I don't care if it is an orgy of death, there's still such a thing as a napkin.

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."

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.

"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.

Happy Thanksgiving Literistas!

Unfortunately I am not chez Pix and ND this year, but I'm happy to say my other Thanksgiving tradition lives on. That's right, it's time for my annual First Lines book challenge!

I have every faith that you can guess at least one of these.

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

I couldn't sleep last night, so I ended up reading a large chunk of Mexican Gothic, and omg it is so good! Great gothic elements, and the witty conversations are very Austenesque. I can't wait to read more of it tonight.
