  2. October 22: Waking the Moon by Elizabeth Hand (1994) Quote 1: They never found her. Nothing at all: no clothes, no jewelry, no bones or teeth or locks of auburn hair. Quote 2: By the door the two figures remained still.

  7. October 17: In My Dreams I Hold a Knife by Ashley Winstead (2021) Quote: It turns out the real you is a quilt, made up of the light and the dark. The life you’ve lived in sunshine and your shadow life, stretching underneath the surface of your mind like a deep underwater world, exerting invisible power.

  8. October 16: Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro (2005) Quote: We took away your art because we thought it would reveal your souls. Or to put it more finely, we did it to prove you had souls at all. View the full post.
  9. October 15: The Truly Devious Series by Maureen Johnson (2018-2021) Quote from Truly Devious (2018): It was, in short, idyllic and fantastical, and may have remained as such had it not been for that foggy night in April 1936 when Truly Devious struck.

  14. October 11: Legendborn by Tracy Deonn (2020) Quote: That memorial over at the Arboretum is the pretty acknowledgement, the polite one. But the blood? The blood’s buried here. View the full post.
  15. October 10: This Is Not a Test by Courtney Summers (2012) Quote 1: We eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner to the soundtrack of our own impending death. Quote 2: Sometimes you catch something specific like the screams and cries of people trying to hold on to each other before they’re swallowed into other, bigger noises.
