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."

We are Buffistas. This isn't our first apocalypse. -- Pix

Oh indeed, that was a lovely little story.

numb little bug

I just finished copperbadge's latest in the "Shivadhverse" series. [link]

The first work was predictable, but fun.

The second work was a little more twisty, but still fun -- enough that I couldn't wait for the chapter releases, and instead read the still-being-polished draft in Google Docs. I enjoyed it a lot.

Recommended.

Now I think I'm going to go re-read all of Leonard Wibberly's "Duchy of Grand Fenwick" books.

Always support bacteria. They're the only culture some people have.

I have been having problems with reading new books, so I've gone on a massive re-read of the "In Death" series (out of order, picking them at whim). I suddenly realized something - when Eve wakes up in the morning, Roarke is watching the financial news with the cat on his lap. Sometimes she comes in and he's stretched out on the sofa with the cat on his lap. The REAL mystery - why doesn't he ever seem to have cat hair on his clothes?

That's his SF/mystery/romance hero superpower.

Why isn't everyone pelting me with JOY, dammit? - Zenkitty

The REAL mystery - why doesn't he ever seem to have cat hair on his clothes?

Especially since he's ALWAYS wearing black silk, and the cat is grey!

out of order, picking them at whim

This is funny to me because I've always read them out of order, as I found them at used book stores or wherever, so I've undertaken to read/re-read them all in order.

I just finished The Grief of Stones, the third book in The Goblin Emperor universe. I really liked it. I sort of want to sit with the ending for a while before I start some other book.

"Because if life gives you lemons / you don't have to make / lemonade / sugar isn't free / and grief doesn't have / to be productive." -from "lemonade" by Kaitlin Shelter

Calli, I liked it, too, but the ending seemed so abrupt I honestly thought it was missing a chapter at first.

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

I had that feeling also, Pix, but I have decided I like the dangling unresolved threads. The conversations in this book about not trying to find out who what's-his-name in the last book was protecting fed into that. I hope we don't have to wait too long to find out what happens next, though.

Iā€™m on the library wait list for it, but already read the sample. I love it, and also love that a new book probably means more good fic too!
