Jazz music! Blackmail! Shell-shock! Lesbians! Hermits! Mountains! Wombats!

I liked this one A LOT, especially the part of the book that takes place in the Australian Alps. It was all just so beautifully written and so different from Phryne's usual gal
The Green Mill Murder by Kerry Greenwood
"The series is getting better with each book. The characters in this one really came to life, and I appreciated how the realities of WW1 came into it.

One BIG problem for those reading the hardcover version - THE LAST CHAPTER IS MISSING. Thus I only..." Read more of this review »

"I'm wishing now that I wasn't reading these out of order, because this volume is much improved over the #2 and #3 that I have read. Greenwood slows down a bit in order to describe things more, and allow the characters (and readers) more time to ab..." Read more of this review »

Sophie is on page 70 of 173 of The Green Mill Murder: obviously the books don't ship Phryne and Jack, but I'm beginning to think they ship Phryne and Peter Smith.

Yes Please by Amy Poehler
"Okay, so I know I'm biased here, but I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. I enjoy Amy's voice (both writing and speaking), and the guests are fun. I am curious, though, what this book is like without the audio component. I mean, I'm sure it's stil..." Read more of this review »

Nova Ren Suma
“I could tell he wanted the best for me. Of course, he assumed that would be getting out. Everyone always thought that, not of what we had to go back to, at home. Maybe our parents had thrown away our mattresses. Maybe they'd told our siblings we'd been run over by trains, to make our absence fonder.

Not everyone had a parent. It could be that nothing was waiting for us. Our keys would no longer fit the locks. We'd resort to ringing the bell, saying we've come home, can't we come in?

The eye in the peephole would show itself, and that eye could belong to a stranger, as our family had moved halfway across the country and never informed us. Or that eye could belong to the woman who carried us for nine months, who labored for fourteen hours, who was sliced open with a C-section to give us life, and now wished she never did.

The juvenile correctional system could let us out into the world, but it could not control who would be out there, willing to claim us.”
Nova Ren Suma, The Walls Around Us

“And it's not that she tells him it didn't happen, it's that by the time he asks, she no longer has a language of her own. But that's enough. It always is.”
Courtney Summers, All the Rage

Jon Krakauer
“Statistically, the odds that any given rape was committed by a serial offender are around 90 percent," Lisak said. "The research is clear on this. The foremost issue for police and prosecutors should be that you have a predator out there. By reporting this rape, the victim is giving you an opportunity to put this guy away. If you decline to pursue the case because the victim was drunk, or had a history of promiscuity, or whatever, the offender is almost certainly going to keep raping other women. We need cops and prosecutors who get it that 'nice guys' like Frank are serious criminals.”
Jon Krakauer, Missoula: Rape and the Justice System in a College Town

Jon Krakauer
“When an individual is raped in this country, more than 90 percent of the time the rapist gets away with the crime.”

Courtney Summers
“He slings his arm around my shoulder. I feel the question after he does it. -Is this okay?- I don't think it is. I don't know how to fold myself into him in any way that feels right.”
Courtney Summers, All the Rage
