lawl, I haven't done this in ages. But A Girl Made of Dust is turning out to be one of those books I keep reading over and over because the words are so deliciously beautiful. And I didn't get to shove in all the quotes I wanted to show in my review, so I thought I'd take advantage of this time to feature a nice select quote here
I lay there listening to her. The brushing slowed to the speed of her song and blended into it. In the high parts, her voice was clear and wavered, but when she sang low, it came out rough and grainy as sand. It was a beautiful voice, and she was like a princess going round and round sweeping - round and round until one day something wonderful would happen, and then she'd sing all the time. (pg. 21-22)
GO. READ IT. I COMMAND YOU TO.
I didn't mention this before but the most esteemed Justine Larbalestier invited me to guest post on her blog. I wrote about The Importance of Diversity, and I put my heart out to write this particular post. Do consider checking it out, and I'd love to hear any and all commentary you wish to make on it.
Er, another thing I just realized I didn't mention on this blog. Susan, the mastermind behind Color Online has invited me to be CORA girl, aka a part of that blogging team! So I'll be there, posting stuff. Don't worry though, GAL Novelty is my baby and I won't consider abandoning this blog any time soon. Do check it out, and as today is Susan's bday, do considering going over here and wish her a good one! =D
According to my follower widget I now have 50+ followers!!! *throws confetti everywhere* I was thinking of ways to celebrate and then thought of a book giveaway contest that I'm really excited about hosting. Said contest will be up sometime this week, I promise.
