Earrings...

Jan. 22nd, 2018 | 01:19 pm
posted by: readsintrees in sounis

Does anyone else have an earring addiction? I just bought myself two more pairs yesterday, even though I already have so many pairs. SO MANY.

I blame it on having a pixie haircut (perfect for showing off earrings!), but if I'm being honest, I secretly suspect it's because I was influenced by a certain thief in my formative pre-teen years. I can't get enough. I mean, I only have TWO pairs of golden bee earrings...

YA criticism

I just read an article from the Huffington post about YA fiction, and I have to agree! All of these are reasons why I read classic fiction when I was a teen and avoided the YA section. Also, why must the majority of YA authors explain everything to DEATH? When I was a teen, I constantly found myself drumming my fingers and skipping ahead past the character's "thinking through" what just happened in a book. I already picked up on everything that happened, and already understood what the interaction meant. Why must we spend 10 minutes rehashing everything? Your readers are not stupid. MOVE ALONG please. I really appreciate that MWT sticks to the "show, don't tell" style of writing.

I'm currently participating in a Librarian's reading challenge in which different library branches are competing for the most pages of Juvenile or YA fiction or nonfiction read from Jan 1- Mar 1. The winners get a pizza party ;) I'm struggling to get through a book recommended by a friend,These Shallow Graves by Jennifer Donnelly. Not only is the main character committing the most obvious cliches, I am only a third of the way into the book and am pretty sure I have figured out the ending. I found out that graphic novels count toward the contest so I may have to ditch Graves to preserve my sanity.

Does anyone else feel this way about YA novels in general? You can read the article I mentioned here: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/what-ya-gets-wrong-about-teenagers-from-a-teen_us_594a8e4de4b062254f3a5a94

There's a pretty hilarious string of reblogs that have been going around the QT tags on Tumblr the past few days.

I am a totally innocent bystander in all of this, by the way.

Remember that KoA Paragraph?

Jan. 12th, 2018 | 02:38 am
posted by: ninedaysaqueen in sounis

Remember that mysterious line from KoA that we investigated HERE and HERE?

“I hope you know that I could once jump from the palace to those roofs over there.” He eyed the empty space below him and said sadly, “If I tried now, I’d probably eviscerate myself when I landed. But it does give me an idea for what to do with you.” - The King of Attolia p335 (2017 paperback edition)

Chat this Sunday? And a couple of questions.

Happy New Year, Sounis! I hope your first week of the new year has gone well, and you've already gotten the chance to recommend our favorite series to some new people.

There is a holiday weekend coming up for us Americans, so I thought it would be the perfect weekend for our first chat of the year! Live community chats are held in the Conspiracy Room and the password is HERE. Only members of the community can access the chat room. Sometimes, we have a guest of honor who stops by to say hi, and by that, I do mean MWT herself.

BTW, I've noticed that Chatzy doesn't get a lot of traffic in between chats these days, so I wanted to make sure all you lovely reprobates know that you don't have to be shy about using the chat room. Leave random messages, post links to articles, recommend books or fanfiction--I once spent a week discussing Romeo and Juliet if read as a parody with Leslie and TLE. Don't be nervous about using Chatzy to connect with your fellow QT peps about off topic subjects. If you ever lose the password, you can always message me or checkers65477 for the link.

Same bat time? Same bat channel?

A question of Wimsey

Jan. 6th, 2018 | 06:45 pm
posted by: freenarnian in sounis

Happy near year, Sounisians!

I was recommending Dorothy Sayers (as one does), this time to an_english_girl, when she posed a very reasonable but perplexing question: In what order should one read the Lord Peter Wimsey books?

Now, I recall asking this very question, and I was told to begin with the short stories. In hindsight, I think I would have understood and enjoyed those more had I read the novels first. The novels can be read sequentially, of course, but the difference in quality and tone varies significantly, with many people favoring her later books. (I suppose it depends on how one feels about the addition of Harriet Vane to the cast of characters.) So where should one begin, if one wants to dip one's toe into the waters to get a feel for the series overall?

I know there are Sayers fans hereabouts, and so I put the question to Sounis. Anyone have suggestions?
