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
Tigers at Twilight - Mary Pope Osborne, Sal Murdocca This one started off feeling very familiar. I felt like the monkeys were a re-play of their visit to the amazon and the elephant from their visit to Africa. Once we got to the tiger, however, this one definitely turned for the better. I loved what the hermit had to say about them saving the tiger: "you saved his graceful beauty--and his fierce, savage nature. You cannot have one without the other."

Understanding that everyone has both strengths and weaknesses seems like a fairly advanced concept for the target audience for this book, but I'm very impressed it was included here. And at the way it was once again put across without managing to sound condescending or pedantic.
