You know when you read something and you have to stop every other page because you want to read it out loud to the person sitting next to you?
This is like that. Only you’re the person sitting next to us and we can’t read it out loud because this book doesn’t come out until January!
Grrr. C’est la vie.
Holly Black’s The Darkest Part of the Forest marks her triumphant return to her faerie roots, and will be out January 13, 2015. Until then here’s a taste:

Children can have a cruel, absolute sense of justice. Children can kill a monster and feel quite proud of themselves. A girl can look at her brother and believe they’re destined to be a knight and a bard who battle evil. She can believe she’s found the thing she’s been made for.
Hazel lives with her brother, Ben, in the strange town of Fairfold where humans and fae exist side by side. The faeries’ seemingly harmless magic attracts tourists, but Hazel knows how dangerous they can be, and she knows how to stop them. Or she did, once.
At the center of it all, there is a glass coffin in the woods. It rests right on the ground and in it sleeps a boy with horns on his head and ears as pointed as knives. Hazel and Ben were both in love with him as children. The boy has slept there for generations, never waking.
Until one day, he does…
As the world turns upside down, Hazel tries to remember her years pretending to be a knight. But swept up in new love, shifting loyalties, and the fresh sting of betrayal, will it be enough?

And this cover! Beautiful, right?

imagine bucky and natasha whispering behind steve’s back in russian, just little harmless things like “he’s cute when he’s angry” and “if you tell him he’s got a nice ass he’ll turn the color of your hair” so steve decides he’s gonna learn some russian so he can understand what they’re saying about him, but it has an unintended side effect. bucky mumbles in his sleep when he’s restless, sometimes english or spanish or japanese, but most often in russian. usually it’s a litany of “don’t make me don’t make me please stop don’t make me i don’t want to” but every now and then it’ll be something along the lines of “begging for your life won’t make a fucking difference to me” and steve can’t decide which is worse

TRYING TO NETWORK AT CONFERENCES

Networking.

I just end up panicking and telling people weird untruths about my homeland.

LIBRARIAN: Hello I work in this library.

SARAH: I love libraries.

SARAH: In my land, we court people by throwing potatoes at their head. If someone hits you in the head with a potato, you have to get married.

LIBRARIAN: …

SARAH: (whispers to self in agony) Why is ‘have you read any good books lately’ so hard to say

Networking is haaaard.

ME AT LAST CONFERENCE: Hi I work at a library!

EVERYONE ELSE: …Yes we all do. This is a conference for librarians.

AUSTRALIAN LIBRARIANS: There is a bar across the carpark from the facilities!

*intense librarian bonding*

Hey there!  I’m just reminding you that I do have a store, and if you like free comics and things that I make, I’d sure appreciate your support!  There are many other great vendors at Topatoco too, all worth a browse.
