“Name one hero who was happy.”

Under the Whispering Door by T.J. Klune

Where the Drowned Girls Go // Seanan McGuire

“I never wanted to be a hero, but that doesn’t mean I’ll let you turn me into a villain”

“This is a world without heroes. And you’re here.”

Vespertine // Margaret Rogerson

“If there’s one thing I can always rely upon, it’s the reassuring dependability of human idiocy. Give your kind a century or so, and they’ll happily repeat the exact same mistakes that nearly wiped them all out a few generations before.”

A Dowry of Blood // S.T. Gibson

“You liked me best when I was like an oil painting; perfectly arranged and silent.”

  1. Love the SoA quotes. That first one especially hits hard! I’m also really keen to pick up Vespertine now as I’ve seen a few quotes from the book today and I get curiouser each time I see one!
