DCIB Book Club: Shards of Honor By Lois Bujold in TWO WEEKS!!! April 4!!!

Yaaaaaaay! One of my favorite new books, which I read thanks to a recommendation ON THIS VERY SITE a couple years ago. It’s smart, it’s romantic, it’s addictive, and it’s a little bit mentally challenging too. You should all really REALLY enjoy it. Oh, and it’s also the perfect SRK/Tabu movie.

DCIB Book Club: Ronia the Robber’s Daughter Next Week!!! In TWO Weeks, The Red Signal, Dealing with Dragons, or Shards of Honor?

DCIB Book Club: Ronia the Robbers Daughter! In TWO Weeks, on Sunday the 28th!!!!

Yaaaaay, Children’s Literature!!!! It’s the BEST literature. And this is one of those books I remember from when I was a kid being totally completely absorbed in it. So good! By Astrid Lindgren who also did Pippi Longstocking, but this one is a lot better (I think).

DCIB Book Club: Emily of Deep Valley, My New Favorite Book!

DilDeewana is right, it’s so good! So very very good! It’s got a radical social message, it’s got a Jerk Man who is accurately described as a Jerk Man, and it has a loving kind grandfather. And a heroine who is an odd fit with girls her own age but discovers the joys of maturity.

DCIB Book Club Reminder/Announcement: Ranson’s Folly in TWO WEEKS (March 14), Emily of Deep Valley in ONE WEEK (March 7)

Time is confusing, isn’t it? But I think I have a solution. I can give us 2 weeks to read each book, if I announce 2 weeks in advance. Right? That’s how time works? BUT! I can have a book every week so long as I keep leapfrogging the announcements. Everything I pick is going to be super fast and light, but I still want to give 2 weeks so you have time to track down a physical copy if you want, or wait to read it until you are in the mood, or whatever.

DCIB Book Club: Emily of Deep Valley or Ranson’s Folly? Heroic Boy Romance or Thoughtful Girl Romance?

Either of these is fine by me! I love Ranson’s Folly and am always ready for a re-read. And I have not yet read Emily of Deep Valley, but it gets amazing reviews and was specifically called out as a “perfect quarantine read”.
