Sometimes books have lines you don’t ever forgot, even if you never finish the book. I haven’t finished The Traitor Baru Cormorant by Seth Dickinson. But I read this line days and days ago and I find myself thinking of it at odd moments. “You. None of these men have husbands. They hate husbands.” She… Continue reading Lines You Don’t Forget: The Traitor Baru Cormorant

I just started Ink and Bone and so far it sounds pretty good!

His divine wisdom can kiss my common arse. We blind and hobble half of the world through such ignorance, and I will not have it. Women shall study at the Serapeum as they might be inclined. Let him execute me if he wishes, but I have seen enough of minds wasted in this world. I have a daughter.

My daughter will learn.
