Readathon 2014

I've signed up for Dewey's Read-a-Thon at the last minute mostly so I can mainline the last 100 pages of "Fire" by Kristen Cashore and then read "Bitterblue".

I re-read "Graceling" in about two days recently so I could finally push on through the trilogy and ugh, everyone, I should have done this so much sooner. If you are a lady trying to work out how to live life your way and you need a little boost get to these books quickly. If you want modern books based on old school feminist ideas, books that look at some big crossroads of female life and says 'traditional living is kind of lazily messed up sometimes if you look at it closely' this is your trilogy. Complexity - there's a lot of it to be found here.

What are you planning to read if you're joining Read-a-Thon this time around?

!!! I think you are going to adore Bitterblue if you are loving the complexity in Graceling. It's my favorite of the three, but I am really biased towards Bitterblue.

HOORAY THOSE ARE MY FAAAAAVORITES! Whoops capslock, but I love those books so, so much. Just everything you say about them! They are like purposeful refutations of things that I too often find annoying in some fantasy books. <3

I don't know what I'll be reading yet, I guess I'll go through my books Friday night and try to make a stack of choices :)
