TEETH is a Buzzbook and other bookish things + GIVEAWAYS

Hello lovely readers!

The sun has been shining and I’m just feeling the Spring air. I can’t get enough. Loads of cool things have happened so I’m going to go through them all briefly.


Firstly, a reader got the cover of THE DEAD HOUSE tattooed on her body! I am in awe and utterly mesmerised. Doesn’t it look cool??! I never in my wildest dreams thought this would happen (except me doing it to myself, maybe...

“I've learned, in my tragic little life, that memories are like water. Not solid, like some people think. Once something happens, it isn't set it stone. It can change.

You can make yourself believe anything if you lie to yourself enough.”
Dawn Kurtagich, The Dead House

“Tell me pleasant lies, and I will believe them before I throw them away.”
Dawn Kurtagich, And the Trees Crept In

“They think I don't exist . . . they think I'm like a disease. I'm infecting Carly.”

“It was disconcerting that being in love felt lonelier than lonelines.”
Emily Maguire

“Another belief of mine: that everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise.”
Margaret Atwood, Cat's Eye

“I have little left in myself -- I must have you. The world may laugh -- may call me absurd, selfish -- but it does not signify. My very soul demands you: it will be satisfied, or it will take deadly vengeance on its frame.”
Charlotte Brontë, Jane Eyre

“He would have told her - he would have said, it matters not if you are here or there, for I see you before me every moment. I see you in the light of the water, in the swaying of the young trees in the spring wind. I see you in the shadows of the great oaks, I hear your voice in the cry of the owl at night. You are the blood in my veins, and the beating of my heart. You are my first waking thought, and my last sigh before sleeping. You are - you are bone of my bone, and breath of my breath.”
Juliet Marillier, Daughter of the Forest

“All that he had of her was his memory, where he held every moment, every single moment that she had been his. That was all he had, to keep out the loneliness.”
Juliet Marillier, Daughter of the Forest
