Outrun the Moon

Tragedy can give the pot a good shake, not only causing the good bits in us to float to the surface, but the nasty bits, too. Maybe it’s better to skim off the nasty parts and let them go. I read Stacey Lee’s Under a Painted Sky and found it extremely entertaining and well-written, so… Read More Outrun the Moon

In… Read More The Star-Touched Queen

A Little in Love

And perhaps I live too and always will, for love is the strongest thing of all—and love never dies, never dies. A Little in Love is a retelling of Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables from the perspective of Eponine. The result is an emotional and beautifully written novel that will stay with you long after you… Read More A Little in Love
