      Comments Off on 30 in 30: Day 24 (A quote? how the hells am I supposed to choose just ONE?)

Best quote from a novel Oh my goddess, we have so many contenders for this post. I simply can’t list just one, unless I wanted to be funny. Contrary to my usual nature, I wish to share quotes that actually mean something to me. So, from the very talented Jacqueline Carey and her quite astounding literary masterpiece, Kushiel‘s Legacy, my… Read more »

30 in 30: Day 21 (more Kushiel spoilers, be warned)

Favorite romantic/sexual relationship (including asexual romantic relationships) Phedre/Joscelin, Kushiel Series. I would classify them as a romantic relationship between a sexual and asexual person. Yes, they make love, and yes, Joscelin enjoys it — but he’s still pretty asexual. You can be asexual and enjoy sex. It’s just…not necessary for life.

Favorite book cover (bonus points for posting an image!) Kushiel’s Chosen. The second book in the series, it’s the one where we get to see Phedre’s marque in full on the cover. The previous cover showed a profile shot of her, which had only part of the marque. (Also…I’m not too fond of her face in the first cover (and… Read more »

30 in 30: Day 03 (in which I review PORN — I mean, part of the Kushiel series)

The best book you’ve read in the last 12 months This one is harder to answer because I’ve read fewer books in the past year than I usually have. (Yes, you read that right.) Most of the books I’ve read have been non-fiction, which usually means that I haven’t actually finished them yet. And I have trouble picking a non-fiction… Read more »
