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
Hound Dog True - Linda Urban There's understanding that little things mean much more to children than to adults, and then there's taking that far enough that the main character comes across as emotionally disturbed.

Shy to the point of being disabled, Mattie takes things so much to heart that she's reached the point where she all but refuses to talk to anyone but her uncle.

She's meant to come across as deep and thoughtful and damaged, but honestly my biggest reaction was concern as to why she'd not been taken to see a counselor. And that made it difficult for me to really appreciate the story.
