DNF. I’ve read 4 chapters out of 28 and I just can’t stand it anymore. From the book’s description I was expecting an insightful spy thriller. What I got was a Victim’s account of all the bad experiences in her life where she was victimized by her fa ...more

The construction of the book is beautiful. I love the cover. I love the colors, the embossing, the typeset, everything on the cover. I love that it’s got a ribbon bookmark. Unfortunately the inside art appears to be comprised of clip art.

Let's Bring Back by Lesley M.M. Blume
"Cute idea, but I use a good number of these words included. It's scarcely the "Lost Language" edition if many of the words are still familiar."
Let's Bring Back by Lesley M.M. Blume
"If you were a child of the 90s, most of these words you heard on Nickelodeon, repeats of Looney Tunes and old shows on Nick At Nite. I feel like this is a case of the author underestimating her audience.

Oscar Wilde
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde

“Lovely One, if you dare to dream, you must be brave enough to fight.”
Lisa Bevere, Girls with Swords: How to Carry Your Cross Like a Hero

Niccolò Machiavelli

“There is no other way to guard yourself against flattery than by making men understand that telling you the truth will not offend you.”
Machiavelli Niccolo, The Prince

Peter Tremayne
“Two centuries ago, a New Faith came to this land. Many found it an alien creed. Others merged it in with the old ideas and values. But in that interval, between the decaying and disappearance of the Old Faith and the formation and establishment of the New Faith, there was always a period of danger. Some people would become uncertain; others confused or even frightened. Emerging on both sides, there could be a wild fanaticism as each tried to protect their own beliefs. Unfortunately, claiming one deity as an ally for partisan values leads to the worst fanaticism of all. It is a step towards barbarism which destroys our humanity.”
Peter Tremayne, The Second Death
