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


Poltergeist (Greywalker, #2) by Kat Richardson

Poltergeist - Kat Richardson

I upped the rating by 0,5 this time around. It has been some time since I last read it and though it still bothered me at some points, it also kept me curious about the Grey, the plot and the characters. I really like Carlos, although that may change in the later books, but for now I like the badness factor he throws around him. I hope he and Harper will become friends down the road. Quinton was awesome. One of my favorites so far. 

I was not charmed at all by Brian and found the scenes with him annoying. I liked Mara a bit better, but Ben, well he gives me a mental image of a confused white haired pot bellied professor well due his prime. Ofc that may also change with him hopefully gaining more facts and less theory. Oh and Will - I'll happily pave the way for Carlos to eat him. I hope he gets lost soon.
