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."

I think if bufffistas are allowed to be extra positive about anything it’s books.

Y’all speaking of gushing—I almost never like contemporary lesbian romances. They’re just so often bad. Or unrealistic. And usually not hot.

But I just devoured one and it was great! Satisfaction Guaranteed, by Karelia Stetz-Waters. Two thumbs up.

In the end it's only ever been one step, and then the next.

I have started Victoria Goddard's The Hands of The Emperor and am really enjoying it - someone described it as "The Goblin Emperor from Csevet's POV, set in the South Pacific" and they aren't far off.

I am a woman of various inclinations and only some of the time are they to burn everything down in frustration

Mm, I like The Hands of the Emperor so much. Pops into my head as something to contemplate pretty often

ETA: ooh, novella prequel I haven’t read! Petty Treasons

Days shrink and grow cold, sunlight through leaves is my song. Winter is long.

Hands of the Emperor looks so good--I wish they had it in trade paper.

Bev, can you see if your library has an electronic copy? That's how I'm reading it.

I've started working at the library bookstore again. So, if there is anything people are looking for leave me a message here or at my profile address, and I'll look next time I'm there.

I scored a hardcover edition of Charlotte's Web for ltc today, as well as a bunch of things for myself.

"Look, son, if it's good enough for Shirley Bassey, it's good enough for you."

The first book I ever bought (excluding the Scholastic ordering at school) was from a Friends of the Library sale I ran into at Dadeland Mall. I must've read that book a dozen times.
