You, Me, and the Sea by Meg Donohue
"Favorite Quotes:

His stories made it seem as though the past was something I could step into, like a room in the house that was always there, its door unlocked by a combination of words.

This fear did not feel like the sort of thing that came and we..." Read more of this review »

My initial thoughts
Ghachar Ghochar means entangled and the title fits perfectly to the story. Aren’t we all tangled with the chaotic mess that our loved ones are? Even though the book is set in India, I am sure the

Gillian Flynn
“A lot of people lacked that gift: knowing when to fuck off. People love talking, and I have never been a huge talker. I carry on an inner monologue, but the words often don’t reach my lips. She looks nice today, I’d think, but somehow it wouldn’t occur to me to say it out loud. My mom talked, my sister talked. I’d been raised to listen. So, sitting on the couch by myself, not talking, felt decadent.”
Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

Shashi
“Don't grieve for desires that are not fulfilled. Sometimes the things that don't happen keep disasters from happening too”
shashi, Songs of the Mist

Anita Shreve
“I brought pictures to the inn, to show you who I'd been, but I saw at once my mistake, the hurt in your eyes, and you said, It hurts that I wasn't with you.”
Anita Shreve, Where or When

Justin Alcala
“Which is the true nightmare, the horrific dream that you have in your sleep or the dissatisfied reality that awaits you when you awake?”
Justin Alcala

Liane Moriarty
“Her goodness had limits. She could have easily gone her whole life without knowing those limits, but now she knew exactly where they lay.”
Liane Moriarty, The Husband's Secret
