Bad Habits by Amy Gentry
Bad Habits
by Amy Gentry (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
Holy cats, I loved Amy Gentry's latest thriller, Bad Habits. The story of a toxic friendship in a venomous grad school program, Bad Habits is a rollicking, smart, twisted novel that smolders with fury until its final pyrotechnic conflagration.

I can't believe that I'm not seeing more about Maria Adelmann's How to Be Eaten because it is a goddam delight. This novel interweaves stories by five (or arguably six) narrators who are based on well-known fairytales, updated to reflect contemporary ...more

If you think late-stage capitalism is broken, boy howdy, do I have a book for you. The Cult of We is the story of the meteoric rise and noisy fall of WeWork, the late 2010 startup that infested first Manhattan and then the world like a growing noxiou ...more

Full disclosure: Mat Johnson chatted with me on the release of my debut novel, and we're friends.

I really enjoyed Invisible Things. Its pacing was excellent, and it had a wide cast of characters that felt both familiar and new. Most of all, it's powe

When people say that we're not living through Handmaid's Tale, we are living through Parable of the Sower, they are not wrong.

Octavia Butler's first installment of her post-apocalyptic Earthseed trilogy is a gripping, taut, surprisingly tender read.

The Debt to Pleasure by John Lanchester
Rate this book
Clear rating
Dense, vertiginous, deeply researched, slyly funny, absurdly pompous, and gleefully wicked, The Debt to Pleasure is the best little crime novel that no one talks about. This is both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, John Lanchester’s Debt to P ...more

Quotes by Chelsea G. Summers  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Female psychopaths, researchers eventually realized, don't present like the males. To which I respond: No shit. We women have an emotional wiliness that shellacs us in glossy patina of caring. We have been raised to take interest in promoting healthy interior lives of other humans; preparation, I suppose, for taking on the emotional labor of motherhood - or marriage; either way, really. Few women come into maturity unscathed by the suffocating pink press of girlhood, and even psychopaths are touched by the long, frilly arm of feminine expectations. It's not that women psychopaths don't exist; it's that we fake it better than men.”
Chelsea G. Summers, A Certain Hunger

“You who call women the fairer sex, you may repress and deny all you want, but some of us were born with a howling void where our souls should sway”
Chelsea G. Summers, A Certain Hunger

“We talk about love like it's an involuntary act. We fall into love, like a hole, a puddle, an elevator shaft. We never step mindfully into love. Love we seem to think, requires a loss of control; love necessitates that vertiginous giving over to gravity; love wants you to have no choice.”
Chelsea G. Summers, A Certain Hunger

“and it is hard to let go, to imagine alternatives, but you are bold with unknowing, you are ready to explore.”
Terra Elan McVoy, After the Kiss

“The greatest part of a writer's time is spent in reading, in order to write: a man will turn over half a library to make one book.”
Samuel Johnson, The Life of Samuel Johnson LL.D. Vol 2
