The magic is only in what books say, how they stitched the patches of the universe together into one garmenr for us.

A Gatlin Wedding | Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl

Every battle you have fought is with you still.
Every enemy you have defeated stands behind you.
You are Bound as you have always been Bound, to those who came before and those who will come after.
To those you loved and those you hated.
You are stronger than you think.

A Gatlin Wedding | Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl

Because the Wheel of Fate has a way of wrecking everything it ever rolls past. And now we‘re all just left to sort out the pieces, to pretend this is how it was always supposed to be.

American Gods Anansi Boys | Neil Gaiman, Barnes & Noble, HarperCollins Publishers Ltd. Staff, Barnes & Noble Staff, HarperCollins (Firm)

People believe, thought Shadow. It‘s what people do. They believe. And then they will not take responsibility for their beliefs; they conjure things, and do not trust the conjurations. People populate the darkness; with ghosts, with gods, with electrons, with tales. People imagine, and people believe: and it is that belief, that rock-solid belief, that makes things happen.

My daughter got me into this series, when she knew I was reading this book she told me that Annabeth reminded her of me so much. After reading this book I feel stronger than wonder woman. Getting at last the pov of Annabeth and her fears and wits made me glad. She is everything I expected and more. Loved this book so much.

At last we know what happened to Percy! This crossover from Rick Riordan is incredible. Can't believe I waited so long to try this series.

Momma_Jo Same!!!! Loved the original Percy Jackson series and I even found that one late too!!! Better to enjoy it late then never to have enjoyed it at all. 4y
HCBB True that! I just love the crossover with the Roman gods. Enjoy! 4y

Reading this was coming back to a world I love. The roman aspect of the gods. Greek and roman mixed in a great way. Love Riordan for the exquisite way of creating a new way of enjoying the myths.

Hard to follow in the story at times. The art is just stunning and the whole backstory is interesting. Can't wait to continue this story.

I'm so happy! @teebe thank you so much! I loved everything! Can't wait to read my books! The paper flower was just the best part of my gift!

Loved the Harry Potter candle. I am never lighting that up! I am keeping it forever! Thank you for all the thought and love you put into my gift!

Thanks to @BookishMarginalia for organizing such a wonderful experience.

CouronneDhiver I spot some 🇨🇦 gifts! Woohoo 5y
teebe Yay! I'm glad you like everything, hope you enjoy the Wicked & the Divine. I'm most curious about how you'll like the treats... many people have told me Canadian candy seems sweeter than others. 5y
Carleneishere Ah, smarties! My favorite candy but they're no where to be found here in the US (edited) 5y
