"Meh the story kind of fell apart towards the end. I was advised to read the story itself first, then reread and take in all the scribbles and inserts and such but... I'm going to take my time doing that." Dec 05, 2013 01:02AM

The Storyspinner came to me recommended by Christina - which is to say that she really liked it, so I figured I would as well. I was correct, of course, because Christina has such spectacular taste. The Storyspinner is a fun fantasy debut with

Oh, oh, The Winner's Crime. This is certainly one of the most hyped up young adult series at the moment, and yet again I find myself not necessarily the black sheep - because I do like it - but the puzzled sheep, who really doesn't understand

"2.5 stars. I'm sorry but this was SO BORINGGGGG. She writes well, but OMGGGGGG. Get to the point already. Slow pacing is fine, but this was like TURTLE slow. And there wasn't much of a plot either.

Yes, I will read the final book because I am inve..." Read more of this review »

I start this review with pretty much a broken heart. Anyone who knows me has probably heard me yelling about my love for Cora Carmack. She could do no wrong in my eyes. Then... Inspire happened.

Inspire was an attempt to bring us something new:

Stitching Snow by R.C. Lewis
"I wanted to give it 4.5 stars, but then I tried to come up with anything I didn't like.. and I came to the realization I loved everything. The negative reviews really confuse me, but okay. I'm just really happy this book lived up to my expectation..." Read more of this review »

Tahereh Mafi
“Words are like seeds, I think, planted into our hearts at a tender age. They take root in us as we grow, settling deep into our souls. The good words plant well. They flourish and find homes in our hearts. They build trunks around our spines, steadying us when we’re feeling most flimsy; planting our feet firmly when we’re feeling most unsure. But the bad words grow poorly. Our trunks infest and spoil until we are hollow and housing the interests of others and not our own. We are forced to eat the fruit those words have borne, held hostage by the branches growing arms around our necks, suffocating us to death, one word at a time.”
Tahereh Mafi, Ignite Me

“Not at all. You look as though magic has taken hold of you. It must be magic because I don't know how you can draw like that. I can barely manage a stick figure.”
Sharon Biggs Waller, A Mad, Wicked Folly

Laini Taylor
“You are a conniving, deceitful hussy. I stand in awe."
"You're sitting."
"I sit in awe.”
Laini Taylor, Dreams of Gods & Monsters

Sharon Biggs Waller
“Without any warning, tears filled my eyes. No one had ever given me such a kind and thoughtful gift before. I pictured Will going into the shop, looking over the books, and then discovering the very one he knew I would love. I even pictured him watching as the clerk wrapped the volume in brown paper. I wondered if the clerk had tied the green bow on it or if Will had gone into a notion shop and chosen it himself. These were all small things, but kindness was built of small things.”
Sharon Biggs Waller, A Mad, Wicked Folly

John Corey Whaley
“Some people say dying alone is a fate worse than death itself. Well, they should try being alone during the living part sometimes. There's no quicker way to make you wonder why the hell you ever thought you'd want to return.”
John Corey Whaley, Noggin
