Quote of the Day

Image
"Sometimes bad shit happens, and you have to protect the people you love," Leon said. "it would be nice if you can do that and keep your hands clean, but life doesn't work that way. Life is messy, and sometimes you must do what needs to be done to keep your family safe. It doesn't make you a bad person."
I'd have to thank Kurt.
"One day some other Prime will threaten our House, and when that day comes, I'll kill him."
What?
"I'll do it quiet and clean, and nobody will ever know." Leon smiled. "I'm going to be a dark horse, the House Baylor's secret. I'll be the best assassin. A legend. They'll never see me coming."
I would kill Kurt. I would strangle him with my bare hands.

“To know what a person has done, and to know who a person is, are very different things.”

Quote of the Day

Image
There are seven billion of us on this earth, and we are all different. But one thing is clear: humans excel at using our differences as excuses to act like assholes and torment one another. It is highly unfortunate that we use these innate, integral, and often uncontrollable things to mistreat others. We have created rigid, yet often invisible, systems that keep some people at the top, on the backs of others at the bottom, based on their identity markers. And we refuse to fix these systems of inequality because being at the top of the food chain is the place to be, so who would want to lose those perks? The air up there is so nice, who cares about those in the gutter?

New to Me Series in 2017

Image
2017 has meant a whole lot of new series to discover. Heavy on the fantasy side of book genres, it's been a great year for uncovering so gems and other series that felt more so-so.  A couple of series Incryptid by Seanan McGuire and Lady Julia Grey by Deanna Raybourn are books I've been meaning to try for years. Others, such as Cork O'Connor by William Kent Krueger and Draconis Memoria by Anthony Ryan weren't even on my radar until this year.

What new series have I discovered this year?


Quote of the Day

“Somewhere between us hating each other back then, you became my first real friend, my first and only best friend, and I didn’t realize it until last summer, but you’ve actually been my first everything.” “You were my first kiss, my first date that I actually enjoyed, and the first woman I fell in love with—the first woman I actually made love to...” he said. “And you’re still the only person I can talk to twenty times a day—whether it’s via letter, email, text, or phone call, and still feel like it’s not enough.” Sincerely, Arizonaby Whitney G.
