Rules: In a text post, list ten books that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” or “great” works, just the ones that have touched you. Tag ten people, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let them know you’ve tagged them.
midnight in the garden of good and evil
a series of unfortunate events (the whole series)
the habitation of the blessed
chronicle of a death foretold
alice’s adventures in wonderland (and i have to say through the looking-glass, too, don’t i?)
“Witches, like saints, are solitary stars that shine with a light of their own; they depend on nothing and no one, which is why they have no fear and plunge blindly into the abyss with the assurance that instead of crashing to earth, they will fly back out. They can change into birds and see the world from above, or worms to see it from within, they can inhabit other dimensions and travel to other galaxies, they are navigators on an infinite ocean of consciousness and cognition.”—Isabel Allende - Paula (via melaniealeman)
