Delirium | Lauren Oliver

“It‘s so strange how life works: You want something and you wait and wait and feel like it‘s taking forever to come. Then it happens and it‘s over and all you want to do is curl back up in that moment before things changed.”

Thought-provoking, and an easy read. Looking forward to the next book!

“We create art for many reasons - wealth, fame, love, admiration - but I find the one thing that produces the best results is desire. When you want the thing you're creating, the beauty of it will shine through, even if the details aren't all in order. Desire is the fuel of creators, and when we have that, motivation will come in its wake.”

“She‘d always known that her reaction to that night had been too big, or perhaps too small. She hadn‘t even cried. She hadn‘t told anyone. She swallowed it whole and pretended it meant nothing, and therefore it had come to mean everything.”

Carry On, Jeeves | P G Wodehouse

“He floated noiselessly through the doorway like a healing zephyr. That impressed me from the start.... He had a grave, sympathetic face, as if he, too, knew what it was to sup with the lads.”

A decent read. Part mystery, but also a review of what the beloved characters of Pride and Prejudice have been up to since we last saw them. A fun read for any Austen fan. While enjoyable, there were certain parts of the book that would be best titled “The Angst of Mr. Darcy.” His inner turmoil was a bit excessive, in my opinion.

A friend lent this to me, insisting it‘s a must-read. 80 pages in, I‘m intrigued. The author skims over some events, telling rather than showing, but I‘m excited to find out how the story ends.

Frank, honest, and easy to read. I stumbled across Cait Flanders‘ blog several months ago, and really enjoyed her writing style. Her book talks about her one-year spending ban, and all the reasons behind why she did it.

Magnolia Story | Chip Gaines, Joanna Gaines

Halfway through this book, I knew it would be on my bookshelf for a long time to come. The book dances between Chip‘s and Joanna‘s perspectives, telling the story of how they met and what brought them to where they are now. It‘s an easy, delightful read, sprinkled with simple wisdom.
“I always thought that the “thriving” would come when everything was perfect, and what I learned is that it‘s actually down in the mess that things get good.”

An interesting read-though a bit slow in the middle. Some good insights about introverts and extroverts.

YA novel about small town secrets, young love, and Bigfoot. While a slight suspension of disbelief is required, the book made for a speedy and enjoyable read.

Decent. A little predictable... but it did keep me wondering up to the last page. Read it in less than 24 hours.

blurb
KKimber

"Adolescence has always been a means to an end-its point was to aid the transition to adulthood. It was not an end in itself."

"Consumption is not the key to happiness; production is. Meaningful work-that actually serves and benefits a neighbor, thereby making a real difference in the world-contributes to long-term happiness and well-being. Consumption just consumes."

Unfortunately, this was not a winner. I actually stopped reading to look at the cover and verify that John Grisham was the author. The writing felt rushed, and told instead of showed, glossing over entire scenes. The main character didn't seem to give much of a rip about anything.
