  • I just finished All the Birds in the Sky by Charlie Jane Anders. I loved it. Anyone else read it? It had mixed reviews on Goodreads. I can understand why, but it was just the right texture for me.

    Whoops. Guess I should put reading stuff here, huh? I finished Stiletto. It wasn't as marvelous as the first book, but still a fun ride. I think it needed more editing, but that's just my opinion.

    Now, I've started The Wind-up Girl by Paolo Bacigalup . So far, it's gritty and a bit complicated. It feels like the movie Blade Runner, but with gene-spliced food as the mystery instead of people. I'm liking it, though.

      Ooh, a book titled Wind-up Girl sounds interesting. I'm imagining something kinda steampunk-futuristic... added to my to-read list.

      It was dark. There were parts that made me uncomfortable. But...it was good.

      I'm trying to read more middle-grader books this month so that if (WHEN) an agent calls, I'll have some comp titles and authors to talk about. The problem is finding ones I like!

    Space Age Mermaid

    Sulily sleeps suspended inside a transparent, cylindrical womb filled with luminous blue fluid. Her suit sticks to her body like a second skin and has knobby nodes that run up the length of her spine and end at the soft helmet’s base at the back of her neck. From the center of the helmet, wires fan outward and upward, gathering at the control center at the top of the container. Sulily’s mouth and nose are covered by a breathing apparatus with a serpentine root that coils and stretches down to the base of the cylinder.

    When Bug was six, she got kicked in the head by a horse. By all accounts, that’s how she should have died. That she lived was a tiny miracle but it’s an old story, the one about how she went blind. When she was twelve, she got her brand new cybernetic eyes. You could even call it a brand new lease on life.
