Wendy Darling
Wendy Darling added a status update: My sincere apologies to authors I've had to unfollow because of this new asinine feature: https://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/... We're being forced into proclaiming a fan/author relationship, since apparently a genuine connection over books is not enough. No offense meant, and if this policy changes in the future, I'll gladly accept friend invitations from authors. UGH.

I forgot I had this book. I read it years ago and loved it. Felt like I was smacked in the medieval era. Only problem: I have not yet read the series for this book.

***Review in both French and English***

Mon avis en français :

La lecture commence plutôt froidement et sans espoir : le mari de Amy Dunne, Nick, nous raconta de la tête de sa femme… et ce qui est à l‘intérieur. Amy Dunne est perdue—manquant, en fait.

Edit 2 December 2014: 3.5 stars! Bumping my rating to 4.5 stars!

I think we can all agree that Sarah J. Maas is a damned good writer and a fantastic entertainer. Assassin's Blade is one of my all time favourite book, and I have a very few of those.

Mon avis en français :

Il me faut admettre que je suis plutôt jalouse à chaque fois que j’entends ou lis à propos des voyages de quelqu’un en Europe. Mon continent préféré est l'Europe. Je l’adore. Le fait que l'Europe consiste en de nombreux pays co

"If I stay. If I live. It’s up to me."

Giving this a two star rating genuinely hurts me. I adore Forman's writing, especially with Just One Day, she did an excellent job with the showing of the setting in Paris and even for that one chapter in the UK.

Mon petit avis en français :

Franchement, je suis tellement déçue. Les années 20 m’intéressent beaucoup à cause de la musique, de la mode, du langage, et de l’époque en général. Par contre, je n’en ai pas du tout reçu. Enzo (un homme principal) était

Well, damn. Sins & Needles was a deliciously dark read.

I always complain about living in this era. I've always wanted to live either in the Roaring '20s or back in the Medieval Times (and I'm well aware of the struggles in those days, too). I co

Tahereh Mafi
“I spent my life folded between the pages of books.
In the absence of human relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence by association. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction.”
Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

Charles William Eliot
“Books are the quietest and most constant of friends; they are the most accessible and wisest of counselors, and the most patient of teachers.”
Charles William Eliot

Virginia Woolf
“Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.”
Virginia Woolf, A Room of One's Own

George R.R. Martin
“A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

Stacia Kane
“Readers have the right to say whatever the fuck they want about a book. Period. They have that right. If they hate the book because the MC says the word “delicious” and the reader believes it’s the Devil’s word and only evil people use it, they can shout from the rooftops “This book is shit and don’t read it” if they want. If they want to write a review entirely about how much they hate the cover, they can if they want. If they want to make their review all about how their dog Foot Foot especially loved to pee on that particular book, they can."
