  •  In a burst of escapism (6+ / 0-)

    I read Megan Whalen Turner's The Thief, Queen of Attolia, The King of Attolia, and A Conspiracy of Kings.  All of which kept me from considering homework or the scary contents of my brain for a good day and a half.  They are not perfect by any means but it is rare I find an alt-history fantasy series which can surprise and delight.  The myths are hers, detailed and thoughtful, and the point of derivation is fairly close to the source so it doesn't ring false.  

    ...j'ai découvert que tout le malheur des hommes vient d'une seule chose, qui est de ne savoir pas demeurer en repos dans une chambre.
