My YA John Green reading marathon is over- great books with great strong female young people navigating the world in their unique ways. I'd put this in the #2 position after FIOS before Paper Towns. Great read!

Couldn't finish this one- although the writing was good and the premise interesting. Just couldn't grab me.

Wow- Emma Bovary was quite a piece of work. Conniving, adulterous, horrible mother-- her husband was a mess though too. I love that his was such a scandalous book when it first came out less than 100 years ago- Great classic to read on slow summer da...more

Sylvia Plath
“I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

Terry Tempest Williams
“Word by word, the language of women so often begins with a whisper.”
Terry Tempest Williams, When Women Were Birds: Fifty-four Variations on Voice

Ernest Hemingway
“Never to go on trips with anyone you do not love.”
Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

L.M. Montgomery
“It's been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will.”
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

L.M. Montgomery
“I doubt if I shall ever have time to read the book again -- there are too many new ones coming out all the time which I want to read. Yet an old book has something for me which no new book can ever have -- for at every reading the memories and atmosphere of other readings come back and I am reading old years as well as an old book.”
L.M. Montgomery, The Selected Journals Of L.M. Montgomery, Vol. 3: 1921-1929
