A Week of Book Club - We Are Never Meeting In Real Life by Samantha Irby

"...but there I was, trying to fit the ocean into a plastic cup as it tossed and turned me in its waves."

"The doughnuts tormented me, nestled so sweetly in their box, but, bitch, I just had a chair collapse underneath me so please pass the fucking watermelon balls."

"I guess what I'm saying is that maybe we could all just mind our own fucking business for once, and that when you can actually see a person's scars, maybe be a pal and don't pick at them."

A Week of Book Club - My Life In France by Julia Child

"Our first lunch together in France had been absolute perfection.  It was the most exciting meal of my life."

"Instead I had married Paul Child, a painter, photographer, poet, and mid-level diplomat who had taken me to live in dirty, dreaded France. I couldn't have been happier!"

"I was thirty seven years old and still  discovering who I was."

"I lit a match and turned on the four burner cuisiniere; the stove made a dramatic pouf! noise when the gas lit, which scared everyone but made me smile."

A Week of Book Club - The Chemist by Stephanie Meyer

"That darkness would not surface easily.  He would compartmentalize it, keep it away from this gentle life, pack it into the dark spaces where it fit."
