Reading notes, week 31

by , under books, reading notes

August 7: The Olive Conspiracy by Shira Glassman. Eek! I’d forgotten that it had the whole story of Princess Carolina’s cruelty (or perhaps most of it is cultural cruelty. But still). It’s also got Tales from Perach in the back, except the hilarious one in which Aviva gets kidnapped by aliens (I’ll read that from the separate book which I’ve also got).

August 2: A Harvest of Ripe Figs by Shira Glassman. Yes, this is a complete Mangoverse reread. This may be the one I like best because Esther is awesome, I never liked the villain even when they seemed to be an okay person, and the trans boy is wonderful. (He gets his bodily transition by magic!) (And apparently I fixed that epub already.)

August 1: Climbing the Date Palm by Shira Glassman. The epub is so badly formatted that I’ve been marking every place where lines need to be joined and I’ll fix it in calibre when I get round to it, but that doesn’t detract from the story.
