Third time reading this and I still love it.

I know there are parts of this story that would be considered a bit of a stretch (such as the ending), but it is, after all, a children's book. It was written for 10-year-olds, and 10-year-olds would get a

The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss
"I loved sinking into this book and getting lost for hours and I reluctantly set it aside to do other things. Necessary things like sleep and go to work. And that’s the highest praise I have for a story.

That said, it ranks in my top 3 books with L..." Read more of this review »

★★★ 1/2 rounding up.

Well this one was pretty cute, I gotta say. It made me chuckle out loud a number of times (maybe not the best thing to do when you're listening to this on audiobook with your headphones on, but what the heck). And it had a fun, gr

Lisa is on page 193 of 316 of Wonder: I keep forgetting how fast of a read this book is!

On another note, I just realized something funny: my husband's a social worker, I'm a teacher, and our son (who will be born in November), is named Jack. And get this: in the book, there is a protagonist named Jack whose parents are a teacher and a social worker. How weird is that?!

“A day without sunshine is like, you know, night.”

Douglas Adams
“The story so far:
In the beginning the Universe was created.
This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Douglas Adams
“There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.

There is another theory which states that this has already happened.”
Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe

Albert Einstein
“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe.”
Albert Einstein

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
