Read our full review. Shades of Milk and Honey, Mary Robinette Kowal — A very silly book indeed, but likely to appeal to teenage girls who are just discovering historical fiction. At 28, plain Jane Ellsworth is mostly resigned to being a spinster; despite being a gifted glamourist, she knows that men ignore her whenever her beautiful sister Melody is around. But excitement swirls through the small village when the enigmatic Mr.
Vincent, a famed and brilliant glamourist, comes to town to create a magical mural for the local nobility. Naturally, the two glamourists become rivals, but passion and secrets bubble just below the surface of their feud. The Scorpio Races, by Maggie Stiefvater — This magical tale is set in a world similar to our own, but with limited technology and where strange gods rule the earth and sea.
The islanders depend on the tourist dollars from the annual Scorpio Races — and the fat prize purse. Lyra is a scrappy orphan growing up semi-wild on the campus of an alternate-universe, steampunkish Oxford University. Lyra and Pantalaimon are thrust into a spine-tingling polar adventure involving kidnapped children, talking polar bears, and a beautiful and terrifying woman with a golden monkey. With a generations-old conspiracy afoot, it is up to Gwyneth to put the pieces together, come into her own gifts, and decide who to trust.
The first novel in a previously published German trilogy, Ruby Red has already amassed an impressive international following, with newly minted eager English language fans clamoring for the next two translations as quickly as possible. Much more of an introductory piece with a few twists thrown in along the way, Ruby Red sets the stage for revelations to come. I wish there was a little more background and detail given as to how this particular device was made, or how Sir Newton would have been able to predict the birth date of a time traveler as it stands, this reads as pure hokum , but perhaps that will be covered in another book.
That said, the story moves along briskly with never a dull moment, and the revelations — obvious or not — are good fun and help propel the story along at a speedy pace. As it is in Ruby Red, Gwyneth has all the depth and conviction of a tepid water filled inflatable kiddie pool. Despite some character misgivings and a degree of plot predictability, I did enjoy reading Ruby Red and blazed through the book in a single sitting.
It lasted only two seconds, but that was long enough for me to dump a plateful of mashed potatoes and gravy all over my school uniform. I managed to catch the plate just in time, as my knife and fork clattered to the floor.
Of course everyone was looking at me. I buttoned up my dark blue blazer over it.
They looked as if they had measles. But I was probably just imagining it. Charlotte, beautiful and immaculate as ever, was sitting right there next to Cynthia, gracefully scooping mashed potatoes into her delicate mouth.
The entire family was on tenterhooks, waiting for Charlotte to have a dizzy fit.
On most days, my grandmother, Lady Arista, asked Charlotte how she was feeling every ten minutes. Or sometimes the other way around. The rest of us — my mum, my sister Caroline, my brother Nick, and Great-aunt Maddy — rolled our eyes. Of course it was exciting to have someone with a time-travel gene in the family, but as the days went by, the excitement kind of wore off.
Sometimes we felt that all the fuss being made over Charlotte was just too much. Charlotte herself usually hid her feelings behind a mysterious Mona Lisa smile.
