Oh dear Rose,
I do hate it when you’re sick…hopefully this mystery virus is on its way but yes, the fact that you are well enough to read is a very good thing.
So it’s March and we’re up to Lili. I haven’t met Lili but I’m well aware of her rep as one of the cool OzYA authors about town. I enjoyed her mystery/romance – in fact just writing that makes me think ooh, I should write a mystery/romance – it sounds so enticing! What do you think…myance or romastery or how about rom-stry? And that was called A Pocketful of Eyes. Also enjoyed her les-lit (is that a thing? I just made that up – maybe a tad un-PC) Pink.
So I’m looking forward to The Boundless Sublime – even though it’s about a cult – I mean that’s intriguing right? But am I going to be scared? Is it okay to read it before bed or should I stick with Anne (that’s Anne of Green Gables who has been assisting me with some insomnia issues)?
Meanwhile, on other writerly issues I’m trying to get my head around Voice. Ah yes, voice – that thing that all publishers apparently dream about. Specifically voice in The Eye of the Sheep. Am doing my first uni pressie on Friday on this very topic. The difficulty is while I enjoyed The Eye of the Sheep it was kind of a grueller (domestic violence was a major issue) and re-reading for bits of ‘voice’ that I will blather on about is kind of trying…
But I know what you’re thinking – who gives a Reichenbach? Or is that flamin’ ferrets?
Feel better soon. Love you heaps, Mum xoxoxo
