Interesting. I enjoyed this book - for sure - but it wasn't really what I expected.

I'd heard good things about this back in the day. That and the fact that Wil Wheaton narrated the audiobook definitely put it on my to-read (or, well, to-list

Reread in 2018: I still love this book so much. And after going back to it 6 years later, I definitely feel like I had a new experience with it. Other details stood out to me, other personality aspects made me think and wonder... And yeah. Still love ...more

In my opinion, this was the best of the three so far. Because of the nature of the story (a serial killer very clearly with Robin marked as the next target) there was a true sense of urgency which pressed me to keep listening to the audioboo

This book is weird af. It took me on a journey.

That journey, however, was for a large part based on my liking of it. We didn't get off to a good start. Then the book got weirder, and strangely, I liked it more. And then the dust settled and I

Yeah, this is a classic. And classics and me don't typically get along. I found this to be much like The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. There's magic and nonsense and in part it's charming. But when I compare it to modern-day fantasies and sci-fi, wi

Beast by Lisa Jensen
"I'm one-starring this because I'm mad. Very mad. Let me explain.

This book turned me off very early with a brutal rape scene, so MASSIVE TRIGGER WARNING for that, and it should be in the Goodreads blurb so that any rape survivors know ahead of time..." Read more of this review »

Morgan Matson's books just always take you on a journey. I'm a character reader, and she caters to that in the best way possible. I just always get sucked into the mind and life of her main characters, I have a bunch of fun experiencing the dr

Patrick Ness
“Feelings don't try to kill you, even the painful ones. Anxiety is a feeling grown too large. A feeling grown aggressive and dangerous. You're responsible for its consequences, you're responsible for treating it.'re not responsible for causing it. You're not morally at fault for it. No more than you would be for a tumor.”
Patrick Ness, The Rest of Us Just Live Here

Isabel Bandeira
“I'm supposed to push a loose strand of hair out of your face, then let my hand linger on your cheek, or isn't that how, like, every other kissing scene in those books you read goes?" He gently tucked that piece of hair behind my ear and let his fingers slide down to tilt my chin up until my eyes met his. "Well?”
Isabel Bandeira, Bookishly Ever After

Rachael  Allen
“The Cyrus-Swift Phenomenon. Taylor Swift has had, like, eighteen boyfriends, but everyone still thinks she’s really classy because she’s just so poised and sweet and appropriate-looking. Meanwhile, Miley Cyrus was with the same guy for practically forever, and people are always calling her a slut. And I’m not saying we should be calling T. Swift a slut instead—even if you do date a lot of guys, you don’t deserve that. What I’m saying is, when it comes to popular opinion, it’s all about the persona.”
Rachael Allen, The Revenge Playbook

Becky Albertalli
“Why is straight the default? Everyone should have to declare one way or another, and it shouldn't be this big awkward thing whether you're straight, gay, bi, or whatever. I'm just saying.”
Becky Albertalli, Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda

Renee Ahdieh
“What are you doing to me, you plague of a girl?” he whispered.
“If I’m a plague, then you should keep your distance, unless you plan on being destroyed.” The weapons still in her grasp, she shoved against his chest.
“No.” His hands dropped to her waist. “Destroy me.”
Renee Ahdieh, The Wrath and the Dawn
