The Book High

I've always said I'll read anything, and I really do mean that. Lately M/M romance has had my interest, but fantasy and sci-fi were my first loves and will always hold a special place in my heart. I also love histories and biographies.

Currently reading

The Mists of Avalon
Marion Zimmer Bradley
Shakespeare After All
Marjorie Garber
The Mirror - Bell Ellis Interesting paranormal story, although I admit I'd hoped it might be a little scarier when I saw the mention of a ghost in the blurb.

I thought the pacing was nice, getting to see Vic get to know both Philippe and Jules, while watching the carvings in the mirror slowly change.

And I did like that I wasn't able to predict the ending, although perhaps I should have been able to...

And any story that can give a happy ending to that many people totally satisfies the sappy fluff lover in me.

Favorite Quotes:

Jennifer grinned widely. "Skolieeee!"
Skolie's head popped out from the back. "Yo."
"Vic is on druuuuuugs.

"An abominable plunderer? Um, these days we just call it 'gay'." He paused. "Abominable plunderer is kind of stylish, though."

"I learned that you never know your limits, because the moment you test them, they change."
