Red Sparrow was one of the densest books I have read in a long time.

Now, I LOVE myself a good spy novel, and I am fully aware that the form that most of these are written in, at least the passible works, have to be lengthy and wordy, and seem to do

This was the surprise book of the first part of 2019 for me. I bought it off the shelves at Barnes because the cover caught my eye and then I saw that the author was independent, and every independent author knows how incredibly hard it is to get put ...more

This icy thriller is classic James Rollins. There is a ton to like about this book, but a few gripes as well.

To start with, the first half of the book intensely more entertaining than the second half. I think this has alot to do with Rollins setting

Mars by Ben Bova

Another solid entry in the near future series Bova has going on.

Mars is like his other works in this series, the prose is short and simple. It really feels like he just outlined the entire story one day and then filled in the details as he wrote eac

Standard Stephen King, but absolutely nothing incredible.

Honestly, the only really good part was the hook. A guy is arrested for a heinous murder with incontributable evidence that he is indeed guilty, but the guy also has an airtight alibi.

He does

Jessica Park
“It’s smart to end relationships that are poisonous. It’s a good thing. Sometimes you have to cut people out of your life to make things better. So you can move forward.”
Jessica Park, Left Drowning

Amy Harmon
“I will spend the rest of my life trying to make you happy, and when you get tired of looking at me, I promise I’ll sing.”
Amy Harmon, Making Faces

“It's easy to forgive someone for the hurt they've caused you. Forgetting is impossible.”
Tara Sivec, Watch over Me
tags: hurt

Amy Harmon
“True beauty, the kind that doesn't fade or wash off, takes time. It takes incredible endurance. It is the slow drip that creates the stalactite, the shaking of the Earth that creates mountains, the constant pounding of the waves that breaks up the rocks and smooths the rough edges. And from the violence, the furor, the raging of the winds, the roaring of the waters, something better emerges, something that would have otherwise never existed.
And so we endure. We have faith that there is purpose. We hope for things we can't see. We believe there are lessons in loss, power in love, and that we have within us the potential for a beauty so magnificent, our bodies can't contain it.”
Amy Harmon, Making Faces
