Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan (1st book of The Lynburn Legacy)

OKAY GUYS LISTEN UP.

This book is going to be one of the most amazing things you have EVER READ IN YOUR ENTIRE LIFE. And here’s why;

  • The protagonist, Kami, is this amazing freaking half-Asian teenage girl, who has gems like 

'Kami'd always retold her fairy tales to make the fair maidens braver and more self-sufficient, but she never had any real objection to the handsome prince.'

'She had worried that she would break if her heart broke, but she wasn't broken. She had lost everything, but she was not lost. It seemed  a worthwhile thing to know.'

  • And Jared, who is hot and amazing and says to Kami things like;

"I thought you would like a weapon better than a rescue."

"I can never think of how to describe the value you have to me, because all the words for value suggest that you belong to me, and you don’t."

  • The book has amazing representation of bisexual and lesbian characters
  • The most important relationships in this book isn’t even romance, it’s all about friendship and family and it’s just the sweetest thing ever
  • And, as I’ve shown above, it’s freaking hilarious. There are FUNNIER stuff, but I  didn’t put them here because they’re either too long or too spoilery.

Of course I also feel the need to mention that no other book(s) in the world will ever hurt as much as this. The author, Sarah Rees Brennan, relishes her readers’ pain.

Which brings me to the author, Sarah Rees Brennan. She’s completed another trilogy, The Demon’s Lexicon, in which there are gay characters and, best of all, and POV character who is a WOMAN OF COLOUR. The series itself it just amazeballs.

She also wrote a novel-length story, The Turn of the Story, FOR FREE. Even though this story could literally make a lot of money for her because it’s THAT amazing. But IT’S FREE! You can find it here. The main character of that story is Elliot, a bisexual character. So obviously Sarah Rees Brennan is an amazing person because she cares about representation of all kinds and she writes amazing stuff for free.

But also she breaks my heart but that’s okay. POINT IS, read all her books! Like now! She also co-authored this book, Team Human, with Justine Larbalestier, which I haven’t read but will soon enough, but I’ve been told that it’s also amazing. Like everything else this lady writes.

And just before I leave, here’s my favourite quote from The Lynburn Legacy;

"Now I feel like the world is hell, and hell is a place where the souls of the damned can still see heaven. Because that’s the worst thing of all. And yet I can’t look away."

This is all much too kind and lovely and complimentary and I do not deserve it, but I am very touched!

… Okay that bit is totally true and I do deserve it. ;)

On Twitter yesterday, I promised myself that I wouldn’t write about the latest article that implies that adults shouldn’t be reading YA books. On this occasion it wasn’t an entire article devoted to that cause, but part of an author’s interview with MinnPost. The author was asked what she thought…

Re: your "rule about naked people" -- How about people who take nude photos of themselves not be stupid and use storage devices that can be hacked, like cloud storage (or take any risks close to that)? Just HOW much personal responsibility does your generation need to shed before you get it through your thick skulls that it only costs $20 for a decent external hard drive these days? :|

Cattle ranchers on Tuesday found a wet, nearly naked man hiding from extreme weather in a guitar case near the town of Muskogee, cold but alive. The man claims he was walking from Gore to Checotah, a distance of over 25 miles, in order to meet a woman. The freezing conditions were not a surprise; the entire state has been on ice since last week. Nevertheless, he set off.
Along the way, he apparently got lost and fell through an icy pond, after which he stripped off his wet and freezing clothes. The man then realized that it can get pretty cold when you’re standing in an icy forest in nothing but a pair of soggy boxer shorts, so he logically decided to spend the night in his guitar case.
He was found the next morning by a couple tending their cattle. They called authorities and found the shed clothes, which by then had frozen solid. He was treated and released upon the world to make more questionable decisions.

Ahh, Oklahoma. (Naked Oklahoma Man Found Alive Inside Guitar Case via Gawker)

This is a very interesting story that fails to answer the most important question: Small man or large guitar case?

He’s starting to get old. I wish dogs aged at the same speed that we do.
