Reading notes, week 19

Currently reading:  Next up: More Fearless Fairwells, I think. Or more Inspector French. Or some more new (at least new-to-me) fanfic. Or another partial Young Wizards reread, because I promised to write a Dairine story (already wrote another Dairine story but that’s so specific that not many people will get it. The ones who do

Yuletide 2020 writing

Claiming bragging rights. By the comments I got, I think I’m entitled. A Letter, Unsent (1078 words) – Margery Kempe & Julian of Norwich This was my actual assignment, the other three long stories are pinch hits. When I offered it I hoped SO MUCH that I’d get it and already had snatches of text

Reading notes, week 48

November 28: Evil Under the Sun by Agatha Christie. Goodness, an Agatha Christie I’d never read! Poirot’s grown on me or something. Slightly too much marriage woes and implied adultery and similar stuff for me but it was exciting, the ending was surprising (in a good way) and the people who deserved to be happy

Reading notes, week 43

October 23: Dragonhaven by Robin McKinley. It’s… strange. About halfway through I got interested enough to continue but I don’t think it will ever be a favourite. It should be “USA as a fantasy world” but the fact that it isn’t a fantasy world gets in the way, and (I think, not being USan or

May 9: N or M? by Agatha Christie. The second Tommy and Tuppence book. I briefly considered Endless Night but that’s another “eerie” book with a “twist” ending. Nope. Crooked House by Agatha Christie. DNF, because I looked up if the nice people would have a happy ending (can’t stand unhappy endings right now) and

Reading notes, week 12

March 21: Wet Nails by Shira Glassman. Bought the pdf, converted it to epub, converted the epub to mobi, sent the epub and the mobi back to Shira so she can put those up with the pdf. Sweet story that starts fluffy and fangirly and turns explicit quite suddenly. Technically it’s a ghost story but

Reading notes, week 11

March 14: The Vulcan Academy Murders by Jean Lorrah. Gearing up for The IDIC Epidemic. Eee! T’Mir and Daniel! Right up there with Éowyn and Faramir. March 13: Swordheart by T. Kingfisher. When Spouse was reading it he kept chuckling to himself so I knew I was in for a treat, and I was right!

2020 reading notes, week 2

I notice that so far this year I’ve only read one book by a man (the Judge Dee one). I’m not aiming to read only or mostly books by women, but it happens. Mostly white women, though, like myself (and still not for that). Obviously I don’t know about the fanfic but it’s statistically probable
