pratyeka said: Hi, I apologize if you've answered this before but I'm trying to attend tomorrow's signing and I was living in Japan for the past few years so I have all your books and Monstrous Affections on Kindle only, will it be possible to get some else (bookplates or something?) signed? Sorry for the bother.

M’dear, no bother at all! I myself am working out trains for tomorrow’s signing as we speak. ;) I am excited to see you there!

Indeed you may get bookplates signed! I have special fancy bookplates I will bring with me.

Tomorrow, in Boston, in Brookline Booksmith at 7pm, said fancy bookplates can be YOURS! I am excite!

→ The Demon’s Lexicon trilogy by Sarah Rees Brennan

" In two worlds, said Alan quietly, there is nothing I love half as much as you. "

My Demon’s Lexicon babies. How pretty is this? And how cool to see Mezentius House, which now I think about it, was fairly Gothic!

Unspoken by Sarah Rees Brennan (1st book of The Lynburn Legacy)

OKAY GUYS LISTEN UP.

This book is going to be one of the most amazing things you have EVER READ IN YOUR ENTIRE LIFE. And here’s why;

  • The protagonist, Kami, is this amazing freaking half-Asian teenage girl, who has gems like 

'Kami'd always retold her fairy tales to make the fair maidens braver and more self-sufficient, but she never had any real objection to the handsome prince.'

'She had worried that she would break if her heart broke, but she wasn't broken. She had lost everything, but she was not lost. It seemed  a worthwhile thing to know.'

  • And Jared, who is hot and amazing and says to Kami things like;

"I thought you would like a weapon better than a rescue."

"I can never think of how to describe the value you have to me, because all the words for value suggest that you belong to me, and you don’t."

  • The book has amazing representation of bisexual and lesbian characters
  • The most important relationships in this book isn’t even romance, it’s all about friendship and family and it’s just the sweetest thing ever
  • And, as I’ve shown above, it’s freaking hilarious. There are FUNNIER stuff, but I  didn’t put them here because they’re either too long or too spoilery.

Of course I also feel the need to mention that no other book(s) in the world will ever hurt as much as this. The author, Sarah Rees Brennan, relishes her readers’ pain.

Which brings me to the author, Sarah Rees Brennan. She’s completed another trilogy, The Demon’s Lexicon, in which there are gay characters and, best of all, and POV character who is a WOMAN OF COLOUR. The series itself it just amazeballs.

She also wrote a novel-length story, The Turn of the Story, FOR FREE. Even though this story could literally make a lot of money for her because it’s THAT amazing. But IT’S FREE! You can find it here. The main character of that story is Elliot, a bisexual character. So obviously Sarah Rees Brennan is an amazing person because she cares about representation of all kinds and she writes amazing stuff for free.

But also she breaks my heart but that’s okay. POINT IS, read all her books! Like now! She also co-authored this book, Team Human, with Justine Larbalestier, which I haven’t read but will soon enough, but I’ve been told that it’s also amazing. Like everything else this lady writes.

And just before I leave, here’s my favourite quote from The Lynburn Legacy;

"Now I feel like the world is hell, and hell is a place where the souls of the damned can still see heaven. Because that’s the worst thing of all. And yet I can’t look away."

This is all much too kind and lovely and complimentary and I do not deserve it, but I am very touched!

I also feel the need to mention that no other book(s) in the world will ever hurt as much as this. The author, Sarah Rees Brennan, relishes her readers’ pain.

… Okay that bit is totally true and I do deserve it. ;)

Fanart Friday: Liannan from The Demon’s Lexicon by Sarah Rees Brennan. 
I absolutely fell in love with the character of Liannan and the concept of her grasping for warmth in the never ending cold of her existence. I also love the imagery of her bright red hair against her pale, cool skin.
Done in acrylic on canvas panel.

Just incredibly beautiful art of my demon baby lady. Happy TDL day darlin’s!

Anonymous said: So, I finished reading the Demon's Lexicon trilogy last night and I am in a glass case of emotions and there is very little fanfiction I find appealing and I am annoyed at the world. Help.

carnilia:

Nonny. NONNY. Let me tell you right here and now that I feel your pain. FEEL IT. I have read those books like 4 times each, and I know well the pit of despair one falls into when the realization hits that there is just no more.

BUT NICK! Your heart cries out. ALAN! Your dreams taunt. SIN! Your soul yearns. JAMIE! Your shattered innocence wails. MAE! Your mind sobs, inconsolably.

Well, NEVER FEAR, my lovely! I have come to temporarily soothe (and eternally add to) your suffering with the revelation that SRB, that cruel heartbreaker of an author, did indeed HERSELF write short stories in TDL universe!

Nick’s First Word (A Christmas Story)
Sorcerer and Stone Part 1
Sorcerer and Stone Part 2
The Arundel Tomb
Quiet In The House
Nick And Jamie Go To The Movies
The Coward With A Kiss
All The Way Back Where We Started From

Look, I am here to tell you that these stories are all A++, 10/10, would read again (I may or may not have read them all at least 3 times, and some of them like 6 times). And, look, I don’t mean to be Judgey McJudgerson, but if “Quiet In the House” doesn’t leave you with a bone-deep well of sadness and/or make you sob uncontrollably, then you are probably dead inside. (Or you are Sarah Rees Brennan herself, who is filled with a dark and terrible power that only grows stronger by the strength of our anguish and tears.) (Alternatively, you’re Nick, in which case: Hey, bae, how are you? Car good? Excellent. Any new, gorgeous blades? Tell me about what’s made you dryly amused lately.)

So, my dear anon, go forth and ruin yourself! Also, come here and talk to me about these books and characters some more. PLEASE. Tell me all about stuff you love and everything incredible in those pages because I LOVE THESE BOOKS SO MUCH SOOOO MUUUUUCH.

Aw, that is very lovely! And that list is proof that I always write wayyyyy too much, but I am so glad if people like it!

… Also, I am totes filled with a dark and terrible power. That’s canon.
