I gave them all careful consideration, but ended up picking Neverland. Here's why: http://bit.ly/2u6KhXW

However, if I could go anywhere, I'd like to visit Howl's Moving Castle because then you would be able to open doors to absolutely anywhere you wanted to go. Also - Calcifer.(less)

We're just coming to the end of the Long Wet Season, so this will be my Long Dry Season reading list, taking me up to September-ish.

I'm just finishing up A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James (not that brief at almost 700 pages), and Treasure Island, which I started reading after watching Black Sails.

Next, I'm delving into Haunted Futures, an anthology by my publisher Ghostwoods Books, and possibly Antiartists by Ralph Pullins. I've also got another anthology on the go called Shaking the Tree: A Collection of New Fiction and Memoir by Black Women, and I've downloaded The Palace of Illusions, another title by one of my favourite authors, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni.

I'm trying to put a cap on buying new books until I get through my current TBR pile.(less)

“That is the sadness, you see. In all the years and all that was to come - all that they did to us - they forgot what truly mattered. In writing and retelling our deaths, they forgot to tell that we ever truly lived.”
Marion Grace Woolley, The Children of Lir

“You cannot live your life constantly reminded of what you once were. There comes a point at which you must cast off such crutches of youth and learn to stand proudly upon your own feet”
Marion Grace Woolley, Those Rosy Hours at Mazandaran

“Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia.”
E.L. Doctorow

“When her mind was discomposed... a book was the opiate that lulled it to repose.”
Ann Radcliffe, The Romance of the Forest

“You can fail at what you don't want, so you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.”
Jim Carrey
