The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

“I guess humans like to watch a little destruction. Sand castles, houses of cards, that's where they begin. " I love this book even as I'm sucked into the throes of its deepest tragedies.

Book Review: Happily Ever After

“Everyone's allowed to be in love with the wrong person at some point. In fact, it's a mistake not to be.” ― Harriet Evans, Happily Ever After Much like hot chocolate on a rainy Sunday afternoon -- which is what the coverpage conjures as an afterthought -- was exactly how the book felt in my hands. This… Continue reading Book Review: Happily Ever After
