The Book Blogger Love-A-Thon is an event hosted by Alexa Loves Books that is dedicated to spreading love for blogs and bloggers. This mini-challenge asked what’s currently making me happy in the following categories.
A Theory of Adaptation by Linda Hutcheon: I love adaptations, particularly of fairy tales, and I’m so excited to have found a book that clearly lays out what’s at stake in creating, reading, and analyzing adaptations.
Fantasy: This is my favorite genre, and I’ve been luck to encounter some very satisfying fantasy novels lately, including Fairest (The Lunar Chronicles #3.5) by Marissa Meyer, Star Cursed (The Cahill Witch Chronicles #2) by Jessica Spotswood, and The Girl at Midnight (The Girl at Midnight #1) by Melissa Grey.
Brandon Sanderson: Sanderson has quickly become my favorite author of modern fantasy. His magic systems are always carefully constructed, and his books are populated by complex people with complex problems. So far, I’ve enjoyed Steelheart, The Mistborn Trilogy, and Elantris.
Stephanie at Chasm of Books: Last year we co-hosted a LotR events, and she always has great posts on books, blogging, and writing.
