On a cold Autumn evening back in 2008, seven-year-old Tegan Anderson began to write their first short stories, finding a more creative way to learn their spellings. Many years and many more short stories later, they haven't stopped for anything. Now, they're writing more than they ever believed possible.

Tegan may write the worlds they would prefer to exist in but currently lives in Devon with their overflowing bookshelves and expanding imagination.

It may sound egotistical, but I'd love to travel to the worlds where my characters live, especially the one in the novel I'm working on now.(less)

The Atlas Paradox by Olivie Blake | ARC REVIEW

I will begin this review by saying that I probably shouldn’t have requested the ARC based on how little I enjoyed The Atlas Six, but I was intrigued by the ending and wanted to know more. This was a mistake. I’m breaking this review down into categories based on thoughts I had while reading this […]

Maggie Stiefvater
Ah, I'm glad you're interested in them! But with the final book in the Dreamer Trilogy, I'm closing the book on the TRC world (that's a pun! get it??), a decade after the first book in the Raven Cycle published. It's been a wild and rewarding ride, b See Maggie’s answer.

Quotes by Tegan Anderson  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“We circle each other, our gazes remaining locked, the white dress fanning out and wrapping around our legs. Neither of us make any attempt to remove it as my free hand drops to her waist, hers on my shoulder. We spin and sway down the aisle in imperfect sync to the beat of the progressing song and eventually I feel my body relax, allowing a small smile to form.”
Tegan Anderson, Beauty in the Breakdown

“There was a moment where it feels as if we both suddenly let go. Let our worries, our pain, and our sorrow go. Nothing else seemed to matter before it was right there, right now, where we were supposed to be. The past was irrelevant. The future is still undecided.”
Tegan Anderson, Beauty in the Breakdown

“That was the moment when I almost forgot we were losing the narrative that is life.”
Tegan Anderson, Beauty in the Breakdown

“Everyone wanted me to feed them that story—darkness to light, weakness to strength, broken to whole. I wanted it, too.”
John Green, Turtles All the Way Down

“Many boys will bring you flowers. But someday you'll meet a boy who will learn your favorite flower, your favorite song, your favorite sweet. And even if he is too poor to give you any of them, it won't matter because he will have taken the time to know you as no one else does. Only that boy earns your heart.”
Leigh Bardugo, Six of Crows

“Bob says hello," He told the stars.
The Argo II sailed into the night.”
Rick Riordan, The House of Hades
tags: end, no, sad

“I can recount our small collection of memories from the time we spent exploring through those trees, running carelessly as if we were children again. I can easily remember the fallen tree serving as a bridge over the stream, the one that we both hung upside down from and felt all of the blood rush to our heads. I would give anything to regain that childlike sense of innocence we shared in our sparse moments of escaping from our problems. Unfortunately, they crept back as soon as the trees were fading into the horizon and the front door shut behind us.”
Tegan Anderson, Beauty in the Breakdown

“It’s times like this when it feels as if everything has gone from zero to a hundred miles per hour in an instance before crashing into a wall and exploding. You jump into a situation head first without knowing what’s going to happen and it ends up awful. You feel as if you will shatter at the slightest touch, about to crumble into dust if another situation becomes too ridiculous, too desperate.”
Tegan Anderson, Beauty in the Breakdown
