Book cover for The Stone Sky (The Broken Earth, #3)
But there are none so frightened, or so strange in their fear, as conquerors. They conjure phantoms endlessly, terrified that their victims will someday do back what was done to them—even if, in truth, their victims couldn’t care less about ...more

Loving the Secret Billionaire by Adriana Anders

Clear rating
This is a terrible title for a sweet, short love story between a fiery teacher running for city council (I have to admit she was basically AOC in my head) and a blind recluse financial whiz/white-hat hacker.

Reichl is an excellent writer - evocative, clever, and fairly insightful. She always makes me hungry, too.

A seriously creepy novella set on early Laconia. A good intro to Tiamat’s Wrath!

This one picks up on threads from the last few books, and really shows Mercy at her best, as far as I was concerned. In the midst of arranging a meeting between the Fae and the US government, Mercy and the pack find themselves fighting off an incursi ...more

“What was a book? Not just ink and fiber and stitchery: a series of processes. To a wizard, it was not a static object--but a human thought caught and bound, made concrete through sacred technology. Magic, then, and a deep form of it.”
Elizabeth Bear, Shattered Pillars

Kurt Vonnegut
“Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies--: God damn it, you've got to be kind.”
Kurt Vonnegut

Helen Macdonald
“Have you ever seen a hawk catch a bird in your back garden? I’ve not, but I know it’s happened. I’ve found evidence. Out on the patio flagstones, sometimes, tiny fragments: a little, insect-like songbird leg, with a foot clenched tight where the sinews have pulled it; or – even more gruesomely – a disarticulated beak, a house-sparrow beak top, or bottom, a little conical bead of blushed gunmetal, slightly translucent, with a few faint maxillary feathers adhering to it. But maybe you have: maybe you’ve glanced out of the window and seen there, on the lawn, a bloody great hawk murdering a pigeon, or a blackbird, or a magpie, and it looks the hugest, most impressive piece of wildness you’ve ever seen, like someone’s tipped a snow leopard into your kitchen and you find it eating the cat.”
Helen Macdonald, H Is for Hawk

Laila Lalami
“In Arabic, the name Guadalajara evoked a valley of stones, a valley my ancestors had settled more than eight hundred years earlier. They had carried the disease of empire to Spain, the Spaniards had brought it to the new continent, and someday the people of the new continent would plant it elsewhere. That was the way of the world.”
Laila Lalami, The Moor's Account
