Seeker by Arwen Elys Dayton
"DNF around 20% because it's not just bad, it's fantastically nonsensical and dull. And there's probably going to be a love triangle.

There's some weird steampunk fantasy dojo shit going on and I can't be fucked to find out what the mystery is. " Read more of this review »

Another outstanding novel from Sepetys! It's harrowing but so thoughtfully written with fully fleshed out characters. Due to the nature of wartime, there are some depictions of atrocities that some readers may find disturbing. Well, every reader will ...more

The Secrets We Keep by Trisha Leaver
"Huge thank you to Farrar, Straus and Giroux Books for Young Readers & Netgalley for this ARC!

I have to admit something -- I can't remember the last time a book really made me legitimately angry while reading it, but here we are with The Secret..." Read more of this review »

Rachel Carson
“Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature -- the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”
Rachel Carson, Silent Spring

Gordon B. Hinckley
“Cultivate an attitude of happiness. Cultivate a spirit of optimism. Walk with faith, rejoicing in the beauties of nature, in the goodness of those you love, in the testimony which you carry in your heart concerning things divine.”
Gordon B. Hinckley

Anne Frank
“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”
Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl

Louise Erdrich
“When we are young, the words are scattered all around us. As they are assembled by experience, so also are we, sentence by sentence, until the story takes shape.”
Louise Erdrich, The Plague of Doves

Diarmuid O'Murchu
“Spirituality is not just about religion, or church attendance, or fidelity to one or other legal requirement. Spirituality is understood to be an innate wisdom of the human heart that enlivens a zest for life, a search for meaning and purpose, a love for all that is good and beautiful, a passion to create a better world, a sensitivity to the life-energy (God, if you wish) that permeates the entire cosmos.”
Diarmuid O'Murchu, Our World in Transition: Making Sense of a Changing World
