The Maerlande Chronicles | Elisabeth Vonarburg
Pickpick

i found this book randomly digging around in a used bookstore and bought it based on the Le Guin blurb. I ADORED IT. it has some of the scholarly feel of Susannah Clarke's work, plus the transgressive imagination of Margaret Atwood's. i am just obsessed. turns out it's actually a sequel, and i already ordered THE SILENT CITY, cannot wait to read it.

in its playfulness with mythology and folklore and also the tropes of its genre (magical YA), VASSA reminded me of Cat Valente's GIRL WHO series -- it delivers a romp that satisfies, while also turning all those tropes topsy turvy. a girl who saves herself while still being a selfish, messed-up teen; so enjoyable.

it isn't often that you get a fantasy novel about sisterhood and camaraderie among women, as well as monsters and bloody bargains and political upheaval. definitely one for fans of female-forward fantasy.

this is one of those novels about marriage that manages to be very quiet and INCREDIBLY TENSE at the same time. Kitamura takes us into the tangle of thoughts and feelings that make up a troubled relationship, and does it with wit and heart

Tombs of Atuan | Ursula K Le Guin
post image

What she had begun to learn was the weight of liberty. Freedom is a heavy load, a great and strange burden for the spirit to undertake. It is not easy. It is not a gift given, but a choice made, and the choice may be a hard one. The road goes upwards towards the light; but the laden traveler may never reach the end of it.
