oh this is just cruel
okay, here we go, a sampling of five of the books that I currently adore
1. Chimes at Midnight by Seanan McGuire. I love the whole October Daye series, but I’ve reread Chimes the most. The mystery and plot and sub-plots are just so well-executed, and there are some character payoffs that have been developing since book one.
2. Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Pretty much always shows up on my fave books list. I love it so.
3. Sparrow Hill Road by Seanan McGuire. It’s a story about ghosts and true love and vengeance and America and the importance of a really good cheeseburger.
4. Three Parts Dead by Max Gladstone. First book in the Craft Sequence and by far my favorite of the three that are out so far.
5. Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch. Second book in the Locke Lamora series, beating out the first book because the first book doesn’t have Zamira Drakasha.

anyway HI ALL! *waving*
Remembering, today, Emily Brontë who was born on this day in 1818. Sadly for the world of literature, Wuthering Heights, published in 1847, was her only work before her death at the age of 30. But her legend lives on through the timeless story of Cathy and Heathcliff, who share one of the most haunting love stories of all time. Happy Birthday, Ms. Brontë!
”Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest as long as I am living; you said I killed you—haunt me, then! The murdered do haunt their murderers, I believe. I know that ghosts have wandered on earth. Be with me always—take any form—drive me mad! only do not leave me in this abyss, where I cannot find you! Oh, God! it is unutterable! I cannot live without my life! I cannot live without my soul!”
-Emily Brontë, Wuthering Heights
The Irish werewolf is different from the Teutonic or European werewolf, as it is really not a “monster” at all. Unlike its continental cousins, this shapeshifter is the guardian and protector of children, wounded men and lost persons. According to some ancient sources, the Irish werewolves were even recruited by kings in time of war. Known in their native land as the faoladh or conroicht, their predatory behaviour is typical of the common wolf, not beneath the occasional nocturnal raid
