Happy post-holiday weekend, for those who were celebrating. If not, then... happy post-weekend! I've got a winter-ish contest for you, because this book feels very "winter" to me.
Here we go: I got to see the lovely Kristin Cashore at my local indie bookstore a few months back, which means I got to have my copies of Graceling, Fire, and Bitterblue signed. It also means I got an EXTRA copy signed, and that copy is looking for a home. Preferably the home of a fantasy booklover who's into Kristin Cashore, but you know. Any happy home will do!
While I do have some qualms with Cashore's work, which I can elaborate on some other time, I find her books to be generally very female-centric and sex-positive. These books overflow with wonderful and varied characters; the fantasy world is well-realized. If you're a Tamora Pierce fan, you may dig these. Each book works as a standalone, but they're all companion books and work best when read together. Bitterblue is technically the sequel to Graceling, though you wouldn't be lost if you read it without having read Graceling. Basically, if you like fantasy and you like girl characters and you like feminist-flavored fiction, these will probably be up your alley.
