That’s right, I’ve combined two categories. No, wait–I’ve combined two categories and subtracted one. Let me explain…
A few nights ago, while watching the Opening Ceremonies of the 2012 Summer Olympics (not from the awesomeness of London, but from the comfort of my own living room), I happened upon the website and blog of writer and English teacher, Kate Brauning; whereupon, I also discovered my next read:
(Okay… so I was watching the Opening Ceremonies, tweeting, googling and reading blogs. Oh, and eating dinner.)
I’d heard of Shadow and Bone and seen its gorgeous cover posted several places across the Internet, but it was Kate Brauning’s review which finally convinced me to read it. Kate’s review is so well written and informative, I’m not even going to attempt to write one. Hence, the subtraction of a category I alluded to above.
What I appreciate about Kate’s review is how she analyzes the writing and discusses craft. The English teacher side of her obviously loves to give her readers something to take away that, hopefully, will improve their own writing.
