quotes Gail likes

“Someone was trying to kill Lady Alexia Maccon. It was most inconvenient, as she was in a dreadful hurry. Given her previous familiarity with near-death experiences and their comparative frequency with regards to her good self, Alexia should probably have allowed extra time for such a predictable happenstance.” —Gail Carriger


  1. I thought of Anne immediately when reading your last post. Love it!

  2. I remember reading Anne of Green Gables' books growing up and I could not figure out why she was so obsessed with puffy sleeves! :)

  3. about the sleeve supports: i always though it was the way they were made that gave them that shape. i suppose it is, in part, but it's mostly the supports.
