Princess in Pink by Meg Cabot
"Oh Mia. I did feel more sympathy for her this time through. It IS hard, sometimes, when you're a teenager (and sometimes when you're older!) to say, "Hey, I like this thing" when someone you love doesn't like it. IN FACT, it takes, say, self-actua..." Read more of this review »

Simply Irresistible by Kate Pearce
"Not really a stand-alone novella, as this is the extension of the story of several characters we've encountered in earlier books in the HOUSE OF PLEASURE series. It seems more of a "thank-you" present to gift to avid readers of the series than a s..." Read more of this review »

Deirdre is on page 292 of 480 of Salt Sugar Fat: Finding this compulsive reading. But the ire it's sparking is making me have to put it down occasionally.

C.E. Murphy
“In Ireland, you go to someone's house, and she asks you if you want a cup of tea. You say no, thank you, you're really just fine. She asks if you're sure. You say of course you're sure, really, you don't need a thing. Except they pronounce it ting. You don't need a ting. Well, she says then, I was going to get myself some anyway, so it would be no trouble. Ah, you say, well, if you were going to get yourself some, I wouldn't mind a spot of tea, at that, so long as it's no trouble and I can give you a hand in the kitchen. Then you go through the whole thing all over again until you both end up in the kitchen drinking tea and chatting.

In America, someone asks you if you want a cup of tea, you say no, and then you don't get any damned tea.

I liked the Irish way better.”
C.E. Murphy, Urban Shaman

Sarah Mayberry
“and the Buck women found themselves in the novel position of having two healthy, strong men at their bidding.”
Sarah Mayberry, Almost A Bride

Connie Willis
“I was on a walking tour of Oxford colleges once with a group of bored and unimpressable tourists. They yawned at Balliol's quad, T.E. Lawrence's and Churchill's portraits, and the blackboard Einstein wrote his E=mc2 on. Then the tour guide said, 'And this is the Bridge of Sighs, where Lord Peter proposed (in Latin) to Harriet,' and everyone suddenly came to life and began snapping pictures. Such is the power of books.”
Connie Willis, The Winds of Marble Arch and Other Stories

“Tea is the magic key to the vault where my brain is kept.”
Frances Hardinge

Cynthia Voigt
“But I'll tell you something else, too. Something I've learned, the hard way. I guess"—Gram laughed a little—"I'm the kind of person who has to learn things the hard way. You've got to hold on. Hold on to people. They can get away from you. It's not always going to be fun, but if you don't—hold on—then you lose them.”
Cynthia Voigt
