We look nothing alike. Nothing. And Emily is safely dead. Dead, I say. Why would you even imply that she is still alive & our clone-leader? https://t.co/aIBlYrRYfl

Review: "The Imperfection of Swans" by Brandon Witt
The Imperfection of Swans - Brandon Witt

"He was more than a pretty face, this Kevin Bivanti. Maybe he was worth crying over in a bathroom. “Because of fate. We have to have both. Fate and hard work. And the willingness to leap."

 

This was even more wonderful in the reread. So I'm bumping up my initial rating from 4.5 to 5 stars while also putting this gem on my "favorite" shelf.

 

If this book was a wedding dress, it would have been designed by Vera Wang.

Nine Princes in Amber
Nine Princes in Amber - Roger Zelazny

I love The Chronicles of Amber. It's one of the best high fantasy book series I've ever read. It's original, creative and kind of funny. I read whole series twice and I will gladly read it again.

ML is the author of the Broken Empire Trilogy, which is amazeballs!

 

You say tomato, I point you to studies of variation of pronunciation on a geographical, historical, and class basis. #IAmNerd

SB is writing the Vlad Taltos novels that are still being written (Thank god!). Be amazed by the beautiful cover of the latest book in the series!

 

It's important to have a code phrase to let people know if you've been kidnapped or are communicating under duress. Mine is, "Mmmm, kale!"

BW wrote the Night Angel trilogy. The protagonist of the series is on my list of favorite assassins.

A Day of Fire: A Novel of Pompeii
A Day of Fire: a novel of Pompeii - Sophie Perinot,Stephanie Dray,Kate Quinn,Vicky Alvear Shecter,Ben Kane,Damon Knight

What are you doing with your Friday night?

Me?

I'm ugly crying into a giant mug of tea.

 

I am a sucker for anything Kate Quinn puts her name to.Outside of Kate Quinn, the only author whose work I was familiar with was Stephanie Dray. I found Dray's work to be rather forgettable. However, like I said, Kate Quinn had her name on it. Count me in. Strangely, Kate Quinn's story wasn't even my favorite. 

 

E. Knight's story "The Mother" had me crying so hard, I had to take a reading break. It was  beautifully tragic. Easily my favorite of all the stories. I now find myself needed to seek out more of Knight's work. 

 

I think I need to go raid my daughters' bookshelves to find something a little less dramatic and tragic. I think someone brought home a Fancy Nancy book I haven't read yet.
