Mary Poppins in the Park by P.L. Travers

A collection of stories of Mary Poppins and the Banks children in the park, not tied to any specific part of the timeline of the other books. I felt a little unevenly about the stories, loving some of them to bits (like the one where the storybook bo ...more

Miniä by Tuomas Kyrö
Rate this book
Clear rating
Hyvin herttainen pieni kirja, kevyt mutta ihmisläheisen lämmin ja sanoo pinnan alla jotain tärkeää. Nyt tuli sellainen olo, että voisin lukea enemmänkin Kyrön kirjoja, joita en ole tähän mennessä tullut lukeneeksi.

Kilmeny of the Orchard by L.M. Montgomery

I enjoyed reading this, despite its flaws. It's not exactly Montgomery's best work: while the writing is beautiful and there's something interesting about the background story and its consequences, the characters aren't very interesting. I think it c ...more

I have no idea how many times I've read this book since I first discovered it at the age of 11 or so. But it seems no matter how many times I read it, or how often, I never grow tired of it. Its world is enchanting. It's everyday life with its human- ...more

This was a huge big childhood favourite that I read many times in my childhood / early teens. Now I reread it after a long, long break and it's interesting how little I remembered of it, but when I read it, it did feel familiar. And I did remember th ...more

Enjoyed this pretty much as well as the first volume. I also enjoyed Sophronia's development and the way she eventually had to start thinking about the consequences of her own actions. And seeing some characters from the Parasol Protectorate series p ...more

Umberto Eco
“The real hero is always a hero by mistake; he dreams of being an honest coward like everybody else.”
Umberto Eco, Travels in Hyperreality

Umberto Eco
“A dream is a scripture, and many scriptures are nothing but dreams.”
Umberto Eco, The Name of the Rose (Everyman's Library

L.M. Montgomery
“There is such a place as fairyland - but only children can find the way to it. And they do not know that it is fairyland until they have grown so old that they forget the way. One bitter day, when they seek it and cannot find it, they realize what they have lost; and that is the tragedy of life. On that day the gates of Eden are shut behind them and the age of gold is over. Henceforth they must dwell in the common light of common day. Only a few, who remain children at heart, can ever find that fair, lost path again; and blessed are they above mortals. They, and only they, can bring us tidings from that dear country where we once sojourned and from which we must evermore be exiles. The world calls them its singers and poets and artists and story-tellers; but they are just people who have never forgotten the way to fairyland.”
L.M. Montgomery, The Story Girl

Raymond Carver
“Woke up this morning with a terrific urge to lie in bed all day and read.”
Raymond Carver

L.M. Montgomery
“Don't be led away by those howls about realism. Remember-pine woods are just as real as pigsties and a darn sight pleasanter to be in.”
Lucy Maud Montgomery, Emily of New Moon
