“’Morning falls on the just and the unjust,’ I observe, and the nurse smiles politely and continues brushing my hair.”
-Brother to Dragons, Companion to Owls by Jane Lindskold

The story of a young woman brought up in an asylum and suddenly thrown onto the streets, Brother to Dragons, Companion to Owls is a refreshing novel that explores magic, insanity, and crime in an interesting fashion.
Sarah, the protagonist of the novel, can communicate only through quoting works of fiction, and only those passages which stand out in her mind. This defect, coupled with a mysterious ability to talk with inanimate objects, makes her story one worth reading. 
But, be warned, it does have some fairly dark themes related to treatment of the mentally ill and prostitution. 
My Rating: 6.5/10 
If you find it at a local library, check it out and see what you think. But do not buy it unless you already know that it is something you’d enjoy.

Naples today! Gay Odin, we love the logo, the lettering, the chocolate!! The brainchild of Isidoro Odin, a Piedmontese confectioner of Swiss origin, and his wife Onorina Gay, this workshop has given life to many confectioners’ shops in the literary café areas of Naples, Rome and Milan. Adored by Oscar Wilde during his contested stay in Naples in 1897, by the poet di Giacomo and by Eduardo De Filippo, the star of Neapolitan comedy. Renovated in 1922 in a perfect, free Liberty style. The floral window, mahogany furnishings, machines and recipes date from the early twentieth century. by italianfelicity // via Instagram http://ift.tt/1qKSxER

This was quite possibly the best chocolate I ever had, and the store was tucked away in a little street in Naples. I had no idea it had such a wonderful history!
