A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole
"Okay so this is a solid 3.5 because like 75-80% of this book is totally delicious and smart and utterly delightful and 15% is questionably silly and about 5% is outright poor writing.

The Man Who Came Uptown by George Pelecanos

This is a book with A MORAL TO TEACH YOU and the characters, dialogue and plot reflect that very clearly. It's a preachy story about second chances, DC history and the power of books poorly disguised as a mystery novel. Pelecanos also really loves th

Alyssa Cole
“It seemed the more he cared for her, the more easily he hurt her. Is that what love was? A finely honed blade that would cut at the slightest pressure?”
Alyssa Cole, An Extraordinary Union

Pearl Cleage
“It is so important to be conscious even when it makes you realize how much negative stuff you have enjoyed all your life until you realized it was all anti you.”
Pearl Cleage, Things I Should Have Told My Daughter: Lies, Lessons, & Love Affairs

Yiyun Li
“Who among us dares to assert that our memories are not tainted by time, sweetest poison and bitterest antidote, untrustworthy ally, and reliable annihilator?”
Yiyun Li, Dear Friend, from My Life I Write to You in Your Life

Yiyun Li
“Once in a while I get an email from someone I have met briefly. "You may not remember me," these emails often begin, the hope to be remembered expressed by the acceptance of having already been forgotten.”
Yiyun Li, Dear Friend, from My Life I Write to You in Your Life

Taylor Jenkins Reid
“Isn’t it awfully convenient,” Harry added, “that when men make the rules, the one thing that’s looked down on the most is the one thing that would bear them the greatest threat? Imagine if every single woman on the planet wanted something in exchange when she gave up her body. You’d all be ruling the place. An armed populace. Only men like me would stand a chance against you. And that’s the last thing those assholes want, a world run by people like you and me.”
Taylor Jenkins Reid, The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
