Lucas by Elna Holst
"Thanks to net galley.com and NineStar Press publishing for the advance ARC copy for my honest review.

This was my first read from author Elna Holst, that she uses a character from Jane Austen's classic "Pride and Prejudice", with "Lucas" made it both" Read more of this review »

Lucas by Elna Holst
"In my last review of a Holst novella, I wished her books were longer. Yes! Wishes do come true. This is truly beautiful and completely different from her three novellas. Set in the early 1800s, this is a spin-off of Pride and Prejudice taking a specu" Read more of this review »

One Woman's Treasure by Jean Copeland
"3.75 Stars. This was a good read. In fact this is right up there with The Ashford Place as being my favorite Copeland books. While I did really like this, I am a teeny bit disappointed. To me this book could have been fan-bloody-tastic, there was so " Read more of this review »

This is a slim little novel…Okay, no; I read it on my phone, on which it is as ”slim” as Samuel Richardson’s Clarissa. Let’s just say it’s shorter than most historical fiction—something I appreciated, even if I enjoy the scope of Big Historical Sagas ...more

Pet by Akwaeke Emezi ripped me apart. In a good way, though; every so often, you need to be ripped apart by a book; you need to be told to ”see the unseen”.⠀

Pet is both a scathing reminder of this, as well as a YA whimsical legend with shades of hor

Oscar Wilde
“The only way to get rid of temptation is to yield to it.”
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

Truman Capote
“You can't blame a writer for what the characters say.”
Truman Capote

Jeanette Winterson
“You’ll get over it…” It’s the clichés that cause the trouble. To lose someone you love is to alter your life for ever. You don’t get over it because ‘it” is the person you loved. The pain stops, there are new people, but the gap never closes. How could it? The particularness of someone who mattered enough to grieve over is not made anodyne by death. This hole in my heart is in the shape of you and no-one else can fit it. Why would I want them to?”
Jeanette Winterson, Written on the Body

Jeanette Winterson
“While I can’t have you, I long for you. I am the kind of person who would miss a train or a plane to meet you for coffee. I’d take a taxi across town to see you for ten minutes. I’d wait outside all night if I thought you would open the door in the morning. If you call me and say ‘Will you…’ my answer is ‘Yes’, before your sentence is out. I spin worlds where we could be together. I dream you. For me, imagination and desire are very close.”
Jeanette Winterson

Jeanette Winterson
“Do you fall in love often?"

Yes often. With a view, with a book, with a dog, a cat, with numbers, with friends, with complete strangers, with nothing at all.”
Jeanette Winterson, Gut Symmetries
