It breaks my heart that I wasn't a fan of this book -- I know many others love this but for me, it was just 'ok'.
But I recognise that this book wasn't really written for me; many others have connected with this book. Despite my rating, I encourage y

I don't often share thoughts about a book before reading it, but here, I'll make an exception.

I can't wait to read this book. It's one of my most anticipated reads ever.

My parents survived the race riots in 1969, and May 13th has left a deep and tra

It has all the reasons why I adore urban fantasy.

The Midnight Star by Marie Lu

This was... anticlimactic.
Which is so disappointing to me because I adored The Rose Society.

- This felt like one long and tedious wrap-up. Whilst I appreciate that that's the point for series finales, this book had no distinct plot, no momentum, an

This book reminded me of teen-me... and not the happy lovely parts (though this book is indeed lovely and ultimately happy) but about my insecurities, doubts, and thoughts about life and growing up. And I needed to read this because I felt like I rec ...more

Front Desk is a book that means a lot to me.
More importantly, I believe that Front Desk will be a book that will mean a lot to others - immigrants of all ages, children, adults, parents.

Upton Sinclair
“It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.”
Upton Sinclair, I, Candidate for Governor: And How I Got Licked

Alan Moore
“Happiness is the most insidious prison of all.”
Alan Moore, V for Vendetta

Haruki Murakami
“Sometimes when I look at you, I feel I'm gazing at a distant star.
It's dazzling, but the light is from tens of thousands of years ago.
Maybe the star doesn't even exist any more. Yet sometimes that light seems more real to me than anything.”
Haruki Murakami, South of the Border, West of the Sun

Haruki Murakami
“In the midst of this overwhelming sunset, the image of Hatsumi flashed into my mind, and in that moment I understood what that tremor of the heart had been. It was a kind of childhood longing that had always remained—and would forever remain—unfulfilled. I had forgotten the existence of such innocent, all-but-seared-in longing: forgotten for years to remember what such feelings had ever existed inside of me. What Hatsumi had stirred in me was a part of my very self that had long lain dormant. And when the realization struck me, it aroused such sorrow I almost burst into tears. She had been an absolutely special woman. Someone should have done something—anything—to save her.”
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

Jane Goodall
“The greatest danger to our future is apathy.”
