I am out with lanterns, looking for myself Emily Dickinson What’s a quote that’s been on your mind lately?

“If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again, there is no use in reading it at all.” ― Oscar Wilde Do you agree? Disagree?
“It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live.” ― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Philospher’s Stone I really loved the artwork on this version, plus this was the original title.

All my life they had made choices for me, and I had resented it. Now the choice was mine, and once it was made, I would have no right to blame anyone else for the consequences.

Abosultely hilarious! This book has witty characters, great fast-paced dialogue (with some real zingers!). I highly recommend giving this a read! I’d read Arabella by Georgette Heyer before and didn’t really like it, it was a little slow…just okay in my opinion. This story however is much better and she almost feels like a different writer. The… Continue reading The Grand Sophy | Book Review
