The science parts were geeky fun but it was a poor choice on the author's part to write a female lead character who basically seemed like the guy from The Martian as a 15 yr old boy stuffed into the body of a 20-something woman with no tact or maturi ...more

Artemis by Andy Weir
"1 1/2 stars. I really wish I could say I liked this. A couple of years back, I gave in to the hype and read Weir's The Martian, and I have to say-- I loved it. The scary scenario of being stranded so far away from everything and everyone you know,..." Read more of this review »

Joel Osteen
“You must make a decision that you are going to move on. It wont happen automatically. You will have to rise up and say, ‘I don’t care how hard this is, I don’t care how disappointed I am, I’m not going to let this get the best of me. I’m moving on with my life.”
Joel Osteen, Your Best Life Now: 7 Steps to Living at Your Full Potential

Henry David Thoreau
“If we will be quiet and ready enough, we shall find compensation in every disappointment.”
Henry David Thoreau, I to Myself: An Annotated Selection from the Journal of Henry D. Thoreau

Deb Caletti
“It was one of those times you feel a sense of loss, even though you didn't have something in the first place. I guess that's what disappointment is- a sense of loss for something you never had.”
Deb Caletti, The Nature of Jade

Sarah Dessen
“There are some things in this world you rely on, like a sure bet. And when they let you down, shifting from where you've carefully placed them, it shakes your faith, right where you stand.”
Sarah Dessen, Someone Like You

Jodi Picoult
“Let me tell you this: if you meet a loner, no matter what they tell you, it's not because they enjoy solitude. It's because they have tried to blend into the world before, and people continue to disappoint them.”
Jodi Picoult, My Sister's Keeper
