In the time since my last posting I have read several more books.
Hitler’s Youth by some guy I can’t remember right now. But it was a very informative, engaging Non-fiction middle/teen read about the young people involved with Nazis. The things I learned…
House with the Clock in Its Walls by John Bellairs: This was a reread. My grandmother recommended it to me ages ago so I was quite pleased to read it again. Such a good little mystery. And such queer little characters.
Coraline by Neil Gaiman: I read this ages ago as well, saw the movie last year, then reread it yesterday. And the book remains superior. But, what a creepy book. If I was 10 that thing would give me nightmares!
Sabriel by Garth Nix: When I read this 3 years ago I hated it. HATED it. Something about Touchstone and the hurriedness of the ending really turned me off. Upon rereading, it wasn’t so terrible. I moved it up to a 5/10 from a 1/10.
Here we go queer and feminist studies in Sci-fi horror! Brought to you in Sci-fi/Fantasy class this Thursday!
Books I WANT TO READ REALLY BADLY BUT CAN’T BECAUSE I AM A FULL TIME GRAD STUDENT WITH A PART TIME JOB:
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Solomon’s Eye by Jonathan Stroud
Harry. I miss him.
