Catching up with Alan was hard because she had no plan of action for what to do when she drew level with him as he limped determinedly beside another fence.

-

What sort of plan?” Sin asked apprehensively.

-

neither of them even knew how to make a plan, all they had was this driving rage and the need to find Alan, to save him at any cost.

-

She might not know how to plan. But she could act.

-

“Alan Ryves for life?” Chiara asked, making a slight face.

That’s the plan,” Sin told her, and as if all he needed was to be called, she finally caught sight of Alan.

I am so happy. I love repeating words for emphasis and effect and I always figure mostly people just think ‘that SRB, she has a baaaaaad vocabulary.’ ;)

And to complete the set Miss Cynthia Davies, with her fever blossom and her fire and the pearl of great price.
I like knowing the set exists out in the world! And I like that via the quotes I see more evidence of my boys wandering around going ‘I have a feeling…’ and girls going ‘Have you considered having some sense.’

What to read Next Week:

Name: The Demon’s Trilogy (Completed)

  • The Demon’s Lexicon
  • The Demon’s Convenant
  • The Demon’s Surrender

Author: Sarah Rees Brennan

What is the book about?:

Sixteen-year-old Nick and his brother, Alan, are always ready to run. Their father is dead, and their mother is crazy—she screams if Nick gets near her. She’s no help in protecting any of them from the deadly magicians who use demons to work their magic. The magicians want a charm that Nick’s mother stole—and they want it badly enough to kill. Alan is Nick’s partner in demon slaying and the only person he trusts in the world. So things get very scary and very complicated when Nick begins to suspect that everything Alan has told him about their father, their mother, their past, and what they are doing is a complete lie…

Felt a sudden urge to return to one of my favourite YA series of all time!  So yeah, have some Alan/Sin.  I love those weirdoes.
I think the line ‘lying liar who lies’ - to describe Alan – was possibly a fandom thing from Back In The Day, but I’m stupid, so it might equally be a line from one of the books.   

*claps hands in transported joy* Mama’s lying-faced babies.
I love those weirdos = basically what I feel when I write and hope to inspire in others. ;)

the last time I saw someone criticising one of my heroines for making out with too many people… was yesterday.

My friends, that is some nonsense right there.

**SPOILERS AHEAD** So Mae, from SRB’s The Demon’s Lexicon series, is a pretty young thing with many romantical…

What a lovely thing to find in my tag. A gorgeous essay about Mae from the Demon’s Lexicon and her makin’ out ways.

I have to say it just never occurred to me anyone would ever care how many people a single lassie made out with. When I was seventeen, I made out with well over a hundred people.

Mostly in Irish college. You see, mostly I talk a lot. But in Irish college you can only speak Irish, and I am TERRIBLE at Irish. So instead I would stare in limpid confusion at dudes. 

DUDE: *incomprehensible gibberish*

SARAH: *staaaare*

DUDE: *incomprehensible gibberish*

SARAH: Kiss me you mad fool.

DUDE: She was overcome by my witty repartee!

SARAH: I was overcome with the desire for you to be quiet.

Forced… to speak the language of l’amour! 

It is possible that many of those dudes were just asking me what the time was. Oh well!

Girls can make out or not make out as they please. Boys too. My basic rules for people are: Do your best not to hurt others, be honest… and then do what you want. 

This shouldn’t be a big deal. ;)
