“We live in capitalism. Its power seems inescapable. So did the divine right of kings. Any human power can be resisted and changed by human beings. Resistance and change often begin in art, and very often in our art, the art of words.”
Ursula K. Le Guin

And we’re into 2018. I only read 22 books last year, which seems pathetic. Let’s see if this year can be better. I started and finished this book yesterday. The final book in the Binti trilogy, it didn’t disappoint. It was a satisfying ending that de ...more

While I didn’t particularly enjoy this book, you may like it if you enjoy very detailed reflections on war, trauma, and the human condition. Very detailed.

I believe this book is part of a wider world created by Jy Yang, which they’re calling silkpunk. The story and characters were interesting but I would have liked it to be twice as long. Spending more time with the characters would’ve made important ...more

Carrie Fisher writes very messily (because how else could you do it?) about what it’s like to be a woman, to be a young woman, to be a young woman having an affair with a married man. Her writing from when she was 19 is hilarious in how similar it is ...more

Nicole Krauss
“We met each other when we were young, before we knew enough about disappointment, and once we did we found we reminded each other of it.”
Nicole Krauss, The History of Love

Aberjhani
“If I say your voice is an amber waterfall in which I yearn to burn each day, if you eat my mouth like a mystical rose with powers of healing and damnation, If I confess that your body is the only civilization I long to experience… would it mean that we are close to knowing something about love?”
Aberjhani, Visions of a Skylark Dressed in Black

Nisargadatta Maharaj
“It is always the false that makes you suffer, the false desires and fears, the false values and ideas, the false relationships between people. Abandon the false and you are free of pain; truth makes happy, truth liberates.”
Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Anne Sexton
“I am stuffing your mouth with your
promises and watching
you vomit them out upon my face.”
Anne Sexton, The Complete Poems

Margaret Atwood
“A truth should exist,
it should not be used
like this. If I love you

is that a fact or a weapon?”
Margaret Atwood
