Quote of the Day

Out of bed, we're a storm. In bed, we find the eye. The detritus of our world, of our complex and difficult personalities, gets swept up into the various supercells eternally raging around us and vanishes.

Quote of the Day

More than a day after being cooped up with Sidewinder, Zane sat with his hands over his eyes, listening to them argue over dinner. Dinner! They argued over everything!  
“Shut up!” he finally hollered.  
Everyone froze, staring at him in shock.  
“Pizza,” Zane grunted, pointing at Owen. “Order it. Just cheese. Now.”  
The silence lasted a few more seconds. Then without a word, Owen shrugged and took out his phone to search for a pizza place, and the others all dispersed to go do whatever the hell Sidewinder did when they weren’t trying to kill each other. How the hell had these men all lived in one house for years?  
Ty patted Zane on the shoulder as he passed by, giving him a wink. Zane had to just roll his eyes. No fucking wonder the Marines had ousted these yahoos.

Quote of the Day

I didn’t sleep much after that. I was too mad. I’m not even sure who I’m mad at. I just kept thinking about our country and the whole world and how screwed up it is that people don’t do more for each other. I don’t know when humans started only looking out for themselves. Maybe it’s always been this way.

It Ends With Us

Review: Death and Relaxation by Devon Monk

Death and Relaxation (Ordinary Magic #1) by Devon Monk sees a change of pace from Monk's earlier work. The novel is small town, urban fantasy set in Ordinary, Oregon. Delaney Reed is the police chief and it's up to her to keep law and order in Ordinary. Yet the name is very deceptive. Ordinary is anything but ordinary. It's the place where gods go to vacation. The three Reed siblings have a unique ability to meet the requirements of living in this usual town. There's a murder to solve and the Reed sisters are up to the task.

From Goodreads:

Exciting new urban fantasy series by national bestselling author, Devon Monk

Monsters, gods, and mayhem...

Police Chief Delaney Reed can handle the Valkyries, werewolves, gill-men and other paranormal creatures who call the small beach town of Ordinary, Oregon their home. It’s the vacationing gods who keep her up at night.

With the famous rhubarb festival right around the corner, small-town tensions, tempers, and godly tantrums are at an all-time high. The last thing Delaney needs is her ex-boyfriend reappearing just when she's finally caught the attention of Ryder Bailey, the one man she should never love.

No, scratch that. The actual last thing she needs is a dead body washing ashore, especially since the dead body is a god.

Catching a murderer, wrestling a god power, and re-scheduling the apocalypse? Just another day on the job in Ordinary. Falling in love with her childhood friend while trying to keep the secrets of her town secret? That’s gonna take some work.

Spoilers after the jump.

Quote of the Day

“How many lovers?” He could have given her a straight answer. Dozens. Or, more specifically: Thirty-seven. Thirty-seven, if you counted mutual versions of the conduct he’d just engaged in, and Sebastian did. But what he finally said was, “Too many. And not enough.” 
Her face was in shadow. He couldn’t tell if she was disgusted by him, or if this was just a matter of idle curiosity for her. 
She exhaled. “How many would be enough?” 
He smiled sadly. “One more, Violet.” He looked over at her—at her arms folded around herself, at her head, turned from his, as if that would be enough to distract him from the ferocity of his want. “I’ve only ever wanted one more.”

Fangirl Friday : BBC's Coupling

I knew I had a Fangirl post due, but was running low on inspiration. I happened to go through a bunch of old DVDs to find something cheerful to rewatch and came across Coupling. Which is probably one of my favorite TV shows ever, and something I have the happiest memories of watching with my best friend over the years, and after introducing it to my siblings and other friends, more rewatches than most other comedies series I've watched. 

Click through so I can tell you just a few reasons why Coupling is something you should definitely at least TRY watching, especially when you're in the mood for some top notch comedy.

Quote of the Day

If God and Satan got together on a sunny day to create something,
I imagine they would have come up with something similar to the savage perfection that was Lord Tremaine‘s face.
