Flat-Out Celeste by Jessica Park
" While I enjoyed Flat Out Love as a good contemporary romance story that also had substance, I have to say that Flat-Out Celeste stands out even more for me. Celeste's story was beautiful from start to finish, and the fact that there was so much sh... " Read more of this review »

On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
" “He’s the most beautiful creature I have ever seen and it’s not about his face, but the life force I can see in him. It’s the smile and the pure promise of everything he has to offer. Like he’s saying, ‘Here I am world, are you ready for so much... " Read more of this review »

I have no words to describe this novel. This is by far one of the best books I've read, and to be honest I wouldn't know how to even begin to explain why. Marchetta is just incredible, she has a gift. Her words are not just words, there's so much lif...more

Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
" Let's face it, a series is only as good as its last book. Is a kitchen towel drenched in my tears a good indicator of the quality of Mockingjay? I think it is, considering that I am not a crying-over-books type. I think this book is a FANTASTIC en... " Read more of this review »

On the Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
" This book is so fucked up. Completely, totally fucked up. Everybody in it is fucked up, and living their lives is fucked up, and by the time you're done with it, you're fucked up, but you can't tell because your head is cloudy from all the tears y... " Read more of this review »

Hannah Harrington
“It's the best kind of devastating there is. He took his pain and he turned it into something beautiful. Into something that people connect to. And that's what good music does. It speaks to you. It changes you. What I'm trying to say is, it's just nice, I guess, knowing that someone else can put into words what I feel. That there are people who have been through things worse than I have, and they came out on the other side okay. Not only that, but they have made some kind of twisted, effed up sense of the completely senseless. They made it mean something. These songs tell me I'm not alone. If you look at it that way, can see you through anything.”
Hannah Harrington, Saving June

Isaac Marion
“It frustrates and fascinates me that we'll never know for sure, that despite the best efforts of historians and scientists and poets, there are some things we'll just never know. What the first song sounded like. How it felt to see the first photograph. Who kissed the first kiss, and if it was any good.”
Isaac Marion, Warm Bodies

John Green
“What a slut time is. She screws everybody.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Neal Shusterman
“So tell us," says Connor, "in The World According to Hayden, when do we start to live?"
A long silence from Hayden, and then he says quietly, uneasily, "I don't know."
Emby razzes him. "That's not an answer."
But Connor reaches out and grabs Emby's arm, to shut him up- because Emby's wrong. Even though Connor can't see Hayden's face, he can hear the truth of it in his voice. There was no hint of evasion in Hayden's words. This was raw honesty, void of Hayden's usual flip attitude. It was perhaps the first truly honest thing Connor had ever heard him say. "Yes, it is an answer," Connor says. "Maybe it's the best answer of all. If more people could admit they really don't know, maybe there never would have been a Heartland War.”
Neal Shusterman, Unwind

Isaac Marion
“The past is made out of facts... I guess the future is just hope.”
Isaac Marion, Warm Bodies
