Human beings had much bigger brains back then than they do today, and so they could be beguiled by mysteries.

Fred and 213 other people liked Wendy Darling's review of Geekerella:
Geekerella by Ashley Poston
"So. Much. Fun.

This super cute Cinderella-goes-to-Geeky-Con story is probably closer to a 3.5 in terms of merit because I think it could have been even better (view spoiler)" Read more of this review »

I enjoyed this brief book. It reminded me a lot of my college days as an English major, hearing a professor hold forth on a poet or theme that had meant a great deal to them. It was also similar to that experience in that I hadn't always read the ite ...more

Fred and 49 other people liked Kelly Hager's review of The Outsider:
The Outsider by Stephen King
"This book is so creepy. Like, relentlessly creepy. And if you thought (like I did) that he couldn't top Brady from the Mr. Mercedes series...well, we both had no idea this was coming down the pike.

On a related note, I was happy to see the connecti..." Read more of this review »
Fred and 1 other person liked Pam Cipkowski's review of The Library Book:
The Library Book by Susan Orlean
"The title of this work is deceptive. At first, I thought it was an ode to the love of books, of which I’ve seen several of lately (a few that were rather good—Pamela Paul’s My Life with Bob comes to mind). Instead, it’s a book about a library—the..." Read more of this review »

I didn't expect this book to make me cry, but that last page got me. I've spent most of my life in libraries, and have never been able to articulate their value and the hopelessly optimistic nature of the enterprise quite this well. Maybe I never eve ...more

Carol Rifka Brunt
“None of those things should have mattered, but I guess they did. I guess they were like water. Soft and harmless until enough time went by. Then all of a sudden you found yourself with the Grand Canyon on your hands.”
Carol Rifka Brunt, Tell the Wolves I'm Home

“What I want from the church, or any faith community, I see now, is a look between human beings that says we are knitted together, standing in a circle, holding each other up, waiting for the next ax to fall, rather than persons following a crowned Jesus, believing in an oppressive creed and tinny, false hope. That "religion" is about wanting the thing to last forever and make the pain go away. The reality is, instead, more about Jesus kneeling in the dust making a paste of spit and dirt. The reality is much more raw.”
Gallagher Nora

Fredrik Backman
“A few years turned into more years, and more years turned into all years. Years have a habit of behaving like that.”
Fredrik Backman, Britt-Marie Was Here

Kate Belle
“When the universe was young, it took a breath, then sighed with a longing so deep, so ancient, that it stole God’s attention for a moment. The sigh brushed God’s cheek and He recognized it as the breath of love. In that moment God wished for another. The yearning had begun.”
Kate Belle, The Yearning

Rebecca Makkai
“By then there had been other men. She'd flung herself at other closed windows. The windows never broke, but her heart, at the end, was in splinters.”
Rebecca Makkai, The Hundred-Year House
