Books I'd Recommend:
- How did you discover Holly Black's work? I was in a Chapters book store (around 2002/2003) in P.E.I on vacation, found Tithe and instantly fell in love. I read it at least five times in two weeks, and still continue reading it.
- What appeals to you most about her writing? Her characters and her descriptions of the urban fantasy world. It reminds me of a beautiful old abbey that had all its stained-glass windows broken out of; beautiful but decrepit.
- Which of her books is your favourite? Totally Tithe. I mean, it's Tithe!
- Favourite characters? Kaye, Corny, Roiben and Ravus.
- Least favourite? Luttie-Loo, Spike or Gristle.
- Favourite quote from her books? 'Gone in a faerie sigh'. I will probably get that tattooed.
- What are you currently reading? I'm finishing up Dreamfever by Karen Marie Moning, and will be starting The Poison Eaters later this week.
- Vampires vs Elves: Uh, if this is Magic the Gathering, I'm going to say vampires 'cause the elves are racist and scary. If we're talking about sparkly-power vampires...er....elves.
How did you find the community?
- American Gods by Neil Gaiman
- Sandman by Neil Gaiman
- Dangerous Angels by FLB
- Some William Butler Yeats
- The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare
- The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger
- Witchblade (it's a comic, can that count?)
- The Darkness (another comic, but Jackie Estacado is a hot little piece of evil!)
- Erm... if I think of any more I'll add them.
I was 'Googling' things on Holly Black and this popped up!Anything else?
Erm... not much? I'm excited to finally be apart of the Holly Black community! :D
Little story... When I met Holly Black at a book signing in my city &told her (through hyperventilations of course) that I read her stuff at 11-12, she was like, "Oh man! I'm so sorry if I've caused you any damage! OH MAN!". She's ridiculously cute&awesome.
