Weird love's better than no love.

Buffy ,'Dirty Girls'


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."

Friends don't let friends read "Atlas Shrugged"

And if you see what looks like an orange-ish "lady bug" it may be a baby carpet beetle, which can grow up to eat holes in your wool clothes.

If I want to become a cloud of bats, does each bat need a separate vaccination?

My almost-13 daughter wants to read things that are "scary and gay" so hit me up with your YA/middle grade lesbian horror recs.

I wish she was local so I could point her at my friend Eleanor's Creepy Girl Book Club.

Actually, I can rec one book: Holy Black's Tithe. Which is a Fae intersecting with the real world type story but has some intense Gay and intense Scary.

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

I don’t know how scary she’ll find it, but she might enjoy Cinderella is Dead.

"I'm useless alone." // "We're all useless alone. It's a good thing you're not alone."

Maybe Alix. E. Harrow's Fractured Fables novellas?

Has anyone read Tender is the Flesh? I’m reading it now, and it is quite possibly the most disturbing book I’ve ever read.

That's the pain / That cuts a straight line down through the heart / We call it love

Jess, she might like The Last Girls Standing, by Jennifer Dugan, or the graphic novel Squad, by Maggie Tokuda-Hall.

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

OH, good one. And that reminds me there's a new Alix Harrow book out - I don't know if it's scary or gay, I pre-ordered it and don't even remember the description

It's the next book up for my friend Eleanor's Creepy Girls Book Club!
