My slice of heaven



2021 BOOKS

"It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone. " -- Rose Kennedy



“We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light. ”  -- Plato



“The life of the dead is set in the memory of the living. ”  -- Marcus Tullius Cicero



“There is a sacredness in tears. They are not a mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition and of unspeakable love. ”  -- Washington Irving



“We all wear masks and the time comes when we cannot remove them without removing our own skin.”  -- André Berthiaume



“I am an invisible man. No I am not a spook like those who haunted Edgar Allen Poe: Nor am I one of your Hollywood movie ectoplasms. I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids - and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, simply because people refuse to see me.”  -- Ralph Ellison



“Without knowledge, life is no more than the shadow of death.”  -- Molière



“Everyone calls himself a friend, but only a fool relies on it: nothing is commoner than the name, nothing rarer than the thing.”  -- Jean de La Fontaine



“Beware, so long as you live, of judging men by their outward appearance.”  -- Jean de La Fontaine


 

Touched (The Marnie Baranuik Files #1) by A.J. Aalto

Touched - A.J. Aalto

Mmm this is a hard one to review I think. I liked it well enough, I just don't like Harry. I don't know perhaps he will redeem himself, but right now he's an ass. I don't think Batten is much better either. But at least I trust him more. And Chapel - he is not my fav either. I don't know what will happen in the next book, but it better damn well make me happier than this round. It was not that I didn't enjoy it, I just think there was an abundance of asses in this book. I don't trust neither Chapel or Harry. I don't get why Chapel did what he did and I certainly didn't get why Harry did it. I think her brother could be a fun edition to the series though, if he sticks around.
