Well.

I figured I'd better get back into blogging on a regular basis. (Yeah, I know some people would have done this ten days ago; I was a little busy.)

I'm Laura. I write. Well, actually, I mainly bitch about a lot of things (mostly work-related), but that's only when I don't have a book to fuel my rage and I can take a lot of my anger out there. For fiction, I write about snarky teenagers in f... Read more of this blog post »

Deerskin by Robin McKinley

This is one of my favorite Robin McKinley books, but it’s one that I don’t read as often. Largely due to what it’s about and how harrowing the opening of this is. I don’t regularly recommend it to people without warning them first about what it’s abo ...more

There’s really not a lot that I have to say about this book overall. Not that this was a bad book—Robin McKinley is among those authors who even when I’m not a huge fan of the book, it’s still fantastically well-written—but the plot and characters di ...more

I hesitate to call the previous two books of Shelley Adina’s Her Own Devices series as disappointments, because although they don’t quite reach the levels of awesome from the first three books and I disliked the plot elements, they’re still good book ...more
