Reading notes, week 36

September 6: The Grand Tour by Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer. I read this one for Lady Sylvia Schofield as much as for the story (and the other characters). I’d so like a whole book about Lady Sylvia! (She’s briefly in this story of mine. My headcanon has her played by Helen Mirren.) September

Reading notes, week 35

August 28: Searching for Dragons by Patricia C. Wrede. #2 of the Enchanted Forest Chronicles. As good as the first one (though Goodreads reviewers seem to think it’s not, but apparently they don’t read closely enough to get Mendanbar’s name right anyway). It’s got a lot of Morwen! And a no-nonsense king! I don’t even

Reading notes, week 29

July 24: Sorcery and Cecelia by Patricia C. Wrede and Caroline Stevermer. Comfort reading with guaranteed no steamy sex scenes. (I have a very old copy that I bought in Canada in 1998, and changed the cover of my ebook to a photo of the cover of that copy, because it’s SO much better than

Reading notes, week 18

May 2: So You Want to Be a Wizard, because I already had it open and noticed it while I was looking for some fanfic to read while cooling down from One Good Knight. Young Wizards is always a nice comfort read, and it might give me enough circumstance to finish the space meerkat story.

April 4: Some Lord Peter Wimsey fanfic, on fanfiction.net this time, which feels like betrayal. But this is a good story about Charles and Mary in which Mary does some of the detecting. (Also found one I liked that happened to be on my ereader already.) April 3: Stone by Alter S. Reiss, the long

What I did at Worldcon: Saturday

First thing at breakfast I got some lingonberry juice on my dress. Fortunately it was a red dress (my ordinary red dress, not yesterday’s velvet), so it didn’t show. Later, at the station, we saw a door that was pretending to be the other gender. Disclaimer: we don’t know what genders doors can be. (And

What I did at Worldcon: Thursday

SQUEEING WITH CAPSLOCK EXCLAMATIONS OF SQUEE! Because I got to meet my absolute favourite author (Caroline Stevermer) and she turned out to be a nice normal woman who I have even more in common with than I already thought. She looks almost exactly like someone I know in church, so much that I thought “what

Rereading A College of Magics

Caroline Stevermer, A College of Magics I love this book to pieces. The copy I have is falling to pieces, and I may soon have to replace it with a hardback to go with its sequel, A Scholar of Magics. If it’s still in print, that is. (Or get an e-reader at last and try
