More like 3.5 stars, but rounding up for charity.

I didn't intend to read this book. I passed it up many times because I knew it relied on 80's nostalgia, and I, unlike most people born in the 80's, do not feel at all nostalgic about it. In fact, I th...more

Naomi Novik
“And we must still try or we would be leaving our friends to fight without us. I think this is what you have meant by duty, all along; I do understand, at least this much of it.”
Naomi Novik, His Majesty's Dragon

Patrick Rothfuss
“It's like everyone tells a story about themselves inside their own head. Always. All the time. That story makes you what you are. We build ourselves out of that story.”
Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind

Margaret Atwood
“If you knew what was going to happen, if you knew everything that was going to happen next—if you knew in advance the consequences of your own actions—you'd be doomed. You'd be ruined as God. You'd be a stone. You'd never eat or drink or laugh or get out of bed in the morning. You'd never love anyone, ever again. You'd never dare to.”
Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin
