This series remains relevant even 20 years after I first cracked open the spine on a whim because I thought the princess was wearing a sweet dress. Cimorene became a heroine to me, someone to follow and model myself after as I grew older. I don't think I realized until recently just how much I internalized her indeoendence and pragmatic nature. These books have become a cornerstone of my literary identity and I am so grateful for Wrede's work.

I've been highlighting away in the new Dessa #memoir, and now the entire book looks like a rainbow. If you're a fan of her work with Doomtree, or her collaborations with Lin-Manuel Miranda, or of her solo music, this is a must-read. #glorytotheguild #music #rap #minnesota

After the Wedding | Courtney Milan

This book raised my expectations not just for the romance genre, but for historical fiction writers on the whole. Courtney Milan has always focused on stories of unheard or silenced people, casting narratives to provide justice and compassion. This one is no different. It goes beyond, demonstrating how people who care for each other should lift each other up and use their privilege for others' benefit. I loved it.

While I tend not to like “woman redeems man” stories, I do love “kick his ass, baby, I‘ll hold your flower” stories, and this book makes you think it‘s in the first category and then BAM it‘s in the second, and it is glorious. #glorytotheguild

Going back through my favorite authors to catch the books I missed first time through, and I was fortunate enough to find MacLean's wonderful first installment in The Rules of Scoundrels. Can‘t wait to dig through this month's #vaginalfantasy pick and my fun reads! #glorytotheguild

Listening to Mallory talk about literary crushes on #ThirstAidKit made me think about my own 5 formative book crushes. SO. 1. Numair, Tamora Pierce‘s Tortall | 2. Corlath, Robin McKinley‘s The Blue Sword | 3. Mendanbar, Patricia C. Wrede‘s Enchanted Forest Chronicles 4. Bran, Susan Cooper‘s The Dark Is Rising Sequence | 5. Remus Lupin, JK Rowling‘s Harry Potter. I miiiiiight have a bit of a shabby loner type thing going on. 😬 #glorytotheguild

ValkyrieAndHerBooks Oh, wow! You just named so many of my formative crushes! Though, George Cooper was always my favorite from the Tortall books! 2y
knm @ValkyrieAndHerBooks George is DEFINITELY up there. He‘s just a little too suave for me to feel comfortable swoony over. *points to the juggling stork man* I want that one. 2y
ValkyrieAndHerBooks Lol, I can give you that! Mischievousness and directness have always been my Achilles heels. 2y
pygmywarrior MENDENBAR! Yes, loved those books and he was just so great. 2y

pygmywarrior I'm reading this with my daughter right now. We just learned about Hagrid's involvement in the Chamber of Secrets 50 years ago. Elizabeth refuses to believe his guilt. 2y
