The Likeness by Tana French
"There are times when trying on someone else's life for size seems like a very tempting idea. But how do you not lose yourself in it?

This book shredded my heart into tiny little pieces.

It made me reexperience that hollow, empty, lonely, lost feeli..." Read more of this review »

The Likeness by Tana French
"I read this like it was Harry Potter. A "sequel" to French's debut, "In the Woods." I use the quotes because although this story involves Cassie Maddox, it doesn't exactly continue the particular events of the previous novel. Here the story involv..." Read more of this review »

In the Woods by Tana French

Olga liked a quote
In the Woods by Tana French
“Now it seems obvious, of course, that even a strong person has weak spots and that I had hit Cassie's full force, with all the precision of a jeweler fragmenting a stone along a flaw. She must have thought, sometimes, of her namesake, the votary branded with her god's most inventive and sadistic curse: to tell the truth, and never to be believed.”
Tana French

J.R.R. Tolkien
“Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men, doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings

Janet Fitch
“Always learn poems by heart. They have to become the marrow in your bones. Like fluoride in the water, they'll make your soul impervious to the world's soft decay.”
Janet Fitch, White Oleander

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Maya Angelou
“Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage, you can't practice any other virtue consistently.”
Maya Angelou

Philip K. Dick
“Reality is that which, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.”
Philip K. Dick, I Hope I Shall Arrive Soon
