Outline by Rachel Cusk
"Damn you, Rachel Cusk. This book was absolutely infuriating. As I was reading it, I kept telling myself that I hated it. And so, I burned through it in a a little more than 24 hours. It bears little resemblance to any other novel I've ever read. T..." Read more of this review »

Finally! I love a story that makes me forget I'm engaged in the activity of reading. This book is good fun and hits a sweet spot between light and dark. I can see now what all the hype was about. I'm motivated to read the rest of the series and watch ...more

The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning by Margareta Magnusson
"Right. Well, first of all, you can't make available a galley of a book on my favorite guilty-pleasure topic (decluttering), call it "The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning" and expect me NOT to download it.

Secondly - would someone please call t..." Read more of this review »
Health at Every Size by Linda Bacon
"
First I want to say that this book is a must-read for anyone who is overweight and has ever wished they were thinner. Even if I felt the book was flawed in a few ways, I think it's still incredibly valuable.There's a whole movement started by the..." Read more of this review »

Suzanne Collins
“For there to be betrayal, there would have to have been trust first.”
Suzanne Collins, The Hunger Games

Jean Vanier
“Community as belonging . . .

Each person with his or her history of being accepted or rejected, with his or her past history of inner pain and difficulties in relationships with parents, is different. But in each one there is a yearning for communion and belonging, but at the same time a fear of it. Love is what we want, yet it is what we fear the most. Love makes us vulnerable and open, but then we can be hurt through rejection and separation. We may crave for love, but then be frightened of losing our liberty and creativity. We want to belong to a group, but we fear a certain death in the group because we may not be seen as unique. We want love, but fear the dependence and commitment it implies; we fear being used, manipulated, smothered and spoiled. We are all so ambivalent toward love, communion and belonging.”
Jean Vanier, Community And Growth

Jerrod Edson
“Joan Finch is tall and sickly thin. She is wearing a tight black dress that accentuates her bony legs, the crookedness of her body. She looks like a burnt matchstick.”
Jerrod Edson, A Place Of Pretty Flowers

Clarissa Pinkola Estés
“There is a time in our lives, usually in mid-life, when a woman has to make a decision - possibly the most important psychic decision of her future life - and that is, whether to be bitter or not. Women often come to this in their late thirties or early forties. They are at the point where they are full up to their ears with everything and they've "had it" and "the last straw has broken the camel's back" and they're "pissed off and pooped out." Their dreams of their twenties may be lying in a crumple. There may be broken hearts, broken marriages, broken promises.”
Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves: Myths and Stories of the Wild Woman Archetype

Alan Rickman
“Those of you who are not aware of my brilliant career as a stand up comic, I'm not aware of it either so we might well wonder what we're doing here.”
Alan Rickman
