Literary Buffistas 3: Don't Parse the Blurb, Dear.

There's more to life than watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer! No. Really, there is! Honestly! Here's a place for Buffistas to come and discuss what it is they're reading, their favorite authors and poets. "Geez. Crack a book sometime."

Now with added Sheffield steel.

I got my Murderbot books back from my 13 year old yesterday - decided I needed to refresh my memory on the whole series before I dove into #5.

Wait, is it under a pen name? Because I’m only seeing RW&RB, and a book that’s coming out next June. Nothing else.

Love is stronger than death and harder than sorrow. Those who practice it are fierce like the light of stars traveling eons to pierce the night.

I started Reading Elizabeth Peters with The Last Camel Died at Noon. Stumbled in it at the library, and how do you walk past a title like that? So the child and the precocious love interest were part of the whole thing for me.

Now tagless for your comfort.

Another book talk dropped. This one is The Montague Siblings series by Mackenzie Lee. [link]

"There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea."

I started the audiobook for Ninth House this week while I can’t do much else. The female narrator who does Bardugo’s books is excellent. I found the male narrator slightly less interesting, but so far the book is sucking me right in.

Herding cats for fun

November 18: Margaret Atwood’s Birthday! I hope she will write some more books.

She has a new poetry book out.
