Tess of the Road by Rachel Hartman
"This felt like a YA version of Taran Wanderer. I wonder whether Alexander’s masterpiece was a conscious inspiration for Hartman. I don’t normally enjoy YA, but I thought this was just great. It wasn’t obvious until near the end that there would be..." Read more of this review »

“Beware making a person, rather than a position, the opposition. If we do that we run the risk of losing that person as an ally on another issue about which we both agree.

Elizabeth Gilbert
“I have never created anything in my life that did not make me feel, at some point or another, like I was the guy who just walked into a fancy ball wearing a homemade lobster costume.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

Katherine Rundell
“Books crowbar the world open for you.”
Katherine Rundell, Rooftoppers
