4.5 stars. Survival stories tend to grip me. There’s something really fascinating, I think, about the idea of ‘‘the survival of the fittest’’ or strongest, smartest, prettiest. It’s a competition. It’s a deadly game. Sometimes, there’s no use even tr ...more

Oh my, oh my, oh my. This was INTENSE. I have no doubt a movie will be produced. Otherwise, BIG MISTAKE because this is something the world needs and I just really want to see a teen movie with a rap battle + romance + family drama + diverse characte ...more

A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer
Rate this book
Clear rating
This is hands down one of the best fairy tale retellings I have ever read. I did not have high expectations at all, having found Brigid Kemmerer’s Letters to the Lost to be a MEH read (please don't curse me!), but this story hooked me right from the ...more

Let me just take a quick second here to say that I finished four novels during the weekend. It feels like I’m binge-reading (so you know it won’t last), because I only recently got back into reading fiction so it’s like my subconscious (and body over ...more

Famous in a Small Town by Emma   Mills

I opened this gorgeous book expecting to smile and laugh at every chapter. Emma Mills always makes me think that, what with her original and feel-good-sounding premises. And her stories do start in a lovely, fun manner. But eventually and slowly, hea ...more

Two Can Keep a Secret
by Karen M. McManus (Goodreads Author)
Rate this book
Clear rating
Overall, I found this much less eye-roll-worthy than ONE OF US IS LYING. The author still is too much in love with stereotypes… I mean, homecoming queens dying? Please. But I felt more engaged somehow with only two narrators, a boy and a girl (Ellery ...more

The Gilded Wolves by Roshani Chokshi
Rate this book
Clear rating
The world is confusing: the more I read, the less I understand. The characters are bland: the more I struggle to picture them, the less invested I am. The premise promises but never before have I wished to chop a premise’s head off as much as right n ...more

Read The Mortal Instruments instead. If you’ve read The Mortal Instruments, try Vampire Academy. If you’ve tried Vampire Academy, dive into Lady Helen. If you’ve dived into Lady Helen, plunge into The Stars Never Rise. If you’ve plunged into The Star ...more

Cassandra Clare
“You're not gay, are you?"
Simon's greenish color deepened. "If I were, I would dress better.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Bones

Michelle Alexander
“The genius of the current caste system, and what most distinguishes it from its predecessors, is that it appears voluntary. People choose to commit crimes, and that's why they are locked up or locked out, we are told. This feature makes the politics of responsibility particularly tempting, as it appears the system can be avoided with good behavior. But herein lies the trap. All people make mistakes. All of us are sinners. All of us are criminals. All of us violate the law at some point in our lives. In fact, if the worst thing you have ever done is speed ten miles over the speed limit on the freeway, you have put yourself and others at more risk of harm than someone smoking marijuana in the privacy of his or her living room. Yet there are people in the United States serving life sentences for first-time drug offenses, something virtually unheard of anywhere else in the world.”
Michelle Alexander, The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness

Cassandra Clare
“Clary- "How to Come Out to Your Parents," she read out loud. "LUKE. Don't be ridiculous. Simon's not gay, he's a vampire.”
Cassandra Clare, City of Ashes

Cassandra Clare
“We're not dating," Alec said again.
"Oh?" Magnus said. "So you're just that friendly with everybody, is that it?”
Cassandra Clare, City of Ashes
