The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
" I think the upcoming Hulu show will really highlight this book's eerie relevancy in today's world as much as it did the 1980's. "
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood
" I'm still trying to process everything I feel about this book. It will stick with you, make you question the world you live in, and as a woman the rights you hold. Although written in the 1980's it's a tail suited to today's political climate."

“When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes.”
Erasmus

Sue Monk Kidd
“Place a beehive on my grave
And let the honey soak through.
When I'm dead and gone,
That's what I want from you.
The streets of heaven are gold and sunny,
But I'll stick with my plot and a pot of honey.
Place a beehive on my grave
And let the honey soak through.”
Sue Monk Kidd, The Secret Life of Bees

Diane Setterfield
“I have eavesdropped with impunity on the lives of people who do not exist. I have peeped shamelessly into hearts and bathroom closets. I have leaned over shoulders to follow the movements of quills as they write love letters, wills and confessions. I have watched as lovers love, murderers murder and children play their make-believe. Prisons and brothels have opened their doors to me; galleons and camel trains have transported me across sea and sand; centuries and continents have fallen away at my bidding. I have spied upon the misdeeds of the mighty and witnessed the nobility of the meek. I have bent so low over sleepers in their beds that they might have felt my breath on their faces. I have seen their dreams.”
Diane Setterfield, The Thirteenth Tale
