Some recent reads.

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.

    I’m (nerdily) jealous that you get to read so many books where I am shackled to the beast that is Huge-Ass-19th-Century-Novels.

    And Fun Fact! I used to work John Bellair’s home town. You can actually visit the house with the clock in its walls! Also: our J-Fic section was overflowing with multiple copies of every Bellairs book in existence, no matter how decrepit they looked, we couldn’t get rid of them… oy.

  2. That is a fun fact! And all my reading is for class…I haven’t had a free reading book since…August. 😦
