Anne's IntermittentroPolis

I prefer to keep my reviews short but I can't guarantee them to be sweet. I don't mind discussing, analyzing, or raving but I'm just an inherently lazy writer/reviewer.

Currently reading

The Turn of the Screw
Henry James, Philip Horne, David Bromwich
Across a Star-Swept Sea

The Dream Thieves
Maggie Stiefvater
Alanna: The First Adventure - Tamora Pierce The writing clearly had some problems but the overall book was enjoyable if some thing are overlooked. There were subtle flaws that distracted me, like the huge character dumps, huge time gaps, suspiciously smooth cover of Alanna's identity. Now that's just to mention a few. Then again, it's particularly rare for a book to tackle the case of cross-dressing/ reverse identity. And I ask myself, am I going to read the next book? Not likely because I'm not overly excited to know what happens next.
