Trying to get back into the swing of reading again. This book sounds interesting: http://enchantedinkpot.livejournal.com/108455.html

Cat and mouse game with potential for romance in dystopian future? I could do with some of that.

It's so funny because it's sad and true.

Ok, people that are complaining that Sherlock lost out to Downton Abbey?

I liked the BBC Sherlock series, but Downton Abbey was consistently good throughout seven episodes.

Sherlock only had three eps and USED ONE OF THEM TO MAKE THE RACIST EPIC!FAIL THAT WAS BLIND BANKER.

For once, an awards show got it right.

Major changes coming to be my life again, but I wanted to make a post about The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making. This is the book I've been looking forward to close to a YEAR, partly because the conception of this book is really cool, and partly because this is a book that's pretty much written for me.

The author started this book as an internet thing; she posted a chapter a week and you could donate via paypal if you wanted. It went on to win a major lit award, and now it's in hardcover with beautiful illustrations.

It's a fairy tale, but not exactly a retelling. But it knows the language and tropes and culture of fairy tales, and well, I love fairy tales. I have made it through some very very bad retellings just because they were based on a fairy tale. And this? This story was sublime.

If you didn't read it when it was online, I strongly rec it.

(I'm still in the middle of Deathless, by the same author, which is a retold fairy tale. So far, I'd say it's worth checking out too.)

There are some stories you read that stay with you.

Everyone has their favorite DWJ book, mine's the first one of hers I picked up "Howl's Moving Castle". I can quote passages from it even now. Sometimes you outgrow your childhood favorites, but her books always stood the test of time for me.

I can't believe I'm never going to get to pick up a new release from her again. She was inspiring; in a world where it seems some new hot author is getting pushed every month, I took comfort from the fact that she didn't get published until she was a grandmother.

Losing a favorite author is such a odd sadness. I didn't know her really.

But I read her words and her thoughts and her worldview seeped into her stories. So in a way, I did, and I mourn her like a lost friend.
