It's been ages since I did one of these. Basically, I got behind, and felt like I couldn't review any until I'd cleared the backlog, which just kept on growing. So, today I'm saying "screw the backlog" and also ignoring the general rule that these need to be "new" authors. Robin Hobb is new to me, though the books themselves have been around since the mid 90s. I read part of one once at the library on break, but never managed to finish the series.

So, I did a little informal testing on my new supplies, and then I decided that there was no good reason not to get gratuitous with it. Lots of paper and squiggles, very large pic )

One of the backlog. I'd do more, but my hands are being little bastards, so the others must wait. Read more... )

Reviewing because I just read it, and I have something like a three book backlog on reviews. Argh. Clearly I need to do this right after I finish em.

So, in light of last night's rambling book review, I think I'm going to make a template for future ones. If there's anything you think I ought to include as a header, please let me know.

[Edit - Because I've been asked: Yes, you may use and modify this on your own to your heart's content.]

So, I'm embarking on a once a month habit of buying a book new from the store. It has to be a book I haven't read before, and it has to be a relatively new one. It is allowed to be a writer I already know I like, but new writers are okay, as well. We started out a little late for October by getting Rosemary and Rue at WindyCon. I haven't gotten around to reviewing that one, and probably ought to, since my last review was...vitriolic. But since I just finished reading the most recent one, Clockwork Heart, and it's fresh in my head, you'll get that instead. Do note that this is meandery and stream of consciousness, not a proper review.Read more... )
