This book, which is made up of portions from selected zines that Pérez created from 1994-2014, was a pleasing read to immerse myself in over the course of several commutes and evenings. I don't think that I've read a single-author zine anthology befo ...more

Every Heart a Doorway by Seanan McGuire
Every Heart a Doorway (Wayward Children, #1)
by Seanan McGuire (Goodreads Author)
recommended to Heather by: Bruce

Rate this book
Clear rating
Every Heart a Doorway, set at Eleanor West's Home for Wayward Children, is a novel (novella?) that I felt was more about the allegory than the story, though Cory Doctorow feels that it's the other way around. Not that I didn't like this (beautifully- ...more

I've been making my way through Gail Carriger's Finishing School series over the past four years, picking one up when I found myself wanting something light and fun, and this fourth and final book was probably my favorite. As with the others, we're i ...more

For years, until it stopped happening, my favorite thing to do on New Year's Eve was to go to the Pratt campus here in Brooklyn, which has a steam-powered electricity-generating power plant. On New Year's Eve, the chief engineer would rig up his coll ...more

William Dalrymple
“There was that all-pervasive evening scent of cut grass and jasmine.”
William Dalrymple, City of Djinns: A Year in Delhi

André Aciman
“Every walk carves out a new city. And each of these tiny cities has its main square, a downtown area all its own, its own memorial statue, its own landmarks, laundromats, bus terminal—in short, its own focal point (from the Latin word focus, meaning fireplace, hearth, foyer, home), warm spot, sweet spot, soft spot, hot spot.”
André Aciman, Alibis: Essays on Elsewhere

Scarlett Thomas
“I drove out of Dartmouth and after a while Start Bay emerged out of the brightening gloom like the end of a set of parentheses in a book about the natural world. Inside the parentheses was a story about the sea. Outside them, the land: green, red and brown fields, and hills curling over the landscape. I saw small, delicate clumps of snowdrops, big rough patches of gorse, and along the thin road, houses with yellow roses and mimosa growing in their gardens.”
Scarlett Thomas, Our Tragic Universe

Jo Walton
“Across the street, there were parties at other windows. The sky was fading behind the roof peaks and chimney tops, which stood out like cardboard cutout silhouettes, and I looked from them to the lit windows, and back again. A flock of birds, pigeons probably, wheeled across the sky, heading home before dark.”
Jo Walton, Half a Crown
