62938 I finished Radiance this morning. Hot damn I liked it! I'm glad you mentioned the Drow, Sonya, because with that and the cover, it helped me get a good mental picture of supercool Prince Brishen. I loved these characters and the story.

I look forward to talking with yous guys about it Saturday!!

62938 Thank you, Erin and Laura! I was just checking the place out on Google Maps Earth view and see what y'all are talking about. Shouldn't be too bad. :)

62938 Ditto, Emma and Jen! I'm never been to the Avenue. Should be fun!

62938 Okay, so we are down for this Saturday, January 16, 2016, at 5pm (new, later time!) at the Avenue Cafe for our January meet-up to discuss Radiance.

See all you lovely ladies then!!!

Pam--I saw on FB you let the Avenue know about your birthday party. Would you give them a heads-up about us too please (if you haven't already)?

62938 Oh good, I'm glad we have some books to read! I've already listened to the Lunar Chronicles series--except the last and newest one (still waiting for it from the library--only 2 more people ahead of me on Overdrive!). It's gooood.

Radiance is on Audible--yes!! I need to listen to the sample first, but I'm hoping the reader doesn't suck. I've got to get a move on it; our January meeting is coming up fast!

62938 Yeah, earlier would work fine for me. I've updated the G+ event for the earlier start time.

62938 Speaking of which, yesterday (which was a BLAST! Thanks for coming to my place and being such awesome people!) we set the date, time, and place for our December meeting.

Saturday, December 19th at 1pm at AI Fusion in East Lansing

I've put the event up on our G+ page.

As we already decided, our December pick is Kim Harrison's Dead Witch Walking, the first in the Hollows series.

If Felicia puts up another suggested pick for December, like she did for The Veil, that will be our alt pick.

I hope this works for everyone. I look forward to next month.

Have I mentioned lately that I LOVE book club??!?! :D

62938 I'm sorry you couldn't make it out yesterday, Sarah! Hopefully you can come to the next meet-up.

62938 No dietary restrictions for me. Bring on the dairy!
Nov 09, 2015 05:32PM

62938 Also, it's freakin AWESOME you and possibly Pam can come, Angie!!

62938 I'm planning on making Pioneer Woman beef stew, homemade bread with honey butter, and having drinks fixings for Gin Gin Mules and a ginger, apple, and bourbon cocktail if that all sounds good to everyone!
Nov 04, 2015 07:44AM

62938 Sounds good to me! I'll have some sort of main dish for everyone, like Jen did with her husband's yummy chili since that worked out well last time and so no one has to worry about lugging a giant bowl of something out to us. Sound good?

62938 Elizabeth wrote: "It's a protagonist-centered morality. Bad things are bad when the villain does them, but not as bad when the hero does them."

This is a great point, Elizabeth. This has bothered me in other books as well, so I glad I now have a term for it. Thanks for putting it into words!

The double standard of this book's protagonist-centered morality didn't bother me while reading the book, since Philadelphia (with her ridiculous name and all) was such a horrid, one-dimensional character. But after reading through the forum comments and stepping back to analyze the story, it's a raw deal for her when Max, as you say, gets off scot-free.

Elizabeth made another great point that "Louise's love story was just as much falling for Max's family as falling for Max." I enjoyed that part of the love story, the finding and development of familial love between Louise and the McCords, the most satisfying part of the book.

62938 A graphic novel month for VF sounds great to me!

62938 LoL, Rhiannon! My home library is Howell, so not me! :)

62938 Those gifs are great, agreed Emma. Especially the Natalie Portman one. lol

Also, Erin, I get a kick out of profile pic, smiling each time I see it!

I am waiting on a copy of The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty to arrive, too, Sarah, though mine is through MeL--the copy at my local library is overdue since the end of June. I guess whoever got it out liked it a lot?!

62938 Yeah, Erin, GR app HATES that link. But I'm reading it right now and OMG it's great. So worth it to read, especially this quotation it cites:

"Hello, Anne’s clitoris. It’s me, Malcolm, your lord and master."

"Oh, god, no." I covered my face with my hands. "Please don’t."

"Shh. This is a private conversation." He brushed hot, feverish kisses up and down the lips of my sex. My stomach tensed so hard it hurt. "Look at you all pretty, pink, and excited. Don’t worry, I’ll look after you."— Play by Kylie Scott

Hilarious AND sexy. Yum.

Thanks for sharing, Emma!
