It was a very enjoyable book and if you have enjoyed Her other novels about Shadowhunters you will undoubtedly enjoy this. Now I took a point off of this review because I was rather annoyed by the way this novel was sort of forced together with the p ...more

As always Bill Bryson is a fantastic writer. Reading this made me feel as if I was taking a small vacation to the UK during my lunch breaks. That being said, like many vacations I found myself getting annoyed by my travel companion. How many times ca ...more

It wasn't a bad book, but I can't really call it a good one either. I feel like the character of Harmony Black fell a bit flat she could have used some more development beyond the flashbacks to her childhood. The writing itself (not to be confused wi ...more

J.R.R. Tolkien
“War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Two Towers

Ernest Hemingway
“The first draft of anything is shit.”
Ernest Hemingway

J.R.R. Tolkien
“We have come from God, and inevitably the myths woven by us, though they contain error, will also reflect a splintered fragment of the true light, the eternal truth that is with God. Indeed only by myth-making, only by becoming 'sub-creator' and inventing stories, can Man aspire to the state of perfection that he knew before the Fall. Our myths may be misguided, but they steer however shakily towards the true harbour, while materialistic 'progress' leads only to a yawning abyss and the Iron Crown of the power of evil.”
J.R.R. Tolkien

Libba Bray
“Do you ever feel that way?"
"Lonely?"
I search for the words. "Restless. As if you haven't really met yourself yet. As is you'd passed yourself once in the fog, and your heart leapt - 'Ah! There I Am! I've been missing that piece!' But it happens too fast, and then that part of you disappears into the fog again. And you spend the rest of your days looking for it."
He nods, and I think he's appeasing me. I feel stupid of having said it. It's sentimental and true, and I've revealed a part of myself I shouldn't have.
"Do you know what I think?" Kartik says at last.
"What?"
"Sometimes, I think you can glimpse it in another.”
Libba Bray, The Sweet Far Thing
