Lewis Carroll

Rainbow Rowell
“Sharing a room with the person you want most is like sharing a room with an open fire.

He's constantly drawing you in. And you're constantly stepping too close. And you know it's not good--that there is no good--that there's absolutely nothing that can ever come of it.

But you do it anyway.
And then...
Well. Then you burn.”
Rainbow Rowell, Carry On

Lloyd Alexander
“We don't need to have just one favorite. We keep adding favorites. Our favorite book is always the book that speaks most directly to us at a particular stage in our lives. And our lives change. We have other favorites that give us what we most need at that particular time. But we never lose the old favorites. They're always with us. We just sort of accumulate them.”
Lloyd Alexander

Gillian Flynn
“Yes, I am finally a match for Amy. The other morning I woke up next to her, and I studied the back of her skull. I tried to read her thoughts. For once I didn't feel like I was staring into the sun. I'm rising to my wife's level of madness. Because I can feel her changing me again: I was a callow boy, and then a man, good and bad. Now at last I'm the hero. I am the one to root for in the never-ending war story of our marriage. It's a story I can live with. Hell, at this point, I can't imagine my story without Amy. She is my forever antagonist.

We are one long frightening climax.”
Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

“I love so many books and authors that it's hard to name just a few, but I'm always particularly excited when new books by Alice Hoffman, John Crowley, Joanne Harris, Elizabeth Knox, and Patricia McKillip come out. (And, of course, books by Ellen [Kushner], and Holly [Black], and the rest of the Bordertown crew!) I'm impatiently looking forward to Susanna Clarke's next book too.

Aside from writing and reading, my favorite things to do are paint, walk in the countryside with my dog, and listen to music -- especially when it's live and it's played by friends. Fortunately there's a lot of live music where I live.”
Terri Windling

Lisa Kleypas
“It’s like your whole life you’ve been falling toward the earth, until the moment someone catches
you. And you realize that somehow you’ve caught her at the same time. And together, instead of
falling, you might be able to fly.” The ghost went to the discarded clipping and stared down at the
photo, riveted. “She’s a beaut, isn’t she?”
“Sure,” Alex said automatically, although there was nothing of Zoë’s sparkling allure in the
photo, only a hint of resemblance.”
Lisa Kleypas, Dream Lake

Christie Purifoy
“Two years before our arrival at Maplehurst, we had left the Midwest eager for new jobs, milder weather, and a house of our own with a real backyard. We were unprepared for the enormity of our losses. Good friends. Close-knit community. A meaningful connection with the work of our minds and our hands.
There was one lost thing, in particular. It was such a natural part of our prewilderness lives that I only ever recognized it after it was gone. In our northern city, we had lived a seasonal rhythm of summer festivals and winter sledding, spring baseball games and autumn apple picking. Our moments and our months were distinguished by the color of the trees, deep red or spring green, and the color of the lake, sparkling and playful in summer, menacing and dull in winter.
These things were the beautiful, sometimes harsh, but always rhythmic backdrop in our days. Time was like music. It had a melody. In the wilderness, the only thing that differentiated one season from the next was my terrible winter asthma. Without time's music, I became aimless and disconnected, like a child's lost balloon.”
Christie Purifoy, Roots and Sky: A Journey Home in Four Seasons

Stacey Ballis
“In the center of the table is a classic deli platter of lox and tuna salad with all the fixings, bagels, and cream cheeses. And on a trivet, a noodle kugel, a casserole of egg noodles suspended in a light sweet custard, with a crunchy topping of crushed cornflakes mixed with cinnamon and brown sugar. It was always my favorite thing my mom ever made.
"All my favorites." My mom beams at me.
"And mine too. Let's eat!" my dad says, swatting my mom on her ample tush.
We make our plates, I grab a plain bagel and top one up with tuna salad and dill pickle, and the other with chive cream cheese and cucumber. I also help myself to a large corner chunk of kugel, for maximum crispy edges, and some coleslaw. Clearly someone went all the way out to Kaufman's on Dempster in Skokie; I can tell by the bagels. A slight crunch on the outside gives way to perfect dense chewiness.”
Stacey Ballis, Wedding Girl

“She put so much love and magic into her baking. I bet you all had your favorite-" Kat tries to swallow her tears but she can't.
"Pistachio cream croissants!" Noa shouts out.
Kat blinks, scanning the crowd for the perpetrator and sees Noa looking up at her, grinning.
Kat nods. "My favorite too."
She looks out at the congregation again, blinking back her tears.
"Zucchini and caramelized onion pizza!" someone else shouts.
Kat sniffs, wiping her eyes with the back of her hand.
"Tiramisu cheesecake!"
"Vanilla and elderflower brownies!"
"Cinnamon and nutmeg biscuits!"
"Spiced chocolate cake!"
Kat starts to smile. She looks out at the congregation, at their happy, memory-filled faces, the taste of Cosima's baking still on their tongues, and feels her heart begin to lift.
"Passion fruit and pear cannoli!"
"Chocolate and pistachio cream cupcakes!" shouts Amandine.
"Dough twists dipped in Nutella!" Heloise calls out.”
Menna van Praag, The Witches of Cambridge

“I’d rather write about this world than live in it and I’d rather play music all day and read and wander around in bookstores and watch humans but not be one of them.”
