100 SIDEWAYS MILES

by: Andrew Smith

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Pages: 277

Published: September 2, 2014


Finn Easton sees the world through miles instead of minutes. It’s how he makes sense of the world, and how he tries to convince himself that he’s a real boy and not just a character in his father’s bestselling cult-classic book. Finn has two things going for him: his best friend, the

Sarah Maas shared a note and highlight from
Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas
The only thing all the intended disorientation had accomplished was to familiarize her with the building. Idiots.
This line still makes me smile, even so many years after first writing it!. It’s such classic Celaena/Aelin—showing her smarts, her training, but also her sass. One of the things I love most about her is that she’s a survivor, and at this point, she’s just spent a year in one of the worst places imaginable. Yet she still has this spark of humor to her, something that even Endovier couldn’t destroy. So even though this line makes me laugh, it also reminds me of her strength and will to survive against all odds. It’s strange, because even though she’s a character in my head, I still find myself ...more
The Plaything Of The Gods by Tiggie Holliday
"Bad cover aside, the very first sentence is missing a comma ("Wake up sleepy head"); not to mention, it's a run-on, using a comma splice instead of a semi-colon or period.

"Voice" is used twice within the first paragraph.

"Fly" is used FOUR times wit" Read more of this review »

For a MC that is "super smart" and "nerdy," she sure is dense. 100% of the drama in this book was due to either no communication or lack of basic reasoning skills. Hot sex scenes, though. So there's that!

“Hope is a demon. It convinces you to believe in something better, persuades you the outcome will be favorable, and whispers eagerly in your ear that the miracle you so desperately need will happen. Then it crushes you. Hope only leaves you fallen and bleeding in its aftermath, nothing more than a pile of misery and desolation.”
Laura Kreitzer, Forsaken Harbor

“Scared of flying?"

"Nope"

"Heights?"

"Nope"

The plane shook again, and I closed my eyes, trying to take deep breaths.

"What is it then?"

"I have a fear of falling from heights.”
Laura Kreitzer, Shadow of the Sun

“It’s okay. I’m—”
“Fine?” Joseph chimed in. “Obviously not. You need to be checked out by a doctor.”
“I am a doctor.” I rolled my eyes at him, but that didn’t deter him from his train of thought.
“Not that kind of doctor.”
“What is ‘that kind of doctor’ going to say when they see my shimmering pink blood, Joseph?” I changed my voice to mimic one of a concerned doctor. “I’m sorry ma’am, you appear to be suffering from a mild case of Pretty Pretty Princess syndrome. Have you ingested any magical woodland faeries recently?”
Laura Kreitzer

“He holds her with the strength of a million-man army, but with all the tenderness of her heart lying naked in the palms of his hands.”
Laura Kreitzer, Phantom Universe

“I guess I always felt even if the world came to an end, McDonald's would still be open.”
Susan Pfeffer, Life As We Knew It

“What was that?” I croaked.
Akhol sidestepped into my view and towered over us. “It was a Demon.”
“But you said—”
“I know what I said,” Akhol cut in sharply, rubbing his eyes. “There was something wrong with it. Like the Demon
had adapted to the darkness and water.”
I shivered. “Did he have a ring that he called ‘my precious’?” I joked to try and lighten the mood. I didn’t get a good
look at the Demon, but my mind had no problems picturing Gollum.
They stared at me blankly.”
Laura Kreitzer, Abyss
