Would I like to go to London in the 1890s and traverse the streets Sherlock Holmes did? Sure, but I wouldn't consider that world strictly fictional, only the plot placed in that world. How about Charlotte Bronte's wild moors? Of course! But what would I do there? Wait for ghosts to appear and drink a lot, most likely. With this outlook, I would likely prefer to inhabit the world of Susanna Clarke's Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell. There, I would find the moody windswept wilds of Yorkshire, the plus parlors of London, and a lot of magic and witty conversation.(less)

"Happiness," a debut memoir by Heather Harpham is one I'm looking forward to diving into. On my list to read for pleasure are "How to Be Human" by Paula Cocozza and "The Good People" by Hannah Kent. Currently, I'm catching up on reading, "The Lumineries," and at some point this summer, I plan on reading "Shirley" by Charlotte Bronte, which I have also admittedly never read!

This is my fourth read, the first being when I was about 12 years old. It's interesting to read it now, having an 11 year old daughter myself, and to note that what I remember experiencing at a younger age is quite different than what is on the page: ...more

Driven storytelling, juicy historical nuggets throughout, and twists I truly did not see coming. A total page-turner, and not in an annoying way. Is it Dickens or even Faber? A bit. But it doesn't need to be. It's completely enthralling fun.

Hilary Mantel
“I look like a watermelon with a great slice hacked out. I say to myself, it's just another border post on the frontier between medicine and greengrocery; growths and tumour seem always to be described as "the size of a plum" or "the size of a grapefruit".”
Hilary Mantel, Ink In The Blood: A Hospital Diary

Hilary Mantel
“When it was time to write, and he took his pen in his hand, he never thought of consequences; he thought of style. I wonder why I ever bothered with sex, he thought; there's nothing in this breathing world so gratifying as an artfully placed semicolon.”
Hilary Mantel, A Place of Greater Safety

Ernest Hemingway
“There is nothing you can do except try to write it the way that it was. So you must write each day better than you possibly can and use the sorrow that you have now to make you know how the early sorrow came. And you must always remember the things you believed because if you know them they will be there in the writing and you won’t betray them. The writing is the only progress you make.”
Ernest Hemingway, The Garden of Eden

“...either I’m losing my mind, or I saw mermaids." --Alec Costner, The Mermaid Coast”

Robert Woolcott
“All I am saying, is there is evidence, biological and genetic, that the existence of mermaids is possible, if not probable. Over time, evolution can be revolutionary, I like to say.” -Professor Nathaniel Hand”
