Andrew and 1 other person liked Sharon's review of The Secret History:
The Secret History by Donna Tartt
"Tore through this book - wow. Thrilling, yet beautifully written. And frightening, too - especially because the college in the book reminds me so much of my own.

Anyone else notice comparisons to The Magicians?" Read more of this review »

Augusten Burroughs
“Confidence is a reduction of your own interest in whether others are thinking about you and if so, what they're thinking.”
Augusten Burroughs, This Is How: Proven Aid in Overcoming Shyness, Molestation, Fatness, Spinsterhood, Grief, Disease, Lushery, Decrepitude & More. For Young and Old Alike.

Amor Towles
“I know that right choices by definition are the means by which life crystallizes loss.”
Amor Towles, Rules of Civility

Erin Morgenstern
“Secrets have power. And that power diminishes when they are shared, so they are best kept and kept well. Sharing secrets, real secrets, important ones, with even one other person, will change them. Writing them down is worse, because who can tell how many eyes might see them inscribed on paper, no matter how careful you might be with it. So it's really best to keep your secrets when you have them, for their own good, as well as yours.”
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

Eliezer Yudkowsky
“Not every change is an improvement but every improvement is a change; you can't do anything BETTER unless you can manage to do it DIFFERENTLY, you've got to let yourself do better than other people!”
Eliezer Yudkowsky, Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality

Meg Wolitzer
“If someone said 'diametrically,' could 'opposed' be far behind?”
