Pride and Prejudice is probably my most re-read book. I know it (and the mini-series/movies) pretty well. However, I never dove into any of the fan fiction or 'Death Comes to Pemberley' stuff, though I did enjoy P&P&Zombies for a laugh. I pre ...more

This book was gifted to me as a housewarming gift and also because I have a young daughter. I love Adichie's writing, and this does not disappoint. She writes warmly to her friend who asked "How do I raise my daughter feminist?" The book is very shor ...more

It's been a thrilling ride in Atwood's trilogy. I'll admit that there were curious parts of this book that took me out of it at certain points-- ((view spoiler) ...more

Jane Austen
“In vain have I struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you.”
Jane Austen, Pride And Prejudice

Jenny Hollowell
“Birdie is silent. She is tired of soon. Soon is round and smooth, without never’s honest jagged edges. Soon is like the End of the World, always approaching but never arriving. Soon is the excuse people use when nothing ever happens on time.”
Jenny Hollowell, Everything Lovely, Effortless, Safe

Ron Butlin
“It used to be that each time you fell in love, the effort of loving released in you the energy to hold everything together a little longer. Then, after several months or years, when things began to crack apart again, you would fall in love with someone else. New energy would be released, and for a time you and your world would be safe once more.

By now, however, you have exhausted that. There seems to be no energy left - if you had discovered alcohol earlier it might have saved a few broken hearts. For you, alcohol is not the problem - it's the solution: dissolving all the separate parts into one. A universal solvent. An ocean.”
Ron Butlin, The Sound of My Voice

Joan Didion
“He ran his fingers over the moist ends of her hair and across her face. Her eyes were wet. Jesus Christ. How many nights had he heard Lily crying. As some parents sleep through fire, thunderstorms, and voices at the back door only to wake at a child’s whisper, so Everett heard Lily crying at night. Her muffled sobs seemed to have broken his dreams for years. He had heard her even at Fort Lewis, even in Georgia, finally at Bliss. That was Lily crying in the wings whenever the priest came to tear up his mother’s grave. Lily cried in the twilight field where he picked wild poppies with Martha; Lily’s was the cry he heard those nights the kiln burned, the levee broke, the ranch went to nothing.”
Joan Didion, Run River

Margaret Atwood
“Romance takes place in the middle distance. Romance is looking in at yourself through a window clouded with dew. Romance means leaving things out: where life grunts and shuffles, romance only sighs.”
Margaret Atwood
