It took me about a year to read this book. Because I knew when it was over, it was over; I mean, I know there is, in theory, supposed to be a third book, but where is it man? Where is it? *sighs*

So I'd read and just be completely in the book, then pa

Red Rising by Pierce Brown

Probably my favorite novel with a teenage protagonist in a long time. That may be because this one's had to grow up really fast and so is more adult than a lot of adults in other books.

I didn't get on board with the "game" that turned out to be the M

I read the first of these back in the day, and can't remember why. I read Evanovich's main series mainly to steam about the fact that it's so very stagnated.

I find it hilarious that only after reading [Book: Only a Kiss] did I realize I had full-out somehow missed one of the books I'd been waiting for---Flavian's. I've always liked this stuttering, sarcastic dude.

Stephen King
“If you don't have time to read, you don't have the time (or the tools) to write. Simple as that.”
Stephen King

Stephen King
“There are books full of great writing that don't have very good stories. Read sometimes for the story... don't be like the book-snobs who won't do that. Read sometimes for the words--the language. Don't be like the play-it-safers who won't do that. But when you find a book that has both a good story and good words, treasure that book.”
Stephen King

Sue Monk Kidd
“Stories have to be told or they die, and when they die, we can't remember who we are or why we're here.”
Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees

Mark Twain
“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to reform (or pause and reflect).”
Mark Twain

Zhuangzi
“The fish trap exists because of the fish. Once you've gotten the fish you can forget the trap. The rabbit snare exists because of the rabbit. Once you've gotten the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words exist because of meaning. Once you've gotten the meaning, you can forget the words. Where can I find a man who has forgotten words so I can talk with him?”
Zhuangzi
