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 Fairy-Tale Detectives - Peter Ferguson, Michael Buckley An okay modernization of classic fairy tales. There were a few fun, new elements: Puck is one of the main-ish characters; characters and elements from stories I wouldn't consider fairy tales were here: Aladdin's carpet, King Arthur and Excalibur, and the Queen of Hearts; and there's only one Prince Charming, he's been married to and divorced from all of the princesses (Cinderella, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, etc.).

I'm actually not sure how much I liked that there were those non-fairy-tale elements. It actually pulled me out of the story a few times when those elements or characters were introduced.

It was still entertaining to read, and I enjoyed all of the twists.
