Elena and 47 other people liked Navessa's review of Glitterland (Glitterland #1):
Glitterland by Alexis  Hall
I thought this book was going to make me cry the ugly, unrestrained tears of the blubberkin. I blame Julio's review. For some reason, I associated the salty mushpuddle he turned me into with the book itself. This book didn’t make me cry. It made m..." Read more of this review »

Uprooted by Naomi Novik

I didn't realize this was a novella until I got to the end and went, "Where's the second half?"

It started out as pretty decent self-indulgent PNR, which is what I was in the mood for, but dragon-guy's friends made a couple decisions that wer

“She wagged a finger at him. “You’re mispronouncing that word.”
“Your pardon?” He groped, trying to remember what he’d said. “Suffragette? How does one pronounce it, then?”
“Suffragette,” she said, “is pronounced with an exclamation point at the end. Like this: ‘Huzzah! Suffragettes!”
Courtney Milan, The Suffragette Scandal

Catherynne M. Valente
“I'm not lost, because I haven't any idea where to go that I might get lost on the way to. I'd like to get lost, because then I'd know where I was going, you see.”
Catherynne M. Valente, The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making

Courtney Milan
“He stood in the doorway of her office. He was, as always, the consummate scoundrel. He leaned against the doorframe, smiling—almost smirking—at her, as if he knew how rapidly her heart had started beating.

If that was how they were going to do this…

She simply raised an eyebrow in his direction. “Oh,” she said with a sniff. “It’s you.”

“You’re not fooling anyone,” he said.

She could feel the corner of her mouth twitch up. Last time she’d seen him, he’d kissed her so thoroughly she had not yet recovered.

“I’m not?”

“I heard it most distinctly,” he told her. “You might have said ‘It’s you,’ but there was a distinct exclamation mark at the end. In fact, I think there were two.”

“Oh, dear.” Free looked down, fluttering her eyelashes demurely. “Is my punctuation showing once more?”

His eyes darkened and he took a step into her office. “Don’t hide it on my account,” he growled. “You have the most damnably beautiful punctuation that I have ever seen.”
Courtney Milan, The Suffragette Scandal

“It is well known that reading quickens the growth of a heart like nothing else.”

Cassandra Clare
“They’re not hideous,” said Tessa.
Will blinked at her. “What?”
“Gideon and Gabriel,” said Tessa. “They’re really quite good-looking, not hideous at all.”
“I spoke,” said Will, in sepulchral tones, “of the pitch-black inner depths of their souls.”
Tessa snorted. “And what color do you suppose the inner depths of your soul are, Will Herondale?”
“Mauve,” said Will.”
Cassandra Clare, Clockwork Prince
