The A.I. Who Loved Me by Alyssa Cole
"4 stars

The A.I. Who Loved Me is different than the normal romance books I read, but when I saw it was by Alyssa Cole, I knew I wanted to pick it up. Cole is a new to me author this year and I've fallen in love with her books.

Child of Her Dreams by Sandra Steffen
"OMG These books are keeping me tied to them to the point of no sleep. This one had a twist I DID NOT SEE COMING! Great book! Great ending! "
Ariane and 2 other people liked Saly's review of Child of Her Dreams:
Child of Her Dreams by Sandra Steffen
"I have never read this author before and didn't read the synopsis before going in. This was such an emotionally compelling read and I didn't figure out at first that the secret the hero held was that the heroine was his. I loved seeing the love he..." Read more of this review »
That Darn Cat by Shannon O'Connell
"It isn't as good as Disney's That Darn Cat! but it was a cute, short read.
Lisa was hired to represent a cat no less, in a contested will case. Nathan, an attorney also, represents himself in the case of his aunt's will. The two end of investigatin..." Read more of this review »

It was exciting and fast paced. The descriptions made me feel as if I were right in the middle of the action. I give it three stars because although it was good, it's not the type of book that I love.

The book caught me off guard at first because it is written in the present tense, and it has been a long, long time since I've read anything in present tense. The main characters were okay. There was not one that I loved, but none whom. The ending is ...more

William Shakespeare
“Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And, like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp’d towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on, and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.”
William Shakespeare, The Tempest

Robert Frost
“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.”
Robert Frost

“How lucky I am to have known somebody and something that saying goodbye to is so damned awful.”
Evans G. Valens, The Other Side of the Mountain: The Story of Jill Kinmont

John Donne
Death Be Not Proud

Death, be not proud, though some have called thee
Mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so;
For those, whom thou think'st thou dost overthrow,
Die not, poor Death, nor yet canst thou kill me.
From rest and sleep, which but thy picture[s] be,
Much pleasure, then from thee much more must flow,
And soonest our best men with thee do go,
Rest of their bones, and soul's delivery.
Thou'rt slave to Fate, chance, kings, and desperate men,
And dost with poison, war, and sickness dwell,
And poppy, or charms can make us sleep as well,
And better than thy stroke ; why swell'st thou then?
One short sleep past, we wake eternally,
And Death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die.”
John Donne, The Complete Poetry and Selected Prose

Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field
“Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be.”
J. D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
