""I would like to believe this is a story I’m telling. I need to believe it. I must believe it. Those who can believe that such stories are only stories have a better chance.

If it’s a story I’m telling, then I have control over the ending. Then there will be an ending, to the story, and real life will come after it. I can pick up where I left off.

It isn't a story I'm telling.""

It has been almost one and a half years since I read this tiny little book, but it has not managed to elude my regular thoughts, and for such a plain, seemingly unimposing novel without any impressive sequences of action, that should probably say mor ...more

Jeff Zentner
“So when I watch trains, it makes me think about how much movement there is in the world. How every train has dozens of cars and every car has hundreds of parts, and all those parts and cars work day after day. And then there are all these other motions. People are born and die. Seasons change. Rivers flow to the sea. Earth circles the sun and the moon circles Earth. Everything whirring and spinning toward something. And I get to be part of it for a little while, the way I get to watch a train for a minute or two, and then it's gone.”
Jeff Zentner, The Serpent King

Anthony Doerr
“I have been feeling very clearheaded lately and what I want to write about today is the sea. It contains so many colors. Silver at dawn, green at noon, dark blue in the evening. Sometimes it looks almost red. Or it will turn the color of old coins. Right now the shadows of clouds are dragging across it, and patches of sunlight are touching down everywhere. White strings of gulls drag over it like beads.

It is my favorite thing, I think, that I have ever seen. Sometimes I catch myself staring at it and forget my duties. It seems big enough to contain everything anyone could ever feel.”
Anthony Doerr, All the Light We Cannot See

Edith Wharton
“...And the way they are now, I don't see's there's much difference between the Fromes up at the farm and the Fromes down in the graveyard; 'cept that down there they're all quiet, and the women have got to hold their tongues.”
Edith Wharton, Ethan Frome

Stephen King
“Like shit, change happens.”
Stephen King, The Bazaar of Bad Dreams

Jeff Zentner
“Nothing makes you feel more naked than someone identifying a desire you never knew you possessed.”
Jeff Zentner, The Serpent King

Description: This list will consist of a personal collection of all the books which I am looking forward to the most, which I am intending to read next or which I generally believe will soon appear on my 'currently reading' shelf. The list will obviously be too extensive to cross everything off within the next few months, but perhaps it might give me (and others) a little inspiration on what to read next. Books I have read since the creation of this list will be crossed out. Still under construction.
