"This promises to be as stomach churning as I expected it to be. Sigh. The beautiful edition I have makes the reading easier but the misogyny is not helping. At all." Jan 22, 2015 01:06AM

Nafiza and 7 other people liked Rincey's review of Mr. Fox:
Mr. Fox by Helen Oyeyemi
"I went into this with a slight disadvantage since I don't really know the fairytales/folklore that this book plays with, so I feel like I missed out on a lot of the interesting things that Oyeyemi does here. Also, this is Meta with a capital "M" w..." Read more of this review »

Laini Taylor
“It is a condition of monsters that they do not perceive themselves as such. The dragon, you know, hunkered in the village devouring maidens, heard the townsfolk cry 'Monster!' and looked behind him.”
Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke & Bone

Chang-rae Lee
“For sometimes you can't help but crave some ruin in what you love.”
Chang-rae Lee, On Such a Full Sea

Franny Billingsley
“Eldric turned away from the mirror, holding out his hand. In the cup of his hand lay his fidget of paper clips. But the fidget had blossomed into a crown. An allover-filigree crown, with a twisty spire marking the front.
I stared at it for some moments. "It's for you," said Eldric. "If you want it."
"I'm seventeen," I said. "I haven't played at princess for years."
"Does that matter ?" Eldric set it on my head. It was almost weightless, a true crown for the steam age.
In a proper story, antagonistic sparks would fly between Eldric and me, sparks that would sweeten the inevitable kiss on page 324. But life doesn't work that way. I didn't hate Eldric, which, for me, is about as good as things get.”
Franny Billingsley, Chime

E. Nesbit
“There is nothing more luxurious than eating while you read—unless it be reading while you eat. Amabel did both: they are not the same thing, as you will see if you think the matter over.”
E. Nesbit, The Magic World

G. Willow Wilson
“I have had much experience with the unclean and uncivilized in the recent past. Shall I tell you what I discovered? I am not the state of my feet. I am not the dirt on my hands or the hygiene of my private parts. If I were these things, I would not have been at liberty to pray at any time since my arrest. But I did pray, because I am not these things. In the end, I am not even myself. I am a string of bones speaking the word God.”
G. Willow Wilson, Alif the Unseen
