! But okay, she managed to take me through eight (EIGHT!!!) lovers in pursuit of academic excellence. So, okay. The writing was good; it didn't ever get boring.

Vain by Fisher Amelie
“Fear, sadness. They’re not weaknesses. They are overpowering, defining emotions. They make you human, Sophie.”
“They are signs of defect,” I told him, reverting back to curt Sophie.
“Says who?”
“Because I — because...”
“Let me guess. Because you are not proud of yourself? Because you despise who you are?”
“Because, if you show these emotions, they acknowledge those thoughts?”
I was deadly silent for five minutes at least. “Yes,” I stated, breaking the absence of sound.
“Do something about it.”
“There’s nothing to do. I’m lost.”
“Bullshit. You don’t really believe that. You want to stick with what’s easy for you. You foresee the amount of work it would take to transform yourself and you’re too frightened to embrace the challenge. Now, that, Sophie Price, is a real weakness.”

Vain by Fisher Amelie
“Promise me you'll give it all to God and let him decide it for you. He'll gift you no regrets. [...]

You may have misery, you may lose hope in the sorrow of an unplanned life but as long as you have faith and trust in adoration, in affection, in love, that sorrow will turn to happiness. And that is a constant, dear.”

So, that was unexpected.

This book made me tear up, more times than I care to admit. The text boasts a number of self-reflective gems that I haven't seen in romance YA books for a long time.

Two stars simply because I miss Jared and Tate. Was interesting to see how the author compared and contrasted two alpha male heroes: Jared and Jax. Loved Jax, KC was okay. Mostly because I still remember her from Bully and it was a bit hard from seei ...more

NICE. Only because I've been dying to get into this guy's head and read the story from his point of view. In general, I like the guy perspective, even when I know a woman wrote it. Way to suspend my disbelief. This is a very light, enjoyable read. #G ...more

OH MY. That's all I have to say. Guilty pleasure, this one is. Utterly unbelievable, to say the least. Or is, if you're that kind of girl who can fall for this crap. But I understand, if you're as fucked up as they are. I'm SURE there are a lot of ki ...more

“Not all powers are spectacular." Hestia looked at me. "Sometimes the hardest power to master is the power of yielding.”
Rick Riordan, The Last Olympian

Victor Hugo
“The power of a glance has been so much abused in love stories, that it has come to be disbelieved in. Few people dare now to say that two beings have fallen in love because they have looked at each other. Yet it is in this way that love begins, and in this way only.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Victor Hugo
“To love another person is to see the face of God.”
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

“He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often, and loved much;
Who has enjoyed the trust of pure women, the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children;
Who has filled his niche and accomplished his task;
Who has never lacked appreciation of Earth's beauty or failed to express it;
Who has left the world better than he found it,
Whether an improved poppy, a perfect poem, or a rescued soul;
Who has always looked for the best in others and given them the best he had;
Whose life was an inspiration;
Whose memory a benediction.”
Bessie Anderson Stanley, More Heart Throbs Volume Two in Prose and Verse Dear to the American People And by them contributed as a Supplement to the original $10,000 Prize Book HEART THROBS

Joseph Heller
“As always occurred when he quarreled over principles in which he believed passionately, he would end up gasping furiously for air and blinking back bitter tears of conviction. There were many principles in which Clevinger believed passionately. He was crazy.”
Joseph Heller, Catch 22
