My background is in sociology so I like to weave current issues into popular fiction. I endeavour to keep things as real as possible within a story so as to make it more relatable to readers.(less)

A Month of Reading: September

Throughout the month of September, I read six books. Three of my own, and three that were sent to me for review. Three were five star reads, and three were four star reads. I am holding steady with the quality selections, which is always a reading bonus. This month has been particularly busy. My son had surgery on his knee, he is recovering well, but the damage to his knee was more extensive than

‘He’s like a Heminway novel – aggressively male and not worth the effort.’

What a quote! I just adore it and not in isolation. This entire novel is sublime. Natasha Lester is an author who is so at ease within her own writing, every new novel is just

Ceders in de sneeuw by David Guterson
"Na een mistige nacht wordt de vissersboot van Carl Heine Jr. stuurloos op zee gevonden. Bij nader onderzoek wordt zijn lichaam gevonden in zijn netten onder water. Wat is er gebeurd? Een ongeluk....of moord?

Quotes by Theresa Smith  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“There are some things in life that just are. They are meant to be, and to fight against them is to ensure your own loss.”
Theresa Smith, Somebody I Used to Know

“I loved him. In a completely platonic, best friend, would not even go there if you were the last guy on earth, sort of way.”
Theresa Smith, Somebody I Used to Know

“I felt like an integral part of my being had just been ripped out of me, only to have it replaced with something that did not belong.”
Theresa Smith, Somebody I Used to Know

Topics Mentioning This Author

“You have to walk carefully in the beginning of love; the running across fields into your lover's arms can only come later when you're sure they won't laugh if you trip.”
Jonathan Carroll, Outside the Dog Museum
tags: love

“It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.”
E.E. Cummings

“Everyone has talent. What's rare is the courage to follow it to the dark places where it leads.”
Erica Jong

“I don't think I've ever felt anything other than lonely. "
The saddest part of this was not the words, but the tone he said them with. So matter of fact; as though loneliness was the same as the colour of your hair or having too many freckles. A fact about yourself that could not be permanently altered.”
Theresa Smith

“With great love comes occasions of pain. You can't skip the pain; without it, you would never know what a precious thing love is. You wouldn't know to hang onto it. You wouldn't know to fight for it.
You embrace the pain because the love makes it all worthwhile.”
Theresa Smith
