The Devil Wears Prada, except it's Dracula in pink heels this time. Very fun and light-hearted, although I found myself more drawn to the "chicky-lit" aspects of the story and more apt to flip over the extraneous vampire storyline.

Nancy Moser is in my top 3 when it comes to Contemporary Christian writing, but this story just did not dazzle me like the rest of her library. This just felt cheesy and contrived.

Another solid Kinsella! I just wish I'd have the pesky problem of waking up younger, more successful, and more beautiful! ;)

Erich Fromm
“It is naively assumed that the fact that the majority of people share certain ideas and feelings proves the validity of these ideas and feelings. Nothing could be further from the truth. Consensual validation as such has no bearing on reason or mental health.”
Erich Fromm

Marya Hornbacher
“And so I went through the looking glass, stepped into the netherworld, where up is down and food is greed, where convex mirrors cover the walls, where death is honor and flesh is weak. It is ever so easy to go. Harder to find your way back.”
Marya Hornbacher, Wasted: A Memoir of Anorexia and Bulimia

“The only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.”

Margaret Atwood
“The true story is vicious and multiple and untrue after all. Why do you need it? Don’t ever ask for the true story.”
Margaret Atwood

Sylvia Plath
“If neurotic is wanting two mutually exclusive things at one and the same time, then I'm neurotic as hell. I'll be flying back and forth between one mutually exclusive thing and another for the rest of my days.”
Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar
