Sweet. (like, seriously, sugary)

My only grouse is that it isn't free on Kobo while it's free to read on Tor's website.
Had nothing to do with the shadow and bone stories though. You don't need to know Grisha before this short story.

So, Ms Wilson practically strong-armed me into reading this book. Made me put the Nigerian book I was reading on hold for this. And she claims she does not use a refined technological form of Juju.

Well, it seems it was worth it (at the start of my re

"I promised myself not to write any scathing reviews but I've been having a good book year and this book has ruined my flow.... plus maybe KsP [user|26551955] is partly to blame for this

This wacky book! 😅 Been looking for it for years now, a friend was finally able to come up with some clues that helped me locate it here.
No copy on Kobo, but Kindle has it. Downloaded a preview, and boy, was it steamy. I remember it was sexual, I jus

“Nobody ever wrote down a plan to be broke, fat, lazy, or stupid. Those things are what happen when you don’t have a plan.”
Larry Winget

Audre Lorde
“I was going to die, sooner or later, whether or not I had even spoken myself. My silences had not protected me. Your silences will not protect you.... What are the words you do not yet have? What are the tyrannies you swallow day by day and attempt to make your own, until you will sicken and die of them, still in silence? We have been socialized to respect fear more than our own need for language."

I began to ask each time: "What's the worst that could happen to me if I tell this truth?" Unlike women in other countries, our breaking silence is unlikely to have us jailed, "disappeared" or run off the road at night. Our speaking out will irritate some people, get us called bitchy or hypersensitive and disrupt some dinner parties. And then our speaking out will permit other women to speak, until laws are changed and lives are saved and the world is altered forever.

Next time, ask: What's the worst that will happen? Then push yourself a little further than you dare. Once you start to speak, people will yell at you. They will interrupt you, put you down and suggest it's personal. And the world won't end.

And the speaking will get easier and easier. And you will find you have fallen in love with your own vision, which you may never have realized you had. And you will lose some friends and lovers, and realize you don't miss them. And new ones will find you and cherish you. And you will still flirt and paint your nails, dress up and party, because, as I think Emma Goldman said, "If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution." And at last you'll know with surpassing certainty that only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth. And that is not speaking.”
Audre Lorde

“If I didn't define myself for myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive.”
Audre Lorde

Mae West
“Anything worth doing is worth doing slowly.”
Mae West

Muhammad Ali
“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they've been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It's an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It's a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.”
Muhammad Ali
