"I wish this were more explicitly pro-Palestine; while I'm not saying that the Palestinians have never done anything wrong, I'm also bothered by portrayals of the conflict that try to posit the Palestinians and Israelis as equals in the situation. That said, this still looks potentially interesting." Mar 19, 2019 11:23AM

"An interesting, mostly well-written and very readable history of diplomacy. Not sure that this book is going to be essential for anyone in particular, but it's alright." Feb 13, 2019 11:18AM

Mike is 50% done with Gratuitous Epilogue: I wonder if Host might be missing her calling as an author of fluffy MG books, because as far as wish-fulfillment goes, this is actually fairly effective.

John Green
“These are all direct quotes, except every time they use a curse word, I'm going to use the name of a famous American poet:

'You Walt Whitman-ing, Edna St. Vincent Millay! Go Emily Dickinson your mom!'

'Thanks for the advice, you pathetic piece of E.E. Cummings, but I think I'm gonna pass.'

'You Robert Frost-ing Nikki Giovanni! Get a life, nerd. You're a virgin.'

'Hey bro, you need to go outside and get some fresh air into you. Or a girlfriend.'

I need to get a girlfriend into me? I think that shows a fundamental lack of comprehension about how babies are made.”
John Green

Malinda Lo
“Julian was always trying to convince her that E.T. had already visited Earth multiple times. One night in Dolores Park, while they were hanging out on the swings in the playground, Julian told her about meeting an alien abductee in Golden Gate Park the weekend before.
"He had an implant in his lower back - he totally showed me the scar and everything," Julian said [...].
"Yeah, I'm sure that's what he was showing you."[...]
"You're just jealous you didn't get to see his ass.”
Malinda Lo, Adaptation

Michael  Grant
“I don’t care what your excuse is, I don’t care what you think God told you to do, if you are in the business of closing children’s minds and obliterating their capacity to imagine, and depriving them of a capacity to laugh, then you are a criminal. Maybe not under the law, but under any decent system of morality.

Shame on anyone who brainwashes a child and attacks their individual liberty and deprives them of the freedom that is the very definition of a human being. Shame.”
Michael Grant

“I am an inexhaustible source of awkwardness.”
Milena Veen, Just Like a Musical

Malinda Lo
“Kissing Amber was like falling into the sea: Her body surrendered to the pull of the tide, buoyed by the saltwater, every breath tasting like the ocean. Reese lost all sense of where the surface was. All there was, was this. Amber’s lips, her tongue, her hands stroking back Reese’s hair, curling around her head and holding her steady. If their first kiss had been a bit awkward, that was gone now.”
Malinda Lo, Adaptation
