I just started this, but I can already tell it‘s something I‘ll be thinking about for a while.

Vicious was a fascinating read, albeit dark and gory.

Maybe the battles of life are best fought without armor and without weapons.

Reading in a hammock- maybe the best way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Lucy Knisley is a delight. I wish we were friends, but every time I finish one of her graphic novels, I feel like we are already.

I'm a member of two book clubs, which is pushing me to read more. This month I get a special treat, reading one of my favorite books. It's my favorite sort of story, one where everything has a certain way that it "should be", and a young woman looks at the expectations and chooses her own path. She decides that fencing and magic are exactly what a Princess does, because she is a princess. And who else is going to save the kingdom?

One of the most enjoyable books I've read lately. The first person narrative was well done, with a very organic style of jumping from memory to memory to tell a story of love and creation and politics and humanity. Distinctly NOT a young adult novel, even though that's how it was initially described by a friend.

'Let's set a course'- at this point the Pirate Captain paused in what he hoped would be dramatic and exciting fashion- 'for adventure!'
The crew just gave him a bit of a collective blank look. The Pirate Captain sighed.
'All right,' he said with a bit of a pout, 'south.'

BookFreakOut Hiiiii! So excited to see you here! @Jediash1 is on here too. 😁 5y
