Quote of the Day

We were both quiet in the aftermath, at a loss because it was at once beautiful and scary--beautiful because when we were together, we were whole and complete, and scary because we knew there was no turning back. We were too fat gone to take any of it back.

My 2018 Reading List (So Far)

Image
I’m looking forward to a busy and exciting year of reading in 2018. First, I’m intrigued by some of the Wench Books of the Month scheduled throughout the year. I’m halfway through the first one as I write this — The Woman in the Window — and riveted by the mystery and suspense. I am a complete sucker for a good thriller with an unreliable narrator!

There’s also an assortment of books awaiting my attention on my e-reader, and I’d like to tell you about the ones I’m most interested in right now. The list is still heavy with my last-year’s favorite dystopian, post-apocalyptic themes and complex fantasy worlds. But there’s room for the occasional thriller or literary work completely unrelated to my usual fare, and some rereads of old favorites, and I’m delighted that PNR/UF is making a bit of a comeback for me!

As excited as I am about this list, I should mention that I can’t promise I’ll stick strictly to it. Because I can be a bit fickle, easily distracted, and shamelessly susceptible…

Quote of the Day

I knew the child. I know the woman. She'll never be satisfied with a single lover. ~She~ craves experience, challenge, change, tempering, growth. She needs to taste it all. I understand that.

One day she'll choose a mate. She'll hunger to be a wolf running with a wolf of her own at her side, equals in everything, and when that time comes, she'll need to know she's chosen the absolute best.

I am that man.

But she has no basis for comparison.

She'll give her virginity to <spoiler>. Soon. She's on fire.

She wears my brand.

I'll feel far too much of it. This time and every time.

Immortal though I am--if I survive the next week--the coming years might seem my most eternal yet.

I will never be her first.

But one day I'll be her last.
