The first romance novel I read was either The Flame and the Flower by Kathleen Woodiwiss (borrowed from my father's book shelves) or These Old Shades by Georgette Heyer (discovered on the library shelves). Both instilled a love of historical romance from which I have never recovered – and nor do I wish to recover. For a while I read them veraciously, alternating with adventure stories and detective novels. Then I drifted away from romance novels and wondered I was reading less and less.

Fortunately, I was lucky enough to stumble across the novels of Anne Gracie and one chapter was enough to explain what I was missing - the derring-do, the love, the passion and the escapism. The kind of books that make the world look like a better place. Now

Do one thing every day that scares you.
“Do one thing every day that scares you.”
Eleanor Roosevelt

Marian Keyes
“I wished there was some kind of switch on my brain. That I could turn it off in the same way that I could turn off the television. Just click it off and immediately empty my mind of all these images and worrying thoughts. And simply leave a blank screen. Or if I could just remove my head and put it on the bedside table and forget about it until morning. And then attach it again when I needed it.”
Marian Keyes, Watermelon

Marian Keyes
“... I am more of an ambler. I once overheard my old boss in Dublin describe me as very "hello trees, hello flowers." It was intended as an insult and it fulfilled its brief; I was insulted. I had little interest in greeting trees and flowers but nor did I treat life as a treadmill, on which it was vital to keep fleeing forward in order to avoid being sucked off the back and out of the game.”
Marian Keyes

Marian Keyes
“So I'm back again to the eternal question, the one that has plagued me all my life: How Do Other People Do It? How come they were given life's rule book and I missed out? Where was I when God was dispensing capability and cop on? Looking at shoes, probably.”
Marian Keyes, Further Under the Duvet

Marian Keyes
“Didn't go in, just hovered outside like homeless person because (a) place was too small and Detta would have spotted me, and (b) once you're through doors of shop like that, if you try to leave without buying anything, they shoot you in the back with sniper's rifle.”
Marian Keyes, Anybody Out There?
