I wanted something light and effortless that could hold my attention. This was it.

The audio-version is hampered by a lack of differentiation between the characters (esp. the four friends at the center of this story), but I think the book may be hamp

Runaways by Christopher Golden

I was suckered into reading this through a misunderstanding (I somehow thought Rainbow Rowell was the author - but, spoilers, she's not). Regardless, it was light and fast and fun - sort of the equivalent of watching a Marvel movie, but reading it in ...more

"He's the general article, Reyes. He has been all along. He is still held fast in the formless stone, but he's closer to God right now than I have ever been in my life. And I don't even have the courage to envy him." -Vincenzo Giuliani in The Sparrow ...more

"I have given myself over to questions: large, hard, loving, full-blooded questions."

Oscar Wilde
“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”
Oscar Wilde

Virginia Woolf
“No need to hurry. No need to sparkle. No need to be anybody but oneself.”
Virginia Woolf, A Room of One's Own / Three Guineas

Virginia Woolf
“For it would seem - her case proved it - that we write, not with the fingers, but with the whole person. The nerve which controls the pen winds itself about every fibre of our being, threads the heart, pierces the liver.”
Virginia Woolf, Orlando

Virginia Woolf
“I can only note that the past is beautiful because one never realises an emotion at the time. It expands later, and thus we don't have complete emotions about the present, only about the past.”
Virginia Woolf

Jane Austen
“The person, be it gentleman or lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid.”
Jane Austen, Northanger Abbey
