Love Letters to the Dead by Ava Dellaira
"4.5 stars Months ago, I had to put Love Letters to the Dead down because it was making me so desperately sad. Almost a full year later, I read the last half of it with a lump in my throat and tears dripping down my face. This is a profoundly movin..." Read more of this review »

The Museum of Extraordinary Things by Alice Hoffman
"I fear that I am a little close to this subject to be able to appropriately judge it. For the sake of full disclosure, I have to admit that I manage the museum collection for the Coney Island Museum, so I know the history, I know the stories of th..." Read more of this review »
The Museum of Extraordinary Things by Alice Hoffman
"I loved all the history in this novel, the burgeoning Coney Island, the freak shows and all the strange sights to see on the Boardwalk. The descriptions of these things were amazing and this was the best characterization in this novel. I am a big..." Read more of this review »

Jane Austen
“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! -- When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Sarah Dunant
“But anyone who has been that young knows that the great grief of love is that your body feels the most when it knows the least.”
Sarah Dunant

Jane Austen
“There are few people whom I really love, and still fewer of whom I think well. The more I see of the world, the more am I dissatisfied with it; and every day confirms my belief of the inconsistency of all human characters, and of the little dependence that can be placed on the appearance of merit or sense.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“If you really want to possess a woman, you must think like her, and the first thing to do is win over her soul. The rest, that sweet, soft wrapping that steals away your senses and your virtue, is a bonus.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind

Carlos Ruiz Zafón
“There's no such thing as dead languages, only dormant minds.”
Carlos Ruiz Zafón, The Shadow of the Wind
