Reading notes, week 13

April 2: Thrones, Dominations by Dorothy L. Sayers and Jill Paton Walsh. Completeness reread. Parts of it are excellent, and I see a couple of things I hadn’t noticed before (especially characterization; I wonder if this is Sayers or Walsh). For some reason it’s a very slow read this time, even when I sit down

March 24: A Presumption of Death by (Dorothy L. Sayers and) Jill Paton Walsh. I know almost for certain that Sayers only laid the groundwork in The Wimsey Papers, and Walsh did all of the writing. It’s okay writing, though, good fanfic [1], unlike The Attenbury Emeralds which annoys me more every time I reread

March 17: Busman’s Honeymoon by Dorothy Sayers. So-manyth reread. Spotted a tiny continuity error: somewhere at the beginning, Lord Peter is on a windowsill with a cat and when he gets up the cat leaves in a huff, jumping out of sight, and not much later he retrieves his blazer from under the cat. (Though,

March 11: The Great Ghost Rescue by Eva Ibbotson. Fluff with a bite. March 11: Tiles on the Roof by Avatar_Vyakara. Long (but consisting of many tiny stories) Encanto fanfic. Recommendation from a friend, hard to stop reading (open in a browser tab most of the time to dip into in between doing other things).

Reading notes, week 9

March 4: Ask Miss Mott by E. Phillips Oppenheim. First read it in July 2020. Still good comfort reading. I especially like the Florence story. All Seasons and their Change by tsukara. “Scenes from the first of the next fifty years for Janet and her earthly scholar.” Cute and thoughtful Janet/Thomas. Adaptive Coloration: Four Identities

Dear Worldbuilding writer,

Hi, I’m sinkauli on ao3. Here you can see my works and my bookmarks, and this blog here is full of my reading notes. I’m reposting last year’s worldbuildingex letter with some fandom-specific changes and additions. Please assume “any or no characters” and “original character(s)” for all fandoms so I don’t need to repeat that

Reading notes, week 52

Yuletide is here, SO MUCH FANFIC. I’ll make a rec post after author reveal so I won’t have to look up everything again (not that I won’t want to reread it, but perhaps not all at once). December 30: Passage by bigsunglasses. Novelette-length Goblin Emperor fanfic, wonderful budding friendship between Idra Drazhar and Paru Tethimin.

Reading notes, week 48

Currently reading: Seven Sisters by Celia Lake, #7 of Mysterious Charm. (intermittently, it’s too heady to read all in one go) What If? Serious Scientific Answers to Absurd Hypothetical Questions by Randall Munroe. Exactly what it says on the tin. So much fun. NBV21 – De vertaalmethode toegelicht by Matthijs de Jong and Cor Hoogerwerf.

Reading notes, week 47

November 27: Goblin Fruit by Celia Lake, #2 in the Mysterious Charm series. The protagonist is a supporting character in #6, and it’s nice to read her backstory! Spouse said to skip the sex scenes, but there were only two (and a half, one was in a dream) and I thought they were okayish (not

Reading notes, week 45

November 13: On recommendation from a Twitter friend, On the Bias by Celia Lake (#6 of the Mysterious Charm series but they can be read in any order). It started so slowly that until about 30% I didn’t even know if I’d continue it (and I have much tolerance for slow!) but by 45% I
