Fatal Throne by Candace Fleming
"I am impressed. The title of this work makes it sound trashier and gushier than it is. Even though it’s no "Wolf Hall," the writing in "Fatal Throne" is strong and sophisticated, albeit not uniformly so. This book is assembled of 8 perspectives (H..." Read more of this review »

Jeffrey Eugenides
“We felt the imprisonment of being a girl, the way it made your mind active and dreamy, and how you ended up knowing which colors went together. We knew that the girls were our twins, that we all existed in space like animals with identical skins, and that they knew everything about us though we couldn’t fathom them at all. We knew, finally, that the girls were really women in disguise, that they understood love and even death, and that our job was merely to create the noise that seemed to fascinate them.”
Jeffrey Eugenides, The Virgin Suicides

Dale Carnegie
“When dealing with people, let us remember we are not dealing with creatures of logic. We are dealing with creatures of emotion, creatures bristling with prejudices and motivated by pride and vanity.”
Dale Carnegie, How to Win Friends and Influence People

“Time heals all wounds. And if it doesn't, you name them something other than wounds and agree to let them stay.”
Emma Forrest, Your Voice in My Head

Kazuo Ishiguro
“You're always in a rush, or else you're too exhausted to have a proper conversation. Soon enough, the long hours, the traveling, the broken sleep have all crept into your being and become part of you, so everyone can see it, in your posture, your gaze, the way you move and talk.”
Kazuo Ishiguro, Never Let Me Go

Kazuo Ishiguro
“All children have to be deceived if they are to grow up without trauma.”
