Still living for the weekend

The book reviews are here, because urgh, today needed something good. Spoilers for the first two hidden.

More cameos, please, or Shadows of SelfCollapse )
If not for Kate Griffin, I would have never (in the foreseeable future) attempted to buy an e-book through Google Play, consequently spending 15 minutes on the phone with my bank, roughly 8 of which I was exposed to someone slaughtering classical music on the other end of the line. But the novellas were out, the Internet was not obliging, and I was starved for some emotional retardation, so I was willing to brave even that. And boy, was it worth it.

The coin turns, or the Gameshouse novellas: The Serpent, The Thief, The MasterCollapse )
I'll leave the non-spoilery part of The Watchmaker of Filigree Street above the cut, because otherwise I’d exhaust myself trying to hide all the spoilers that the book is indeed very hard to describe without.

This was an unexpected treat of a book, incredibly charming and impossible to resist for anyone who has a tendency to go over the unholy trinity of “coulda, shoulda, woulda” in their head even a little. There are Britishisms and Japanese aristocrats involved, and the quiet every-page heartbreak. Yepp, that’s about it for the non-spoilery part – for a more tortured spoilerless review please refer to this post by ikel89, because I have no desire to fish for clever wording when it’s already been done.

And under the cut you shall have

“What kind of tea do you drink in the dark, anyway?”Collapse )


As my inner condition wished, I deleted everything there was in this lj before this day. From now on, everything I write in here (if anything) will be friends-only.

However, this action had a particular reason and it was a particular person I had in mind when I closed off the lj. So if for some reason you want to read it, but find this message too unfriendly, don't be alarmed - it's more personal rather than general)

And that's when we live now
