Happy October, Darlings!

I think every year I forget what autumn feels like. I remember that the leaves change, sweaters emerge from the back of closets, pumpkin spice everything goes on sale everywhere. But I'd forgotten the way the season smells, that crisper breath of air, the scent of dying leaves that makes a city or town feel as if it's been magically transformed into some place else enti Read more of this blog post »

Secrets and Lies by Selena Montgomery
"Yes, I am adding an MF romance to my prodigious TBR. Because Selena Montgomery is a pseudo for Stacey Abrams...and she's the kind of politician I wish had run for office in Georgia back when I lived there. So, supporting her now. (Not sure how much o" Read more of this review »
Sea of Ruin by Pam Godwin
"Good heavens. I have no idea how to even begin to talk about this book. It doesn’t help that I have no idea how or when or why I came to purchase it—so I kind of assumed it was some kind of … YA pirate romp?

It is not a YA pirate romp.

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

“The first time someone else touched me with the intent to pleasure, I fell in love. Not with that person, but with the act itself. Such intimacy and accord. Even with the awkwardness of first time lovers there was a grace and purity, carnal and beautiful that I knew from that moment on I could never live without.”
Fiona Zedde, Bliss

“Just because I’ve been gone from this country for most of my life doesn’t mean I understand it any less. When I was fifteen I left Jamaica. I knew that I was a lesbian then and, because of what I looked like, I was an out lesbian. It was hard for me. It was hard for the thirteen years I was in England, for various reasons, and it’s going to be difficult here as well. I don’t anticipate anything being easy. But I’d rather suffer the chance of someone accosting me for being a dyke than suffer the emotional violence I’d do to myself if I wasn’t honest about who I am.”
Fiona Zedde, Bliss

“Across from her, Hunter devoured her meal even more completely than she had. Sinclair watched her sink sharp teeth into the chicken bone, heard it snap, then the soft grunt of satisfaction. She made soft sucking sounds then emptied her mouth of the tiny ground up remains on a corner of her dish. Hunter ate with rabbit-like intensity, biting and sucking and spitting in an even rhythm until all that was left on the plate was a small brown and beige pile of ground bones. She finally looked up and caught Sinclair staring.”
Fiona Zedde, Bliss

“I prefer to regard a dessert as I would imagine the perfect woman: subtle, a little bittersweet, not blowsy and extrovert. Delicately made up, not highly rouged. Holding back, not exposing everything and, of course, with a flavor that lasts. ”
Graham Kerr
