A Strange Hymn, Laura Thalassa
Seriously, Tamlin needs a swift kick in the balls for the way he's treated Fayre. Rhys just needs some sense knocked in him. And Fayre's just trying to recover and she's got jealous men who REFUSE to acknowledge their feelings for her, or are just plain abusive. Good on her for leaving Tamlin. He deserved less.
I didn't think Rhys would grow on me, but I'm loving the interactions between him and Feyre. I'm only into chapter 15, but the respect and consideration for her feelings and needs is worlds away from what Tamlin has shown. Really hoping Feyre shucks Tamlin. He might think he's doing what's right, but he isn't seeing how it's slowly killing Feyre.
Meant to grab two copies of the illustrated edition of Prisoner of Azkaban (one for me, one for gift). They're sold out, but they had a single copy of this beauty.
I didn't expect much going in. Mom said a few of her friends have loved this series and have reread it multiple times. When she said it was better than HP, I had to see if it was true. This book was good, better than I expected, but HP will always have a special place in my heart.
You need the Imaginarium Geographica to avert whatever disaster is looking on the world at large. You are the Caretaker of the Geographica. You lost the Geographica. Ergo, you and everyone you know, love, care about, or exchange pleasantries with as you gather your mail are about to perish in darkness and misery. I hope that's cleared things up for you.
Found this illustrated masterpiece @ BAM. Going on my 2018 reading list.
So I wasn't a big fan of Outlander (the book, LOVE the show), and I was able go get through Dragonfly in Amber, and now I'm about 300 pages into Voyager. I have to admit I like this one MUCH more than I did the other ones. I feel like Diana has gotten some of the kinks worked out and she's in good form here. Excited about the rest of the series.
But isn‘t it the human factor what connects us so deeply to our past? Will future generations care as much for chronologies and casaulity statistics as they would for the personal accounts of inividuals not so different from themselves? By excluding the human factor, aren‘t we risking the kind of personal detachment from a history that may, heaven forbid, lead us one day to repeat it?
I'm still just obsessed with this book....
This author pulled me in before I even got past the intro. I really enjoyed this book, it's highly engaging, and although the writing style is a little off putting (to me at least) at the beginning, it was easy to get past and become enveloped in the story. Five out of five stars doesn't do this book justice.
The relationship between Melanie and Miss Justineau is what humanizes a character that other authors may have played off as dependent on her biology. It's because of Miss Justineau that Melanie is able to accept what she is, learn who she is, and just how strong she can be. This ten year old girl, not seen as an ally at first by many of the other characters, shows more humanity than the humans themselves could have ever hoped to possess.
