Marie Antoinette. "A tall girl entered with a smile on her face like a birthday candle—merry, but oh, how it burned. She was made all of cake from top to bottom. Cake and whirls of icing, swirls of icing, rosettes and pipettes and ribbons and twirls of vanilla, strawberry, pistachio, lemon, and lavender icing. Her hair rose up from her head in clouds of meringue, toasted at the tips. Her eyes were bright blue, her mouth bright pink, and she loved like a nervous ballerina. She was carrying a silver tray that steamed with lovely, hot smells that Branwell had almost forgot existed." - from "The Glass Town Game" by Catherynne Valente.
Er spent angående og gleder meg til å lese denne boka. Den er skrevet av Catherynne M. Valente som er en forfatter jeg har likt mye av før, den har flott cover, fine illustrasjoner og over 500 sider å kose seg med og den handler om Brönte-søsknene (ja, forfatterne bak Jane Eyre og Wuthering Heights og sånt) som barn og tenker seg at de liksom opplever et magisk eventyr med en annen verden og sånt. Det høres interessant ut og jeg satser på at det blir kos å lese =D #theglasstowngame#amreading#catherynnemvalente 📚🎨🎮🎶📖
Getting ready to crack this book open
We've developed a really bad habit of missing church a couple times a month (we attend a Saturday night service) to relax and - to be completely honest - hide. My husband often watches something with the kids while I read. The hiding part will end when this pregnancy does. We just get so stressed near the end and lots of grief and pain surfaces. My husband says we're like turtles, which is so true!
