ramble through the bronx

yes, this here is ramble through the bronx, the continuing musings of a graduate student* who should be writing her dissertation, but honestly, living in new york city there's really so much else to do...

* and her commenting friends. And guest blogger.

Holiday Reading Recommendations

OK, sure, I realize not everyone's still on holiday, but I'm sure everyone wants to procrastinate. So here are some recommendations:


Just finished reading Jenny Crusie's _Bet Me_, which was fantastic. Hilarious. All I can say is seduction by doughnut. I'm going to go and read everything she's written (which includes some essays about Buffy!)

My friend Holly had recommended Susan Elizabeth Phillips. She lent me "It Had to Be You" (1994). I proceeded to read 5 more of her books. Good times. Good strong heroines.

Fantasy Etc.

Finally got around to reading Gregory Maguire's "Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister." It was as good as I expected.

While I was pining over Richard, I devoured about ten or eleven Diana Wynne Jones books -- not just for children anymore! They were so satisfyingly inventive, even the ones pitched to quite a young age. The nice thing about reading children's / young adult's fantasy is that there's no excessive romance to muddy up the plot -- which was a relief, since for two months after being dumped I couldn't even hear a reference to love (much less "true love," gack gack) without wanting to cry. (Clearly, as evidenced by the fact that I've been devouring romance novels whilst at Megan's, I'm over that stage of the dumpedness).

(the dumposity?)

(the dumpedality?)


Haven't actually been reading any of that nonsense lately. Huzzah! Woo hoo!
