Reading The Haunting of Hill House felt in many aspects very similar to reading other Shirley Jackson’s novels, but I’m not saying that as a negative thing: the atmosphere is fantastic! But unfortunately I found it sometimes difficult to follow the s ...more

4,5/5
Getting to spend over 400 pages with Anne Valente’s characters was such a treat – I’m so impressed at how real they feel in short stories, and in a novel format you can get so much more out of them, especially the characters of The Desert Sky Be

3,5/5
There’s no denying it: I’m addicted to Juliet Marillier’s books and even though the story in Seer of Sevenwaters is not as good as in the ten other novels I’ve read from her so far, I couldn’t stop reading. I think the Sevenwaters books work bet

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

John Green
“So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane.”
John Green, Looking for Alaska

John Irving
“We are formed by what we desire”
John Irving, In One Person

Jane Austen
“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! -- When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.”
Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

J.K. Rowling
“Of course it is happening inside your head, Harry, but why on earth should that mean that it is not real?”
J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
