The Horrid Glory of Its Wings by Elizabeth Bear
"

jess was right, this is an amazing story.

“Mama Alice would say that God never gives us any burdens we can’t carry.”

The harpy says, Does she look you in the eye when she says that?

The Stand Omnibus by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa
" I waited until the graphic novel series was finished to read it. I prefer to read a series like this when it is complete - binge reading if you like. Not a big one on comic adaptations of classic novels. I find that I prefer what my imagination d..." Read more of this review »

We teach girls to shrink themselves, to make themselves smaller. We say to girls, you can have ambition, but not too much. You should aim to be successful, but not too successful. Otherwise, you would threaten the man. Because I am female, I am expected to aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my life choices always keeping in mind that marriage is the most important. Now marriage can be a source of joy and love and mutual support but why do we teach girls to aspire to marriage and we don’t teach boys the same? We raise girls to see each other as competitors not for jobs or accomplishments, which I think can be a good thing, but for the attention of men. We teach girls that they cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys are.Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

Haven't decided on this one yet. The art is not exactly my style, although the color palette is beyond gorgeous, and the storyline is still pretty confusing, probably still in the set-up. But it's good enough to keep reading, if it keeps running.

Read this the other day in memory of James Garner, because this series always reminds me of Rockford. Vol. 2 really scratched that itch. I can't wait for more.
Glamour in Glass by Mary Robinette Kowal
"An excellent follow-up to Shades of Milk & Honey. It's fun to see how Kowal extends Austen into newlywed territory, something that usually happens after the curtain draws. I'm also enjoying watching Jane's growth as she's exposed to new ideas..." Read more of this review »
The Cormorant by Chuck Wendig
"I believe it is impossible for Chuck Wendig to write a bad book. His prose, characters, and story will drive anyone crazy after reading the first page. Not to mention the fact he still finds the time to provide his readers with the most insightful..." Read more of this review »

Terry Pratchett
“There are, it has been said, two types of people in the world. There are those who, when presented with a glass that is exactly half full, say: this glass is half full. And then there are those who say: this glass is half empty.

The world belongs, however, to those who can look at the glass and say: What's up with this glass? Excuse me? Excuse me? This is my glass? I don't think so. My glass was full! And it was a bigger glass! Who's been pinching my beer?”
Terry Pratchett

Terry Pratchett
“There is a rumour going around that I have found God. I think this is unlikely because I have enough difficulty finding my keys, and there is empirical evidence that they exist.”
Terry Pratchett

George R.R. Martin
“I am not going to get into it myself, except to say
(1) if I am writing "boy fiction," who are all those boys with breasts who keep turning up by the hundreds at my signings and readings?
and
(2) thank you, geek girls! I love you all.”
George R.R. Martin

George Carlin
“Religion has convinced people that there's an invisible man ... living in the sky. Who watches everything you do every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a list of ten specific things he doesn't want you to do. And if you do any of these things, he will send you to a special place, of burning and fire and smoke and torture and anguish for you to live forever, and suffer, and suffer, and burn, and scream, until the end of time. But he loves you. He loves you. He loves you and he needs money.”
George Carlin

Stacia Kane
“Readers have the right to say whatever the fuck they want about a book. Period. They have that right. If they hate the book because the MC says the word “delicious” and the reader believes it’s the Devil’s word and only evil people use it, they can shout from the rooftops “This book is shit and don’t read it” if they want. If they want to write a review entirely about how much they hate the cover, they can if they want. If they want to make their review all about how their dog Foot Foot especially loved to pee on that particular book, they can."
