(Some subscribers might not recognize my new blog title when posts drop into their inboxes, so I may have to keep letting readers know it’s still me! I’m just feeling less accidental these days)
I do not have an MGM post today. Not due to Thanksgiving, but due to my husband’s 50th birthday. And I’m not so much recovering as pining for the beachfront view we just left in Gibsons, a lovely town on British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast, where we spent 3 days staring at the water.
Also, I’ve been reading very little MG/YA fiction lately. I’ve switched over to poetry and more literary adult / speculative fiction for a while. I wanted to get back to my roots and also expand my insight, vocabulary, and creative toolbox. Maybe it’s a bit like being a mother who spends all her time with her young children and craves a little adult conversation. (Finished Cloud Atlas and right now I am with China Mieville’s Perdido Street Station – both of which will challenge you if that’s what you’re looking for. And increase your vocabulary.)
And in case you are looking for you Middle Grade fiction fix, here are those bloggers who did post today:
