We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson
"I might be the only person in the world who thinks this book is too weird, senseless, anticlimactic and almost plotless. The characters however are charismatic in their craziness. It's just not my type of crazy."
The Lotterys Plus One by Emma Donoghue
"I've been ruminating on this one for a couple days, and I gotta tell ya, it's just way too much of a gimmick.

Literally every single alternative lifestyle you can think of is here. Two multicultural couples. Who are of course, best friends, so the..." Read more of this review »

Ink and Ashes by Valynne E. Maetani
"If you like rampant paranoia and wild speculation that all turn out to be correct, you will like Ink and Ashes.

This book also has: stilted writing, the least believable seventeen-year-old I've read in a while, the least believable romantic relatio..." Read more of this review »

This may not be a fantastic book, but it was a good choice for me because I echo many of Rachel's feelings about wanting more friends. The frustrations of finding friends as an adult are numerous, and I appreciated reading about the many approaches s ...more

For me, this was a "should read." If it wasn't a Canadian indigenous work, I wouldn't have stuck it out to the end. The characters felt one-dimensional, in place only to drive the story.

Liane Moriarty
“...truth be told, if she ever had time to think about it, she wasn't sure if she was even that enthusiastic a fan of God anymore. He seemed to have dropped the ball a long time ago.
If God had a supervisor, she would have sent off one of her famous letters of complaint a long time ago. "You have lost me as a customer.”
Liane Moriarty, The Husband's Secret

Liane Moriarty
“You’ve been here before. It won’t kill you. It feels like you can’t breathe, but you actually are breathing. It feels like you’ll never stop crying, but you actually will.”
Liane Moriarty, The Husband's Secret

“It’s all about our egos. She felt she was on the edge of understanding something important. They could fall in love with fresh, new people, or they could have the courage and humility to tear off some essential layer of themselves and reveal to each other a whole new level of otherness, a level far beyond what sort of music they liked. It seemed to her everyone had too much self-protective pride to truly strip down to their souls in front of their long-term partners. It was easier to pretend there was nothing more to know, to fall into an easygoing companionship. It was almost embarrassing to be truly intimate with your spouse; how could you watch someone floss one minute, and the next minute share your deepest passion or most ridiculous, trite little fears? It was almost easier to talk about that sort of thing before you’d shared a bathroom and a bank account and argued over the packing of the dishwasher.”
Liane Moriarty, The Husband's Secret

“All these years there had been a Tupperware container of bad language in her head, and now she opened it and all those crisp, crunchy words were fresh and lovely, ready to be used.”
Liane Moriarty, The Husband's Secret

“Falling in love was easy.anyone could fall. It was holding on that was tricky”
