Nenia ✨ Queen of Literary Trash, Protector of Out-of-Print Gems, Khaleesi of Bodice Rippers, Mother of Smut, the Unrepentant, Breaker of Convention ✨ Campbell
Nenia ✨ Queen of Literary Trash, Protector of Out-of-Print Gems, Khaleesi of Bodice Rippers, Mother of Smut, the Unrepentant, Breaker of Convention ✨ Campbell is on page 237 of 358 of The Jewel: This isn't a snarky status update, more like me just marking my place at this point. THE JEWEL is one of those young books that has a good premise but a really scattered world that doesn't make sense (like, is this our world? our a fantasy world? why is there magic? what causes these birth defects?)

It's hard to be too annoyed though because I'm getting Taiwanese for lunch. Good mood? Yaaaassss.

Karen and 12 other people liked Misty's status update
Misty added a status update: I think I should give myself a goal of interacting more on Goodreads, and sharing things here more often, as I've really fallen out of that habit over the last few years... So to that end, here's a look at my favorite reads of last year, in case you're looking for recommendations, or just want to listen to me ramble for a bit. =)
Emily (Obsessed Reader)
Emily (Obsessed Reader) is 5% done with Freeks: "...but the option of a real kiss was almost always better than a night in bed with a book." LOL FALSE.

“Oh my gosh, is that an iPhone?!" Laurel asked, her voice unconsciously rising in pitch and volume.
Tamani looked up at her, his expression blank."Yeah?"
"He has an iPhone," Laurel said to David. "My faerie sentry who generally lives without running water has an iPhone. That's. Just. Great. Everyone in the whole world has a cell phone except me. That's awesome.”
Aprilynne Pike, Illusions

J.R.R. Tolkien
“It was at this point that Bilbo stopped. Going on from there was the bravest thing he ever did. The tremendous things that happened afterward were as nothing compared to it. He fought the real battle in the tunnel alone, before he ever saw the vast danger that lay in wait.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit

“... a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.”
