I enjoyed it enough to finish but found it a little problematic & frustrating in enough areas (world/setting, character development, clichéd character interactions/roles) that I don’t think I’ll continue reading the series.

I really like the world the authors have created in this series, so I have kept with it — but as other reviewers have said, the main character is often pretty irritating/difficult to like/empathize with. Maybe actual young adults will find her less a ...more

Yayoi Kusama
“All of my works are steps on my journey, a struggle for truth that I have waged with pen, canvas, and materials. Overhead is a distant, radiant star, and the more I stretch to reach it, the further it recedes. But by the power of my spirit and my single-hearted pursuit of the path, I have clawed my way through the labyrinthine confusion of the world of people in an unstinting effort to approach even one step closer to the realm of the soul.”
Yayoi Kusama, Infinity Net: The Autobiography of Yayoi Kusama

Jay-Z
“When it comes to signing up new talent, that's what I'm looking for-- not just someone who has the skill, but someone built for this life. Someone who has the work ethic, the drive. The gift that Jordan had wasn't just that he was willing to do the work, but he loved doing it, because he could feel himself getting stronger, ready for anything. He left the game and came back and worked just as hard as he did when he started. He came into the game as Rookie of the Year, and he finished the last playoff game of his career with a shot that won the Bulls their sixth championship. THAT'S THE KIND OF CONSISTENCY THAT YOU CAN ONLY GET BY ADDING DEAD-SERIOUS DISCIPLINE TO WHATEVER TALENT YOU HAVE.”
Jay-Z, Decoded

Jay-Z
“When you step outside of school and have to teach yourself about life, you develop a different relationship to information. I've never been a purely linear thinker. You can see it in my rhymes. My mind is always jumping around, restless, making connections, mixing and matching ideas, rather than marching in a straight line. That's why I'm always stressing focus. My thoughts chase each other from room to room in my head if I let them, so sometimes I have to slow myself down.”
Jay-Z, Decoded

Veronica Roth
“I fell in love with him. But I don't just stay with him by default as if there's no one else available to me. I stay with him because I choose to, every day that I wake up, every day that we fight or lie to each other or disappoint each other. I choose him over and over again, and he chooses me.”
Veronica Roth, Allegiant

Sue Grafton
“Ideas are easy. It's the execution of ideas that really separates the sheep from the goats.”
Sue Grafton
