Jackaby | William Ritter
post image

It was difficult to believe that it had been only a handful of hours since I had plucked Jackaby's posting from the board next door. That little slip of paper had turned out to be my ticket into a more remarkable world than I could have imagined.

The Belles | Dhonielle Clayton
post image

"DON'T DO ANYTHING UNTIL WE SPEAK.

I slip it into a privacy case, tuck it into the balloon's interior compartment, adjust the tiny golden compass, and send the palace-official post-balloon off the balcony. I watch as until its lilac body disappears in the dark."

I used to write my fair share of letters to far flung friends but have fallen out of the habit as of late. I would like to think that sending a post-balloon would entice more letters.

Beneath The Truth | Meghan March

*I looked around the room as thought someone else could confirm but there was no one. What does he have planned?
*Was that moan bouncing off the walls mine? Why yes, yes it was.

The internal thougt process that Megan March gives Ariel cracks me up!

More background on what happened in Helsinki and how Ferdinand started at Dyad and how MK became MK. Stepping back in time to see how the clones started to piece it all together was nice. Unlike the show they can't just Google whatever they wanted, dial up internet was a pain!

Giant Days Vol. 4 | John Allison
post image
Pickpick

Review:
Such a balance between these lovely ladies. Keeping up with Susan and her turbulent ride through Tinder dating and Esther's money problems is entertainment enough. But Daisy and the things she ends up in always crack me up.
Quotes and snippets:
"Sisters before sisters, ester. Boys stink and are gross. Don't fall for their tricks."

Maddalena had been half listening while trying to recall how the Vivaldi's violin had sounded and remembering his wink.....Chiaretta said. "Her sister's in a convent already. There's enough for one dowry, and the parents chose Antonia to be the one who marries. They think she's the smartest and the healthiest that's why."
"What did her sister think?"
" I don't know. Antonio didn't say. Her parents decided for her."
P.80

The Lost Girl | Sangu Mandanna

"She falls and starts to howl. Her father leans down and kisses her knee and wheedles a laugh out of her. And for no reason at all it makes me think of the Weaver who made me. Of how he will never pick me up when I fall.
I want to be human so badly it hurts."

It's about the journey. Some of us learn that later than others.
