"It seems like Harpies = Furies, almost. Except Furies seem to have more of a purpose....

AND ALSO! Tamora Piece’s Stormwings in the Tortallan universe seem like a type of these creepy bird ladies :D Awesome."

Reckoning of Fallen Gods by R.A. Salvatore
"Child of a Mad God was one of the best books I read last year, so this sequel was very high up on my 2019 priority list.

Reckoning of Fallen Gods almost suffered from middle-book syndrome, but the writing is so good that the slight lack of focus di..." Read more of this review »

Theogony and Works and Days by Hesiod

Interesting in places, with the right supplemental materials. M. L. West's introduction helps. I wouldn't start with this, though, if you're just getting into mythology; too many genealogies. Literally half of Theogony is lists of names of gods and g ...more

Once & Future by Amy Rose Capetta
"Ok, so this book was hilarious. I had a stupid grin on my face the entire time. I was literally laughing out loud while reading, a very rare thing for me.

And maybe that was the problem?

This book was extremely funny and I absolutely loved that. I a..." Read more of this review »

Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan

Clear rating
Hilarious! A Cinderella story with a modern twist. I love how the materialistic atmosphere (normally symbolized by Cinderella's step mom and sisters) instead characterizes so many of the rich characters--as opposed to our hero and heroine, of course. ...more

Mark Twain
“I didn't have time to write a short letter, so I wrote a long one instead.”
Mark Twain

J.R.R. Tolkien
“I have claimed that Escape is one of the main functions of fairy-stories, and since I do not disapprove of them, it is plain that I do not accept the tone of scorn or pity with which 'Escape' is now so often used. Why should a man be scorned if, finding himself in prison, he tries to get out and go home? Or if he cannot do so, he thinks and talks about other topics than jailers and prison-walls?”
J.R.R. Tolkien

Groucho Marx
“Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.”
Groucho Marx

Stephen King
“If you expect to succeed as a writer, rudeness should be the second-to-least of your concerns. The least of all should be polite society and what it expects. If you intend to write as truthfully as you can, your days as a member of polite society are numbered, anyway.”
Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft

Madeleine L'Engle
“At Tara in this fateful hour,
I place all Heaven with its power,
And the sun with its brightness,
And the snow with its whiteness,
And the fire with all the strength it hath,
And the lightning with its rapid wrath,
And the winds with their swiftness along their path,
And the sea with its deepness,
And the rocks with their steepness,
And the earth with its starkness:
All these I place,
By God's almighty help and grace
Between myself and the powers of darkness!”
Madeleine L'Engle, A Swiftly Tilting Planet
