I'm a big Jane Austen fan! Pride and Prejudice is my favorite (That's why I named my daughter Elizabeth!), with Emma, Persuasion and Sense and Sensibility in a three-way tie for third. ;) But I do also love Dickens, Oscar Wilde, John Donne, George Elliot (My favorite sentence ever from Middlemarch: “If we had a keen vision and feeling of all ordinary human life, it would be like hearing the grass grow and the squirrel's heart beat, and we should die of that roar which lies on the other side of silence.”), and F. Scott Fitzgerald (I still need to go see the Gatsby movie.)

The Unfinished Song (Book 1): Initiate by Tara Maya



Dindi can't do anything right, maybe because she spends more time dancing with pixies than doing her chores. Her clan hopes to marry her off and settle her down, but she dreams of becoming a Tavaedi, one of the powerful warrior-dancers whose secret magics are revealed only to those who pass a mysterious Test during the Initiation ceremony. The problem? No-one in Dindi's clan has ever passed the Test. Her grandmother died trying. But Dindi has a plan.

Kavio is the most powerful warrior-dancer in Faearth, but when he is exiled from the tribehold for a crime he didn't commit, he decides to shed his old life. If roving cannibals and hexers don't kill him first, this is his chance to escape the shadow of his father's wars and his mother's curse. But when he rescues a young Initiate girl, he finds himself drawn into as deadly a plot as any he left behind. He must decide whether to walk away or fight for her... assuming she would even accept the help of an exile.

The Wizard of Oz cover makes me laugh. The Anne of Green Gables cover makes me cry.
