“Live your life
Its pain, its pleasure
Leave no path untaken.”

One of my all-time favorite quotes. I read this book every October and I love it and I cry at the end every year. ❤️

Aims42 Read this for the first time this October and loved it! Will definitely be a yearly re-read for me too 👍🏻 1mo

I‘m not sure why I waited so long to read this. It was pretty good and not quite what I expected. But I love a good YA contemporary with a happy ending!

I would be lying if I said I didn‘t cry all the way through this book. Sad, but also redeeming and reflective. I loved it more than I expected to.

Cute and fluffy (and diverse). Everything I wanted in a summer read.

So I have been waiting for this book for more than 10 years. As a loyal TP fan, and as Numair was my first love, I was already inclined to like this book. And i did, but I also feel like there was and is much more to be said. I‘m ready for the next one!

My favorite page so far. "Anchor me. Ground me. Keep me safe and sound. But drag me down--she said--and I will cut you." A good, much needed reminder to let go of the things that drag you down.

I was so excited to read this book. I flew through the first two-thirds of it. And then I crawled tentatively though the rest because I loved it but was sure it would break my heart and tear me to pieces. And it did.

I went in expecting to not like this book. I don't care much for high school drama. But it definitely surprised me. It is well written and ended up being a nice, touching story.

It definitely was a slow start--wading through the computer and game lingo, the technology, and the history. But it is definitely important to the world building and the book gets better and better and the history and technical parts become much more important and interesting. Overall a good read. And listening to it read by Wil Wheaton was just kind of awesome!

tlarocca Wait.... Wil Wheaton does the audio book...... *boots up computer. . 3y
SamaraBear @tlarocca Right?? I saw that I thought "Sold!" 3y

In general, I love Rick Riordan's books. I really liked the first one in this series, but I loved this one! It's snarky and entertaining and I love the characters. Definitely worth the read!

Had to get this pretty edition of Wuthering Heights to go with my lovely edition of Jane Eyre! I love these covers.

BooksTeasAndBookishThings Omg where did you get these??? 4y
SamaraBear @Books, Tea, And Bookish Things I found Jane Eyre at Barnes and Noble and had to search for Wuthering Heights online. They are the Penguin Deluxe Editions, if that helps! 4y
BooksTeasAndBookishThings That does! Thank you!! I hope they have my other 2 favourites to match the Jane Eyre!! =) 4y
BooksTeasAndBookishThings Do you think you could take a picture with the ISBN number on the back of Jane Eyre to give to B&N customer service? They have a LOT of penguin deluxe editions and even putting Jane Eyre with it isn't finding it. 4y
BooksTeasAndBookishThings Tag me in it on a post on here and then when I save it you can delete off your profile? I would VERY much appreciate it! 4y
