Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty
"Can't put it down

Very creative style of writing and keeps you on the edge of your seat til you're done. Especially relative to mom's everywhere. You find yourself wondering which character would you and or your child be. "

Wanted to finish this, I really did. Forced myself to get 25% through it (page 85), but just couldn't go on. Boyle's writing is spectacular. Characters are relatable. But, but, BUT, the subject is just too much for me. Identity theft - and all the ba ...more

“You love people. They disappoint you. But sometimes, they don’t. They just keep loving you, right through it all, waiting for you to wake up and appreciate them. To say, “I love you. I’ve always loved you back.”
Courtney Maum, I Am Having So Much Fun Here Without You

Cheryl Strayed
“The universe, I'd learned, was never, ever kidding. It would take whatever it wanted and it would never give it back.”
Cheryl Strayed, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

Cheryl Strayed
“I was a terrible believer in things,but I was also a terrible nonbeliever in things. I was as searching as I was skeptical. I didn't know where to put my faith,or if there was such a place,or even what the word faith meant, in all of it's complexity. Everything seemed to be possibly potent and possibly fake.”
Cheryl Strayed, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

Courtney Maum
“I fell asleep smiling, fully at ease with the ludicrous prospect of spending the rest of my life with this one, single person. It's not quite right what they say: love doesn't make you blind, it makes you optimistic.”
