Quote of the Day

“We are not going to die."

Butters stared up at me, pale, his eyes terrified. "We're not?"

"No. And do you know why?" He shook his head. "Because Thomas is too pretty to die. And because I'm too stubborn to die." I hauled on the shirt even harder. "And most of all because tomorrow is Oktoberfest, Butters, and polka will never die.”

Quote of the Day

I've always known what you need. Someone to rage at who's strong enough to take all the pain and fury you have to dish out until you've burned it out of your system and nothing is left but a pile of ashes from which the Phoenix rises. Kid, woman, whatever the hell you are--I want to see you rise. Even if you have to hate me.

To Hell & Back

By Olga the Awesome.

Phew, readers. It's been a hell of a ride. It took me a while to decompress after Fevercon in NOLA. But here I am, ready to talk about Feversong and tell you why you should be reading it. And loving it. And crying with me. 

In case you need a recap, read my Burned review here, and Feverborn review here, and spoilery discussion here. And then dive in and let's talk Feversong

It'll be okay!
There will be no main plot spoilers in this review! At most a few mildly spoilery quotes that won't give anything away. I'm saving that goodness for our super spoilery discussion coming very soon!

Quote of the Day

No, staying in the Zone wasn't easy. But for a lot of us-- certainly for me-- it was the only option. I'd rather make do in New Orleans than be rich anywhere else.

“A succubus on the set. Strike that, the health-conscious kid sister made it two… succubuses. Succubusees? Succubi? Stupid Latin correspondence course.”

Quote of the Day

"Reason never works. There's an inherent bias in the system. The attacker has the offense, which makes the defense appear defensive, therefore guilty. "

Quote of the Day

“I love you, Ethan, and I love this city. And however much I fought, I love this goddamn House. It's part of me, and I'm part of it. I'm not going to stand here and watch a man tear down everything that you've build. I'm not. And if that means I have to chase another man who threatens this House, or apologize to you more than I like, so be it. I don't want that, but I can live with it. Because I can't live without you.”

Quote of the Day

"Entering a novel is like going on a climb in the mountains: 
you have to learn the rhythm of respiration, acquire the pace; otherwise you stop right away."

Quote of the Day

"I guess I make things that need energy stronger. I'm like a walking battery."
"You are the table everyone wants at Starbucks," Gansey mused as he began to walk again.
Blue blinked. "What?"
Over his shoulder, Gansey said, "Next to the wall plug."
