Reading notes, week 36

September 11: The Mystic Marriage by Heather Rose Jones. (Argh, the reviewer doesn’t get the names right, which is a pet peeve of mine, but the review is otherwise very good.) I’d completely forgotten the gruelling, but ultimately happy ending! And oodles of new fanfic this week, because I discovered a new favourite writer. They

Reading notes, week 35

September 4: Daughter of Mystery by Heather Rose Jones. Time for an Alpennia reread, not the least because I want to nominate it for Yuletide. This week I mostly read fanfic because Crossworks has revealed and I’ve found a couple of new writers I like. (Or rather, writers I newly like; their work goes back

Floodtide

Heather Rose Jones, Floodtide Another splendid Alpennia novel, set alongside Mother of Souls which I mysteriously neglected to review. I read a beta of it and the final version felt much better; I didn’t read the versions side by side but now it’s without a couple of scenes that made me cringe and go “eww,

So many books

There’s much to be said about November, most of it not complimentary, but I did read a lot of mostly wonderful new books. (link forthcoming for The Time Roads, but I think I must reread or at least re-skim it first) One I’d been looking forward to since Heather Rose Jones first talked about it:

Winding down from Worldcon

On Monday afternoon, Heather came to Deventer! Fun was had, touristing was done, yummy food was eaten. The perfect way to wind down from Worldcon gracefully. And because I’m too lazy to write that up as well, you can read Heather’s adventures here. Here’s a double-author selfie we took when she was going away:

What I did at Worldcon: Wednesday

I’m listing things I attended and hanging everything from that, not trying to be in any way coherent. I could technically have gone to a lot more events — I had the time slots — but waiting in line put me off, and sometimes I was in a conversation that I didn’t want to end

The Mystic Marriage

Heather Rose Jones, The Mystic Marriage When I read Daughter of Mystery last year, I first devoured it in big gulps to come back and read it with more attention the second time. This time I had the privilege of beta-reading the book so I’d spent all the initial squee already. That didn’t make it

2014 reading roundup

Preliminary disclaimer: I dislike end-of-year overviews. At least I dislike the circumstance that from, well, the end of November until the beginning of January everything is end-of-year overviews. When we still had a subscription to a newspaper (er, last year) I avoided the last issue of the year because it was nothing else than that.

Daughter of Mystery

Heather Rose Jones, Daughter of Mystery [Edit: I said this wasn’t a review, and I still don’t think it is — I wrote it as only thoughts and squee — but several people including the author seem to disagree. Ah, well, let it be a review then.] Conversation in the swimming pool, the morning that
