“We are fish in a bowl, dear,” Tsukiko tells her, cigarette holder dangling precariously from her lips “very carefully monitored fish. Watched from all angles. If one of us floats to the top, it was not accidental. And if it was an accident, I worry that the watchers are not as careful as they should be.”
This afternoon I finished The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern (let me just say – AMAZING! I was so into the ending that I got off the bus and sat on the bus stop bench to finish 🙂 I will write a review soon, but as I loved this book so much I don’t want to rush it).
As it is Free Pick February, and The Night Circus is one of my books, I was pyched to choose a new read from the Books-I-Own-But-Have-Yet-To-Read pile since it it the largest (at 18 strong) and there is a bunch i’m dying to read.
While I was walking home from the bus stop with The Night Circus tucked lovingly under my arm one book popped into my head, maybe because I posted my Top 10 Classics I Want to Read so recently, but as soon as I got home I decided that I will finally read To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee 😀
“A werewolf who fights with a sword and dagger” he said “is as unnatural as a dog who eats with a knife and fork.”
