I used to think I didn't enjoy historical fiction, but it turns out I was just reading the wrong ones. I loved this story of the Sutherland sisters, even though I didn't realize until about halfway through that they were real people. It just made it ...more

I am a huge fan of dirty books, so a novel centered around dirty books is pretty much my dream. I loved this one. (A note on the audio version: The narrator sounds much too proper for the book's content.) While the whole story is told from one charac ...more

First off, I listened to the digital audiobook version of this title, read by the author herself, which was fabulous. It’s actually my first audiobook ever, and I think I picked a pretty good one.

Fair warning: I loved this book. There will be no crit

I thought I was over dystopian novels, but it turns out they can still be done in an original way. I adore this book. Set in a future where corporations that genetically modify crops have taken over, Tempest has to decide if the company she works for ...more

I am not typically a reader of military fiction. I don’t know that I would have picked this book up had it not been for an invitation to dinner with the author. It is now my personal mission to get it in the hands of everyone. This is absolutely a bo ...more

Madeleine L'Engle
“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
Madeleine L'Engle

John Berger
“When we read a story, we inhabit it. The covers of the book are like a roof and four walls. What is to happen next will take place within the four walls of the story. And this is possible because the story's voice makes everything its own.”
John Berger, Keeping a Rendezvous

Elie Wiesel
“The opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it's indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it's indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it's indifference.”
Elie Wiesel

Henri J.M. Nouwen
“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion, who can stay with us in an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.”
Henri J.M. Nouwen, Out of Solitude: Three Meditations on the Christian Life

Robert Fulghum
“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.”
Robert Fulghum, All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten: Uncommon Thoughts On Common Things
