Washington by Ron Chernow

I basically read this as an experiment to see if I thought I could get through Chernow's Hamilton book which is twice as long. I don't usually do a lot of biographical reading, but I enjoyed this look at Washington. I learned so many things, which is ...more

Recommended to me by my Youth Librarian. It's about a young boy who's mind has been fused with that of an alien. He has suffered loss, body deformity and bullying at school. But he's a sweetie. The book is a count down to the possibly life- ending ac ...more

This was an interesting story about a girl who lives in a haunted house... like it's haunted by more than just her (she's dead) and she's on a mission to figure out where the bad mojo is coming from. It was fun and a little gruesome. A favorite combo ...more

I bought this book because of the pretty colors and the word bookstore in the title. I enjoyed the story, in general, and the main character. I think I wasn't expecting the mystery part.

Also, I was SUPER annoyed by every man in this book. It could re

Leigh Bardugo
“I would have come for you. And if I couldn't walk, I'd crawl to you, and no matter how broken we were, we'd fight our way out together-knives drawn, pistols blazing. Because that's what we do. We never stop fighting.”
Leigh Bardugo, Crooked Kingdom

Julian Barnes
“It strikes me that this may be one of the differences between youth and age: when we are young, we invent different futures for ourselves; when we are old, we invent different pasts for others.”
Julian Barnes, The Sense of an Ending

N.K. Jemisin
“Tell them they can be great someday, like us. Tell them they belong among us, no matter how we treat them. Tell them they must earn the respect which everyone else receives by default. Them them there is a standard for acceptance; that standard is simply perfection. Kill those who scoff at those contradictions, and tell the rest that the dead deserved annihilation for their weakness and doubt. Then they'll break themselves trying for what they'll never achieve”
N.K. Jemisin, The Fifth Season

Gregory Maguire
“People who claim that they’re evil are usually no worse than the rest of us.” He sighed. “It’s people who claim that they’re good, or anyway better than the rest of us, that you have to be wary of.”
Gregory Maguire, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West

N.K. Jemisin
“For all those that have to fight for the respect that everyone else is given without question.”
N.K. Jemisin, The Fifth Season
