She still refused to look at him, but she could feel the heated flush of anger again in her cheeks. “Cooperate with the guards. For your own sake,” he continued. “Be good yourself, Captain,” she said […]
This is just a quick post about something that’s been on my mind for a while. It’s sad that there are so many preconceived ideas about YA novels, ideas that show those who speak about them, very often haven’t read any. I’m writing for adults, children and Young Adults and in one of my writer’s […]
Publication date: 2015 Pages: 350 Word count: ? Ages: YA They are all innocent until proven guilty. But not me. I am a liar until I am proven honest. What a book! I finished it a while ago but I’m still stunned. Sometimes you read a book and the topic shocks you. Then you read a book […]
Publication date: 2014 Pages: 198 Word count: ? Ages: YA Last year I read my first Dana Reinhardt novel (The Summer I Learned to Fly) and liked it a great deal. The story was cute, the characters lovable but what I liked the most was the tone and the voice. I knew I would read another […]

I think we posted at the same time. 🙂
I’m nearly done with The Secret Chamber and I have mixed feelings about the stories.
It looks like that – you were a tad earlier though. 🙂
I’m looking forward to hear more about it.
I’ll be following this event.
Great. Btw -Miguel – your comment on Bellezza’s blog made me read The Magic Toyshop. I loved it.
I cannot wait to begin reading all the great post that will be surely coming!
There have already been a few. I’m so glad that there’s such an interest.
So so glad you’re hosting this. I finished Bluebeard, and am halfway through Nights At The Circus. What weird and wonderful stuff! I’ll post a review on Circus as soon as I finish.
Great! I’m glad that you like her. I don’t think you can compare her to anyone. She’s unique. Weird and wonderful indeed. Fireworks contains he Japan stories. She lived there for a while, as you probably know.
No, I didn’t know that! See, we’re all connected somehow…
You’ll have to give her Japan set stories in Fireworks a go.
I love Angela Carter, so even though I probably won’t have time to read with you, I’ll look forward to reading everyone else’s posts! Hope you have a great week.
Thanks, Litlove. I’ve seen som great posts already.
Have fun! I’ll follow the event with interest.
Thanks, Emma. It’s started well.
Thanks for hosting this event, Caroline. I can’t wait to get started on my Angela Carter book.
It’s my pleasure. I hope you’ll like it.
I’m in the middle of my re-read of The Magic Toyshop, and I’m loving it. Thank you for doing this.
My pleasure. I’m glad to hear it. I’ve finished it a few days ago. I loved it as well.
I’m glad the event has started, but I’m a little disappointed that I can’t comment on blogs that don’t have Name/URL commenting enabled. Because I have a self-hosted blog, I lack the login credentials required by some blogs. This is an ongoing problem for me and, sadly, it prevents me from interacting with quite a few book bloggers.
I’m still reading all the Angela Carter posts though. 🙂
It’s off to a great start. 🙂
Yes, that commenting system is a huge problem. For me as well, btw. It doesn’t always work, I need to remeber to be logged in etc. I think Name/URL also enables anonymous which seems a problem for some.
I’ll be following your reviews with interest. I don’t know if I’ll have a chance to read one of Angela Carter’s books myself this week, but I’m looking forward to your posts.
Maybe a short story?
In any case, readers are welcome too.
I’m really looking forward to getting stuck into Nights at the Circus – think I’ll start it tonight. I’m also really looking forward to reading everyone’s posts. Thanks again for hosting, it’s going to be a good week.
Bellezza is reading it and loves it. I’m curious to see how you will like it.
It looks like it will be a great week.
