"EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING. I hated the twist when I first heard about it. Reading about the book again now, during a pandemic...I hate it even more. "There's more to life than just surviving" is the kind of attitude that anti-lockdowners, anti-maskers, anti-vaxxers have. Which may be OK for someone like Maddy whose immunodeficiency can't be transmitted...but it's the same attitude killing people with COVID-19." Jan 29, 2021 06:02AM

"Since I'm reading something else (Kelley Armstrong's OTHERWORLD SECRETS, but it's an anthology and I'm skipping over the stories I've already read, so I'm not bothering to officially list it on Goodreads), I'll likely return this to the library without finishing it. It's long (608 pages) and heavy (hardcover), and I just need something fictional right now. Marking the page number here in case I re-borrow it later." Apr 07, 2019 08:00PM

Stacia Kane
“Readers have the right to say whatever the fuck they want about a book. Period. They have that right. If they hate the book because the MC says the word “delicious” and the reader believes it’s the Devil’s word and only evil people use it, they can shout from the rooftops “This book is shit and don’t read it” if they want. If they want to write a review entirely about how much they hate the cover, they can if they want. If they want to make their review all about how their dog Foot Foot especially loved to pee on that particular book, they can."

[Blog entry, January 9, 2012]”

Michel de Montaigne
“We need very strong ears to hear ourselves judged frankly, and because there are few who can endure frank criticism without being stung by it, those who venture to criticize us perform a remarkable act of friendship, for to undertake to wound or offend a man for his own good is to have a healthy love for him.”
Michel de Montaigne

John Scalzi
“1. Everyone is entitled to their opinion about the things they read (or watch, or listen to, or taste, or whatever). They’re also entitled to express them online.

2. Sometimes those opinions will be ones you don’t like.

3. Sometimes those opinions won’t be very nice.

4. The people expressing those may be (but are not always) assholes.

5. However, if your solution to this “problem” is to vex, annoy, threaten or harrass them, you are almost certainly a bigger asshole.

6. You may also be twelve.

7. You are not responsible for anyone else’s actions or karma, but you are responsible for your own.

8. So leave them alone and go about your own life."

[Bad Reviews: I Can Handle Them, and So Should You (Blog post, July 17, 2012)]”

“No one could tell me not to eat an entire cake—not my mom, not Santa, not God—no one. It was my cake and everyone else could go fuck themselves.”
Allie Brosh, Hyperbole and a Half

“It takes forty muscles to frown, and only twelve to jam a cupcake in your mouth and get over it.”
Sarah Ockler, Bittersweet
