Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson
"This is it. The quintessential pirate novel. No writer penning a story involving the high seas can pretend they don't use the bones of this wonderfully fun, culturally important, page turner of a novel. Long John Silver is a masterfully ambiguous,..." Read more of this review »

Provenance by Ann Leckie
"Hurrah

So happy to read Ann’s latest novel in the Radtch universe. It’s different from Ancillary of course but still exciting with a rich world. "

So good :)
Thoraiya is on page 252 of 448 of Provenance: “You never thought of it before,” said the deputy chief, “because nobody has ever really questioned your being who you say you are. No one has ever told you your own vestiges are false, or that they mean you’re not really entirely Hwaean.”
“People have told me I wasn’t really an Aughskold,” Ingray pointed out. Defensive. Feeling insulted for some reason she couldn’t name. “I came from a public crèche.”

“Rising up into the air, they took to the sky and flew. From west and beyond west, into the wind and through it, they came past countless moons and suns. One laughed and briefly wore a scarf of raindrops in her hair, and then with wicked feet she kicked a cloud and caused rain to swamp a boat.”
Pat O'Shea, The Hounds of the Mórrígan

“I like the truth, even when it does trouble me.”
Juliet Marillier, Wildwood Dancing

“He gripped it and the sky began to spin; and Pidge knew that if he didn't put it right, the country would somehow obey the signpost and twist around and that, even though he was directly headed for Shancreg and home, he would end up in Kyledove.”

“One day I would have all the books in the world, shelves and shelves of them. I would live my life in a tower of books. I would read all day long and eat peaches. And if any young knights in armor dared to come calling on their white chargers and plead with me to let down my hair, I would pelt them with peach pits until they went home.”
Jacqueline Kelly, The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate
