Review: Quiet

“Introverts, in contrast, may have strong social skills and enjoy parties and business meetings, but after a while wish they were home in their pajamas. They prefer to devote their social energies to close friends, colleagues, and family. They listen more than they talk, think before they speak, and often feel as if they express themselves better in writing than in conversation. They tend to dislike conflict. Many have a horror of small talk, but enjoy deep discussions.” - Susan Cain

“I have a condition that prompts me to want to know the truth at all times. You can imagine the amount of distress this ailment brings to those of us who could otherwise live so content in a state of blissful ignorance,” - Carlos Ruiz Zafon

Review: Almost Everything

"Almost everyone is screwed up, broken, clingy, scared, and yet designed for joy.

I try not to compare my insides to their outsides, because this makes me much worse than I already am,” Anne Lamott

Review: Gardens of the Moon

"Slowly, Whiskeyjack studied each man in his squad. He saw the caring in their eyes, the open offer to the friendship he'd spent years suppressing. All that time pushing them away, pushing everyone away, and the stubborn bastards just kept on coming back." ~ Steven Erikson, Gardens of the Moon

Review: Skyward

“When this is done, Jerkface, I will hold your tarnished and melted pin up as my trophy as your smoldering ship marks your pyre and the final resting place of your crushed and broken corpse!” ~ Brandon Sanderson, Skyward
