The Young Elites by Marie Lu

The Young Elites by Marie Lu

I go bananas for books featuring female characters with agency. I go crazy for stories where the heroine’s story is her own, and she isn’t immediately (or at any point of the journey) chasing after a male stud.

An April Night by Lucy Maud Montgomery The moon comes up o’er the deeps of the woods, And the long, low dingles that hide in the hills, Where the ancient beeches are moist with buds Over the pools and the whimpering rills; And with her the mists, like dryads that creep From their oaks, or … Continue reading

So it’s always a thrill to see others ‘fangirl’ over their classic stories, and witness how this storytelling power duo inspire new creative work, whether it’s poetry, fiction, or film. Recently, The Huffington Post featured a German photographer, Kilian Schönberger, whose childhood in the misty, dark woods … Continue reading
