Beth Hoffman has definitely improved as a writer in my opinion since her first novel, Saving CeeCee Honeycutt. That book just veered too far into saccharine territory for me, and her young protagonist had the mind and emotions of a 40-year-old woman. ...more

I quit before I finished it. Why? Even though I really love the magic realism genre, I couldn't care for the main characters. There were aspects of the story, the fauns that followed one daughter, the dragonflies that followed the other, the flower's ...more

First Frost is the welcome return of the subtle Southern magic of Sarah Addison Allen. Even though a halfway decent book by her is better than an excellent book by most other authors, (see Lost Lake and The Girl Who Chased the Moon) I was happy to sa ...more

First Frost by Sarah Addison Allen
“She wished she had known back then. Known that happiness isn't a point in time you leave behind. It's what's ahead of you. Every single day.”

“Someone needs to tell those tales. When the battles are fought and won and lost, when the pirates find their treasures and the dragons eat their foes for breakfast with a nice cup of Lapsang souchong, someone needs to tell their bits of overlapping narrative. There's magic in that. It's in the listener, and for each and every ear it will be different, and it will affect them in ways they can never predict. From the mundane to the profound. You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone's soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift. Your sister may be able to see the future, but you yourself can shape it, boy. Do not forget that... there are many kinds of magic, after all.”
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus

Catherynne M. Valente
“That's how you get deathless, volchitsa. Walk the same tale over and over, until you wear a groove in the world, until even if you vanished, the tale would keep turning, keep playing, like a phonograph, and you'd have to get up again, even with a bullet through your eye, to play your part and say your lines.”
Catherynne M. Valente, Deathless

Kate Morton
“You make a life out of what you have, not what you're missing.”
Kate Morton, The Forgotten Garden

“Happiness is a risk. If you’re not a little scared, then you’re not doing it right.”
Sarah Addison Allen, The Peach Keeper

Erin Morgenstern
“Is magic not enough to live for?" Widget asks.
"Magic," the man in the grey suit repeats, turning the word into a laugh. "This is not magic. This is the way the world is, only very few people take the time to stop and note it. Look around you," he says, waving a hand at the surrounding tables. "Not a one of them even has an inkling of the things that are possible in this world, and what's worse is that none of them would listen if you attempted to enlighten them. They want to believe that magic is nothing but clever deception, because to think it real would keep them up at night, afraid of their own existence."
"But some people can be enlightened," Widget says.”
Erin Morgenstern, The Night Circus
