I stood in a wonderfully long line to get the ARC this summer at ALA and boy was it worth it. I didn't think that this second book could be better than the first, but I was proved wrong. Tahir is a masterful storyteller and world builder. This book w ...more

Rick Yancey
“...Grimacing, I plunged a hand into the fouled water to clear the clog, morbid curiosity drawing my youthful eyes to the gray globs of gore floating upon the surface. It was not horror that seized my imagination so much as wonder: sixty years of dreams and desires, hunger and hope, love and longing, blasted away in a single explosive instant, mind and brain. The mind of Erasmus Gray was gone; the remnants of its vessel floated, as light and insubstantial as popcorn, in the water. Which fluffy bit held your ambition, Erasmus Gray? Which speck your pride? Ah, how absurd the primping and preening of our race! Is it not the ultimate arrogance to believe we are more than is contained in our biology? What counterarguments may be put forth, what valid objections raised, to the claim of Ecclesiastes, "Vanity of vanities; all is vanity"?”
Rick Yancey, The Monstrumologist

Robert Frost
“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.”
Robert Frost

Libba Bray
“Really, being a librarian is a much more dangerous job than you realize.”
Libba Bray, Beauty Queens

Eliot Schrefer
“…the primary trait of young adult literature is that the author’s emphasis is on plot and character and not on his own brilliance. And because few people talk about whether a young adult work is commercial or literary; the two are still in sync, and everyone’s benefitting.”
Eliot Schrefer

Rae Carson
“I think sometimes when we find love we pretend it away, or ignore it, or tell ourselves we’re imagining it. Because it is the most painful kind of hope there is.”
Rae Carson, The Bitter Kingdom
